  • Do you know the difference in being tested and temptation?

    We know in school students are tested regularly on how they are retaining and understanding the material they are learning. Customers test-drive vehicles to see if they perform as advertised before buying. Our character and spiritual commitments are tested by the fires of hardship, persecution and suffering. The Bible distinguishes between temptation, which is used by Satan to lead into sin, and testing which is used by God to purify us and move us toward maturity and growth.

  • Very few people go through life without something bad happening. Bad things happen. Why?

    Sometimes bad things happen because the devil is real, evil, a spiritual being, powerful, and out to deceive and destroy us. “Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” (I Peter 5:8-9)

    A second thing to remember is that sometimes bad things happen because we live in an imperfect world where imperfect things happen. Cars break down, our health fails, money runs out, children go astray, loved ones die, and so it goes.

  • In its heyday, White City was the home of several stores and was once considered to be a main stop on the way between Hodgenville and other towns such as Elizabethtown or New Haven.

    According to Richard Taylor, a former long-time resident of White City, there were once four stores and a supermarket located in the area.

    The first store to come to town was Anderson’s, run by William “Bill” Anderson, the same Anderson that was visited by Mr. Morrison, credited with coming up with the hamlet’s name.

  • Saint Joachim Catholic Church Cemetery, one of the oldest cemeteries in LaRue County, is about a mile east of White City on Howardstown Road.

    The church was established about 1850 by Father Thomas A. Mulhall Sr., the son of Thomas Kempis Mulhall Sr., who emigrated from Ireland in the early 1800’s.

    Thomas A. Mulhall Sr. built a log cabin church in the White City area that was not far from where the cemetery is located.

    The church was once referred to as Mulhall Chapel. It burned a couple of decades later.  

  • Despite his many family ties in Kentucky, Thomas Lincoln was a wanderer. First settling in Elizabethtown with his new bride, he became restless and moved to the Sinking Spring Farm in LaRue County. In 1809, he bought land on Knob Creek, only a few miles east of Sinking Spring.

    After a land dispute in 1816, he again packed up and set off for Indiana with wife Nancy, daughter Sarah, and son Abraham, leaving behind only two small cabins which quickly fell to ruin.
