I was reading a goofy mystery written in the mid-'70s that had hippie characters and many others that represented that phase of our culture. And, I read a comment that got my attention. "Alfie" said that in 1966 Time Magazine stated "God is Dead." I most certainly remember the overall effect of that phrase in our society.

So, out of curiosity, I decided to see when Time Magazine's issue came out.

It was April 8, 1966. Exactly one week before I received Jesus, the Son of God, as my Savior. So if "God" was dead (or planning to die), I'm glad He didn't disappear before pouring forth piles of effort to bring me into His Family.

BTW, I know the "God is dead" statement goes back decades, etc.... but I still had to chuckle at the cultural relativity to my life change.

Sounds like somebody should have checked their sources before submitting that article!
