I have been thinking about this, why we don't see big miracles on the news. All of a sudden it hit me, the horror movies everyone likes are much more evil than anyone ever thought!
What do you think of someone raising from the dead? Miracle or some satanic living dead or vampire being? What beings regenerate in movies, the "good guys" or the evil star of the film? If we were to see a great miracle like this I think we'd mostly be terrified and think it was evil and that is the next thing these horror movies do is reinforce the thought that evil is powerful and can do anything. That is all backwards, GOD is ALL POWERFUL and CAN DO ALL THINGS, I think we need to take back the supernatural for God and constantly state in a mantra God raises the dead and it is wonderful and holy, God regenerates limbs and life and it is wonderful and holy, God is all powerful and it is wonderful and holy. We need to bring our minds back to God does these things and not evil or the devil! We live on God's Earth and we shall not fear as God is with us.
What is your regard to the opinion on this matter?
I think, right now, a lot of our culture is obsessed with the lurid and perverse, and this manifests quite clearly in our films and television. Lots of material about zombies and serial killers! When these movies and TV programs are released to the general public, and the ratings accordingly soar, it sends a signal to the powers that be that "this is what the people want", and so they produce more material in the same vein, and we get inundated with it.
I think the reason for this is actually fairly simple...for many people, this stuff is exciting. It is more interesting and exciting for them to vicariously experience horror than it to sit on their couch at home and twiddle their thumbs. I imagine that many of them have boring office jobs, and not a lot of "real" excitement in their lives. A lot of these people are just plain bored, and their current level of vibration is attracting them towards horror and perversity rather than towards positivity. This is simply a matter of vibration (or taste), I believe.
In old times, such as the eras of the American Revolution, American Civil War, and World Wars I and II, people didn't need this sort of stuff because they saw real horror before their very eyes, and they knew they didn't like the real thing (well, some of them, anyway). Thus they had no reason to want to experience it vicariously.
In our own time, I think the popular culture has shifted so far towards the horror/perversity vibration (almost to the level of ancient Babylon, if those stories are to be believed), that we are bound for the pendulum to swing the other way.
In other words, I think the current shift can't continue in the direction it's been heading. I think people will soon tire of the horror/perversity fad, and will look to experience something more positive.
I think it is also important to mention that I have been discussing these things as what I perceive to be a "general trend", and that there are many exceptions to this trend!
For instance, there HAVE been recent films which depict the forces of goodness performing miracles and utilizing supernatural powers: the new Star Wars films (flawed as they are!), Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and even small independent films like Whale Rider. We even have the occasional religious-themed film such as The Nativity.
So I think it's helpful to remember that we do have these positive examples in the world, if we allow ourselves to notice them.
I also know that there are plenty of human beings who believe that these miracles are actually possible, and are eager to see them in the "real world."
As evidence of this, we need look no further than the members of our own Inward Quest.
Have you ever considered for a moment Wade,that this just might be God reaching out to Us.
I saw the Exorsist and Amityville Horror when they first came out,and I would have to say that they were probably one of the biggest catalyst in my own Awakening.They started me asking questions on Spiritual topics and God, and that is good :) Everything that happens is a perfect unfolding of what is - where is the evil in that?

It is the Church that gave the supernatural powers that God gave us, over to new agism. It is very sad that the Church fell asleep spiritually. I am looking for that connection between faith in Christ and our personal connection to the power of God.

Although this may appear to be true, it is not. Because the Bible teaches that the word of God shall prevail over time!
Yes I agree that the corruption today is vast, but I also know that it is not up to us, and that God will protect his people from the dark forces!

Dear Wade you sure know how to stir the pot for Gods sake and I agree with you fully but it is not Gods miracles that have been stolen for Gods miracles can never be stolen they are allways well and alive albeit in the hearts of his loving people.
The miracles we see in movies are nothing more than greed for money without thought to the young minds they destroy and sometimes even old minds too.
All those school shootings and society going haywire are the direct result of greed and control. If we adults shout loud enough and keep on saying NO we don't want that rubish for our children maybe, just maybe someone will hear us. And than again maybe if we put too much attention on it we might attract worse.
Of course millions of people will need to shout world wide loud enough to be herd but todays society is too supressed and opressed to have time to even bother about something they consider insignificant like movies for there are more pressing problems like finding work and feeding the family.
The interesting fact is that you will not see this type of movie in Moslem countries for the populations there abide by their word of God. Pity we Christians can't do the same.

The comment god is with us, well then he isn't doing a very good job. More people have died on this earth due to religion than any other disease, disaster, deranged person or movie. Besides, this god you speak of decided at least once to kill off all of humainty with a disaster. That's not the kind of thing that I would want to base my life on.
Go ahead and parrott all of the little verses that you have heard from people and all of the little verses taken from a two thousand year old book that was written from people's recount of what may or may not have happened. Not to mention it was written about things that people didn't understand and they explained it in the only ways that they knew at the time. These interpretations from then do not match the same things now.
Jonah in a whale might actually have been Jonah in a submarine type vehicle. ThrEe people following a star may have been three people following a space ship.
And to think that people actually base their lives on things from this book.
