Several years ago the story was told of a church which expe- rienced severe problems over where the new baby grand piano should be placed Another story is told of a church which had an argument over the direction the toilet paper ought to come off the roll. Still another story of a church fight over the color of the new carpet, a fuss so severe that Vacation Bible School had to be canceled. When we hear stories of such conduct, our prayers ought to be that they are not true. While some stories we hear are nothing more than a gossip's exaggeration, sadly some of these church hor- ror stories are true. But thank- fully, most of these cases are the exception and not the rule. IN PAST DAYS the statement has been made in these very arti- cles that a church is made up of those who have trusted Christ as their Savior. If this is the case, why is it that such stories we previously- told have credibility? In think- ing about that question, we can turn to the Bible for the answer. By the way, for the questions one may have about time and eternity, the answer is in the word of God! Why do churches fuss? The Apostle Paul gives us two rea- sons. The church that has the most notorious reputation for fighting is the church Paul wrote to at Corinth. IN THE FIRST letter to the Corinthians, Paul tackles the problem of division at the very beginning. First Corinthians chapter two and verse fourteen gives us reason number one. He said, "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the spirit of God." Here he is speak- ing of the man not saved. The reason some churches fuss is because they have unsaved peo- ple who have come to join the local assembly. In our church, those who do not profess Christ as Savior are welcome to come and join in the services, but they do not become members until they accept Christ as their Savior. Although unsaved people being members of a church do cause problems, the greatest cause of church fights, such as in the church at Corinth, are Christians who are still imma- ture in their Christian life and are controlled by the flesh instead of the Spirit. I CORINTHIANS 3:1 says, "And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ." At the risk of ruffling someone's feathers, the reason most churches have fusses is because somewhere, some church member is acting like a child wanting their own way rather than an adult who has sur- rendered themselves to follow the Bible's principles of conduct. You may be thinking, nowhere does everyone agree on everything. That is true and we are not expected to. Even the Apostle Paul had a disagreement with the Apostle Peter, but we find Paul handled the situation in a biblical fash- ion. The lesson we can learn today is that when we do have dis- agreements, the way to settle it is one on one with the person dis- agreed with. The telephone, bar- ber or beauty shop, grocery store or some such place is not the place to settle our differences. I'M THANKFUL FOR those church members who faithfully read from week to week and who strive to live peaceably with all men. I love Antioch Baptist Church as well as any church that is faithful to the Bible. Being a part of a loving church is a won- derful thing. To those who read and are church members, may we show a lost and dying world what it is like to be a part of a church that loves the Lord, loves each other and loves lost people. The message Sunday morn- hag was "Jesus is Preparing us a Wedding Supper" (Matthew 22:14; Luke 14:15). Many are called but few are chosen. Sunday evening the message was fear the things of Satan. Don't allow them to come between you and our Lord. (Matthew 13:47-48; Mark 9:43 48). A van will be picking up chil- dren very soon in the Cooksville area. If your children aren't in church and you'd like to get them in a church geared for young peo- ple, please call our pastor at 812- 9306. Thought for the Week: God uses our down times to build us up.

Today was the day she hiked to Grandmother's house all by herself. "Mother," she whispered as she slipped on her shoes, "I'm a little scared." "It is scary when you first go alone, but it is time. Remember, your grandmother promised to pray very hard until you get there. Stay in the lighted path and don't go into the dark forest and you'll be fine." Her mother kissed her and sent her on her way. She bravely walked down the path with the thought of her grandmother's prayers to comfort her. Suddenly, a big bad wolf jumped out of the forest, ran up to her and said, "Little girl, I normally don't come into the light, but you walk with such confidence showing no fear of me that I had to find out why." The little girl patted the wolf's head and said, "When Grandmother prays, things don't seem so scary anymore." Weekly Bible Trivia Adam and Eve had three son. Name them.
