  • Part 2: What the devil doesn't want you to know

    Part II
    Last week, we talked about how the devil is not all-powerful, not all-knowing, and cannot be everywhere at once. His power is nowhere close to God’s. Most of his power is simply derived by creating illusions in your mind, having you believe a lie. The mind is where your battlefield is. This leads into this week’s topic: temptation.
    James 1:13 says, “And remember, when you are being tempted, do not say, ‘God is tempting me.’ God is never tempted to do wrong, and he never tempts anyone else.”


  • Haircuts and hope

    The other day I was sitting in the barber’s chair and I realized two things. First, there is not nearly as much hair falling on the floor around me as there used to be. Second, the hair that is falling has changed color. I would still call my hair color brown overall, but more grey has crept than I like to admit.

  • Don't fish too deep on lakes

    By Lee McClellan
    Fishing instruction for decades preached anglers should fish deep, cool water during the hottest days of the summer.
    This makes sense, as fish are cold-blooded animals and their body temperature is the same temperature as the temperature of the water that surrounds them.
    However, fishing deep water in summer on a lake such as Taylorsville Lake may mean your offerings are in a “dead zone.” Warming air temperatures change the nature of the water in a lake. Anglers need to consider these changes while summer fishing.
