  • Hi Mike, I enjoy your site and have learned a lot. My former pastor said to me one day "If God blessed us only when we deserved it, we would never get blessed." Is there any truth to that?

  • Dear Mike, I hope you and yours and doing well. I have always been puzzled by the account of David and Bathsheba. Here we have a man having intercourse with a married woman, and the law clearly stating that under such circumstances both the man and the woman were to be put to death. Deu 22:22 If a m...
