Who Lost The War Between The Southern States and U.S. Government?

With all that has been going on in our country, I have been interested in the War Between The Southern States and U.S. Government off and on. It's not something that I hope happens again, but...

If I understand my history right, and I have been wrong before (once or twice, haha), the North did not defeat the South, the South defeated itself. Abraham Lincoln's main goal was not freeing the slaves, but rather preserving the Union. He is quoted as saying that if he could preserve the Union by freeing the slaves he would do that, and if he could preserve the Union by not freeing the slaves he would do that. Slavery was and is wrong. But the 10th Amendment did and does allow for states to secede from the Union. If it comes to that again, and if the Lord tarries it may, we need to use wisdom and expect that the Federal Government likely will not allow states to secede from the Union just like 150+ years ago. Even so Lord Jesus come.

"What Pastors Wish Deacons Knew" By Derek Gentle

This article was referred to me by a brother in Christ, and is no reflection whatsoever of Grace Fellowship and our Deacons. As a matter of fact, most of it doesn't apply, and this type of thing is often the result of giving Deacons in baptist and other churches more authority in the church than the bible gives. This is for the general benefit of those who read, and for the glory of God


What Pastors Wish Deacons Knew

I appreciate you more than you know
There is not a greater blessing in a pastor's life than a godly deacon who loves the Lord and loves the Word of God. I feel that I couldn't have a more wonderful relationship with them. I wish every pastor were so blessed. Just looking out in the service and seeing you there is an encouragement. Knowing you are praying for me motivates me. Knowing you share the vision of a growing, evangelistic church and impacting our community challenges me to my best efforts! God bless you godly deacon. You are appreciated!
