Most everything in God comes down to hearing His voice. That is why the doctrine that says that God does not speak today is so insidious and dangerous. It attacks the very heart of our walk with God. If God does not speak then faith, specific obedience, and His direct involvement in our lives all falls apart. Faith, the Bible says, comes from hearing, and hearing comes from someone speaking, and that Someone is God.
This. Is. Reality.

There is only one God. You called me a liar for saying you have made such comment, so I showed you where you said the exact thing.

I am sorry you cannot accept what Jesus taught, but it gives you no right to call Him a monster.

Man up and own your words, and stop making false accusations. It took me 5 seconds to find you saying what you denied saying.

Sure they have. For example, they are calling God a monster, and when asked to explain, they say Christians do not worship the real God, they worship a false "perception". It is another way of saying Christians are actually pagans who worship a false god, an idol. They know the real god, we don't.

Such slander is special "knowledge" they come here to spew, and for whatever reason they are allowed to do it, even though it violates the forum rules. I asked Mystic to repeat his comments at the Judasism board, because his comments apply to Jewish god more than to any other god, but he refuses to do so, because he knows it won't fly there.

No. You are not talking about the same God and that's a huge part of the communication problem.

The Bible plainly speaks of other gods...people can follow the breadcrumbs to their God(s) by whatever It endorses and/or abhors.

Well, then the argument is that Christians are really not a Christians (followers of Christ), but pagans who worship false gods, while you worship a real God.

If thats the case, just say so. Why be so sly about it?

That isn't what I was referring to. I was referring to this quote. The bolded part.

Many claim that they receive “special knowledge” of godly things from a spirit that whispers them truths.

These groups of individuals mock the Lord continually calling Him vile names and accusing Him of being immoral

Anyone who can reason know they are poisonous. Do not let them lead you to destruction.

Matthew 7:13-14
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it.

You said none of you have claimed special knowledge from God, so I gave you an example of such claim.

If someone has knowledge that hundreds of millions of Christians follow a false god as opposed to Jesus Christ, then that kind of knowledge is as special as it gets.

Wouldn't you agree?

I'm not saying anyone is worshipping any false Gods. One must do their own research to find that out for themselves. What I am saying is that tenets vary by Gods. And that some Gods are more jealous than others.

One more time:


WITHIN THE CONTEXT AND ONLY THE CONTEXT OF HEARING THE (HOLY) SPIRIT'S VOICE. NOTHING ELSE. THAT'S WHAT I WAS REFERRING TO. THAT IS ALL I WAS REFERRING TO.
