If a person is determined, they will find a way. The only thing gun laws do is keep firearms out of the hands of law-abiding citizens. I believe if people are worried about being shot all the time that THEY are the paranoid ones, not the g...

It was a picture of an empty tomb and the caption read, “Christmas was the promise. Easter is the proof.” Some who liked and shared it from my posting were other pastors. Some were family. Some were just friends. It’s easy to share Christian ...
