Hey Man, Take a Seat!

Inspired by George Eliot (1818-1890)'s quote, "Blessed is the man who, having nothing to say, abstains from giving us wordy evidence of the fact..". The titled responsion is...

if we are in doubt about something, then we should not hesitate to ask questions, whether it be by email, in person or even just on the telephone. We must not feel that we are being asked to give evidence of our own faith, for this would be ridiculous. But we do need to know exactly what you believe and why. Then when you ask me a question, I can show you why my position is right or wrong, in order that you can learn from the mistakes of the others.

It is a very strange thing that if God really exists, he would be so boring as to never speak to any of his creatures. Surely God would want us to understand him and worship him; wouldn't he? Why should he be boring and why should we listen to him when he is so full of life? If God truly exists, then he certainly would not let us down by not speaking to us, unless of course, God did exist and was boring. This leaves us with one possible solution to this problem, which is that God is boring!

There is no way to test God, except to put up a cross and pray to him and hope to receive answers. That is the only way that someone can prove or disprove God. He does not speak to us on the telephone, email, or on the telephone. In fact, I am quite surprised that some Christians say that God does speak to them through dreams and visions, so we can actually verify whether he really does exist or not.
