Should murder be criminalized?

The greatest failure among the American pro-life movement is the squeamish attitude toward criminalizing abortion. When so-called “pro-life” Christians call for a restriction on some abortions, what they are really saying is that they want the federal government to regulate child killing much in the way that the FDA regulates the selling of meat and vegetables. There would be no penalties beyond the loss of a license and a stiff fine perhaps.

Nicaragua, a country that was recently communist, has passed into law a six-year prison term for performing illegal abortions with stiffer sentences of up to 30 years for women who had abortions and for those who aided them. The Christians in Nicaragua understand that murdering one’s own child is a far more unnatural crime than killing for money. President-elect and former communist president Daniel Ortega, who once favored abortion rights, changed his stance and supported the law after strongly embracing Roman Catholicism and winning over voters in a country with a conservative religious tradition. Nicaragua is about 85 percent Catholic, with many of the remainder belonging to conservative evangelical churches.

Your comments are welcome!

I give joyous thanks to the Lord for manifesting His love in President Ortega of Nicaragua. Perhaps this can be the first of many countries in the new millennium in which the systematic slaughter of innocent children for immoral, even cannibalistic, purposes, is finally deemed to be outrageous by all right-thinking Christians, in the face of murderous opposition from the communist and atheistic left, and even those self-professed so-called Christians who obfuscate their devilry with a plea to "tolerance" and "women's rights", as if the nature of God's order of the masculine and the feminine can be so conveniently subverted.

We Christians know full well that murder is murder, and that murder of the innocent, unthinking foetus is the most heinous of all crimes. My own country (London in England, Britain, the so-called United Kingdom) is rife with death clinics which celebrate the giving of fertilised embryos - INNOCENT CHILDREN - to their infernal machines of murderous destruction. It is commonplace - and I genuinely weep as I type this statement - for children as young as ten years old to be provided with an "abortion" - or "genocide", as we can more accurately term it - without so much as notification to the girl's parents!

It is an evil, Satanic threat which stalks the length and breadth of our God-gifted world. We must all fight this menace at every turn, and praise the name of Jesus that He has, in His infinite benevolence, bestowed upon the President of Nicaragua the strength to oppose this so-called "women's rights". Mr Ortega is truly a humbling example to us all, and I hope to some day prove as worthy.

What a lot of people don't realize is that abortion on demand has made its presence felt through the "health and life of the mother" exception clause. The "health of the mother" is a supposed "right to privacy" issue "between a woman and her doctor." The "right" to abortion then becomes extended for light reasons such as mental and emotional duress, and so on.

The Nicaraguan law won't deny a woman emergency medical treatment in a life threatening situation, such as an ectopic (or tubal) pregnancy or another situation where it is impossible to operate to save the life of both the baby and the mother. The law is written in this way because in most Latin American countries abortion is illegal, but the exceptions are extended in such a way as to make abortion on demand prevalent. In other words, many abortions occur because the doctor decides that these child-murders are legal even though by law they are not.

We cannot stop people from murdering each other in every instance and God does not hold the society responsible for murder as long as it is criminalized and the courts prosecute as many cases as they can show evidence.

But if we legalize abortion, God then holds the society as a whole -- including every individual who does nothing to reverse this horrific policy -- guilty of murder.

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

The Beast of Revelation IdentifiedThe Beast of Revelation: Identified (DVD)

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?

Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!

Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.

Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

The Four Keys to the Millennium (Book)

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.
