A Quote from Ravi Zacharias

"When the foundation of a building gives way, the structure is in trouble. So what happens when the moral foundations of a culture erode?"

Killing one day, Saving the next

This following is an email update I received from my friend Sherry Pierce. Sherry heads up a local team of Christians that regularly spend time at local Phoenix area abortion clinics, pleading with those seeking to terminate their pregnancies to reconsider what they are about to do.  Recently, Sherry found out  information regarding some of the physicians working there.  Please keep Sherry and her team in prayer.
Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center is a well respected hospital with a 100 year legacy of saving lives. They are a level 1 trauma unit and a level 3 perinatal unit. They have received awards for their perinatal practices. They are considered one of the best hospitals to go to in a high risk pregnancy situation. Many have traveled across the country to have in utero surgery on their preborn children.

We found out months ago that David Orenstein, who is the abortionist at Planned Parenthood had practicing privileges there. I called several times and initially they seemed very concerned and assured me they could contact me asap. I was never contacted and when I continued to call, he (Larry Volkmar) dodged my calls. He is no longer the CEO as of April 26th, so I called today for the new CEO Steve Narang.
But since my initial contact with them, we have since learned more disturbing news. Not only do they have 1 but they have 3 abortionists! Paul Isaacson and Eleanor Stanley also have practicing privileges at Banner Good Samaritan. They are both abortionists at Family Planning and Assoc on 7th St in Phx.
They were featured in this recent undercover video done by live action. If you haven't seen it I strongly urge you to watch it.


After my contact with them today, I was emailed by Jeff Nelson who is the public relations director whom I then called and spoke with. In a nutshell, he basically told me that even though these "Drs" are abortionists they aren't doing anything illegal----he said though he respects "my opinion", that it is immoral, but that's just my opinion and people are entitled to their opinions. He stated they are not allowed to suspend their practicing privileges if they have not done anything illegal. Supposedly they have strict guidelines for Physicians and if a Dr submits for privileges they cannot deny them if they have not done anything illegal. I don't believe that. How can this be that they do surgeries in the womb to save little babies and yet allow those who dismember babies piece by piece, be a part of their establishment
 It is appalling that a hospital that is known for all of its perinatal medical advancements and life saving skills has these butchers that can lurk the halls of this establishment at anytime they choose!

I told him that I would be contacting people all across this nation to let them know their practices. I also told him that it is not "my opinion" God commands us not to murder and they are being accomplices in those murders by allowing them in their corridors to prey on their patients. I have since emailed him with the link that I have included here to prove that they are doing illegal actions and my hope and prayer is that it will cause them to revoke their privileges.

If they refuse we will need to plan an Awareness Campaign outside of the hospital and we would love you to pray about joining us in it. It is a huge hospital and people need to know that they harbor those who slaughter the most innocent among us!

Please be in prayer for God to convict their hearts about this. Also please contact Jeff Nelson. I have included his contact info along with their mission statement that was attached to his email. It is our prayer that he will be flooded with calls from many Christians calling them to repentance. Please remember that you belong to Christ so if you call or email, please conduct yourself as such:) Also please spread the word. Facebook this, tweet...get the word out to the pro life community.

Abortion Awareness Campaign: Paradise Valley

This in from our friend Sherry Pierce and the local (Phoenix area) team regarding a local abortion provider. Here is the original email from Sherry and the video below:

Hi everyone,

It's here! The video you've prayed for from the event that some of you took part in physically and many more of you spiritually through prayer. Some of you may not have been aware of this event at all. An abortion awareness campaign was held in front of David Orenstein's home in Paradise Valley 2 weeks ago. It was designed to expose the evil deeds of darkness. David Orenstein murders babies continually at multiple Planned Parenthood's across the valley. He doesn't care that we stand out in front of that house of horrors, however when you stand in front of his house, it is a different story. In his community he is respected as a "Dr" but after this campaign, many now know what and who he truly is.  This  video shows it better than any update ever could.

 God used our dear brother Rudy Gonzales to do an amazing job in putting this video together. It just over 7 minutes long and it is powerful! Thank you Rudy for all of your hard work!

 Please forward this video to as many people as you can think of, post it on Facebook, tweet it, or post it on your blog or wherever else but get it out there.

 This video also calls people to write to him so please send it out. It would be great if it went viral...Lord willing.
Can you imagine if this murderer who calls himself a Dr were to get letters from all across the country as well as other countries calling him to repentance? Imagine what God might do through that. That reminds me, if you haven't written to him yet, it's not too late, please do!

Our prayer is that God will use this to spur others into action, as well as glorify Himself.

The Law of God is Good

The Law of God is good

by Mathias Loy

The law of God is good and wise,
And sets His will before our eyes,
Shows us the way of righteousness,
And dooms to death when we transgress.
Its light of holiness imparts
The knowledge of our sinful hearts,
That we may see our lost estate
And seek deliverance ere too late.
To those who help in Christ have found
And would in works of love abound
It shows what deeds are His delight
And should be done as good and right.
When men the offered help disdain
And willfully in sin remain,
Its terror in their ear resounds
And keeps their wickedness in bounds.
The law is good, but since the fall
Its holiness condemns us all;
It dooms us for our sin to die
And has no power to justify.
To Jesus we for refuge flee,
Who from the curse has set us free,
And humbly worship at His throne,
Saved by His grace through faith alone.

