Racism Must Die So That America Can Thrive.

Racism Must Die So That America Can Thrive.

Friends, there is a reason why I’m Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn here in the 21st Century. As we see from the most recent racially motivated massacre in Virginia, racism is still alive and raising hell. Think about it. Racism is sin. Hatred is sin. Yet for whatever reason, the pot of domestic terrorism continues to be stirred under the guise of promoting “racial supremacy.” The big lie is that we are separate races, when in fact the…

Are the Babies in the Empty Chair? An Open Letter to President Obama

Dear President Obama, my prayers are with you as I write this letter today, anticipating your State of the Union address. Sir, you recently tweeted: “If there’s even one thing we can do, if there’s just one life we can save—we’ve got an obligation to try.” Your appeal seemed to be directed at gun control. Yet, the one life chord is vibrating on a frequency that embraces not just victims of gun violence, but even reaching the innocent lives in…

Nobel Peace Then and Now…

Nobel Peace Then and Now…

May God bless the 2014 winners of the Nobel Peace Prize, Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi. Both are to be commended for their fearless fight for the rights of children.

In some cases, “the haves” guilty or not…

NO PEACE, NO JUSTICE

NO PEACE, NO JUSTICE

I had a call today from someone who had heard a major news network entertain a recommendation that the law enforcement officials should use water hoses to quell the unrest on the streets of Ferguson, MO. I pray that rather than to resort to more violence in the efforts to stop the violence, leaders and lay people alike will embrace the principles of love and nonviolence, using peace in the quest for justice. This goes far beyond what’s happening in…

Gun Control? Knife Control? Bomb Control? or Heart Control?

Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans? The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against his anointed one. But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them. (Psalms 2:1, 2, 4 NLT) Gun Control? Knife Control? Bomb Control? Now what? How about Heart Control? When news of the recent Boston Marathon hit pro-life leader Dr. Johnny Hunter soon notified…

Knife Control?

Knife Control?

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; – 2 Corinthians 10:4 On Tuesday a young college student in Texas went on a violent stabbing spree wounding 14 students at the CyFair campus of Lone Star College near Houston.
