Has God Communicated With Mankind?

There is more than a distinct possibility, rather a strong probability that God has communicated with mankind (male and female). Within each of us is an overwhelming passion to know and embrace a deity of some sort. For the Hindu, it may be 1 of 30 million gods and goddesses, for the Muslim it may be the god, Allah, invented by Mohammad, or for the Buddhist, they may disobey Siddhartha Gauthama (The Buddha) himself and offer worship to him, or for the Christian it is the God of the Bible, the God of all creation Jesus Christ. Even within atheists there is such rabid emotions of anger and frustration attached to their notion that “God is just a Santa Claus” that within them is an attachment to the constant nagging notion that God actually exists! Otherwise why be so angry about a bunch of people believing in a Santa Claus!? Do they ridicule their own or other children to be opposed to a belief in the existence of Santa Claus? Of course not! In fact, they often times embrace this belief in the lives of their kids. But they cannot fathom or stomach the idea that someone else holds fast to the correct belief in the existence of a Creator-God. This they try to stamp out. There is constant communication with all men through creation and through their own conscience that He, God, exists.

So for the animist, some Buddhists, the Muslim, the Jew, and the Hindu, these all have the same communication resulting in a drive, albeit wrongly placed, to know and embrace deity in some way, shape, or form which shows that within each man is a built-in device pulling and drawing them to know God Almighty. For the Bible-believing Christian, we adhere to the reliability, sufficiency, and inspiration of the Scriptures which provides constant and direct communication to all of God’s creation. First, to the unbeliever, that we are all desperately lost in disobedience, defiance, and deception toward the God of the Bible and opt instead for the delusion that He does not exist OR for a god of our own mind because we simply find Him…unacceptable. This rejection of the King of Glory ultimately results in the eternal separation from Him – which is nothing more than our heart’s wish for our entire lives. This separation is the absolute and complete removal of any and all things that have anything whatsoever to do with God Himself: all things good – comfort, satisfaction, peace, rest – all lost forever as they are/were products of Him! This eternal separation is communicated to us in the Bible as Hell. God the Father sent His Son to die for this disobedience, defiance, and deception of ours so that as John 1:12 says, “For as many as believed Him (Jesus) to them He gave the right to be called sons and daughters of God, to those who trust in His (Jesus) name” So we see that God communicates the solution for the unbeliever.

For the beliver God communicates that His word – The Scriptures – The Bible is sufficient and “necessary for doctrine (correct doctrine), reproof, correction, and training in righteousness that the man of God may be complete for every good work”. Believers do not need the mysticism of the Hindus where there are visions and whispering guiding us around by our nose into greater deception, we do not need the myriad of constant man-made hierarchy supposedly acting as “intercessors” between us and Almighty God – like the Roman Catholics do. We do not need to pray 5 times toward Mecca, go on mandatory pilgrimmages, or execute “infidels” in a jihad, as the Muslims do. We don’t need to work our way to God Almighty – He has, through His Son Jesus completed the work so that you and I can have eternal life and joy in Him if we are honest about our sin, humble in crying out, and repenting of our former dead fleshly behavior clinging to His finished work on the cross for our sake we can KNOW that we have eternal life in Him. Why? Because He HAS communicated it in His word and through His Word.

      • You’re being a bit disengenuous with that reply. Evolution is the bedrock of atheistic denial and has everything to do with a theistic vs atheistic worldview. Unless you’re going to tell me you are a Deist.

      • You may want to brush up on your definitions bud. A-theos = without god. Atheism is the belief that god does not exist. It does NOT mean “lack of belief in a deity” that would be apistis or apisteuo. Are you an apistis? No, you are a “neo-atheist” which I can detect from your Dawkins, Hitchins, Harris redefinition of atheism. They redefined it because trying to defend the declaration that there “is no god” was absolutely untenable. No one can make that claim. So, like cowards, they retreated and denied. Now, evolution has EVERYthing to do with atheism (unless of course you are an apistis) in that it has been the ONLY answer offered when asked “how did we get here?” or “why are things they way they are?” well…a star exploded to form your left hand and a different star exploded to form your right…on and on and on. Has God communicated. He has…and atheists everywhere are pissed off about it and seek in vain to silence it.

