BLACK ROCK – "In the spiritual realm, you are the one being hunted," evangelist Sam Moore of Bentonville told more than 200 gathered Sept. 30 for Bucks, Ducks and Faith at Mt. Vernon Baptist Church in Black Rock.
Comparing the activities of a deer hunter who attracts prey by putting out deer corn, Moore told men, women and children, "Don't eat the devil's corn," rather, to turn their lives over to Jesus Christ.
Just as a hunter who "misses his mark" with a gun or bow, our lives miss the mark and must be made right by the blood Jesus shed on the cross, he said.
"The entire human race has a terrible problem: sin," said Moore, adding that if a person hasn't accepted Jesus as their personal savior that they are already separated from God.
Quoting Matthew 7:14, the evangelist said the path to God is narrow and only a few find it.
"Jesus said we must be born again. We must be made right. That's why God sent His son," said Moore.
Urging attendees to make a decision for Jesus and not delay, Moore said, "The devil will throw out some corn to keep you from making a commitment."
He reiterated, "Don't eat the devil's corn!"
In all, 17 people made professions of faith in Jesus Christ at the event.
The Bucks, Ducks and Faith event included a free meal for all those attending, giveaways and praise and worship from the Mountain Home band, After Grace.
It was sponsored by the Back River Baptist Association and Mt. Vernon Baptist Church. Blake Shaw is pastor of Mt. Vernon Baptist.
