How Should We Approach Signs and Wonders?

Dave “the Luddite” VanVickle and I are eating meat and answering emails (not at the same time). We answer your questions about the importance of signs and wonders when it comes to evangelization

We answer questions like: Should we pray for signs and wonders to convert hearts? What approach should we take when we perceive God speaking to us or when someone says God spoke to them? What’s the deal with the charismatic movement in general? What effect do signs and wonders have on new converts?

Snippet from the Show

The idea of signs and wonders is to confirm the kerygmatic message.

1 Corinthians 13:8-10 – “Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect; but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away.”
