Morganton Baptist Church Perilous Times By Pastor Dan Qurollo Burke County The Bible perfectly describes the times in which we live as being “perilous times.” Each day we turn on the news, it seems as though the threats of war continue to rise.

They want us to think that our founding fathers wanted God, The Holy Bible, and Jesus completely left out of the public and political square. They want us to believe that these men had no moral basis or compass on which they founded this great nation known as the United States of America. They attempt to justify certain “rights” or...Read More
Lana’s Lines Oh, Say Can You See? By Lana Ellis Tennessee For twenty-five exhausting hours Baltimore’s Fort McHenry was bombarded by the greatest naval power in the world. About eight miles away a thirty-five year old lawyer boarded an enemy ship to negotiate the release of his friend who had been taken prisoner. Even after a successful release negotiation had been reached the two men could not leave the ship due to the intense raging battle.
