What Determines Right?

by admin

What Determines Right? Bill Crews NOT REASON: “For seeing that in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom knew not God, it was God’s good pleasure through the foolishness of preaching (message preached) to save them that believe.” (1 Cor. 1:21). “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my […]

Painting Possums

by admin

Painting Possums Greg Gwin Several years ago we knew a man with the unusual hobby of trapping possums. No, he didn’t eat them. He painted them! That’s right – he would catch these critters in a box trap, and then he painted them with fluorescent paint and released them. Sounds weird, doesn’t it? But this […]

Excuses:

by admin

Excuses:  Perhaps too many of us are like the two men who went quail hunting on Sunday morning.  One said, “We are liable to go to the devil for going hunting when we ought to be at Church.” The other replied, “Well, I couldn’t have gone anyway, because I have a sick child at home.”

A Swarm of B’s

by admin

A SWARM OF B’S Be regular at church. Be punctual on all occasions. Be worshipful and reverent. Be generous and charitable of other’s mistakes. Be sociable. Be optimistic in all undertakings. Be doers of the Word and not hearers only.   From The Sentinel (11-21-48)

2016 (#4)

by admin

  All people make mistakes; that’s why they put erasers on pencils. The average church has too many bystanders and not enough standbyers. Some people are like buzzards; they never go near a church unless someone dies. Prejudice is a great time-saver; it enables a man to form opinions without bothering to get the facts. […]

Does It Seem Strange . . .

by admin

DOES IT SEEM STRANGE that the more active you are in the church the more you see the need to be at every service? The stronger your faith becomes, the more active your service is. If you feel nothing or think nothing about forsaking the various assemblies of the Lord’s church, rest assured you have […]

Do You Find the Services Dull?

by admin

Do You Find the Services Dull? Some members find the services of the church dull and uninteresting. They attend only from a sense of duty, hoping to escape the eternal fires of hell. But they derive no joy from the services. Having come, they interest themselves in their neighbor’s clothes or children or other distractions, […]

Has This Ever Happened to You?

by admin

Has This Ever Happened to You? You went through an entire song service without even thinking about what you were singing? You bowed your head and closed your eyes during the prayer, but you really didn’t become involved in the prayer? You were more interested in when the preacher would finish the sermon than in […]

The Devil’s Beatitudes

by admin

The Devil’s Beatitudes If the devil were to write his beatitudes they might go something like this: Blessed are those who are too tired, too busy, too distracted to spend an hour once a week with their fellow Christians – they are my best workers. Blessed are those Christians who wait to be asked and […]

The Note on the Door

by admin

The Note on the Door Charlie T. Garner (This is a true story.  I know personally the parties involved.) Love dwindled, unhappiness and dissatisfaction grew, daily fussing and fighting characterized the relationship of the husband and wife, and ultimately, a divorce wrecked the home, leaving two bewildered, emotionally scarred children in its wake.  The father […]

We Are Fooling Ourselves If We Believe

by admin

We Are Fooling Ourselves If We Believe: Lalo Enriquez God can be mocked. The scripture says: “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked…” (Gal 6:7) To think that we can “turn up our nose to a loving God, sneer at or treat Him with contempt” without final retribution, is to fool ourselves. He may […]
