God’s silence teaches more than what the “revealed scriptures” do!
God communicating with father of John the Baptist, or mother Mary … could be of human origin because if God had really communicated to Mary about Jesus as His only begotten son to be sent to earth through her, such a great event should surely match with her later response. She did not care for the child even like an ordinary woman having mentally retarded child. See what happened when they went to temple when Jesus was only 12 years of age: “After the festival was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it [but why?]. Thinking he was in their company [impossible for any parents to behave this way], they traveled on for a day. Then they began looking for him [something they should have done before the return journey] among their relatives and friends.” (Luke 2:43, 44)
ok anointed1, I see your point now. It seems provocatively profound and therefore a bit face palmy. edit to add. Silence never 'taught' me anything I don't think.
I don't want to get into one of those 'Atheist vs: Believer' things because they seem to end up in nothing other than bad feelings. Life is far too short for all that. Now that I know here is nothing after this life, I try to be a much more sensitive person.
Have a great day all you people and be good to one another.

I also want to add the following:
People who have been deceived by those who pretended to be God’s friends would prefer to talk about materialism.
However, I have never been deceived by any falsely called friends of God—hence I see a prism as prism, not as colored by the things behind the prism. Materialism cannot satisfy everyone because humans are not satisfied by mere survival. Survival is what animals seek; man is more than animal; man seeks freedom, pleasure,
art, ingenuity, ….. and on and on. Moreover, he has thirsts for justice and unconditional love—which cannot be fulfilled by any amount of material accomplishments. Superficial though, Spinoza called it confused thought. Make a list of all your pleasures. Then, maybe you’ll see even farther than Spinoza saw: pleasure (happiness) is just a signal telling you that you and the species are surviving; pain is signal that tells you to avoid further/future harm which of course is a mechanism that serves a good purpose.
Even death serves a good purpose. Ecclesiasticus 14:12, 13 says “remembering death enables one to perform good acts.” This fact has been discerned by many people such as Steve Jobs (the Father of the Digital Revolution & the cofounder of APPLE) declared: “Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”
Just because you were bitten by a dog on your way, why stop the journey? Try big picture—everything will fall in place.
Thanks for confirming you are here to recruit for the BK cult. Your response was identical to previous members who were asked the same question.
It is a nasty dehumanising family destroying money grabbing abusive cult.
I will not make a comment about any organization until and unless I personally examine them, and I am going to make a first hand examination.
Why are the endless succession of BK apologists we get here so dishonest about their intentions?
Every single one has denied being in the BK until it was forced out of them. I even have PMs admitting as much from one of your local leaders.
