     CC: In answering the question let me begin with these observations:
        - In the past ten years some 37,000 American churches closed their doors.

It is significant that in the Old Testament the word “faith” appears only two times, Deuteronomy 32:20, “children in whom is no faith,” and Habakkuk 2:4, “the just shall live by his faith”. (NKJ) These represent the two extremes regarding faith. Beyond that, the Old Testament is strangely silent about spiritual-faith. Even so, the New Testament book of Hebrews, chapter 11, speaks of faith 26 times in acknowledging the faithfulness of ...

Years ago on a flight out of West Palm Beach, Florida, we had just become airborne over the ocean when a boy sitting next to the window grabbed my arm. "Look out there!," he spoke, "Look!" What I saw was one of the most magnificent sights of my life. Reaching down to the surface of the ocean and rising overhead as far as I could see was the full, unbroken circle of a rainbow. The color was indescribably brilliant with the lower part of the r...

Someone may say, “Pastor Carrin, I thought you would write a Christmas article in the December Newsletter!” Sorry! You have heard that many times in the past. Thank God you did! Conditions we now face are too grave to ignore or delay.

When the Roman General Titus–son of Emperor Vespasian–laid siege to Jerusalem in 70 a.d. and brought Jewish nationalism to crushing defeat, one of the principle weapons he used against the city was a gigantic battering-ram named Nico. The title Nico was prophetic and in a very real sense speaks to the church today. The word means "conqueror". Nico is the same word used in the Greek text of Revelation 2:15, where Jesus speaks to the church in P...

Each square inch of your skin contains approximately 35 miles of nerves. An adult body contains 75,000 miles of blood vessels, serving more than 60 billion body cells. Some vessels are so microscopically small that only one blood cell at the time can squeeze through. If all of your blood vessels could be cut open and laid side by side they would cover an area the size of a football field. During its 120 day life-span, each blood cell makes ab...
