When Someone You Admire Does Something Disgusting

After learning about someone fraudulent, you may wonder whether you can ever trust anyone again. “Who else might be lying to me?” you might ask. It is good to be skeptical, but do not grow cynical. Even in the darkest situations, we can always see the goodness of God.

Why I’m Nervous About Driverless Cars
