We believe that if God exists (of course I believe He does) He is more than capable of speaking to you. Yes, in 2017 in this modern technological world.
Many biblical theologians would say we are crazy for believing this. I would challenge them directly from the bible. Many many stories from the old testament start with “And God Said” speaking to Adam or Noah or Abraham or the prophets, Paul in the new testament etc.
Now the bible says that we are created in God’s image, and I do believe we are no less a human being than Adam, Noah, Abraham, Paul, John(from Revelation fame). So if these folks could hear God speak then so can I or you or anybody.
The purpose of God creating Adam and mankind was to have a friendly relationship, which includes talking. Last time I checked talking in a conversation was two way. I can think of nothing more stupid than having a conversation with a book(bible). Is the book important(Yes), is that who I want to talk to as a supernatural being (No)
Is it easy to talk to God?
Yes, but, without Jesus dying on the cross to erase all sin we come, as a human being to God, full of sin. And God Hates Sin. So we are stuck and basically cut off from having an in depth conversation with God. We are blocked.
And this is the supernatural part of Christianity that you have to get over. And it is also the most contentious part of Christianity. It covers and answers the issue of the purpose of life and the issue of life after death.
Jesus said in the bible (John 3:16)
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
I would suggest you read John 3:12-19
I don’t want to get preachy here, this is what I believe and Christians all over the world.
Which comes back to the issue of talking and hearing God. Once the sin issue is absolved, you can then approach God as if you had No SIN (Because God sees you through, if you will, the filter of Jesus). Without Jesus, God Sees the Sin. With Jesus He sees you as clean. It is very individual, as hearing God talk is very personal.
