Keeping you updated Bella Vista ACC Political Signs Policy
Why all this 'Cotton' coddling for SCOTUS? If you have ever wondered if there would be dueling 'far-right' headlines in Arkansas -- we have had them the last few weeks.
Hyper-grace movement not in line with truth The hyper-grace movement has infiltrated many churches. This is a doctrine that justifies bad lifestyles, no matter how egregious. "God loves sinners. Sinners all go to heaven. Accept everyone." Hyper-grace does away with the need for personal responsibility, repentance before God, or being regenerated. It conflates the love of God, which is unalterable, with the standards of God, who eternally hates lying and evil. by Jackie Brooks

OPINION: 'What I know and don't know,' as '20 election nears There is a lot to know and a lot I don't know heading into the Nov. 3 General Election. by Jackie Brooks
OPINION: The case for God Every so often, someone confronts me demanding proof of God's existence. This is how I normally would reply: You say you are an atheist, have doubts, cannot prove the existence of God. Big deal! Do you really think you are unique or are you trying to shock people?
Mark your calendar As I write, we're 66 days away from the election. We're headed into a November to remember! Now, we're in a dismembered September. Will there be an October surprise? There is so much political division, uncivil accusations and media mistrust. Who do we believe? What's true? I've never seen America so splintered. Factions and forces are aligning that will affect our nation's future. What will be the outcome? On the religious front, events are set to happen that will force us to make important choices.
Rise and shine! Rise and shine!
