Carter Price’s Speech at Baccalaureate 2016
Rapid City Baccalaureate 2016
This was the first Rapid City Baccalaureate in over ten years. Though not well attended, the Black Hills Church was well represented as our Carter Price was one of the featured speakers and our Caleb Dennis was one of the musicians leading the group in praise. I had to choke…
Religion is broken. We all know it but few will admit it out loud. Religion is often about control of wealth, real-estate, and people. Religious folks are often petty, judgmental, arrogant, us-against-them, divisive, and self-serving, while the hurting just keep on hurting. People have been telling us how dangerous immorality is almost since the beginning time. It took the Carpenter to tell has how dangerous religion is.

I was so pleased to have the elusive Dan Green stand in for me while I was in DC a few weeks ago. Thanks Dan!
While at the Children’s Home yesterday, I caught this great moment of Tim doing what he does so well, using food to minister to people. Thanks Tim!
Boys to Men!

When you’re are tempted to scrap absolute moral truth and morally take the course of least resistance, just keep in mind — that at the very same moment that you jettison moral truth you are discarding the one foundation that gives you a voice of moral outrage against bigotry, hatred, dishonesty, and violence. If morality is relative then you may have a preference for love over hatred but you certainly have no grounds for calling hatred wrong. Taking the course of least resistance makes men and rivers crooked!

So often, believers in the Christ feel that our mission is to win arguments. As it turns out that couldn’t be further from the truth. Our task is to hold up Jesus, to glorify Him. I wanted to do something with this project that simply held people’s attention long enough to deliver the simple gospel (good news). By the way, regardless of what you may have heard, God isn’t bad news. He loves you not because of your race, intellect, creed, morality, performance, politics, or Bible knowledge. He loves you because of who He is. It starts with Him. He invented love and all love that exists issues from that source. He wrapped Himself in human skin and stepped into our three-dimensional little world to live the life you know you should be living and to die the death you know you deserve. And he is offering you credit for both right now. Do something with that if you haven’t. Pass it on if you have! Blessings.
