    I dont think you need to answer outloud (or in a response) if you dont want to. I think this is just a question we need to ask ourselves and answer honestly. If God asked you to do something, could/would you do it? I think it's something to think about.

    I'd have to ask him a few questions first, establish his bona fides, especially if he asks in a disembodied voice, but yes, He could trust me. If I'm convinced.

    Depends on what it was. If god told me to kill my firstborn son or commit genocide (al the OT) I'd tell him to go fuck himself because he's a sick piece of shit. If he told me 'Hey, don't murder anyone' I'd tell him I wasn't planning on it, but I'd not his position.

    I have read of people that god told to kill their children and such.
    I don't think I would do what he asked me to do.

    I'm guided by my principles, not by what pieces of parchment the church tells me are 'holy'

    My dog asks to go out all the time, and I take him for a walk.
    Wait did my dyslexia just cause a faux pas?
