People came from the four corners of the world and are still coming. When our nation was founded it was on God's principles and a strong belief in Jesus Christ, His Son and our Savior. America won our independence, wrote our Con- stitution, elected our president, congressmen, and senators and became a great nation. Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of England, recently deceased, said in a speech not long before her death that "The modern world be- gan July 4, 1776." From the foundation of the world God has had a plan and He is still alive and working out His plan. His desire is that we believe in Him and accept His Son, Jesus Christ, as our Savior and Lord, but He also gave us the free-will to choose. Our self-righteousness will never be good enough to stand before God. It is only the shed tor, EIder.J.C. Rodgers. CLEAR SPRINGS BAPTIST CHURCH Rev.

FAITH DELIVERANCE APOSTOLIC CHURCH Pastor Belcher and the Faith Deliverance Apostolic Church fam- ily invites you to come and worship the Lord BY MILNER PERRY blood of Jesus Christ that can cleanse us enough to enter into God's presence. This Easter season made me even more aware of what Christ did for me. There's an empty cross, an empty tomb. There's a hungry world, there's a risen King. What more could we need? Today some have decided that we might offend others if we proclaim Christ as Lord, even wanting to take "In God we trust" from our currency. "One day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess" that Christ is Lord. He "will be" King on that great day. It is important that we proclaim that "Good news" that Christ died for me. He loves us and wants to have fellowship with us. If you are hurting today, look for a church, and worship with a body of believers who will love you in so many ways you will have to be lifted up. All your burdens may not be taken away, but God will undergird you and give you strength to endure. with them in spirit and in truth. (St. John 4:23- 24).
