Response to Acts17Apologetics: The Trinity in Red Letters (A Reply to Yusha Evans)

But I do hope some who knew me there will read this and be inspired to look into the reasons I felt compelled to leave. Without further ado:

For reasons I suspect many of you will privately agree with, I am no longer employable by Answers in Genesis. It is with a heavy heart that I writ…
