“The Scriptures speak of how the people of God must view sin. Sin is a terrible evil. It woos, it traps, it kisses, and then it kills. Sin whispers that it’s a friend till in the end it slaughters with a death-blow.

Organized Sports on Sundays? – a timely question with a thoughtful answer. Here’s a sample: “Giving up worship for sports is not an option for Christians. In fact, to miss worship because of sports is positively wicked. Your children will not likely be converted on the field or on the court or on the diamond.

They are in the place that shapes their living for the week, week after week, year after year, decade after decade.”
