OPINION: Jessica Szilagyi says the plan to reopen Georgia is all about choice and that's exactly why it's working how it should.

OPINION: "You have likely heard the statistics, such as 2/3 of children raised in Christian homes are leaving the church and other ‘studies’ claiming a rate of exodus as high as 88%2. Regardless of the accuracy of these statistics, few Christians would deny the alarming departure rate they have witnessed not only in their churches, but in their own families."
FAITH COLUMN: "You see, the tide is changing. Many people have been rescued by the Savior. This is because today we have more information available to answer people’s questions about evolution than at any previous point in the church’s history."
