Please go read The Naked Gun on the theology of ministry at Patrick’s blog. If nothing else, you’ll laugh at a great clip from the movie.
Sanctity of Human Life Sunday will be January 18th this year (as well as January 25th in some places). Last year I was able to speak at a couple Sunday School classes at a large local church. I’m going to be the Board President for CareNet in 2009 so I’m hoping there will be more speaking opportunities to educate people on all the great things CareNet does for women and their families, as well as how to articulate the pro-life message.
Randy Alcorn is an amazing pro-life apologist (among other things) and is offering his book Why Pro-life? for only $1.60 each (in case quantities) to help churches equip people with the pro-life message. Let your pastor know that these are available! It would be a great way to educate people. Randy is a very winsome and persuasive author.
Here’s some good news: The Love Dare book from the Fireproof movie is #2 on the NYT Best Seller list.
People Said to Believe in Aliens and Ghosts More Than God – This is sad but also amusing, especially with people insisting that it is the advanced education of the West that keeps them from an “irrational” belief in God. They make nice bookends for the deliberately unclear “thinkers” on the other end of the spectrum who insist that there is no truth.
Going rate to kill a pastor: $250 – Hindu extremist groups are offering money, food and alcohol to anyone who murders Christians and destroys their homes.
Obama, Can You Spare Blacks A Proclamation? – this is quite a list!
Predictably, the Abortion President is putting together a seriously anti-life, anti-family Cabinet.

Going rate to kill a pastor: $250
Times have changed. They originally did it for free:
Act 7:57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,
Act 7:58 And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul.
Act 7:59 And they stoned Stephen…
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
Thank you for stopping by the blog!

re: The Love Dare Book – I pushed my sons/daughters and a few friends to go see this movie. Now I’m going to buy the men involved a copy of the book for Christmas and push them to work through it starting Jan 1. I’m going to suggest they “team up” with an accountability partner to work on it. I’m buying an extra copy for myself and hope to work with one of the friends I sent to the movie.
Randy, that is a great idea and a good way to start the year.
I have noticed the irony in our culture decrying the “irrationality” of Christianity but at the same time believing in just downright weird things. Oprah is America’s pastor, and that doesn’t bode too well for the intellect.

It is amazing what people will believe in the absence of decent evidence. Aliens visitation, ghosts, spirits, souls, deities, psychic readings.
All very strange really 🙂
They even believe that something can come from nothing, randomly create the unbelievable fine-tuning of the universe and form DNA, cells, life, etc. Go figure.
The concept of the first-cause theory is one of the most logical positions around.
Consider how the fine-tuning arguments are driving many to the intellectually bankrupt multiverse theory. Now that’s desperation!
