    He speaks through scripture. He can speak individually to our spirit. He can speak through situations, and a variety of different mediums.

    Not our nation.
    Think about it, LP. If you didn’t know your father and all you had was a book of stories told by men thousands of years ago who wouldn’t understand a lick of our society today… then that book was written down by someone along the line and translated a few different times… and then when you finally sat down to read it it had stories of global floods, fire from heaven, talking donkeys, and even talking bushes… Would you really follow your father’s teachings, or would you think for yourself because they guys passing his word on didn’t know shit?

    Food for thought.

    Omnipotent power and he can't find a way to communicate with humans in a way that isn't effeminately indirect or often times even destructive.

    Would you work for a boss who was this ambiguous and felt he couldn't be fucked to interact with his employees?

    You'd quit because you would think he was an incompetent fucking asshole.

    fair enough.. dex and jason.

    but i'm not sure if god necessarily doesn't talk to us..

    God's primary means for giving us guidance is the Bible (see John 16:13). The Bible is our rule book of faith and practice. If we know and understand the scriptures, we will be well on our way to having His guidance. He never guides His people contrary to the clear principles of His written Word.

    The Bible says, "As many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God" (Romans 8:14). Jesus said that the Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth (see John 16:13). In the book of Acts, there are recorded instances where the Holy Spirit gave personal guidance. He said to do this or not to do that. He gave revelations. And He still does all these things! He guides by means of specific scriptures that suddenly come alive for you. He guides by bringing people to you providentially to give you advice and counsel. He guides through circumstances. But you must be filled with the Spirit.

    There are many other ways that God can guide you. If your heart and life are centered on God, His Word, and His Holy Spirit, you can rest assured that He will direct your path.

    Theres a reason why we are seperated from God. A holy God cannot dwell amongst sin. Light cant dwell with darkness. soon as you turn a light on in a dark room the darkness scatters. The state of human beings is not Gods fault, we once communed with God, with chose the state we are in. God provided a way back. Once you understand this you can choose to have a personal relationship with him, he will guide and interact with you as much as you can handle. Hes ALWAYS speaking, you dont always percieve or tap into that.

    heard about this while watching Proving God on the History channel, the "god gene"

    God gene - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    in short, it's been found to relate to monoamines in your brain, which are also involved in the "getting in touch with god" sense that is heightened while on acid or mushrooms, mescaline, etc.
    essentially, certain people have more of an ability and urge to connect with the sense of god just like some have a predisposition towards alcohol and the like
    mind you, this isn't meant to take away from the reality of spirit stuffs

    My son has a relationship with his imaginary friend because he has an imagination.

    You have a relationship with God because you have an imagination.

    I have a relationship with my bitch because she’s real.
