All Eyes On You (NAPS)--Minute crystals of sil- icon carbide discovered in 1893 have led to the creation of moissanite, a jewel sparking a lot of interest among women today, and one that is now considered the "little black dress" of accessories. What attracts women to moissanite--named after its dis- coverer, Nobel Prize-winning French scientist Dr. Henri Moissan--is that when they wear it, they feel confident, smart and sexy.

The families ef eregene cnd Remde i Truth or Tradition ? "Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition'?" Matthew 15:3 Eternal Security #5 Once In Grace Always In Grace. Truth or Tradition? Can a Christian fall from grace? Can one who has been redeemed by the blood of Christ so sin as to be evrnally lost'? If Ye Forgive. Can on go to heaven with unforgiven sin? Jesus taught: "For if ye lorgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses" (Matthew 6:14-15). What if I don't forgive others? If ye Continue. Am I still a disciple of Jesus if I neglected The Word? Jesus said to those who believe on Him: "Ifye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:31-32). What if I don't continue in The Word? If We Faint Not. Will I reap an eternal reward,!f I become discouraged and quit'? Paul admonished the Galatian brethren: And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not" (Galatians 6:9). What if I faint? If Ye Do These Things. Will I still be in God's grace if I fail to grow spiritually? Peter admonishes: "And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness broth- erly kindness; and to byotherly kindness charity." And then he says: "For if ye do these things, ye shall never fall" (2 Peter 1:5-10). What ifI lhil to do those things? If We Walked In The Light. Can I walk in darkness and still be saved? John writes: "If we say they we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in i the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin" (1 John 1:6-7). What ifI stop walking in the light? Do I lose my freedom of choice when I become a Christian? What do you think. Once In Grace, Always In Grace.
