The Main Line Calls, Why Don’t They Answer?

There is no doubt that Evangelical Christianity in this country is in an uproar. Sex abuse scandals, Jesus and John Wayne, you name it: things are a mess.

Wonder Where Evil Comes From? Try the Mirror

Giles Fraser says something that all too often gets overlooked: But this much is obviously true: evil and suffering have outlived the loss of faith. Once we had God to blame.
