Preachers tell us all the time that we need to listen to God. Most of the time I can't hear God for all the commotion generated by these same preachers.
If God has a message for me I am totally ready. Speak to me directly. Forget about these intermediaries. They just confuse and repel me with their words and attitudes.
I am not resistant to wisdom. I recognize I need guidance. I just want to receive my wisdom right from the source of all wisdom without any filtering by men and their religious institutions. Is that possible? God is not mute, but the practice of listening to Him has been lost amidst the noise of religion.
