But before we can take God's word on it, we have to take YOUR word that this really is God's word. That's too far removed along the "friend of a friend of a friend" line for me. I can't take YOUR word for it.
When God has something he wants to tell me, I'm sure he knows where to find me.
AS I made clear in my comment, I was referring to the God of the Bible. Which god are you referring to?

God has already told you what He wants to tell you, and I'm sure you know where to find it (HINT: HOLY Bible).

Unlike straighties; gay people and Methodists worship 'Our Living GOD of Unconditional Love' who lives within our souls and spirits
.
The First Commandment reads:
++++++++++
1. I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt have no other Gods before me
++++++++++
.
so we don't worship fake 'bibles' like you snarling evangelical fundamentalists do

Is that the same book where He lays out His rules for beating slaves, or killing women who aren't virgins, or forbidding eating at the oyster bar? Yeah, He sounds like a real winner.

How do you know He didn't communicate through the Islamic Quran? Or the Hindu Vedas? Or the Buddhist Tripitaka? Or the Book of Mormon? Or the Sikh Adi Granth? Or the Mayan Popol Vuh? Or the Druid Mabinogion? Or the Egyptian Amduat? Or the Bajoran Kosst Amojan? Or the Norse Havamal? Or Dianetics by L. Ron Hubbard?

Is God AWARE that world is LITTERED in books that claim divine authorship? And He's going to TORTURE people FOREVER just for picking the wrong one? This God of yours sounds like some piece of work!

What's so difficult about bringing His super-all-important message to people PERSONALLY? He can do ANYTHING, right? But instead, He puts it into the hands of fallible, lying humans, for them to hand out to OTHER fallible, lying humans, with nothing but eternal pain lined up for those that aren't convinced by the stories of talking animals and magic fruit trees and dragons and unicorns.

I think that if I were God, and the most important thing to me was saving souls from eternal damnation, then I would put aside my hobbies of giving clubbed feet, cleft palates, and conjoined twins to newborn babies, and I would hold off on ordering African gangs to murder witches who aren't witches, and instead I would make some actual personal appearances. I would put an END to all the people FIGHTING over who has the right interpretation once and for all.

You're not likely to convince me that any morality comes from a book which proclaims that humans should not kill one another, but then FIVE MINUTES LATER provides an exhaustive list of all the reasons you can kill people, like getting tattoos, cutting their hair, or wearing polyester. It's nothing but barbarian justice and ancient myth. If God wants to convince me, He needs to come do it HIMSELF. If He knows EVERYTHING, then He already knew that YOU weren't going to be able to do it.

Do you smack a LOT of people through the internet? How does your arm fit through the cord? What if someone is on wi-fi? Do you BEAM your smack across the Starbucks? I think you just like to TALK smack.
And how did your 49ers prediction work out? Mr "smart man" Culliver? Yeah, thought so.
I LOVE a good SMACK DOWN!
