NEW TOPIC: Suffering

The articles within this category respond to the conventional wisdom assertions below, most of which are fallacious.  However, some of these statments contain some truth, and others are totally true but have often not been properly applied (e.g., Thou Shalt Not Kill).  We urge you to read the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5, 6 and 7) to see Jesus' treatment of many things that were considered conventional wisdom in the first century.  We have included some of them here, but have also covered a wide variety of biblical topics for which conventional wisdom falls far short of the biblical standard.  Please read on through the entire list and select the topics that you may have taken for granted to read about first.
