Evolution and Faith–Progress of Meaning

In the Exodus texts which Matthew’s story of the Temptations alludes to, the people are learning to trust that God will provide their perceived needs.

“Secret ‘Kill List’ Proves a Test of Obama’s Principles and Will.”

Guilty Secret: I like action-adventure – especially like the secret agent variety.
