This sound uncomfortably like God is holding blessings for ransom. It’s like a dog’s owner who teaches the dog not to eat until […]

The need to believe

November 2007

Faith: A Product of Temporal and Geographical Happenstance? Have you ever considered that a person s religious beliefs are a product of temporal and geographical circumstance?
