    It’s been a week of tragedy, hasn’t it. Not on the scale of September 11, of course, but still - a tragedy. No one ever thought that the Columbia would crash. Particularly no one ever thought that it would crash on re-entry... But something did, and so today we are mourning the death more

    based on 12 ratings

    This message deals with the likely possibility of people choosing to believe both the Bible and The Da Vinci Code. It addresses the issues of absolute truth and syncretism.