All mankind fell in Adam's fall

by Lazarus Spengler

From one to all the curse descends,
 All mankind fell in Adam's fall,
One common sin infects us all;
From one to all the curse descends,
And over all God's wrath impends.
Through all our powers corruption creeps
And us in dreadful bondage keeps;
In guilt we draw our infant breath
And reap its fruits of woe and death.
From hearts depraved, to evil prone,
Flow thoughts and deeds of sin alone;
God's image lost, the darkened soul
Nor seeks nor finds its heavenly goal.
But Christ, the second Adam, came
To bear our sin and woe and shame,
To be our Life, our Light, our Way,
Our only Hope, our only Stay.
As by one man all mankind fell
And, born in sin, was doomed to hell,
So by one Man, who took our place,
We all received the gift of grace.
We  thank Thee, Christ; new life is ours,
 New light, new hope, new strength, new powers:
This grace our every way attend
Until we reach our journey's end!

An Open Letter to My Pro-Choice Neighbor

Thanks to Rob-roy Nelson for finding this article.
We have been neighbors for many years, and on several occasions you have both expressed some consternation about my position on abortion. You have told me that when you have discussed this with our other neighbors, none of them can comprehend how I can take a position that “sets women’s rights back fifty years.” As you know, a few of our neighbors have even gotten angry, especially during those months leading up to elections, arguing that I want to let politicians control private medical decisions.
You asked me if I could give you one good reason why you should change your view. I can and will. The reason why I oppose abortion, and the reason why you should oppose abortion is actually quite simple, and it is this: The fetus is a human being.

Boy Scouts may soon welcome gay youths, leaders

Local troops could decide for themselves whether to change their membership policy or continue to exclude gays

As early as next week, the Boy Scouts of America may announce it will allow gay Scouts and troop leaders, a spokesman for the group has told USA TODAY.

If this policy shift is approved by the national board meeting next week, it will be a sharp reversal of the Scouts' decades-old national policy banning homosexuals.
"The policy change under discussion would allow the religious, civic or educational organizations that oversee and deliver Scouting to determine how to address this issue," BSA spokesman Deron Smith said in a statement to USA TODAY.

Infallible Proofs

 "To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God." (Acts 1:3)

To the first Christians, faith in the deity of Christ was not a blind leap into the dark. Only God could defeat death, and they knew--beyond all doubt--that Jesus Christ had risen bodily from the tomb. They had seen Him, touched Him, and eaten with Him, alone and in crowds, in closed rooms, and out in the open.
The term "infallible proofs" translates a Greek word used only this one time, meaning literally "many criteria of certainty," and it is significant that the inspired Word of God applies it only to the resurrection of Christ. It is not too much to say that Christ's resurrection is the most certain fact in all history, and many large volumes have been published setting forth the evidences thereof. No wonder the apostle Peter could say, "We have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty" (2 Peter 1:16).
The apostle John testified thus: "The life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us" (1 John 1:2). John not only saw Him in His resurrection body, but also in His glorified body, hearing Him say, "I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore" (Revelation 1:18).
It is true that we, like the first Christians, must believe on Christ to receive salvation, but this faith is not a credulous faith, a leap into the dark. It is a reasonable faith, based on many infallible proofs, and we can, therefore, trust Him with our eternal souls.

THE GIGLIO IMBROGLIO -- The public inauguration of a new Moral McCarthyism

by R. Albert Mohler Jr.

Al Mohler

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) -- A new chapter in America's moral revolution came today as Atlanta pastor Louie Giglio withdrew from giving the benediction at President Obama's second inaugural ceremony. In a statement released to the White House and the Presidential Inaugural Committee, Giglio said he withdrew because of the furor that emerged yesterday (Jan. 9) after a liberal watchdog group revealed that almost 20 years ago he had preached a sermon in which he had stated that homosexuality is a sin and that the "only way out of a homosexual lifestyle … is through the healing power of Jesus."

In other words, a Christian pastor has been effectively disinvited from delivering an inaugural prayer because he believes and teaches Christian truth.

The fact that Giglio was actually disinvited was made clear in a statement from Addie Whisenant of the Presidential Inaugural Committee:

Louie Giglio
"We were not aware of Pastor Giglio's past comments at the time of his selection, and they don't reflect our desire to celebrate the strength and diversity of our country at this inaugural. Pastor Giglio was asked to deliver the benediction in large part because of his leadership in combating human trafficking around the world. As we now work to select someone to deliver the benediction, we will ensure their beliefs reflect this administration's vision of inclusion and acceptance for all Americans."

The Second Anointing of Modern-day Mormonism

Thanks to Rob-roy Nelson for sending this article my way.

 Latter-day Saint Tom Phillips was an Area Executive Secretary for the Mormon Church in the United Kingdom when an LDS General Authority invited him to receive his Second Anointing in the Preston England Temple. On Sunday, 19 May 2002, Mr. Phillips and his wife received their “second endowment,” in the company of four additional worthy couples, under the leadership of Mormon Apostle M. Russell Ballard. Eighteen months later Mr. Phillips’ faith in Mormonism was beginning to crumble. Tom Phillips presents a detailed chronicle of his experience and the little-discussed Second Anointing temple ordinance on his webpage at Mormon Think. According to his account, in the days leading up to his special endowment,
