Dad’s Do You Want Your Kids to Be Just Like You? by Pastor Steve Williams should make you think!

Berry Chapel Baptist Church  Dad’s, Do You Want Your Kids to Be Just Like You? By Pastor Steve Williams Mitchell County A few days ago, a good friend of mine named Rocky Buchanan, in my church introduced me to a song and a video by Country singer Rodney Adkins which is several years old. Now before you turn off what I’m fixing to share because you say I only listen to Christian Music, I challenge you to read the rest of the article, because I believe you will be blessed as I was blessed by listening to the song....

Leaving a Legacy by Pastor Rick Mercer looks at Father’s Day a whole new way!

Morganton Seventh Day Adventist Church Leaving a Legacy By Pastor Rick Mercer Burke County Oswald Glait repeatedly risked his life for Bible truths.  Authorities captured him in 1545 while he was on an evangelistic mission in central Europe.  He spent a year and six weeks in jail, until awakened at midnight by the thunderous footsteps of soldiers marching down the hall.  The mercenaries bound him hand and foot, dragged him through the city, and cast him into the Danube.  They little realized that the truth he gave his life for, like ripples created by a rock thrown into a...

Looking Back at a Good Harvest: A Father’s Father by Jacob Willis will touch your heart!

Daddy, This is the Life by Pastor Chris Rathbone is just in time for Father’s Day

Mine Creek Baptist Church Daddy, this is the life… By Pastor Chris Rathbone Mitchell County Sometimes there are moments in our lives that God uses to speak to us. Many of these instances are to remind us of what the important things in life are all about. About couple of years ago I had lifted a riding mower up to work on the blades and had strained my back. (We do these things and then our body tells us a couple of days later that we shouldn’t have.) I had a lot of reading to finish for a couple...

I am certain that the Blue Ridge Christian News is a credible and respected news outlet. However it is disturbing that on it's July issue it quotes George Washington "It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the bible" . I am also certain that most Americans respect and admire Washington's accomplishments. BUT, the separation between the church and state must be maintained to ensure integrity of government.
