true faith

True faith is not to be brought about by overwhelming and intimidating intervention from God...The Lord is a shepherd with a "mild" and "pleasant" voice--not a shouting and scolding sheepherder.  Those who demand a "voiceprint" of the "voice of the Lord" probably would not like His doctrines anyway.  The things of the spirit are to be "sought by faith"; they are not to be seen through slit-eyed skepticism.
