IS SMOKING MARIJUANA OK? – by bill keller

imageA question I get at least once a day and many times a week on my television program is, “Is it OK to smoke marijuana?” The person asking the question always throws in that marijuana comes from God and that makes it all right. There are also many websites that give people what they think is Biblical support that smoking marijuana is acceptable for a Christian. Before I deal with this issue in more depth, let me answer the question first. NO! Letter N. Letter O. NO!

Why no? Let’s start first with the fact it is ILLEGAL for most of us! You really don’t need any other reason. However, putting that fact to the side, let’s deal with the argument that it is OK to smoke pot since it is a creation of God. Yes, God did create the plant marijuana comes from. However, God NEVER intended you to dry the plant out, go to 7-11 and buy a pack of Zig Zags, crumble the
dried plant in the rolling paper, roll it up and smoke it. That my friend is a perverted use of God’s creation.

WHEN, WHERE, AND WHYS – by judy parker

John 14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Whens, Wheres, and Whys

I went along for a ride to a junk yard the other day.
Along for a ride to a junk yard, I was bored, what can I say?
There were parts to be picked up I was told.

Was it a carburetor, alternator, or radiator waiting to be sold?

Can’t remember, some type of ator for sure I recall.
As long as it wasn’t an alligator I was in it for the long haul.
We rode past horses, cows, and silos.
Big curves and shaky bridges, ups-downs, highs-lows.

WILLETTA PILCHER (August 26, 1934 – November 20, 2014)

60th anniversary pic

Many of you know Willetta through her writings.  I myself found myself fascinated with her wisdom and knowledge and got to know her only in the past three years.  Yesterday evening (November 20, 2014), she went to sleep, and then went home to be with the Lord.  Her family noted that this is the way she wanted to go.

In my last conversation with her, among the advice she was giving me, she longed to go home.  She wondered why the Lord would keep her here on this earth so long, especially when she thought her work was complete.  I am happy for her, and glad she can walk again, and can finally be in heaven.

This website was set up by her to continue to run and post articles long after she passed.  She wanted to leave a legacy.  She has.

I will miss her, but her words will continue on.

WORK HARD *

Pr 14:23 All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.

For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “If a man will not work, he shall not eat.” We hear that some among you are idle. They are not busy; they are busybodies. Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the bread they eat. — 2 Thessalonians 3:10-12 NIV

The way of the slothful man is as an hedge of thorns: but the way of the
righteous is made plain. — Proverbs 15:19 KJV

Here is what I have seen to be good and fitting: to eat, to drink and enjoy oneself in all one’s labor in which he toils under the sun during the few years of his life which God has given him; for this is his reward.

Furthermore, as for every man to whom God has given riches and wealth, He has also empowered him to eat from them and to receive his reward and rejoice in his labor; this is the gift of God.
— Ecclesiastes 5:18,19 NASB

GOD’S DISCIPLINE *

image
[url=http://www.christart.com/]ChristArt – Christian Clipart[/url]
Hebrews 12:5-8 And you have forgotten that word of encouragement that addresses you as sons: “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son.” Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline), then you are illegitimate children and not true sons.

CONVERSATION – by pastor bill

image Baxter was in hurry to get dressed — this was going to be his first time to go to Sunday school. Baxter’s mom and dad did not raise him in church but his best friend Joey was raised in a Christian home.

Joey’s Sunday School class was challenged to being a friend to class this Sunday to hear all about Jesus.

Joey and his parents arrived on time to pick up Baxter who was all smiles. As they drove the 20 minutes to church, Joey talked non-stop about his friends in class, his teacher and Jesus.

TELL ME ANOTHER STORY DAD – by mark merrill

imageYou know what story my kids love to hear the most? Believe it or not, it’s the stories of when my wife and I were children. They love to hear about things I did when I was young… like the time I got so homesick at camp that I wrote home every day and begged my parents to get me out of there! I think they like these stories so much because, in a way, they get to relate to their parents as children.

So think about your own childhood. What funny stories do you have to share about growing up? By sharing your memories, you’ll make new ones with your own kids.

Give you children a fun quiz this week: How well do you know your parents?
Remember, your family first.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY

This made me smile.

“Live happily with the woman you love through all the meaningless days of life that God has given you under the sun. The wife God gives you is your reward for all your earthly toil.”‭ ~Ecclesiastes‬ ‭9‬:‭9‬ (NLT)

If you think about your spouse as a reward, rather than a millstone, how much better would he/she respond to you? Practice positive thoughts.
