The following article and statements made by a worldly non-believer on American television should not really surprise anyone.
Not in our current times.
The great irony of this and similar statements, articles in our time is that those claiming to hear the voice of God or Christ is an indication of mental illness the fact is to not recognize the voice of God or Christ is evidence of a dire spiritual illness.
And what we have labeled as mental illness in the latter 20th and early 21st century is in truth spiritual illness.
America has been suffering for a long, long time of spiritual illness. Spiritual maladies.
God and Christ can and will openly speak to anyone who approaches Their Word, the Holy Bible even with faith the size of a mustard seed grain. If they will only open God’s word and begin reading with in humility and sincerity seeking answers rather than looking for fallacies — because no fallacies exist in the inerrant living word of God.
Atheists, agnostics (same thing, really, just different spelling and agnostics attempt to soften their lack of faith, that’s all) and any non-believer, any person following a worldly belief system created of man and not of God, such as Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and any of the almost countless ‘isms’ numbering in the thousands in our time can hear the voice of God, the voice of Jesus.
Not literally in an audible sense as sound entering the ear, although all things are possible with God — but they can literally hear the voice of God and Jesus Christ the Lord if they would turn to the Holy Bible, open it, open their hearts and read what God and Christ have to say to anyone and everyone who would seek, knock and ask for an answer.
I know during the middle of a cold winter’s night about 9 years ago I heard Christ’s voice in my heart, in my mind and I finally answered Him. Did I literally hear a voice as if my wife, or a friend had said something to me? No, of course not. But I did hear a voice within me. Telling me to go to the shelf and remove a Holy Bible that had not been removed from the shelf or opened in decades.
And when I went into my office in the middle of that night and prayed silently, alone to God to show me, lead me, forgive me, provide what I needed that night God not only heard me — but He answered.
All anyone needs to do is seek the Lord, seek the answers. Knock with a sincere heart. And ask for the answer. And it will be given to you.
To not do so is the proof of true mental and thus spiritual illness.
We think ourselves too intelligent, too modern too educated. We immerse ourselves in things such as psychology and worldly ways and instruction and as we do so? We make less time, less faith in God’s word, God’s ways.
I don’t know about you, but I would rather sit in a quiet room alone with an open Bible listening to God and Christ and the Holy Spirit than anyone talking on television. Especially a non-believer who imagines herself to be witty, funny and entertaining as she corrupts and walks in utter darkness imagining herself wise and educated.

Joy Behar of ‘The View’ accuses Pence of having a mental illness for his faith in Jesus, his response says it all
Where is the line between faith and delusion? The definition of exactly what is considered a mental illness is based on subjective criteria. Various Psychologists claim that religious behavior is a symptom of mental illness.
For instance, in 2006, biologist Richard Dawkins published his book The God Delusion, in which he characterizes belief in God as delusional. Dawkins cites the definition of a delusion as “a persistent false belief held in the face of strong contradictory evidence, especially as a symptom of a psychiatric disorder.”
Ms. Behar from “The View”, who has the mainstream platform to spread this lie far and wide, agrees.
The ladies of the talk show “The View” debated this week whether or not the Vice President has a mental illness after former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman opined on his Christian faith. Omarosa claimed that “Jesus tells Mr. Pence to say things.”
“It’s one thing to talk to Jesus,” Ms. Behar, an agnostic, said during Tuesday’s show. “It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness if I’m not correct. That’s hearing voices.”
The comedian shifted her position after co-host Meghan McCain said Jesus speaks to her “every morning.”
In defense, Mr. Pence stated, “It is just simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.”
He also said that her dig at him showed just how “out of touch” she is with the rest of America and that her comments reflect the opinion of those in the deluded mainstream media.
As a Christian, hearing the voice of Jesus is a powerful testimony of the faith. John 10:27 says, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”
Reader, my question for you: Was there ever a time where someone used the same psychological tactics that Ms. Behar used on Pence on you? If so, what was your response?
