God and Miracles

Continuing on this week's theme of godly interventions in human affairs (see also Meditations 1062, 1063, and Talk Back 112) we'll take a look at miracles and why there are so few in the USA.

Pat Robertson was asked:

Why do amazing miracles (people raised from the dead, blind eyes open, lame people walking) happen with great frequency in places like Africa, and not here in the USA? What can we do to encourage these things to happen here? Is America too far gone for miracles like these?

Pat answers sarcastically:

We're so sophisticated; we've got everything figured out; we know about evolution; we know about Darwin; we know about all these things that say God isn't real... We've been inundated with scepticism and secularism... and overseas, they're simple and humble. You tell them God loves them and they say "OK, he loves me."

In other words, Pat thinks miracles happen predominantly to the uneducated, and that's the answer to getting more miracles into the USA - less education.*


* In spite of Pat's premise that less education leads to belief in miracles, it should be noted that Robertson has a BA from Washington and Lee University, a law degree from Yale Law School, and a Master of Divinity from New York Theological Seminary. He is also Chancellor of his own Regent University. And Pat Robertson believes in miracles.
