Take Up Your Cross January 30th 2015

Are you living under the weak auspices of self-governing; or living in submission to the supernatural power and authority of God? 

For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. (Romans 10:3 KJV)

The Bible tells us righteousness comes from God.  Apart from Him there is not one ounce of goodness found in man.  Since the entrance of sin into this world mankind is naturally ...

Discrimination Is Nothing New

“Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.” (John 4:9 KJV)

The Jews and the Samaritans were living in opposition and hatred towards each other.  This tension was a mix of religious, social, and territorial anger and disdain for one another.  This contempt and social shunning escalated into what would be considered ...
