EDITORIAL: Storm the Gates of Hell For Freedom To Worship

EDITORIAL - "On this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell will not overcome it," Matthew 16:18

Sunday November 5th was a day vomited up from the belly of hell itself. Satan paraded into the wide-open streets of Sutherland Springs, Texas and tried to annihilate a small God loving, Bible preaching church. He literally stormed into that church and tried to obliterate that congregation. In effect that same enemy in so many ways shook his fist and aimed his fiery gun of extinction at your church, your pulpit, your ministry and all you have ever wanted to do and be for Jesus Christ.

In every way that Sunday our enemy wanted to end the existence of that First Baptist Church and the precious people of that church.  However, he was also attempting to end your church. Satan showed his cruelty again. He hates babies, little children and grandmothers. He hates family and preachers of the gospel. He hates the message of the gospel and what Christianity is doing in saving souls and changing people. 

EDITORIAL: Sutherland Springs, Church Is Not Safe Anymore

EDITORIAL - Our hearts go out to the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The First Baptist Church of this town and the entire community was ambushed in what resulted as the worst mass shooting in Texas history. Twenty-six people are dead and many others are currently fighting for their lives in intensive care. This is heart crushing for this Texas community and all of America as we must conclude no place is safe in America anymore.

My hometown church in Inez, Kentucky kept the backdoor of the church unlocked during most of my high school years. The church was a place where anyone could enter and pray, and seek refuge from the problems of the world.

EDITORIAL: How to Know If You Are Alive

EDITORIAL - We applaud people who feel like doing something.  In an age where so many people spend so much time sitting or who are doing nothing let's celebrate the people who are doing something. Celebrate their living.

I've always been blessed with energy. Energy is a good asset. As a young adult growing up I wanted to be in the middle of whatever was going on.  I always enjoyed playing sports, swimming in the lake or creek, riding a bicycle for miles or being in the middle of the dance floor. I've always enjoyed movement.

EDITORIAL: Prevention Requires a Lot of Effort

EDITORIAL - Most of us believe in prevention but we don't always practice it. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure we've heard before. The best way to keep a car healthy is faithful service. Changing the oil, taking care of the transmission and replacing parts are all part of the long term game.

Our bodies are the same way. A friend of mine joked at 76, "If I had known I would live this long I would have taken better care of myself." The problem is he died at about 77 and spent the last few years of his life not walking much due to his thirty plus years of smoking cigarettes that had devastated his lungs.

EDITORIAL: America's Pain Could Be Yours Tomorrow

EDITORIAL - Northern California is suffering with some of the worse fires in that state's history. Twenty-three people have been reportedly killed with at least 285 people reported missing. Communities and over 170,000 acres have been burned. At this moment the fires are not close to being contained with several very trying days ahead for sleep-deprived firefighters.

Over 8,000 firefighters have been reported to be fighting the deadly fire engulfing Napa Valley, wineries, vineyards and communities. Over 20,000 people have been ordered to evacuate including the city of Calistoga and parts of Geyserville. Media clips of horror stricken families losing their homes to this blazing inferno have been heart wrenching.
