From the Pastor's Heart
Hello and blessings.. I know this is not exactly what a blog is for but I am going to use it for this purpose anyway. I just got back from Van talking to some of the relief organizers. They feel like all is taken care of as far as food is concerned until next week. I will be in contact with them while I am out of town and relay updates to Jennifer. She will text or I will blog information. I found the same in Van that we have found in other places. Everyone is there right now helping but most will only stay a few days or a week. That is when we have moved in when we went to Joplin and Moore, after disasters had hit there. I will keep you posted and until we have exact plans just keep the people of Van in your prayers. For those who were not at our meeting about the use of the concession trailer but are interested in helping please let me know you want to be a part of the Disaster Relief Team. May God bless each of you!!
Ok here we go with our blog. My son B.J. has been posting his thoughts on a blog page for quite some time. I am excited about beginning this.
We are living in what must be the "last days". Sin is rampant and now we have the Presbyterian Denomination saying that God does not know what is best for mankind (that He created). It is now ok in their constitution for homosexual marriage. Really...a church? Oh I know there are many that think the church should just stay out of the debate and go along with whatever people want to do. There will be the intellectual arguments that will try and explain how God is loving and that means that He will simply look away when we choose to violate His Word. God is loving!! God is love! That is why He has called us out of lives of sin, and given us redemption through His Son Jesus. His Word calls for Holiness, and there can be no Holiness without honoring His Word. How much of the Bible would be left if we tore out the pages that deal with the sins we don't want to turn away from? Wrong is wrong and sin is sin, and it is time we quit worrying about being politically incorrect and start calling sin what it is. Homosexuality is a sin. It is not the only sin, but it is sin.
