Letter: No highway in Anderson was built by God

The Herald Bulletin carried a story that the city of Anderson will not be responsible for any automobile damage due to potholes. They have declared that potholes are an "act of God."

Isaiah 35:8: "And a highway will be there; it will be called the way of holiness."

So far as I know there is not a highway in Anderson that has been built by God. Holiness, as Bible scholars know, is not the same as potholes. There is no way that a pothole is holy. Possibly they are sinister or evil ... but not holy.

So, if God did not build the highway, why should he be responsible for its maintenance?

After consulting many sources, I conclude that highway (i.e.) Rangeline Road, Eighth Street, Fifth Street, should have been built properly and sealed. In that case there would be no potholes.

God has all he can do to encourage Christians to walk the straight and narrow Highway of Holiness. Too many seem to prefer the potholes of life.

Now that Andrew Luck is getting ready to start the third year of his NFL career, did the Colts make the right decision to release Peyton Manning and turn the offense over to Luck?

Yes, the future is bright.
No, the Colts would have won another Super Bowl by now if they had kept Manning.
Don't know; don't care
