Board upholds deputy's firing


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
By a 3-0 vote, an Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO)
appeals board voted to uphold
Sheriff Paul May's firing of former
deputy Kenneth Sarros.
Sarros, 30, and former deputy
Eddie Baker, were fired Jan. 26,
2007, amid allegations they had
sex with a 22-year-old Okee-
chobee woman at her home
while they were on duty.
While Baker, 41, did not

oppose his termination, Sarros
requested a hearing before the
OCSO Career Service Appeals
Board. The 4-hour, 15-minute,
hearing was held Thursday, Feb.
22, in a courtroom in the Okee-
chobee County Judicial Center.
This was the first time that the
appeals board has been used
since its inception on July 1,2006.
Following the hearing, the
three members of the appeals
board Lieutenant Billy
Markham, Jail Administrator Ron-
nie White and Detective Sergeant


Jimmy Mills -, met and voted to
uphold the sheriff's decision.
Sgt. Mills was selected to sit on
the boardT by Sarros, while Mr.
White was chosen by Sheriff May.
Lt. Markham was picked to over-
see the hearing and served as the
board's chairperson.
An OCSO memo from the
board to Sheriff May stated: "The
reports and evidence were
reviewed, along with the testi-
monies of the witnesses. It is the
unanimous decision of the board
that Kenneth Sarros did not pro-

The Dixon Hendry campus of Indian River Community College (IRCC) will see many
changes in the coming year. The school will soon undergo new additions and renova-
tions, in addition to accepting students into its new baccalaureate program in the spring
of 2008.

IRCC to offer degree programs


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
On Feb. 20, the Florida Board
of Education approved Indian
River Community College's
(IRCC) proposals to offer bache-
lor degree programs in work-
force fields with critical employ-
ee shortages.
The areas include teacher
education in middle and high
school math and science, excep-
tional student education, nursing
and organizational manage-
ment.
IRCC will launch the new
bachelor degree programs
beginning in January 2008.
"The approval of workforce-
related bachelor degree pro-
grams at IRCC represents a major
step forward in meeting our
region's critical need for more
teachers, nurses and managers
in technical and public service
fields, and we are excited to be
able to offer these expanded edu-
cational opportunitiesto Trea-
sure Coast residents," stated Dr.
Edwin R. Massey, IRCC president.
"We worked on this proposal for
several months. Students, adults
and businesses responded to our
community survey. The results of

cation, nursing and organizational management begin-
ning in January 2008. Administrators and employees of
the local school have worked with numerous students to
help find ways for them to attend college.


this needs assessment strongly
demonstrated the demand for
additional four-year degree pro-
grams in our area and a very high
level of need for all seven bac-
calaureate programs.

start new program


By Victoria Hannon
Okeechobee News
In the last two weeks the
Okeechobee Schools Food Ser-
vice Department has begun to
install a new system into all dis-
trict schools.
The new system, called
PCS/Revenue Control Systems, is
a point-of-sale system that will
simplify the activities of feeding
the 7,212 students each school
day.
The installation of the system
began Feb. 12 with Okeechobee
High School and the Freshmen
Campus. The installation then
continued to the middle schools
and began in the elementary
schools on Feb. 22.
"Things are going quickly at
the elementary schools," said
head. of Food Services Michelle
Perkins. "We decided not to item-
ize (at the elementary schools)


just yet. We are trying to keep the
changes gradual and trying to
mirror the old system.
"We expect to have the sys-
tem fully implemented by Feb.
28," continued Ms. Perkins.
"Once we are fully implemented,
we will have a fully automated
system that links all of the schools
to our office."
The new system will allow
students visiting other schools
throughout the county to have
access to the same accounts that
they use at their school.
"Say that a student at the
Freshmen Campus is in ROTC
and eats breakfast at the high
school," Ms. Perkins explained.
"The girls at the high school
lunchroom can pull up the stu-
dent's account at the Freshmen
Campus and deduct the meal
from there. The students will only

Office Manual of Rules and Regu-
lations..." .
The memo then lists the viola-
tions as conduct unbecoming a
deputy sheriff, false statement or
report to a superior officer and
members to be truthful, which
means that he was untruthful.
OCSO paperwork indicates

