Miracles in the Bible

A “miracle” may be defined as an event, act, phenomenon etc which cannot be explained by science. But the question is, whose science?

As humans, we must accept that we only know so much. There may be many aspects to our universe that science hasn’t yet touched, much less explored.

We must accept that God can do the impossible. For what is impossible for man is possible for God. There are some skeptics who argue that some miracles in the bible are nothing more than fairy tales. After all, for example, in the book of Joshua, how could God have caused the sun to “stand still” without disrupting the entire equilibrium of the solar system? Did he perhaps cause the earth to stop spinning on it’s axis? I do not know, but I do not think such a thing is hard for God to do.

God knows how to stop the sun from going down. If he did so by causing the earth to slow down its rotation, or if He did so by any other means, I do not know. What I know is that He did it. And He can do it again if He so chooses, for as long as He wishes, and with whatever frequency He chooses. He is God. And God, as a perfectly clear understanding of and a perfectly comprehensive manipulation of, the sciences as we humans put it. After all, He created all things.

I will be listing here the miracles I remember from reading the bible, and I will be adding more as time goes by. Check back for updates.
