Sure, God revealed himself to Moses in a burning bush. God revealed himself to Pilate as a suffering servant. God revealed himself to me through his Holy Spirit.
The reason everything DIDN'T get perverted over time is because we still have ALL the ancient stories. Jews believe in the limitations of their text, Muslims added to it, and Christians took it to completion. I suppose that one could argue that since Jews and Muslims do not follow Jesus, that they indeed follow a perverted version.
It is not possible to have more than one God because, again, of the law of noncontradiction.
There is no issue with the survivability of god texts, because they are here. The only question to ask is WHERE TRUTH IS. So we need to evaluate the messenger and the baking of the messenger.
