I suppose this passage should inspire me to praise God for his gift to us that we might heal each other. I think that to look at it plainly, it is beautiful. However, I find that I am looking at it with a skeptics eye and it just seems like it could be a cheap trick — perhaps this is in light of the ‘cult of personality’ hucksters who use religion as a vehicle for power. I imagine there were plenty of those back in Biblical times, as well.
Why would I begrudge the performance of God’s miracles through man? With God all things are possible, and this is simply evidence to support that. Perhaps this miracle is simply too flashy for my personal taste.
