My friends consider me naïve because I don’t concentrate on the negatives in life. The truth is, there are a lot of negatives. Some of my friends walk through life with the attitude, “Woe is me, I am undone.” But I just can’t do that. There are so many beautiful things in this world to cling to, to lift me up. Am I just totally unrealistic?

My sister worships the devil. She’s never been a good judge of character and surrounds herself with evil people. I don’t want my children near these people. We didn’t go to her birthday party because those people were there. She makes me so angry because she has openly rejected God. But I still want her to be saved. I’ve invited her to church,...

I have always been told that God knows the future. If that is the case, how do you explain God’s choice to create us knowing beforehand that Adam and Eve would sin?
