Here is something that has often come up with me and perhaps you've experienced this situation as well. Friends or acquaintances will tell me they "prayed" about this or that and that "they got an answer". They want me to accept the answer THEY got from "god".
The problem with this is, many times, what they are praying about directly affects me, at work or elsewhere, and I may not believe that their prayer was answered. It seems they use this ploy to get their own way in many instances and present it as though it was received "directly from god". And, it's difficult to disaggree because of the way the information is presented. Has this ever happened to you?
