The Pastor's Pen
The United States of America is in a serious moral & religious decline. The Puritans came to America seeking religious freedom & wanted to build a Godly Society. Our Founding Fathers came to America seeking political freedom & wanted to establish a God-Fearing Society. But a lot of people in America today want financial freedom & want to live in a God-Less Society.
We have removed the 10 Commandments from our Courtrooms & Classrooms; Commandments upon which our Laws are based. We have legalized Abortion, calling it Free Choice. We have approved Gay Marriages, deeming it an Alternative Lifestyle. If something doesn’t change, God will have to apologize to Sodom & Gomorrah for not destroying the United States.
We sing, “God Bless America.” Why should He? We pledge to the Flag, “One Nation, under God.” Are we 1 Nation under God, or a nation without God? We put “In God we Trust” on our money. Do we? God offers Hope for our Troubled Nation.
Hosea says, “Come, let us return to the Lord; for He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken us, but He will bind us up.” (Hos 6:1) Jesus said, “Remember, Repent & Return.” (Rev 2:5) “If My people, which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My Face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chron 7:14) God will Pardon, Cleanse & Revive us, if we Turn Back to Him. What are we waiting for? It’s Time to Turn Back to God, back to the Bible & back to the 10 Commandments.We need to Pray; pray for our Country, Congress & the Capitol & we need to take a Stand for what we believe in. I Believe we are “One Nation under God,” “In God, I still Trust” & sing “God Bless America.

The music of our God is a universal language. It can help us to voice our deepest desires, to move our hearts to repentance, help us to pray when we don’t know how and gives us a wonderful avenue to worship our God. As we celebrate the 4th of July let us, as God’s children, lift our voices the highest in praise because our Lord has given us a song that even the angels cannot sing…the ultimate song of freedom, the SONG OF THE REDEEMED! OH how our God has blessed and provided us with beautiful music!
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome another new choir member. We are certainly blessed to have Anna Entwistle singing with us! I will have to say that she is now an official member of the choir since she has experienced the mischievousness’ of the alto and tenor sections. Don’t worry, Anna, the rest of us choir members are standing beside you all the way!
In July we will have a special song celebrating the 4th of July. Although the choir has sung this particular anthem before, we all feel it is well worth singing again and again. Also, we have a 5th Sunday in July so there will be a service full of singing. Come join us as we worship our Lord through music.I pray each of you will have a happy Fourth of July and that each of us will sing loud and proud of the freedom that we have been given for all eternity through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Until we meet again…SING LOUD & PROUD THE SONG OF FREEDOM…THE SONG OF THE REDEEMED! J
