Here is an article I wrote regarding the seven aspects of the coming judgment of God, that hopefully will prove beneficial to our readers:
From the Denver Post, comes the following article heading: “Growing number of worshipers make themselves at home.”
Just wondered what views you brethren have on this growing phenomenon?
From NPR, comes the above article heading.
The beginning of the article http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=128265730 states:
Quote: “Federal data from 2007 says 40 percent of births in America are to unwed mothers, a trend experts say is especially common in middle-class America. In one St. Louis community, the notion of getting married and having children — in that order — seems quaint.”
The woman in this story (Colleen Segbers) confesses that she didn’t mean to get pregnant six years ago with her daughter, Gwen.
“It was an afternoon of Budweiser beer and the hot sun,” she laughs. “It happened. It was OK.”
Brethren, it’s no laughing matter. When 40 percent of births in America are to unwed mothers, there is something terribly awry with that statistic. As members of the Lord’s church, we need to be stressing the importance of the institution of marriage, training our young men and women about the responsibility of bringing children into the world under the guidance of godly parents which make up the home.
Note the reason why the couple mentioned in this article finally married:
“After her daughter was born, Segbers did marry Gwen’s father. She loves her husband, she says, but they didn’t get married because they had a baby together or even because they were in love. They did it so she could have insurance.”
They only went through a ceremony was because she could have insurance. Is that a viable reason to get married?
No wonder immorality is rampant in our country today. May God help us to teach our young people the moral principles found in God’s word.
Saturdays are like any other day for me. Whatever needs to be done is done. This morning, I’ll go grocery shopping, get my song list ready for the song service tomorrow, write and post another article to my blog, study my adult Bible class lesson to present tomorrow morning, and walk my dog (or rather she walks me!) :).
1st semester accomplishments are:
1) Posted 248 Bible study articles to my blog (wrote most of them).
2) Presented 13 Bible-based sermons before the Montana St. congregation.
3) Presented 23 Bible study lessons before the Montana St. adult Bible class.
4) From Jan – June, 2010, I’ve had 13,295 folks from 128 countries hit on my blog site. There were 61,543 page views during this period. Of these visitors, 67 percent were new visitors to my blog.
5) Presented 6 Bible-based lessons to the residents of our local Veterans Home.
This morning, I thought I would share another one of Ramnath Subramanian’s articles with the fellows. Ramnath is a sixth-grade science teacher at Eastwood Knolls School in El Paso who submits an article each Thursday for the El Paso Times on educational topics.
As he points out in this article, we need to teach our children the power of creative writing, and the ability to communicate, not only with words, but adding color and imagination to those words:
My preferred writing instrument is the pen over the pencil, simply because of the permanency of the ink. The only time I actually write with a pen, is when I’m taking notes at work or when I’m jotting down ideas for an article. Like a lot of other folks in today’s digital world, I prefer the word processor over both pen and pencil for writing purposes.
In her article entitled, “The Sacrifices of the Religion of Liberalism,” Canada Free Press (CFP) writer Kelly O’Connell describes the Marxist state, its origin, and how it operates. Brethren, this is scary stuff!
Ramnath Subramanian, a sixth-grade science teacher at Eastwood Knolls School in El Paso who writes for the El Paso Times on educational topics, emphasizes an important need of our society in his most recent article – discipline.
His ending remark says it all: “It is time to put our fiddles away, and reclaim America.”
To that remark, I say, “Amen” and “Amen.”
A project I want to finish in March is getting my income taxes figured during Spring Break. We’re praying that we get a refund. The spiritual project in March, is to keep writing Bible-related articles that apply to every day Christian living.
I’m also contemplating opening up the comments section of my article blog, so that folks can comment on the articles I’ve written. Spam has been the major problem in the past, but Bro. Eddie Watkins may have fixed that problem. I’ve sent an email to him regarding this problem. We shall see what happens.
What are my talents? Well, I can do a little preaching, lead singing, lead in prayer, conduct an adult Bible class, present a Bible lesson at the Veteran’s Home every 3rd Saturday morning, write a few Bible-related articles. And anything else that the elders need me to do.
