July 10 -17 Church anniversary f Life Changing Transformation Church Ministries, See Rel.Cal.oti B6 * Photo by Timothy Ramsey According to creators Jeff Prince and Chris Holt, the name Blood Purchase represents people being pur chased through the sacrifice of Jesus, who died on the cross for all people. Clothing line inspired by the sacrifice of Jesus BY TIMOTHY RAMSEY THE CHRONICLE When two like-minded individuals come together inspired by the Lord, good things tend to manifest. Building on this principle, Jeff Prince and Chris Holt have created the "Blood Purchase" clothing line. While Prince and Holt were working together as janitors at their church, they had aspirations of having a clothing line. After a few years, the inspiration was put into Princes' head to pursue his dream and the dream became a reality. The name Blood Purchase came about because Romans 1:16 is one of Jeffs favorite Bible verses. He stated that because the gospel is all about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, it seemed to fit per fectly. "I realized we were all purchased through the sac rifice of Jesus Christ and that's how I came up with the name," said Prince. "I was sitting there thinking of the roles of the Trinity and that's how I came up with the triangle in the design and the circle signi fies completion and the blood drips round every thing out. I didn't put any scripture on the shirts because I wanted people to ask what the symbol meant so it could spark a conver sation." Holt grew up in the Winston-Salem area in a Christian-based household and family is very impor tant to him. He is a gradu ate of West Forsyth High School and has always had a love for clothes and shoes. When speaking about the name Blood Purchase, Holt said, "Jesus died on the cross for all of us to be forgiven of our sins and to live for him. We want this line to be Christian based because anything we sell, we want to always glorify God." Prince is a native of Philadelphia, Pa., but his See Clothing on B6 Church prays for city to stop the violence BY TIMOTHY RAMSEY THE CHRONICLE * The number of homi cides in the city of Winston-Salem is double what it was at the same time last year. People are nervous and the police department is looking for answers why. Bishop Freddie B. Marshall of Christ Cathedral Church of Deliverance, 2318 Cragmore St., fought back using the church's mighti est weapon: prayer. On Monday, June 27, Christ Cathedral held "Not in Our City" prayer hour. The church says the hour of prayer was for the fami lies of recent shootings and killings. It was also for peace this summer and protection of lives in the city. The church stated it's not about where you live, where you work or where you worship. It's about prayer for our city. "The more we look at what's going on in our city and cities just like ours across the country, for Photo by Timothy Ramse> Many individuals who took part in the "Not in our City" prayer hour stayed for the entire event praying for the safety of their families and everyone in the citv. those of us who believe in prayer, this just seems like the next natural thing," said Marshall. "We can't See Prays on B6 Under Sin's Power Lesson Scripture: Romans 3:9-20 By the end of this les son, we will ?See that sin is uni versal in human beings ?Understand that we need salvation from sin ?Know that we expe rience restoration when we ask Christ to fotgive our sins and trust in Him Background: Paul, previously Saul of Tarsus is the author of the Roman epistle. Paul was chosen as an apostle by God and assigned to preach to the gentiles and kings as well as the Jews. His background of education and Roman citizenship made him singularly suited for* such an assignment. His ability to stand toe-to-toe with lead apostle Peter bode well for the Gentile converts in many instances. Paul underscored that "believers," Jews * k ll Elder I Richard Wayne Wood Sunday School Lesson I 'III and Gentiles, are equal in God's eyes, something that God had to drill into Peter's head. Lesson: "We're all in the same sinking boat," "All people are sinners," "Sin is universal": all of these statements are ways of saying as Paul does in Romans we are all the same, Gentile and Jew, for we all have sinned and are guilty. It's true that Jews are God's cho sen people and do indeed enjoy certain spiritual advantages over the Gentiles. But, in our standing before God, none have an advantage (vs. 9). None are naturally righteous, or understand God's word or seek after Him, because we are all bom into sin and shaped in iniquity; we all have an ungodly character.
