The Question of Suffering

Why is there evil and hate?  There isn’t.  God created all that is and He saw that it was good.  So He could not have created evil because be definition evil is not good.  So He didn’t create evil so evil doesn’t exist.  It…

Be the Love

Have you ever noticed that people who are very religious aren’t very holy?  Why is it that people espouse many different religions that are based on Love don’t have hearts big enough to love those who do not believe the way that they do?…

Fighting Demons
