  • COLUMN: God has a reorganizing program for our bankrupt nation

    “America wants God’s blessings, but not God. Our nation has systematically pushed him out of the national consciousness by rejecting Biblical morality, ignoring his word and relying on the political and entertainment areas for moral guidance.” 

    These are the words of John MacArthur and they express the beliefs of many Christian leaders today.

    The Wesley Meadows congregation celebrated the Fourth of July a few days early. On July 1, the group raised the American flag in honor of veterans who have served in the past or currently. Three retired veterans raised the flag for the first time – Jessie Roundtree, who served in the U.S. Army during World War II; Jack Jones, who served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War; and Herman Allen, who served in the U.S. Air Force. Allen called the flag, “the greatest sight he ever saw.”

  • Column: Prayer can reclaim America

     America is a great place to live. It is not perfect, far from it – but it is better than any other nation I know.

    But America has drifted from the principles and standards of our forefathers.  This drifting is not for the better. We are not what we were in the past.

  • COLUMN: Do you know the true cost of freedom?

     Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

    Because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:2

    The 4th of July, Independence Day for the United States of America, is historically a day of celebration. We commemorate our nation's independence from England with fireworks, picnics, and parades. It's a happy time! We love our freedom!

  • TOUCHPOINTS: Stay steadfast as the world passes away

     In Luke 17:20-37 we read about Jesus discussing the coming of God’s kingdom on earth. He said his return would be sudden and without warning. As Jesus was speaking with his disciples he told them when the son of man returns you will know it beyond all doubt.

     Our thoughts in recent days have dealt with Father’s Day and honoring our fathers. Before you can be a good father, you must be a good man. Thank God for the good men we have today and may their number increase.
