One thing must never change: Lord's message

God's word must be presented as He has delivered it to man without change. Notice the following passages; "Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you" (Deut. 4:2), "Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar (Prov. 30:6), "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall ...

Everyone still has lessons to learn

The other day I took two of my grandsons fishing at our community dock. They have been after me to take them for months and a time finally opened for me to fulfill one of my many duties. I had some frozen shrimp that I had caught with a castnet last fall and we headed to the water.

Stand for something greater than yourself

Just thinking of Heaven, part 2

The Hebrew writer spoke of heaven as entering into a rest. "Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For we which have believed do enter into rest … There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own ...

Whatever the weather, God will be there

The other morning as I was driving through Richmond Hill, I noticed a pleasant sight to my left; it was what I can refer to as not Savannah's famous "waving girl" but Richmond Hill's own "waving man."

Just thinking of Heaven, part 1

The word of God is a one of the great blessings mankind has been given. God explains to man how he came to be, how to live, and how to prepare for eternity. In the pages of holy writ we are told of just how "wonderful" heaven will be.

Now that Easter is over, what's next?

This past week people all around the world celebrated the holiday or Holy Day of Easter. For some it is just time off work or an opportunity to be with the family but for Christians it is a time to commemorate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is to this last group that I wish to address this writing.

Life takes the flavor we give it

Spring is alive all around us. The beauty is evident in the blooming trees and azaleas. It is a wonderful time to live in south Georgia! Unless, of course, you have allergies. Mine stay under control most of the time, thanks to the miracles of modern medicine. But I know what it is like to be so clogged by the pollen that I can't smell a thing. And when you can't smell anything, you can't taste anything. And quite frankly it's hard to enjoy all of the beauty when you feel miserable.

Learn from the eagle

God has put His personal touch in every part of His creation. All creation exhibits His handiwork. Man is the most beautiful and precious of God's creations. God gave man a soul, awareness, reasoning and abilities. He also gave man his own will.

Follow God's instructions

On many occasions we buy something that requires assembly. Inside the box is a booklet telling the name of all the parts and how they fit together. In most cases this booklet is placed aside because we know how to put things together. After several minutes of things not fitting together and having parts left that we are pretty sure should have been used, we reach for the booklet, read and then follow the instructions. To our surprise all the pieces were gone and the item looked just like its picture on the box.

Listen to right one for eternal life

Many still believe the lie of Satan today; they fail to see that sin separates man from God (Isaiah 59:1-2). They fail to understand that when they give in to their desires to do wrong things, they - not God - are causing the problem.

What word choices say about the State of the Union's faith connection

Finding faith in the president's annual State of the Union may be less about analyzing overall themes than listening for specific words. Religious responses to Tuesday's speech centered on the concepts and communities President Barack Obama named, and those he left out.

Plow-burning faith can change the world

"So Elijah went from there and found Elisha son of Shaphat. He was plowing with 12 yoke of oxen, and he himself was driving the twelfth pair. Elijah went up to him and threw his cloak around him. Elisha then left his oxen and ran after Elijah. 'Let me kiss my father and mother goodbye,' he said, 'and then I will come with you.' 'Go back,' Elijah replied. 'What have I done to you?' So Elisha left him and went back. He took his yoke of oxen and slaughtered them. He burned the plowing equipment to cook the meat and ...
