About Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield. Mjracles refutes this theory by noting that factually this is most certainly false as an examination of the apostolic fathers revealed that miracles far from increasing actually completely ceased with the apostles.

Warfield also notes that this age of the massive proliferation of 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 mirqcles, soon claimed to be able to perform miracles too in aid mifacles their theological cause, which miracles St Augustine refuses to accept as authentic.

Jose rated it really liked it Oct 30, Of course, I should have already have known this when Mirafles in his introduction to his Institutes, refuted his Catholic’s opponent’s claim to orthodoxy by citing the many miracles which has occurred among them by pointing miradles his doctrine too was confirmed by many miracles and signs and wonders, the miracles and signs and wonders of the Apostles, which Calvin of course does claim to teach faithfully.
None of the apostolic fathers claimed to have performed any miracles and their record or witness of miracles were extremely scarce, most of them gesturing towards the miracles performed during the apostle’s time and none contemporary to themselves.
I am still a Reformed continuationist but this work by Warfield is a MUST for critical discernment of charismatic error. No trivia or quizzes yet.
