    The problem isn’t the people who claim God tells them stuff. The problem is the fanatics who believe it.

    More like the problem is those that think because people can be foolish and error prone God does not exist. Or that because something is not true in some instances, it is therefore not ever true.

    Satan speaks to Catbert.

    More like the problem is that people DON’T think.


    I’m a practising Christian – doesn’t mean that I’m not allowed to use my brain when it comes to matters of religion.

    Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for people to claim to have heard from God when they didn’t. The venerable joke about some guy or girl saying that " the Lord told me to marry you" is usually of that type of nonsense. The hormones talking, not the Holy Spirit.
    .
    Or the proverbial Holy Rollerism where it’s the person’s own emotions, not a work of God. One can’t get the typical Pentecostal type of babbling and strange activities from a study of the New Testament.
    .
    On the other hand, when a Pole I knew couldn’t get a Polish Bible (this was before the Iron Curtain fell), couldn’t read English, but was able to understand part of an English Bible, it’s a pretty good bet that it was the Holy Spirit in operation.
    .
    For most Christians, the Holy Spirit acts like a very strong conscience, telling us when we screw up or shouldn’t do something. Sometimes it’s a strong impression of something we God wants us to do.
    .
    Every saved Christian is indwelled by the Holy Spirit. I’ve never met anyone who heard from the Spirit in words. Sometimes he will put thoughts in a person’s mind. Often it’s events or something one reads.
    .
    It’s hard to describe. I certainly don’t understand it. For example, one day last year I was typing away at a book. Out of the blue, a thought came to mind that “X is in porn”, a girl I’d asked out some years ago. Using Google, it took about 2 minutes to find that person and that person had indeed become a porn “actress”. While disappointing to find out she was doing that, I don’t know what value that knowledge had, or why it popped to mind. Except perhaps that I was to pray for her.
    .
    That type of series of events is pretty unusual, though. When a Christian gets some sort of unspoken word from the Holy Spirit, it’s more a matter of suddenly thinking of someone, calling them or emailing them, and finding out they are having a tough time with something.
    .
    Easton’s 1897 Bible Dictionary has a fair amount to say on the Holy Spirit here:

    Thankfully, Dilbert quashed that scheme. I’d hate to have to acknowledge Dogbert as my ruler.

    My experience is that an awful lot of people who read the Bible in their own language don’t really understand what they read. I’m sure this applies to all religious texts, not just the Bible.

    You don’t need to flame someone for speaking out on his beliefs. s73m’s comment wasn’t offensive or rude, or otherwise improper, in any way. He has a perfect right to say it.

    Never directly address a Troll, it only encourages them


    Flag it ( I did), the nice moderators at GoComics will remove the offensiveness, unfortunately since it is the weekend the rudeness will remain until Monday

    I’ve no problem with Nabuquduriuzhur’s statements, or those of s73m. Both were thoughtful. Yours was s’ not full.

    “The Lord our God”…spare me. At least say “the Lord MY God”. Many of us are not at all convinced of ANY God. Do not impose gods on us, please.

    @BuckyKatt999

    Nthing was ever written without human intervention, and its attendant biases. Ergo, the various “scriptures” are of VERY dubious veracity. Which doesn’t keep them from being used to justify the most atrocious behaviors…
