Also, do you suppose you could sell "Gentle Jesus, meek and mild," to the
money changers in the Temple?

What happened to Templeton is a warning for us all today. He went to
Princeton University and was taught to believe in the evolutionary

then God used death, bloodshed, suffering and disease for millions of
years as part of His creative process—and then called this very good.
All through his book, Templeton wrote that there can’t be a God of love
because of all the death and suffering in the world. The teaching of
“millions of years” destroyed Templeton. Don’t compromise, as he did, and
destroy your faith.

"Weakly" message? --- shame on you, John, you couldn't resist could
you? :-)

Regarding the complaint about a God of love causing death and suffering,
Christians who read their Bibles didn't need evolution to introduce us to
that discomfort. The Old Testament is full of it. Anyone finds a God
who presides over calamity to be unconscionable had better refrain from
reading their Bibles. Doesn't mean we have a good answer for it except
to dismissively assert that God is sovereign --- just means anyone who
gets shook up over this "new" challenge from science apparently hasn't
adequately withstood the shaking from within their own faith.
