Frank L. Hoffman Interviewed: Why did God stop writing to us after the Bible was written?
Comments by James Hurst - 22 May 2003
Perhaps we shouldn't be too hasty - I understood Frank's post, yet I believe Colin has an important point.
Colin is indeed speaking to the original question. If we take the current Bible, and being entirely "God's Word", and that all of "God's Word" is entirely within the Bible, then it does stand out as an anomaly that it came down as only of Hebrew origin and ended two millennia ago.
There has indeed been other sources of spiritual wisdom, some of greater clarity than that within the Bible, right up to our present times. Even the traditions of the Buddha (I loved your recent post) offer a deeply Christ-like message, at least to me. The distinction seems to be merely that they don't explicitly claim the authority of being "The Word of God".
With respect and appreciation,
