In Romans 7, Paul talks about his struggle: when he wants to be good, he does just the opposite. Whenever I read this passage, I think that if Paul can’t live the kind of godly life he desires, how in the world can I? What he really wants to do he cannot, and what he hates doing, he does anyway. This doesn’t inspire me! What am I supposed...

My eight–year–old grandson asked me why God punished the whole world because of what Adam and Eve did. How shall I answer him? Question and Answer First, admit that it is a hard question.
