'Ponder the path of your feet...let all your ways be established'

By Angela Wittman

"In the November 2004 elections, my plea with Christians is to vote for righteousness, ... The Bible says that righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people [Proverbs 14:34]. If Christians vote for Republicans or Democrats, they are wasting their votes."

-- (Steve Lefemine, Director of Columbia Christians for Life)

Dear Friends,

I am convinced that to achieve victory in the war against murder of children by abortion, we need to stop being afraid to offend and begin speaking the truth in love. This is how we will transform our culture to once more being predominately Christian instead of the multi-cultural, pluralistic and intolerant society the God-haters are constructing. Some will tell you that we must end the murder of the unborn babies incrementally...I disagree. I think we need to draw a line in the sand and say we will not support or vote for those candidates who have compromised on the issue of life for babies -- regardless of how they are conceived. We will get pro-life candidates and leaders who will hold to no exception to commit infanticide (murder by abortion) when we demand they stop compromising on this most basic and fundamental issue.

Many of you have been told we have a pro-life president in the Whitehouse now and we must rally around him while securing his re-election. Please do not be deceived by mere words and promises, but examine the facts. What exactly has President Bush and his administration accomplished in which babies lives are saved? I am not talking about good intentions or frustrated efforts to do what is right, but what exactly has been accomplished since the man has been in office? How many actual lives of unborn children have been spared? I submit to you that more babies lives are saved by those standing in front of the abortion clinics pleading with the mom's and dad's entering to reconsider and spare their unborn child from death than President Bush has saved during his presidency. Instead of voting for who you agree with on the majority of issues, why not vote for the candidate you agree with on all the issues -- primarily the LIFE issue? A pro-life friend recently sent me these questions for Christian voters to ask themselves (and others) before casting their vote for a candidate:

Can I expect God's blessing upon me if I support any evil?Do I really want to stop supporting abortion and sodomy with my votes?Has this candidate supported such things in the past? Do they support them now by who they publicly support and vote for?Am I voting out of faith and obedience or fear and disobedience?Am I communicating to anyone that I'll vote for them even if they aren't 100% pro-life?

A good resource in which to examine the president's actions while in office is the web site .

Dear friends, I cannot justify compromising the life of even one unborn child by voting for a lesser of evil. Isn't it time we stopped allowing the murder of the pre-born babies?

As we head toward the fall elections, let us be mindful of these words of our LORD:

Ponder the path of your feet,
And let all your ways be established.
Do not turn to the right or the left;
Remove your foot from evil.
(Proverbs 4: 26, 27)

May we ponder our paths and remove our feet from evil as we know the LORD hates those who shed innocent blood. Amen.

A discerning look at 'Biblical Patriarchy' and those who abuse it

By Angela Wittman While much of what Doug Phillips teaches regarding Patriarchy sounds biblical, because of the lack of practical application, his teachings are often taken to extremes. Sometimes, men just hear his vision of men always “leading,” and they become domineering and demanding, causing undue stress on the wife. I know of one family that divorced precisely because of hearing this teaching and not understanding what it really should be. Sometimes, men will try to emulate what they see in Doug Phillips, and start requiring their families to have all the same rules as the Phillips. Unfortunately, if there are no personal convictions behind the rules, they soon become extremely oppressive and smother the family. Some men just have no clue about how to “lead” their families; they just know that it’s being constantly preached at them from the pulpit. Having come from a home without a godly leader, these men need lots of practical examples. (Taken from: Doug Phillips’ Kangaroo Court

A discerning look at Ted Weiland's "Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective"

By Angela Wittman I believe I have found within the Scriptures the key to what made America great, and this key can restore her to her former greatness. - Ted Weiland, ( Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution; The Christian Perspective , A couple of years ago Ted Weiland contacted me and asked if he might send me his primer on  Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective . After receiving and reviewing the primer, I decided to toss it in the trash due to the concern that Mr. Weiland was missing a foundational point - Biblical covenanting.  And after recently reviewing his work in greater detail, I believe the reformed and theonomic community should be cautious about Mr. Weiland's book and his beliefs. Due to some glaring "red flags" I encountered while researching Mr. Weiland, I've decided to write this warning and state my concerns. First of a

'Of Saving Faith'

The Westminster Confession of Faith Chapter XIV Of Saving Faith I. The grace of faith, whereby the elect are enabled to believe to the saving of their souls, [1] is the work of the Spirit of Christ in their hearts, [2] and is ordinarily wrought by the ministry of the Word, [3] by which also, and by the administration of the sacraments, and prayer, it is increased and strengthened. [4] II. By this faith, a Christian believes to be true whatsoever is revealed in the Word, for the authority of God himself speaking therein; [5] and acts differently upon that which each particular passage thereof contains; yielding obedience to the commands, [6] trembling at the threatenings, [7] and embracing the promises of God for this life, and that which is to come. [8] But the principal acts of saving faith are accepting, receiving, and resting upon Christ alone for justification, sanctification, and eternal life, by virtue of the covenant of grace. [9] III. This faith is differ

Alzheimer's Disease, Adultery and God's Word

By Angela Wittman "When B. and I realized what we're dealing with and she understood what the situation is, she said to me… 'I know what I have. I know where it's gonna take me. Tell the story. Tell the truth,'" Gasby recounted.  In January, he spoke that truth — and let cameras into his home. It's a home he shares with his wife and his girlfriend, Alex Lerner, who also has a bedroom in the house and helps with B.'s care.  Yesterday morning I happened to catch the segment  Falling in love while caring for your spouse with Alzheimer's disease   that aired on CBS This Morning. . I watched in amazement as two men whose wives had Alzheimer's Disease (one wife is now deceased) openly discussed having adulterous relationships with other women. Is this now to become a new norm? These men and women feel they shouldn't be judged, and shockingly the news anchors interviewing them seemed to agree. My father has Alzheimer's Disease and w
