  • Consuming Alcohol

    Contributed by Lee Edgar Elkins on Jan 21, 2013
     | 2,213 views

    This sermon is dealing with the consumption of alcohol.

    World Hunger Sunday: God’s judgment will come on a people whose consumption habits oppress others and whose patriotism masks greed. But God will continue to send blessings on a people who will invest more in others.

    The laws of physics say that what goes up must come down. You pitch a rock into the air and right away it comes down with a thud. Hendricks throws a football in a long arc out over the New York Giant defenders and knows that it will come down, he hopes into the hands of Monk or Clark or Sanders who ...read more
