Former President Jimmy Carter worships in a baptist church in Plains, Georgia. He regularly teaches in the Sunday school. He still does all the things that everyone else does. In that church President Carter is just plain Jimmy and he is there not to be honored as a past President of the United States but is there to worship and bow down before the one true God. In that hour of worship he is just like everybody else. Jimmy Carter understands that the foundation of his very life rests not in his accomplishments but in the love of God. -- Watson
Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff. The first generation liberated from Egypt died in the desert because they didn’t learn. And when the people pointed with oohs and ahhs towards current events, Jesus asked them to learn from the past to recognize that some things are not as significant as the eternal choices.
The government has finally woken up to the fact that the health of our children in this country is threatened by their food. For two generations, since World War II, food has become increasingly processed and the era of the fast food meal is well and truly with us.
Karen hates church. She feels it's a place where people are brainwashed. She thinks the people who go to church are weak, looking for a crutch in sermons that tell them how to behave. Karen clearly has an issue with established religion.
