It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they’ve been fooled.” (Mark Twain)
What a tragedy it is to believe in a big God and to settle for small dreams.
Don’t regret growing older. It’s a privilege denied to many.
When we water down the meaning of sin, we water down the sacrifice which paid for it.
The same disciples who couldn’t pray for one hour were able to fish all night. Your priorities matter!
A minister who cares about where you will spend eternity will preach not what you want to hear but what you need to hear.
It is not the will of God if it goes against the Word of God.
Truth does not mind being questioned. A lie does not like being challenged.
Your days are better when you focus on your blessings more than your problems.
It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible. (George Washington)
One day you will be just a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

Uncovering Three False Teachings Within the Church
#1 Prosperity Gospel
The Prosperity Gospel, also known as the Health and Wealth Gospel, teaches that God’s primary desire for believers is financial prosperity, physical health, and material success. It often suggests that you will be wealthy and free from suffering if you have enough faith. This teaching distorts the Biblical message of faith and misrepresents God’s intentions. It can lead to materialism, disappointment, and a shallow understanding of faith. The Bible does not guarantee material wealth and teaches that believers will face trials and sufferings.
#2 Universalism
Universalism is the belief that ultimately everyone will be saved and reconciled with God regardless of their faith or actions in this life. It suggests that there is no eternal punishment. Universalism contradicts the teachings and the need for faith in Jesus Christ for salvation and the concept of judgment and accountability. It undermines the significance of personal belief and repentance.
#3 Denial of the Trinity
Some reject the Trinity which teaches that God exists as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each is fully God yet one in essence. Denying the Trinity goes against centuries of Christian consensus and the clear teachings of the Bible. The Trinity is foundational in Christianity and essential to understanding the nature of God. —Mark Anthony Mitchell, Atlanta.

Following a recent Gallup study, it was concluded that “churches in America face no greater challenge than overcoming biblical illiteracy. Many Christians don’t know what they believe or why. Their faith is not rooted in Scripture. They revere the Bible but don’t read it. The Bible has not in any profound way penetrated our culture.” (Let God Speak,” Randy Frazee, Christian Standard, May/June 2024).

“Lord Jesus, thou who art the way, the truth, and the life, hear us as we pray for the truth that shall make men free. Teach us that liberty is not only to be loved but also to be lived. Liberty is too precious a thing to be buried in books. It costs too much to be hoarded. Make us see that our liberty is not the right to do as we please, but the opportunity to do what is right.” –Peter Marshall, before the U.S. Senate

Morbus Sabbaticus (Sunday Sickness) is a disease common to church members. Some of the symptoms are:
*It never interferes with the appetite.
*It never lasts more than 24 hours.
*No physician is ever called.
*It is contagious.
*It can prove fatal in the end—to the soul.
The attack usually comes on suddenly every Sunday. No ill effects are felt on Saturday night, and the patient awakes as usual, feeling fine. He (She) eats a hearty breakfast. About 9 a.m. the attack comes on, and it lasts until around noon. In the afternoon, the patient is much improved. He (She) may have another attack which lasts through the evening. The patient is able to go to work Monday, as usual.
