Is God more interested in drawing one into a deep relationship with Him or merely throwing out Q&A answers to satisfy intellectual curiosity?

Without suffering and a crisis in their lives some dear people would never think deeply about spiritual issues. People tend to ask more ‘why’ questions when their world is rocked, when their comfort zone is  shaken or even removed. “God … Continue reading

Atheistic evolutionists have opinions but no supportable basis for judging good and evil. Atheist Richard Dawkins sums up their position; “we are just dancing with our DNA.” If we are just purposeless molecules bouncing around we are just accidents of chance.

They are inconsistent, blinded. – Stealing From God, Frank Turek, (1 Cor 2.14; Rom 1.18-20)
