While everyone knows that abortions are never safe for unborn babies, we have been led to believe that legalization made abortions safer for the mothers.
That may not be true and here’s why.
Let’s define a “good” abortionist as one whose maternal patients never end up in the emergency room with complications and a “bad” abortionist as one whose maternal patients do often suffer complications requiring hospital care.
Before abortions were legal, a mother with a botched abortion who showed up in an emergency room triggered a criminal investigation that would often lead to that “bad” abortionist being prosecuted and put out of business. Only “good” abortionists stayed in business because they weren’t discovered because their patients didn’t end up in emergency rooms. Thus the whole business was self- regulating in that “bad” abortionists were weeded out, while “good” abortionists remained.
Today our government is covering up for “bad” abortionists who are allowed to stay in business even after they have butchered many mothers.
On March 8 the ABC News program 20/20 had a segment about the complications of abortion. The segment was inspired by the fact that “four patients have died in the last five years in abortion clinics operated by the same doctor.” How was that abortionist allowed to continue practicing after the first, second, and third maternal deaths?
An example from right here in Florida explains how it happens. A letter from a Senior Attorney at the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) that says “Perforation of the uterus is a known and common complication of an abortion” and that because the abortionist acted in a timely manner and sent her to the emergency room, there was no malpractice. This letter was the final resolution of a complaint filed by a mother who had her uterus perforated by an abortionist in Melbourne.
When abortion was illegal, that abortionist would have been in jail and not able to damage other mothers. Instead, now that abortionist is free to continue his butchery every week with a Senior Attorney at AHCA making excuses for him. In one recent 17 month period Christians For Life documented 5 mothers being taken directly to the emergency room from the local abortion clinic.
So much for “safe,” legal abortions.

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.

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy
Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.
Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.
Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.

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).
