  • COLUMN: Your best days are ahead

    Genesis 4:25 says Eve bore a son and named him Seth “for God has appointed another seed for me instead of Abel, whom Cain killed.”

    God promised that Eve’s children would bless the world. But now one of them is dead, the other’s on the run and everything’s fallen apart. Ever been there?

    Just because your plan fails doesn’t mean God’s plan will. Adam knew his wife again and she bore a son and called his name Seth: for God, said she, “hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel whom Cain slew.”

  • COLUMN: It's about capital 'H-I-M,' not about you

    Colossians 1:16 says “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth.”

    The entire universe and every molecule, atom and electron were created by Jesus Christ. Everything we cannot see with our physical senses is called the invisible realm and has been created by God.

    Jesus Christ is lord of the universe and his authority is above all negative cosmic powers including the powers of darkness. By his power the whole universe and every created thing is held together. Jesus is the ultimate source.

  • TOUCHPOINTS: A good reputation is based in morality

  • COLUMN: Bury the hatchet, not the issue

    The memory of 9/11 is still fresh in the minds of many, even after 10 years. But for those minds that never really understood what happened, the confusion of that day is as memorable as the tragedy itself.
    On Sept. 11, 2001, I woke up early to prepare for the day ahead. I don’t remember what I ate, what I wore or any conversations I had. I do remember it was a Tuesday and I was in the 7th grade. Tuesdays were my dad’s days to come pick me up – my favorite day of the week.

  • COLUMN: Remember 9/12

    Some days are etched in our memory as though they are historical markers, and recalling them causes us to remember where we were and what we were doing as those events unfolded. Such are the assassination of President Kennedy and the attack upon the World Trade Center. This weekend we have been recalling September 11, 2001.

  • Campbellsville University to host 400th anniversary of King James Bible

    Campbellsville University will be hosting a celebration for the 400th year anniversary of the King James Bible. There will be three evenings of celebration as well as a morning chapel service.

    In 1611, after years of translating and revising previous versions of the English Bible, a version authorized by King James I of England and King James VI of Scotland was published. This version became the standard for people and Protestant Christians in the English-speaking world.

  • COLUMN: With God's help, we can defeat sin

    “A life without sin.” How does that sound to you? Would you like to live without sin? Is it really possible? John speaks to this subject when he says, “so that you may not sin.” (I John 2:1)

    I think there are many who do not want to live a life without sin and some even deny its existence. Those people may think it is impossible or they may want to engage in its fleeting pleasures. How could this be? Hebrews 11:25 does speak of “the passing pleasures of sin.” But God says over and over in his word that sin is displeasing to him.

  • COLUMN: God blesses those who work for peace

    God blesses those who work for peace. Matthew 5:9

    Sympathize with the other person’s feelings. Never try to talk someone out of how they feel. Just listen without being defensive. Nod that you understand even when you don’t agree.

    Feelings aren’t always true or logical.

    David said, “When my … feelings were hurt, I was as stupid as an animal” Psalm 73:21-22.

  • Poplar Grove congregation holding fundraiser for improvements

    The Reverend Mark Price, pastor of Poplar Grove Methodist Church, is a firm believer that a small congregation can do big things.
    The church, nestled in a hollow near where Taylor, Green and LaRue Counties join, has according to Price an average attendance of about 18 worshippers.
    “Jesus took 12 men and turned the world upside down,” said the pastor who also shepherds Taylor’s Chapel in Green County. “I tell my congregation, ‘Don’t call yourself small just because you’re few in number.’”
