Mr. Varga wonders – is God good? ("Is God really love?" Dec. 7) Really? And at Christmas season?
He offers a time-worn atheistic theory that a good God, who is also all-powerful, would not allow evil to exist. Friend, it is called free will. God is also merciful.

Have we lost our bearings – so PC and progressive it offends some to hear Christ’s name at Christmas time?
Christianity was the motive that brought the Pilgrims to America, and Christianity and its doctrines that influenced the writing of our Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence, as well as our form of government.
The God that created this earth and millions of forms of life thereon is indeed good! And yes evil exists, but only as long as God has determined. Then evil will be judged.
God’s goodness is seen in His Son, Jesus Christ, who came to pay our sin debt – that’s why we rejoice at Christmas time and say “Merry Christmas” and give gifts – because God is good.

America is a Christian nation because it began that way, and because the majority of Americans are still Christian in belief.
Rejoice, and Merry Christmas.
