You can't go wrong by buying land i In the late 1970's I start- ed a business called "Trading Post Auction Co." I was auctioneer and I sold almost everything from A to Z. My favorite though was auctioning off real estate. I'd start by say- ing, "Folks you can't go wrong by buying land--it's something they're not making any more of. And the mail route and the school bus goes right by this property." I would usu- ally close by saying, "Last but not least, a couple of miles down the road you will find a good Bible believing church; so where do you wish to start the bidding?" I truly believed that the close proximity of a church would help sell the property and it often did. But it's so sad that just a few short years later that the mention of a church doesn't seem to interest many people. Now, at those real estate auctions, more folks would much rather hear the auc- tioneer saying, "There's a gambling casino or a night chib right around the cor- ner." People are swiftly forgetting God, We live in a great country but slowly and surely, God is getting pushed further and futher away. People need to turn back to God while they still have the time and opportu- nity to do so.
