Are you really sure that it is only talking about metaphorically??
Are you really--really--really--really--really-"SURE"????????????????
For if you hold to this belief, and yet say you believe in God and Jesus and all this which would then have to include miracles, would you not be also saying that the miracles which Jesus preformed and others in the Bible didn't really happen and that they were just an imagination?
And besides, what is a Miracle anyway?
Is it not just something which normal mankind believes is impossible to do?
So would you not be making God smaller than he is by not believing him when he said that "ALL" things were possible in his name!
Besides, all that Matter is , is slowed down energy!
And energy is just the result of thought from the zero point energy plane!
So it is just mind or the thought of a mind which decides what is possible or not as far as making things happen on a physical plane which normally may seem impossible to the normal mind!
