D HOGANSVmI.E HOME NEWS - THURSDAY MARCH 27, 2003 ar. Too Many People ;gtraddling the Fence PAGE 5-A |I guess I have heard and n all I can stand. My soap- I[],k has been silent too long lwe all have probably been ase at 1 ed to the TV set during the te!" thy "free" hours we can unge up, many emotions pitch e made their way to the emptes of our beings aes fo I remember the first time foul tard the news of US war xes G_ualties, I was on the way cond la_the door and there were s in my eyes and some Swinger in my heart ! I was going out the door Jg what I "wanted" to do lille there were Amermans etmg for me to have that tt and privilege. I was sad- [.ed at the loss of life and ered at the need for such WHILE we have seen our we fighting men and rr waging war, we also zc d the nauseating fl mrtunity to see those who uld act like fools in the eets of our nation. While aay have been their rights  !Americans to speak out hinst the coming war, now it the war has begun, these c amy philosophic peo- n to keep their mouths It. I gUess the thing that irri- s me the most is the say- .many protestors are dis- Ymg that they are against war, but they support the ops. That is political hog- sh. The fact remains we aer are for our troops or A Li mr troops. Not long er the attacks of tember 11, President sh made the statement to ,.. effect that you are either I r, us or you are against us.  1J.tnat time the natron" was F v mgly 100% in agree- nt With that statement. , _pw When it i,s crunch time, ty mare .., are those who do not xiY m U,e .,_ '. aay." . v' ,tae courage to stand 10 W! . : iffere$ ....

In my personal opin- ion, you are either with America or you are against America; this is not the time for fence riders. If these folks think the USA is so terrible, then why don't they move to Iraq and live. Just as much as they have the freedom to cause our troops discouragement, they have the same freedom to pack their bags and leave. No, I am not a warmon- ger, nor do I enjoy the fact that war is being waged, but it is a necessary fact of life and we must do our part here at home while others do their part around the world. If one would even casually read their Bible, you will find where God uses foreign nations to bring judgment upon other nations. You could just about say that God used war as almost a set of checks and balances. No, God does not delight in the loss of life. In fact, God provided a way that mankind could live eternally with him in heaven. Man has chosen to rebel, man has chosen his life, and that choice has conse- quences, just like Saddam had a choice and now as a result he is reaping what he has sown. Please understand that the God claimed by Saddam is not the God we serve. In fact, the god of Saddam is the false god Allah. There is but one God and one way to eternal life and heaven. Please consider with me two verses of scripture: Isaiah 45:6 says, "That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else." John 14:6 says, "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." These two verses share the truth of one God and one way to heaven. Many may be asking, why is Jesus the only way to heaven? Why do I have to accept that truth by faith? Because Jesus is the only one who died for our sin,. [he only one who was burred for our sin, and the only one who was resurrected for our salva- tion. The gospel of Jesus Christ and repentance and faith toward him is man's only hope of eternal life. THERE MAY BE some thinking you are wrong. Okay, say I am wrong, what have I to lose? But if you are wrong, what have you to lose? The same principle holds true here as before. We are either on God's side, or we are not. The Bible plainly bears this out. Matthew 12:30 says, "He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scat- tereth abroad." Just as there is no room for fence ridders in America, there is no room for fence riders in the church of the living God. Stand up and be counted as Americans and stand up and be counted as Christians. There are already too many who are straddling the fence. TALENTED THREESOME- Kuwanna Jackson, Holly Smith and Taisa Zachery won second place in Girl's Trio at the Region 4AA Literary Meet sponsored by the Georgia High School Association. The girls sang "Lift Thine Eyes to the Mountains" from Felix Mendelssohn's ELIJAH and an arrangement of "Old Joe Clark" by Mary Goetze. The girls are students of David Davis at Callaway High School.
