“He is Not a God of Miracles”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet
Numerous and varied have been the approaches used by many for centuries to deny the miraculous. In our day it is common for religious-minded individuals to accept the miracles of the past but to deny the same in this “enlightened” day. Others seek to provide naturalistic explanations for the miraculous, in order to demonstrate that God and his anointed servants simply work within well-planned but required bounds. The effect of both approaches is a weakening of faith and an increase in the distance between man and God.
