Ha, I don't know about that I just felt led to say something which I never do & probably did it wrong! But thank u!
The link below may shed some light. Also, the thing that helps me about the miracles that happen in The Bible is that this is the same God that made the heavens and the earth, created life, time, everything, so walking on water, while impossible to us, is nothing to Him. Additionally, this is a fallen world since that day of Adam and Eve and will be until God returns. Does God sometimes intervene on our behalf in what we see as a positive? I believe so, to fulfill His will. I don't claim to know every answer for every question, but I prayerfully hope that this helps.
Continue seeking Him and He (God/Christ/Holy Spirit) will reveal himself to you.
Thank you for your and every one's comments.
I think you did it exactly right proudgamecock and you are welcome. Testimonies like Dylan's are not religious in my opinion, but are based in faith,and most importantly in his spirituality. That being, his personal relationship with God supercedes anything that any man might tell him in how to worship Him. It is impressive to meet a young man whose feet are both so firmly planted on the ground, it is even more impressive when he allows God to take over his daily life and allow Him to run it for him. Therein lies my personal struggle, I always want to take control back over. My ego ? You can bet your bottom dollar on it, it always seems to get in the way.
Think about it not as a religon but a relationship. For the next month talk to God (not out loud) just like you would a best friend about your problems, your unbelief, the things you are grateful for ect. . It doesn't have to be a organized prayer just a conversation. As long as you are persistent and respectful he will show up . Respectfully Ask him to show you he is God he will be more than willing.
What church is this and can you give me the name of the moderator?
First Baptist Spartanburg and that is Seth Buckley, Student Minister.
That's what I thought. Thank you very much!
THanks for sharing!

Unreal, walking the walkand not just talking the talk
exactly God is our friend. talk to him just like you would talk to a friend,he wants to hear from you
talk about a role model for your kids.....wow
Awesome. God can change the world.
Thank you for the link and thank you for listening to me without being defensive or dismissive. I will take in the information you've offered and use it to help myself grow and learn.
Dear Believer, why do you believe what you believe? Why, given thousands of faith choices, did you almost certainly choose the dominant religion of your cult...
This is a common argument made by atheists and a very fallacious one.
What you're arguing is known as "the genetic fallacy". Speculating on how or where a belief originates does nothing to discredit said belief.
Additionally, the wide range of religious beliefs across the globe do not necessarily suggest the absence of God. In fact, I would argue just the opposite. While notions of God tend to differ by culture and geography, the mere different opinions on what God is could just represent different vantage points of the same thing. The varying views of God are not important in this analysis, What should jump out at you is the fact that the vast majority of the world gravitates toward some kind of transcendent power. Honestly, think about what you're saying: so the fact that there isn't a unanimous consensus on God implies that God does not exist at all? That's terrible logic. I will grant you that my point about the vast majority of the planet believing in a deity of some sort is nothing more than argumentum ad populum fallacy, but even that logic is more sound than the genetic fallacy.
I blame Richard Dawkins for a lot of the poor argumentation and fallacious points being thrown around the internet. I debate atheists pretty regularly and a large percentage of them tend to spew his nonsense. Dawkins may be an outstanding biologist but he is possibly the worst philosopher of the past 100 years. He really ought to stay in the lab. It's not my intention to degrade or insult you by saying this, it's just that I'm constantly confronted with these types of arguments and it gets annoying after a while.

I'm very familiar with Strobel. He's often the butt of a joke in philosophical circles, but I believe he's gotten a bum rap. I enjoy his stuff.
I would recommend The Kalam Cosmological Argument and Philosophical Foundations for a Christian Worldview, both by Dr. William Lane Craig. Excellent reading and very convincing arguments constructed with sound logic and reasoning. Check out Dr. Craig on youtube. He literally makes a living from tearing atheists a new.......well, you get what I'm saying.
