Number two is a leading question the way I read it.  I would imagine the other two may seem to be leading questions to others.

Recognize differences in people's perspective rather than assuming they conform to yours, and you may be able to better understand their answers.

Of course it is leading, since God only gave us two choices I am trying to make it as obvious as I can.

John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

News Flash:  You Ain't God, so you may want to try to be a little more flexible.

Unless, of course, you're claiming Special Revelation.  If not, the rest of us also know how to read, thank you.

(btw, have you ever heard of anyone choosing to walk away from a lifetime contract?)

Just a reminder...

Anytime someone claims, "God showed me", or something like that, they are claiming direct inspiration, and are putting themselves on a level with Paul, and other Biblical writers.  And as such, their thoughts are on a par with scripture (or so they think, even if they don't admit).

I'd love to witness an argument between two who both believe "God told them"...

Wouldn't that be a hoot?

Just about like witnessing an argument between two people who both claim to have read the bible and studied for themselves.

Sometimes it's a hoot. Sometimes it's just plain nasty.

But it's at least a result of study.

Better than pure emotionalism.

I agree with you in theory. However, in reality, most people who feel that God told them a little secret tend not to bind their new knowledge on others, but rather simply to share it, while people who feel they have studied a thing through are willing to burn others at the stake who have come to different conclusions.
