In August 1995 David Kaczynski's wife Linda asked him a difficult question: "Do you think your brother Ted is the Unabomber?" He couldn't be, David thought.

Hearing God - developing a conversational relationship with God

"God spoke to me." "The Spirit spoke to my heart." "God revealed the idea to me."
