Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Good News and Bad News

Good news for atheists. Australia has a new prime minister, and she doesn’t believe in the existence of God. Finally atheists can say that not all politicians need to pay lip-service to God to bring in votes. That's how it's been done from Hitler to Clinton to Bush to Obama.

There's something particularly nauseating about hearing a political candidate mouth off a well-placed "God bless you," and seeing him clutch a shrink-wrapped Bible as he goes in to church. But that all changed with this new PM.

The bad news is that Christopher Hitchens has cancer, and it's a particularly nasty form--cancer of the esophagus. I've been thinking about him a lot since I heard. So if you are a Christian, you may like to remember him in prayer, and if you are an atheist, perhaps you could have a moment's silence for him. If anyone knows his address, I wonder if you could send it to me. Maybe we can at least let him know that we are thinking of him.
