Why do so many theists seem to have such a low opinion of their God's communication skills?

They keep suggesting that religious buildings catching fire is a message, as though God is some kind of dyslexic pyromaniac.

Update:

I say, "so many", but admittedly it is quite a small minority.

    It's not hard to find fault with others to try to make ourselves feel better, but it doesn't really work. It's a dysfunction of the ego.

    What a silly post and one that ridicules all Christians?! Will you never realise you do SATAN's work because you are so unchristian you cannot see that the problem is not anything to do with atheists, God, Jesus, the bible, or even Christianity and all to do with the intolerance, hatred, bigotry, homophobia and persecution posted by BAD Christians towards others!

    ALL the other religions and atheists live in peace and are ONLY attacked by BAD Christians which causes all GOOD Christians to despair at the damage they do!

    The self-destruction of Christianity is underway and the only thing that can stop it is to abandon the terrible human emotions, seek to rediscover the idea of a loving god and act like it!

    BAD Christians not only drive people further away from God but are the reason so many DECENT people are becoming ANTI THEISTS!

    Pew News reports Christianity is shrinking with a corresponding rise in atheism!

    Five times as many Americans in 2014 said they never prayed compared to those asked the same question in the 1980s

    "Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them; otherwise you have no reward with your Father who is in heaven. -Mat 6:1

    Treat a man as he appears to be, and you make him worse. But treat a man as if he were what he potentially could be, and you make him what he should be. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    Christianity is not about hating others but about worshipping the LOVING GOD!!!!!!!

    "They keep suggesting that religious buildings catching fire is a message" though I understand the symbolic reach of this, you d have to go with "no"

    They suggest?

    Quite the generalization?

    Perhaps a few fundies say that. Not most theists.

    I can't speak for the small minority you are mentioning. IF it was directly from God however, it wouldn't make him a God with dyslexic pyromania and low communication skills.

    I can't say if it was or wasn't for sure. I mean, why would I say something definitive about it?

    Well, if they think the BuyBull is his work - how can you blame them

    for thinking he is an EPIC FAIL in communication?

    Over two millennia have gone by and over 75% of the people on earth

    STILL REJECT that cult book for the nonsense that it is. And for those who

    hold onto it, they all disagree on what it says - and disagree so badly, they

    have fractioned-off into thousands of different denominations to worship separately

    (which, by the way, is TOTALLY against what that book teaches about togetherness).

    For a universe-creating god, he would FAIL at physics, astronomy, human biology,

    zoology, and for asserting absurd things like "my earth is shaped like a pancake!"

    It's obvious that God has bad communication skills and that's why he chooses goat herders to convey his message because goat herders are the bomb at communication
