Why doesn't God just do a bunch of miracles today, so skeptics will finally believe?
Would it matter to you if he did?
And if so what kind of miracle would you like to see?
Sometimes I say to myself, "If God did go around doing miracles all the time, everyone would certainly believe?
But I'm not so sure it would make that big of a difference. Early on in Jesus' ministry and before he pissed off the Religious rulers of the day, He was a Rock Star. He drew huge crowds wherever He went. He had 12 roadies, everyone thought he was da bomb, He had many groupies and they all wanted to see his next show.
The problem with this was that many of these people came to Him to see a healing, a raising from the dead, a feeding of a crowd with just a few fish, they wanted to see some sort of miracle. Not actually listen to what he was saying.
Do you all remember the story when Jesus looks at some crippled dude laying on a mat being dragged around by 4 of his buds? Jesus says to him "take heart son, your sins are forgiven". Then a bunch of the religious teachers were saying to each other "Blasphemy! This man talks as if he were God. So Jesus tells them "OK dorks, would it be easier for me to say your sins are forgiven or get up and walk? So then Jesus tells the cripple to "get up, pick up your mat, and go home". And of course, dude did. Although many believed some did not. And this just made the religious teachers and rulers even madder at Him.
Would a miracle change the way you feel about God?
