    Is it impossible for God to exist? If something is impossible, it is possible by a miracle.
    Impossible miracles are possible through a miracle. Where did God come from? Miraculously,
    He did not come. How can God be good and still have hell and cause the Great Flood?
    Miraculously. How can God be three persons, including Jesus? Miraculously. How can God be
    happy when everyone around is unhappy? Miraculously. How can you love God? Miraculously.

    My view of miracles is very very very different. The OP reference frame does not have explanations for Christian theology concepts. Others do.

    What is are miracles? To me they are the focus of this song

    Miracles are just an irrational appeal to mystery. There is no objective evidence a miracle is possible. They are defined as something that can't be explained by natural or scientific laws, but not having or knowing such an explanation is not evidence there isn't one.

    Which god, and what objective evidence can you demonstrate it exists at all, or is even possible?

    It would indeed take a miracle for me to believe in a god for which there is no verifiable evidence. Since I still lack belief that suggests that there's no such thing as miracles.

    Impossible miracles are possible through a miracle, for it is written

    ``Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me.''

    Mark 14:36.

    If I would saved you, I would save the satan as well. But no. I have faced reason-less opposition again.

    there's no such thing as miracles. is ALSO written! Guess that dispels the silly notion that just because someone wrote something down that it gives it any kind of credence.

    On the contrary, you made an irrational appeal to mystery, and have yet again failed to even address this. let alone offer anything beyond your subjective unevidenced opinion to support the claim.

    Really? The same verbatim response you made to my post, do you even realise how closed minded that is?
