It's Time to Take Back West Louisville

By:  Bill Price
We all know the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, a sordid place where all types of evil took place, where people were robbed of their dignity and their moral compass by ungodly men who followed their lusts rather than God. When it comes to economic empowerment and business development, The West End has become its own Sodom and Gomorrah where corporate greed and a lack of social responsibility has become the norm rather than the exception. It doesn't happen in Hurstbourne, and it doesn't happen in other parts of Jefferson County. However, in West Louisville, we have businesses that have done little to endear themselves to the community. Yes, we may get a couple of minimum wage jobs out of the deal, but little else. These businesses come and they take and give little back. Where is the support for community programs? Where is the philanthropic arm for social change? Where are the stakeholders from these businesses working to help us transform our community?  Money goes out, but little remains in.
No community can survive when businesses come and take and give little back. When we will stop allowing outside businesses to come in and rob us our most precious resource and that is economic prosperity? When will we stop allowing businesses that don't care for us, sell to us? The bible says : "Wealth obtained by fraud dwindles, but the one who gathers by labor increases it."  The book of James put it this way: "Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty.  it is time for us to turn our backs on oppressive businesses who fail to become a part of our community. Not only should we turn back, let's not look back as we encourage a new era of community development where we attract and retain businesses that have the best interests of West Louisville at heart.

God The Father, Godly Fathers, and The God Fathers

By:  Min. Angela Lee Price

As we celebrate Father's Day on the Jesus Saves Social Network, we are discussing three categories of fathers, God the Father, Godly Fathers, and The God Fathers.  Join us in our discussions this week by commenting on one of these categories of fathers:
  1. God The Father                                                                                   Using the Word of God, provide examples of how God the Father was a great father to God, the Son. 
  2. Godly Fathers
    What is the difference between godly fathers and those who perpetrate in the spirit of  the movie "Scarface" and "The God Father?"  Give examples of godly fathers in your family, church and/or community. 
  3. The God Fathers
    What does God have to say to young fathers who have gotten caught up in the lifestyle of drugs, fast money, cars, women, and illegal commerce, i.e. to men who present themselves not at godly fathers but as gangsters or "God Fathers"? 
  4. Identify men or verses in the Bible that you would attribute to one of the three "father" categories.  For example, you can identify your favorite verse by or about God the Father, identify your favorite "godly father" or the most infamous father. 
Post your comments here or join our discussions on the Jesus Saves Social Network
We are grateful for fathers who know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and who realize that God's grace, full of mercy and justice, is the force that gives all of us life and men the opportunity to be fathers.
