Bobby Thornhill, Pastor Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches In his two epistles to Timothy the great Apos- /le tells us of perilous Hmes that are certain to ,me during these last Jays. These last days :., defined as the time / r,m Jesus ascension ntil His second com- ;ng. Paul speaks of a time when "some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving McComb, MS HUNTING LAND NEEDED!!! Have qualified buyers looking for hunting land.

Call Alan 601-249-8436 or email: alan@ spirits and doctrines of demons ..." 1 Timothy 4:1 (NKJV) In 2 Timothy 3:1 Paul tolls us "that in the last days perilous times will come:" and he goes on to describe their attitudes and behavior. The great tragedy in those two passages is that those of whom Paul speaks of as "de- parting from the faith," and becoming "lovers of them- selves..." are Christians, at least they were before de- parting from the faith. Now, having left their relationship with Jesus, they are con- sumed by their own lust for what the world has to offer. Many of these will still have an outward appearance of rightoousness; their speech may still exhibit some trac- es of a faith now departed; but as Paul says, they have only a 'Torm of godliness but deny its power, and from such people we are to turn away." As it has been since God chose the Israelites as His people; so it is still today; the sinful conduct of those who are the recipients of His Grace is to blame for the perilous times ahead and at hand. The only solution is to turn back to God in sincerity and truth; the Church first, then the world. rmmmmmmlmmmmmmmmm State Public Relations Winner Mary J.
