I started a similar thread about a year ago, without success, so I thought I'd give it another try. Perhaps a new batch of Christians will have some genuine miracles to relate.

Jesus said: "...believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these..." (Jn14:11-12).

Therefore, from among 2.5 billion Christians worldwide there must be an abundance of spectacular, verified miracles. Let's hear about them. I am speaking of genuine miracles here, defined as events for which there is NO possible natural explanation, and backed by solid evidence (not just anecdotal hearsay).

Of course those of other faiths (and non-faiths) are welcome to present their miracles also.

Hmmmm..... a disappointing start. Come on guys. Let's hear about the miracles. I had hoped this time there might be someone from all the billions of Christians out there with something to share.

It's a real miracle I'm still alive. I nearly died as an infant. Thought that was over and a done deal, but I survived a car crash as a passenger. I nearly drowned several years later. Those were a few incidents off the top of my head. And, slighty over 10 years ago, one chronic condition I had went into remission. Not sure why, but I attribute it to a strong faith and a strong will. I've attended churches of various denominations and noted how everybody view Christ in so many different ways.

What you describe are fortunate occurrences; they do not qualify as miracles, since such occurrences are fairly commonplace. Many people nearly die as an infant, survive car crashes, nearly drown, and have their disease go into remission. A genuine miracle is something for which there are no natural explanations - for example, if you had a functioning eye appear overnight in an empty eye socket. That would be a genuine miracle. Do you have anything of that nature you can relate?

Nietzsche's Girlfriend,
That's nothing. I saw where the rainbow touched the ground and there was a pot of gold beside it. Unfortunately I couldn't stop because of traffic. Darn the luck.

Nietzche, I understand this sounds crazy but I once saw one too. It was so vivid with the most beautiful deep blue sky backdrop that it took my breath away. We pulled the car over and I could not help but think of God.

I have some personal miracles God has blessed me and/or family with but these bickering boards are hardly the place to share such personal experiences that are Holy Blessings from our Loving Creator.

This is about as close to a miracle as I have seen:

Well, to say I am disappointed would be an understatement. Where are all the miracles Jesus promised? He said: "...believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these..." (Jn14:11-12). Yet not a single genuine, verified miracle has been forthcoming on this thread (or any other thread, book or publication, for that matter), despite the 2 to 3 billion Christians worldwide. It does make me wonder about the validity of some of Jesus' promises.

I was supposed to have died a number of times back in 1997-1998. I have severe Crohn's disease and the doctors didn't get to me in time. On 10/4/1997 my colon ruptured. I felt it 'blowing up'. The doctors had to do emergency surgery. It took 4 hours and even then, I was given a less than 1% chance of surviving. They even told my parents to make funeral arrangements when they got home. The rupture caused the bacteria to run rampant in my body. Sepsis. The sepsis caused a stroke, the stroke caused the 13 seizures. The sepsis made my lungs stop working. All this happened within 5 days of each other. I didn't know about it, fortunately, because I was in a coma. I missed my birthday on the 9th because of the stroke I had that day. After a week, I got pneumonia(hope I spelled that right). I ended up with 3 quarts of fluid on my lungs so I was put on oxygen but still felt like I was drowning. I was weak and only weighed about 90 lbs. soaking wet. I'm 5'6" so you can imagine how skinny that was. Now, almost 14 years later, I'm still here. I became a Christian 6 years ago. I was one back in 1997 but back slid. I used to be a heavy smoker and drinker. I was so depressed so drinking helped drown out my problems. (Stupid of me). After countless medications and experimental drugs that have killed people, I now don't take anything for my Crohn's disease and I'm doing great. I do thank God everyday for without His intervention, I wouldn't be here and I wouldn't be in heaven either but now I know that's where I'm going when the time comes. God has truly been too good to me. Sometimes I don't feel I'm worthy of it because there are some people who are really good people but are not spared. I do wonder why He has shown me more mercy and given me more chances than I feel I deserve. My memory is great. I can't even tell I've ever had a stroke. My memory was fuzzy at first but it wasn't all because of the stroke. It was all the medication and pain pills and shots and being put to sleep numerous times and the many times I've been sedated. Now, without all that stuff in my system, my mind is 100% and just as sharp, if not sharper, than ever before. It feels good to be able to memorize a lot of things and not forget them. I feel like a true miracle.

I have to burst your bubble, but there aren't "billions" of people out there reading your thread, I'd venture a guess somewhere around a hundred people have even opened it up.

Maybe you could put an ad in the New York Times?

Stacy

I am glad that you survived, and I probably would feel like you if I had recovered from such an ordeal. However, I do not think it really qualifies as a miracle. Even if you had foregone the use of doctors, and medication, and relied only on prayer, this still would not qualify, since a small percentage of people will recover in similar circumstances, regardless of their faith (or non-faith). A genuine miracle is one where there is no possible natural explanation. Nevertheless, I agree that you are very fortunate to have recovered, and should understandably be grateful for this.

S. A. S. L. says:
I disagree. A miracle is a miracle regardless of how small or large. I do consider it a miracle because I was given up to die by many specialists and doctors. They could not do any more for me. By all accounts, I shouldn't have survived it and they were completely shocked that I did. I had lost so much blood, I was supposed to have died in the emergency room. I was given 4 units after my surgery. So, I was about 4 units low on blood. There is no natural explanation to why I survived. Sorry, but miracles come in all shapes and forms. So you wouldn't think it to be a miracle when a child is born given that they're born everyday? You don't think it's a miracle when people manage to get food on the table every night for their kids even though they're struggling? Miracles happen all around us but some are to busy looking for the great big ones that they miss what's right in front of them. "You miss the forest for the trees." They're all around but you have to actually take a step back and look. If you're posting this forum looking for that 'one' miracle, then you've failed to see the whole point of posting. If you read someone's life changing experience that they see as a miracle and then deny that it was a miracle then you're not going to have many posters.

It's a miracle Nico has not added(or should I say, taken away) from this discussion.

You were a true miracle, Stacy. NO way you would have survived that one without Gd's help.

Ignore the one who said otherwise. Maybe he didn't know what sepsis is, or how much of it got you.

Truly a terrifying experience. My blood ran cold just reading about it.

But I see that in Celsus' eyes, my miracle will be discounted too.

Thanks. When I think back on it, it gives me the chills as well. I don't know what constitutes a 'true miracle' in Celsus' eyes. What was your miracle? I consider it a miracle to be able to get up every morning and exercise. It's a miracle to be able to breathe. I guess some don't see it that way. Actually, my colon ruptured, I passed out and 5 days later, I opened my eyes. But the bacteria coursed through my body. Sepsis is usually deadly. That's why the doctors gave me a less than 1% chance and they were trying to be optimistic. I would love to hear your miracle no matter what others think.
