I'd like to know if anyone has ever challenged believers as to why their god has never bought in to e-mail. Followers are so steeped in their personal relationship with god.  But is only as personal as they can imagine it to be.  Think of the opportunity available to god and his i-followers, who chould receive a personal message from god every day, giving his wisdom tuned to your very specific situation. Given the enormous positive impact that could follow, what keeps god from this trivial exercise?  Why must we, along with the Alaskan airhead Sarah Palin, pretend to get e-mails from the all-mighty?

 

Imagine the desperate father who lost work in the '09 economic collapse and still cannot find it.  How timely, how potent, how loving, would a personal email from god, serve to give hope. 

 

What are the possible (or encountered) rebuttals to this?  "He wants you to get his answer by faith: without seeing."  What is it about being seen that is so required to be unseen?  Christians claim to feel (I.e. detect, see) god work in their lives every day.  So His being seen is forbidden unless is in such a way so as to be indistinguishable from intestinal backwash.
