I too go to church and my relationship with God is the most important part of my life. All of which is why i have a problem with whatever Mr Bevis is/was attempting to achieve in this thread.
Whether or not the Times Daily has a religous section is no bearing to my faith, it will not weaken because TD has chosen to eliminate it,nor did i ever see anything in it that actually fed my faith or enhanced it . The section was filled each week with advertisements for churches,who did what great deeds,who went where, who planed to do what, etc. Rarely was there ever any articles of actual teachings, or faith experience articles.
We do not need a religous brag board. What the area possibly needs is faith based newsletter, where all churches can list their service times, special group meetings, services they offer to the community. Some REAL stories and articles of faith and praise to our Lord.We need to read uplifting things of Gods wonderous powers to touch lives and changes lives, His unconditional love for all mankind. And no not stories of how many souls ole so-and-so saved on what trip to where,,,for they saved no ones soul,only God has that power, we are simply tools to spread His word and introduce His teachings. And each and every one of us claiming to be christians have an obligation to our Lord to help build His kingdom up. Vanity in ones own work has no place.
