  • Only God can transform violent, wicked hearts

    Last month there was a rare string of murders that took place. Unfortunately, murder is not a rarity, but these particular homicides would have never been considered newsworthy outside their local areas had these not been so eerily similar: 19 people were murdered in four separate occurrences over the course of four days.

  • Real reason to commemorate Oct. 31 isn’t Halloween

    Tomorrow evening our streets will be abuzz with the sights and sounds of Halloween.
    Children will be dressed as their favorite super heroes, princesses, pirates and poltergeists.
    Tricks will be threatened, treats will be given and sugar-highs will abound.
    Little cowboys and ladybugs will sit among piles of sweet delights, counting their treasures as their parents cringe at the sight of the confection overload. Come Friday morning, Wal-Mart will have sweet deals (pun intended) for all the grownups (me included) who want to get in on the candy rush themselves.

  • All are guilty in rejecting the word of God

    “I see the sun … it is beautiful.” These were the words of George Souliotes as he was walking out of a California prison a free man, after spending 17 years incarcerated for a crime he was innocent of.
    The 72-year-old Greek immigrant, who was convicted of triple murder, had his case taken up by an innocence project that worked to overturn his sentence, re-examining and disproving much of the forensic evidence that was used to condemn him.

    Freedom Baptist to hold concert

  • Instead of moping about sin, rejoice in God’s forgiveness

    Last weekend, I had a particularly bad day. I do not mean bad as in the sense that the day was inherently corrupt, since the holy scriptures indicate that each day is fashioned by God (Psalm 118:24). By “bad” I mean what I contributed to it, i.e., my sinful nature as it is inclined to act and react wrongfully in the daily operations of life (Rom. 7: 14ff).
