Counterfeit Miracles by Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield
He sets out by first refuting a popular theory at that time that miracles continued after the death of the apostles until the 4th century when it ceased because the Christian faith was not in need of any miracles, the wheels of the missionary work apparently taken over by imperial endorsement. Counterfeit Miracles by Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield. James Tessin rated it it was amazing May 05, But the theological reason Warfield gives for the cessation of miracles was that miracles was a sign to confirm the Apostle’s authority and their revelation.
However, Warfield notes that there are some very interesting and disturbing parallels between the miracles reported by the patristic fathers like St Augustine and some of the pagan miracle tales which has already existed before, which doubtlessly points to a convenient co-opting of pagan miracle stories by Christians as the Christian faith became much more widespread which was somewhat uncritically recorded down by St Augustine.

None of the apostolic fathers claimed b.b.warfueld have performed any miracles and their record or witness of miracles were extremely scarce, most of them gesturing towards the miracles performed during the apostle’s time and none contemporary to themselves. This book is no different. No proposition clearly perceived to be false, however, can possibly be validated to us by any miracle whatever; and the perception of the proposition as clearly false relieves us at once from the duty of examining into the miraculous b.b.warfleld of its alleged support and invalidates any claim which that support can put in to miraculous character—prior to all investigation.
I can’t imagine writing with authority on as many subjects as he did, and here he particularly applies himself to the historical understanding of miracles and the many imitations and claims to miracles that have been made over the years, both within the church and without. It is at least very commonly supposed that we are bound to examine carefully into the pretensions of any alleged miracle produced in support of any propositions whatever, however intrinsically absurd; and, if these alleged miracles cannot be at once counterfeig invalidated, we are bound to accept as true miraclee proposition in support of which they are alleged.
However, once the apostles died, divine revelation counterreit with them and so did the need to perform signs and wonders to confirm their apostolic office and divine revelation. This is actually a series of lectures given by B. Having said that, I didn’t agree with everything he wrote in this thesis, but if you have the time it is a worthwhile read.
