An homage to spiritual mentors

By Debra Whittingon And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. Deuteronomy […]

Racino unhealthy for body, spirit

I’m opposed to the racetrack/casino being promoted by the Greater Tucumcari Economic Development Corp., the City Council and Quay County commissioners, who apparently view the racino as a regional economic panacea. As a minister of Christ, I primarily oppose gambling on moral as well as practical grounds. I believe it to be a sickness that […]

Giving credit where it’s due

By Leonard Lauriault Some interesting things happened in our neighborhood during or shortly after the recent snow storms. When I’d finished shoveling off our sidewalk after the first storm, one of my daughters cleaned off some of our neighbors’ walks. She didn’t have a suitable coat for such work so she wore my hooded jacket. […]

12/24 Letter to the editor

Regarding Ryn Gargulinski’s column of Dec. 17 (“Christmas spirit deserves revival”): This has to be the sickest, most demented thing I have ever read in the Quay County Sun. Yes, the Christmas Spirit does deserve revival but not in the way Gargulinski has portrayed it. Christmas is time to celebrate the birth of our Lord, […]

Examining unconditional eternal security

By Leonard Lauriault: QCS columnist Overheard once after a funeral: “He went to church when he was younger, so he’ll be alright.” Such statements are based in the un-Biblical philosophy that once one becomes a Christian, he cannot lose his salvation. John 10:28, 29 and Romans 8:38, 39 (read those verses) are commonly misused to […]

Leonard Lauriault Acts 18: 19 to 19: 7 describes how the church at Ephesus began. At first, Paul stayed only a short time, but he promised to return.
