Abortion: Can We Wash Our Hands from Our Responsibility?


The Penn State disaster with Joe Paterno reminds us all that the knowledge of a crime burdens us with a moral obligation to report the crime. There is a moral mandate to act or we take some of the guilt to ourselves by our inaction.

Like the blood of Abel that cries from the soil, the blood of our children cries out to heaven for justice. And our hands are dirty, even if we didn’t do the deed.

This is the biggest issue of our time. The big elephant in the room. 50 million babies killed every year world wide. Over 1.3 million babies are killed every year in America.

We call Herod a monster for killing thousands of babies while trying to kill baby Jesus. Yet, we vote into office political leaders who support and sustain a monstrous evil. Over a billion babies killed since the Roe Wade decision. Can we really expect God not to judge us as a culture? Can we escape God’s wrath? Probably not.

To Live, Move and Have Being


If women have a right to predetermine the value of the life inside them, then what was wrong with slave owners removing liberty and freedom from a slave baby before it was born?

No one has the right to diminish the value of a life.

God is the source of life. We have person-hood by the power of God. To kill a baby is to kill a child of God.

We are not talking about a political issue or a single item in a list of topics discussed by the moral majority. We are talking about genocide. Abortion is genocide. The genocide isn’t focused on a race or religion. It’s an age based discrimination of the helpless, those without a voice and those without a defender. God is their defender. We need to join with God in the defense of His children.

God CAN'T Leave Your Salvation to Chance


God can’t keep Himself from knowing the future and determining it’s outcome. It’s an unstoppable consequence of His sovereign power and omniscience.

And don’t begrudge God’s electing love. Don’t criticize God’s sovereign mercy which saves.

Without God we won’t come to faith. God makes the difference. We should thank Him, not criticize His choices.

Christians need to stop grumbling about election.

Is Inerrancy A Bible Doctrine?


Inerrancy is not an intellectual construct that we build in our mind after we make a careful analysis of the data. Jesus considered the Bible to be without error. Inerrancy is a Bible doctrine.

To not embrace the doctrine of inerrancy is to pervert the Gospel and put your soul in danger.

We do not prove the Bible to be God’s word by labeling it inerrant as a matter of reason or logic. The Bible claims this for itself.

We should close the debates and refocus our collective energies.
