The Tree in the Garden of Eden

I've often heard of people who wonder why God put the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the garden. Was He just looking for an excuse to kick Adam and Eve out?

The Question of Suffering

Welcome to my new series¹ of "Stumper Questions for Christians that are Actually Easy to Answer". Yep, this is it folks all those questions you've always been to afraid to think about because if you do you might be forced to abandon your faith in Jesus, sort of like how you've abandoned mathematics because you don't know what 20 Log5 equals.

The Screwtape Letters

I finished C.S. Lewis' "The Screwtape Letters" last night, I read it straight through in two sittings and was disappointed when it was over. You should go straight to the library and get it out, or buy if you want, I've got the library's copy, but I'll be keeping my eye out for a copy I can add to my bookcase.
