SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON/Getting the message/Matthew 21:12-17
In verse 12 we are told that after Jesus made his triumphal entry into Jerusalem, he entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and benches of those selling doves. Jesus gives us a couple of reasons for his intense action. One reason is that they had made the temple into a "den of robbers." Pilgrims coming from all over Israel and other lands needed sacrifices to offer. The sacrifices needed to be approved by the temple priests. It was convenient to wait until arriving in Jerusalem to purchase an animal. Buying and selling took place in the Gentile area of the temple precincts.

LOWRY/Kerry's failed Israeli policy
If an Israeli high-level official were caught on a hot mic candidly commenting on Secretary of State John Kerry's ill-fated act of Israel-Hamas peacemaking, he might call it "a hell of a diplomatic foray."

PERRY/The Neshoba speeches
Political speaking at the Neshoba County Fair closes out on Thursday (July 31) when Gov. Phil Bryant takes the stage around 10:40am. The fewer than two hours of speaking from local to statewide officials dominates press coverage at the Fair, but often receives scant attention from many Fairgoers despite the time and money invested by various campaigns for their candidate's ten minute opportunity.

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON/Rev. Donald Caviness
"There were no blacksmiths in the land of Israel in those days. The Philistines wouldn't allow them for fear they would make swords and spears for the Hebrews. So whenever the Israelites needed to sharpen their plowshares, picks, axes, or sickles, they had to take them to a Philistine blacksmith. (The schedule of charges was as follows: a quarter of an ounce of silver for sharpening a plowshare or a pick, and an eighth of an ounce for sharpening an ax, or an ox goad.) So none of the people of Israel had a sword or spear, except for Saul and Jonathan." (1 Samuel 13:19-22)

EDITORIAL/McDaniel's election ruse
Chris McDaniel is demanding access to personal voter information such as Social Security numbers and dates of birth state law forbids him to have, and he's running over good people like Neshoba County Circuit Clerk Patti Duncan Lee to get his way.
