On Voting – fourth in a series – by Pastor Tedd

Published October 28, 2016

It’s a humbling thing to consider the matter of voting. + If you voted in 2012, you were one of more than 120 million Americans who cast ballots. + Seeing the political signs in the front yards of my neighborhood, it appears I’ll be cancelling out their vote & they mine. + Even our church family will not likely vote as a solid block. I plan to write in a man’s name for president; I’d guess some church members have a 3rd Party Candidate who will receive their vote; still others will vote for one of the mainline candidates. Some […]

Past elections: ‘dire’ Christian predictions not new

Published October 28, 2016

INTRO from PASTOR TEDD… This article is a good reminder that believers ultimately are people who hope in God and shape their lives in accordance with the promised return of Christ (Titus 2:11-14; I John 3:1-3). Sadly, there’s something about presidential elections that tempt us to forget who’s actually in control. We end up making truth claims about the future we really have no business saying. In II Timothy 3 the Apostle Paul tells Timothy what it will be like in the last days (and it ain’t pretty!). But then he gives these quieting, authoritative words: “You however, continue on in […]

LifeWay pulls Hatmaker books over LGBT views

Published October 28, 2016

INTRO from PASTOR TEDD…  An article about LifeWay pulling books and study materials of popular author and speaker Jen Hatmaker may seem an odd thing to post on our website. I bring it to your attention for two reasons: First, with the internet and social media (Facebook, etc), people have the opportunity to have an immense influence and gain a following, virtually from around the world. For example, more than 600,000 people connect (‘friend’) Hatmaker on Facebook. It used to be that what someone was saying in the name of Christ (sound or unsound, true or false) would require time to […]

Every Click Counts by David Mathis

Published October 7, 2016

We have a large-screen television on the wall in our offices. It’s become a favorite show-and-tell spot when we give guests a tour of our space. It’s a boring screen, in one sense — no movies or fancy graphics, but just a dashboard of the current traffic to the website. But once you learn what the numbers mean, you get a sense of the significance. The main purpose of the screen is to remind our team, as we write and edit and craft social media, that tens of thousands of real-live users access the site each day. The dashboard stays […]

Info On Prophecy Conference this week at CSU-P

Published October 3, 2016

AN EXTREMELY BRIEF PRIMER ON 7TH DAY ADVENTISTS I’m writing this because last week a full-color flyer was mass-mailed in our area announcing a prophecy conference to be held at the local university. I had several people ask me about the conference so I did some research as to who is sponsoring it. I’ve concluded it’s a function of the 7th Day Adventists. There’s nothing in the flyer that states this; I had to ‘google’ the name of the speaker, Mike Sady, to find out who he is. When I did, the links associated with his name consistently identified him […]
