In this CNN piece, If You Hear God Speak Audibly, You (Usually) Aren’t Crazy, author Tanya Luhrmann writes that talking to God, and hearing answers, is common in people who pray. She doesn’t affirm whether or not God actually speaks to people (thank god), only that the people who claim to hear God arent’ crazy.
I have to ask this: If you believe that God DOES talk to you, then don’t you feel a little bad that he didn’t answer the prayers of all those parents of kids who had cancer? What kind of God talks to you about your life, but allows an entire race of people to be killed, an entire country to be victimized, or a school to be terrorized? Who was praying when they were murdered? Why didn’t God talk to them and warn them? ”It wasnt’ their time,” ”it’s not for us to know” or “they went to a better place” are not good answers.
So, yes, if you believe God talks to you, you are nuts.
