Boones Creek Baptist Association Serving, Encouraging and Supporting Christs Churches

Bro. John Ryder-Director of Missions Angel Kane, Secretary Floyd & Gale Holbrook-Camp Manager Office (859) 744-0037 Fax (859) 744-1069 E-mail: Printed Oct. 2012, Volume 45, issue 10 Deadline for next Issue: Nov.15, 2012

A Note to you, -Remember in prayer and please attend our remaining Association Revival in October. It is as follows: October 22-26 at Jeffersonville Baptist Church in Jeffersonville, pastors from the Irvine area will be preaching each night at 7PM. -The next executive board meeting and Baptist Womens day of prayer will be held at Heritage Baptist Church in Winchester on November 5 at 7PM. - Remember to vote November 6, 2012. Ronald Reagan said, "If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under." Food For Thought: Prov 23:29-35 Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has contentions? Who has complaints? Who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of eyes? 30 Those who linger long at the wine, Those who go in search of mixed wine. 31 Do not look on the wine when it is red, When it sparkles in the cup, When it swirls around smoothly; 32 At the last it bites like a serpent, And stings like a viper. 33 Your eyes will see strange things, And your heart will utter perverse things. 34 Yes, you will be like one who lies down in the midst of the sea, Or like one who lies at the top of the mast, saying: 35 "They have struck me, but I was not hurt; They have beaten me, but I did not feel it. When shall I awake, that I may seek another drink?" Bro. Kevin Burden wrote: We have a drug problem in the U.S. We could talk about: cocaine, marijuana, meth, or heroine. Americas #1 problem drug is not any of these illegal substances, but a legal drug called ALCOHOL. Alcohol on College Campuses: A campus rape is reported every 21 hours, which translates into 6,000 rapes each year nationwide. Alcohol is implicated in 90% of all campus rapes. Sixty percent of all college women diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease were drunk at the time they were infected. More than 1,700 college students in the U.S. are killed each year as a result of alcohol-related injuries. Alcohol & Teens: Alcohol is a leading cause of death among teenagers. It contributes substantially to teenage automobile accidents, traumatic injuries, suicide, date rape, and family and school problems. Every day more than 11,000 American youth between the age of 12 to 20 try alcohol for the first time. Alcohol is the most used and abused drug among Americas teenagers. According to a national survey, nearly one third of all high school students reported participating in hazardous drinking (5+ drinks in one setting). Young people who begin drinking before age 15 are four times more likely to develop alcoholism. 1. Most deaths Alcohol causes more deaths than any other drug. Over 55% of highway deaths are alcohol related. It causes heart, liver and kidney disease, and deadly addictions. 2. Most addictions There are over 17 million alcoholics in America today. They, by far, outnumber the addicts of any other drug. 3. Most misery Think of the death, disability, psychosis, addiction. It produces more misery than any other drug on earth. Chinese proverb, first the man takes a drink, then the drink takes a drink, and then the drink takes the man. Yours in Christ,

Bro. John Ryder
