What a day at Planned Murderhood. I will not be able to explain all the details. Further details will be provided through video and perhaps another blog post on some of the conversations I had with people, in the near future. As of now, I will provide snapshots. The work of God spanned from conversations with other believers, PP patients, critics, unbelievers, etc. Please pray because a lady approached me and indicated that she is working on a pro-life video; and stated that our participation maybe needed. At any rate, here are some main highlights from today. I request that the body of Christ be in prayer for these people because the war in the heart is strong. Only Christ can break the bondage of sin. One highlight was Saul. Please pray for him. He saw me with a sign outside PP while strolling down in his truck. He was scoffing at us. I asked him if I can speak with him for a few minutes while he was in his car. He said yes. Hence, I walked towards his truck, challenging his worldview and then presented his desperate need for Christ. He denied the existence of God and supported the murder of babies even though he does not view it as murder. I argued that apart from God you fall prey to relativistic thinking. The conversation was cordial and at the end of the conversation, he gave me his number. As a result, I will try to set-up a future meeting with him. I don’t know, but it seems like Saul enjoyed the conversation. Another encounter I had was with a young lady who was on her way into the doors of PP. I informed her that PP is guilty of murder and supports the continual annihilation of pre-born babies. I also presented the neccessity of the Gospel and exhorted her to come to Christ. Praise God because near the end of the conversation, she decided not to enter PP, but go to Alternative Women’s Center that is pro-life. At the end I asked if I could pray for her and she complied. Another blessed moment was an encounter with a solid brother from a Prysbyterian Church in Temecula, CA that Pastor Luke and I met. We were both able to open-air preach for a few minutes outside PP. We exchanged numbers and hope for more Gospel partnerships. Praise God. His message was God-honoring and Christ-centered. I am immensely blessed that the Lord would send down like-minded believers. The Lord of the Harvest answered our prayers.
Many Christians from our church and elsewhere came too. I pray that the Lord will continue to embolden them more and more because they made an impact today. There are so many stories to share, but I hope that the readers of this post will be encouraged and incited to go out and reach the lost.
By way of update, a young lady whom me and another brother ministered to that week on Thursday, met up with a sister from my local church. When we first spoke to her, she was broken and needed guidance from the Lord concerning her past experience with abortion. Praise God, that she met a sister yesterday. I received word that she was open to hearing the Gospel and will be joining our church service this Sunday.

In a tweet railing Presidential candidate Ted Cruz, Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens claimed that there are “polls showing the majority of the American public supports continued federal funding for PP.”
I’ve been seeing Planned Parenthood supporters on social media claiming the moral high gounds with this statistics but I want to definitely interact with someone more official and the executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood certaintly fits the bill.
What is the source for Dawn Laguens’ claim? She provides a link in her tweet to a Progressive Liberal website called “Think Progress.” I’m more interested in finding the original source behind her source from a Liberal webpage.
What are we to make of Planned Parenthood’s claim and also the implied argument utilizing this claim?

Duane A. Garrett. A Commentary on Exodus. Grand Rapids: Kregel Publications, November, 1st, 2014. 741 pp.
I must begin with a bit of a personal note. Many years ago when I was a young Christian I had used the author’s commentary on Hosea and Joel that was my first real exposure to an exegetical commentary. I was blown away. I was likewise blown away with Duane Garrett’s recent commentary on Exodus. Of course this time around I am much older and I felt I was able to benefit more from Garrett exegetical insights than when I was a young college student reading through Hosea and Joel. Garrett has done an excellent job with his Exodus commentary.
The Introduction was well over a hundred page. I appreciated Garrett’s point that many commentators on Exodus have neglected the important contribution of Egyptology and one sees Garrett’s tremendous effort in bringing up-to-date scholarship from Egyptology to bear concerning Introductory matters of the book of Exodus. In particular I thought his discussion of anything chronological stood out, especially with the dating of the events of Exodus. It is incredibly detailed: He considers the difficulties of Egyptian method of counting how many days are to be in a year, when various Pharaohs ruled and archaeological findings in the area of Canaan as he weighs the pros and cons of various arguments for the late or early dating of the book. I think it is worth getting the book for the Introduction alone. While he does not come to a fixed conclusion of when the events of Exodus takes place nevertheless his interaction of the arguments of the various views is a good summary of the various views.
