Gospel Gardening: Ferguson and Beyond

Gardening(1)

Something is wrong with our garden. God cares about it. We should too.

There are weeds preventing water from reaching the soil. There are plants suffering drought. There are areas where soil nutrients are being overtaxed. Recent events are a reminder that our garden in America is unhealthy and is in desperate need of maintenance; specifically when we look at the powder keg that is race in America.

A few examples: The shooting fatality of Mike Brown in Ferguson. The choking fatality of Eric Garner in Staten Island, NY. The shooting fatality of John Crawford III in a southwestern Ohio Walmart. The shooting fatality of Ezell Ford in Los Angeles.The shooting fatality of Darrien Hunt outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. All unarmed African Americans killed while being arrested or in custody.

There are also certainly huge issues within the African American…

  2. IS THERE NO GOD?-BY STEVE FINNELL

    Atheists claim there is no God, but do they believe it? Is it possible that atheists simply deny that there is a God? Is it plausible that atheists know there is a God, but because of pride, choose not to acknowledge the existence of God?

    James 2:19 You believe that God is one. You do well; that demons also believe, and shudder.

    Strange that demons believe in God, but atheists claim they do not believe there is a God.

    Mark 1:23-24 Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24 saying, “What business do we have with each other Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are—The Holy One of God!”

    Atheists proclaim they do know or believe that there is a God. Unclean spirits not only believe that Jesus is The Holy One of God, but that he has the power to destroy them.

    Psalm 14:1 The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is no one who does good.

    Do some men deny there is a God as a self deception. If there is no God then there is no right from wrong, no good and evil. If there is no God then men can create a moral code that comports with their lifestyle.

    Romans 1:19-20 because that which is know about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse,

    God has made it evident in every man that He exists. Denying God does not change the fact of the existence of God.

    Psalms 19:1 The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.

    All you have to do to believe there is God, is look up!

    1 Corinthians 20-21 Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

    The foolish wisdom of the world cannot prove that there is no God.

    Through the preaching of the gospel men can believe in God and that Jesus is the Son of God!

    ATHEISTS DENY THAT GOD EXISTS, BUT DO THEY REALLY BELIEVE IT?
