SHARING THE GOSPEL

Have you shared the Gospel recently—or ever?  Would you like to?  We as Christians are commanded to go and share Christ with others (Mark 16:15).  Here is a simple way to do it—just five points to share—or you can copy this and hand it out to those you are trying to reach.  This information is adapted from Evangelism Explosion International. Presenting the Gospel: Grace:         Heaven is a free gift.         It is not deserved, not earned, not merited.         Romans 6:23, Proverbs 14:12, Titus 3:5         This becomes more clear when you understand what the         Bible says...

THE GOLDEN GUARD

As I mentioned in my “pilot” article, I was raised in a strict Christian environment. God was everywhere, watching every move I made. One night, when I was about nine years old, my younger sister and I sneaked out of our bedrooms, down into the kitchen, to get a drink from the refrigerator.

Events in Charlottesville, Virginia that resulted in death, destruction and division. Feel free to read the coverage from the various news sources including Fox, NBC, CNN or where ever you get your “breaking news”. There were plenty of people laying the blame for the tragedy on our President Donald Trump. Before and after he spoke publicly, many including the mayor of Charlottesville blame President Trump for...

“Nothing compare 2 U”

This afternoon’s news about Sinead O’Conner “hits home” for me. According to press reports, she claims to have been living alone for two years, away from her family in Ireland, as “punishment” for being mentally ill, angry and suicidal. She claims to be suffering from three mental illnesses. The singer was quoted as saying, “I’m only one of millions and millions and millions of people who are just like me, actually, who don’t have, necessarily, the resources that I have in my heart or my purse for that matter.” Perhaps the most poignant question she asked was, “Why are...
