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.

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.

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

Just what is Calvinism?

Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?

This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

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 Silent Scream (DVD) Eight Languages

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981

Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.

The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.

“… a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Languages: English, Spanish, French, South Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese

Running Time: 28 minutes

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!
