God Always Hears

God is always ready and able to help mankind because God's law of good is ever active and all-powerful. Through the ages false theories about God have duped mankind into believing that the Supreme Being is too busy or preoccupied to help individuals with their daily problems. This is not true, and a correct understanding of God's tender love for His creation shows His aid to be ever available.

Thus the people were turned to the rightful worship of one omnipresent God, who answers every call.
