Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?
This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.
Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.
The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?
As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).
Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Chapter 3 – Abortion … The Devil’s Mousetrap
by Eric Holmberg and Jay Rogers
The great father of the early Church, Aurelius Augustine, famously called Jesus’ cross “the devil’s mousetrap” and that the bait which caught Satan was the death of the Lord.
“The Lord’s cross was the devil’s mousetrap: the bait which caught him was the death of the Lord.” (St. Augustine, Sermons, 261, trans. by Henry Bettenson, ed., The Later Christian Fathers: A Selection From the Writings of the Fathers from St. Cyril of Jerusalem to St. Leo the Great. Oxford, Oxford University Press, 1970, 1977. p. 222.)
Augustine understood well what Paul had written to the church at Corinth:
“None of the rulers of this age understood this, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory” (1 Corinthians 2:8).
By inspiring the Jews and Romans to crucify Jesus, Satan cut his own throat. The “law of unintended consequences” went nuclear.
Through the cross the once and for all sacrifice for sins was accomplished, setting God’s people free from the condemnation and ultimate power of sin and its wages, death.
As a perfect keeper of God’s law, Jesus didn’t deserve death and so was soon vindicated by the Holy Spirit by way of the resurrection. This brought Him forth as the first-born from the dead and enabled us to follow wreaking all manner of disastrous consequences on the kingdom of darkness.
It put Jesus as a glorified man on the throne of heaven and earth and granted us sanctuary access – again with all manner of awesome benefits in our battle against the world, the flesh and the devil.
We could go on and on …
But God’s plays fair; His blessings are always mirrored by corresponding curses. If the one who was a murderer from the beginning can, for example, get us to commit murder, then all Satan has to do is get out of the way and watch as God’s holiness – and corresponding wrath – begins to burn.
Make no mistake about it: the Lord’s anger burns against the hands that shed innocent blood.
“… the Lord hates … the hands that shed innocent blood” (Proverbs 6:16,17).
“When you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood” (Isaiah 1:15).
“And they have built the high places … to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire … Therefore … the dead bodies of this people will be food for the birds of the air and for the beasts of the earth” (Jeremiah 7:31-33).
Throughout the rest of his book, Jeremiah issues dreadful warnings about the judgments God was bringing against Israel for its sins – most notably the polluting of the land with innocent blood.
“… because they have filled this place with the blood of innocents” (Jeremiah 19:4; see also 7:6; 22:3,17; 26:15).
These judgments were fulfilled in 587 BC when the Babylonians sacked and destroyed Jerusalem, taking the wretched people who survived the holocaust into captivity.
On September 11th, 2001 AD, America froze in shock and disbelief as two planes took out the World Trade Center and 3000 people died. Cries of anger and vengeance arose that propelled America into wars that continue to this day.
Now, how do you think God feels when even more people die every day in America through abortion? And these deaths are not random acts of terror but are instead calmly sanctioned by our courts, protected by our laws and, for the most part, ignored by the church that God has commissioned to be salt and light.How much longer do you think before the devil’s mousetrap is fully sprung?

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.
