Has our society already reached the sinful state of Sodom and Gomorrah? The ungodly in our nation are attempting to get federal laws passed that would legalize immorality.
- GAY BILL OF SPECIAL RIGHTS which will create a super-class of sexual deviants, establish mandatory quotas of homosexuals employees for businesses, churches and even daycare centers, and make it impossible for anyone to ever fire a homosexual employee.
- HOMOSEXUAL CLASSROOMS ACT which will force every school to introduce homosexual curriculum designed to indoctrinate young, impressionable minds into sexual and social deviancy.
- OFFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT which will repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and force every state in the Union to embrace homosexual “marriages” even states which have already voted to defend the sanctity of marriage as one man and one woman.
The Roe versus Wade decision by the Supreme Court in 1973 that legalized abortions has resulted in the murder of millions of unborn infants. It is now estimated that there have been well over 50 million unborn infants murdered.
You and I must abstain from the very appearance of evil. Not only that, but we must keep our self from becoming spotted of the sinful world.
- I Thess. 5:22, “Abstain from all appearance of evil.”
- James 1:27, “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”
- I John 2:15-17, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.”

As opposed to God, human beings often make laws that are either unnecessary or contradictory. In such cases it turns the legal system upside-down. This certainly is the case with our abortion laws (i.e., the "legal" killing of the most innocent among us).
For example, a mother goes to an abortion clinic (i.e., a slaughter house) and with "legal" consent has a doctor perform a "legal" murder on her unborn child. Just down the street, in the same town, the same doctor, pulls a knife and kills an unborn child without the consent of the mother. In the the first instance, the doctor receives money for his deed. While, in the second instance, the doctor receives first-degree murder charges for his deed: Same deed. The only real difference, and I stress the only real difference, in the two instances is that one child is wanted by the mother and the other is not! The legal system is upside-down!
This is how the "law" plays out in the News:
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Formal charges were filed Monday in the death of a Blanchard mother. Late Monday afternoon, Justin Adams was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, one for his wife, Jaymie Adams, and the other for her unborn child. (Sarah Stewart Reporting KFOR-TV, February 14, 2012).
Now, my question is a simple one: Why is Justin Adams being charged with two counts of first-degree murder? Here is the fundamental and only real reason from our "upside-down" legal system's perspective... Justin is not a doctor and did it without Jaymie's consent.
My heart goes out to Jaymie's family and my prayers go up for this family in their distress. May God comfort them in their loss.

Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania is now selling the "morning-after" pill via a vending machine... For $25, people with access to campus health services at Shippensburg can buy Plan B from a machine, just like they would a soda or a bag of chips.
Well, let's see..
- Because college kids will drink, we need to lower the drinking age!
- Because college kids will engage in sexual misbehavior, we need to supply them with condemns.
- Because some college kids don't/won't use condemns or because those condemns are not 100% reliable we need to supply them with easy access to the death pill.
Why is it that our colleges and universities must always appeal to the lowest common denominator in ethics. It would seem, ethically, that they have become places of "lower" rather than "higher" education.
No need to take Human Sexuality 101. They have a special one stop birth control machine. It sells condoms, pregnancy test and Plan B One-Step emergency contraceptives. Students at our colleges and universities deserve better than to have their administration represent the potent drug with life-ending potential as no more harmful than a Snickers bar.
"From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment" (Isa. 1:6).

The latest news is that the Komen foundation has been bulled back into the fold of Planned Parenthood. I do pity the Komen foundation who now must realize that they are not calling the shots in their own foundation. It is true that when you lie down with dogs you get up with flees.
A friend of mine recently sent me his appraisal of the situation:
As the former President George Bush said “make no distinction between terrorists and the nations that harbor them–and hold both to account” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bush_Doctrine). And what is abortion if not terrorism? It is the worst type of terrorism because it is launched against those who cannot defend themselves in any way form or fashion. So as our former President says we “make no distinction between terrorists and the nations (in our case organizations) that harbor them–and hold both to account.” It is time to hold Susan G. Komen accountable for the 4000 innocent people that it endorses murdering each and every day in this nation. We need a boycott against the Susan G. Komen foundation.
To illustrate how far these thugs will go in their passion to continue the killings for convenience they hacked into the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organizational website and instead of going to www.komen.org people were directed to a bogas ww5.koman.org which changed the graphic on the front page that used to say such inspirational slogans as “Help us get 26.2 or 13.1 miles closer to a world without breast cancer,” the graphic now read “Help us run over poor women on our way to the bank.”
Women who were seeking counseling about breast cancer now were violated with the thuggery of those who support the Planned Parenthood abusive tactics. Evidently, these people care more about who gets the money than they do about the women's heath.
What's next for these thugs? Make no doubt about my friends, this is a battle about the life and death of the most innocent among us... but it has been and will continue to be fought in the green trenches of MONEY. How about putting your money where your mouth is... Governor Bloomberg did, announcing he would match up to $250,000 in donations to offset the expected funding cuts to Planned Parenthood.
You may not be able to match Governor Bloomberg's wallet, but now would be a good time to let the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization know that you too are willing to put your money where your mouth is in this battle for life and death of both mother's and babies.

Frist, I sent brother Montgomery, as well as others the article entitled: "Turning the Tide" above. Here was his response...
I agree! Life is life and no person has the right to determine who has the right to life. God is the giver of life! I cannot forget that one of my nephews weighed less that two pounds at birth. Yes, he had some challenges at the beginning, but now he is a normal healthy seven year old. Under the current mindset he would have been terminated prior to birth, but that option was never on the table.
The thing that "sickens" me is that career politicians make this a "hot button" issue during their election campaign and then table it until the next election. Babies are being aborted 24/7 365 days a year. Politicians have the power to stop it, but there is too much political clout attached to the "pro-life" position to really write legislation to put an end to abortions.
When the final trumpet sounds and time shall be no more... someone will be accountable for every soul that was deprived the right to live.
You are absolutely correct and its high time that Christian's not only realized this but held these politicians feet to the proverbial fire on this issue. We can and should demand this before the 40th Anniversary of Roe vs Wade (January 22, 2013)!
General Norman Schwarzkopf wrote down this statement one week before the First Persian Gulf War... "War is the remedy that our enemies have chosen, and I say let us give them all they want."
Brother Montgomery's response... AMEN!
My love to brother Montgomery. Spend some time today encouraging a brother or sister in Christ to Gird up; Stand up; Speak up; Bear up and Look up (Jer. 1:17-19).
