For some claims to hear from above or speak to God can appear to be a betrayal to life. If life is ego driven then that is the game of life we have to play. If life itself is a rebellion against the maker so be it. Claims to have a beeline to another dimension won't give to you a pass. Watch a boy who wants to learn a sport. All he cares about is how to do it in the physical realm. We have to live and fail, even gloriously. If our flaw is that we want to be God then that is what we have to experience fully. We have to participate.
Of course this is one perspective, but I understand it and give it it's due.
