I (also) Asked Driscoll a Question…

Ok, so there are already hundreds of questions on this site, and among them you should vote for this one.

And for this one, which I asked today.

The issue of God’s audible voice has been something that nags at me whenever I hear Driscoll speak or read his books. He speaks of such experiences, yet does not seem to offer any practical ways for dealing with this issue, such as whether we ought to seek such experiences, etc.

So I asked. And, so you should vote.

Also, you can vote up to ten times per day, so use them all 🙂

    What are you looking for when you say “deal with them”?

    I probably didn’t state that clearly. I mean that I want to know how such experiences should play into our lives. Why do some people not experience such things and others do, etc.

    I see. I didn’t really think it meant “I hear this voice in my head – how do I get rid of it?” 😉

    I remember reading an article by Piper talking about hearing God speak to him in the morning and he walked through his daily routine informing his reader about what God was saying. I kind of got excited because I have never really read/heard anyone whom I take seriously speak as if God has actually spoken to them.

    Then I find out that he was using it as an illustration regarding the importance of knowing scripture and how scripture is God’s way of speaking to us.

    I felt let down =(. I am curious about your question and hope it gets answered. A lot of people who claim to have heard God’s clear voice are a little “eccentric”… but I guess most of those in the OT and NT that did as well could be described in a similar manner.

    The good thing is that the Bible speaks directly to this issue; no need to delve into implication!

    “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.”

    You could maybe paraphrase this as: a word of prophecy (if such things still happen) should be measured against the Bible.
