Pregnancy, is it‘punishment’ or blessing? PDF Print E-mail

That raises another question: What is the source of wisdom in decision-making for today’s Christian?

Lately, media voices have raised the question, "Why are we still talking about this after 40 years?" 'This' being abortion. The question comes from Roe v. Wade supporters who want abortion to stay legal. They are frustrated that the 'losers' in this debate—those convinced that the child in the womb has a right to live—will not accept their loss, go away, and be silent.

I'm one of the 'losers'. I've lost all the blessing God intended to bring through the 55 million babies aborted in America since 1973. I have also lost as a woman in the Presbyterian Church USA.

Practical things that you can do

Fotolia 5931389 XSPresbyterians Pro-Life believes that all innocent human life should be protected from conception until natural death. Since Roe v. Wade approximately 55 million pre-born children have been killed in the United States alone. One of the consequences of this is changing attitude and acceptance of assisted suicide for those at the end of life. In Europe there is even active euthanasia of those at the end of life. I can remember in the 1970s my grandfather telling me that making abortion legal in America would start us on the road to euthanasia. His foresight was accurate. Genocide may be coming next. Collin Brewer, a councilor (city council member) of Wadebridge East in North Cornwall, England, said that "Disabled children place too great a burden on the country's nationalized health care and other services and ought to be 'put down' to save money."

Mary and the Angel GabrielOn Sunday, March 24 Roman Catholics and Protestants celebrated Palm Sunday. But on Monday, March 25 most evangelical Protestants will sit out as Roman Catholics will celebrate one of the most significant events in the New Testament: the angel Gabriel's announcement to Mary that she would give birth to Jesus. Why?

That is a very good question. One might expect evangelical Protestants to be among the most enthusiastic celebrants of what is known as the Annunciation. For starters, it focuses on two issues that theologically conservative Protestants have long defended against theological liberals: the historicity of the Virgin Birth, and Christ's unique divinity.

The Gifts of Dying PDF Print E-mail

Pam and her Dad“…this fullness of experience is so necessary to our souls that perpetual springtime is not allowed.” C.S. Lewis

The seventh anniversary of my dad’s death just passed in January. He had terminal cancer and died one week after his 63rd birthday. It’s a tricky thing writing about some else’s death and the lessons learned from it. Sympathy can only take you so far down the road; holding a hand, praying, sitting through chemo day after day, monitoring medication, laughing and crying are about as close as a person can get without experiencing it. It was after all, ultimately my dad’s journey with God. But God, in His mercy, allowed me the privilege of experiencing my own journey along side my dad and I am grateful that I had eyes to see, ears to hear and hands to hold the gifts God had for me.
