Does God Really Answer Prayers?

I think this is a question many of us are asking at this moment in time, especially with the pandemic that has swept the world. By us, I mean humanity, Believers and unbelievers, because even Believers wonder why it seems their prayers are going unanswered. Really, does this […]

The More I Think About Hell…

Lately, the more I think about hell, the more I question the idea of God. It’s a strange thing for a Christian to say, especially one who once held strongly and taught much about hell previously. But the truth is, I haven’t felt much like a Christian, in […]

All Suffering Is Borne From Craving
