I know, it's a standard question. But for any theists out there that claim to communicate with God, do any of you ask him how he came to be? Where did he/she/it come from? Does God ever ask itself how it came to be? Why me? How did I get to be God? Do I have the option to relinquish this role, or am I stuck with this for eternity? What does God say to you? Does God say clearly that he's the Bible-God? Do you know for sure God is a he? It seems to me that if you're truly communicating with God, these would be some basic questions to ask. AND, if billions of others were truly communicating with God as well, the answers would all be the same as yours. So why don't we have a standard answer for how he came to be, or where he came from, or if he's grateful for being God for eternity, or if he's a man, and which textual version of God he is?
I suspect the answer to these questions would be "some things must remain a mystery", or something to that effect. But I'm curious to see if there are any answers. And to those of you like me (former believers) - when you TRULY were convinced - and you'd pray to God - did you ever ask any of these questions while you prayed? I admit I never did - and I admit I never felt like a God was talking to me. I just held my head down like everyone else in a group prayer.
