God’s Pronouns “Thus shalt thou say to the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.” –Exodus 3:14   I have a frenemy whom I love for many reasons.

All his thoughts are: ‘There is no God.’”- Psalms 10: 4*It’s easy to understand why the absence of a God or gods is an alluring concept to many people. For, a non-existent god is the easy answer to why scores upon scores of prayers appear to go unanswered. Then there’s the fact that terrible things happen to “good” and “evil” people alike. But the point seems particularly rational as it... Read more
