Things I’ve Learned About God

I hear some weird stuff about God and it has shown me how important it is to really learn all you can about the real Creator. It’s not all that hard to get to know Him, but it does take some discipline and time and most of all communication with Him. We all have preconceived ideas about Him. Our society is filled with all sorts of twisted and way-out notions about who He is and what He is like. As human beings, we are limited in our scope of all that surrounds us.

I can’t think of a better person to champion an expose’ on “science” and its fanciful creation story. In the last few minutes of his film, “Expelled” he gives Richard Dawkins one last chance to reconsider his hardline against God. Dawkins then blurts out something about alien civilizations planting life here on earth. But, he suddenly catches himself and tells Ben that those who did the planting had evolved on whatever planet they had come from. Dawkins is so pathetic and Ben looks at him with…
