Yeah, but that's been a while. Remember the "Telephone" game you used to play as a kid? The one where each repetition gets further and further from the truth?
In the past if Abraham said "God told me to sacrifice my son" it would be seen as a test. If someone says that now, call the police!
Yeah, you make a good point Dave.
Magicman, I have to disagree with you. A lot of spectators think we perform magic but they don't associate magic with"mystical" powers or "devil worship." He believes that a deity actually talked to him, which in it's self is scary, and then accuses us of bring about "the end times." For over 2000 years we have had some people believe that they were in "the end times" and it hasn't happened yet.
Didn't Mohamed speak to Allah?
And Abraham too?
Or Moses also?
If I'm not mistaken, The angel Gabriel spoke to Muhammad, not God (Allah) directly.
As for Abraham, I don't remember.
As for Moses, yes, God spoke to Moses.
(I don't believe any of this. I'm just going by what I remember reading, about the beliefs).
