March 20, 2018: Please remember to NOT vote for Bruce Rauner



Dear Friends,

The 2018 Illinois gubernatorial primary election is fast approaching and will take place on March 20th.  Please remember to NOT vote for pro-abort Governor Bruce Rauner. I don't care how much the Republican establishment in Illinois throws at you in order to secure this wicked man's re-election, please stand firm in your resolve to not allow a prenatal baby killer (or one who supports it) to serve as governor of our state. Just say "no" to fear and "yes" to faith in Christ by voting for a godly candidate.

Here are just a few articles documenting Bruce Rauner's betrayal of the pre-born and the conservative Christians who helped elect him in 2014:

IL GOP Gov. Bruce Rauner to sign HB 40, become first governor in U.S. to require taxpayers to fund abortion


Posted at Prairie State Wire:

Governor Bruce Rauner will sign House Bill 40, mandating state taxpayer funding of abortion, sources tell Prairie State Wire.

Rauner revealed his decision during a staff conference call this morning.

In signing the bill, Rauner will become America’s first governor to initiate taxpayer funding of abortions.

Today, Medicaid recipients can receive abortions in cases of rape, incest, health and life of the mother.

The measure expands that. It means Illinoisans on Medicaid as well as state employees will receive free abortions for any reason, up until the last day of their pregnancy.

'Once again Governor Rauner disappoints! '


Dear Friends,

Once again Governor Rauner disappoints! On Good Friday his office announced that he would veto HB 40, which publicly funds abortions, adds abortion to the Illinois insurance plan for employees, and keeps abortion until live birth the law of the land in Illinois even if Roe v. Wade is overturned!

This is a drastic change to longstanding Illinois policy! For years Illinois has not paid for abortions through tax-payer funding except for the life of the mother. Illinois citizens have never had to pay for abortions through the state employee health care plans. Surveys clearly show that 70-80% of Illinois citizens do not belief taxpayers should fund abortions. This legislation will require Illinois taxpayers somewhere around $20 million to pay to end the lives of thousands of innocent unborn children.

By signing HB 40, Governor Rauner has gone completely against the Illinois Republican Party platform. Please continue to pray for Illinois, our governor, our legislators. Our solid pro-life and pro-family legislators are under great pressure.

Thank you for your continued prayers during discouraging times like this. The work must continue. Thank you for your support! We remain in His Service!

Baptists lament Ill. governor's reversal on abortion

By Tom Strode - Posted at Baptist Press:

WASHINGTON (BP) -- Southern Baptist leaders reacted with deep disappointment to Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner's change of mind in support of groundbreaking abortion-funding legislation.

Rauner, a Republican, signed into law Sept. 28 a bill that requires taxpayers to fund abortions for low-income women through the state's Medicaid program, even though he had said in April he opposed it. The new law also provides abortion funding for women covered by state employee insurance.

In signing the legislation, Rauner also apparently established a precedent in state funding of abortion. Illinois becomes the first state in which the legislature and governor have acted to approve Medicaid funds for abortion, according to pro-life researcher Michael J. New. Previously, New reported, Medicaid funds for abortion were legal in 15 states -- 11 by judicial decision and four by health department action.

Dear Father in Heaven,

I pray you will forgive the citizens of Illinois for electing a pro-abort governor. Please forgive us for voting pragmatism instead of our pro-life conviction.  Help us to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves while standing for righteousness.  I also pray You will forgive our governor, lead him to repentance and give him a new heart.

Thank you.

In Lord Jesus Name I pray, 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.
