  • Paul’s writing to the Philippian’s said, I don’t want to be self righteous by obeying the law but I desire righteousness that comes by faith in Jesus Christ.

    First, let me say, I don’t believe Paul was saying we no longer need to live a righteous life. When we read Romans 6:1, Paul asked a question: “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?”

    Then Paul answers the question. “God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?”

  • Taxes can be a tricky thing. We all know they are a necessary evil. It becomes tricky to determine how much is necessary and how much is evil. Local taxes represent approximately 85 percent of the Carroll County Public Library’s budget. This is how we are able to open our doors every day to serve our community. For us, I put a lot more weight with the necessary part of taxes.

  • Christian Academy of Carrollton junior Nate Newcomer has become Carroll County’s latest Eagle Scout, joining recent local scouts Logan Underwood and Eric Popp as recipients of the award.
