Our Reasons to Believe passage from the Word of God today is Psalm 90:2. It reads, "Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God." 

Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from Charles Spurgeon. He said, "If your creed and Scripture do not agree, cut your creed to pieces, but make it agree with the Bible. If there be anything in the church to which you belong which is contrary to the inspired Word, leave that church."

Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "God and Nature - Four Problems of Cosmology" part 7 from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli.

Objections Against Miracles

The main task of the apologist, with regard to miracles, is to answer all the objections that seek to prove that miracles are impossible. Remember, the objector here is not a historian who has investigated every event in all of human history and concluded that not one of them is miraculous. We do not have to meet the objection on the historical level by showing that some particular events have been miraculous. Rather, the objections operate on the philosophical level, the level of possibility. Each objection tries to prove that miracles are impossible (or overwhelmingly improbable). If miracles are impossible, then they are not actual, and if no miracles ever actually happened, then Christianity is false. For the fundamental claims and doctrines of Christianity are all miracles: Incarnation, resurrection, salvation, inspiration. If any one of these objections is valid, the whole of Christianity is refuted.
