The problem of pain, and why it happens, have often been difficult for many people. How could a loving God allow so much pain? This is a very clear and concise lecture on why this is an incredibly inconsistent argument. A very worth while watch, even if you don’t think this is a real issue.
When my wife told her mother that I was a Seventh-Day Adventist, she said “they the ones that don’t do blood transfusions! That is very dangerous”, or something to that effect. Apparently she was not alone in this view, as it is one of the most common misrepresentations of Adventist belief (we have no objection to blood transfusions!).

In the January 11, 2010 issue of Publisher’s Weekly (PW) on p. 13, Kate claims, “The idea for the book came from a line I read in Genesis about a group of angels who were effectively kicked out of heaven because they lusted after mortal women. I became curious about what the experience might be of a teenage mortal who suddenly became the object of an angel’s affection.”
