All People Have Value

I remember standing in front of the horrid Granite City, Illinois abortion mill (named the Hope Clinic) several years ago holding a graphic dismembered baby sign. At the time the death camp staff was irate with the protesters and came out to take pictures of us as a form of intimidation. As the death camp worker and a security guard came near me, someone mentioned they wanted to "see Jesus" from the protesters. I held up my sign to the worker and security guard and said "Take a look. This baby was made in God's image." Not too long afterward the security guard died; I often wonder if he repented and accepted Christ before his sudden death.

The point I was trying to make to the death camp workers is that all children are God's handiwork and it is not for any man (or woman) to say that one life has more or less value than others; yet this is what we do in our modern culture. We pit mother against child and tell her that if her baby is conceived in less than ideal circumstances, she has every right to kill it. She won't be held responsible for the taking of that life, nor will she be prosecuted for murder. After all, she is a woman who has been given a legal right to kill unwanted children while they are still in her womb.

This disregard for the wonderful gift of life has a domino effect... Soon we hear of mothers and fathers choosing to end a child's life because he or she may have defects. After all, the child might be born with a physical or mental defect that would take away some imagined quality of life for either the parents or the child. My question is who made you a critic of God's handiwork? All life is precious. All human beings have worth and were created to serve a purpose in God's world. Even those who aren't perfect (and who of us is?) bring depth, substance and beauty to God's earth. They are as precious as spring flowers that appear after a long, cold winter. They add love, compassion and beauty to our lives.

Friends, all people have value and we need to tell others this truth. Committing the act of murder upon the preborn will not help in any circumstance - no matter how difficult the situation. It will only destroy individuals, families and societies.

Please, as the good Lord enables, do what you can to share His truth and love with those around you. Show the world Jesus.

May the good Lord bless you each and everyone.


  1. Hi Debbie! Thanks for your comment... Perhaps I should explain that my motive is not to use inflammatory language when writing about prenatal child killing, but to be completely truthful with my readers as to what abortion is. I strongly believe that until we (the Church) look at "abortion" through a Biblical lens (as God sees it), it won't be eradicated in our nation. My intention in this editorial was to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (the preborn) and to also impart a Christian message to the unsaved. As we know, one must be confronted with their sin in order to see their need of a savior. It isn't something I take lightly... My words are spoken after much prayer and personal soul searching.

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