Sheriff May said Friday after-
noon that his office is finished with

ment certifications of Sarros and
Baker. If the state does that, it could
put an end to their law enforce-
ment careers.
According to statements by
OCSO Detective Sergeant M.D.
Faulkner and the testimony of wit-
nesses, both Sarros and Baker
were on duty at the same time on
Jan. 3,2007.
Sgt. Faulkner not only handled
the department's internal investiga-
tion of the incident, but also pre-
sented the case for the sheriff's
office. Since this was not a court of
law, Sarros put on his own case.
However, he was assisted by attor-
ney Robert Hagaman.
Sgt. Faulkner and witnesses
called to the stand stated that both
Sarros and Baker entered Ms.
Compton's home and followed her
to her bedroom at the back of the
house around 2:34 a.m. on Jan. 3.

providing these new programs is a
natural progression. As our region
evolves into the Research Coast, it
is even more important that the
residents of our region have access
to education which will prepare
them for 21st Century careers," he
added.
IRCC's bachelor degree propos-
al was supported by strong com-
munity demand, reinforced by
regional labor market data high-
lighting the need for expanded
baccalaureate options in the Trea-
sure Coast region. A community-
wide needs survey generated an
exceptional 30 percent response
rate, and signaled the intensity of
interest in the new degree pro-
grams. About 90 percent of the,
3,050 respondents indicated they
would be "very interested" or
"interested" in enrolling in a bache-
lor's degree program at IRCC.
Over 165 area employers, repre-
senting about 68,000 employees,
also affirmed the need for expand-
ed bachelor degree programs, with
92 percent of employers indicating
a desire to hire more bachelors-
degree employees if they were
available.
Both the IRCC Board of Trustees
and IRCC Student Government
Association adopted unanimous
resolutions in support of expanded
bachelor's degrees. Additionally,
more than 60 area employers,
including the Regional Workforce
Development Board, area eco-
nomic development agencies,

on a drainage plan, which was one
of the vision priorities of the report.
He also noted the need to enlarge
the tax base to bring in more rev-
enues.
There was some discussion of
the importance iof education and
training to develop aworkforce.
"To be economically viable
you've got to have an educated
workforce," was the opinion of Mr.
Burroughs.
Mr. Domer noted that some of
the diversity in the Okeechobee
workforce was brought about by
the complexity of agriculture.;
Mr. Burroughs said the empha-
sis should be on planning, eco-
nomic development and educa-
tion.

The new system, once it is :up
and running, also allows parents to
go on-line and deposit money, as
well as allowing them to look up
exactly what their child bought to
eat on any given day.
Parental concerns are not the
only reasons that schools have
started to itemize. The USDA
requires that school systems
receiving government funding can


While he was in the room, testi-
fied Baker, Sarros and the woman
had sex. When Sarros left the
room, Baker then had sex with the
woman.
"I was pretty drunk," Ms. Comp-
ton told Sgt. Faulkner while on the
witness stand. '
She also stated that Baker want-
ed to keep his friend Sarros "out of
this."
Prior to Ms. Compton taking the
stand, the appeals board heard tes-
timony from Casey Johnson, 26,
who was a roommate of Ms.
Compton's and was on the couch
when the deputies entered the
home.
As they made their way to the
bedroom, they passed Mr. Casey
who testified that there was a "line"
of crystal methamphetamine on
the table in front of him. It was not
made clear at the hearing if either
deputy actually saw the meth.
Mr. Johnson said a friend of his
had left the meth for him, but
added that he did not use it and
that he was sober.


chambers of commerce, hospitals,
law enforcement agencies, finan-
cial institutions, technology firms
and businesses wrote letters in
support of IRCC's proposal.
Florida statutes require that
community colleges demonstrate
strong regional need, demand and
institutional capacity in order to be
approved to offer bachelor degree
programs. Proposals submitted by
community colleges are subject to
a rigorous approval process,
including review by Florida Depart-
ment of Education analysts and
objective examiners-from several
out-of-state colleges.
"I can't say enough about
Phoebe Raulerson," said Dr.
Massey. "She is always a fair and
open person. She understands
what it would mean to our district
to have this program.
"She did an outstanding job
representing our district to get this
program approved. She has always
wanted to provide every possible
opportunity for kids and adults to
continue their education. This is
just another way she has shown
her dedication to our communi-
ties," he continued.
The Bachelor degree programs
to be offered by IRCC target state
and regional shortages of teachers,
nurses and managers in applied
science fields such as public safety,
health care and organizational
management.
The unmet demand for middle
and high school math and science
teachers and exceptional student
education (ESE) teachers is espe-
cially critical, with no complete
programs in these fields currently
available on the Treasure'Coast.


