I Am Not Helpless

“Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?” Proverbs 24:11-12 Isn’t is frustrating to feel helpless? That’s the way I feel this morning after reading the various newsfeeds and seeing video #6 that was released this week from the Center for Medical Progress, …

Lies and Deception

Even though I was in church almost every Sunday, I hadn’t really though too much about the issue of abortion.
