Aborted Babies Found in Michigan Dumpster

By Peter J. Smith

LANSING, Michigan, October 27, 2010 ( – Tighter legislation on the abortion industry is in the works after a local pro-life group revealed evidence of two abortion clinics having disposed aborted fetal remains with other bio-hazardous waste and medical documents in a dumpster.

According to Citizens for a Pro-Life Society (CPLS), the Michigan Attorney General and Saginaw County sheriffs concluded last Friday their 7-month investigation of two Woman's Choice abortion clinics in Delta Township and Saginaw. Click here to read the full article


It just saddens my heart to no end when I read articles such as this one. It seems like the value of human life is not worth anything today when it comes to the world standard of seeking one's own desires and pleasures.

President Obama Endorses LGBT Youth 'Spirit Day'

By Kathleen Gilbert

WASHINGTON, D.C., October 22, 2010 ( - President Barack Obama has issued a message exhorting young people who consider themselves homosexual to "be true to" themselves and recognize their sexual tendencies as "a source of pride, and a source of strength."

Obama issued the remarks in the wake of a nationwide "Spirit Day" in which celebrities, media, and schools across the nation wore purple to express solidarity with homosexual youths who have committed suicide. Click here to read the full story.


This is a very passionate and heartfelt speech that our president is giving to the young folks out there that are being bullied because of their sexual orientation. There is never a good reason to bully another person! My heart continues to go out to those lost souls who could not see a light at the end of the tunnel but only a freight train coming at them.

My heart is saddened because the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) hailed the video of the president's speech as an "historic" boost to the homosexualist campaign towards youth. "The President's empathy and concern, so clearly and directly expressed, is an historic contribution to the outpouring of support for LGBT youth we have seen over the past few weeks," stated the GLSEN blog. No wonder our young folks are so mixed up with all of the different signals they are getting bombarded with.

I continue to pray for the families that are left behind to deal with the end-results of suicide. I pray for the young folks out there who allow their sexual desires to overcome them to the point of sinning against our Almighty God. My prayer is that they will repent of their sins and come back to the Lord and allow Him to get them through these tough times in their lives. May our Lord have mercy on our souls.

This is My Prayer

For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Ephesians 3:14-21)

In the original text, Father and family are related words. All families of men and angels derive from God the Father, their Creator. The family of God includes all who have believed in Him -- in the past, all who believed in the present, and all who will believe in the future. We are all a family because we have the same Father. He is the source of all creation, the rightful owner of everything.

By John Jalsevac

October 12, 2010 ( – Yesterday the 40 Days for Life campaign announced a significant milestone for the burgeoning pro-life initiative – its 3,000th baby saved from abortion since the first 40 Days campaign in the fall of 2007.

“To God be the glory for reaching this major milestone!” wrote Shawn Carney of 40 Days in yesterday’s update. “That's a LOT of children and mothers spared from abortion. And that's a lot of GREAT stories.” Click here for the complete story.


After reading this story all I can say is "God bless those who stand on the front lines as Ambassadors of Christ."

Work Out Your Own Salvation

Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. (Philippians 2:12-13)

When studying this passage of scripture, it is important to remember that "Therefore" ties this verse to the previous section where Paul desires the Philippians to respond positively to his admonition to have the mind of Christ (Philippians 2: 5–8). The command is to the entire group since the word you is plural. The subject is their mutual, corporate salvation (Philippians 1:19, 28; Luke 22:24–30).

Between the Boy and the Bridge — A Haunting Question

I am haunted by the one question that seems so obvious and clear in the account of Tyler Clementi’s tragic death. In those days of crushing anguish, humiliation, and confusion, was there no one who could have stood between that boy and that bridge?

Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr.
Monday, October 4, 2010

By all accounts Tyler Clementi was an 18-year-old young man who was excited to be a freshman in college, gifted as a violinist, and looking forward to the future. All that changed last week when he walked out onto the massive George Washington Bridge that connects New York with New Jersey and jumped 200 feet to his death.

The last few days of Tyler Clementi’s life were a cauldron of confusions. Over the course of three days, he learned that his roommate at Rutgers University, also age 18, had surreptitiously turned a webcam toward his bed, filming him in a romantic encounter with another male student. The roommate employed social media to inform friends of the event, turning what Tyler Clementi assumed was a private moment into a devastating public disclosure. Click here to read full story.


After reading this story, I am also haunted by the same question that Dr. Mohler had.  In those days of crushing anguish, humiliation, and confusion, was there no one who could have stood between Tyler Clementi and that bridge?

I ask you the same question that Dr. Mohler posed too his readers. What if Tyler Clementi had been in your church? Would he have heard biblical truth presented in a context of humble truth-telling and gospel urgency, or would he have heard irresponsible slander, sarcastic jabs, and moralistic self-congratulation? What about Asher and Billy and Seth?

Suffering for Righteousness Sake

But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. “And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.” But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed. For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. (1 Peter 3:14-17)

Since not everything in the world functions as it should, even those who do God’s will may undergo suffering. When Peter said if we should suffer "for righteousness’ sake", he is saying that believers should make certain that when they suffer it is only because they have served God faithfully and not because they have done anything wrong (1 Peter 4:14, 15). Then Peter states, "you are blessed." indicating that God specially honors those who suffer for doing what is right (see Matt. 5:10–12).
