Reply To: Persuasion


I am choosing to elaborate on Kaydy’s point. The stance that those who wished to talk with Socrates took, indeed, was that of not listening. Another thing that can be seen from this is that they resolved not to hear because they did not want to be persuaded. Relating this to what Kaydy asserted, yes, we do have to seek what God wants, but I think we fail to here from God because of our stubbornness. I would venture to tweak Kaydy’s assertion and say that God does not whisper but yells at us, but we close our ears because deep down we know what God would tell us and we do not want to hear it.
