That place — her people and leaders — were and are deeply in my heart as an image and reality of what shared-life under God can be. However imperfect of a church that it is, it is a healthy church because people know how to square their lives with reality in an honest and humble way. Find This Book in a Library.

They teach that suffering makes a powerful contribution to the spiritual life, all without focusing on the apparently wonderful works of God. Spiritual fathers of old have argued that believers need to accept suffering, even with thankfulness, to weaken their self-obsessed spirit, and do so without stipulating how God must receive glory.
One could also mention judgment miracles e. More disturbing is the facile classification of theological attitudes toward the miraculous as cessationist and noncessationist. All believers are cessationist in some ways.
For example all adhere to the uniqueness of Christ Matt. Evangelicals are not like those who hold to continuous, normative revelation through any one person or body as in, for example, Mormonism. No theist can a priori rule out any interventions by God. Even the most conservative cessationists hold that miraculous events will occur in the Tribulation.
The reviewer has come across some cessationists who think that the outer geographical edges of Christianity manifest the miraculous more frequently, or that a miracle-filled time will prepare the earth for the horrific final period. A case can even be made often by non-Christians that miracles are more often manifested in non -Christian hands. Why is it that the supernatural power of God over disease, death, and the kingdom of darkness cannot overwhelm a Western skeptical secularism into spiritual submission and church growth?

The author narrates the story of some Buddhists becoming Christians because a calf was raised to health, but this result is not consistent with all examples in Scripture e. This is one of the reasons non-Christians hesitate to believe American presentations of the message about Christ. Unfortunately some Christians view any human peculiarity, oddity, or fleshly response as demonization.
Also a flat reading of Scripture by untrained but dynamic pastoral leaders, who preach, for example, that Christians need to climb trees physically as Zacchaeus did to see Jesus, can be gently corrected by Western scholars. Certainly the normal expressions of the extraordinary are not a necessary part of Christian living and ministry. The reviewer suggests the following counsel. First, miraculous gift-cessationists should fill their prayers with faith in God, rather than carefully guarding them with self-protective, face-saving verbiage.
Prayers are not to be professional chants like those expressed by non-Christian priests. Also cessationists should genuinely rejoice on hearing testimonies of the unusual and miraculous. To be skeptical at firsthand may be the legacy of a secular worldview. However, one need not apologize for seeking to be discerning.
For example the promise of asking for a mountain to be cast into the sea Mark
