Is God Angry With Us?

“Is God Angry With Us?” This is the question that began a comment posted on my blog. It is an important question. It is a question a lot of people may be asking. I think the best way to begin this is by quoting the comment Wanda sent to me because I think it expresses […]

Got Questions?
