I thought I would post something about where the letters I respond to come from. Some of them come from actual people asking actual questions. I change the names and some of the particulars so that no one will know the actual person being responded to. I post them because I think the questions are common to a number of people. I also think the answers will be helpful.
Other times, including my last three posts called “Rising Above,” were totally made up by me. I had no one in mind when I wrote them. On the other hand, the situations are so common that anyone might read them and think, “he’s writing about me and my situation.” If you think that, simply read the answers, study the Bible to see if I’m right, and do what God tells you to do.
