You would think a real, all-powerful, all-knowing God would have enough of this foolishness to take five minutes out of His busy schedule and pop onto some mountain and speak for himself instead of going through unreliable middlemen with their own flaws and agendas.

""Your god advocated the sacrifice of a man's son upon an alter, allowed the death of Able, committed genocide to clense the world, advocated slavery, domination of women, and a host of politically incorrect attrocities in the old testiment which were subsequently mollified in the new""
No, I do not think that God has to speak for Himself, After you read the Bible with the desire to know the true Living God, What more can God say that he has'nt already said??
YOU want more words when you have not even given heed to the ones he already wrote??????????????????????????
If God was to make an "appearance" we would all be slaves to this Image. "Well there's no room for any opinion, He was right there, didn't you see?" Love for God by us is through faith, forgiveness and a filling by the Holy Spirit. Free will would be destroyed, love would turn to mechanical obedience to the Image that appeared. It's my opinion that God made us to not be alone and unloved, but automatons cannot give true love and worship. Tried that with making all those angels (a few didn't turn out so well)
