Porn destroys people, families, churches 

Pornography is a much greater problem than we are willing to admit. David Roach, news correspondent for Baptist Press, has given us an overview of the damage inflicted by the plague of porn on vital relationships, especially marriages. Pastors cannot ignore the fact that many people in our worship services are in bondage to infectious porn. The problem will not go away. It must be confronted head-on. This story on BRnow.org will point you in the right direction.

Last week Newsweek (in its first print edition in two years) published an irreverent attack on Christianity. Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, gave a stinging response to the uninformed management of Newsweek. Every Christian should read this informative article.

Does your church family know that the Biblical Recorder is their trusted news and information source? People need to know! They need to know that we are here with the print edition – the Biblical Recorder – and one of the most visited Baptist news websites in the world, BRnow.org. And all of it belongs to North Carolina Baptists.

Let us serve you and your church by giving you the information you need to know.

Pray for the newly elected officials at every level – local, state and national – as they begin their term of service this week. Prayer has more power than complaining.
