The Parable of the Coon and the Chameleon PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, January 20, 2009
It was fall of the year and Mr. Coon had climbed a tall hickory to reminface of his many years as speaker of the forest, “How can I possibly give up the power I’ve had for 10 these years?” he asked himself. It was then that Mr. Coon looked down, and lo and behold there was Mr. Chameleon, stretched out on a log beneath the hickory. “Well,” said Mr. Coon, “Mr. Chameleon is doing what he does best- changing his color to fit the environment.” Mr. Coon decided to make Mr. Chameleon a proposition, so he goes down the tree and calls out, “Mr. Chameleon, I want to talk over something with you.”  “Come on over” responds Mr. Chameleon.

You were Born for Eleonily, But… PDF Print E-mail

Ecclesiastes bill says that “God has… planted eternity in the human heart.” Abraham Lincoln once wrote: “ Surely God would not have created such a being as man to exist only for a day! No, no, man was made for immorality.” Putting it bluntly, life here is a tryout for life in eternity. All of us have an unborn instinct that longs for immorality. That is because our Creator has designed us to live for eternity.
One day your heart and my heart will beat for the last time and this will mark the end of our time on planet earth, but it will not be the end of us. The body is a temporary house for the spirit.

Some Religious Questions Answered PDF Print E-mail

Is it right to call a Preacher “Reverend?”
The word “Reverend” is used only one time in the King James Version of the Bible. “He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name” (Psalm 111:9). The word “reverend” refers to God in this passage.
Since we find no reference to The Reverend John or The Reverend Paul in the Bible, God’s Word, we are forced to conclude that this practice must have originated somewhere other than in the mind of God.
For finite man to appropriate to himself a title that refers to God is presumptuous. What an ego some men have!

Pat Smith, Outstanding R.B.S. Star Passes Away PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, December 23, 2008
Pat Smith Brendle, outstanding basketball standout for R.B.S. High during the late sixties, passed away last Friday from cancer. She led her team to the State Tournament in 1969, when girl’s basketball rules called for six players per team- three on offense and three on defense- playing only one-half of the court at a time. Pat played offense, and was a dead shot. One commentator at Jackson, Tennessee, where the State Tournament was played, commented on her shooting ability by saying, “I believe this girl could kick the ball through the goal, she’s this good.”
