Loving the Least of Your Neighbors

By Angela Wittman

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. – Matthew 5: 44-48

Many folks are coming to the realization that the least protected people in America are the weakest and most defenseless – the preborn. As a result of this realization, we are seeing an increase in efforts to establish protection for preborn people in legislative efforts such as the Personhood state constitutional amendment movement and support for various proposed “Right to Life” laws.

It is encouraging to watch God open eyes and hearts to the plight of the preborn who are at the mercy of their parents making a right “choice” to let them live. I have a great hope that the killing of these preborn babies will be outlawed in my lifetime. And while I applaud those leading the charge in the legislative halls of our state houses, let’s not forget those unsung heroes ministering on the streets of America.

Some folks call these street ministers “abortion protesters,” “anti-choicers” and other names that should not be mentioned due to their hatefulness and profanity. But I call them witnesses and ministers to the preborn, parents and the abortuary workers.

They are regularly at the abortuary to witness against the taking of a human life. Many hold signs of preborn children, while others hand out pamphlets to the customers going into the death clinic; their very presence is a statement that prenatal child-killing is wrong. They are in reality a witness to the crime of murder taking place inside the death camp walls.

They also minister at the abortion mill by offering help, hope and healing to those seeking the death camp services and those who work there. They not only offer information where the nearest Pregnancy Resource Center is, they are also there as ambassadors of the Lord Jesus Christ, who often call out to the lost with the love and hope of the Gospel, and include Gospel tracts in the brochures they hand out.

But perhaps the greatest witness and ministry shown to others are by our actions. So please continue witnessing and ministering to the least of our neighbors - the preborn - with the love and mercy our Lord Jesus Christ has poured into our hearts.

Let us not become weary in well doing as we know our Savior is strong and fights on our behalf. He has promised to never leave or forsake us and we can take comfort in this knowledge. Amen.

A Judge and the Ten Commandments

We now face a new moral crisis, a new crisis of conscience, for voters in the United States, specifically, this time voters in the state of Alabama. That's because on December 12 the voters of that state will elect a new United States Senator in a special election made necessary in order to fill the seat that had been vacated by the current Attorney General of the United States Jeff Sessions. - Dr. Albert Mohler - President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary ( Daily Briefing 11.13.17)

Dear Friends,
There has been much discussion on the Roy Moore US Senate race and recent allegations of sexual impropriety and child sexual abuse made by women who claim to have been teenagers when these events took place. Those of you who follow my blogs know that I once was a supporter of Judge Moore and theonomy in general. 
However, I had a change of heart regarding theonomy several years ago (2013), and now I am no longer a supporter of Judge Moore.  I believe there are credible reports th…

Aiming for Godly Growth in 2018

Dear Friends,

There is much busyness in the life of today's women, but if you are a Christian, you will have a desire to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord. Here are some recently written articles by other authors I think you'll find valuable. I pray you'll make time to read and reflect upon the godly advice and wisdom shared in each one.

The first article is On Being a Christian Woman in the Year of Our Lord, 2018written by Abigail Dodds and posted at her blog Hope and Stay.

Abigail writes about the hunger of Christian women for sound teaching in today's churches, which is right and good, but also warns of some pitfalls and how to avoid them.

Here are some valuable excerpts from her article:
Here’s my summary: Biblically-conservative Christian women are eager to have visible, biblically-conservative leadership by women in their churches and eager to learn from gifted, female Bible teachers whether locally or nationally. Secondly, women with the gift of teach…

What on earth was Roy Moore thinking?

Dear Friends,

Yesterday I saw this tweet repeating a comment reported by the LA Times that Roy Moore made at a campaign rally last September when one of his supporters asked him when he thought the last time America was "great:"
"I think it was great at the time when families were united—even though we had slavery—they cared for one another…Our families were strong, our country had a direction." (Taken from Roy Moore: Last Time America was 'Great" was During 'Slavery'; Newsweek, 12.7.2017) I realize this is being presented out of context and sensationalized, but really, folks, what on earth was Roy Moore thinking when he said it?  Regardless of how foolish making such a comment is during a public campaign event for a national office, it's just plain wrong.
