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.

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.

Pat Robertson is Warned!

Pat Robertson is taking it on the chin again. Seems each time he opines on why bad things happen to us, there is someone to call him on it.
Most recently, Dr. Richard Mouw has taken up the challenge in response to Robertson's recent statement on the Las Vegas shooting, in which at least 59 people were killed and more than 500 were wounded in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
In a piece, titled, "You've Been Warned, PatRobertson!" Mouw, for whom I have deep respect, pens,

"It didn’t take long for some preachers to start telling us why God caused the horrible mass murder in Las Vegas to happen. Pat Robertson led the way, declaring that it was divine retribution for the widespread 'disrespect' for Donald Trump in America."
If Robertson had limited his rationale for the Vegas shooting to God punishing us for people dissing the President, I'd be smacking him on the chin myself. But he didn't.

Is Our Knowledge of God Analogical of Univocal?

As a matter of first principles in apologetics, we can ask, “What does the unbeliever know about God?” However, the biblical apologetic is shaped not only by what Scripture says the unbeliever knows, but also by what it reveals he can know; is capable of knowing, as a believer. So we might also ask, “Is it our hope that the unbeliever can know God as God knows himself or that he can know God reflectively, in a creaturely way?” This is the univocal/analogical problem in Christian epistemology. 

The question arises in the context of the structure of human thought. It bears its own unique dilemma. If we stress too excessively that knowledge of God is univocal we run the risk of lowering the incomprehensible God to the level of the finite and make God as one of us. But if we stress too emphatically knowledge of God per analogiam we may very well deprive God of all likeness to the humanity he has created with the result that all we are left with is a barren, abstraction.
