LETTER: Supernatural events we call ‘miracles’ but that are evidence of God

During the recent total eclipse of the sun, the moon appeared to be the same size of the sun.

This was explained by the sun being 400 times farther away and also being 400 times larger than the moon appears.

This was described as a stroke of cosmic luck.

The maternal human egg is the size of a grain of sand.

After fertilization by a single sperm and 40 weeks of growth, a baby has grown to a length of 18 to 20 inches and the weight of 6 to 8 pounds.

Neither of these phenomena is a stroke of cosmic luck.

They are evidence of a creator who assigned the orbits and size of the heavenly bodies and spoke into existence the time allotted for gestation and fetal development.

These are supernatural events we call miracles.

The human heart is darkened when we fail to consider the miracles of God.

Disobedience to the word of God covers our heart with more darkness.

The mind becomes closed to light.

Eclipse of the mind is often total.

There is no longer sufficient illumination to recognize life in the womb.

Passivity in the church to issues such as this adds to the darkness.

When darkness covers the church, it ceases to be salt and light.

No eclipse should be permanent.

We all need light to guide us into the way of peace.

What God has joined together to create life, no man should tear apart.
