Christians How many talking bushes have you met in your life?

There is no reason to expect a burning bush to talk to anyone.

Those types of events ended long ago and God has since then expected us to move by faith.
Ironic... since this world now is way worse than it has ever been - waaaay more is currently expected of the prospective faithful than was back in the day (IMO).
I'm not a hardcore Christian but what I'll say is that the idea of God not existing would be way too convenient.
Life is not about having no rules - even human governments expect so much of us and penalize us for stuff we didn't even do on purpose.

None. But there is only one Almighty God that I have met in my life, who can do whatever his will and purpose required. Without a bush, he said to Isaiah:
9 Remember the former things of long ago,That I am God, and there is no other.I am God, and there is no one like me.10 From the beginning I foretell the outcome,And from long ago the things that have not yet been done.I say, ‘My decision* will stand,And I will do whatever I please.’
The burning bush that the fire did not consume, which Moses saw about 1000 years before that verse was written, was not speaking - bushes do not have vocal chords. It was the voice of an angel who spoke God's words to Moses.
It was God's purpose at that time to free his people from Egyptian slavery, and he accomplished that, also, demonstrating that his words are true

Nowhere in the Bible does it say that any bush 'talked'. Your ignorance is shining through. It says it combusted yet was not consumed by the flames. That got Moses' attention, then when he got close he heard the voice of God instructing him to take off his sandals, as he was standing on holy ground. The Bible speaks elsewhere of flames that do not consume, yet burn, for those who don't get to stand on holy ground.

I have met several bushes that can scratch you enough to make you get away from them. but none of those ever spoke to me. But how many such ridiculous stories are in the bible?
