“Bro. Sloan, would you please
tell me what is the origin of sin?
ANSWER: The history of the
first sin is found in Genesis 3:
when Satan tempted Eve. The
Bible teaches that the devil
tempts all of us, even as was
Jesus tempted. Eleb. 4: 15 says
“For we have not a high priest
which cannot be touched with
the feelings of our infirmities: but
was in all points tempted as we
are, yet without sin.” Jesus was
being tempted by the devil to
depart from the teachings of God.
But, while God allows us to be
tempted, the bible teaches that
He also provides a means or way
of escape. “There hath no temp-
tation taken you but such is com-
mon to man: but god us faithful,
who will not suffer you to be
tempted above that ye are able,
but will with the temptations
make a way to escape, that ye may
be able to bear if ’ (ICor. 10: 13).
James, the apostle wrote and
said, “Let no man say when he is
man is Mark Sloan
tempted when he is drawn away
by his own list, and enticed. ”(
Jamse 1:13, 14). This tells us the
true origin of sin; IT IS IN THE
HUMAN HEART! That is where
sin begins with each of us, and
that is whaf’origin” means.
That’s why we are warned, “Keep
thy heart with all diligence, for
out of it are the issues of life.”
(Prov.4: 23). Keep the heart pure
and sin cannot get a hold of your
life or mine.
You can send your questions
to Bro. Sloan for answer and pub-
lication in the Timpson & Tenalia

During the month of Febru-
ary, our nation recognizes
black Americans. It is time
where programs are set aside
in every state to celebrate the
accomplishments of black
Americans. At the Christian
Center, a Black History Pro-
gram was held on he fourth
There is a member of the
Christian Center who is part
of the U.S. Army. Her name
is Chaya Carter and she has
orders to report to Turkey.
Everyone in the congregation
prayed for Chaya to have a
safe arrival. And they are all
believing God that she will re-
turn to the states unharmed.
As our nation prepares to go
to Iraq, as Christians it is im-
portant to know that God is
in control. Let’s remember to
pray for our president, our
troops and our enemies.

Hello everybody. Hope all is
well with you. My blood sugar is
up. I’m just eating so much and
it is down some. Well, the sun is
shining this morning. I was glad
to see Mr. Sun. It has been a long
The Williams’ had a good ga-
rage sale Saturday. It was super.
Good day for it.
I am yet enjoying my new
home. March came in like a lamb
- it will go out like a lion. They
say we will be blessed after all.
Think we live in the better part of
I want to get me some mus-
tard plants and some potatoes
and forgot them and they are
ready to plant. You know the
times have really changed. My
dad planted com and potatoes
on the 14th of February. They
would get bit down but would
come out and make good. Where
did the com grater go? We used
to shell a cotton sack full of com.
Papa would carry to the mill on
Saturday morning. My mama
would cook that good old thick
bread for supper. One would go
to the spring and get that cooler
full of milk, crumble up that com
bread, pour milk in it. That’s all
we would have for supper. We
had a neighbor who fed their girls
com bread and when they got
big they said, “Mama, why can’t
we eat light bread like the other
kids. All we ever get is com
bread and milk.” She said if you
get hungry you will eat it. When
my brother Lemuel would go get
the milk we hid us a cup full and
drank it before he carried it to
the house. I took a piece of hog
head, hid it when I looked at it, it
was full of worms. I would get
my part of everything and was
fat as a little pig when I married
in 1933.1 weighed 210 lbs. One
time Mama was frying fish and I
Separation from God
Rom. 8: 35 “Who shall separate
us from the love of Christ? Shall
tribulation or distress, or perse-
cution, or famine, or nakedness,
or peril or sword? As it is writ-
ten, For thy sake we are killed all
the day long; we are accounted
as sheep for the slaughter. Nay,
in all these things we are more
than conquerors through Him
that loved us. For I am persuaded
that neither death nor life nor
powers nor things present nor
things to come. Nor heights nor
depth nor any other creature
shall be able to separate us from
the love of God, which is in
Christ Jesus our Lord.” This
does not say once saved, always
saved. It does not say we can-
not remove ourselves. We know
that all do sin. I John 1: 7,8 “But
stole me a piece, ran out of the
house and Mama came out run-
ning behind me. I looked and saw
her and threw it under the house.
The old Geesie got it, came out
right by me and all the rest was
trying to catch him. When I was
working at Holly Farms an old
rooster spurred me and sent me
to the hospital. After that I was
the bad rooster killer. Anyone
had a bad rooster would come
and get me a stick, I’d top him on
if we walk in the light, as He is in
the light, we have fellow ship one
with another and the blood of
Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanseth
us from all sin. If we say that we
have no sin, we deceive our-
selves, and the truth is not in us.”
James 5:19 “Brethren, if any do
err from the truth and one
converteth the sinner from the er-
ror of his way shall save a soul
from death, and shall hide a mul-
titude of sins.” So we see that
nothing can remove us from the
love of God which is in Christ
except self. Also to have the love
of God we must be in Christ. That
is to have been baptized into His
death. Mark 16”: 15,16 “And He
said unto them, Go ye into all the
world and preach the gospel to
every creature. He that believeth
and is baptized shall be saved,
the head and throw him with the
rest of the dead. No one would
tell on me. When I would want a
big fat hen, I would kill one and
tell my boss she was hung in the
wire and take her home and so
many got hung in the wire. He
said, “Addie, you stop killing
those hens.” That stopped good
but he that believes not shall be
damned.” Gal. 3: 27 “As many of
you as have been baptized into
Christ have put on Christ.” I John
2: 1-3 “My little children, these
things I write unto you that you
sin not. And if any man sin, we
have an advocate with the Father,
Jesus Christ the righteous. And
He is the propitiation for our sins.
And not for ours only, but also
for the sins of the whole world.
And hereby we do know that we
love Him, if we keep His com-
mandments.” It is very pain then,
we can remove ourselves from the
love of God. Come study with
