  • Thanksgiving isn’t a religion-free zone

    Thanksgiving is an unusual holiday for it is a time when we combine God, government and society. It seems that it is OK for anyone, regardless of his religion, to be thankful.

    That bothers me, because when something is so universally accepted, it means it has been watered down and changed from its original purpose. For example, look at what has happened to Christmas and Easter.

  • Operation Christmas Child collection is this week

    Operation Christmas Child collection week kicked off on Monday. Gift boxes can be dropped off at First Baptist Church in Hodgenville.

    Operation Christmas Child provides Christmas gifts to children in impoverished countries worldwide.

    Donors pack toys, toiletries, school supplies and other items into a shoebox-sized container and ship it via a collection site. Many churches and other businesses participate in the program.

  • Sin comes in three flavors: commission, omission, disposition

    Sin is Public Enemy Number One. It always has been, and always will be. Sin breaks the heart of God, nailed Jesus to the cross and carries men down to hell.

    We read in 1 John 3:4 that “sin is lawlessness.” Someone says, “I don’t see any harm in this thing or that thing.” But it is not a question of how we see things, but how God sees them. Since he is God he has a right to say “thou shalt” or “thou shalt not.”

  • God bless our veterans

    We have just celebrated Veterans Day/Remembrance Day. Honoring all our armed service veterans is one of the good things we do as a nation. To these veterans we owe a debt of gratitude because they were willing to go, to serve and to give on behalf of the United States of America. God bless you!

  • Killjoys existed in first century church

    People can rob us of our joy. A lack of unity in the church at Philippi was threatening to rob Paul of his joy. Epaphroditus had evidently brought news to Paul in Rome that two women in the church were not getting along.

    Paul says, “Make my joy complete by being of the same minds” (Philippians 2:2).

  • 14 years for the Wilkinsons

    On Nov. 18, 2000, First Baptist Hodgenville began a new era by selecting Rev. Jerry Wilkinson as pastor. He replaced the late Pastor Emeritus, Rev. Donohue Price who had retired due to bad health after being with the church 43 years. Rev. Wilkinson preached his first sermon as pastor on the second Sunday morning in December 2000.

  • Local churches minister in the Philippines

    A team of Kentucky Baptists brought healing and hope to hundreds of people in the Philippines still recovering from Typhoon Pablo, a devastating storm that struck the island nation two years ago.

    The six-member team, including members of Rolling Fork Baptist Church in Boston, provided medical exams and treatment to nearly 900 people in the Philippines between Aug. 24 and Sept. 2. They also held worship services and led two pastors’ conferences.

    Rolling Fork pastor Bruce Nichols said much work remains for those trying to rebuild.