Mr. Brandel touched on the
need for avocational school.
Mr. Domer noted that if there
was an abundance of qualified
employees industry would come.
He expressed a desire to see more
trade courses at the high school
level.
Commissioner Elvie Posey
mentioned the need for low cost
housing.
Mr. Domer said that there are
other things to be looked at besides
salary in considering the attractive-
ness of an industry to employees.
He mentioned the importance of
such perks as health insurance and
a retirement plan.
Mr. Burroughs commended Mr.
Royce for recommending various
pieces of property in the county as
potential sites for new industry.
County attorney John Cassels
mentioned the importance of code
enforcement. He noted that in the


provide proof of what happened to
all food products ordered by a par-
ticular school.
"The new system generates a
report showing each recipe used
that day and how much of each
ingredient was planned, ordered,
prepped and served," stated Ms.
Perkins. "The old system was pur-
chased in 1979 and had fewer
capabilities than the new one. This
system puts less work on the
employees."
The new system, district wide,
costs less than $107,000. Funds
were provided exclusively by the
Department of Food Services.


He also testified that Baker
introduced himself to Johnson and
that the ex-deputy gave him his
business card.
"He said to call him if I ever
needed help," Mr. Johnson testi-
fied.
Johnson also testified that he
has been in trouble with the law
before.
During questioning Sarros
asked Mr. Johnson why he didn't
immediately tell investigators that
the deputies had been in the
house.
"Because I didn't want to ruin
your lives," he said.
Further testimony indicated that
all the parties involved took a Com-
puter Voice Stress Analysis (CVSA)
test, which was given by Sergeant
Kimberly Hill of the Glades County
Sheriff's Office (GCSO).
Sgt. Hill testified that once she
had examined the charts she then
did a "cold call," which means the
charts were sent to another certi-
fied examiner who has no knowl-
edge of the case or the questions


The IRCC Bachelor of Science
degree in Education is designed to
fill this gap by specifically preparing
additional teachers for middle and
high school math, science and
ESE.
"We are so excited about
IRCC's announcement to provide
bachelor degree programs," stated
Dr. Patricia Cooper, Okeechobee
County superintendent of schools.
"What a wonderful opportunity for
our students. It will increase oppor-
tunities for our local population.
This just enhances our already
wonderful relationship with Indian
River Community College. Once
again, Sam Smith, Ed Massey and
Mary Locke have extended their
hands to help our community. I am
proud to say that I am an alumna of
Indian River Community College."
. Area hospitals and health care
facilities have also expresses a
strong need for additional nurses
with bachelor degrees. All seven
area hospitals have actively
encouraged IRCC to initiate a Bach-
elor of Science degree in Nursing
(BSN) program to address a
demand for managerial-level nurs-
es fueled by surging population
growth and an increasingly com-
plex health care environment.
IRCC's BSN program will pro-
vide expanded opportunities to
obtain this credential locally.
"This will help our hospital
quite a bit," stated William Casian,
marketing and public relations
director of Raulerson Hospital. "It
will allow for higher education and
allow our nurses to move up a step
in their educations. It will also
encourage youngsters to get a four-
year degree. They will be able to

Bill Selmi has been hearing code

"We are strategically located,
development has to come on our
terms," asserted Mr. Cassels
"One of the things I think that
quality firms would be looking for
is stable government," said Mr.
Domer.
Even though impact fees have
been talked about a lot recently as
a means to improve the infrastruc-
ture, Mr. Cassels reminded the
group that impact fees only pay for
30 percent of a capital project and
that the other 70 percent must
come from other sources.
Mr. Royce noted that while resi-
dential development does not pay
for itself, it is still a necessary com-
ponent of economic growth. He
remarked that there is not much


