What criteria would you use to determine if someone has received the word/a message from God versus they are suffering from a mental disorder?
All ideologies: What criteria would you use to determine if what a person wrote or spoke was divinely inspired, perhaps even verbatim dictated by God versus a psychological illness? Can you apply this criteria to past writers, authors, prophets,etc who have claimed to know the words of God? Would you apply the same criteria across all religions and times?
