What did you learn today at church? What was from God’s Word that was preached and taught today that has ministered to you?

Modern-day Dr. Joseph Mengele’s House of Horrors is seen in the video below. Folks, this is the reality of the idolatry of pro-choice. It is a worldview that is hostile to the teachings of God. Whether a baby is chemically or surgically murdered, murder is murder. Don’t be surprised that this man has murdered more children in a single month than all the school shootings in the history of the U.S. combined. If the man used an AR-15, the media would jump to it in a minute. But the truth is that the use of his surgical weapons that he pummels the babies with has killed more innocent people in the U.S. than a gun. That is the reality of a worldview that hates Christ.
Don’t be shocked when you are exposed from a top doctor’s claim stating, “The NHS Kills off 130,000 elderly patients every year.”
“NHS doctors are prematurely ending the lives of thousands of elderly hospital patients because they are difficult to manage or to free up beds, a senior consultant claimed yesterday.” Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/…/Top-doctors-chilling-claim-The…
So if you are ever pressured by doctors to have your elderly loved one killed faster, just know that we are living in a culture of death. We need more Gospel laborers in all spectrum of life–combating evil.
The sacred cow of pro-choice must be exposed for what it is. It needs to submit to the Lordship of Christ. Here is what Francis Shaeffer said over a decade ago which is now a reality. He saw it coming.
“If people are not made in the image of God, the pessimistic, realistic humanist is right: the human race is indeed an abnormal wart on the smooth face of a silent and meaningless universe. In this setting, abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia (including the killing of mentally deranged criminals, the severely handicapped, or the elderly who are an economic burden) are completely logical. Any person can be obliterated for what society at one moment thinks of as its own social or economic good. Without the Bible and without the revelation in Christ (which is only told to us in the Bible) there is nothing to stand between us and our children and the eventual acceptance of the monstrous inhumanities of the age.”
Proverbs 24:11, “Those who are being taken away to death,
And those who are staggering to slaughter,
Oh hold them back.”
I have been blessed in the past of the teaching and preaching ministry of Ligon Duncan. He recently preached at The Master’s Seminary chapel services about two weeks ago. Here’s the video of the sermon he delivered:
Be encouraged! May God use this message to stir you to know more deeply the love of Christ and shapes one’s life.
For the last two weeks on Saturday I’ve been posting a response to a blog post that attacked the Bible specifically with the doctrine of Inerrancy. My first post looked at the only verse the writer cited as positive proof that the Bible itself teaches an errant Bible; that was titled “Does 2 Timothy 4:13 undermine the Doctrine of Inerrancy?” My second post deconstructed a theological argument against Inerrancy and was titled ““You’re Putting God in A Box:” The Irony of this argument against Biblical Inerrancy.”
Here in this post I want to interact with another one of her theological arguments against Biblical inerrancy:
Likewise, people have translated “inspired by God” to mean “God-breathed” to equal “inerrant”. But God first breathed into Adam, and he certainly was not inerrant!
Here we see how the writer thinks that since Adam was God breathed and erred, therefore the Bible being God breathed cannot be inerrant. I think this warrants a closer look.
Besides spiritual readings, I typically take some time to read in other areas as a mental break from ministry. Here’s this weekend’s leisure reading review.
Barbara W. Tuchman. The Guns of August. New York, NY: Presidio Press, August 3rd, 2004. 640 pp.
Ever since the 100 years anniversary of World War One in 2014, I’ve been fascinated with the history of this war especially with the origins of the war and what went on during the early months of the conflict. This work satisfied my curiosities and met my expectations. I must add a word of caution here that this is my first book I have picked up on World War One (currently I’m going through my second by the popular historian Max Hastings).
In the Author’s note Barbara Tuchman tells the story of how the book came to be written and how she originally wanted to write about a story of a particular naval ship while the publishers wanted her to write on something else and the result of that compromise was this book. I’m so glad in the end she did write this book, The Guns of August as I think it had a more lasting legacy and impact than if she wrote her original story. Even after fifty years since she penned this book, it is still popular.
Huffington Post has an article titled “If You Could Invent A Religion, What Would It Look Like?” which tells us that apparently “one organization is paying $5,000 for the best suggestion.” I imagine whatever that made up religion that would win first place wouldn’t look like Christianity. It definitely wouldn’t emphasize on the sinfulness of man–it’s too much an affront against man’s desire for self-righteousness.
According to the HuffPo’s article, “The challenge is being run entirely on Facebook and is one of several contests 92Y is hosting in the lead up to its “7 Days of Genius” festival.” I thought it was interesting that the word “Genius” was invoked. What does God think about it?
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth [l]in unrighteousness,19 because that which is known about God is evident [m]within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.21 For even though they knew God, they did not [n]honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and [o]crawling creatures. 24 Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25 For they exchanged the truth of God for [p]a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed [q]forever. Amen.
Far from genius. The whole endeavor reveal the inclination of man to construct idols. Invent Your Own Religion, You Could Win Up to 5 Grand. But then the costs of making your own religion is not worth it in light of Romans 1:18.
