How Can You Tell If It's Really a God Talking to You?

 Real Mount Sinai: The Forgotten Mountain of God – Living Passages

How can you tell if it's really a god talking to you, and not, say, your own subconscious mind?

Here's one useful question to ask.


The Muslim über-prophet Muhammad was well-known for the self-serving nature of his revelations. Whenever a problem would arise in the early 'umma, Muhammad would go up to the mountain and come down again with a divinely-revealed solution.

Guess who Allah always agreed with?

Muhammad's favorite wife 'Aisha once said to him: Isn't it interesting how Allah always backs you in every argument?


How can you tell when it's really a god talking to you?

Ask yourself: Does the god agree with me?

If the answer is Yes, then the answer is probably No.

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.
