I am a skeptic of Medjugorje, but don't worry, not gonna debate in this thread. I'm just here for one thing: Your arguments. Please let me explain.
When a person engages in a topic, be it politics or religion or economics, that person usually, based on information he has and receives, will stick to one of three sides on the topic: For, Against, or Neither. This is the case for such topics as "Is sex outside of marriage bad?" "Should penguins be in zoos?" and "Dose the Earth revolve around the Sun?" I am not advocating for sex outside of marriage, nor penguins or the resolution of the Earth, and neither do I dare generalize the three possible sides of certain topics to all topics. Rather, I'm just giving examples to help explain myself. So when a person chooses a side on a topic, he will usually only listen to those who support his side. Occasionally he might check out what other people are saying, but usually if he dose his ears won't listen to them; instead he'll be listening to himself debate them in his heads, like "Oh they only say that because of this!" or "They just think that because of this!" Now more often than not, this deafness can lead to uncharitable behavior towards others, because the person considers himself absolutely right and everyone else wrong; this isn't self-righteousness, per see, but it is a type of self-love or pride. And, while as Catholics we are required to live by and love the Truth, we are also required to live by and love Charity. And charity doesn't stop its ears when it listens to people; instead, it thoughtfully and honestly considers what others say, and, if prudence should warn it of error, it will, as gently as possible, correct the other person and pray for them to the Lord, because it knows that correction, while good, can only go so far: Only God can go the rest of the way in leading a soul to the whole truth.
I have heard lots of articles and read lots of documents on Medjugorje from the side of the skeptics. Now I want to hear the other side. Please tell me why you think Medjugorje is authentic. I'm not looking for feelings or emotions - "I felt peace there", "I was wrapped in God there" - nor am I looking for spiritual fruits - conversion, prayer, acts of charity, etc. - but rather, I am looking for objective arguments for Medjugorje backed by solid, clear evidence: For example, ecclestial obedience backed by documented cases of such obedience. You don't have to answer in the form of an argument against skepticism, nor do you have to answer in the form of a counterargument against criticism; all I ask for is your arguments.
Thank you in advance and God bless!
