It’s been an unusually bad week for crime in Ridgeland with two armed robberies on Monday and what appears to be a “targeted’ shooting death in a park Tuesday evening — all within about 24 hours.
  • Please turn to Genesis 48:1-22. Two overarching purposes in God’s providence are apparent in the story of Joseph. First, the story of Joseph tells us how Israel ended up in Egypt so that Genesis 15:13-14 would be fulfilled. Second, Joseph’s story tells us how God would make Israel into a great nation so that Genesis 12:1-2 would be fulfilled.
  • The gospel answers the question of how can sinful souls be made right with God. Our souls were created for excellence; for communion with God. Sin causes us to betray our own souls, to seek pleasure in base lusts rather than in knowing God. Sin is a deceptive power, promising good but delivering destruction.
  • President Donald Trump cannot want war with Iran. 
  • If there is one thing you learn about at Oberlin College, the notoriously progressive liberal arts college, it is surely privilege: white privilege, hetero privilege, gender privilege, you name it. 
  • DUNCAN/The land of Goshen
    Please turn to Genesis 47:1-31. This passage can easily be divided into five scenes. First, in verses 1-6, Pharaoh interviews five of Jacob’s sons. Next, in verses 7-10, Pharaoh interviews Jacob and receives his blessing. T

  • BUCHANAN/American values
    “My religion defines who I am. And I’ve been a practicing Catholic my whole life,” said Vice President Joe Biden in 2012. “I accept my church’s position on abortion as ... doctrine. Life begins at conception. ... I just refuse to impose that on others.”
  • LOWRY/CEOs for abortion
    Clarity of thought and expression about moral issues is not a core competency of CEOs.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 2:13-15
    It is hard for us to even imagine the value of our souls. Our lives are like a mist, a vapor that passes away very quickly. We tend to barely consider our days or what life is. The Bible tells us that true life is to know God, and we can only know him through Christ. Because of sin, we don’t know God naturally. We think wrongly about ourselves and him. This passage gives us clarity.
