I stood on the sidewalk at 1103 Lucerne Terrace praying against the opening of the first late term in central Florida in 1996. James Scott Pendergraft had informed the city that he wanted to perform abortions through all three trimesters. When the Lord allowed Orlando Women’s Center to open in 1996, I sensed that He wanted me to stay to reach out to the aborting moms, companions, clinic workers and yes, even the abortionists. I had already been ministering outside all of the other murder mills in Orlando for three years.
A few years later as a result of a frivolous lawsuit he filed against the city of Ocala, Pendergraft was found guilty of conspiracy to commit extortion, lying under oath and mail fraud and sent to a federal penitentiary. I wrote to ask the abortionist to allow me to visit him. I wanted to share the gospel with the man.
Here is what the serial baby-killer wrote in response to my letter to him:

God says to love thy neighbors as thyself and to love all people including your enemies. That in order to love people you must not have hatred. I go to sleep every night with love and peace in my heart. I hate no one. I look forward to getting out soon and continuing my mission of helping women in one of the most difficult times in their lives. No one will ever change that. I am more determined than ever to pursue my mission.
I see you more than enough when I pass you on the sidewalk of Orlando Women’s Center. If you would like to donate to my legal fees please talk with our security personnel. God bless you and take care.
Perhaps this will help people to understand why I abhor the wishy-washy Christendom which makes everyone, including abortionists and aborting and post-abortive women, feels as if God loves them just the way they are … unrepentant, with no fear of God in their eyes. This is the devil’s business.
Sin is a devil dressed as an angel. ~ RC Sproul
Let niceties and relativism and humanism be flung to the dogs. Let churchianity and comfort in sin be confessed and forsaken. Silence kills babies. Abortion is the devil’s business and the church is complicit by her silence and her tolerance. We should be ashamed and repent.
… as for murderers … their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. ~ Revelation 21:8

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.

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).
