Simple and important reminder by Mike that we shouldn’t just pray for people, we should pray with them.

After talking with Shirley for about 5 minutes or so, and as I saw the tears in her eyes, I asked Shirley if I could pray with her. Not simply FOR her, but WITH her. She nodded her head and held her hands to her face, shielding me from her now-falling tears. I prayed a short prayer right there in the restaurant with her, and when I finished she wrapped her arms around me, put her head on my shoulders, and cried. And cried, and cried, and cried. I didn’t know what to say, so I said nothing. I just comforted Shirley for those few raw moments. Neither of us seemed to care much about whatever else was going on around us.

Read it all.

It occurred to me that Obama is “That 70’s President,” deftly combining the bad ideas and ineffectiveness of Carter with the ethics and paranoia of Nixon.  Just sayin’.

William Lane Craig debates radical skeptics on the resurrection of Jesus — great apologetics post, as usual, by the Wintery Knight.

Australia considers bill to criminalize free speech by Christians — as I often say, coming soon to a country near you.

Check out some of the sample articles of Salvo, a phenomenal magazine.  Great content and presentation on key issues of day.  I think it targets college aged / 20’s types but could be of interest to anyone.

The abortionist and his #1 foe — Late-term abortionist Larry Carhhart and pro-lifer Troy Newman are analyzed. CNN owes me a new irony meter, because these quotes broke it:

He glances at the poster of [murdered late-term abortionist George] Tiller. “I don’t want his death to be in vain.”

“I have abortion on the front of this building, because I think abortion isn’t a four-letter word. It’s a part of life.”

Tomorrow, just before and after performing abortions, Carhart will pray at the bedside of his patients.

And did I miss it, or did CNN fail to mention the pesky fact about the pro-lifer who was recently murdered?

This quote makes more sense:

What part of wanting to save a baby’s life is so bad that it makes people hate me?
–Troy Newman

The answer is that abortion makes a lot of money for some people and gives a false illusion of sexual freedom and equality for others.

Are abortion proponents smarter than a 2nd-grader? (um, no)

The Christian Post reports that a panel of Episcopal theologians are working on preparing “a paper on same-sex relationships in the life of the church.” This group of “theologians” “very intentionally represents a robust range of views on the subject and includes gays and lesbian persons.”

Wow – I am so happy to hear that a panel studying “same-sex relationships in the life of the church” includes same-sex advocates. This should be a really unbiased examination of what God’s Word has to say, dontcha think? 

It is a joke that they are even asking the question.  As someone who has actually read the Bible, I’ll be glad to save them some time:

  • 100% of the verses addressing homosexual behavior denounce it as sin in the clearest and strongest possible terms.
  • 100% of the verses referencing God’s ideal for marriage involve one man and one woman.
  • 100% of the verses referencing parenting involve moms and dads with unique roles (or at least a set of male and female parents guiding the children).
  • 0% of 31,173 Bible verses refer to homosexual behavior in a positive or even benign way or even hint at the acceptability of homosexual unions or oxymoronic “same sex marriage.”

We are all sinners in need of a savior, even if you excluded our sexual sins.  But Christians should never encourage sin or say that sin isn’t sin.  That is profoundly un-loving and the opposite of what Jesus did.

This is really not that complicated.  For a more thorough discussion on what the Bible really says, see Problems with pro-gay theology and Responding to Pro-Gay Theology.

Despite the lies of the Left, this is what is coming soon to a country near you: UK Police tell Christian Preacher: it’s a crime to say ‘homosexuality is a sin’. But always remember that there is definitely no homosexual agenda.

President Obama has appointed Kevin Jennings, co-founder and executive director of the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN), to be Deputy Assistant Secretary of Education for the Department of Safe and Drug-Free Schools.  Read this link and see how the public face is all about alleged anti-bullying efforts but their real motives are still in the closet:

After the “town hall meeting” concluded and the media had left the building, the 210 attendees broke into private workshop groups, where GLSEN presenters expounded a markedly different vision for the future. Denouncing the quest for “tolerance” as a “condescending campaign for the second-class citizenry” —— as one speaker put it —— the presenters spoke frankly about their goal to have homosexuality open “affirmed” and celebrated” in American’s schools.

“We might start with people who…say, ‘Well, I can go as far as tolerance,’ and then we build from there,” Kalteissen said. “And our job, I believe, is to move them down the scale…Tolerance is not enough, let’s keep going.”

Hmmmm . . . is it possible that people who are aggressively trying to teach kindergartners how normal this behavior is could lie about their motives?

But always remember that there is definitely no homosexual agenda.

A new religion masquerading as Christianity — a former theological liberal explains how things changed once she quit putting her personal preferences over the commands of the Bible. 

Before I came to know Christ in a saving way I was a liberal “Christian.” (That was before the liberals coined the term “progressive Christian.”) As all liberals do, I molded Christianity into my worldview. Problem was I kept running into a road block — the Bible.

I hope that the theological liberals who visit this site will make the same course correction that she did — while there is still time!

Just when you thought they couldn’t go any lower: Free abortions to honor George Tiller! (OK, we knew they could go lower.)

How Unconstitutional is Barack Obama? Let me count the ways — Why aren’t Liberals and ACLU types going insane over this?!

Three fallacies of evolution — Isn’t it a fact just like gravity?  Uh, not quite.

Why Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (and not Michael Jordan) is the greatest player in NBA history — OK, I’m a little biased since Kareem was my favorite since I was 10 years old (when he was with Milwaukee), but I thought the writer made an excellent case.  Man, I loved to watch him play. 

I still root for the Lakers but it isn’t the same as in the 80’s. 

Ann Coulter had a great column on George Tiller.  She exposes the media hypocrisy of falling over themselves saying how Muslims aren’t violent yet projecting Tiller’s murder on the whole pro-life community. 

Why aren’t liberals rushing to assure us this time that “most pro-lifers are peaceful”?

She details the blood money with which Tiller bought off politicans.

And also this:

I wouldn’t kill an abortionist myself, but I wouldn’t want to impose my moral values on others. No one is for shooting abortionists. But how will criminalizing men making difficult, often tragic, decisions be an effective means of achieving the goal of reducing the shootings of abortionists?

Following the moral precepts of liberals, I believe the correct position is: If you don’t believe in shooting abortionists, then don’t shoot one.

I heart satire.
