Satan will mix truth with lies to make it hard to determine what is true and what is not. Just like he did when talking to Eve through a snake.
2 Corinthians 11:14 Satan himself keeps transforming himself into an angel of light.

2 Corinthians 11:14,15...Satan himself keeps transforming himself into an angel of light. 15 It is therefore nothing great if his ministers also keep transforming themselves into ministers of righteousness.

I guess that explains why you do not see the need to study God's word the Bible. All you have to do is wait for God to talk to you.
Excuse me?
I do study God's word!
You might pray that God would talk to you too!
He always tell the truth... Written, and verbally!

Don't be dismayed at good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends."

A small boy once approached his slightly older sister with a question about God. "Susie, can anybody ever really see God?" he asked.

Busy with other things, Susie curtly replied: "No, of course
not silly. God is so far up in heaven that nobody can see him."

Time passed, but his question still lingered so he approached his mom: "Mom, can anybody ever really see God?" "No, not really," she gently said. "God is a spirit and he dwells in our hearts, but we can never really see Him."

Somewhat satisfied but still wondering, the youngster went on his way. Not long afterwards, his saintly old grandfather took the little boy on a fishing trip.

They were having a great time together. The sun was beginning to set with unusual splendor and the grandfather stared silently at the exquisite beauty unfolding before them.

On seeing the face of his grandfather reflecting such deep
peace and contentment, the little boy thought for a moment and finally spoke hesitatingly:

"Granddad, I--I-- wasn't going to ask anybody else, but I wonder if you can tell me the answer to something I've been wondering about a long time. Can anybody - can anybody ever really see God?".

The old man did not even turn his head. A long moment slipped by before he finally answered. "Son," he quietly said. "It's getting so I can't see anything else."

Last night I had the strangest dream,
I never dreamed before.
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.

I dreamt I saw a mighty room,
The room was filled with men.
And the papers they were signing said
They'd never fight again.

And when the papers were all signed,
And a million copies made
They all joined hands and bowed their heads,
And grateful prayers were made.

And the people in the streets below,
They all danced round and round.
And guns and swords and uniforms
Were scattered on the ground.

Last night I had the strangest dream,
I never dreamed before.
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.

"I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it." -- Dwight Eisenhower

How do you know it is not the God of the world that is speaking to you?

I let God talk to me through his word the Bible and if I want to talk to God I pray.

“It is a great adventure to contemplate the universe, beyond man, to contemplate what it would be like without man, as it was in a great part of its long history and as it is in a great majority of places. When this objective view is finally attained, and the mystery and majesty of matter are fully appreciated, to then turn the objective eye back on man viewed as matter, to view life as part of this universal mystery of greatest depth, is to sense an experience which is very rare, and very exciting. It usually ends in laughter and a delight in the futility of trying to understand what this atom in the universe is, this thing—atoms with curiosity—that looks at itself and wonders why it wonders. Well, these scientific views end in awe and mystery, lost at the edge in uncertainty, but they appear to be so deep and so impressive that the theory that it is all arranged as a stage for God to watch man's struggle for good and evil seems inadequate.

Some will tell me that I have just described a religious experience. Very well, you may call it what you will. Then, in that language I would say that the young man's religious experience is of such a kind that he finds the religion of his church inadequate to describe, to encompass that kind of experience. The God of the church isn't big enough.”

I find it pretty selfish of people that thank God for their many blessings and gift of life. What makes you so much more special to receive blessings and a great life than to those 6 million starving children around the world? Why do you pray to God to help those who suffer instead of you taking action and helping them yourself? Don't you see how selfish you actually look when you pray to God about the good life he gave you? I myself have the read Bible two times and see that it is full of contradictions and lies. The God that I "would" but don't believe in should not have to call to a human to do his job. He would not send a man named Jesus to save us from our wrong doings. He especially wouldn't create a place to send us of never ending fire and torture for those who do not worship him/her throughout our lives. Is it not time you people begin to actually open your mind and reconsider your religion? I have read and studied enough history of mankind and the world to know one thing for certain: For thousands of years throughout known history of man, we have only created our own Gods to forgive us for our wrong doings. I say we keep all religions out of school teachings and leave it to those who do not wish to learn about our world. If you need a book that was written by man to understand your morals, than you are just as much of a fool as the person who wrote it.

There is one thing Jehovah God cannot do: It is impossible for God to lie or contradict himself as some indicate:
Ezekiel 18:4,20 Look! All the souls—to me they belong. As the soul of the father so likewise the soul of the son to me they belong. The SOUL that is sinning—it itself WILL DIE.

Ecclesiastes 9:5,10 For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are CONSCIOUS OF NOTHING AT ALL...
10... For there is no work nor devising nor KNOWLEDGE nor WISDOM in Sheol,(the grave) the place to which you are going.

Some would try to convince you that not only does God lie but he contradicts himself as well. Those who claim that God will keep sinners ALIVE so he can torture them in some hell fire forever are saying that God told lies and contradicted himself in the above scriptures.
I DON'T THINK SO!

Because He tells the Truth... Satan only lies 1/2 thruths!

"if I want to talk to God I pray"
How do you think I, or anyone else talks to God?
I question, why do you not get any answers?
JW?
.
Look... except for that time in the shed...
It's been kind of Subliminal... sometimes immediately,
sometimes after a while, like letting me figure it out...
and then He affirms the answer I get!
Remember too... you don't get answers for Everything, as
He keeps some to Himself!

But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Best get rid of your shiny pagan cross, research shows cross falls into that category.

The casting out of demons, gifts of healing comes under the heading of magic now days.

I read in the internet where Satanists are planning on having their prayers said in school due to the 1st Amendment saying that government can't endorse a particular religion. So, do you think that will happen? Where Satanists and Muslims and others will have their bibles taught to children as well?

Let us hope so.
In FL the Gov. just signed a law that lets any religion pray at outside events like football games. A group of Satanist showed their support for this as we will be there to pray to Satan within the law

Than why dont you follow what he said? Sell all that you have and give the money to the poor and have faith that god will provide what you need?
Matthew 19:21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
Mark 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
Luke 18:22 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.
SO DONT GIVE ME SHIT ABOUT YOUR JESUS WHEN YOU NDO NOT BELIEVE IN HIM ETHER!
