And yet they happened. And have been recounted by credible witnesses.
Like the storyof a baby was declared dead by doctors but who regained life hours later. The doctors who reported this have no religious agenda.
My point is that G-D is not a concept. HE is as real as you and I. And as such HE is experienced by those who accept HIS reality.
Failing to realize this is what causes some to dismiss their stories as being "too good to be true".
2. Agreed, He is not a concept. And, yes, some of the stories are true. But, it's quite weird that they have the appropriate story for every homily about the bible reading, and that the moral of the story fits exactly as a resolution to the conflict. Yes, the conflicts mentioned exist in reality but for them to know every bit of it is just unbelievable..like a scientist studying the god particle, a legislator thinking of voting on the RH bill, and the like.
Again, I agree that He is not just a concept, but what I do not agree is how His followers professes about His greatness and existence.
