This is the story we were discussing.
Andrew, an atheist coworker asked me how “we” (me and the other Christian co-workers) would explain how “something like this could happen.”
“Well,” I said, “Thousands of years ago a man named Adam rebelled against God’s commandment and every person ever since then has been full of wickedness.”
“Basically,” he said, joking, “You’re saying I shouldn’t have asked.”
Lord, have mercy on Gail Coontz and on those involved in this awful situation. Pour out your grace and make your name great through this. Show Andrew who you are. May he see the reality of sin and the need for a savior.
