  • The nation, children are contending for the faith

    I am greatly concerned for our nation, our communities and our way of life. In today’s world, there is a tremendous lack of direction, a lack of truth and Godly respect.

    This all can be traced back to when our nation began to wander from the truth, direction and respect from God’s word.  Today we live in a society that puts little to no value on the word of God. On top of that, many today believe that it’s just a book that’s out-of-date, irrelevant to today’s culture, or just a book full of ancient stories.
