Miracles have captivated human imagination for centuries. They defy the boundaries of what we consider to be possible, challenging our perception of reality.
Miracles come in many forms. Some are monumental events, like the unexplained healing of a terminal illness, while others are subtle whispers of hope, guiding us through life's challenges. Throughout history, cultures across the globe have embraced these divine interventions, often attributing them to a higher power or cosmic forces.
But what exactly is a miracle? Is it a suspension of natural laws, or a glimpse into a deeper spiritual reality? In this episode, we’ll explore various perspectives and delve into the different dimensions of what constitutes a miracle.
Our journey today will take us through the miracles reported in the Bible, such as the parting of the Red Sea and the miraculous healings attributed to spiritual leaders. But miracles are not limited to religious contexts. We'll also explore the miracles of nature, those awe-inspiring moments when the natural world astounds us with its beauty and power. From the breathtaking sight of a sunset to the intricacies of the human body, we'll uncover the miraculous all around us.
While miracles often provoke wonder and faith, they also spark skepticism and debate. So we want to also examine the skeptical viewpoint. Is it possible that miracles are simply the result of unknown natural phenomena or the product of our deeply ingrained desire for something beyond the ordinary?
We invite you to open your heart and mind as we embark on this fascinating adventure together.

Welcome to "Seek & Find with Dr. Marc Rivera," where we explore the big questions of faith, life, and meaning. In today's episode, we'll be diving into a topic that has sparked controversy and debate among Christians for centuries: "once saved, always saved" or the belief that salvation cannot be lost.
The concept of eternal security is grounded in the Christian doctrine of justification, which holds that believers are made righteous through faith in Christ. However, there are different interpretations of the biblical passages that relate to the issue, and these interpretations have led to varying theological positions.
Some Christians believe that once a person has truly been saved, they cannot lose their salvation no matter what they do, because their salvation is secured by the grace of God. Others believe that a person's salvation is conditional on their ongoing faith and obedience to God, and that a person can fall away from their salvation if they reject or turn away from God.
In this episode, we'll be exploring the biblical and theological basis for the belief in eternal security, as well as the perspectives of those who hold different views. We'll also be discussing the controversy surrounding this topic, and how it has impacted the way that Christians understand their relationship with God and the role of faith and obedience in the Christian life.
So sit back, grab a cup of coffee, and join us as we delve into this important and fascinating topic.
