Everything is a miracle by God. Every time you inhale and exhale the air into and from your lungs is a miracle. Everything thing you see is a miracle. Your eyes are a miracle. You see miracles with them. Think about it. You would not even know colors was unless your eyes could see it and tell the difference between all the colors you see.

Miracles upon miracles. So you see the greatest miracles that the Spirit of God performs every day all day long and all night long all over the earth...WE ALL TAKE FOR GRANTED.

How could anyone not love God? No matter what?

Think about this.

Of all the snow flakes that ever falls from heaven. No two are alike.

Now that is a miracle is it not?

The Miracles of God

The Mercy of the Lord is never ending for those who

love Him.

If you need a miracle from God.

Tell me what it is.

I may help you get it.

God will give me whatever I ask Him For.

Technically speaking, the bible is not "evidence" of God's creation.

Theologically speaking those of us who believe in this one God - Creator of the heavens and earth - we trust that the words contained within the books of the bible are inspired by the same God.

Theoretically speaking, none of it makes sense. And that's the craziness of faith. We choose to believe it guides us through this life. We choose to go by what we cannot physically see, but rather by what we cannot see [into the spiritual realm].

Disclaimer: IMHO - these opinions are my expressed opinion and may not be shared in whole or part by the all [Topix] Christians.

I asked what makes you think the bible is the word of god....I watched many of these but they were all images of people accompanied by music. There wasn't even mention of the bible.

I'll ask again "What makes you think that the bible is the word of god?".

Your response here is an approach to believing something but I was actually curious about what makes you think the bible is the word of god.

no - I don't actually. I was asking for insight into your mind as to what makes you believe the bible is the word of god.

For example----if you asked me why do I think George Lucas filmed starwars, I would reference all the evidence that demonstrates that he did film it.

It seems all the answers thus far involve attempts at sounding insightful and wise instead of being forthcoming and honest

2 John, Chapter 1
001: The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth;
002: For the truth's sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.
003: Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
004: I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
005: And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
006: And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.
007: For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
008: Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
009: Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
010: If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
011: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
012: Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.
013: The children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.

"Taste and 'see' that God is good'

We know because we believe and then we 'see'

Trouble with an atheist is they say " i will see and then I will believe.'

God doesn't dance to your tune..you will have to surrender and do it his way ..you don't set the agenda.

You see you will be glutted with your own way...

You sure do spend a whole bunch of your time debating on something you dont think is real. If you dont believe in it, why are you putting so much time and effort battling something you dont even believe in to begin with.

You know deep down inside the Holy Spirit is tearing away at your soul. You just dont want to obey the bible because it will cause you to repent from everything your probably doing.

God directed that The Word should be recorded, thus scripture began.

That God gracefully endowed man with The Word, we can measure back the revelation transparted.
In that we can see The Word is truth.

By natural reason man can know God with certainty, on the basis of his works.
But there is another order of knowledge, which man cannot possibly arrive at by his own powers:
the order of divine Revelation.

Through an utterly free decision, God has revealed himself and given himself to man. This he does by revealing the mystery, his plan of loving goodness, formed from all eternity in Christ, for the benefit of all men.
God has fully revealed this plan by sending us his beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.

Let me ask you......."What makes you think that the bible isn't The Word of God?".

Don't think God would trust us with a user's manual?

During the above mentioned criminal court cases it was revealed in court that the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Christian Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of Australia et al., had knowingly breached Section 35 of the Working with Children Act 2005 – by engaging and continuing to engage persons (“ministers of religion”) in child-related work, knowing that it is child-related work, and knowing that the worker (“minister of religion”) has not passed a working with children check.
In total there were over 2,000 “ministers of religion” and volunteers directly engaged in child-related work within the Church of Jehovah’s Witnesses in well over 100 congregations and church operated internal Ministry Schools with 1000’s of enrolled children, in the State of Victoria, that had not complied with the Working with Children Act 2005 – from July 1, 2008 up until the filing of criminal charges against the church on July 26, 2011. The Church of Jehovah’s Witnesses continues to re-offend.
Awesome!!
Neither I nor any child should be forced to spend every Saturday selling Watchtower propaganda, then forced to turn in time cards to prove we did.
Children should be out playing sports or other activities on Saturdays!!

The fact that you have not provided a shred of proof that it is let alone a shred of proof that this god even exists. You have asserted a slew of positive grandiose claims and provided no evidence or credible demonstration for them. It is no different than asserting the existence of invisible fairies. LOL - and you ask me why I don't take them seriously? LMAO

The same exact answer you would give if I asked you what makes you think that George Lucas wasn't implanted with ideas of real historical events which caused him to make starwars --- which is a real documentation of history.

I am not debating god - I am debating belief in him -- which is real. I feel I would be a good christian as is...I wouldn't have to change --- just believe the mystical claims. I don't believe your bible for the same reason I don't believe in Santa. I have heard people say what you have before -- and just like them -- you assert a grandiose claim without any proof and disregard this fact and don't acknowledge the reality that your claim is simply not credible and that is why it is not being believed.

Have a good one!
