Clif's Notes: Dont Speak to the Parrot

Don’t Speak to the Parrot

By Clifton Fox, Church of Christ

 

A lady’s dishwasher quit working, so she called a repairman. He didn’t do repairs at night, and she worked a job during the daytime. So, she told him: "I'll leave the key under the mat. You just go on in and fix the dishwasher. Then, leave the bill on the counter, and I'll mail you the Check. Also, don't worry about my Rottweiler. He won't bother you. But, whatever you do, absolutely do not, under any circumstances, talk to my parrot."

The Effects of Baptism                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

People often miss the fact that baptism gives us a new life/new birth because they have an impoverished view of the grace God gives us through baptism, which they think as a mere symbol. But Scripture is clear that baptism is much more than a mere symbol.

Tom’s Topics

By Tom Hawkins

Many, many Americans were tuned in on Monday night  to hear the first presidential debate for the 2016 presidential election. Of course, the debate was between GOP Nominee Donald Trump and Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton. This first debate between the two was expected to attract a record number of  listeners.

Early voting for the November 8th election will begin on October 24 and will end on November 4. Early voting in Limestone County will be at the Courthouse in Groesbeck and the Courthouse Annex in Mexia.

You must register to vote by October 11, in order to vote in the November 8th election.

The book club reads a different book each month.

Shepherd Sayings

Jesus said to His people, “Go out along the back roads and fence rows and make people come in so that my house will be full.” (Luke 14:23 CEV) Jesus, Himself, went from town to town ministering. He sent His disciples from village to village teaching and preaching.

The church must take the Gospel message of Jesus' death, burial and resurrection outside the church building. We can expect neither the bars nor the media to tell people about Jesus.

Planned Parenthood does not teach that sexual promiscuity and abortion is sin. Jesus left the church on earth to do that job. The church must butt heads with the world. Whatever it takes, the church must share God's message of forgiveness through the death of Jesus, with people who do not know about Him.

Suppose the angels asked Jesus when He returned to heaven from earth, “Did you get your work done?”  “Yes, it is all finished,” the Lord replied.

Rita's Reflections

 

I have recently been thinking about how God shows us His presence in seemingly simple, everyday ways:  a purple sunrise or sunset, a timely call from a friend, a luminous and full harvest moon, simple pleasures like enjoying our favorite food, a walk in the beauty of God's creation, observing a child beholding a wonder that adults take for granted, an unexpected joyous surprise, a kind word.  I encourage you to take the time to notice God's care and presence in your daily life.

 

Thanks!

Clif's Notes: The Top 10 Reasons for Going To Hell

 

By Clifton Fox

 

The wicked “will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life" (Mt. 25:46).

My friend, Hell is as real and as eternal for the lost, as Heaven will be real and as long for the saved. No rational person wants to go to Hell, but here are 10 reasons the wicked choose Hell:

 

‎1. It requires no effort at all to get there. Just do nothing…you’ll get there.

‎2. Those who enjoy walking with the wicked here… will walk with the wicked there.

3. You won't be pestered by the watchful eye of God. …nor His love, peace or hope.

‎4. You won't be expected to attend worship or Bible study…no point to.

‎5. You won't have to commit yourself or your time to God… But you will to the Devil.

‎6. Purity & holiness won’t be expected of anyone there…nor will kindness or compassion.

‎7. No faithful Christians will be there to urge you to greater Christian service.
