The question is often asked: “Why is unbelief such a big deal? Why would someone’s failure to believe in Jesus Christ lead to eternal damnation?”
It isn’t uncommon to hear something like this: “Sally is a really nice person. She’s faithful to her husband. She is a wonderful mother to her children. She doesn’t use profane language. She’s never committed a crime. She’s a good neighbor. She’s involved in her community. She’s really great to be around. But she’s just not very religious.

C.S. Lewis once stated,
“There is no neutral ground in the universe; every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God and counter-claimed by Satan.”
Most Christians are not shocked at the cultural battles we are facing today, but the number of fronts can seem daunting. Enemies of God are using every possible crisis to gain power – and they have – and we have been in a purposeful state of perpetual conflict as a result.

After the cancelled show in 2020, the Farm Progress Show is back for 2021 in Decatur, Illinois. The show was Tuesday, August 31 through Thursday, September 2, 2021. The Fellowship of Christian Farmers had a large tent on the south end of the show grounds. Weather for the 3 day show was about as good as it gets in central Illinois in late August, with temps in the upper 70s.

Just saw on the news where the world champion tongue-twister was arrested. I hope they give the guy a tough sentence.
My wife and I took a drive to Dixon, Illinois last week. If you like corn and bean fields, which I do, it’s a very beautiful drive.

Recently, I was reading a story about a man in his 20’s who asked one of his elder mentors, “What would you say to your 30-year-old self if you could talk to him?”
Prayer Guide – September, 2021
Consequently, you (Gentiles) are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow
citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, (Ephesians
2:19). Paul is reassuring the Gentiles – non Jews – they were also able to
have Salvation through Jesus. We were all aliens, no matter if we had
the most devout parents and grandparents. ALL we need do is believe
in our hearts and profess with our mouths that Jesus Christ is Lord of
all and make Him Lord of our hearts and lives

Here we are back in full swing again. Fall sports are back on and the summer heat did not miss a beat. When I was in high school we had to run the mile in 6 minutes or less. I have always been a slow runner. When I played baseball, my “friends” made fun of me and told me to get the plow out of the ground as I ran to first base.

I kind of left you hanging on the house we were working on in anticipation of members of our family moving in. I’m happy to say, they are all moved in. The house had a total inside makeover and is the happy home of their little family. I took it upon myself to find a little history on the previous owners. What I discovered was that the owner before them, was born in the house. He and his wife had four children. She was the girl next door and they ended up with her farm and his. If those newly-painted walls could talk, they’d have some pretty great stories to tell, I’m sure. So it’s nice to know it’s home to a family again.

The great thing about living in a small town is that when you don’t know what you’re doing, someone else does.
