Bible Topics In The Christian Library
There are many in the religious world that claim they have an ability to speak in tongues, heal the sick, raise the dead, and etc.  These men even are convincing many innocent folks of this.  The problem with this doctrine that many are teaching concerning miracles is that miraculous gifts no longer exist in this age.  Think along this line.  Today I will change my teachings if ONE “miracle worker” will meet me at the hospital of their choice and let me pick the room giving them a chance to prove this doctrine.  These miracle workers will claim that I am tempting God with this challenge, but the Bible states differently.  The Bible states that Christ confirmed his teachings with miracles (Acts 2:22).  The Bible tells us to try the spirits to see if they are of God (I John 4:1).  The challenge is there, but there will be no takers!  The Bible teaches that these miracles will come to an end (I Corinthians 13:8-10).  This passage states that tongues and such will end when “that” which is perfect is come.  Friends, “that” is not Christ.  “That” is the written word of God.  Miracles existed to prove the teachings of the Christ, and the Apostles.  These miracles are no longer in need this day, we have the written word that is complete and perfect.  Let me urge you to come to the Church that Christ died to establish (Acts 20:28), the Church of Christ.  What must I do to be saved?  Hear the Gospel (Romans 10:17), Believe (John 8:24), Repent (Luke 13:13), Confess Christ (Matthew 10:32-33)and be baptized (Acts 2:38, I Peter 3:20-21).  Read (Matthew 7:13-14; 21-23)!
