Cameron Supports 20 Week Abortions

Cameron the Tory Leader has voiced his support to the reduction of the current 24 week threshold for abortions. I remember hearing a story about of a group of U.S.A pastors speer heading the same who prayed and fasted for weeks imploring the Lord to stand with thier desire to see the time limit lowered. The Bill failed. The Pastor saddened by God's lack of support saught the Lord for an answer. He received one. "Murder is Murder." Therefore all are best intentions are fruitless if they do not line up with God's word.

Follower of Jesus?

"And he said to them, Follow me , and I will make you fishers of men" Matthew 4:18.
Ask most Christians if they would consider themselves to be followers of Jesus and they would answer yes. However if you asked them if they were activaly seeking out the lost they would probally answer no. Interestingly studies show only 2% of Christians regulary share their faith. Here lies the dilemma. A sign of a true follower of Jesus was their passion and dedication in the work of fishing for men.
If you have no burden for the lost or any real concern for thier eternal welfare can you truly say you are following Jesus?

Defiled Earth

News continues to filter out concerning the state of our planet. Many are genuinley concerned and fear for the future. In a survey amongst primary school children it was one of the top three concerns they had. Isaiah the prophet wrote "The earth mourns and fades away, the worlds languishes and fades away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof..." (Isaiah 24:4-5). The Bible is clear when the people become defiled so does the earth. However God knows the beginning from the end and has put a plan in place. "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth...Behold I make alll things new" (Revelation 21 1-5). God is in control. For me a Christian, a very reassuring thought. Sadly many children are not taught to trust The Lord God Allmighty and are living in fear, what a tragedy.

Unbelieving Believers!

There would seem to be a new class of Christian. Unbelieving Believers! They annoumce faith in Jesus and then dilly daddle on key doctrinal issues. Someone aptly said "They speak out of both sides of the mouth." It so hard to get a difinitive answer out of anyone these days for fear of offending someone. As Christians we are called to defend Biblical truth in a world that isn't interested in what God has to say. Jesus said let your 'yes' mean 'yes' and your 'no' mean 'no.' Excellent advice!
