How does God speak to us?
|RETURN TO QUESTIONS||NEXT QUESTION|
|Norm Geisler and
William E. Nix, evangelical theologians, have said that
God speaks to us through angels, dreams, visions,
miracles, nature, Urim and Thummim, casting lots and by
studying other prophetic writings. He sometimes even
speaks to us in an audible voice. Geisler and Nix add:
Verbal inspiration (word-for-word dictation) is entirely possible for an omnipotent God, but Geisler and Nix are correct in saying that God more frequently allowed scriptural writers to exercise agency in choosing the exact words to use (Geisler and Nix, p. 55-58). This principle is just as true today as it was for writers of the Bible.
