God Does Not Cause Tornadoes

It is amazing to me how many people believe God is responsible for everything that happens in our world, both good and bad.

Sin is NOT the Issue

There is this idea in the church that sin is what is keeping people away from God when the truth is sin was dealt with a couple thousand years ago. It’s no longer an issue. And yet there is a huge concept within much of Christianity that God is still angry about our sin today.
