Why Would God Need Prophets, Pastors And Evangelism? by Nobody: 4:51am On Dec 28, 2013
Seriously, if God truly exists why does he need all these intermediaries?

Just take a look at a celebrity or a VIP- if such a person wants to give a speech that would reach millions of human beings, the VIP just has to pen a statement or make a video and upload it on the internet. This makes sure that there is no ambiguity or mistranslation on the part of a middleman.

The point is that any sensible person wouldnt need to go through intermediaries to express himself if he or she wants to make herself clear. If Seun wants to tell us about nairaland, he would tell us himself in a comment or blog post.


WHY THEN WOULD GOD NEED INTERMEDIARIES LIKE PROPHETS AND PASTORS? WOULDN'T IT MAKE MORE SENSE FOR GOD TO SEND UNIVERSAL MESSAGES DIRECTLY TO OUR BRAINS?

Think about it. These middlemen have caused more problems than they have solved. The different churches and religious leaders have given us different bibles, different hadiths, different sects and different perspectives on religion. One religion can have contradicting opinions on a simple issue eg tithing vs no tithing! The message of God (if there is one) is now twisted and confusing.

Good observation.
I ask that same question everyday, and i wonder why many people do not ask the same question.
Why , for example , would the creator of the universe choose a sly fox, a fraudster like Benny Hinn, Pat Robertson, Creflo Onye Oshi Dollar, Circus Clown TB Joshua, and a great horde of other criminals and conmen to spread his words?

If god truely existed, religion would not exist at all.
Have you recently or ever seen worshipers of the almighty Gravity preaching about the great power of the force?

Stop deluding yourself , you know God exist . God has principles. , he reveals himself to those who seek him.

There are universal laws. There's darkness and light . Both God and the devil use human agencies to draw men. God won't cheat . So that he may remain just whe he finally put evil away.

My brother, with due respect, you didn't answer the question. The divisions amongst Christians today is enough for anyone to know that there is too much confusion in that religion. Atheists need not do anything but stand by and watch. All one has to do is peruse the threads dealing with tithes, trinity, free-will, role of women, etc and one will come to the conclusion that confusion is the mainstay of such threads.

Lol. Another excuse.

God has his own principles. He does things his own way. Just because there are fakes in the market, you deny the existence of an original.
And as plaetton has said, the lot of you are like people arguing the existence of gravity. Not to be taken seriously.

God has declared that he will come physically again to this earth as a judge. Until then, his followers preach repentance to everyone. Stop giving silly excuses.

[b]Truely, I keeps thinking that every atheist are always full of ignorances.
I don't know whether they still posses a human brain, an insect brain or a fish brain.
Why would a King need a Town carrier to deliver messages to the town people?
Although He has the power & authority over the village. Why didn't He sit in his palace and shout inorder to deliver the informations to the villagers?
Why would the president need governors, ministers, chairman, councilors etc.
@logicboy. Why do u attend lesson/classes or go to school for a teacher to teach u from a textbook? Why can't u buy books and learn by urself without the aide of anyone?
If you die, is that all? For u to see GOD, it might be too late. It's better 4 u to turn a new leaf now. When there is life there is Hope.
I think u need a surgery operation to be carried in ur brain to removes the obstacles causing your ignorances.

The existence of Logicboy's atheism is the handiwork of the Evil one to lure His Soul astray.[/b]

Defanging and declawing irrationality is a great public service, in the same way that you feel an obligation to fight the devil whenever you imagine one.

You have no point. An Ignorant man.
It is better for a donkey to walk through the mouth of a needle than an atheist to understand the meaning of life.
Satan is the founder of atheism. He wants to make sure that people won't obey GOD. He hates GOD. He wants ur soul(logicboy) to be lost forever.
It's better u were not born into this world, than to be without light in ur soul.
I don't blame u for your ignorance, but I blame satan who loves to destroy souls.
It's better you repent when you are still alive, because if you don't, your soul will be lost forever and ever.
An Ignorant fool who has a blind soul.

satan is a failure in my life.

Immediately you die, u will understand. Your soul, lost lost lost for for for ever.

Dude are you for real? If any of these men you mentioned were to be any " omni omni anything" I'm quiet sure things would be done like they are omni omni anything.

To my mind, it is laziness from the pew that makes such “men of God” seem larger than life. If the pew will wake up and realize that in spirituality everyone has equal right to access the realm beyond the physical then, such men will probably be outta business.

There's a veil in between the physical and metaphysical and only those who have done the “needful” to get the pass lord it over the sheep. Everyone qualifies if and only if you can meet requirements.
