So your name is on the Ashley Madison list…

By now we’ve all heard about the Ashley Madison list. That website is one of the most blatant attacks on marriage, offering “guaranteed affairs or your money back” because “life is short you should have an affair.” I soon realized Josh Duggar was not the only one on this scandalous list. It wasn’t long before you could search the millions of names for those in your own city. I’ve never read the list, searched for names, and don’t plan on it.

Afraid of God?

Is God angry with you? Is he watching and waiting for an occasion to punish you? Many have spent their entire lives afraid of God, afraid to approach him. God has gone to great lengths to show us that he’s not mad at us.

God wants to use you

“For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God. But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, so that, just as it is written, ‘Let him who boasts, boast in the Lord’.” 1 Corinthians 1:26-31 New American Standard Bible.

A more healthy you

Did you know that the word “stressed” spelled backwards is “desserts”? That seems like a holy combination. I mean, who doesn’t like desserts? But sometimes desserts don’t like us when it comes to the extra calories and pounds they can produce. Now, there’s nothing wrong with desserts in moderation and proper portions but I want to discuss a more healthy you - and that involves more than limiting the number of banana puddings and DQ Blizzards you eat.

Prayer rally draws crowd

Approximately 100 people gathered Aug. 1 for Prayer Rally 2015 at the Pine Bluff Civic Center steps. The city-wide prayer rally was the vision given to Saint Mary Harris, apostle/senior pastor of House of Bread Deliverance Church at Pine Bluff.

A tragic Wednesday in Charleston

Disbelief, shock, denial, heaviness, confusion, mourning - those were some of the words I felt deeply as I first heard of the tragic murders of nine innocent Christians who worshipped at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina this past Wednesday night.

A faithful steward

Have you ever been asked to babysit? What about house sit? Then you’ve been a steward. If you’ve ever taken care of anything that is someone else’s then you have been a steward. We all are stewards of everything we “own.”
