Hiya rj,

Thanks for giving me an extra reason to open my Bible today. I'm putting this over on Faith because sometimes others get distressed with this topic appearing anywhere else.

I hope you keep wondering and reading. How about these?

Matthew 7:13-14

13 Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Second one is more murky....but in Hebrews (many think written by Paul, or at least from a sermon by Paul transcribed by Luke, Barnabas or another follower later on...)...

Hebrews 13:9

9 Do not be carried away with various and strange doctrines.

I swear what you are thinking of has to be in Revelations, too, but I couldn't find it....yet.

But if you are thinking of **false prophets,** that is mentioned so many times in the gospels and in Jeremiah...all over.

If you don't already, try this out if you are searching for something in the Bible. It's a great tool since you can search so many different ways and see different translations, side by side. I think you'll like it:-)

I'm not sure how people talk to God, either. but I wouldn't take most of it literally, although I do think that certainly can happen...God is God after all and there is nothing He can't do. I do believe they sincerely believe they do, and that they do, but not like you and I would talk. They get a super strong thought or overpowering feeling about something that seems to come out of nowhere. They seem to hear a quiet whisper in their mind. They suddenly read a Bible passage in a totally different way. Probably a million other ways. To me, this is all talking to God, or God talking to them. I struggle with it, too. I get these thoughts, ideas, sometimes, too, but I am *never* 100% sure if it's coming from the Holy Spirit (so...God) or my own sneaky mind trying to get me to do what *I* like or want, even if it's not what God wants. It's hard - discernment. I envy those who seem to be more confident. I don't know the answers, but I will never give up.

Take care...

thanks for the response...

my view, some of people who are strong in church, they have opinions that are dominating, if you don't agree with them they say your not from God....I've seen it on TV and random sermons I've attented. Like Joyce Meyer is a good teacher....she is strong in opinion, but she really does have a good way in making confident living, she usally has scripture to back it up, but the only she uses various bible versions, the amplified version, the new king james, all these other ones....see some of these versions are different in what their implying....kinda, I really just read the original text of biblical scripture, and learn how to read latin and greek...

I do notice, that everyone has their own to get to god, I've seen movies and heard from people in AA meeetings that say they found God and are at peace....but when I think of the God of Israel with david, and moses, that's a different kind of belief, when jesus came he urged people to follow him, but there's so many sources I can't explain....millions of philosophy books that are locked away, and put away.

delusions are another thing when people create God, and use that creating of God an apply it to their life....but still, I don't have enough valid source to back that up. I always view God as an actual being, looking for people to follow him, and have the holy spirit guide them.

yea.....don't give up, we both won't give up, if there's error in belief, redo it, I've been devastated in believing things, and then it crumbled to pieces because it didn't happen. But I got over it, and learned that failure is possible.....but there is the light.....

yea thanks::))
