In light of my comments on the covenanters embarrassing the modern Reformed…
I have no problem with people critically evaluating miracle traditions. But in our fear of Rome and Charismania, we must be careful not to do so in a way that completely surrenders the Faith to David Hume. Hume would have made mincemeat of a recent thread discussing this.
NeoPuritan: God doesn’t work extraordinarily like that any more.
David Hume: I agree, but I will raise you one: Do you really believe God doesn’t work in such extraordinary manners?
Hume: Further, would you not agree also that a miracle is an irregular occurrence (earlier in my career I said “violation,” but that was too strong a term) in nature?
Hume: What constitutes an “irregular” occurrence?
NP: Something outside of God’s normal providence?
Hume: What constitutes “normal?”
NP: Something outside the laws of nature.
Hume: And we shouldn’t believe God works that way?
Hume: What about Jesus’s Resurrection?
