And many Christians agree; they may think that choice – as I’ve described it in my previous post – would violate the sovereignty of God. I agree with these Christians that God is Sovereign, which means he is the supreme authority and has ultimate control over all creation. However this d...

Release time is when the local elementary school lets children, who have their parent's permission, go up to the church for a Bible lesson. I liked release time as a kid, except that it was always during art, or something fun; never during math. The subject they had been covering was creationism vs. evolution. I ...
