Not our own, or alone, we belong to God! PDF Print E-mail

Boy with valentineValentine’s Day can be lonely, dissappointing, and painful if we accept the world’s view of romantic love. The following excerpt from Not My Own, by Terry Schlossberg and the late Elizabeth Achtemeier, clarifies Whose we are and how we are loved by Him.

The Biblical Good News

Over against the empty desolation of individualism that undergirds abortion, however, the Bible sets a different announcement about the nature of human life, and that announcement is indeed good news. First of all, in the biblical world-view, there is no such thing as an autonomous individual. Rather, in its very first pages, the Bible proclaims that we are all made by God in his image (Gen. 1:26-27) and that we can therefore never fully be understood except in relation to our Creator. Psychology, sociology, economics, medicine, art, every branch of humanities and of science may describe our humanity, but unless our relationship to God is included in that description, we have not been fully and accurately described. We were created to live in relationship with our Maker, and that relationship is an integral part of our humanity.

SOHLS: Remembering 40 Years and over 50 million lives PDF Print E-mail
Written by Marie Bowen   

Sanctity of Human Life Sunday (SOHLS) will be celebrated in churches across the nation this Sunday, January 20, 2013. In sermons, prayers, and songs, worshipers will acknowledge God as our Creator and affirm our identity as persons made in his image and set apart for his glory and service.

Motte Brown wrote this account of the establishment of SOHLS in 2007. It is currently posted on Boundless Line:

In 1983, an organization named Christian Action Council (now known as Care Net), founded with the help of Francis Schaeffer and former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, asked President Ronald Reagan to "create a special day to focus on the intrinsic value of human life."

The Biblical meaning of '40' PDF Print E-mail
Written by Rev. Justin Lee Marple   

This is the fortieth anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. In Scripture the number forty signifies a time of testing or temptation. The most famous time of testing in the Old Testament was when the Hebrew people wandered in the desert or wilderness for forty years until an entire generation of the tribes counted in the census had died (save Joshua and Caleb). And so forty years has come to mean a generation. A generation of legalized abortion has meant that an estimated fifty five million children or more have been killed before they had a chance to take a breath on their own.

SOHLSpromoSunday, January 20, 2013, churches all over America will hold special services of remembering the 50 million lives destroyed by abortion in America since the legalizing of abortion by the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision 40 years ago. The somber 40th anniversary is a time to mourn and remember innocent lives taken from the wombs of their mothers. It is a time to grieve, a time to pray, a time to repent on behalf of our nation's callous indifference to the treasure of human life.

There is only life in the Kingdom of God PDF Print E-mail
Written by Rev. Lowell Avery   

After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the Gospel of God. "The time has come," He said. "The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent and believe the Gospel." — Mark 1.14f

I, for one, am looking forward to the day when the Kingdom of God is fully come and there is no more death of any kind, especially abortion. I know that before God all sin is horrible, but I cannot imagine any worse crime against a fellow human being. We all bear the mark of sin from conception, but there is no human more helpless and less worthy of death than a child in the mother's womb. If there is any motivation for me to ask the Lord Jesus to come quickly, even while working to call more into the kingdom and to help us all become more and more transformed into the likeness of Christ, seeing abortion end is it.