"We are totally self-supportive,"
said Ms. Perkins. "We pay for every-
thing related to our department
with food district funds. The USDA
provides so many commodities per
student depending on if they have
free, reduced, or full pay lunch."
One of the problems facing the
school lunch system is students
allowing their friends to use their
accounts.
"If that kind of thing goes on,
the USDA could pull that funding,"
said Ms. Perkins.
To curb that problem the stu-
dent's ID is used to ensure that the
person using an account is actually


asked. This second examiner then
studied the charts to determine if
there was any deception.
"The cold call agreed with my
findings," she testified, adding that
the second examiner had no prob-
lems reading the charts.
Her findings were the same as
the second examiner's findings:
Baker, Ms. Compton and Mr. John-
son showed no deception. Howev-
er, Sarros did show deception, she
told Sgt. Faulkner.
Sarros had been with the
department since Sept. 20, 1999,
when he was hired as a corrections
officer in the Okeechobee County
Jail. He then joined the OCSO road
patrol division in September of
2004.
Baker was hired as a correc-
tions officer at the county jail on
Jan. 12, 2001. He became a mem-
ber of the OCSO road patrol on
June 23, 2003.

live at home and still obtain their
education. A bachelor's degree is a
good piece of paper to have, no
matter what field it's in or where
you go. We, here at Raulerson Hos-
pital, are very committed to educa-
tion. We provide a great deal of
scholarships to local graduates."
The thousands of IRCC gradu-
ates who have earned a career-ori-
ented Associate in Science or Asso-
ciate in Applied Science technical
degree have had very limited local
options to continue their education
to a four-year degree. To provide a
streamlined baccalaureate path for
these students, IRCC is now
approved to offer a Bachelor of
Applied Science degree in Organi-
zational Management with special-
izations in Organizational Manage-
ment, Public Safety Administration
and Health Care Management.
"The next step is to expand our
accreditation to encompass our
new programs, and we look for-
ward to enrolling our first bache-
lor's degree class in spring term
2008," stated Dr. Mary G. Locke,
IRCC vice president of instructional
services. "We will be finalizing our
curriculum, scheduling classes and
pre-registering students over the
next several months, and we
encourage anyone who is interest-
ed to contact IRCC to submit their
application." Individuals interested
in the IRCC bachelor degree pro-
grams should call the IRCC call

mation.

tion in the county to be used in
developing impact fee schedules.
Mr. Long stated that lack of
money for training is not a problem
for county employees. The prob-
lem, he said, is that county employ-
ees are swamped with day in and
day out business and routine
administration. He added they did
as much as they could based on
priorities.
The group discussed the need
for a new county administration
building. It was noted that the pres-
ent administration building makes
outsiders think the county doesn't
think much of its employees.
Since the meeting was a work-
shop, no formal actions could be
taken.

their ID, the food service workers
can pull up the student's account
using either their student ID or their
initials and a picture of the student

If the students have their ID and
money on their account then the
new system significantly cuts the
time that it takes to process each
student.

healthy, good food gets into kids in
a timely manner," said Ms. Perkins.
"If not, then we have not met our

ing e-mail to okeenews@newszap.com. You can also mail submis-
sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
NOT EXCITED: This is in response to "Don't resent money" in the
Friday Speak Out. I am so sick of hearing that. You know, in the last six
years I have gotten one, .50-cent raise. So excuse me if I don't get all
excited over all that moneyyou all bring in.
GET THE FACTS: I think that people need to read the paper more
often and not just believe what information they get from websites or
word of mouth, no matter how reliable the source may seem. Infor-
mation that is written in the stories has back up from the city meetings
and their documents that are public record at city hall. Anyone who
clearly wants to make an educated decision on whether a develop-
ment will be appropriate should first get the true information. The alle-
gation that the new development will look like barracks, for instance,
just because a black and white drawing that has no architectural value
in it looks like barracks to you, does not mean that the development is
going to resemble army barracks. I personally have seen some of the
architectural designs that the concretables are capable of and they are
nicer than a lot of the houses within that area.
METH: As a homeowner in southwest Okeechobee, I can say
unequivocally that the crime has gotten progressively worse over the
last few years due in large part to the increasing popularity and
affordability of meth. I have personally known people that got involved
with it and it has turned their world upside down. Their families have
told me that it is every bit as addictive as crack cocaine.
DESIGNS NOT FINISHED: Architectural design for the proposed
development have not been released or even conceptualized at this
point. The developer has stated, however, that they are willing to make
them look like whatever they want them to look like they being the
city. Also, if they are to be sold, not rented, people who can afford the
townhouses should be able to afford cars as they will also have a
garage. In addition, it is hearsay that brought up all the racist issues
that started all the problems. From what the reality looks like, there are
many locals who are currently working or in the process of applying
for a job at the concrete housing plant or even currently being trained
in the West Palm Beach facility. The idea that the new development is
going to look like barracks comes from the racist comments made be
citizens at the council meetings. This has nothing to do with the devel-
opment. And to address the issue of more than one family living within
a unit, again they are being sold not rented. Therefore if someone
wants to buy a unit on their own and allow someone to live with them,
they have every right to do so. That is why they call it America.

