Bobby Thornhill, Pastor Centreville & Whites Chapel United Methodist Churches "No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon." Matthew 6:24 (NKJV) One of the greatest trag- edies in Church (every de- nomination) is that so many "Christians" try to serve God and mammon and expect to be able to pull it off in spite of the Scriptural warning, and that of the vast num- bers of those who have failed miserably in their attempts at this "double mindedness." Diversity in some things is desirable; diet, investments, and friendships for example. Diversity can be a good thing in these cases; but, diver- sity is a spiritual assassin when applied to our alle- giance to God. Trying to split our devotion between God and worldliness (mammon) simply cannot be done, as our text clearly states, and will result in our having a part time relationship with Jesus Christ. As I heard a paster on the radio say re- cently; "too many folks have bought into the idea of reli- gion, but too few have sold out to God." Many of the men and women who settled our little corner of the world came down the river on flat- boats with all their meager possessions aboard; upon finding a suitable place to camp they proceeded to dis- mantle their beat and build a new home. When we are justified through our faith in Jesus we must similarly cut our lifeline to worldli- ness and build a new rela- tionship with God through Jesus Christ. There is only one true Master, serve Him and Him alone. Wilkinson County Calendar Of Events To Add Events Please Call 601-888-4293 by noon Friday Action Taken On...
