  • God Speaks September 5, 2012 Let’s play a brief word association game. What’s your first thought when it comes to the word God? God, is a loaded word. It is hard not to view God as a harsh and just judge. You do wrong and God will punish you. This is often a deep impression in us. What if this ...
