“Don’t blame God for world’s heartaches”
Rev. Jeff Barnes of Newsong Fellowship Church has a piece in his local paper with the same title and it’s worth some comments from this peanut gallery. The question that inevitably surfaces is, “Why doesn’t God keep all these bad … Continue reading

New bodies await us in heaven? How could Billy Graham know that?
Here’s the question this time around: I’m confused, because on Easter our pastor said that not only will our souls go to be with God, but we’ll also be given new bodies in heaven. Is this in the Bible? Why … Continue reading

Billy Graham and the one-sided view of spirituality

I like this headline: “Caught between God and Gomorrah”

Have you missed Billy Graham? Me neither..
Still, I felt compelled to see what tripe he replied to lately because I’m craving a desire to mock something. If Jesus rose from the dead (which I gather Christians believe happened), then where is he now? Could he be … Continue reading

Natural disasters are the fault of humans? Sinful humans!
To be fair, some disasters would result in lesser devastation if thousands of people weren’t crammed onto islands prone to flooding, but never you mind. Sin is the problem and God is taking it out on the Philippines because we’re … Continue reading
