I couldn't help but notice this one review of the book where the author and another commented that time will tell whether Akiane is "from God." What does that mean? I mean if you believe in God as creator, isn't that where everyone is from? I imagine one that does not wouldn't pose such a question.

Of course there is no question that Akiane is especially gifted. I just don't see a need to make a judgement about it categorically, like she is a prophet or whatever - just let her work speak for itself. I just hope people are really listening, rather than just count her as a plus for the Christian camp or something.

edited to add:

Actually, how naive of me - I guess that question might also imply one wonders if God exists or is the reason for her talent, as she says.

I can't speak for what the person meant because I can't read their mind nor do I know their personal beliefs, but in the Catholic religion, when someone claims visions and/or prophecies, the church always takes a "wait and see" attitude. In the New Testament, there is something regarding spirits along the lines of " test everything and hold on to what is true". The implication being that "spiritual things" can also come from Satan, "the great deceiver", in order to confuse and disrupt. I think what confused you is that for some reason the church uses the expression"of God" when it really means "from God". Don't know if I helped, or just muddied the waters more for you.
