Book Review: “The Death of the Church Victorious,” by Ovid Need

The Death of the Church Victorious, by Pastor Ovid Need, is an exceptionally important book for our times, and especially for Bibb County. Two hundred years ago, a theological school of thinking, originally known as Darbyism, began to take hold in churches across American and Europe. Up to this time, these churches proclaimed a victorious

Book Review: “The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates,” by Matthew J. Trewhella

The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates is a very quick read, but an exceptionally potent book for our day. In this book, Trewhella explains a long-forgotten principle, once very important to maintaining freedom in the face of an overreaching civil government, called the doctrine of the lesser magistrate: The lesser magistrate doctrine declares that when

1 Timothy 2:1-2: Bibb County Prays

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. (1 Tim. 2:1-2) Based on this verse, Joshua Lambert has put together a

Bibb and Property Tax

In the Wednesday, September 23, 2015 issue of the Centreville Press, it was reported that “Bibb County has the second lowest property tax” in the United States, second only to Tunica, Mississippi.

The Bible is True for Us, Today!

Frequently, we read the Bible and agree with it. We read familiar verses like John 3:16, and believe them to be true, but we often forget that they apply to you and me, in 2015, in our county today. It is an interesting and profitable experiment to adjust some of the words in certain verses

The Redemption of Antioch

The other day, my wife and I were driving through Antioch on the way to visit some friends. Our trek was from Brierfield to West Blocton, and though I did not need to drive through Antioch, I specifically went that route because I wanted to see the geography in early spring. I love south-central Bibb

Psalm 1 and Bibb County, Part 3: The Rule of Righteousness

Recently, we have been going through a study on Psalm 1 and its meaning for Bibb county. In the first paper, we looked at what this Psalm said about God; in the second, we looked at our duties as men and women. In this third paper, we will look at what this passage says about

“Why Not Freedom?” Conference MP3s

In October 2014, The Wallace Group hosted a private conference in Brierfield addressing our duties to actively evangelize Bibb County. The theme of the conference was Let’s Discuss: Why Not Freedom? Our guest speaker was Tim Yarbough. The mp3s from the conference are now available to download. If you care about the future of Bibb

Who’s in Control: God or Satan?

In my opinion, Satan gets way too much credit. Too often professing Christians will put the blame on Satan for just about anything they believe is negative. They treat him as if he’s in control of this world; indeed, as if he is more powerful than his Creator, God the Father. I believe this is