      • You may want to either purchase a dictionary or use the Google for more than finding young earth creationist sites. It’s a lack of belief in God(s). That’s it. It’s a simple concept and has nothing to do with any other topic besides whether you believe in a deity or not.

      • “purchase a dictionary or use Google” hmmm…I guess thats a comeback of sorts. It isn’t a “lack of belief” thats moronic – I got an idea. How about you research the etymology of the word atheist since obviously you seem to get your definitions from “young earth creationist sites”. You will find that atheist is formed from “a” without and “theos” god. Not, as your young earth creationist site sources supposedly say, “a” withouth and “pisteuo” or “pistis” which is belief. You do the research kid. I’ll be here waiting.

      • “redefine”? I get it. I point out to you who it was that actually redefined atheism and WHY they redefined it and your response to me is “You are trying to redefine”. I tell you to research the etymology of the word atheist and you respond, like any neo-atheist “its nonsense” without, of course, ever looking into it. You really are an unread atheist. I guess that is no surprise. Most aren’t. Pick up a book. Get to know your worldview. It isn’t MY fault you’ve embraced a ridiculous and indefensible position. When you read a couple books on your world view and have an intelligent well-thought response, I’ll entertain your replies again. But for now, off to the library with you and stop getting your world view from Bill Maher movies will you!?

      • Lol. Pick up a dictionary. That’s all you need. You are trying to redefine a word like a blathering imbecile. I know what an atheist is. I am one. You are not. Who do you think will have a better grasp on atheism? A real atheist or a theist. I know what the root words are. Now look at the modern definition you dolt.

      • You have no clue what the definition of your adopted worldview is. It is obviously apparent that sadly, you are an emotionally charged yet unread pseudo-atheist that knows less about his worldview than a theist does.

  1. You misunderstand the frustration from atheists. Do you understand the difference in the levels of violence seen from believers in God compared to the levels of violence seen in kids believing in Santa Claus?

    • Oh I understand the frustration quite well. Its what I would call a cop out. Its like me saying that I am not an atheist because of all the genocide violence that I’ve seen carried out by atheists like Stalin who is responsible for slaughtering 16 million of his own people – 10 million of which were Jews. or that I just cant embrace atheism because of the genocide violence carried out by atheist Nietzche-loving Adolf Hitler who once said,

      National Socialism and religion cannot exist together…. The heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was the coming of Christianity…The deliberate lie in the matter of religion was introduced into the world by Christianity…. Let it not be said that Christianity brought man the life of the soul, for that evolution was in the natural order of things. (Hitler’s Secret Conversations 1941-1944 published by Farrar, Straus and Young p6-7)

      Wow, he really sounds like he would fit in with neo-atheists today – and their cult leader Richard Dawkins.

      No, this nonsense about supposed “violent religion” is simply smoke and mirrors to hide from the fact that an atheist has a hatred for the God that created him and plays the fool by putting his hands on his eyes and chanting “there is no God, there is no God”.

      That is not to say that Muslims, a radical religion built on violence and not on the words of Jesus who says to “love ones neighbor as themselves” and “love one’s enemy” or “bless and do not curse”. Its easy to turn on the TV and see innocent unsuspecting women and children blown to pieces in the name of? Wait for it…Allah – not Jesus. YET the atheist will actually defend the Muslim at least half the time and argue that Christianity is “just as violent”. When, in reality, Bible-based (not Pope-based) Christianity has never been violent but rather the victim of violence throughout history from atheist Emperors, to atheist Monarchs, to atheist dictators and Premiers.

      Yes, I understand the frustration quite well. But its time the neo-atheists man-up and admit they hate the God that created them and will believe ANY fairy tale that makes Him go away in their minds. But it won’t happen.
