Like many Americans I’ve been frustrated by the attitudes and actions of my fellow citizens since Donald Trump was elected and took office. But yet my somberness is not the same as the political angst being flooded throughout the media waves and coffee houses across the land. My frustration has to do with the body of Christ. (more…)
How should we look at this major hot topic in our world today? Do we really understand what women go through who are faced with unplanned pregnancies? What exactly is the science on the issue? We’ve heard the hype on both ends of the debate but what are the actual facts? What can we do to help? Join us this evening as Robert Tippet and I talk with our special guests Brittney McLeod and Emily Franks. These two women have worked with ladies of crisis pregnancy situations and are well versed on the subjects and how we can shine the love of Christ into the real issues. Brittney works with Care Net Pregnancy Center of Northwest Houston and Emily works on weekly basis with ladies through The Source For Women. Join us tonight at 8p central as we dive into the Discussion. You can send in questions early here on the blog or our SND FB page and as always send in questions through our Google + page while the discussion is live. We’ll also take live questions here and Face Book as well.
Sometimes I just get tired. If anything, the word journey better describes the walk with Christ more than a happy walk in the park. It gets hard at times. It gets fatiguing at times. A marathon, or maybe a triathlon, is more descriptive of what authentic Christianity is like, rather than a Caribbean cruise. Yes, I get tired sometimes. It is tiring to continue to pray for years and not see the results my heart longs for. It is just downright oppressive at times trying to calmly and lovingly speak toward Biblical righteousness in a culture that wholly embraces abortion, homosexual lifestyles, and philosophical relativity. It gets disheartening to see more and more people who wear the name of Christ in Western Europe and America drop Biblical morality like a bad losing streak in favor of liberal cultural and political correctness.

On the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, I’m wondering where Norma McCorvey is today. Who is Norma McCorvey? Well I’m glad you asked. Norma is the woman who took the legal pseudonym of Jane Roe in the landmark case which made abortion legal for any reason in the United States back in 1973. I wonder where Norma is and what she is doing today because she is not the same woman that she was then. In fact, Norma holds a very different position today. In 1995 the world changed for Norma when some simple Christ followers and a leader from Operation Rescue did something radical; they loved her. It took some time, but eventually Norma fell under the weight of God’s love and surrendered her life to Christ and now experiences freedom and purpose. While I don’t know exactly where Norma is today, I know what her agenda is. Norma is given to spreading the truth about what a choice for abortion really means and the healing that can be found in Christ. Check out the quick clip on Norma’s story below and then a few ways that we can expand the love of Christ in relation to this modern abortion challenge. How will you bring “life” and love into your world today on this issue? (more…)
