Today, we honor our veterans and their families for their sacrifices and unwavering dedication to our country. Our troops who wear the uniform represent the best, and I mean the very best, our country has to offer. It is because of their service that we enjoy the freedom that comes with bein…

The Bible says, “O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But …

I am often asked by my fellow ministers why I do what I do. My answer is simple:"I have a different assignment." For me, the fundamental purpose of life is to grow, to expand, and to make progress. Growth means progress. To grow one must make choices, and choices involve risks. We must alway…

Visiting with Dr. Ted Geltner and Valdosta State University students interested in a career in journalism this past week was a refreshing reminder about how important solid, credible, responsible journalism is to a community.

When you don’t teach a people about their complete history and greatness, you make them incompetent and unable to fulfill the full potential and plan for their future as a culture. 

There is a point one reaches in life when you not only realize time does not pass as slowly as it once did but time is going to keep speeding up. I hit that point a few years ago and the impending holidays drive it home.

Mankind worships many things and persons. The list is endless of the gods mankind has idolized, given dignity to, and even died for.

The Bible says, “A wise man’s heart is at his right hand; but a fool’s heart at his left. Yea also, when he that is a fool walketh by the way, his wisdom faileth him, and he saith to every one that he is a fool” (Ecc.10:2,3).
