    Freedom Baptist to hold concert

  • 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).
