Our honor, our Christianity and our manhood are things which should be greatly valued by all men claiming to be Christians. As men, we tend to place a value on a great many things.

The discussion regarding a name change has continued, off and on, for more than 40 years. Wayne Van Gelderen Sr., Frank Bumpus, Dr. Bob Jones III, Rod Bell, and James Singleton were the ones that began the discussion.

Absorbed with God — CONTINUALLY

George Stiekes

Seek the LORD and His strength, seek His face CONTINUALLY. (1 Chronicles 16:11)

Stephen Colbert to the graduating class at the University of Virginia: “Your generation needs everything to be about you, and that’s very upsetting to us baby boomers because self-absorption is sort of our thing.”
