We ask, ‘Why is this happening?’ But the real question to ask is, ‘Why is this happening TODAY?’Today is Sunday. I know that our Pastor will take a public stand against the evil of abortion. He does this EVERY SUNDAY. How many Christians will hear that from their ‘pastors’ today? On an average day in America, in the time Christians listened to their ‘pastors’, 233 babies are murdered. Their ‘pastors’ say nothing and take no action. Meanwhile folks who call themselves Christians sit silent, and I’m sorry… complicit.Don’t say that we were not warned. John was very explicit about these hirelings. (John 10:11-13)". Edmund Burke said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”Christians, vote with your feet and abandon these hirelings. Homechurch if necessary, but stop supporting them.Montana Guy
My wife and I have abandoned many churches that did not teach true Bible doctrine. A man I greatly respected, who had once been a Jew and a Rabbi and then had accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior, once said that liberal-progressives had been infiltrating our Christian churches and colleges for decades. He said those schools were no longer teaching our young, future pastors anything meaningful about the Word of God. He found that at one well-known Christian college over the course of 4 years, a student could take only ONE Biblical course and still graduate with a bachelor's degree! He said that was appalling. I agree! --Fred in AZ
Great stuff. Can't add a thing.Huggs..
Thanks for sharing this very tender, personal piece Patrice. I'm old enough to remember life before 'the pill' and heard many debates (as a child) about how 'the pill' would effect society. By the time I was a teen the pill meant all the sex you want and "no unplanned or unwanted babies" Things clearly just got worse from there. There was a short period of time in my life journey, that had I become pregnant, I would probably have gotten an abortion. I shudder and thank God often that it never happened, but there are those that did, and I pray for them. I pray they seek and find God's forgiveness, and of course, if the do, they will.

My sweet baby boy, who is 21 years old, will take a lifetime of care. My life is so much richer because of the love he gives so freely every day. I thank God for him and my 'typical' children every day.
Once upon a time, I was also a believer in "choice." Then I learned that there is a world of people out there who do not want to have to "make the choice" to help a struggling young family learn to survive. A world of people who put material wealth ahead of far greater things. A world of people who think life should have an "EASY button," and the difficult and inconvenient things can and should be flushed away without a second thought. Then I learned that they don't really want you to have a choice-- there is a decision that will be respected, and a decision that will not. The decision that will be respected?? To reach for the "EASY button." The decision that will not?? To do the difficult things. Then I learned that those same people want to use the fact that I have a choice to tell me what choice I should make. Too many kids?? Oh, just abort this one that came unbidden. Struggling to figure out how to manage four?? Number for the abortion clinic!! Disabled (however insignificantly)?? Why, honey, you practically have a responsibility to abort. No more. I feel very sorry for the years I spent supporting the convenience-worshipping eugenicists on the grounds of "respecting others' right to choose."
