Reader Opinion: Gratitude to God
Dear God, I am just waiting for Thanksgiving. I am so grateful for so many things this year and I hope and pray that many will understand the importance of being grateful, even in times of suffering. As I continue to learn more about you, God, as I study the Bible, I truly have the...

Reader Opinion: Christians and voting
A lot of people have pointed to Jesus' and God's word when it comes to the immigration policies of this country. Well, what would Jesus say about the illegal immigrants and the abortion issue? If you believe the Bible is true, then you would see that God (Jesus) condemns both of these...

God and our Founding Forefathers created the greatest constitutional republic in the world. In recent history the Democrats/liberals/socialists are working overtime to kick God out of schools, governmental buildings, have no country borders (create a world order), create an attitude...

Reader Opinion: We need God
It was the Fourth of July week and it's a tradition in our church to end the service with a patriotic song. This year it was "God Bless America." I could not help but think that we are such a nation of hypocrites sometimes, when we invoke God's help with our nation's problems but...

Clergy View: The Antichrist
The Bible is truth. Truth about God and truth about humanity. The Bible also tells the end of history; that in the last days, there will be times of difficulty, which will be full of human and supernatural conflict, climaxed by the coming of an adversary of God, called in Scripture...

Opinion: Following Jesus, or following Trump?
"No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other." (Matthew 6:24) The verse refers to money, but in light of today's debate about the unaccountable devotion many Christian leaders have for President...
