Looking to help out the State of South Carolina?

Looking to help out the people of South Carolina physically and spiritually? The Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Effort is the best way that I personally know of. I’m a personal supporter, and the congregation that I’m a member of supports the work as well. The relief effort has already made several trips to the area and there’s no doubt that they will be going back again. If you’re interested, you can check out the provided links below for more information:

  • Here’s a link to the Informational Video on YouTube that can be viewed below this list. (The video is slightly dated, but only in years and by no means in work. This video illustrates a few of the many, many times that the Nashville area media has covered the response of the relief effort, and it demonstrates how the effort works with local congregations so the ultimate glory goes to God through the local church and not a secular organization.)

6-22-2015 Seeking Justice

21-year-old Dylan Roof sat in an hour-long Bible study in Charleston, South Carolina, then slaughtered 9 people. He is yet another mass murderer from a broken home that left him feeling alienated. Speaking of God’s Law through Moses, Jesus Christ said, “the weightier matters of the law: [were] justice and mercy and faith” (Matthew 23:23 NKJV). “Justice” is an even application of law upon all. “You shall not pervert justice; you shall not show partiality, nor take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous” (Deuteronomy 16:19 NKJV). In Jesus’ “humiliation His justice was taken away” (Acts 8:33 NKJV), by the street crowd shouting, “Crucify Him, crucify Him!” (Luke 23:21 NKJV). Lawless lynch mobs demand “justice” when laws and righteous judgment should prevail.
