  • Will Christ reward or cast you into hell?

    God blesses us all with unique and different talents.
    Some are born leaders and teachers — others are musicians or song leaders.
    You have some who are blessed financially so they can give more to serve God and his kingdom.
    Then there is you. How do you use the talents God has blessed you with to honor God?
    Everyone has some talent or God-given ability to serve in some capacity, so there are no excuses if you are not in some way to serve.

  • God is only authority on scripture

    In response to my column two weeks ago regarding the authenticity of the Bible, I received an email from a reader.
    I always welcome emails from my readers, of course. This particular reader made claims that the Bible was actually property of the Catholic Church. The reader went on to elaborate that per the Catholic Church, the Bible was not the only writings of Christianity.
    Finally, my correspondent said we know this to be true since the Roman Catholic Church says so.
    Now, not to pick at other religions, but this doesn’t hold water for me.
