That's a popular misconception, but Christianity is not based of Biblical Portrayal. Very little in the Bible is meant to be taken literally. Christianity as Nice Cup points out, is about your personal relationship with God. It's about your interpretation of the accounts presented in the scripture. God speaks to each and everyone of us each and everyday and is heard loud and clear for those who take the time to listen.
Well it hasn't spoken to me ever. I wanted to hear when I was a child and I never did!
