Are you in need of spiritual rest today?

Posted on September 7, 2016 6:06 am by Sparta Live

By Macil Duncan, Gum Springs Baptist Church

Have you ever wondered why they did not call it “Rest Day” instead of “Labor Day?” Labor Day reflects hard workers that were not being allowed to rest. In the late 1800s, at the height of the Industrial Revolution in the United States, the average American worked 12-hour days and seven-day weeks. Despite restrictions in some states, children as young as 5 or 6 worked in mills, factories and mines across the country, earning a fraction of their adult counterparts’ wages. Most workers of all ages often faced extremely unsafe working conditions, with insufficient access to fresh air, sanitary facilities and … CONTINUED

Three things the blessed man does every day

Posted on September 7, 2016 6:06 am by Sparta Live

By Derrick Coble, West Sparta Church of Christ

Leonardo da Vinci was a young artist during the Renaissance in Italy. On one occasion, he painted a beautiful portrait of a young child who appeared in the picture as an angel. He was so pleased with it that he kept it in his studio where he could look at it often. It would comfort his soul in sorrow or give him peace when angry. Years later, he wanted to paint a portrait of evil. He looked long and hard for the perfect model and found a man so scarred by sin and time that he was the exact … CONTINUED

How would you describe your ideal candidate?

Democratic Dialog, By Debra Wines

As we are getting closer to the November elections, you may have already chosen the candidate you will vote for, but do you have any idea how that person will vote on issues that will impact your life? I don’t expect any candidate to represent 100 percent of my needs and wants; at the same time I will vote for whatever candidate, I feel, is the most aligned with my priorities.

There isn’t any “perfect” candidate because every one of them should be a representative of a cross section of the population. Granted there are areas or districts that may represent a population … CONTINUED

Natural rights and man-made anti-rights, Part III

Posted on September 7, 2016 6:06 am by Sparta Live

Language of Liberty, By Publius Huldah

What happened to bring us where we are today – on the brink of social, moral, and financial collapse?

We forgot the Principle set forth in our Declaration that the sole purpose of civil government is to secure our Natural God-given rights by protecting us from those who seek to take these rights away from us. We were seduced and deceived into believing that civil government should 1) Provide for our needs; and 2) Protect us from the risks and uncertainties of Life.

The belief that government is responsible for all our needs is self-destructive. Historically, when this ideology has been implemented, … CONTINUED

A Hamilton County Sheriff’s deputy, who was once charged in White County, is now facing child sex charges once again, this time in Hamilton County.
