Today's Holocaust

Since the attacks of 9/11, I believe we have lost about 6,000 lives in the war on terror. During that same time period, about 6,000,000 unborn babies have been killed through abortion in the United States. These people were denied their lives because of a choice.

The slave traders and owners convinced themselves that black people were sub-human, so they could rationalize slavery. The Nazis convinced the Germans that Jews were sub-human and they were allowed to try to rid a continent of a whole race. Today, we are being sold the lie that unborn babies are not human beings and can therefore be killed at will. This is wrong and it's the issue for our country, in my opinion.

  1. Your post echoed my own thoughts on abortion, the ugly underbelly of America that is spoken of in such self-righteous euphemisms as "choice" and a "woman's right". It alarms me that young women are being sold on this "choice" without all the information. Try to give those same women the information they need to make the proper choice and you are marked as a fanatic or as somehow harming their psyche in a delicate time. The media will never tell the true story of how many of these women ARE NOT being given real choice or full information in these purely FOR PROFIT houses of death or of how many of them truly regret their decisions for the rest of their lives. As a senior in high school, I found out I was pregnant by my boyfriend. I thought we would be together forever, as do many young women. I needed his support. I received it half-heartedly, until his father intervened. A man of many means, he made it clear he would not help us (financially) unless that "help" was to pay for it to be "taken care of". My boyfriend and I went to a Planned Parenthood (what a joke of a name) clinic. I was NEVER once spoken to about my "choices". They simply had me fill out paperwork and pay them the money. I cried while filling out the paperwork and not a word was said to me. I started to bawl uncontrollably while they took my labs and still not a single word passed the lips of the staff. They mechanically went through the motions of doing their jobs without the slightest care about my emotional wellbeing. I never wanted to be there in the first place, had been strong-armed into going, guilt-tripped into feeling that was the only way to ensure the futures of my boyfriend and myself (like his father truly cared about my future) and a battle started to take place on that cold table, sitting there in my hospital gown. I knew, knew in my gut, my heart, that it was wrong to take a life and this WAS a life, regardless of what most everyone around me was saying at the time. I stood up with my knees shaking hard and demanded my clothes. A nurse gave me a look for a moment and then just shrugged. I got dressed and went back to the front. They were cold and harsh with me, a child with a face puffy from crying, only saying that I couldn't get it all back because the labs had already been drawn. The money didn't mean a thing to me. I handed the balance to my shocked boyfriend and I told him to take me home. I glanced around the waiting room and my heart hurt, looking at all the very young faces also full of fear and questions I knew would not be answered for them in that place. I grew up a lot that day, years and years ago. About a month later, I miscarried my child, probably from the severe stress. I don't question God about His plan in all of it and since that time He has blessed me greatly. I am now happily married (to someone else) with two extremely wonderful children, aged 9 and 16 years. Do I think about that child, yes and with sorrow. But I am so very grateful that I did not go through with an abortion that day and I hope to touch others with my story. Take care and God bless you and your family.

The Two Disciples and The Two Donkeys

When they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus gave two disciples a task.  He said to them, “Go into the village over there. As soon as you enter, you will find a donkey tied up and a colt with it. Untie them and bring them to me.  If anybody says anything to you, say that the Lord needs it.” He sent them off right away.  Now this happened to fulfill what the prophet said,  Say to Daughter Zion, “Look, your king is coming to you, humble and riding on a donkey, and on a colt the donkey’s offspring.”  The disciples went and did just as Jesus had ordered them.  They brought the donkey and the colt and laid their clothes on them. Then he sat on them.
-Matthew 21:1-7

On what we call Palm Sunday, Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem. But, he had two disciples get two donkeys: a mother donkey and her colt. Jesus rode the young male who had never been ridden before. In his carefulness and perhaps kindness towards these two donkeys, he had th…

Teaching vs. Indoctrination

As usual, Paul went to the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days reasoned with them from the Scriptures.
-Acts 17:2

There is a difference between teaching and indoctrination.  Education is not indoctrination.  But some secular and christian education is indoctrination masquerading as education.

If you are a teacher, whether you homeschool your children, teach at the pro level or you teach in your church; it is good to know this difference between indoctrination and true teaching.  Many people are indoctrinated today, rather than taught.

What you might notice, is that when you preach, whether you preach to a crowd or a few, it is easy to be an indoctrinator rather than a true teacher.  True teachers ask people questions and expect them to challenge and debate them.

God's Secret, Hidden People

(The children) of Elam 1,254.  -Ezra 2:7

Do you feel hidden?

The name Elam means secret or hidden.  Do you feel like you are on the shelf, not being used by God?  Maybe you are part of God's secret agents.

God has people who are in secret.

I have this idea that God has His attention on secret people.   I believe that God has rewards for secret people coming.  You may feel on the shelf, but you are actually hidden for a special purpose.  God has you in reserve.

The number one thousand, two-hundred, and fifty-four; tells us God's plan for his hidden, secret, and in reserve children

One thousand speaks of recompense.

Recompense means that you will be compensated or made amends to, due to harm or loss you suffered. In Genesis 20:16 is the story of Abimelech recompensing Abraham and Sarah.

Two speaks of fellowship, partnership, and co-laboring (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12).

There are hidden people who have felt like they are "going it alone", who are about to be joined by someone.  …
