Has Your Church Changed?

Has your Church stopped singing the Old Hymns? Have they quit using the Bible you grew up with? Do they preach the whole counsel of God, or just the pleasant parts? Sadly many Churches have changed, and NOT FOR THE BETTER. They have become nothing more than worldly entertainment to get a crowd. There is no preaching against sin, nothing about repentance…

Apocalypse in 2012? It Could Happen

When you hear the word APOCALYPSE, what comes to your mind; a Hollywood Movie, a world wide cataclysm, ancient Mayans, or nothing in particular? Perhaps some would be Biblically literate enough to think about the last book of the Holy Bible, called “The Revelation,” or sometimes called “The Apocalypse.” It is so called because our English word “APOCALYPSE” is from a Greek…

Exemption from arbitrary control; independence, civil liberty. 3. The state of being FREE.” Freedom means that one is not in bondage, not a slave to anyone or any thing. Our great nation was founded upon…

WHY I Do Not Celebrate Easter

The title of this article may shock many who read it. Some may presume that I am just being deliberately contrary or divisive. Dear Friend, this is not the case. My purpose is to defend the truth of God. When God’s truth is diluted or lost, then men are left without hope. Allow me to explain why I do not celebrate “Easter,”…

Will 2017 Be YOUR Last?

I am not a prophet and do not know the future for you nor for myself. But it is certain that many who receive this paper will not be alive on January 1, 2018. This past year I witnessed as three persons passed into eternity. I presided over six funerals, including my own dear mother, and attended two others. Eight funerals in…

We Love Our Roman Catholic Neighbors

To those who were offended by our “Special Edition” of the Harmony Baptist Herald, with the article entitled “5 Questions Every Roman Catholic Must Correctly Answer or Lose His Immortal Soul,” it was never our intention to offend or make anyone think that we do not love those blinded by the religion of men. It was our hope that the provocative title…
