  • Do you want a fool-proof, guilt-free way to get rid of your enemies? Well, God has given a way in scripture for you to do just that.

    Paul, in Romans 12:20, quotes Proverbs 25:22, which says, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head” (ESV).

    Although numerous interpretations of this passage have been made over the years, I believe that this passage is simply stating that acts of kindness done to your enemy shame him and bring him to a place of repentance.

  • The Rev. Paul Lipscomb was recently announced as the pastor of Pigeon Fork Baptist Church, according to a news release.
