Is the Christian God on holliday?
Serious question...

God used to do lots of miracles and have prophets and stuff, he seemed to actively oversee our salvation.
Did he get sick of it and send Jesus down as a means for us to save ourselves so he could go on holliday?

RE: Is the Christian God on holliday?
Are you suggesting not a single Christian believes in any sort of stories of revelations or miracles post-Jesus?

We each have our own stories of visions, prophecy, miracles, etc. The Catholics have some fantastic ones. We LDS have our own as well. I can imagine other Christian groups have some as well.

I can agree with the idea though that many Christians keep on vehemently arguing that "miracles happen", while we haven't seen those in 2000 years now - and even those "original" miracles have only been "recorded" as hearsay.

All in all the case for miracles is weak, if not non-existent.

Don't cling to a mistake just because you spent a lot of time making it

Yeah well pre Jesus saw seas being parted, mana falling from heaven etc. Why have these large miracles stopped in an age that can actually use them to massively spread faith and save billions of people?

Nobody laid blame with anybody for non-existent miracles... it seems you feel personally responsible, but you shouldn't Wink

If you make remarks like "Like it's our fault. Rolleyes" when nobody has blamed you in the first place, this is the kind of reaction you can expect...
