Your visions of scrying prophets are hilarious.
Only literate men can communicate with a god? It only happens that way? You gotta learn English first. Or does God write in Latin...
Lol. "The Word of God ". A book that talks about itself? No. Thats a book of men, regardless on whether they know the word of God or not. It's not
a written word, it is a spoken, living word.
Nowhere did I say only literate men can communicate with God. I said Abraham had clear one-on-one communication with God (as per the verses).
Instead of throwing out wild accusations, maybe try quoting some scripture to support your position. As for the Bible as the Word of God...
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (KJV) - "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction
in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."
Hebrews 4:12 (KJV) - "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul
and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
James 1:22 (KJV) - "But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves."
Isaiah 40:8 (KJV) - "The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever."
In John 1, we see the Word was made flesh (in Jesus)... from God.
John1 1:1 (KJV) - "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
John 1:14 (KJV) - "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full
of grace and truth."
Matthew 4:4 (KJV) - "But he (Jesus) answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the
mouth of God."
Thus proving that the Word of God has existed since the dawn of time (in the beginning), was in written form before Jesus arrived on the scene (it is
written) and was expanded upon during and after Jesus (beyond the first five books of the Bible; the rest of the OT and NT).
I understand if you don't believe what the Bible says or its validity, but the story is from the Bible. Where else would you go for truth but the
original source where the story came from and the context surrounding it? Sounds like you just want to argue for the sake of arguing and not discuss
the subject matter. That's fine, I've proven my point.
