It’s Time to Stop Pretending Abortion Is Anything Other Than the Ruthless Killing of an Innocent Human Being

Women's medical societyI have some similar feelings about the following news story as I did about the abortionist in Washington who received mild discipline (“ethics” training) from the state Health Department.

This article about a Pennsylvania abortion clinic is shocking to the general public, and shocking to most Christians.

Living Life or Documenting Insignificance?

ComicI saw this comic and it reminded me of the pride and presumption of imagining that swallowing toothpaste while brushing your teeth or being stuck in traffic is of compelling enough importance to others to interrupt their lives by telling them RIGHT NOW!

Rap with a Message

Don’t know if you like rap, but I like it when it’s well done and has a good message. Here’s one I think qualifies.

“Openness” and “In Prayer” from Valley of Vision

ValleyNanci and I often read The Valley of Vision, or listen to it (Max Maclean does an excellent audio version).  These are brief and profound Puritan prayers. We find them powerful and penetrating, prompting us to pray in ways that this culture, and even most of our church cultures, don’t prompt us toward. Here are two out of the many I’ve appreciated.

The Evidence Doesn’t Lie: The Unborn are Children (this post includes a special note to pastors and church leaders)

handprintLast year I did a phone interview for a film called The Life Project, produced by Verite Studios. Our office recently got an email from Timothy Eaton, the director, in which he wrote:

A Prayer from the First Continental Congress

PrayerIn light of the 112th Congress opening today, here is the prayer that opened the First Continental Congress on September 7, 1774.  May we be encouraged to pray that our leaders will have the same dependence upon God as these men did during very difficult times.

Sustained through Gratitude

Corrie Ten BoomGratitude never comes from avoiding difficulty, but from finding yourself sustained through it. The degree of joy rises to the degree of gratitude, and the level of gratitude corresponds to the level of God’s grace experienced in our suffering. God’s sustaining providence brings relief, even when life becomes unspeakably difficult.

The Word of God Entering a Tribe’s Language in 2010

ScriptureMy friend Tim Challies recently placed a ten minute video on his blog, documenting what happened earlier in 2010: the receiving of the completed translated New Testament by the Kimyal Tribe in Papua, Indonesia.

It’s No Accident You Live in This Time and Place

WalletWhen the following was posted last month on the Desiring God blog, written by Michael Oh, I was very touched by it. Read it, ponder it, pray over it. In case God speaks to your heart about giving, I’ve included a few ministries you may wish to invest in, an investment which will pay off for eternity.
