So...miracles are documented, but I'm not going to provide documentation because you shouldn't need it. Riiiiight.

Wow. And the funniest part (if I can say any of it is funny rather than so very sad!) is he doesn't even see his own illogic.

Charismatics treat miracles the way evangelicals treat conversions:

Evangelical: We've evangelized hundreds of millions with our tracts and seen tens of millions come to Christ!

Christian: Then churches everywhere should be overflowing. Are they subterranean churches?

Evangelical: But it's a heart change, something only God can see.

Christian: Shouldn't someone whose had a radical, depths of the soul change behave slightly different?

Evangelical: Gotta go! Conversions are down in DarkestAfricastan! Our stats show only twice as many conversions as population size. More evangelism needed!

Even Jesus showed the signs and told people to believe Him because of the works. He actually put the evidence forth for people...not just talked about it. Paul said that he showed the signs of an apostle and that affirmed his office as an apostle. Those were first hand accounts that he was calling on people to draw from...not just word of mouth. These people are so inconsistent with the Bible that it is ridiculous for them to expect a Christian to take them seriously.
