  • Do you attend church regularly? No I do not mean Christmas or Easter, I mean are you a member of a church?
    I have touched on this issue before, but as more than half of Anderson County does not attend church at all, this is directed at those professing Christians who do not.
    Now, there are plenty of “spiritual people” who often say to me “I don’t have to attend church to be a Christian. I can worship God from the comfort of my home.”

  • Recently someone told me I must make a lot of people angry through my column.
    My intention is never to make anyone angry, or in any way do anything but share the word of God.
    Does God’s word make people uncomfortable or even angry? Sure it does. I often write about my personal struggle with sin and my salvation, and feel shameful at some of my own transgressions when I read such blazingly clear and direct charges God asks of his children.
