    This question is a cry from deep within the suffering human heart most of the time. (Sometimes a grateful heart speaks thus, too.)

    With the attendance rate down to 85 percent Monday, Taylor County School Superintendent Roger Cook said classes will be canceled for the remainder of the week.

  • Is John 3:16 our passport to Heaven?

    If the Bible were destroyed and only John 3:16 remained that would be enough to bring the whole world to salvation. We do not have to be a walking encyclopedia to be saved. When we understand and experience John 3:16 we have a passport to Heaven.

    The cause of salvation is found in the words, “For God so loved the world ...” (John 3:16). Salvation does not begin in the life of man, but in the love of God. God’s love goes beyond all other love. Salvation is rooted and grounded in the love of God.
