Tax-Payer Funded Abortion

from First Care Family Resources...

I know many of you are enjoying your summer vacations; however, there is something very ugly brewing in Washington that we need to be aware of. We need to take action IMMEDIATLEY!

You have heard a lot on the news recently about the new health care bill. It is troubling on many levels. Most disturbing is that the wholesale provision of abortion is embedded in this proposal.

In a nutshell - the new health care bill seeks to define abortion as mandatory health care. More than once, this bill was referred to as FOCA (Freedom of Choice Act) by stealth. Since there has been so much public opposition to this act, the new health care bill would effectively slip into the bill some of the cornerstones of FOCA. The result would be:

1. The biggest expansion of abortion since Roe v Wade.

2. All tax payers forced to pay for abortions through our tax dollars.

3. All private health plans mandated to provide abortion coverage. This means that all employers would be forced to offer a health plan that covers abortion on demand (including ministries like First Care and churches).

4. There would be no room for conscience in providing abortion - meaning that health care professionals would be forced to offer this "basic health care" or lose their license to practice.

The ramifications of this are staggering on so many levels. What I just can't get my hand or heart around is: when did we as Americans decide that killing our unborn was health care? It isn't curing a disease or providing any kind of care!

Obama and his followers must be stopped on this issue - 51% of Americans say they are pro-life - 71% are opposed to tax payers funding abortion. Our government is NOT representing the majority. Planned Parenthood will receive billions if this happens - they will become incredibly powerful where right now their influence is actually shrinking!

During the month of August when Congress is on break, I strongly encourage you to join me in letting our voices be heard by contacting our senators and representatives and telling them we do not want health care coverage to pay for abortion! The more insistant the voice the better chance to be heard. I encourage us all to be part of this loud voice and encourage others to do the same!

God will have the ultimate victory, but for today He would have us speak for those who cannot. God bless you for all you do to care for the unborn and their moms and dads.

Spurgeon Doesn't Help Us With Trump

Of two evils, choose neither." Spurgeon's quote has been posted numerous times on social media by Christians who find themselves in a moral conundrum at the very thought of voting for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. Here’s the problem with Spurgeon’s idea. Biblically there is no such thing as a choice between two evils. Let me explain.
Moral philosophers and theologians have long spoken of the problem of "tragic moral choice", also known as the “incommensurability in values.” The man on the street simply calls it “choosing between the lesser of two evils.”  
The best known example of tragic moral choice is the one about the Nazis during WW II. Do you handover the Jews knowing that your choice makes you complicit in their deaths? Or do you lie and violate the Ninth Commandment? The Lutheran scholar, John Warwick Montgomery, has argued that such choices are unavoidable and of necessity cause us to sin.
The Bible, however, takes a dim view of the so-called less…

Andy Stanley and the “NEW Hermeneutic”

The problem of faith and reason is longstanding in the history of theology. Augustine held that faith aids reason (credo ut intelligam) and that reason aids faith (intelligo un creadam). The church father is, however, inclined to stress the later over the former. It was with Thomas Aquinas, and his Summa Theologica, that the effort to reconcile faith and reason reached its apex. Rejecting the medieval doctrine of double truth, he placed natural reason prior to faith in effectively every area of the Christian life. The restrictions are the mysteries of the faith that reason cannot penetrate.
Thomas’ affirmation of the high role of native reason in Christian belief is linked to his stress on dialectical method in study, seminally set forth by Peter Abelard. The form of study is dependent largely on logic to argue both sides of a theological question. Christian belief is thus the proper result of process or synthesis. Faith then assents to the final proposition arrived at by reason.

Fighting Abortion is Not the Fourth Sign of the Church

Some Christians are what I call, “single-issue.” I recall one family that left a church because everything did not revolve around Evangelism Explosion. But that's just one issue.
The issue I'm thinking about is abortion on demand. Some concerned Christians expect their pastor to thunder away almost each week on this topic, or at least mention it. He must make it is his central motif. He must protest outside the abortion clinic. If he doesn’t, he can say he’s against abortion all he likes, but it’s not enough.
Motivating the single-issue congregant is a deeper judgment. He thinks that the ultimate reason abortion on demand still happens is because pastors let it. Churches let it.
As one who has taken a virulent stand against abortion, both in the pulpit and with pen, I can say without qualification, “I hate it.”  Period. I pray the day that Roe is overturned. Nonetheless, as a former pastor, an as one who may return to the pulpit someday, here’s the bottom line.
We are called to …
