  • I received an email from a reader of mine who doesn’t like “my brand of religion” and who said, “If there is a God, and he is a loving, merciful one, how could he possibly want you [me] as his spokesperson?”
    The reader claims I am selling sin and damnation and says I am depressing others. I would like to address all of these concerns.
    I do not consider myself to have a brand of religion, even though I am Baptist. I consider the Bible to be the inspired word of God and it is all I rely on to write my column.
