So whats the importance? like i know that it strengthens Christians faith and shows God can make the impossible possible but what else?
Like the miracles Jesus walks on water and where he drives out demons what are there affects on Christian life. Also the miracles where Jesus heals the paralysed man and when he heals Jarius' daughter. Likr there he shows power over sickness and life and death but what are effects on modern christian life what is the importance?
The importance is:
Do you believe that they happened?
Yes or no?
No? then you have no faith in what was recorded by dozens and hundreds of people. you have no need to believe in anything.
Yes? then you are showing God that even when you were not there to be an eyewitness, you believe that those that did see the miracles are telling the truth. you have sided with God in knowing the truth from a lie.
It matters not if Jesus did one miracle or hundreds. (although he did so many "that all the books could not hold the things that Jesus did.") The importance of miracles is so we can take hold of things we can't understand happening. Miracles transcend the laws of nature and only God can do that.
The church has never changed and in it we see these miraculous happenings and for the same reason to strengthen and convict.
I don't know your denomination But in the Catholic church there has always been miracle workers right up to today.
the effects are conversion for those that witness and believe.
They are factual accounts of things that Jesus did here on Earth. The miracles that Jesus did attest to the fact that he really is God, and also reveal how much God values faith, as Christ often stated that people's faith played a role in His healing them.
As for the vast number of people who die every day mentioned by another poster, God gives us life and never promised that we would live forever. Man doesn't have the right to take life, God does.
3 million die every year from drought, starvation and the diseases that causes. a further 200,000 die every year from natural disasters – acts of god!!
That means god kills more people every second than all the miracles ever claimed for him!!
They are important because influential people in our society actually believe they happened, when of course, they are all fiction.
My mother's 67, and she's on medicare a I think, the one with more coverage.
I'm 30, I live far away, but she's saying that she's starting to get joint pain pretty much constantly, arthritis I would guess. She's one of these people who doesn't trust pharmeceuticals, doesn't want to get hooked on a pain killer, etc. I personally have a great deal of faith in medications, for instance I find Vicodin to enhance my concentration, where I know it makes others drowsy.
She just told me she's trying acupuncture, and she sits in a hot tub and/or swimming pool a coule times/wk, and she's "hoping something will provide lasting relief."
I believe the only thing she takes is ibuprofen.
I'm wondering if there's anything I should tell her to ask the Dr. for, or maybe there are other remedies. I don't want my mom to be walking around in pain! lol, thanks so much!
bengay heating cream. it heats up on contact and relaxes the muscles, relieving them of pain.
She can have tight muscles that need to be freed up to get rid of the pains. Unfortunately there aren't many who can do them. a year ago I met a gal who has MS and all her dr.'s told her that she had arthritis in her knees. I asked if she minded if I freed them up for her and she agreed to it. in less than five minutes she was up and walking around without her walker. She couldn't believe it. so you have to figure out exactly what it is she has and then find one who can help. If specalists for MS can't get it right how many other dr.'s can?
NOTTINGHAM, Md. – Elwood "Bunky" Bartlett says a New Age book store made it possible for him to become an overnight multimillionaire.
He and his wife, Denise, were on their way to the shop where he occasionally teaches Wicca and Reiki (RAY'kee) healing when they stopped at a liquor store and bought two $5 Mega Millions tickets for Friday night's estimated $330 million jackpot. On Sunday, he said one ticket was a winner.
"if it wasn't for this place I wouldn't have won the lottery," Bartlett said Sunday at Mystickal Voyage, the New Age shop.
Four winning tickets to the Mega Millions jackpot were sold in Maryland, New Jersey, Texas and Virginia. Lottery officials said Sunday they cannot confirm the validity of Bartlett's ticket before they meet with him on Tuesday.
"There's no reason to believe it's not legitimate, but it has to go through security," said Maryland State Lottery Director Buddy Roogow, who said he has spoken with Bartlett.
Bartlett, an accountant from Dundalk, said he made a bargain with the multiple gods associated with his Wiccan beliefs: "you let me win the lottery and I'll teach." Both tickets he purchased had numbers chosen randomly from the computer.
Bartlett had not decided if he will accept his winnings as an annuity or choose the lump sum cash option. the jackpot could get larger once ticket sales are tallied, Roogow said, but the lump sum payment would be at least $48.7 million, or about $32 million after taxes.
According to preliminary calculations, each ticket would be worth about $82 million if the prize were taken in 26 annual payments.
Bartlett said the money won't change him, although he plans to invest in Mystickal Voyage. "I'm going to live my life like I have been," he said.
The odds that any ticket would match all five numbers — 8, 18, 22, 40 and 44 — and the Mega Ball number — 11 — were one in 176 million.
If estimates of the jackpot hold true, it would be the fourth largest in the lottery's history. it was known as the Big Game when it awarded jackpots of $363 million in 2000 and $331 million in 2002.
Mega Millions tickets are also sold in California, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Ohio and Washington.

I saw this! cool for him! I'm happy that he won!
I'm a Christian but wanted to answer.
I dont think there is an age limit….
If you're talking about CPR and stuff like that… There's no age limit… I just recommend you be 13 and over
I don't think there is one…
We were trained in CampFire when I was in 1st grade… Then every year afterward to earn patches… I don't remember when I was officially certified but I'm pretty sure that as long as you are properly trained… You will be old enough…
my 11 yr old daughter does "St Johns" and has the cert, 10 yrs + to join.
I tried a hair removal a couple of years ago (i think it was immac – now veet) and it burned my legs and i had red patches all over my legs. I really want to try a cream again, as shaving takes ages but i was wondering what the best one was, and if a certain brand does creams for sensitive skin.
underarms , bikini get it waxed
don"t use hair removal cream .it creates lots of problem like its burn your leg or where you use. its butter do waxing
These seem like the best option to me but the idea of "maybe" bleeding for up to three months doesn't sound natural and there is no way I am willing to put my body through that.
