Turn Justice Back to What is Right

Gallup recently conducted their annual Values and Beliefs Survey which indicates more Americans consider themselves to be pro-life than in previous years with 51% of American respondents claiming to be pro-life. The May 2009 survey also reports 23% of the public holds to a 100% pro-life view that abortion should be illegal in all circumstances: “The May 2009 survey documents comparable changes in public views about the legality of abortion. In answer to a question providing three options for the extent to which abortion should be legal, about as many Americans now say the procedure should be illegal in all circumstances (23%) as say it should be legal under any circumstances (22%). This contrasts with the last four years, when Gallup found a strong tilt of public attitudes in favor of unrestricted abortion.” (Source: Gallup, More Americans “Pro-Life” Than “Pro-Choice” for First Time, ) While some

Leaving a Legacy of Faith

Each one of us will eventually face death and while many are uncertain about what lies beyond the grave, the Christian knows for a certainty that heaven awaits them. This knowledge gives us confidence to face mortality and say, “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” (1Cor. 15:55) For we know our Lord “has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel” (2Tim. 1:10). Scripture tells us: “He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the Lord has spoken.” (Isaiah 25:8) “For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd,and he will guide them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” (Rev. 7:17) “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

We can all be a light for Christ right where He has placed us to shine

“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet.” (Matthew 5:13, ESV) I recently read the article “George Barna: America Is Being Destroyed Inside Out ” published in the Christian Post. The article quotes George Barna, a Christian pollster and founder of a research group called the Barna Group as saying: "The enemy of America today is not Iraq. It is not Afghanistan or communism. It is not Somalian pirates. It's the moral degradation and spiritual complacency of Americans... In essence it is the willingness of Americans to become victims of the imposition of values and objectives that defy our common good.” In the same article, Mr. Barna said that “the deterioration of American society is fueled by the breakdown in leadership and core institutions such as family, government, and education.” While I agree that America is imploding d

‘Walk (and dress) in dignity as a child of the King’

Christian commentators have been abuzz with expressing their opinions of Miss USA contestant Carrie Prejean and her public statement of believing marriage is to be between one man and one woman. Some commentators have even proclaimed Miss Prejean to be a new face for conservative values and that the GOP should be courting her as a standard bearer. However, there have been a few godly voices pointing out that Miss Prejean's lack of modesty is not Biblical and perhaps she is not a good role model for Christian girls. I happen to be in this camp and pray Miss Prejean will receive wise godly counsel on Biblical womanhood and the responsibility she has to be modest and present a chaste and pure appearance as a Christian woman, which will give her words and Christian profession more credibility. Sadly, many parents and churches are not teaching young men and women how to act and dress as representatives of Christ and the seductive message their lack of clothing sends to others. Praise th
