  • Thought for the week: Worry looks around, Regret looks back, Faith looks forward.

    Out and about in Hodgenville this week: Well, all I can say about all the rain we had on Friday, that should be enough for a while, I couldn’t believe how fast it came down.

    Several church groups from Hodgenville have gone on mission trips this week, First Baptist Church went to the Dominican Republic, and Parkway Baptist went to Louisiana. I think that is so awesome!

    Mt. Salem Separate Baptist Church

  • Over the years I’ve heard hundreds of stories from people about how they came to faith in Christ, or how God delivered them from something that had them bound or how they were drawn closer to God because of a certain situation.

    More often than not, the circumstances that precede the turning point or the epiphany or the moment of surrender or rescue are dire, tragic and painful. Sometimes the painful situation is what God uses to bring a person from no faith to new faith or running from God to running to him.

  • Arnold Toynbee, the distinguished historian, said, “No major nation has ever been murdered.  They have committed suicide and rotted on the inside.”  I cast my lot with those who believe that our nation is in decline. Our greatest threat is not from without, but within.  We have long been on the path of committing suicide.  Our disobedience to the laws of God seems to be more blatant every year.  If our nation is to remain blessed we must be right before God, live right before men and stand for what is right.
