Question: "Does God still speak to us today?" Answer: The Bible records God speaking audibly to people many times ( Exodus 3:14 ; Joshua 1:1 ; Judges 6:18 ; 1 Samuel 3:11 ; 2 Samuel 2:1 ; Job 40:1 ; Isaiah 7:3 ; Jeremiah 1:7 ; Acts 8:26 ; 9:15 – this is just a small sampling).
I don’t know what’s sadder about this – that your depictions of the conflicts between these groups is so misguided, or that you would, as a Christian, take the position that the peaceful coexistence of religions is somehow a bad idea. To begin with: C is bound by the Koran to honor the religions of the book – at the very least, T and X. Some don’t, but most do; you’re far better off being T or X than atheist in most muslim nations. The conflict between X and C is not a religious conflict; it is a political conflict over the state of Israel. C has no beef with T either, though some C individuals, as well as some muslim states, have a conflict with America (which is in no sense a representative of T) over our unwavering support X when X commits grievous acts against some members of C.
I would imagine from your post that you grew up in home of confessing Christian, but one who did not actually live their lives as followers of Christ.
Call it Bible 2.0: Glo , a "Bible for a digital world," goes on sale today for $90. Function-wise, it's analogous to DVD-based digital encyclopedias. The NIV text is linked with more than 500 360-degree panoramas of holy sites, 7,500 encyclopedia articles, 2,400 photos, 700 pieces of art, and 3.5 hours of HD video. Created by Nelson Saba, a former VP of tech at Citibank, and Phil Chen, whose family owns HTC, Glo is intended to keep the Bible relevant in an age where reading books is becoming almost anachronistic. As the video trailer says, "Instead of just reading the bible, you see it.
The Bible has been called the best-selling book of all time, though the term itself comes from biblia , Greek for a collection of books.
