    In Order To Have A Sliver Of Understanding

    as to why evil exists or why bad things happen to good people, we " have to know both sides of Jesus" according to author and theologian, Sandra Glahn. Makes perfect sense to me.

    Are you saying you should except something

    without proof? If you believe something without any good reason, then why do you believe it. Anything that is claimed must be proved. Especially such an extraordinary claim as the one that and invisible man lives in he sky. Is that so hard to understand?
