The Christian Post reports that a North Carolina pastor and his son were recently arrested for allegedly turning the South Side Baptist Church in Lexington into a drug house. The church had been shuttered since the COVID-19 pandemic.
Investigators arrested Pastor Josh Price (50) and his son Matthew Price (28) last week, charging them with manufacturing and trafficking of marijuana, possession with intent to sell and deliver THC wax, and three counts of felony maintaining a dwelling, among other charges.

My brothers and sisters, this situation serves as a reminder to always listen to the voice of your conscience, the Holy Spirit, as the word of God makes it clear that the evil one comes to steal, kill and destroy, imitating the things of God, luring even the elect in Christ!
Matthew 7:15-20 (NKJV)
You Will Know Them by Their Fruits
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore[,] by their fruits you will know them.”
Matthew 24:24 (NKJV)
“For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”
Praise Jesus forevermore!
