  • 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).

  • COLUMN: What if Christ had not risen?

     If there had been no resurrection from the dead that would be the worst thing that could happen to any of us. There is no hope without the resurrection.  There would be no hope here and now or any hope there and then. Paul says if there is no resurrection we are of all men most miserable.

  • COLUMN: Are you prepared to die?

     

    "My time is near." Those words are found in Matthew 26:18 as Jesus directed his disciples to prepare for the Passover that he would celebrate with them. They were to go to a certain home and say, "The Teacher says, 'My time is near; I am to keep the Passover at your house with my disciples.'"

    Jesus knew he was going to die. Opposition toward him had continued to grow. Soon they would seize him and he would be put to death. He knew what was in his immediate future.
