Reader Opinion: Celebrate God
The fool said in his heart, "There is no God." Psalm 14:1a. "For you (God) formed my inward parts; you covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, and that my soul (all souls, whether admitted or not!) knows...

Clergy View: Live on the highest level
"If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone." Romans 12:18 The Christian who wants to obey God will have enemies. When our Lord ministered on this earth, He had enemies. No matter where Paul and the other apostles went they had enemies opposing their...

Reader Opinion: Day of rest
Things will really be peaceful Friday sundown to Saturday sundown if God decides to enforce Exodus 35:3 authorized KJV: "Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitation upon the Sabbath Day." That means no power plants, no vehicles, no furnaces, cookstoves, ships, airplanes, trains,...

Local leaders speak out against pause in travel
Several Brainerd area voices have spoken out publicly regarding President Trump's executive order, widely known as a travel ban, since it was enacted a week ago. The executive order stopped all refugees for 120 days, stopped Syrian refugees indefinitely and blocked entry for people...

Reader Opinion: Christian values?
I read with dismay the Jan. 25 letter "Grow Up." The letter writer says he voted for our current president because, "he isn't afraid to say the things we also say, even if those things are deemed racist, sexist, xenophobic or politically incorrect." If this kind of thinking is what...

Reader Opinion: God bless Trump
"For the Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favor wilt thou compass him as with a shield." Psalm 5:12. My prayer for President Trump. "Psalm 7:9—Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins. As...

Reader Opinion: Happy, blessed New Year
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or nakedness or danger or sword? For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything...

Reader Opinion: Blessed Christmas
"Do not fear..." Luke 1:13&29 & 2:10. After these words, Zechariah doubted, Mary accepted and the shepherds believed. After Zechariah's son was born, he "praised the Lord, Jesus was born, Mary, "treasured these things" and seeing Jesus, the shepherds "glorified and praised God." I...

Reader Opinion: After Thanksgiving
I didn't get this out in time for Thanksgiving but this should ring true any day of the year. I wanted to write something special for Thanksgiving but each year I have more difficulty being thankful. Sounds selfish for someone who wants for little. But those tangible things were never...

Reader Opinion: Praying
"Now, see the mighty hand of God!" Charlton Heston from The Ten Commandments. That's Hollywood. God's book says in Proverbs 22:4: "By humility and fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life." God is mighty when He has to be and humble when we allow Him. Amen. Wow! Who would...

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." Proverbs 3:5 This has been a very bitter, harsh campaign and we were, as Dr. Suess' "Cat in the Hat's" Thing One and Thing Two, we had Evil One and Evil Two, and made us go from Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde...

Reader Opinion: Islam is evil
Oh my God, really? Equating what happened to the Jews at the hands of the Nazi regime to how the Muslims are getting in this country! The nazis hatred of the Jews was racial and biological. The Jewish nation was blessed by God and, yes, there was a lot of conflict between the Christian...
