First Corinthians chapter 6 is our study tonight, 1 Corinthians chapter 6 – this is our fifteenth study, and we are beginning our reading in verse 12. We’re studying under the title ‘Christian Liberty And The Christian’s Purity’. Beginning to read at verse 12: “All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power. Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s”. [Excerpt]

Independence Day Poem
This poem was written to show how strong our country is and will always be as long as we continue to keep hold of the true values it was built on.
Destruction Is Our Strength
Crashing on to our weakened knees and pray.
Smoke fills the unstained air,
As our screams are drowned out
By the silence of the unknown.Remembered-not,
Are the gorgeous sun rays that warmed the earth,
Not the way the autumn breeze
Calmed the frigid sky.
We forget-not the way our lives were
R O C K E D,
S H A K E N
and D E S T R O Y E D
By the incompetence of crazed maniacs.
Our nation is scorned when the first tower falls.
S T U N N E D,
F R A N T I C
and left S P E E C H L E S S.
As the second plane collides
Into the little pride we have left,
Our mouths drop in disbelief.
All we can do is stand back
And watch while reality is stripped bare;
As hearts are demolished by every stone
That separates them for loved ones…
We are reborn into hell.
We have fallen a-long-side our monuments
And the nation’s pride is consumed by flames.
While our enemies cheer as debris hit the ground
And celebrate out blood stained streets.
We by the destruction of our nation
Are given the strength to fight back.

SONG: God Bless the USA© by lee Greenwood
Lady Liberty is a Democrat. How do I know? Only Democrats would say:
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me.
I life my lamp beside the Golden Door!”
