16 October: Voice of God
12 December 2007
Dr Simon Dein – UCL Medicine
Prayer and verbally answered prayer would seem to offer powerful evidence in relation to the question of human agency. Forty members of an English Pentecostal church completed a questionnaire on prayer, twenty-five of whom reported an answering voice from God; fifteen of them hearing Him aloud. The latter groups were interviewed and characteristics of phenomenology and context elicited. The voice of God cannot be held to be ipso facto pathological and many reported its utility in situations of doubt or difficulty.
