    The budget situation is very concerning for many of us. We are already about $133 million short for this current fiscal year, and it doesn’t look any more hopeful for next year. At the risk of stating the obvious, these appropriation and revenue measures we are passing are based on a projection that may not have any basis in fact. We finally have an education funding bill, but it is just copied from last year’s appropriation, and that had to be cut by $7 million

  • DUNCAN/‘Temptation, sin, and faith’
    Wednesday, January 25, 2017 6:00 PM
    Turn in your Bible to Luke 17:1-6. I want to remind you that throughout Luke 16 Jesus has been dealing with both the Pharisees’ lives and their teaching. Their sin is leading the people of God astray, so here Jesus is concerned to say to His disciples, “Do not live and teach like the Pharisees.” In many ways it's a contrast; it's a positive exhortation in light of His negative criticism of the Pharisees in Luke 16.
  • DUNCAN/“What is the Kingdom of God Like”
    Wednesday, November 9, 2016 6:00 PM
    This week we will look at Luke 13:18-21. In this passage Jesus tells two parables describing the kingdom of God. ‘Kingdom of God’ refers to the reign of God in this world and especially in the hearts of men and women and boys and girls. Jesus talks about it all the time. His gospel is bringing in the kingdom, and the kingdom creates the people of the kingdom, the church of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • EDITORIAL/Jack Wilson for Court of Appeals

    There are three qualified candidates running for election in the race for the Mississippi Court of Appeals in our district, but we believe incumbent Judge Jack Wilson represents the best in young, conservative leadership.
  • EDITORIAL/Griffis for Supreme Court
    Wednesday, November 2, 2016 6:00 PM
    The race for Mississippi Supreme Court directly impacts everyone in Mississippi. With the longest elected term in Mississippi government (eight years), the decision on who sits on the high court is a serious choice on which voters should consider and turn out to the polls on Nov. 8.

    Turn to Luke 12:49-59. As you look through this passage, let me give you a few clues along the way to help you follow the train of argument. There are at least three parts to this passage. First, in verses 49 and 50, and especially in verse 50, Jesus makes a powerful declaration. He’ll follow it up in verses 51 to 53 with a penetrating question. Then, in verses 54 to 59, He turns to the multitudes and gives them an admonition, warning them because they lack spiritual discernment.
