Is Google More Famous Than Jesus?

I picked this subject to blog on because of a thought that came to me one day with regards to where and how people seek wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.

As I got out of the car to let my granddaughter out a couple that was walking by were debating something, and one of them said, “just Google it,” and m
