There are times when evil is so pervasive and overwhelming that even the most callous and uncaring cry out and demand justice. Think of the chaos and destruction caused by the Russian sponsored war in Ukraine including the shooting down of a civilian airliner; the gruesome deaths resulting from uncounted cases of Ebola in Africa while a few Americans and Europeans get expensive, intensive, and effective treatment; the murder of Christians and other minorities as a despotic fanatical rule is imposed on parts of the Middle East; and the turmoil in Ferguson, Missouri.
Join us this Sunday as we celebrate our fourth anniversary with a special lunch after the worship service. Adult and children’s Sunday school classes will be cancelled.
What’s so bad about sin? I sin. You sin. We all sin. Is sin really so bad, or is it merely normal?
When the news reports something bad, be it a shooting, robbery, violation of the public trust, or the like, usually an expert explains how it was caused by how the person was raised or how it is rooted in an economic, racial, sexual, or other problem of society.
