"The face of sin today often wears the mask of tolerance. Do not be deceived; behind that facade is heartache, unhappiness and pain. .. YOU be the one to make a stand for right, even if you stand alone. Have the moral courage to be a light for others to follow."
“Jesus also said that we ought to be friendly with each other. He said, “A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.” (john 13:34). Because the creator recognized love & friendship as one of our needs, he gave us a natural, instinctive desire to try to satisfy it. That is, everyone hungers for appreciation. We have a natural need to be loved, and everyone wants to feel that his own life is worthwhile. One of the most devastating of all human emotions is the sense of being alone, of being unloved, and of being unimportant. The feeling of not being wanted, of not being worthy, of not being important is causing far too much distress in our civilization and among our church membership. Author: Sterling W.

We need each other. This means that we should bring everyone into full church membership and into full church fellowship & activity. The fact that the Lord has told us to do it is an indication that he thinks we can do it if we will. We might inquire of ourselves why we don’t.”
