Miracles, Signs, and Wonders

I was reading another blog about the lack of discernment in the Christian church today and came across this quote, which I borrowed because I think it speaks to the truth of the matter:

“I blame this lack of discernment, partly, on raw zeal for God. We’re spiritually hungry – which can be a good thing. But sometimes, hungry people will eat anything. Many of us would rather watch a noisy demonstration of miracles, signs and wonders than have a quiet Bible study.”  J. Lee Grady

Unfortunately, many will blindly accept any and everything.

1Jn 4:1  Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Do not be remiss in testing the spirits.  It may look, sound, smell, and feel good, but if it does not bear good fruit, it is not the fruit you want to be eating.
