2. Since God's Voice is so powerful and so strong why do we not hear the Voice?
A. We do hear because we are distant and can not hear the Voice

B. We do not hear because Worries of the world have choked out the word

of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful
C. We do not hear God's Voice because we do not want to, like those that stoned Stephen they did not want to hear the Truth

the city and began to stone him
