Everything has to be seen to be believed, everything should be rational and logical, everything has to have a scientific explanation to be 'normal'... anything that Science cannot define is considered 'abnormal' , different, hence wrong. What made me sigh during one of our discussions in class about delusions and hallucinations (mental health) of for example somebody who claims that they hear the voice of God- was when one of my classmates asked our tutor: 'what if it is real?' and the immediate reply was- 'then the person is a nutter'.
The world is quickly shifting to extreme perspectives and very, very soon concepts relating to Christianity and God would cease or just faintly exist in the hearts of men. Soon, it would be considered madness and perhaps in the near future even as propaganda. This is the age where Man's knowledge is taking over, where the lines between right and wrong (which used to be very distinctive) is blurring, where deception parades itself as truth and tolerance. It's a sad fact but it is here, it is reality and we are living in this present condition.
I do understand and respect that that is my tutor's opinion and of course based on science, but the reply kind of signified the thinking that most people have now. That there is hardly a place to accomodate anything supernatural, much more Godly- such as healings, the power of prayer and faith, miracles, prophecy, gift of tongues & interpretation, discernment, gift of dreams and many other spiritual gifts that God gives to His children. Simply because it is beyond the logical and the rational, science cannot explain it away, in fact nothing can because these things belong to the realm of the supernatural (not the spooky type of supernatural but I am referring to the heavenly one).
People's thinking are boxed within the social constructs of men and for them to cross over beyond their man-made comfort zone, will only take God's supernatural power. The people of the world is limited to their own fallible theories, concepts and realities. They may not be aware, but it is ignorance and arrogance to deny and challenge the truth that the creation has a Creator.
