It wasn’t that she didn’t give to those in need... her problem was that she was giving so much away, that she barely had enough left for ...read more

    Solomon is troubled by the unfairness of life. But he was the king - why didn't he just legislate away injustice and punish all the wrong-doers and give away some his vast wealth to feed the poor? Why wouldn't that work?

    OPEN: Awhile back there was an article that appeared in a Kentucky newspaper which read: "I used to think I was poor. Then they told me I wasn't poor, I was needy. Then they told me it was self-defeating to think of myself as needy, that I was culturally deprived. Then they told me ...read more

The playwright MacLeish has his character “J.B.” scream out something we are all afraid to say, but it might be true: “If God is God, He is not good; if God is good, He is not God.” What an awesome thing to think, let alone speak! “If God is God, He is not ...read more
