Why God insists to use the very undependable messenger/prophet way to communicate?

He never played the broken telephone game?

Update:

@Anon: History proved that every attempt failed. Obviously none of his candidates were reliable enough.

    God communicates to us this way because the reality of what and who he is is love, relational love. It can be no other way. He doesn't do his work TO us, he does his work THROUGH us.

    Good question. They're rare on here anymore.

      Norine, quit your whining already and forget your jealousy. Yesmar gave a solid argument with the concept of involving all of us for transmitting his message instead of just telling us.

    God --> prophet --> us.

    Sometimes, with answers to prayer, it's God --> us. What broken telephone? Only one step or at the most two.

    "Undependable" is a "natural man's" (I Cor 2:14)

    PERCEPTION!

    "My sheep hears My voice" (John 10:27)!

    10 "And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

    11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given" (Matthew 13:10-11).

      You call GOD "A LIAR" by believing that which is "BLASPHEMY" (Matt 12:31-32) and you're THE DEVIL for encouraging Yesmar in ERRONEOUS BELIEF (Jeremiah 23:1)!

    From Adam , the first prophet of GOD, right down to Prophet Mahammad, HIS last Prophet (May GOD be pleased with them all) up till now , lasted around 12,000 years . The true massage of GOD, being revealed through all HIS Prophets ,totaling to124,000 , still preaching the same truth of GOD that is. " There is no other god except Allah" and this absolute truth would remain with human being of the last generation till the last hour comes. This is the reason why GOD send all HIS Prophets and all HIS Messengers, who were all infallible to communicate with mankind, in all generations , as we are now witnesses , through all HIS Holy Books, as Al Quran being HIS last Holy Book.

      HE "fathered" me when I became one of "the children of God" because "His Spirit bears witness with my spirit that I AM A CHILD OF GOD" (Rm 8:16)!

    The way you say, 'undependable' you are very mistaken and are underestimating God's messengers and whom God chose to be His messengers. And Khaled made it very clear on why God sent human messengers to people.

      @Gourry, you're the one that's naive and you're the moron if you actually believe people worship their own messenger. What dimwit you are!

    No.

    God does not play the broken telephone game. He makes his messages clear.

    The broken telephone game is just a game and has no bearing on real life. Of course a message is going to be garbled if it isn't heard clearly. Teachers do not try to hide there messages from people who are in earshot.

    Oral traditions actually are often reliable.
