Louise Teaching on Atonement, Part 2, Monday July 26, 2002

Louis teaching on the Atonement, Part 2 of two parts. Started with an allegory of planting the seed and the ground you plant it on. What kind of ground are you?
Then a story of a Sunday School lesson years ago about a 5 year old who died. How to explain this? The general consensus–all wrong–was it was God’s will to teach us all a lesson, or lessons. Louise challenged this interpretation which usually was invoked with the phrase, “well, if it be God’s will to take this child, then so be it.”
That kind of thinking will kill your faith and belief in the infinite goodness of God. God has never used illness or death to teach us anything.”
