Which the Book even goes into detail on, that many will do that. So if you are dealing with someone who has made the Book into the Word, and confidently assures you that they have found an absolute truth in It, when you ask for any Scripture that demonstrates this absolute truth, and get no answer, then you have all the answer that you need, seems to me. Iow if the Book is your God, and you can be stumped by the Book, then you are going to be shown to be a hypocrite; but this requires knowledge of the Book, it seems to me.
Why one would want to debate with the dead is maybe a more cogent question, but i understand that you kind of get drawn into these. Men prefer the Book because men desire to know things, and have proof; i don't think you can blame men for that. You maybe forget what a powerful mooring that the illusion provided for your consciousness, even if it was imaginary. I don't know about you, mjr, but it was a process of extreme cognitive dissonance to meet Him in the air, and let all of that go. Even if we are just talking about becoming like a little child again, with, i agree, no need of the Book on a personal level, once you find Word. But if you still want to converse with other seekers, and discuss spiritual truths, you aren't going to violate the Book anyway, right. At least not in the original.
