A terrific brochure: The Truth About Planned Parenthood.  Please read and share!

Great perspective on the most offensive verse in the Bible.  Use it when people try to play the “gotcha” game on politically correct issues.  You’ll not only be standing up for the truth (yes, homosexual behavior is a sin), but you’ll be using it to segue to the broader Gospel message.

“The most offensive thing I believe is Genesis 1:1, and everything it implies.

“That is, I believe in a sovereign Creator who is Lord and Definer of all. Everything in the universe — the planet, the laws of physics, the laws of morality, you, me — everything was created by Another, was designed by Another, was given value and definition by Another. God is Creator and Lord, and so He is ultimate. That means we are created and subjects, and therefore derivative and dependent.
“Therefore, we are not free to create meaning or value. We have only two options. We can discover the true value assigned by the Creator and revealed in His Word, the Bible; or we can rebel against that meaning.
“Any time you bring up questions about any of these issues, you do so from one of two stances. You either do it as someone advocating and enabling rebellion against the Creator’s design, or as someone seeking submissive understanding of that design. You do it as servant or rebel. There is no third option.

University shocked when Muslim espouses Islam’s view of homosexuals – they assumed that their enemy’s (Christianity) enemy (Islam) would be their friend.  Not so.  I think they are just afraid of criticizing Islam, so they go for the safe target, Christianity – even though we’ve done more to elevate women than any other worldview.

I guess the pass given to Islam shouldn’t surprise me.  The political left is just as willfully blind to the way Islam and Muslims treat women.  Women who are suspected of shaming their family’s name are beaten, maimed, or killed with the approval of their societies and even their own family.  But trying to prevent mothers from killing their pre-born children is somehow a war on women.

Pat Robertson Claims Second-Hand Goodwill Sweaters Might Carry Demons — Thanks, false teacher Pat Robertson, for continuing to make Christianity look bad.

Tony Jones goes full-blown false teacher by denying the need for the cross (among other things).  The good news is that Jones got too warm and took off the sheep’s clothing. Now he is an unapologetic, open wolf and is unveiled for all to see.

Also note that false teacher Jay Bakker (son of Jim and Tammy Faye) said “Would you agree that the Bible is a flawed collection of writings?”  I love when false teachers out themselves like that.

1 Thessalonians 2:13 And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe.

First Baptist of Dallas Pastor Robert Jeffress’ Powerful Response to Tebow Controversy – this has turned out well for them and the proclamation of the Gospel.  I think Tebow is still a good guy but he wimped out here.  Hopefully he’ll do better next time. 

Folks, our response to Tim Tebow caving in to the “Gay Thought Police” is coming soon. Here is First Baptist Church of Dallas Pastor Robert Jeffress’ wonderful response to the controversy Sunday, Feb. 24, 2013 at the church. It has been very encouraging to watch Jeffress (with God’s help) so effortlessly turn “lemons into lemonade” on this story. When even “TMZ Live” sides with Pastor Jeffress over Tebow on the story (a TMZ host said Tebow “wussed out on this one”), you know something interesting is afoot in the culture. My sense is that even as “gay power” grows in America — with all its accompanying intolerance and anti-Christian bigotry — there is also rising a societal disgust with speech-stifling political correctness. Maybe truly hate-filled homosexual militants like Wayne Besen (who smears Jeffress as a “hate pastor” HERE) are actually helping the pro-family movement. Let’s hope so.

Kind, loving, tolerant “reverend” says Al Mohler is just like a Muslim terrorist because he holds the same view about marriage that Obama did until just a few months ago.  Fortunately HuffPo allowed comments that eviscerated the wolf’s attack.

10 Reasons to Quit Soft Drinks – or at least only drink them sparingly.

This speaks volumes.  When business people have to cut expenses, they cut non-essentials first and minimize the impact to customers.  The government should minimize the impact to taxpayers, but instead Obama & Co. are deliberately and unnecessarily making our lives more miserable and dangerous simply to convince the masses that we still aren’t spending enough.

Southern Poverty Law Center Silent as Floyd Corkins’ Plea Agreement Confirms: SPLC ‘Hate’ List Guided Him to Family Research Council
 

Potential mass-murderer and deranged LGBT activist Floyd Corkins used the Southern Poverty Law Center’s spurious “hate” list to target FRC.

“Floyd Corkins II, 28, acknowledged in a plea agreement that he intended to kill as many people as possible during the August shooting at the Family Research Council. He also planned to target other organizations that oppose gay marriage if he wasn’t stopped.

Corkins intended to smear the sandwiches in the faces of his victims to make a statement about gay rights opponents, he acknowledged during a hearing Wednesday.” — AP report on Corkins’ plea deal

  1. Great Roundup! I printed out the pamphlet about PP, and now have to get a chance to read it.
    There are two books by George Grant which I think should be required reading for everyone, although I doubt if they are still in print (but ARE on my shelf):
    Grand Illusions: the Legacy of Planned Parenthood. Originally copyright 1988, revised in 1992 and I got my copy in 1995.
    Immaculate Deception: The Shifting Agenda of Planned Parenthood. Copyright 1996, and I got my copy the next year.
    I’m sure they can be found at Amazon, etc. The point is, there is some excellent history lessons in these books

  2. I think it was Thomas Sowell who said that if a government agency had just 2 responsibilities: making statues of Benedict Arnold and giving life-saving medications to children, if the budget was cut they would cut the funds for children’s medications. The obvious reason for that is that as soon as they cut something so necessary, people complain and they are likely to get their funding back. If they cut back on statutes of Benedict Arnold, not only will no one restore their lost spending, but they might ask why they were making such useless statues in the first place. That is precisely the problem we have right now. The democrats are being forced to cut spending and, since they care more about being reelected and funding their pet projects more than the good of the country, they cut the most important items first to make people complain and get their funding back. They don’t have any intention of actually reducing government waste.

  3. I wouldn’t be too hard on Tim Tebow. He is going to make mistakes. We can’t expect some 25-year-old Christian not to make a few. Let’s just hope he keeps coming back to the word and the Spirit works in him to truly mature him.

  4. I was looking at the 10 reasons to not drink sodas. While I agree that it is a good idea to stop drinking them can we stop with the whole, “it may cause cancer” thing? Everything has been linked to cancer at some point. Typing on this computer [i]may[/i] cause cancer so I better stop right? Talking on your cell phone [i]may[/i] cause cancer so we better stop that too.

    Why only apply the cancer cause to one thing and not others? At least be consistent.

So, what do you think?
