In this life, there are various struggles we deal with on a daily basis. Some of us are constantly turned away, rejected and talked about.
Jonathan Edwards made the following astonishing statement in "The Wisdom of God Displayed in the Way of Salvation":
To say that we live in a country that is divided on many issues would be an understatement. We have gotten to the point that individual states are defined as either blue or red and most of us know what that means.
Some misunderstand God's promise of eternal life. They of think they can do what they want in the name of religion and it will be acceptable to God.
Long County has a new church and a pastor who is eager to become a part of the community.
The presence of the largest Army installation east of the Mississippi has been woven into the fabric of who we are as Liberty County. The 3rd Infantry Division is often the first major fighting force sent into areas where our country is either trying to preserve our own liberty or helping other countries achieve theirs.
Romans 6:23 tells us that the wage of sin is death, meaning eternal separation from God. The only way to prevent this from happening is to become a follower of Jesus Christ, allowing him to forgive us from our sins. After accepting Christ, we become free from the power of sin, which means that willful sin doesn't have to be a way of life.
In the Bible, there is an account of a man named Jonah who tried to run from God. He was to go to the city of Nineveh and "cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me" (Jonah 1:1).
The language of blessing is used today with little to no understanding of its nature or cost.
A weeklong celebration for the leaders of Faith Temple Holiness Church concludes today.

Mankind has become so unfaithful and uncommitted. Men and women have little regard for faithfulness when it comes to the bonds of marriage. Their relationships lack commitment. There was a time when a man's word meant something; a man's word was his bond.
It's that time of the year. Vacation is over, and it's time to return to school.
"Woe unto those who call good evil and evil good." I saw those words posted on Facebook recently. Yes, I have a Facebook page, but that is a story for another day.
Paul wrote that the gospel is the "power of God unto salvation." The gospel message is the "key" to man's salvation.
Last Monday, I received a call from a gentleman that had just moved into the area. Where he got my cell number I don't know, but he was concerned about a gentlemen he had seen at the side of the road.
Sometimes, habits are not good.
Nile isn’t a good speechwriter — he’s a great speechwriter.
A new year means planning, new expectations and setting goals.
Have you ever asked yourself, "Who would I like to become?" What people or events in life have hindered your reaching that goal? To achieve something, you have to remove all distractions that are blocking you from making progress. Fear stops most people from getting what they want - fear of failure, fear of success, fear of rejection, of the unknown, of disappointment. Then, of course, the "what if" fears always fuel these hindrances.
I went to a conference last week in Florida and when traveling home on Interstate 95, I noticed some flashing lights to my left in the oncoming lanes.

At the beginning of a new year, many resolutions are made. If someone could find a way to fine or charge people for broken resolutions, they would quickly become very wealthy.
Sunday afternoon, I was watching a football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers. I'm not a fan of either team; the only reason I was watching it was that it was the playoffs.
I like books. I dearly love to read. When I was a young boy my mom took me to the local library every week. I checked out all kinds of books - mystery, sports, biography and others.
"God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds" - Hebrews 1:1-2

Elisha then left his oxen and ran after Elijah. 'Let me kiss my father and mother goodbye,' he said, 'and then I will come with you.' 'Go back,' Elijah replied. 'What have I done to you?'

Mankind, in general, is selfish. We want what we want now, and we think we deserve it.
