Do you believe that the sun stood still in the time of Joshua (from the Bible)?
I think you have to take the old Testament with the proverbial pinch of salt. Just stories to explain things by people who knew very little.
I believe that God can create miracles even when we go through storms. So yes I believe that the sun stood still until Joshua was able to fight off his enemies.

Also during a battle - Joshua 10:12-14 - the sun stood still about an whole day -
So when they put these two together the missing day was found and the shuttle was then scheduled. So science had to once again give in and prove that the Bible is real and true and also that God exists - ....

about ourselves than about Him, attributed to Thomas Merton.A rather thought provoking quotation. What does it tell us about the person who:Knows and understands the evil their god did or does, but writes it off to "God's ways are inscrutable" or "God can do whatever He wants...
