You’ve Probably Heard about ‘Proposition One’

Posted in Announcements by Jim on October 15, 2014

And the campaign by many churches to support a ‘yes’ vote on the measure.  Lonnie Wilkey, the editor of the Baptist and Reflector, writes-

I received an interesting news release this week from the Yes on 1 organization in Tennessee. It certainly provides some food for thought.

For those who regularly read my blog and columns in the Baptist and Reflector, it is no secret that I wholeheartedly endorse the support of Yes on 1 which is an effort to educate Tennesseans about the need to vote for Amendment 1 which will appear on the state ballot on election day, Nov. 4. Amendment 1, if passed, can restore some common sense restrictions on abortion that are already in place in states surrounding Tennessee.

According to the news release, the group which opposes Yes on 1 is being funded primarily by eight abortion facilities in Tennessee and even out of state that have given the “No on 1″ organization $1.4 million of the $1.5 million they have received. According to their campaign disclosure, only 100 individuals have given more than $100 each.

If they are spending that kind of money it’s a pretty sure thing that they want to defeat the measure and continue to annihilate generations of unborn children.

Your pastor needs your prayers. 1,700 leave the ministry every month. Only 1 in 10 make it to retirement.

Please remember Chase and Destiney- as they get married on the 11th.  They’re very excited and very nervous (as you can imagine) and as with all who begin a new phase of life, could use your prayers on their behalf.

Your Good Name is All You Really Have

Posted in Announcements by Jim on October 10, 2014

I remember many years ago folk telling me that your good name is all you really have.  If you aren’t a person of your word, what are you?  I was reminded of that again tonight while I was reading a commentary on Genesis.  Martin Luther remarked

Laban did not have a good reputation among his pious and honorable neighbors, who undoubtedly understood his evil wiles and the wrongs he inflicted on pious and faithful Jacob during those seven years. Therefore he collected fickle people who would not disapprove of this imposture. This means that he was an exceedingly evil old fox completely ruined by greed.

All of us know folk who don’t have a good reputation.  We followers of Christ should not be among them.
