10-23-2017 Scared, Of What?

What scares you this time of the year? Is it houses haunted by fake “ghosts and goblins?” Or is it sights and sounds that are not human and hard to identify? Or is it make-believe “zombies,” “vampires,” or “werewolves?” The only time dead people walked the earth again was when Jesus Christ died on the cross, an earthquake opened graves, “and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many” (Matthew 27:52-53 NKJV). They proved Jesus was raised from the dead, not that we should fear the night. If you obey God, then “When you lie down, you will not be afraid; Yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet” (Proverbs 3:24 NKJV).

Anne Rice – JAM

Millions of novels have been sold under the name of author Anne Rice. She is best known for writing books about vampires. Rice made the ABC evening News last month by declaring that she was abandoning Christianity. On her Facebook page she said, quote, “I quit being a Christian. I’m out!” Why? Rice says she is fed up with Christianity being, quote: anti-gay, anti-feminist, anti-artificial birth control, anti-Democrat, anti-secular humanism, anti-science and anti-life. Talk about a mixed bag; this is it! It appears she jumped on her horse and rode off in ten different directions. But in the final analysis the problem lies with who has authority to establish boundaries – Rice, churches or God? God’s word alone should guide us. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
