Ask AAF a Question!

I have recently gotten an email from AAF member David F. regarding a moral issue he was facing, and decided to share it with all of you in case you have similar issues. If you ever are having an issue and need guidance, feel free to send us an email (if you don't know our email look on the facebook group) and I'll post it here along with my guidance. Here is the problem David was facing:

A strange man was distributing a book for free the other day which I later found out to be The New Testament. I don't really know what to do now. So I seek moral guidance from AAF: is it OK to throw it out, given that it gets recycled? Would I make God cry?

Best Regards,
David F

Well, David, that is a very tough situation. I will tell you a true story from my life so that it may inspire you: I once had to write something down, but, alas, there was no paper nearby! I frantically searched and searched, and after many seconds finally found one of those New Testament books of which you refer to. I joyously tore the first page out of it (which, if you are wondering, is mostly blank), and wrote what I needed to on it. So, my young lad, my advice is, don't throw it away! After all, you never know when you may need scrap paper.

Oh, and to answer your final question, it wouldn't make God cry, since God obviously lacks tear ducts.

If anyone else has any other suggestions for David, feel free to leave comments. And if you find yourselves needing guidance, send us an email! We're happy to help out; that's what we're here for (along with a bunch of other things, of course).

Um, excuse me Franklin, man was made in God's image, so why wouldn't God have tear ducts? What do you think rain is?
