Bobby Thornhill, Former Pastor Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches When a life is committed to Him His power brings about changes in that life that are unmistakable and undeniable; to deny (or ne- gate) God's power is the work of an unrighteous life and of one not committed to Christ. It is not merely an accidental condition but one that is considered and purposeful in its desire to remain unchanged and un- godly while 'appearing to have many of the qualities of those who place their faith in Jesus. Many are those who know all of the "church words" and who al- so attend services regular- ly yet in their hearts they deny God's word access to their soul and refuse the invitation to change. They can't change because they will not change; they are "lovers of themselves, lov- ers of money, proud, blas- phemers.:.and from such people turn away!" Strong words to young Timothy; strong words for us today, especially to the ungodly who present themselves as righteous members of the Church. "But know this that in the last days peril- ous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves...having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!" 2 Timothy 3:1-5 (NKJV) Please read these five verses to get a clear un- derstanding of the depth of depravity and disobedience that Paul is warning young Timothy to prepare himself for. What is most troubling about these verses is that Paul is speaking to Timo- thy concerning those who will be in his congrega- tions. The phrase "having a form of godliness" tells us that these are (in ef- fect) members of the early Church; that the phrase continues with "but deny- ing its power" affirms their lack of commitment to Je- sus and His righteousness.

On motion by Nettles and a second by Jackson, the board voted unani- mously to declare an emer- gency in the county due to damages to roads, bridges and culverts caused in the past two weeks by heavy rains. "This will allow the county to apply for possible funding to make the neces- sary repairs to get affected county roads back in safe condition," said Clerk Toll- iver. Wilkinson County Su- perintendent of Educa- tion Timothy T. Scott and Board of Education Business Manager Nakia Stewart, appeared before board to request that the county change the way they list property tax monies made available to the school district. "We are not request- ing any more tax millage from the county," Stewart stated. "We only need you to break it down from one disbursement of 5.7 mills to two separate accounts of 3.0 mills to the school district's Debt Service Fund and the other 2.7 mills to the school dis- trict's Shortfall Fund. If the county agrees to do this then they will send the money in exactly as we report it to the state." On motion by Nettles and a second by Hollins, the board agreed by 5-0 to begin reporting the mon- ies allocated to the school district in this manner. Assistant County En- gineer Doug Wimberly presented the supervisors with the recently complet- ed "Annual Bridge Inspec- tion" report. Wimberly said, "Ev- ery district has about 4-6 bridges that are in serious need of repairs or replace- ment. There are about 25 total bridges in this cat- egory according to this lat- est report. Of this number 1-2 in each district have al- ready been closed to traffic due to their unsafe condi- tion." After completing busi- ness on the meeting agen- da, the board recessed un- til Tuesday, November 17, at 9:30 a.m. Once recessed, Supervi- sor Nettles requested that the board reconvene so he could present his district's CAMP VAN DORN MUSEUM TO HOLD VETERANS' PROGRAM The Camp Van Dorn WWII Museum in Centrev- file will host an Open House on Sunday, November 8, be- tween the hours of 1:00 and 3:00 p.m., in observance of Veterans Day and a celebra- tion of the facility's 10 year anniversary.
