FAITHFUL OF GOD OR TROUBLEMAKERS?

(1 Kings 18:17-18) “Then it happened, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said to him, “Is that you, O troubler of Israel?” And he answered, “I have not troubled Israel, but you and your father’s house have, in that you have forsaken the commandments of the LORD and have followed the Baals.” Isn’t it odd […]

WHAT GOD EXPECTS FROM HIS PREACHERS

(2 Timothy 4:1-2) “I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.” Paul told Timothy to preach the word. We […]

HOMOSEXUALITY, WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?

(Matthew 19:2-9) And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them there. The Pharisees also came to Him, testing Him, and saying to Him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?” And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at […]

CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY

(Joshua 24:15) “And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my […]

PLEASE TALK TO ME!

That should be our plea to one another as brethren. Especially if something is on your mind concerning me, please, just talk to me. I’ve had brethren who have given me constructive criticism over the years and always it was appreciated. I may not have appreciated it at that moment, but when I thought it over, […]

TOLERANCE?

Many of us love to watch Duck Dynasty. The reason? They are plain folks who became wealthy doing what they love and are Bible reading, God fearing people. Phil Robertson should have known better than to give an interview to GQ magazine and state his beliefs. He shouldn’t have quoted scripture either unless he was […]

WHAT’S IN YOUR PULPIT?

You’ve probably seen the Capitol One credit card commercial where the question is asked: “What’s in your wallet?” Of course the commercial wants you to compare the benefits you get from your current card as opposed to the Capitol One card. It is slightly entertaining but highly effective. I often wonder if people compare what’s […]

THE PRESS CAME CALLING

The Globe called and I talked with a young lady for a few minutes about the alcohol issue. I told her that if nothing else came from our conversation that the theme should be WE DON’T WANT BARS IN OUR TOWN! It is hard to understand why that is hard to understand! The crime and […]

EVERYONE HAS A PRICE

EVERYONE HAS A PRICE Years ago, I was an avid fan of wrestling. One wrestler’s famous line was, “Everyone has a price.” Now certainly I don’t believe this statement. Jesus Christ didn’t have a price that He would “sell out” for. I also believe there are many God-fearing people that haven’t and won’t sell out […]

BIBLE STUDY….Why?

   Why study the Bible?  (1 Peter 3:15) “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;”  As a Christian, we should study the Bible to be able to defend […]
