Just about everybody has heard of Billy Graham, but what about Chuck Templeton?  What about Bron Clifford?  Have you ever heard of them?  Did you know that they were also packing our auditoriums in 1945 when Billy Graham first preached to large crowds?  I want to share with you some thoughts prompted by Pastor Tommy Barnett of Phoenix. All three of these young men rose to prominence in their middle twenties.  One seminary president, after hearing Chuck Templeton – a brilliant, dynamic preacher – called him the most gifted, talented young preacher in America.  Templeton and Graham became very close friends.  They started preaching together with the Youth For Christ organization.  Most observers thought that Templeton would be the one who would go to the top.  One magazine wrote a feature article calling Templeton the “Babe Ruth of evangelism”.
Bron Clifford was another gifted, young fireball evangelist.  Many believed that Clifford was the most gifted powerful preacher to come up in the church for many centuries.  People lined up for hours to hear him preach.  When he went to Baylor University to give a discourse, they actually cut the ropes off the bells of the tower.  They wanted nothing to interfere with his preaching.  For two and one half-hours the students of Baylor sat on the edges of their seats as he gave a dissertation on “Christ and the Philosopher’s Stone.”  At age 25, Clifford touched more lives, influenced more leaders and set more attendance records that any other clergyman in American history.  National leaders vied for his attention.  He was tall, handsome, dashing, sophisticated and intelligent.  Hollywood actually tried to cast him in the lead role for the famous movie, “The Robe”.  He seemed to have everything.
Graham, Templeton, and Clifford launched out of the starting blocks like Olympic gold medallists in 1945.  Why haven’t you heard of Chuck Templeton or Bron Clifford?  The answer might surprise you.
By 1950 Templeton had left the ministry.  He pursued a radio career.  He became an announcer and a newscaster, telling the world that he no longer believed Jesus Christ was the Son of God.  He became an atheist.  By 1950, this future Babe Ruth of preaching was not even in the ball game!
By 1954 Clifford had lost his family, ministry and health.  Eventually he lost his life because of addiction to alcohol.  Financial irresponsibility left his wife and their two Downs syndrome children penniless.  This once famous preacher dies of cirrhosis of the liver at the age of 35 in a rundown hotel on the edge of Amarillo, Texas.  He died a pitiful, dishonorable and unsung death.  Some pastors from Amarillo, Texas got together and collected enough money to buy a cheap casket.  They shipped his body back to the East Coast, where he was buried in a pauper’s cemetery.
In 1945 all three of these men with extraordinary gifts were preaching for the purpose of multiplying the church by thousands of people.  But within 10 years only one of them was still on track for Christ.
In Christian life it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish!  A recent survey shocked me; it reported that only one out of ten who start in ministry at the age of 21 serve the Lord to age 65.  They fall away from ministry due to immorality, pride, discouragement, liberal theology and a love for wealth and the things of this world.  Here is my question to you today –





Beware of this book! Oprah is pushing it.

It is scary that someone would be bold enough to write a book from God’s point of view contrary to His Word.

If you have children or grandchildren, work with children at church, or you have neighborhood children whose parents you know, please take note of the information below and pass it along to others.

Schools are distributing this book to children through the Scholastic Book Club.

The name of the book is
“Conversations with God”.

Please pay special attention not only to what your kids watch on TV, in movie theaters, on the Internet, and the music they listen to, but also be alert regarding the books they read

Two particular books are,
“Conversations with God” and “Conversations with God for Teens”
Authored by; Neale D. Walsch.

They sound harmless enough by their titles alone, but hese books have been on the New York Times best sellers list for weeks, and they make truth of the statement, “Don’t judge a book by its cover or title.”

The author purports to answer various questions asked by kids using the “voice of God”. However, the “answers” that he gives are not Bible-based and go against the very infallible Word of God. For instance (and I paraphrase), when a girl asks the question “Why am I a lesbian?” His answer is that she was ‘born that way’ because of genetics (just as you were born right-handed, with brown eyes, etc.). Then he tells her to go out and “celebrate” her differences.

