...and i realize that you probably dont "know" the answer. But what are your thoughts or opinions.
Why doesnt God talk to people now the way He once did in biblical times? Or do you believe he does, but those people either end up in the insane assylam (sp?) or keep their mouths shut?
I swear this is an honest question. Not ment to offend. And as i stated, i expect more thoughts and opinions then versus from the Bible (although if there are some that talks about this feel free to add them).

O.K. part of the difference is that in the Old Testament the Holy Spirit did not dwell in people. He only came upon people at certain times for special reasons. There wasn't this close fellowship between believers, in the Old Testament the Jews, that there now is between born again Christians and God. God doesn't have to appear to me in a burning bush, because He lives inside of me. Does that make sense? Now in the early New Testament church this was a new work of God to bring the gentiles into Christianity. This was something new to the polytheistic world around the nation of Israel. Often when God begins a new work He shows His power in dramatic ways. This shows the people who have never heard of this God His power and the authority of those speaking for God. You see this today in areas where Christianity is just beginning to take some root, such as remote India.
