    The parting of the waters or the dry ground underneath? 3 occurrences

    Why try to make one seem greater than the other when they are invariably intertwined?

    Alan, for me ... the greatest miracle was the plan for and act that led to my eternal salvation.

    No argument here, My conversion was "MY" personal greatest as far as I know. But as you said in a post yesterday. "You've missed the point of the Original post".

    This is a thinkers question.

    Greeting and salutations Mr. PreachTony. Thanks for joining in. Why ask why?

    Because it is a puzzle as to the need to segregate one from the other. In all my years it is the first time I have ever heard someone make an attempt to do that.

    Precisely. The miracle of the water parting and the miracle of the ground beneath being dry are, for all intents and purposes, the same miracle. Why attempt to create a division and hierarchy where none is necessary?

    Perhaps this question is sorta like one I might ask; not out of a sense of trying to make one (?) greater or more powerful, but just a random weird thought that pops into my head from time to time.

    Sort of like if I walk into a room and see a point of light where there is no obvious source, I'll search to find whether it's a reflection or a source I just didn't see at first. My wife thinks I'm weird, (probably am) but this is the sort of thing that drives me bananas until solved.

    All that just to say that I can comprehend the subject question as one just out of a "mind that follows a slightly different course"!:laugh:

    Live and learn Revmitchell. Now you have something to look forward to. Knowing you are in the presence of a man whom can exasperate you at will that is; your first thought tomorrow will be "I wonder what that new idiot on the forum has posted.:thumbs:.

    I am not aware of anyone who is exasperated by you.

    PreachTony just for future reference a "question" is not an attempt to do anything other than create thought and response.:flower::

    sounds Just a like a man (I guess) that has "just want peace" included in his Avatar, who can explore thought without becoming defensive. WHY, why, couldn't you just assert my stupidity like the others. :confused:

    For some reason the bible records the words "on dry ground" each of the three times water is parted for crossing. I find that interesting. But I do march to the beat of a different sax.:godisgood::jesus:is God too.
