The work of God

Have you ever known someone whose theology was spot on, but still there was something missing? They had right theology but wrong motives or attitudes. What does this make one? Well it simply makes them one with right theology but far from God. In the Old Testament, we see this example in the prophet Jonah (more concerned over a plant that dies than over 120,000 people's souls). In the New Testament, we see it in the attitude of the older brother to the prodigal son, who doesn't rejoice over his lost brother's return but, instead throws ...

Be strong and courageous

When Moses had finished giving these instructions to all the people of Israel, he said, "I am now 120 years old, and I am no longer able to lead you.

He will destroy the nations living there, and you will take possession of their land. Joshua will lead you across the river, just as the Lord promised... So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your ...

Good medical care not cheap

Dear Editor: I read in The Covington News that the Newton County Medical facility is in the black, making a profit and that's good news. Doesn't surprise me though. I walked in the Patient Emergency area the other day, after a home accident and walked out about three hours later after receiving excellent treatment and care. A few days later, I received a statement for $3,579.21. Just like freedom is not free, neither is good medical care.

GOP’s battle plans need a rework

Last week, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed cited the need to use hard and soft politics in governing the city. "We are making hard decisions again and again that allow us to show compassion," the Democrat said at a luncheon held by the Atlanta Press Club.
