What is the cost of Spiritual Restoration and how do we go about it?

We Applaud when Buildings and Monuments are Restored, But What's the Price of Faith?

What is the cost of Spiritual Restoration and how do we go about it?

I recently visited Venice and was struck by the contrast of new, old, restored and “work-in-progress”. In part, the erosion of the world around us is quantified by our inability to identify works of art. Philanthropists, councils, governments and the like enjoy the praise from the public who are in awe of the large sums of money that pay for restoration.

Being disappointed with God can be a difficult subject to get your head around

Disappointed With God?

If we begin with an assumption that we are at liberty to be disappointed with God, then I believe we are embarking on a journey that will constantly lead us to believe that God will choose to give and take away on a whim, doing so in such a way that constantly perplexes us and therefore leaving no place for us to understand the involvement of Satan in this fallen world.
