So, what do you think?

This is interesting.

Anthony Carter says that, “[Reading] is the primary means through which God has chosen to communicate to his people.”

“The fact that the principle revelation of God to his people is the written word should not be lost to us” says Anthony. “It reveals not only that we are intellectual beings, expected to reason and rationally assess logically communicated data, but it also demonstrates the primacy of written communication.”

To Anthony’s post, Dan Edelen says, “No. Not even close.”

“The reason,” says Dan, “that reading CANNOT be the primary means through which God has chosen to communicate to His people is that for most of human history, very few people could read.”

“So what is God’s primary means of communicating with His people?” asks Dan.

“The Holy Spirit.”

So, what do you think? What saith the Scriptures?

To help you think this through, read Anthony Carter’s “Reasons for Reading”. Then, go read Dan Edelen’s “Becoming Spiritually Literate”.

Wyeth,

Thanks for the link to my post at Cerulean Sanctum on how God communicates. Sorry I did not notice your link sooner.

Blessings.
