The Way to Heavenby Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
Perhaps you have heard the story of the man who inquired from a mountaineer the way to a certain destination.The mountaineer stuttered and stammered and finally said: “You can’t get there from here.”We may smile at this, but the results would be even more amusing — and sad — were we to ask the average person on the street the way to heaven.What is the way to heaven? It is interesting to read in God’s Word what many think about this. In Proverbs 14:12 we read:“There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”What are some of these “ways” that “seem right” to men, leading them to hope for heaven? Joining a church? Being baptized? Doing one’s best? Keep-ing the Ten Commandments? Loving one’s neighbor as himself? These are a few of the ways that men follow, hoping to gain eternal life, but they allcome under one heading: “Do good.”But what do the Scriptures say about this? In the Gospel according to John there are recorded for us seven “I ams,” which the Lord Jesus Christ usedin speaking of Himself.One of these is found in John 14:6:“I am the way, the truth and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by Me.”This passage has a double significance, since it was not only the declaration of the Lord Jesus Christ, but at the same time a declaration of the divine-ly inspired Scriptures. From this verse we learn not only that Jesus is the only way to the Father, but also that He is “the truth” to be believed and trust-ed in. Thus we can believe the Lord Jesus when He claims to be the way to heaven.But according to this passage He is also “the life.” As we place our faith in Him as the One who died on the cross for us, we receive eternal life. “Hedied that we might live.”
Two Minutes With the Bible 
“Then God said, ‘Let us makehumankind in our image, accord-ing to our likeness….’So God cre-ated humankind in his image, inthe image of God he created them;male and female he createdthem…. God saw everything thathe had made, and indeed it wasvery good!” (Genesis 1:26a, 27,31a)
“God saw everything that hehad made, and indeed it was verygood!” Not many years ago therewas a bumper sticker that read“God don’t make no junk!” Howtrue. Each man and woman, boyand girl is made in the image of God. Every person made by theCreator’s hand is a Masterpiece,meticulously knit together onecell at a time until “ta-da!!!”another Masterpiece from theMaster’s hands. Just as God cre-ated the heavens and the earth,the sky, the stars, the planets,the sun and moon, the animals,insects, fish in the sea, the firsthuman beings and called them“very good,” God still calls whathe has created and continues tocreate, “very good” today. Thetrouble is, we in our sinful naturedon’t know how to be good stew-ards of God’s blessings and some-times it is abhorrent the way wetreat one another.Every one of us, in some way orother, has gone through periodsof good natured teasing frompeers. But, when the teasingbecomes “name-calling,” “de-meaning someone by attackingtheir character,” or seeking to“ruin someone’s reputation,”because we think that it’s “fun,”then the teasing becomes “bully-ing.” Someone who we think“talks funny,” “looks different,”“wears glasses,” or who might beslow in school, or comes from a“poor family,” usually gets “bul-lied.” What happens is that weend up with serious situations,like Columbine High School a fewyears ago. Two high school boyswho were bullied because theywere “different” took matters intotheir own hands and shot andkilled many classmates beforeturning the weapons on them-selves.Today, “bullying” or “hazing” insome places has become evenmore extreme through “texting.”The old saying “sticks and stoneswill break by bones, but wordswill never hurt me,” is wrong — in fact, it’s a lie. Words do hurt.Perhaps bullies themselves are“bullied” at home by a parent oran older sibling, so in order tohave “power” and “control” atschool, someone is bullied. Youdon’t have to physically hurtsomebody in order to hurt some-body. Physical cuts, bumps andbruises will heal, but the bully-ing, the verbal abuse that some of us think is “funny” or “cute,” thathurt goes a lot deeper. It touchesthe “spirit,” the “soul.” Yes, that’sright, the person you bully, made just like you, that adult, thatteenager, that child, was madein God’s image. That person hasa physical body and also a “spir-it” a “soul.” You want to talkabout breaking the command-ment, “you shall not kill,” — if you bully a person you are grad-ually killing that person, wholike you, was made in “theimage of God,” who God calls“very good.” You are destroyingthat person’s character, person-ality. The victims of bullyingand the bullies who themselvesare victims, need help. Bullyingdoesn’t just happen in schoolsand on the playground with thekids, but sometimes at work-places. Adults may be bullied byother adults, too. All schoolsand communities face the “bul-lying” problem. If it’s a majorproblem in our community andour schools, it’s time we dosomething about it. Let’s stopbeating one another up, physi-cally and verbally. That’s notwhy God created us.Instead, let’s “do justice.”That’s why God created us.“Doing justice” is the first of three requirements, if we are tobe the people who God createdus to be. Micah 6:8 says it well:”…and what does the Lordrequire of you but to do justice,and to love kindness, and towalk humbly with your God.”In Christ’s love,Pastor Rick Hazen

Whooping cough cases rise;parents urged to immunize kids
Whooping cough cases are onthe rise and a state health officialis urging parents to make suretheir children are immunized.Nationally, 48 states and Wash-ington DC have reported increasesin whooping cough, also known aspertussis, through September. InSouth Dakota, cases are up 87 per-cent over the five-year median,with 56 cases reported as of Octo-ber 3. Most of those cases are inschool-age children and resultfrom an outbreak in a school set-ting.Neighboring Minnesotareports nearly 4,000 pertussiscases, the most since 1943, whileIowa reports more than 1,100cases this year.“Pertussis causes uncontrol-lable coughing, rib fractures,pneumonia, loss of consciousnessand even death,” said Colleen Win-ter, Director of Health and MedicalServices, Department of Health.“Very young children are at high-est risk, with two-thirds of kidsunder age one who get it needinghospitalization.”The department provides freepertussis vaccine for children,with doses recommended at twomonths, four months, six months,15-18 months, and four-six years.Children need the complete seriesto be fully protected. Aboosterdose is also recommended at 11-12years as immunity begins to wane.The department provides thatbooster dose free as well.Winter said the booster doseprotects middle school studentsfrom the disease and increases thering of protection around vulnera-ble infants. Because whoopingcough is highly contagious andspreads easily in the school set-ting, immunizing the older agegroup also helps decrease the like-lihood of outbreaks.Parents can contact their usualvaccine provider to request thevaccine. Some schools will also bescheduling clinics to offer thewhooping cough vaccine alongwith the seasonal flu vaccine.
