#BigRead13: Day 5: Confidence

So we had a slight issue with the website (it got hacked, but it's back up, so this is being backdated...)... on #bigread13 we looked at 1 John 4:15 C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God.

I had set the timer on my phone ... and had to resist the desire to check…
