  • A stroke of faith changes football star

    Forty-one years ago, Steve Starnes played football alongside Al Cowlings and O.J. Simpson as the Buffalo Bills fifth-round draft pick out of the University of Tampa.
    He also played for the Green Bay Packers and the (former) Boston Patriots.
     He was big and burly. Then he injured his neck and his professional football career, the dream of many little boys and grown men, was cut short. Five years ago a stroke nearly took his life.

  • Sharing the word is every Christian’s duty

    What do you remember about the first Apostle, Andrew?
    Without some research, I personally can’t think of much about Andrew. He is one of the lesser known Apostles, and mentioned only briefly in the Bible.
    However, his message goes deep. John 1: 41, “The first thing Andrew did (after he had met Christ) was to find his brother Simon and tell him we have found the Messiah.”
    Then, in John 6:8-9, Andrew introduces the boy with five small loaves and two small fish to Jesus who then fed 5,000.

    The homecoming on Oct. 2 will be the church’s 167th anniversary.

  • Church at home is no real substitute

    Does a person who claims to be a Christian have to attend a church?
    I have encountered numerous people who say they don’t believe in organized religion or that they have “church time” alone at home. I do not buy into this line of thinking, but let’s remove my opinion and consult with the inspired word of God.

  • Christ’s words show he is God’s equal

    Religion is a funny thing. It often confuses me how some different religions interpret the Bible so differently than I do.
    I have been wrestling toe to toe with a very close friend of a different faith (I am Baptist) over one such difference. My friend’s church contends that Jesus is an angel, subservient to God, and less than God.

  • Have you truly sacrificed for God?

    The power.
    The power to destroy all of your enemies.
    The power to be the most important.
    The power to show the world you are the ruler of all.
    Hollywood often portrays powerful, vengeful people as heroes and winners. When you contemplate that Jesus had the power to destroy the world and all of his enemies, to end the lives of the men torturing and spitting on and mocking him, remember this: he didn’t retaliate.
    As the old hymn says, “He could have called 10,000 angels to destroy the world, but he died alone, for you and me.”
