  • Is the enemy capable of producing a fake, counterfeit religion? Absolutely. If the enemy, Satan, can get well-meaning people to believe that by doing a thing — sitting on a church pew for a couple of hours a week — is a proper response and all that is necessary to be in a right relationship with God, he has succeeded.
    I have heard it said like this: “Sitting in a hen house don’t make you a chicken.”

  • I wish to take a slight detour in my feeble efforts to do my homework, and prepare something worthwhile for the readers of this “faith” article.
    Most of this week’s article is taken from a quote from a young pastor that I am acquainted with, and quite amazed by the power of his ministry and  what God is doing in his church.
    JD Greear is a young pastor at Summit Church in Raleigh, N.C. JD is a wonderful preacher, teacher and book writer.
