The Right Choice

Bishop David EppsArticle by BISHOP DAVID EPPS

Life is about choices. Whatever environmental, behavioral, or genetic factors are involved, the ability to choose is what sets humanity apart from all the rest of creation. There are those Christians who believe that humans really have no choice, that all has been predetermined. I believe that they are wrong.

In the creation account, God gives our first parents two choices: Obey God, walk with him, and enjoy a life of perfection or choose to disobey and lose everything. Later, an Old Testament passage would state, “I have set before you this day blessing and cursing, life and death. Choose life and live.” God is always on the side of life and he gives people freedom to choose.

  • Chicory is Arian, not truly coffee at all but a separate creation. read more…

Legion Pool

Article by BISHOP DAVID EPPS

When I was a kid, I spent a good part of my summers at the Legion Pool in Kingsport, TN.

The pool was large and could accommodate a great many people, although the primary customers were children and youth.

The “shallow” end of the pool ranged in depth from about three feet to six feet while the “deep end,” which had a low diving board and a high diving board, went about ten feet deep. read more…

Visions of HeavenYou are invited to join Archbishop Church Jones at the Cathedral of  Christ the King in Selma, Alabama for the School of the Prophets scheduled for May 15-17, 2014.

Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. 1 Cor 14:1

The Lord loves to give gifts to his children. As it states in 1 Cor. 14, desire earnestly to prophesy. Why? The prophetic builds up the body, gives comfort and encouragement to those who are in need and proclaims on earth what is in heaven.
