2. What role does the Shuman heart play in this war between flesh and spirit, and;
3. What role did the body play in communicating sanctifying (small “s”) grace from pre–fallen Adam to fallen Eve?

10/16 - Evil Exists! Therefore, God Does Not Exist = Very Bad Logic!!
The title of this blog points to an argument very often used by atheists and agnostics to try and prove that a good God does not exist.
Atheists like to set up a straw-god, then proceed to knock it down. Read this article to know why their straw-god fails in this case. It is their complete ignorance of the TRUE God that allows them to make these ridiculous claims.
