I’m reading the Bible cover-to-cover (the copy I have is the King James) and compiling a list of every time God speaks or appears directly to people, or otherwise directly intervenes in worldly affairs.
Why, you may ask?
In order to document how God does not show up in real life in the same way the Bible claims He does, as Deacon Duncan stated so eloquently.
There may in fact be a real-world explanation of the difference – indeed, that’s pretty much what Christian apologetics is about, coming up with explanations and rationalizations for the differences between the world we inhabit and what Christians have claimed about the universe. But those explanations are not found in the Bible. Apologetics comes from men’s thoughts and feelings and studying what other people have thought and felt and studied.
