Ep. 15 – Does God Still Speak Today?
Healthy relationships involve good communication. It’s no different in our relationship with God. Many Christians have different convictions on whether or not God still speaks directly to people today, and if God does still speak, how does he speak? We are spending an episode on this subject. Let’s seek the truth!
A poll went live recently on The Majesty’s Men’s Twitter page, asking people if God speaks directly to people today beyond what is written in the Bible.
Does God speak directly to people today beyond what is written in the Bible? Comments welcome.

The winning vote (214 voters) was no — God does not speak directly to people today beyond what is written in the Bible. It was a very close race that could have easily went the other way. It was 50/50 basically the length of the poll.
Great comments arose in the poll’s thread. View all the comments here.
The Bible is the sufficient Word of God that shares everything we need to live an obedient, faithful life on earth. At the same time, God is able to speak directly to anyone if he wanted to because God is God and can do whatever he wants. The question is — does he?
If you believe God does still speak directly to people beyond what is written in the Bible, how can you be sure it is the voice of God? If you believe God does not still speak directly to people beyond what is in the Bible, what evidence do you have that supports this belief?
