Sadly,,I think the real reason,is that people over there believe the Bible,,Take it at its word so to speak.While here we think its all just a nice story,not truly real.I see too many pastors saying its just a story,or only for those times,not for today.That it could be explained away by modern thinking,medicine,or science.We make far too many excuses for not believing.
I am shocked that a Pastor would say anything in the Bible is “just a story”. Guess I shouldn’t be, but I am.
You are right, though. And I have often thought that discounting the miraculous that we see - or crediting a doctor, science, medicine — is part of the reason we don’t see the miraculous for what it is. It’s there, but we don’t recognize it. Not to say that doctors and medicine and science aren’t part of God’s miracles, for I think they are. Not as dramatic, of course, but still.... In a land where demonic activity is strong because Satanic worship is strong, where visions and dreams are relied upon, God deals with people differently.
