I won't judge others for smoking, drinking or other habits-but it doesn't lead people closer to Christ-why should I be part of it? Mt.6:33!
Habits-If you put anything before God, it puts distance between you & God. Only fence-sitters fight over which side they're on-others know.
Rt @Rob Dempsey, HIS Radio- 5.8 magnitude earth quake felt in DC not to long ago. My daughter felt it Mauldin, SC. You?/ We did in Gastonia!

Never served; my family have. Military retirement is not Entitlement, it is earned in years of service! Now Congress-they have entitlement!
RT @OsChambers– We follow our leaders until we get to the place where we depend on Christ alone- then we can lead others to follow Christ. (OK- It is Oswald, but it’s REALLY GOOD!)
The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them!(Mark Twain)
I had a stark contrast today- Elevation baptized 1420+ today-20 x avg. church's attendance! Whatever "God is doing"4u-is it producing fruit?

‎"Take this rule: whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, or takes off your relish of spiritual things; in short, whatever increases the strength and authority of your body over your mind, that thing is sin to you, however innocent it may be in itself."-Susanna Wesley (Letter, June 8, 1725)
I love you people- but please GET SOMEONE ELSE TO TAKE YOUR FACEBOOK PICTURE- it looks bad to have you holding your phone up to the mirror!
Happy First Day of School, peeps! Praying for you to be light in the darkness this year!
WAIT! Some think there's something more valuable to do with your Saturday night & Sunday than to rest, get up to learn of & worship God with Godly people- THERE'S NOT! Do what you need to tonight, but in thanks for life & salvation, get up & get to a Bible-preaching, people-loving, God-honoring reaching out church tomorrow! And if you don't have one, come to www.EastsideNC.org! Sunday School 9:45, Worship 10:50!

RT Vincent Hocutt - Ever wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone? We carried it in our purse. We flipped through it throughout the day. We went home to get it if we forgot it. We received messages from the text. We couldn't live without it. We gave it to kids as gifts. We used it in case of emergency. One more thing, it would never be disconnected. Jesus has already paid the bill. :)

Former All-Pro fullback Le'Ron McClain has agreed to a one-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs, giving the defending AFC West champs a short-yardage option to go with a talented group of speedy running backs.
I grew up in Birmingham, where we made a place for everyone (admittedly with some help). But black, white, Protestant, Catholic, Jew, and even atheists, agnostics & Auburn fans are welcome.
So right here, I stand up and say that I don't approve of illegal immigration, but I also think any group of people ought to have a chance to make their way in the land of the free and the home of the brave- unless that's not who we are still… This is what I understand about 'illegal' blog.al.com - Congratulations, Alabama. Now we're all godless, unAmerican, and less enlightened than the authors of Alabama's racist constitution.
I am so proud of Sarah Bell today! She was so brave and strong after her surgery! She has a cough, and even though one came out, still has one of her front teeth very loose, and her throat hurts. She and Teresa Smith Bell are sleeping together in the recliner tonight, but she's been a trooper! Please continue to pray for us- they say Friday & Saturday will be worst-ugh!
Stephen Andrew Bell got his acoustic guitar for an early birthday present, thanks to Aunt Phyllis Akers!
The Daniel Plan - Get Rid of Acne- saddleback.com- In a 1971 article published in American Family Physician we see a quote, “Patients are deluded into thinking that their health can somehow be mysteriously harmed by something in their diet.” That’s not all.
