This morning, a meteor exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia, a city which can generously be described as 'rural'. It's in the Ural mountains, the dividing line between Europe and Asia. over 1100 miles from Moscow. While the area has a population of about a million, it's incredibly remote (sometimes considered part of Siberia); it's where the Soviets made much of their weapons-grade plutonium, so the damage from pollution or accidents would be contained. Despite the complete remoteness of the area, within minutes of the incident, dozens of videos were posted and viewed by millions of people around the world.
Meanwhile, we are told of the constant stream of apostolic-quality miracles happening all around the world. People are being healed - and not just back pain and fevers and the other easily-fakable stuff the obvious sham artists use either. No, cripples are made to walk again, amputees have limbs regenerated from stumps, leprosy is instantly washed away, sometimes even the dead are raised. Most of this happens in remote areas, but some happens in churches right around the corner. Nearly all of it is done at the hands of missionaries who send monthly newsletter updates and flood Facebook with pictures and videos of their kids for the family back home. And yet somehow not a single one of these miracles has ever been caught on camera. Even those miracles performed in American churches with thousands of people (many armed with smartphones), churches who record everything for broadcast and/or review, somehow always seem to escape the cameras.
