Drawing Lines on Islam

A logic puzzle:

What would you think if someone told you the following?

  1. I follow the Koran.
  2. The Koran tells me to lie, cheat, steal and kill in order to conquer you.
  3. I don’t want to do any of that.

What is the status of such a claim?

Refugees and Reporting

Like me, you’re probably wanting to know what’s happening with the Syrian refugees.

These are people. Families. If you’ve seen a picture of a three-year-old Syrian boy dead, you know that something absolutely must be done. We should be ashamed if our hearts were not big enough to help these human beings—these image-bearers of God Himself—in their time of distress.

So then, what are the facts? What’s the right thing to do? Is President Obama’s plan to admit 10,000 Syrian refugees moral?

Certainty, Judgment, and Planned Parenthood

Let the little children come to me,” said Jesus (Matthew 19:14). But see what happens to a nation when it ignores the heart of God.

Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,
And shed innocent blood,
Even the blood of their sons and of their daughters,
Whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan:
And the land was polluted with blood.
Thus were they defiled with their own works,
And went a whoring with their own inventions.
Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people,
Insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance (Psalm 106:37-40).

Righteous Judgment and Anger without Sin

At the release of the fourth video investigating Planned Parenthood’s selling of aborted babies, we see a continuing pattern: whenever Planned Parenthood denies a claim, more evidence comes forward, giving the lie to their press agents. For those working to protect the lives of unborn children, Planned Parenthood’s public relations nightmare is good news.

The Center for Medical Progress has bravely continued to release their videos, even in spite of a spurious restraining order imposed upon them by the Los Angeles Superior Court. Meanwhile, NPR and other “news” organizations pretend to cover the issue in an objective way while framing the issue in terms of “abortion rights” and “fetal tissue.”

What Can Anyone Do?

Looking at the moral state of our society, I groan: “What can anyone do?”

Like the kings in the days of Israel and Judah, we have more wicked rulers than good ones. Even our good rulers never manage to remove the “high places” of child sacrifice, because the hearts of the people are wicked.

Our country’s greatest wickedness is its treatment of unborn children.

In the past two weeks it has come to light that Planned Parenthood sells the parts of aborted babies for around $300 a piece. The third video came out July 28th, with more to follow, apparently at weekly intervals for the next two months.

I’ve followed this story and worked to make it known. I’ve called others to do the same.
