Complete Failure

I am a complete failure as a Super-Christian. (It took me long enough!) When I first began to delve into spiritual truth (the bible) and a personal relationship with Jesus, and my Father God—I wanted it all.

A God Past Finding Out

Why would God deliberately send a famine? To punish the guilty? But, what about the innocent? Is that a God of Justice or a God past finding out?
