Mike, I was reading SpeakOut in the paper on Monday, Sept. 10. The article said women were not to rule over men. It went on to say that the churches weren't preaching the truth anymore. How true that is! If you can show me anywhere in scripture that allows a woman to pastor a church, I haven't found it. I wish somebody would tell me where it's at if it's in there. If you look at Titus 1, 5, 6 and 7, it's very plain what it is saying. It's just as plain as the Ten Commandments that are written out. Also read Titus 2 and 5. I have been looking for a different church. All the preachers today are just preaching what the people want to hear. They don't want to rock the boat. I think there are going to be more preachers in hell than anyone else. It won't have room for any others if they don't change their ways and go back to preaching what is right. It's like Jack and Jill. It tells you that Jack and Jill went up the hill to get a pail of water. When it tells you that a deacon or elder or bishop or preacher needs to be the husband of one wife to hold that office. I don't see nowhere yet where a woman can be a husband of another woman. If they hook it up that way, they're doing something else that is worse. I've said my piece.
I went to a Bell City shindig Sunday to watch a pageant for the small children. They all were adorable. However, when they got to the 2 and 3-year-old age group it ended in chaos. They crowned this cute little girl queen, gave her a trophy and then decided it was the wrong girl. They literally took the child off the throne, took away her crown and trophy and gave it to another little girl. I was standing close by and never heard an apology to the first little girl or her family. Guys, this is so wrong. You should have been more careful. You don't do this to our children, regardless of their age. Perhaps they had a hard time trying to figure out if that number was a 1 or a 3. Well, I left after that and probably won't take that 25-mile drive next year. They may tell me it's only a 10-mile trip and I'd be waiting in a field somewhere waiting for the pageant to begin.
This is to the local farmers in the Sikeston area. I am standing on my back patio watching some of the cornfields burn. I understand why the farmers do this, I am from a farm family myself. But as I'm standing here watching this, all the black gunk from the burning fields is falling all over our concrete, plus in our pool. I'm in my house watching my son with allergies and asthma having lots of trouble being outside and trying to play with all this stuff in the air. I wish the farmers in this area would just go back to tilling their cornstalks under instead of burning because of the environment that everyone is so concerned about.
Fisherman's Net in Sikeston has the best steak in town. I was very surprised to find that their ribeye was delicious. You want a good steak? Try them.
