YOU SHALL NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS- EXODUS 20:16

      I have noticed how “enthusiastic” many are in defending their political favorites. Please realize that much that is posted on facebook is exagerrated.  Please consider that neither the Democrats or Republicans are interested in furthering the message of Jesus Christ! Wealthy, dishonest men (and women) are running our wonderful country. Our place as Christians is to live right, pray hard and glorify our saviour.

     I am concerned over the interest of  Christians (many are ministers) to promote use of handguns. I respect your right to own a weapon but your priority is to preach and live the gospel. Fighting for gun rights is out of place in the pulpit.

     Be truthful when you discuss the sins of others….we know that Joe Paterno, the denver shooter, Jason Kidd….and many others who have erred are guilty but limit your facts to what is known. Don’t exagerrate! And, honestly, should we enjoy the sin of others so much?

     Don’t misrepresent the truth…..the restoration movement came about in the early 1800’s when men from denominations chose to attempt to go back to the Bible. Good men! Campbell (Presbyterian), Smith (Methodist), Smith (Baptist) and others “restored” the church as best they could. It is a good thing that a few people in middle America (Kentucky) tried to go back to the basics. They were not the first to make this attempt and won’t be the last.

     We state that we speak where the bible speaks and are silent where it is silent….then we debate, disfellowship and disrespect other believers who don’t do things the way we do. We are not the judge and we are not the only ones who do things right (or wrong).

      Jesus said the world would know we are Christians by the way we love one another……..love starts with accuracy which is a product of truth.
