When the old prophets claimed they could hear the words of Gods, like a way of a person communicating with a higher being. But if someone did that today, then the likeness of believing it just because the person says so, is likely no way. So just curious to how reliable the old prophets where, when we compare to what we know today. And how do we know if a prophet is false? What proof can there be of it? I know that in the old testament. Atleast it says so, but what evidence is there for it to be a false prophet, can it also not be something to do with "persuasion". How do we know that the old prophets was literally speaking the words of Gods. Isaiah 44:25 And what i mean by that is for example with Isaiah. Just curious to hear your views on it.
