If you have faith in "God"
Then you would have enough faith to agree that "God" can tell itself better than you or anyone else can.

It's all back-handedly insulting, really, as somewhere in our early teens, instead of building a stronger connection to our intelligence we fall so far away from it that we have to crawl through miles of bull crap to get smart again.

Wouldn't it just be easier to explain the telepathy / Hive Mind theory and advise others that if they practice focus and teaching others in their imagination that they will eventually begin drawing the necessary intelligence and wisdom needed?

Is it really necessary for me to call them all into a little room and serve as a middle man who tosses in all of those other things that God does not tolerate like homosexuals and Wal-Mart?

Isn't it better to teach a man to fish so that you don't have to keep fishing for him?

I'd like to answer that. I'm going to rephrase the question but I want to ensure that it's the same:

Do you mean to say that if God has power, he has power to speak for himself? Or perhaps if God has the ability to speak he could speak for himself verses have prophets speak on His behalf?

"if God has power" Check out Earth Quakes, Hurricanes, Volcanoes, Tidal Waves, Planets, Stars, and Galaxies. Those seem immensely powerful to me. But, of course, I'm only Human.

Question: Do you write your thread title before or after you type your OP? The reason I'm asking is because your title seldom goes with your subject.

I'm saying that I suspect that we are all connected to one another through a hive mind.

That hive mind retains all of our accumulated better wisdoms and learnings and is a pool of knowledge accessible to all of us.

So instead of insisting that a preacher draw from that pool of knowledge and second-hand the information to everyone teach the people the basics of drawing from it themselves.

That's a natural force.

I'm talking about a sentient intelligence.

So then my assumptions are wrong, the preachers are not attempting something this technical (nor believe in it) and rather just tricking everyone to psyche themselves up with a Dumbo's Feather?

You're going to have to attempt this one in English.

Texas is a country?

Or do you mean New Zealand?
