Doctrine is Not a Matter of Life and Death - Doctrine is not a matter of life and death. It is a matter of life or death. You cannot have both death and life. It is one or the other. And what you truly believe has eternal implications: either eternity with Christ or eternity in Hell. It is that serious. – Chris Brauns
So What if Abortion Ends a Life? Rare Candor from the Culture of Death - In premeditated candor Mary Elizabeth Williams declares that the unborn child is a human life, but not a human life worthy of respect or protection. As Williams insists, “I would put the life of a mother over the life of a fetus every single time — even if I still need to acknowledge my conviction that the fetus is indeed a life.” She candidly calls the unborn child a human life, and then ends her argument with this — ”a life worth sacrificing.” The Culture of Death is rarely so candid, but this is the undisguised logic behind the case for abortion rights. The unborn human baby is just “a life worth sacrificing.” Read it and weep. – Al Mohler
Should Christians pledge allegiance to the United States’ flag? - Indivisible may be the most troubling word in the whole of the pledge. I have no desire to see the nation divided. We are not expressing here, however, a wish that it will not be divided but a conviction that it cannot be divided. This is, in essence, a claim that the union is immortal, a claim to deity. This nation is most assuredly not indivisible. – R.C. Sproul, Jr.