Another girl poses the question “I am living with my boyfriend. My parents say that I should marry him because I am living in sin. Should I marry him?” His reply is, “Who are you sinning against? Not me, because you have done nothing wrong.”

Another question asks about God’s forgiveness of sin. His reply “I do not forgive anyone because there is nothing to forgive… There is no such thing as right or wrong and that is what I have been trying to tell everyone, do not judge people. People have chosen to judge one another and this is wrong, because the rule is “‘judge not lest ye be judged.”

Not only are these books the false doctrine of the devil, but in some instances quote (in error) the Word of God.

And the list goes on. These books (and others like it) are being sold to school children through (The Scholastic Book Club), and we need to be aware of what is being fed to our children.

Our children are under attack. So I pray that you be sober and vigilant about teaching your children the Word of God, and guarding their exposure to worldly medium, because our adversary, the devil, roams about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8).

Please make your church and smallgroups aware of it and discuss questions like these with your children.


The Power of God's Grace

Throughout her 69 years, Norma McCorvey, aka “Jane Roe” of the tragic 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in all 50 states, was a woman whose complicated and grief-laden life spanned the spectrum from abortion activist to pro-life stalwart.


The product of a broken home, Ms. McCorvey was repeatedly raped by a relative, dropped out of school when she was in the 9th grade, married at 16 and divorced shortly thereafter. She had three children, all by different men. She wound up making adoption plans for all of them, including the daughter who became the subject of the legendary court decision in January of 1973.



Her conversion to Christianity twenty-years later wound up transforming her opinion of abortion and she began championing the cause of life, working feverishly to have her own case overturned.


Ms. McCorvey’s remarkable story boldly demonstrates that nobody is beyond the reach and grace of God. We mourn her passing and applaud the commitment of her late-life convictions. Hers was a long and painful journey in search of many things. Yesterday, it found the most important thing of all – eternal peace with Jesus Christ.


A certain generation...

A certain gentleman walked into a hotel and after perusing through the menu ordered for some food. After about 20 mins another group of gentlemen walked in and ordered for theirs. To his dismay, the first gentleman saw them get served first. He watched as they began to eat and laugh heartily. He even overheard one of them brag about how he knew everyone at that hotel and how things moved fast for him there. He felt he was being mocked.


SAVE A HOME TODAY. Happy Mother's Day Sisters....

●Don’t shout at your wife when you are talking. It really hurts her. (Proverbs 15:1)
●Do not speak evil of her to anyone. Your wife will become who you call her. (Gen. 2:19)
●Do not share her love or affection with another woman. It is called Adultery. (Matt. 5:28)
●Never compare your wife to another woman. If the other woman was good for you, God would have given her to you. (2 Cor. 10:12)

Lifted from a friend Facebook...

If you left the Church to get away from hypocritical people. you should also quit your job.drop out of school.disconnect yourself from all of your friends and family. lock yourself in your room while you’re at it. There will be flaws wherever there are humans. We need to start seeing church for what it is: it is a hospital with wounded and hurt people. You will find messed up. conniving. calculating. imperfect individuals. including yourself. As much as you want to deny it. we all go for healing. So if you felt betrayed by a fellow Church member. put your Nursing cap on. and think of them as your patients. Treat them with care, love and kindness despite their rudeness.


This was sent to me by my sister.

Pls take a minute to read this. This is very scary & could happen to others…Seems like every nice thing people do for one another can be perverted. A new twist on kidnapping from a very smart survivor: pls read on👉
About a month ago there was a woman standing by the mall entrance passing out flyers to all the women going in. The woman had written the flyer herself to tell about an experience she had, so that she might warn other women. The previous day, this woman had finished shopping, went out to her car & discovered that she had a flat. She got the jack out of the trunk & began to change the flat.

New Hotel Scam!

Good morning. I just received the below message and thought to share.

New Hotel Scam!
This is one of the smartest scams I have heard about.  You arrive at your hotel and check in at the front desk. Typically when checking in, you give the front desk your credit card (for any charges to your room) and they don’t retain the card.

For Trivia...WEEKEND LAFF!
