A Matter of Life and Death

By Angela Wittman

Dear Friends,

Have you been spending countless hours writing letters to your "pro-life" senators and congressmen asking them to vote pro-life? Have you spent countless minutes on the phone explaining to the staff of your legislator why he should vote pro-life? And does he vote for a piece of legislation that doesn't really end the murder of innocent babies in the womb, but just regulates the killers? Perhaps you have even spent thousands of dollars helping certain candidates win election in hope that Congress would have the needed votes to save innocent lives of preborn babies? Are you wondering why the killing of children via abortion is still "legal" and why even with a majority of the Republican Party in power, innocent blood still flows through the sewers of America? Wouldn't it be wonderful if our "pro-life" representatives brought an end to the barbarism of baby killing?

A friend, Cal Zastrow of Michigan Citizens for Life, recently pointed out to me how quickly Congress took action on Rep. Murtha's call for an immediate withdrawal from Iraq on Thursday, the 18th of November 2005. By late Friday, on November 19th of 2005, Congress had pushed through and rejected with a vote of 403-3, a nonbinding resolution calling for immediate troop withdrawal.

I wonder why Congress hasn't taken this kind of decisive action on behalf of preborn babies by quickly passing the Right to Life Act of 2005? You would think this would be a "no-brainer" and they would be racing to see who among them would be first to ensure the passage of such noble legislation. Instead, I have read that the bill is "languishing in the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution."

Cal Zastrow has this advice for the pro-life voters of America:

"Being as the Republicans voted on a bill the same day as it was introduced in the House of Representatives last month, don't believe them when they say:

1. "We tried to get to the Right to Life Act of 2005 but ran out of time."
2. "We're pro-life."
3. "Things in Washington take time."
4. "We're doing the best we can."
5. "We could get more done if the Democrats wouldn't obstruct."
6. "Just think how bad it would be if we weren't in power."
7. "We are really building and can get things done next session, if you just give us more campaign donations, support, and time."
8. "Trust us."
9. "We can't introduce Articles of Impeachment against any judges right now."
10. "The courts are the problem, not us."
11. Their next Oath of Office.
12. "We are supporting President Bush's stance against illegal immigration."
13. "We have cut all the taxes that can really be cut for now."
14. "Roe v. Wade is that law of the land."
15. "I'm upholding the Constitution."
16. "I had to vote for the federal budget."

Pro-life missionary Steve Lefemine of Columbia Christians for Life, South Carolina, has written an excellent article on the authority Congress and President Bush could use to end abortion right now, and he has brought to light these political facts:

"Republicans hold the majority in the U.S. House by over a 25-vote majority:
231 Republicans to 202 Democrats, plus 1 Independent and 1 vacancy.
Republicans hold the majority in the U.S. Senate as well:
55 Republicansto 44 Democrats, plus 1 Independent.

"Republicans have held the White House since the first inauguration of George W. Bush on January 20, 2001, over four years ago. Since then, over 4 MILLION pre-birth Americans have been murdered on the watch of President George W. Bush and the Republican-majority Congress.


So, dear friends, let's write another letter, and make another phone call telling our elected public servants to take action immediately on the Right to Life Act of 2005 (HR 552). Tell them to end the bloodshed taking place by back-alley abortionists on Main Street America!

After all, it is a matter of life and death!

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

'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

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
