All eyes are on the Supreme Court. For the first time in many years, Brent Kavanaugh’s appointment could cement a Conservative pro-life majority within the highest court of our nation. This also means that for the first time in a long time, something can actually be done about Roe v. Wade. Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling which legitimized child sacrifice as a constitutional right under the guise of “reproductive freedom”, is thrust back into the spotlight and many Liberals feel
It was 45 years ago that the United States Supreme Court ruled that the choice to murder was a constitutional right and should be protected and enforced. Roe v Wade was an unprecedented decision and it stands out as a dark stain on America’s once noble past. Over 60 million children have been surgically aborted since 1973 and that is not counting the untold millions that have perished due to abortifacient drugs that are found in many birth control methods. Regardless if you f
Rummaging through my stack of papers and books that cover my desk, I found a small folded piece of paper with a large red question mark with the title “The Big Question”. What is the big question you ask? It is this: If you were to die today, where would you go? Is there life after death? People have been speculating this for eons. Every civilization has come up with their own answers to the mystery of what happens after someone dies. Do people go to Valhalla, Nirvana, Heave
In the Scriptures there is one poignant question that has been jumping out at me lately and it is found in James 4:14 where it says “What is your life?” It seems rather a difficult question to answer due to its scope. Added to the complexity, is this question is deeply personal and the answer would vary from person to person depending on their background, present situation and circumstance. But really, have you considered lately what is your life? I suppose the reason why t
A young Jonathan Edwards penned 70 life resolutions, the first being "I will live for God's glory."
As we have seen the close of 2016 and the start of 2017 is right on the horizon, for many of us we have sat ourselves down and have assessed the past year.
I know for me personally, this year has been one of incredible transition, difficulty yet it was very transformative. While 2016 was all intense and purposes a good year for our family, I for one, am looking forward to
Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me!"
How many of us remember saying those words when our school mates would poke fun of us on the playground? I do.
In my experience those words would be then followed by me making a rude face before walking away to go play somewhere else. However, that schoolyard saying is a lie. In fact if you remember the experience of uttering that tired cliché you realized it was a lie then as you do now. The sting of a
Religious freedom is a hot button issue in this election and it circles around when and where should faith be exercised. Should Christianity even be in the public sphere or should it only remain within the four walls of a local church building, or practiced in the privacy of your own home? Our constitution says we have the freedom of religion and even though, the majority of Americans would agree to that, the consensuses however says “but please practice it in private, and do
As of writing this, the last presidential debate was held a few days ago and one of the opening questions was about the life issue, more specifically about Roe v. Wade.
To many people's surprise, one political candidate vehemently supported the right to perform partial-birth abortions and even went so far as to not deny the claim that partial-birth abortions could be done well within the third trimester of pregnancy. However, her admission of supporting the performing of p
Everyone has had some experience with death, whether it is the loss of a spouse, family member, or friend, death impacts people profoundly. There are not many certainties in this life, but one thing is for sure, that every single individual is going to face death. Death has a 1:1 ratio, meaning that death is inescapable. Because death is so certain, the question is not how do we prevent death ultimately, but how do we deal with death, when it comes knocking on our door? In my
Out of all the most difficult things to do in life, offering forgiveness has to be one that is high on the list. Forgiveness is difficult to give, because in some respect it appears to go against our own sense of personal justice, our rights and our perceived ideas concerning fairness. To make matters more complicated, offering forgiveness seems to give the one who committed the offense, a pass as if to dismiss the hurt they caused and gives them license to do it again. We ha
In recent events, much controversy has swirled regarding bathrooms, boycotts, and blurred lines concerning the issue of gender identity. At any given rate, an individual can move between genders or even associate with multiple genders at one time which doesn’t simplify the matters, but only convolutes the discussion. In fact, Facebook lists over 50 different “options” that an individual can assign themselves to be, and they can change when the mood strikes them. This non-bina
Your life is not a series of random events or sequences of unrelated decisions. You have a story. You have a purpose. For many of us, this can be hard to swallow. Our lives can seem so mundane. We wake up, eat breakfast, take the kids to school, go to work, come home, eat dinner then go to bed, all to repeat the following day and the years afterward. But ask yourself, is that all there is to life? Oh to be sure, we need to eat, kids need education and we must be productive me
