  1. “And it’s true that these problems concern “religious” people. But here we come to the really relevant point about this book’s irrelevance. The overwhelming majority of people who have lived and who live now are “religious” in some way. Add to that the obvious fact (pointed to so nicely in the early chapters of Genesis) that, given enough time, human beings will screw up everything. “Religion” isn’t the problem. This book could have just as easily been titled People Are Stupid. Hitchens knows this, and he has the decency to acknowledge the mind-bending atrocities committed by atheist governments such as existed in Stalin’s Soviet Union and Pol Pot’s Cambodia. There’s a reason why people need salvation.”

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes.
