August 2013

This issue of JOY! carries a few articles that once again remind us about the failing morals and evil that we are facing in society today. This leads me to ask: “How long can we Christians sit back and do nothing about it?” When will we stop tolerating the moral degradation taking place? What will it take to get us to react? Are we losing our saltiness? Is it not time to examine ourselves and our roles as custodians of the Word of God? Are we really allowing the Word to penetrate our hearts and minds?KEY ARTICLES IN THIS ISSUE:
