  • No, I would not.
  • It would depend how good their argument was but I'd take some convincing.
  • If they weren't asking for anything in return, I'd give them the benefit of the doubt. But I wouldn't invite them over for dinner.
  • Probably not.
  • I'd need to see them perform a miracle. For example, I would want them to turn some lead into gold. And I'd want them to turn some soda cans into gold, some old pizza boxes into gold, some empty toothpaste tubes into gold, ...
  • 1) May I translate the question in standard english, I first had difficulties to understand it: "If someone told you they spoke to God and they were a messenger or prophet, would you believe them" 2) I would not believe them *because* they were saying that, I would eventually believe them because what they would otherwise say and how they would act would convince me that they were true prophets. 3) They would probably also have some kind of positive aura about them. I already met some people in my life who had this aura with them, it is some form of subtle energy. I am able to feel this when I encounter it.
  • I'd be very dubious. Believing one has a direct line to God, and that God speaks to one is usually a symptom of some mental instability. If it isn't a psychiatric symptom then we've spent decades consigning people to psychiatric hospitals when we should have been listening to them. Out of interest and curiosity I might listen to what the person had to say, but it had better be coherant, interesting, free of hate and believable. Somehow I doubt I'd be listening for long.
  • If what they told me didn't line up with Scripture then I would have to say no, they were not a messenger or prophet of God.
  • Yes, it is possible for someone to speak with God. Now when God speaks back it is not audible. I comes as a thought. We are taught to be lead by the spirit. That is more what these people mean. I think.
  • That would depend entirely upon the message. If he's attempting to convince me of the spiritual hazzards of eating with spoons, the need to embrace Veganism, or that Oblahblahma is the 2nd Coming -- probably not.
  • I believe many claim to speak for God with the intention of profit. Did you mean prophet?
  • I'd perhaps believe that *they believed it*! ;-)
  • (I think you meant "prophet." ) Not a bad question. Biblically, the criteria is established for evaluating whether someone is actually prophesying for God. The Old Testament prophet would be foretelling an event that would have to occur exactly as he described. It's not as simple as predicting that it will rain when there are storm clouds, but the foretold event has to be something beyond what could be humanly known or ascertained. Whatever he spoke had to be precise and specific BECAUSE it testifies that God had actually spoken. If God is the legitimate author of the message, He will ultimately and inevitably bring it to pass. Period. The New Testament prophecy is not as much about foretelling (although it can occur as God wills) as it is about proclaiming what is already written in Scripture with an application of the Biblical truth. Today's prophets are not predicting new Biblical truth, but rather, showing how a statement or a section in what was written in the Bible applies to a specific circumstance. God is "speaking" in the sense that He demonstrates His timeless wisdom by showing an application of what was written millenia ago to address a situation that may not have existed back then. The prophet today will be given divine insight for particular situations as God chooses to "speak." The prophet is by no means a fortuneteller. In summary, the proof that someone is speaking for God is that what they said either will come to pass or will reveal God's timeless wisdom and insight into a specific situation. In either case, when God speaks, it will be self-evident in retrospect.
  • I would try to suppress my laughter and say "Groovy baby!" and walk away. Anybody who tells you he speaks to or for god is full of crap or insane in my opinion, and I'm uncomfortable when I'm around crazy people.
  • no i wouldnt unless they had some proof of it that i could visually see, i do believe in god and i go to church, but unless they have the visual proof i wouldnt believe them if they said that they spoke with god. you can pray to him but i dont think they could talk to him.
  • Not a chance.
  • probably not, but I'd like to.
  • I've worked with the mentally ill and in prisons. There are quite a number of actual "Gods" in both. If they came to my door, I don't care who they are, they are not invited. If they are raving on the street, I don't like the noise. And if someone happened to know something special for me, I might listen very intently. +4
  • No, I would not believe that person, "God had already chose His prophets" back in the Old Testament. The New Testament in the Holy Bible said,..there would be false prophets and false christs. Matthew 24:11 Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. Matthew 24:24 For there will rise up false christs and false prophets, displaying wonderful signs and prodigies, so as to deceive, were it possible, even God's own people.
  • Belive them no i would leave them..:)
  • I would assume they were high on something
  • No... If a god was trying to communicate with its people why would it do it through just the one person? That’s got to be the most stupid and unrealistically optimistic method possible. I find it hard to believe a god would be that dumb.
  • No, never in this day and age.
  • ill tell u what, i never believed those people who said stuff like that, but i flat lined and when i came back to life and 2 weeks later when i understood what happened, i had brain damage 4 year ago and mind you, i have not had a dream since this happened. But i met with God and he told me that he is sending me back because it was not my time, and that was it, and he was just a big black silhouete sourround by a bright light. and u can believe that or not, makes no difference to me, i was just answering your question.
  • I do not believe in modern day profits. The time of profits have pasted.
  • Nothing wrong with some profit. Especially in this Global Financial Crisis.
  • People that claim to have spoken to god only look to profit.
  • I wouldn't believe them (I have my own beliefs) but I would certainly listen to what he had to say - would make for an interesting conversation if nothing else
  • I would seek to understand which God, what message, and if if can be verified from the Bible. God will only ever send messages congruent with Himself and His Word. In addition it would be worth praying for whatever they say to you. The gift of prophecy does still exist. So if you know they are Christian, they have the gift of prophecy, that what they say accords with the Bible, then it could be true what they tell you. If this is not the case, then give the issue to God, pray to Him for guidance. He always answered. Every prayer I have given to God, He has answered.
  • no i wouldn't believe they were a profit. unless they had been received as payment at some point. now if they were a prophet...i still wouldn't believe them.
  • Great ?? I would listen to them, then after they have taken their meds I will carry on listening to them, then if they still say they are a profit, I would have to tell this person their med are not working.
  • I´d say he´s coocoo and he´s to stay the hell away from drugs and alcohol cuz he clearly had to much
  • not without visible proof, no I wouldn't believe them.
  • Most likely not.
  • Everyone is a prophet of God.
  • If it were the American God, and he said he was a profit, I might well believe him. Otherwise, I'd expect a prophet.
  • That would be kinda like the boy who cried wolf wouldn't it? Too many loonies have already tried it without being able to ante up when I came time to put up or shut up.
  • i might since people talk to god all the time
