  • COLUMN: Remember, people are what we count in life

     

    The ability to remember is a wonderful gift God has given us. Some memories cause us to laugh, while others cause us to weep. Memories are also very practical. If we could not remember that a red light means “stop” we would be in trouble. 

  • COLUMN: Memorial Day helps us remember

    The ability to remember is a wonderful gift God has given us. Some memories cause us to laugh, while others cause us to weep. Memories are also very practical. If we could not remember that a red light means "stop" we would be in trouble.

    But the problem is that sometimes our memory fails us. Sometimes we forget. There are events we should never forget. Memorial Day commemorates some of them.

  • COLUMN: Let life kick you forward

    None of us are immune to discouragement. Even the prophet Elijah got discouraged. He had boldness, faith and power when he faced the false worshippers of Baal in I Kings 18, but in the very next chapter, fear has replaced faith, his power is drained by self-pity and disobedience replaced obedience.

    Discouragement brought changes to Elijah. He saw himself as less than he was. Fear brought misery and caused him to evade his responsibilities. He even began to blame God for his situation and he felt that he was the only faithful servant left.

  • COLUMN: The Bible warns against gossip

    Do not spread slanderous gossip among your people. Leviticus 19:16

    What is it about gossip that entices people? Deep inside a whisperer, there is a deep hurt and a feeling of very low self-esteem.

    Gossip blends two other sins.

    First, either through what is said or what is left unsaid, gossip often uses half-truths or outright lies to throw doubt on the character of another person. Second, when we gossip about a person we are stealing from them a reputation.

  • COLUMN: God bless our mothers

     Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.

    The classic description of Christian womanhood and motherhood is found in Proverbs 31:10-31. This passage gives the virtues and characteristics of the Christian wife and mother. Reading Proverbs we realize their influence is immeasurable and irreplaceable.

     National Day of Prayer observance

  • COLUMN: There are things God will not do

    Jeremiah 32:17 says of God, "Nothing is too difficult for you." God created the trees, seas, all that we can see and we say with Jeremiah, there is nothing God cannot do. I believe that. But at the same time I would say there are things that God will not do.

    God will not sin. He is pure, holy and righteous. He says in Leviticus 11:44, "I am your God. Be holy, for I am holy." God has never and will never allow sin to enter his life or alter his character.

  • Mount Zion celebrates 200 years of faith and family

    Abraham Lincoln was a 5-year-old boy playing on a farm a few miles to the northwest when Mount Zion Separate Baptist Church was constituted in 1814.   James Madison was president of the country and the Battle of New Orleans was still almost a year into the future.
    The land on which the church was built, at the northern edge of what is now Hart County (formed in 1819), was at that time part of Hardin County as was LaRue (1843).
