I really think questions are way better than answers. Questions show hearts. Questions reveal vulnerability.
Here’s a question I got in an email from someone today:
It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore, it is very hard to understand why there is such a mess about having the Ten Commandments on display or “In God We Trust” on our money and having God in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don’t we just tell the other 14% to Sit Down and SHUT UP!!!
Although there is no question mark at the end, I thought this was seeking somekind of a response.
But, in the fashion of the Rabbi, I will respond with other questions:
Does the Bible not teach that 100% of the demons believe in God? If so, why is there such a mess in hell?
Do you think God wants to be in the pledge of allegiance?
Why doesn’t the 14% tell the 86% to ‘sit down and SHUT UP’?
