The Sutherland Springs shootings have left a long, deep scrape across the heart of America. Regardless of our spiritual beliefs or lack of them, everyone was deeply and emotionally stunned that such an atrocity could happen within a house of worship on a peaceful Sunday morning.

Satan’s big lie is to tell us that God loves us when we are good. The flip side would then have to be that God doesn’t love us when we are bad. God’s love is thus conditional based upon our performance. When bad things happen to us we therefore believe that we have somehow been […]
