    What do you think is the major hinderance for the church of today to perform the miracles that...

    Jesus and the Apostles did? Why aren't we experiencing the miracles that were recorded in the first-century church today? Do you think there is still the move of God there was then? Why or why not?

    I always wondered that about God not as present today as then. Because it seems like if her were there would be more believers. I don't know, except that God wants us to live by faith, and I do believe there are still miracles happening just now it is on a more personal level and not so noticeable to us.

    Thanks Diane! Miracles are not as noticeable as then, because of a few things I believe:

    1) Our reliance upon them.
    2) Our faith in them
    3) We have not been taught correctly concerning our authority and 'power of attorney' given to us through the atonement of Christ

    All three of these play a major role in, what I believe to be, infallible proof.

    We need to train disciples to carry out the tasks set before us. Christ told US to go in His Name, or in His stead (as Power of Attorney) or on His behalf. I believe that this is what either makes us or breaks us as miracle-workers...

    The MIRACLES reported performed by Christ, or by His Apostles in the Holy Bible were performed by God, through the prayerful requests of either Jesus or in the case of His Apostles through Jesus intercession with God. There are many many miracles happening by God throughout the world even today, but we are not always made aware of them.

    I agree with Dave and for the same reason. The world in Jesus' day was tiny in comparison to our world today. Thus, I am not convinced that we are not experiencing the same miracles as first century believers, only more so.

    whatever is not of faith, is SIN -

    people are looking to prayer shawls, shofar's, fasting, feast days, books, guru's, self help and etc -

    Jesus is the only way and when people commit "spiritual adultery" by placing their faith is rock music, tv shows, psychology, when they should be looking to Jesus and His Word -

    Prayer shawls are a joke - even in Corinthians we are told not to cover our heads "men" and it has to do with things like this, which actually "replace" the Holy Spirit and or Jesus who is our true and only "covering"

    In effect a shawl, a mentor, a shofar, a particular prayer, hebraic roots movement and more are all saying, that Jesus did not do enough at the cross, which of course is untrue -

    The church is where it is because they have compromised and shaken hands with the world
