If God posted a message in this forum, and said that it was He, what would it take for you to believe that it was really God posting that message?

Is this serious?

“Well all the apostles, they’re sittin’ on the swings, sayin’ I’d sell off my savior for a set of new rings.”

It is a bit fanciful, but still serious.

Essorant,

Interesting question.

If one believes in  God, then one shall  believe God can do anything. So one shall believe the "He".

The message could from  God..as from Bible. But remember, Bible is written down by people not God Himself. So It must be done by human fingers.

and

Don't ask for "trouble".
God did posted Ten Commandments  with his own finger.

Supposing  God wanted to post anything here, He would  single out Sir Ron like He singled out Moses. Then Sir Ron would make a announcement.

No, I don't believe.

If my computer was turned off, and it was disconnected from its power source, and there was no evidence of any tricks by my prankster family members, and the message still made itself visible across my screen, I might be inclined to investigate the possibility.

So the only way you will believe God gives the message, is if a miracle of some manner accompanies it?  What if what is already happening is a miracle by God?  Shall you demand the miracle behave in a very different way than it is already behaving and only in the way that you want or decide it ought to behave in order to respect it as a miracle and respect that God sends it?

Yes.

When he/she restores NOLA, stops violence and returns Chelsea and Matt to those of us that loved them...

then I would believe it was him/her posting..until then..whatever.

To the angel of the church in Ephesus, write this:

"The one who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks in the midst of the seven gold lampstands says this: 'I know your works, your labor, and your endurance, and that you cannot tolerate the wicked; you have tested those who call themselves apostles but are not, and discovered that they are impostors.'"

You want to explain the platypus God?  Since you're here and all.  That's the main question on everyone's mind.

Man I hope God doesn't check the archives and find the abortion thread. You guys will be in trouble.

Ess~ No, hon, no miracles. I just want to make sure that someone isn't playing a trick on me. I don't trust the internet as a source for my messages from God.


Welcome God. How's things hangin'?
