Not long ago I was telling one of my sons about a trip I took the summer I turned 16 years old. I was telling it as if he already knew the basic facts, and I was filling in some details. But then he said something that surprised me.
God's word must be presented as He has delivered it to man without change. Notice the following passages; "Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you" (Deut. 4:2), "Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar (Prov. 30:6), "For I testify unto ...
The other day I took two of my grandsons fishing at our community dock. They have been after me to take them for months and a time finally opened for me to fulfill one of my many duties. I had some frozen shrimp that I had caught with a castnet last fall and we headed to the water.

The Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ was founded in 1919 in Columbus, Ohio, by the late Bishop R.C. Lawson. His teachings still hold true today. He penned the following:
The Hebrew writer spoke of heaven as entering into a rest. "Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For we which have believed do enter into rest ...
A group in our church recently finished a course on money management. We watched video clips of Dave Ramsey, read his book, and completed homework assignments each week.
The other morning as I was driving through Richmond Hill, I noticed a pleasant sight to my left; it was what I can refer to as not Savannah's famous "waving girl" but Richmond Hill's own "waving man."
The word of God is a one of the great blessings mankind has been given. God explains to man how he came to be, how to live, and how to prepare for eternity. In the pages of holy writ we are told of just how "wonderful" heaven will be.
This past week people all around the world celebrated the holiday or Holy Day of Easter. For some it is just time off work or an opportunity to be with the family but for Christians it is a time to commemorate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is to this last group that I wish to address this writing.
Spring is alive all around us. The beauty is evident in the blooming trees and azaleas. It is a wonderful time to live in south Georgia! Unless, of course, you have allergies. Mine stay under control most of the time, thanks to the miracles of modern medicine. But I know what it is like to be so clogged by the pollen that I can't smell a thing. And when you can't smell anything, you can't ...
God has put His personal touch in every part of His creation. All creation exhibits His handiwork. Man is the most beautiful and precious of God's creations. God gave man a soul, awareness, reasoning and abilities. He also gave man his own will.
On many occasions we buy something that requires assembly. Inside the box is a booklet telling the name of all the parts and how they fit together. In most cases this booklet is placed aside because we know how to put things together. After several minutes of things not fitting together and having parts left that we are pretty sure should have been used, we reach for the booklet, read and then follow the instructions. ...
Easter weekend is upon us and for some this is just a secular holiday; time to have fun, be off work, and be with the family.
Tomorrow, in churches all around the world, Christians will celebrate the most important day of the year. We will celebrate Easter. We will celebrate Resurrection Sunday! We will sing songs, and read Scripture, and pray, and give honor to the One who was raised from the dead some 2000 years ago.
While reading a book on business, I came across an interesting idea: A business owner should have a strategic view and not a tactical view of his or her business.
In the next few weeks, many area teens will receive their diplomas, which means that they officially will be graduated.
I believe that God is absolutely sovereign. That means that he is in control of all things, and that nothing is outside of his authority. He is the one and only God. He knows all things. He is all-powerful.
When man was created and placed in the Garden of Eden, God's plan of creation was completed. Man giving in to Satan turned this scene into a wicked and ugly one.
Members of Fellowship of Love in Allenhurst are pausing today to express their love and appreciation for their leaders - and celebrating in a big way.
Many look forward to Mother's Day, a time to honor, remember and celebrate motherhood.
Millions of people walk every day for various reasons, primarily to get some exercise. Others walk to support different causes.
Eight years ago this April, my mother passed away. It has been a while since that thought has caused me to burst out in tears, but it still fills me with deep sadness. I miss her terribly. I would give just about anything to be able to hear her deep Southern drawl on the telephone again.
Jesus said, "He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him; the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day" (John 12:48). Knowing how much depends on obeying his word, a study of the Bible should be important to everyone.
First and foremost, I wish all mothers a wonderful and happy Mother's Day.
