A Hypernatural Discussion

Daniel Dyke and Dr. Hugh Henry, contributing writers to Reasons to Believe, describe hypernaturalism as a third option to naturalism and supernaturalism in this piece.  They also discuss how hypernaturalism would explain miracles like the parting of the Red Sea or the coin found in mouth of a fish which Jesus used to pay the temple tax.  Here is an excerpt:

God the Creator is necessarily outside of the universe He made—hence, He is able to control the forces of nature. Natural law is God’s servant. God has the authority to use the forces of nature to implement His will. Hence, through hypernaturalism, many of God’s miracles can be explained as a combination of divine power and natural law.

Additionally, in this article, they write of how hypernaturalism is a more plausible explanation for the origin of the universe and of life.

Enjoy!

Stand firm in Christ,
