    Genuine Christianity is paranormal with its fundamental claim being the bodily resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from the dead. ". . . But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. . . ." -- 1 Corinthians 15:12-14.

    Now a key phenomena is, that those who are yet lost do not correctly understand the genuine gospel of grace. ". . . But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: . . ." -- 2 Corinthians 4:3.

    Another key phenomena is, that those of us who are genuine Christians actually have a personal knowledge of God Himself through our faith in His Son. ". . . And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. . . ." -- John 17:3. Which has the affect that makes impossible for the genuine Christian to deny the faith.

    True. I have a bit of a fascination with the paranormal in general, like: what kind of spiritual creatures exist, are there any besides angels and demons? Not that I ever want to see any

    Ok. But what did you understand from the three arguments I made in regard to genuine Christianity?

    You displayed three key’s that separate the believer from and distinguished from all other worldly phenomena.

    (Imo) Using the word “paranormal” is a bit unusual and will usually bring pushback, but as you carefully assign it’s use some may be less “enchanted” at first and offer alternatives. :)

    That those are paranormal occurences and would not be considered natural
