A few months ago I was watching the movie Amazing Grace about the life of William Wilberforce, and suddenly, faith burst into my heart that public opinion could indeed be changed! We have faithfully run a Bound4LIFE chapter in Orlando for the last three years, but I have to admit, although I have given much of my time to this issue, I never had faith that things could actually change until one night when God broke into my own heart.
I believe the Lord has released a strategy for the nation that, at first glance, looks like a step backwards. For the nation to shift, the regions must press forward. A few months ago, I began studying the early history of America and the Continental Congress, a time in our history when the convention of delegates truly spoke on behalf of their region. The future of what would become the nation was at stake. Today, we find ourselves in this same place yet again. The future of America is at stake, literally. The regions must raise their voices. The regions must press forward. The regions must stand for life.
As we pray for our national government to uphold life, we have a responsibility in our own region to be a witness. After all, abortions are not happening in the Supreme Court building, they happen in our neighborhoods! The church is required to be the conscience of America. Let’s start in our own backyards.
This is a call to action! On May 1, thousands will gather in silent prayer from 10 am-12 pm, covering every abortion center in Florida. We will lay aside our denominational differences and preferences to be the demonstration of justice for those who have no voice. We will come as a silent force with one message: LIFE.
If not now, when?
If not you, who?
To find a place where you can take a stand, we have a growing list of abortion centers on our website: www.Stand4LIFE.info.
A few weeks ago, we believed the number of abortion clinics was 63 in Florida. We are now discovering the number is closer to 90. Miami, a largely Hispanic city, is being targeted in a profound way by abortion. We have to stand with her in this fight for life.
On April 24, the Saturday before Stand4LIFE, thousands will gather from all over Florida at the University of Central Florida (UCF) Field to pray for our state. It’s time for Florida to come together and contend for our own region. We will lift our voice as one man and cry out to God. And He will hear from heaven and heal our land.
Please pray for Florida over the next weeks. Consider joining us for the prayer gathering on April 24, and standing on May 1 in your own region. There is something awesome about knowing we are all standing together, sending up an S.O.S. God, save our souls!

“These videos helped change my mind from pro-choice to pro-life. Your videos are what did it for me. I will be walking in next year’s March For Life in San Francisco.” — A. Jackson, California
“I was going to have an abortion until I saw your video. Praise Jesus!”

“Give me liberty or give me death!”
Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.
The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification
In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.
By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

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.

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.