JUSTASKETCH: Regarding the concrete housing, maybe the draw-
ing that was given out was just to show the placement on the. lots
when they were talking to the city about zoning. The drawings are
pretty sketchy. Since they want to produce and sell these houses, sure-
ly they will make them look nice so potential buyers would be favor-
ably impressed.

REUNION PLANS: Just wanting to know if there is anything being
planned for the Class of 98 this year? I haven't seen anything posted in
the paper.

NEWCOMERS: This is about the article about rude northerners. I
am a southerner. I've been here for a very long time and I've met my
share of rude southerners too. There are rude southerners. There are
rude northerners. There are rude westerners. If you really want to find
rude people, go to Iraq and Iran. Jesus commanded us to love our
neighbors as he loved us and if you don't do that, I don't care where
you're from, you're the one with the problem. If somebody gets
bumped in a grocery store by a cart big deal. If that's the worst thing
that happened to you in a week you ought to be thankful. A lot worse
things are happening to people all around you. So get over it. Further-
more, your ancestors aren't from down here unless you are a Semi-
nole or a Spaniard.

CIVIL WAR IS OVER: This is for the person who complained about
the grocery store and the way the northern visitors drive. Quit fighting
the Civil War. It's over. The North won. You are lucky you have an auto-
mobile because if the South had won you would still be riding a crack-
er pony going 3 mph, not 10. So thank your lucky stars that the North
did win and you have those things and quit complaining about north-
erners they support your economy here.
ELECTION: This is about all the candidates who are running for
president. They all need to go home. It's still over 10 months away
from election. We don't need to be watching them for the next 10
months spitting on each other, crawling around in the mud and acting
like a bunch of crazed idiots.

Lady Brahmans trample Lady Titans 21-0


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
In a game that was ended in
the fifth inning, the Lady Brahman
softball team trampled the Lady
Titans of Treasure Coast High
School 21-0 Wednesday evening
at Lady Brahman Field.
By the end of the first inning,
the Lady Brahmans were already
up 10-0 thanks to a triple by Kelley
Smiley, a double by Kelci Breaux,
a double by Alisha Claxton, a dou-
ble by Rachel Lowe, yet another
double by Lauren Throop, a sin-
gle by Megan Clements and Mary
Huff making second on a Titan
error.
The Lady Brahmans racked up
eight more runs in the bottom of
the second inning courtesy of two
RBI by Mary Huff, an RBI by Jor-
dan Nealis, an in-the-park home


run by Smiley that also earned her
an RBI, an RBI and a run by Clax-
ton and an RBI by Megan
Clements.
In the third inning, the Lady
Brahmans continued to hammer
the ball into all corners of the
field. Randi Barnes earned an RBI
with a hit to left field to make the
score 19-0; followed by a base hit
by Kristin McCullough that earned
her an RBI. Jordan put the icing
on the cake with a hit that earned
her an RBI and drove the score to
21-0.
One of the highlights of the
game for Lady Brahman Alisha
Claxton was a hard-hit fly that
went foul and smashed through
one of the field lights above the
concessions stand area, shower-
ing shards of glass to the ground
below to the delight of fans
around the field.

Southern gospel tenor group in concert


Brian Free is undeniably the
most recognizable southern
gospel tenor of our generation.
Since 1982, he has been at the
forefront of southern gospel
music since first joining Gold City
Quartet, then moving on to form
his own group, Assurance.
Brian has enjoyed tremendous
success in his musical career, but
his first priority has and always
will be his family. They say that
behind every good man is a great
woman, and Pam Free certainly
confirms that saying. Pam is
responsible for much of the busi-
ness behind the ministry and
keeps things running smoothly.
Pam and Brian are blessed with
two sons, Ricky and Bryce. Ricky
is a talented drummer and tours
with Assurance while Bryce is still
in school. This family unit is the
foundation for Brian and offers a
welcome calm in the middle of a
busy career.
Southern Gospel music has
always been Brian's first love,
and fans have responded to his
music by honoring him as
Favorite Mal Singer in 1987 and
voting him Favorite Tenor a
record eight times throughout the
years. He was also named
Favorite Young Artist in 1989 and
1991. Brian Free & Assurance

