Keep Christmas in your heart every day of year

Have you ever thought about how this world would be had Jesus not been born? I shudder to think about it. Imagine a world of no absolutes without any standards of right or wrong. Mankind has always had a sin problem, but we do have a choice and a wrong choice brings bondage, imprisoning the […]

Remember Mary on Mother’s Day

None of us can ever imagine the pain, shame and agony that Jesus endured upon the cross. Jesus demonstrated his great love for all by voluntarily laying down his life. Being a mother of sons, I can only identify to a small degree with the agony Mary must have had for her son. Seeing my […]

Military clergy should not fear ministering gays

Freedom New Mexico Jesus dined with prostitutes and far, far worse sinners. He even dined with tax collectors, perhaps the worst sinners of all. Jesus loved sinners, representing to them the power of God’s love for humanity. He was truth and he had no fear of sin. He knew that love always conquered hate and […]

Let’s celebrate Jesus every day

Christmas is a time to celebrate the greatest human event of all time. No other event compares to or has affected history as much as this man called Jesus. None other brings peace like the “Prince of Peace.” None other wants the highest good for its converts, and certainly no other religion gives life abundant […]

It doesn’t take much Bible reading to inform us that cows have been domesticated for centuries. Why, Adam even named ‘em. They’re […]

Jesus just a prayer away

Joan Clayton In this journey of life, we have ups and downs, but with Jesus we always win. We had a big “down” recently. My husband was sent to Lubbock by helicopter. It was hard to be calm, but I felt God’s presence. After six days, Emmitt was brought back home for rehabilitation. I just […]

Memorial Day is to honor those I am thankful for

By Joan Clayton: PNT columnist Memories flood my soul as I visit the graves of loved ones who have gone on before me. As far back as I can remember, thoughts of my grandfather remind me of his love for Jesus. My grandmother’s singing as she churned butter in the big crock with a dasher […]

The stone has been rolled away

By Joan Clayton: PNT columnist Jesus knew the suffering he would have to endure, but he chose the cross anyway. He could have called “10,000 angels” to come to his aid, but then, where would we be? Jesus took the sins of mankind once and for all so we could escape the Old Testament judgment. […]
