The Breastplate of Righteousness

Drove to Sarepta for morning services and stayed in the guest house of Milton and his extended family.. Rested well the last 2 days. Anxious to share tomorrow.

Two of our childen, Alex and Jefferson, attend Cook Baptist so we hope to see them at Cook Baptist in Ruston tomorrow night.

Wednesday we will be in the Hoover, Al area so if anyone near there wants to see the power point, email me.

Do you know that there are more than 3,000,000 pornographic sites on the (internet) web? 89% of porn is created in the U.S. $2.84 billion in revenue was generated from U.S. porn sites in 2006 Worldwide is $12 billion. $89/second is spent on porn 72% of porn viewers are men 260 new porn sites go online daily. Over 50% of PASTORS have said they watched some type of pornography.

Satan is truly attempting to stab us in our heart and make us dead spiritually. Failure to live a righteous life is the most common method in which demons gain access to our minds and our relationships.

Pornography should be part of the old self. The problem is that when we get saved and are “new creatures” in Christ that old self wants to tag along. Someone said that we Chrisitans are constantly at war with ourselves. I fight doing what is right every day of my life. Anger, worry, discouragement are too often my companions.

Here is a list of daggers Satan uses to attack our hearts: Lies, anger, stealing,bitterness, rage, slander, sexual immorality and thoughts, greed and the list goes on. Galatians 5 gives us an even longer list of the sins in our heart.

I suppose the most difficult request of God in all the Bible to me personally is “BE HOLY AS I AM HOLY”.
