A milt In The Light
By George Grace
Church of Christ
Teachings from the Bible
Under the law of Moses, only
animal blood was used for sacri-
fices. If blood of bulls and goats
could have taken away the sins of
man, Christ would not have had to
come to earth to save man. We
needed a perfect sacrifice. Christ
is the only one to live on this earth
and not sin.
Heb. 10: 4-6 “ For it is impos-
sible that the blood of bulls and
goats should take away sins.
Wherefore, when he cometh into
the world, he saith, Sacrifice and
offering thou wouldest not, but a
body has thou prepared for me, In
burnt offering and sacrifices for sin
thou hast no pleasure.”
2 Chr.3: 36 “If they sin against
thee, (for there is no man which
sinneth not), and thou be angry
with them, and deliver them over
before their enemies, and they
carry them away captives into a
land far off or near.”
Rom. 3: 23 “For all have sinned
and come short of the glory of
Christ’s blood went back to
cover the faithful under the law as
well as come forward to us.
Matt. 1:21“ And she shall bring
forth a son and thou shalt call His
name Jesus, for He shall save His
people from their sins.”
Luke 19: 9-10 “And Jesus said
unto him, This day salvation has
come to this house forasmuch as
he also is a son of Abraham. For
the Son of Man has come to seek
and save that which is lost.”
Heb. 10: 9 “Then He said Lo, I
come to do thy will, O God. He
taketh away the first that He may
establish the second.”
Heb. 9: 22 “ And almost all
things by the law are purged with
blood; and without the shedding of
blood is no remission.”
Matt. 26: 28” For this is my
blood of the new testament, which
was shed for the remission of sins.”
There were 12 present Sunday.
Visitors were Gene Wayne & Joy
Hutto and Guy Ross Barton. Billy
Freeman has only the Paxton
Church this year so we will have
more time for activities. That will
be in this news soon. The Spe-
cial was “Shall We Gather at the
Church of Christ
We had 45 for service Sunday.
Nancy Keeling, daughter of
Jimmye & Joe Wallace, also
grandchildren of Bob & Wanda
Cannon, Bobby, Rachael & Chris-
topher were visiting. Visitors at the
evening service were Kim Ogden
and Phillip Pool.

Question: How can one reach
the blood of Christ?
John 3: 16 “For God so loved
the world that He gave His only
begotten Son that whosoever
believeth in Him should not perish,
but have everlasting life.”
Acts 17: 30 “And the times of
this ignorance, God once winked
at, but now commandeth all men
everywhere to repent.”
Acts 8: 37 “ And Philip said, If
thou believest thou mayest....”
Acts 2: 37 “Then Peter said
unto them, Repent and be baptized
everyone of you in the name of
Jesus Christ for the remission of
sins and ye shall receive the gift of
the Holy Ghost.”
We reach the blood of Christ by
faith, repentance, confessing
Christ, and baptism. All are re-

The Afro-Bets Ps. 68: 31 - Matt.
As weeks have gone by, we have
from A-R. Today we are starting with
S. Who can you give me, S? S said, “I
can give you Solomon. He was
David’s son through Bathsheba.
Solomon was declared to be the
smartest and wisest man who ever
lived. Nobody ever surpassed the
wealth and the wisdom of Solomon.
Solomon was a black man. Yes, he
was bom in unlikely circumstances
and what that says to you and I is it
really doesn’t matter how you got to
your start if God blessed you to be
here. God can use you in your life.
Do I have a witness? In other words,
Solomon was bom out of wedlock.
He was bom out of adultery, that’s
why I say there is no such thing as
illegitimate children . There are illegiti-
mate parents. When we read the
record, we see how the Sodomite
woman explains her beauty. She talks
about the fact that she was black and
beautiful in Song of Solomon, 1:5)
Then she goes on to describe the
beauty of Solomon in Song of
Solomon 5: 10-11. She also talks about
two or three distinctive things about
Solomon. She talked about his pretty
golden color and about the coarse
texture of his hair being as lamb’s
wool. And so what she affirms to us
is that Solomon was black. Thank
God for Solomon.
I said, “All right, T, what can you
give me?” T said, “I can give you
Tamar who married Judah.” All right,
what can you give me, U? U said, “I
can give you Uriah the Hittite. You
remember it was David who stole his
wife.” I said, all right, what about you,
V? V said, “well, don’t count me out
because I can give you the Virgin
Mary.” I said, Is that right? “Yes, V
said, Yes, when we deal with the
ancestoral line of Mary and Joseph,
both of them have Llamitic blood in
their genealoogy. Thank God for Vir-
gin Mary.” I said, V? V said, “Well,
don’t count me out because 1 can give
you the Virgin Mary.” I said, Is that
right? Yes, V said, yes, when we deal
with the ancestral line of Mary and
Joseph, both of them have Hamitic
blood in their genealogy. Thank God
for Virgin Mary. Thank God for the
one who will bear the Christ Child. I
said, what about you, W? W said, “I
can give you the wise men who when
they heard that Jesus was bom they
didn’t want to be left out. So they
followed the star and came unto Him
bringing gifts. They praised and wor-
shipped His name. But what about
X? I know you don’t have anybody
whose name begins with X. And what
the Bible says to me looking at the
Afro-Bets says, I tell you what...to x
out black folk from the Bible is an in-
complete story. We are in this Book -
this is our story. You can’t leave us

Epiphany Catholic Mission
By Fran Sobieski_
Saturday - 5 p.m.,
Thurs. - 8:30 a.m.
When the disciples of Jesus
asked, “Lord, teach us to pray,” he
entmsts them with the fundamental
Christian prayer, the Our Father,(The
The Lord’s Prayer is truly the sum-
mary of the whole gospel. “Since the
Lord... after handing over the practice
of prayer... “ask and ye shall receive”
and since everyone has petitions
which are peculiar to his circum-
stances, the appropriate prayer the
Lord’s Prayer is said first as founda-
tion for the petitions.
All the Scripture, the Law, the
Prophets and the Psalms are fulfilled
in Christ. Luke 24:44. The Gospel is
the “Good News.” Its first proclama-
tion is summarized by St. Matthew in
the Sermon on the Mount. Matt. 5: 7,
the prayer to Our Father is at its cen-
ter. It is in this context of the procla-
Prayer also reveals the end of the
world character of its petitions. It is
proper prayer of the “end time,” the
time of salvation that began with the
outpouring of the Holy Spirit and will
be fulfilled when the Lord returns.
If we pray the Our F ather sincerely,
we leave individualism behind, be-
cause the love we receive fills us from
it. The “our” at the beginning of the
Lord’s Prayer, like the “us” of the last
four petitions excludes no one. If we
are to pray it truthfully, our divisions
and our oppositions have to be over-
The Our Father brings us into
communion with the Father and His
Son, Jesus Christ, at the same time it
reveals us to ourselves.
Epiphany Mission will have their
Country Store in the old Bill’s Dollar
Store, Timpson, July 4-7. Luncheon

mation that each petition bequeathed
to us by the Lord is illuminated.
According to the Apostolic tradi-
tion, the Lord’s Prayer is essentially
rooted in liturgical prayer, The Lord
teaches us to make prayer in com-
mon for all. For He did not say “My
Father” who are in heaven, but “our
Father” offering petitions for the
common body. In all the liturgical tra-
ditions, the Lord’s Prayer is an inte-
gral part of the major hours of the
Divine office. The three sacraments

In Baptism and Confirmation, the
