  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/2nd Timothy 2: 20-21
    Wednesday, September 28, 2016 6:00 PM In this epistle Paul is addressing two issues that especially challenge the faith of Christians and exposes the faith of some as spurious. One is suffering. The other is false teaching. Paul’s fundamental teaching is that there will always be obstacles to be overcome by Christians, but the obstacles in no way change the truth of the gospel. Therefore, the best antidote to the challenges is to know the gospel well and live by it.

  • DUNCAN/“Life Isn’t Stuff   (So Don’t Worship Stuff)”
    Wednesday, September 28, 2016 6:00 PM Turn in your Bible to Luke 12:13-21. This is a passage in which Jesus speaks one of His most famous parables, and it has to do with covetousness. As you begin to think now about why Jesus would address covetousness with his relatively poor disciples, there are several things to bear in mind. First, covetousness is a very subtle sin and it is often very difficult to detect in ourselves, yet I don't know of a sin more pervasive than covetousness. Secondly, covetousness is a dangerous sin because it tempts us to hypocrisy. We say that our hearts are set on things above, when in fact our desires are set on things below. It is also dangerous because it's an enemy to grace. When our hearts are set on what we don't have but what we want, it diminishes our joy in that which really matters.

  • Wednesday, September 28, 2016 6:00 PM The Charlotte rioters didn’t know whether the controversial police shooting of Keith Scott was justified or not, and didn’t care.

    They worked their mayhem — trashing businesses and injuring cops, with one protester killed in the disorder — before anything meaningful could be ascertained about the case except that the cops said Scott had a gun and his family said he didn’t.

  • CALABRIA/Repeal Dodd-Frank
    Wednesday, September 28, 2016 6:00 PM 
    After the bank bailouts of 2008, the public was promised “never again.” Unfortunately the same congressional architects of that bailout, Sen. Chris Dodd and Rep. Barney Frank, enacted legislation giving regulators the permanent option of bailouts, as enshrined in the Dodd-Frank Act.

    It is time for Congress to deliver on the “no bailout” promise. And Rep. Jeb Hensarling has a plan to do just that in his Financial Choice Act.

  • BROOKS/The Clinton calendar
    Wednesday, September 28, 2016 6:00 PM Hillary Clinton made a very pertinent comment recently: “‘Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?’ you might ask.”

    Indeed we might!

    Clinton is running against a man whose approval ratings are under 40 percent and his disapproval rating is the highest of any candidate in American history. Only 38 percent of Americans think Donald Trump is even qualified to be president, according to a Quinnipiac survey.

  • Wednesday, September 28, 2016 6:00 PM So, LSU fired Les Miles Sunday and elevated Ed Orgeron to the position of interim head football coach in Baton Rouge.

    We can argue the wisdom of the first half of those two moves all day. LSU, a school famously strapped for cash these days, will pay Miles $10 million not to coach. But in my opinion the decision to elevate Orgeron, the former Ole Miss head coach, makes sense. Orgeron's job will be to keep the seat warm and to make sure recruiting stays on course. He can do that. He proved it at Southern Cal.
