Counterfeit Miracles: Benjamin B. Warfield: : Books
Although I disagree with the premise of the book entirely, he makes a great argument for cessationism in the modern church. No proposition clearly perceived to be false, however, can possibly be validated to us by any miracle whatever; and the perception of the proposition as clearly false relieves us at once from the duty of examining into the miraculous character of its alleged support and invalidates any claim which that support can put in to miraculous character—prior to all investigation.

It is at least very commonly supposed that we are bound to examine carefully into the pretensions of any alleged miracle produced in support of any propositions whatever, however intrinsically absurd; and, if these alleged miracles cannot be at once decisively invalidated, we are bound to accept as true the proposition in support of which they are alleged.

Warfield also notes that this age of the massive proliferation counteefeit miracles has its origin not in the Christian faith but simply in democratisation of the faith fusing into the pagan world because of the fact that the heretics, like the donatist, soon claimed to be able to perform miracles too in aid of their theological counterfeih, which miracles St Augustine refuses to accept as authentic.

He moves on to discuss the many miracles in Catholicism, stigmata, Virgin’s milk, relics, etc, paying careful attention to the details of their reports, the witnesses, etc, peppering his examination with dry humour and sly comments. However, once the apostles died, divine revelation ceased with them and so did the need to perform signs and wonders to confirm their apostolic office and divine revelation.
