Throw the bums out of office
People are in a foul mood! Congress is incompetent, our legislators fail to do what they were elected (hired) to do. Remember “Where are the jobs?” Well, not in Nevada.
We are waiting for our elected members of our government to do their job! However, we will not wait too long. Remember, Congress is less popular than root canals, cockroaches, lice, colonoscopies. Therefore, I say vote the bums out!
Make your peace with God before it’s too late
My friends, if you died today, do you know you would go to heaven? “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Did you know that?
Who is good? “As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one,” Romans 3:10.
Who has sinned? “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
Where did sin come from? “Wherefore, as by one man (Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned,” Romans 5:12.
God’s price on sin: “For the wages of sin is death (both spiritual and physical) but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord,” Romans 6:23.
God’s way out for us: “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us,” Romans 5:8. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved,” Romans 10:9. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved,” Romans 10:13.
Time is running out. Make peace with God today! For more information, go to pastormikeonline.com.
