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.

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 …
