Can God lie? Does God lie? And did science make God honest? And in making God honest, did science take away God’s power to speak?

Once upon a time, the baseline for American religious life was white and Protestant. Today things are more complex.
In the past few weeks, I’ve met with people who, when they try to take a step toward mercy and help, find their way blocked. In some cases, the church itself, and me personally, have been experienced as barriers to that mercy and help. Sometimes, particular communities and individuals are very powerful conduits of the merciful embrace and gracious help of Jesus. But at other times, we find ourselves blocking the way between the powerful work of Jesus and the profound needs of people.
