A View from the Cornerstone

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. (Isa 28:16)

I decided to create this blog in order to provide a view of the current culture and the daily events in our modern times. This is not a blog of my views but a blog based on God’s word.
2 Peter 1:3 Reminds us that God has given unto us “all things that pertain unto life and godliness” this doesn’t come through a coffee shop conversation, a close friend or a TV talk show. This comes through “the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.
We want to build on a foundation that is a biblical one, with Jesus as the cornerstone. This blog will look at the issues of our day from a position atop a foundation that has already been laid, that which is Jesus Christ. My prayer is that through this blog you will be to able to see the issues of this day in light of the scripture as opposed to the scripture in light of this world. Come on up, the view is divine..

Yours in Christ,
Pastor Albert Cross

Evidence or Declaration?

As I stood this morning looking into the sky around 5:30 am, I gazed at the moon and the stars in the still dark sky. I said to myself “thank you God”. Somewhere in the world I am sure there must have been someone else gazing into the sky and saying “thank...

Is there hope for Louisville’s West End?

The west end of Louisville is not just a place across the river from me here in New Albany. It is the end of town where I grew up. The landscape is much different than when I grew up there. Shootings were not that common. Drugs were “done” or “dealt” in...
