This is really good news! will pass it on & then clear my book shelves for the end of May.
Lesson 4, “Who is God”, went well. The “crowd” was a little subeudd during discussion, but there was good fellowship all around. I trust we are building a firm foundation.
I agree on the scale, but the question is still to know if haivng one death that is unfair can be compared to a death that is fair. Having your child killed by an assault weapon at school, because of corporate profit like you say, would be unfair. Having your child killed by a mistake from a bus driver is more fair, because it is a mistake and that we need busses to bring children to become surgeons, in order to save other lifes. This is the debate, not only the numbers.
