Why don't Christians trust people claiming to have seen or heard angels or God? You would also have to apply those same things to everyone who ever said they had seen an angel or God. One person does not get greater merit because we simply do not know what happens on the spirit plane or what entities have what abilities, personas etc.
But seriously, I think it's because most of them, and I'm talking about the average person in general, are so damn stupid they can't see the contradiction of their faith and reality.
>Why don't Christians trust people claiming to have seen or heard angels or God
because when someone makes a claim, they have to give signs to verify that claim.
i.e. like the old prophets had to prophecy that an event would happen, then the people would know that he was sent from God.
>the hebrews usually got too impatient and would kill off the prophets though.
>but the prophecy still came true.
>that's the reason that Jesus came, to stop all the BS by the hebrews and jews by extention.
That's assuming the only beings that can foretell the future is God. We do not know that, we could not know that. However if that's the way most Christians think why don't they listen to everyone who made a right prediction that someone claims came from somewhere supernatural. Wouldn't that also be God too?
Let's assume that God is not the only being that can predict the future correctly. Are you sure this being has good intentions? Are you sure it's not pretending to be a God or Angel? Are you sure at all of the origins of some message that you personally can not see nor feel nor hear? Are these messages intended for the greater good or were they complete fabrications for the personal gain and fame of the person who said them?
tl;dr there are too many variables and unknowns to confirm the validity of any supposed "holy book".
