Does God speak through all of creation? Or does he only speak through accepted forms of revelation? This is part of the question that I have to answer for my research thesis for my Masters Degree. I came across this video and I thought it was interesting. I would love to here your thoughts on it.
I personally think that God can use anything he wants to reveal truth. I am doing my thesis on Humor as a Prophetic tool. I think God uses humor in the Bible and today to surprise us with truth. Often though we (christians) ignore truth tellers because they are not coming through the accepted channels. Also I think this pastor is on to something when he says that, to truly see God’s truth in all creation we would need to always be in our Bible.
I don’t think we can remove the Bible from the conversation. I think the Bible provides direction and clarity to our search for God. But he’s can use anything else to get our attention. SO it could be an Arcade Fire song, it could be Fight Club, it could be George Carlin talking about the power of words and censorship of words that only have power because censors give them power. All of those are examples that have been aha moments for me.
What do you think? Does God still talk to us? How does God talk to us? Do you think this pastor is Crazy? Do you think I’m crazy?