CIKANDSAVECUPONS OLIE


Reflections from the Pulpit


By Reverend Frank Adams
Pastor, Abundant Blessings
Assembly of God church
Jesus Christ the real thing.
Accept no substitutions
One doesn't have to be in
Christ long until the subject of
anti-Christ begins to be part of
the discussion. This anti-Christ is
an individual who, empowered
by Satan and the false prophets,
make up an un-holy trinity that
opposes and exalts itself above
all that is God. This lone individ-
ual known as anti-Christ is to be
manifested in the future as part
of prophetic scripture.
However, the Apostle John
provides us with this ad~moni-
tion: "Beloved, do not believe
every spirit, but test the spirit,
whether they are of God:
because many false prophets
have gone out into the world. By
this you know the Spirit of God:
every spirit that confesses that
Jesus Christ has come in the
flesh is of God and every spirit
that does not confess that Jesus
Christ has come in the flesh is
not of God and this is the spirit of
anti-Christ, which you have
heard was coming and is now
already in the world."


Anti-Christ means instead of
Christ, the opposite of Christ, a
substitute for Christ, hostile to
Christ. Satan has been offering
the world substitutes for Christ
since the beginning of time. This
spirit of anti-Christ is prevalent in
our world today and must be
overcome.
The Apostle John gives
insight on how to avoid being
influenced by the spirit of anti-
Christ that is in the world.
First, the spirit of anti-Christ
denies the deity of Jesus Christ.
"Every spirit that does not con-
fess that Jesus Christ has come
in the flesh is not of God and this
is the spirit of anti-Christ." (I
John 4:3) Do not be misled
when you hear of Jesus being
lauded as a great teacher, mira-
cle worker or even a great
prophet. This could be no more
than flattery to hide one's faulty
belief in the deity of Jesus Christ.
Christ is a great teacher, miracle
worker, and prophet but He is so
much more than that. He is God
manifest in the flesh. If Christ is
not God manifest in the flesh
then He is no savior, Christ as
God manifest in the flesh is the
cornerstone of Christian doc-
trine. Except no substitute or be

deceived by the flattery of
Christ's opponents. Any spirit
that denies Christ has come in
the flesh is anti-Christ.
A second characteristic of the
anti-Christ spirit is found in verse
five, chapter four of John's first
epistle. "They are of the world,
therefore they speak as of the
world and the world hears
them." Those who are of the
world, embrace the false substi-
tute Christ rather than the real
Christ.
The third way to recognize
anti-Christ spirit is found in the
fourth chapter, the sixth verse of
John's first epistle: "We are of
God, he who knows God hears
us. He who is not of God does
not hear us. By this we know the
spirit of truth and the spirit of
error." Those who embrace the
substitute Christ proclaimed by
anti-Christ refuse to hear the
truth as it is stated in God's
word.
John the Baptist, a prophet
sent by God to prepare the way
of Christ, is in direct contrast to
the false prophets of anti-Christ
who are sent out to prepare the
world to receive the substitute
Christ. This spirit of anti-Christ is
to be overcome by believers.


Several things in the context of
first John chapter four verse one
through eight equips the believ-
er to overcome the seduction of
a substitute Christ: One, the
indwelling Christ '"you are of
God, little children, and have
overcome them, because He
who is in you is greater than he
who is in the world".
The next thing that equips
believers to overcome all substi-
tutes is the love of the truth. "We
are of God, He who knows God
hears us, he who is not of God
does not hear us." The anti-
Christ spirit will substitute
absolute truth for relative truth.
Truth that is "relative" (adjusting
to the present) is no truth. The
final equipping for believers to
overcome the anti-Christ spirit is
our confession, found in the sec-
ond verse, fourth chapter. of
John's first epistle, "By this you
know the spirit of God: every
spirit that confesses that Jesus
Christ has come in the flesh is of
God". By this confession we are
safe-guarded from embracing
any substitute for the real-thing.
Jesus Christ We accept NO.
