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!

Kent State, the Summer of 1970 and the Grace of God

  Me in 1975 - Seeking God. Al Baker recently wrote an article on the tragedy of the Kent State demonstrations and the killing of four students in May of 1970:  Four Dead in Ohio ( FORGET NONE OF HIS BENEFITS )  . I remember being 12 years-old at the time this happened and the disagreement between my father (a full-time Air National Guardsman) and myself. I could see that he was pained over the event, but he defended the soldiers who fired on the students and I was shocked at his defense of their actions. I also remember that my friends and I embraced the rebellious culture of the time and soon found ourselves acting like our "heroes;" while we were only in our early teens we became somewhat jaded and mistrusted those in authority. By the time I turned 17 years-old, I began to have a yearning in my heart to become a Christian - I wanted to become a new creation, but I didn't know how. (As a child I remember watching televangelists and reciting the "sinner's praye

Is Satan Real? Here's My Story.

Is Satan real? I think so and here's my story of a frightening experience that drove me straight toward  Christ. My story begins in the early 1970's while visiting the Wisconsin Dells area with my parents, I had brought a friend on vacation with us and she and I decided to walk around the local town square while my parents shopped for food and other items for our two week camping trip at Castle Rock Lake .  Historic Juneau County Courthouse on the town square in Mauston, WI Image Source:  Juneau County Courthouse - Juneau County Courthouse - Wikipedia My friend and I were both in our early teens; but we looked older. So, we were quite flattered when some local teenaged boys sitting on the lawn of the Courthouse noticed us, and we stopped to talk to them. We told them we were from Missouri and would be camping at Castle Rock Lake for the next couple of weeks.  Source:  Castle Rock - Juneau County Government ( I explained that my dad was in the Missouri Air National Guard

Dementia - Seeing through a glass darkly....

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.  ~1Corinthians 13.12 KJV ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I came across this article by Dr. Barry York written in 2014 and posted at Gentle Reformation , which I never read until today. If you have a parent/spouse/friend etc. with dementia and you aren't certain of their salvation, please read this. I think you will find it encouraging. It gives me great hope as my father suffered from dementia before his death earlier this year and who assured me he had asked the Lord for forgiveness while being ill. Salvation in a Dementia Ward Walking down the long hospital hallway, I approached the room in the emergency area where they had told me she would be found. As I came near the door, I found a security guard sitting there. He looked at me with sympathy as I identified myself and, with a warning and sad shaking of his head, gave me permission to enter.
