Planned Parenthood Abortion Corporation Kills 327,653 Babies In 2013 Report

In 2013, abortions made up 94% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services

The abortion giant Planned Parenthood has released its 2013 annual report and the new numbers indicate it did more abortions than the year before — killing 327,653 babies in abortions while taking in millions in taxpayer funds.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America has released its 2013-2014 Annual Report and Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League, broke down the numbers. The report indicates Planned Parenthood did 327,653 abortions in 2013, an increase over the 327,166 abortions it did in 2012.

While it remains America’s biggest abortion corporation, the “nonprofit” continued to make money — bringing in $305.4 million last year and $305.3 million this year. Planned Parenthood continued to receive over a half-billion dollars in taxpayer money, as it took in $540 million in 2012 and $528 million in 2013.

“Despite this lack of increase in its primary business, Planned Parenthood continued to receive over a half-billion dollars in taxpayer money,” Sedlak said. “It has such a tremendous publicity machine that it convinced corporate and private donors to increase donations by more than $75 million (from $315.4 million to $391.8 million).”

“The increased donations, plus an increase of $28 million in “other operating revenue” and the reduction in costs from closing clinics, led to a near-record $127.1 million in profits for the largest abortion chain in the nation. This was the second highest reported annual profit in Planned Parenthood’s history,” he explained to LifeNews. source

Some other takeaways from Planned Parenthood’s own figures:

  • In 2013, abortions made up 94% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services.
  • For every adoption referral, Planned Parenthood performed 174 abortions.
  • While abortions rose, Planned Parenthood adoption referrals dropped 14% in one year, and prenatal care services dropped 4%.
  • Planned Parenthood’s cancer prevention services are down 17% over one year, andcontraceptive services dropped by 4%.
  • During fiscal year 2013-2014, Planned Parenthood received more than $528 million in taxpayer funding, or more than $1.4 million per day, in the form of government grants, contracts, and Medicaid reimbursements.
  • Taxpayer funding accounts for 41% of Planned Parenthood’s overall revenue.
  • Planned Parenthood reported more than $127 million in excess revenue, and more than $1.4 billion in net assets.

New Study Finds GMO Soy Toxic to Kidneys, Liver and Reproduction

Posted: 02 Jan 2015 10:18 PM PST

soybeans1In North America, approximately 75 to 89% of the soy beans grown are genetically modified (GM). One may not realize it, but this is concerning news – especially because recent research found that GM soy is toxic to the kidneys, liver, and more. There isn’t just one smoking gun anymore pointing at GMO toxicology. There is now an entire arsenal of scientific research proving that genetically modified organisms adversely affect the body. In yet another new study conducted by Egyptian researchers, rats given GM soy were found to have deadly amounts of toxicity in their kidneys, liver, testes, sperm, blood and even DNA. Is there any question anymore about the true poisons that are biotech’s squalid wares? The histopathological assessments made by the researchers of the rat’s bodily tissues leave no room for mistakes or misjudgments. You can’t argue over the results as some GMO-supporters have tried to do with other studies (like Seralini’s). Seralini’s study is one of the most quoted papers on the Internet, yet Monsanto gave a lengthy refutation of its findings. More

WHO Investigating Reports That ISIS Fighters Have Been Infected With EbolaPosted: 02 Jan 2015 10:12 PM PST

WHO-investigating-reports-isis-ebola-iraq-syriaTHE WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION IS INVESTIGATING REPORTS THAT ISIS MILITANTS HAVE BEEN SHOWING UP AT AN IRAQI HOSPITAL WITH EBOLA. According to three media outlets an undisclosed number of ISIS militants displaying signs of the disease attended a hospital in the ISIS-held city of Mosul, 250 miles north of Baghdad. While the reports, from Kurdish and pro-Iraqi sources, remain unconfirmed, WHO spokesman Christy Feig said the group are trying to reach out to officials in ISIS-held areas to offer help. According to a report in Iraq’s pro-government newspaper, al Sabaah, the disease was brought to Mosul by ‘terrorists’ arriving ‘from several countries’ and Africa. The symptoms of Ebola, which include nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, bleeding and bruising, are similar to those of other diseases including malaria and yellow fever meaning it could easily have have been misdiagnosed.

The FCC says it will vote on net neutrality in FebruaryPosted: 02 Jan 2015 09:48 PM PST

Federal Communications Commission Proposes New Open Internet RulesFederal regulators looking to place restrictions on Internet providers will introduce and vote on new proposed net neutrality rules in February, Federal Communications Commission officials said Friday. President Obama’s top telecom regulator, Tom Wheeler, told fellow FCC commissioners before the Christmas holiday that he intends to circulate a draft proposal internally next month with an eye toward approving the measure weeks later, said one official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the agency’s deliberations are ongoing. The rules are meant to keep broadband providers such as Verizon and Comcast from speeding up or slowing down some Web sites compared to others. FCC spokeswoman Kim Hart declined to comment on Wheeler’s communications with his colleagues, but confirmed the February timetable, which ends weeks of speculation as to when the FCC would make its next move.

Lindsey Graham: Iran Nuclear Push Is ‘Biggest Threat to World’Posted: 02 Jan 2015 09:42 PM PST

19th International AIDS Conference Convenes In WashingtonOne of Congress’ most prominent foreign policy voices has expressed alarm that Iran is moving towards becoming a military nuclear power like its longtime ally North Korea. In an interview published Friday by the Israeli media outlet Israel Hayom, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said he does not object to Iran having a nuclear energy program, but is “very concerned” about Tehran’s uranium enrichment efforts becoming a path to atomic weapons capability. Fifteen nations with nuclear power programs do not enrich uranium, Graham said.  That’s why I want any deal to come before Congress for our vote and approval. I fear a North Korea outcome,” he added. The South Carolina Republican was referring to the last effort to regulate a rogue state’s nuclear ambitions – the case of the communist regime in North Korea. More

SMU seismologists to study ‘increasing frequency’ of earthquakes rattling IrvingPosted: 02 Jan 2015 09:39 PM PST

AX203_0875_9At this point they’re now just a thing we’ve come to expect every so often — ho hum, just another minor earthquake near or even on the old Texas Stadium site. Maybe you felt last night’s 2.4 or Tuesday’s 2.8. Maybe you didn’t. But don’t worry. There’s probably another on the way.  And that’s why Irving’s city manager, Chris Hillman, has decided to call in the experts. On Monday, researchers from SMU’s seismology program are heading to Irving to install additional seismographs to see if they can determine what’s responsible for the uptick in quakes along the Balcones Fault in Irving in recent months. And on January 15, SMU seismology professor Brian Stump — the area’s go-to man when it comes to question-mark-shaped quaking — will be among those experts briefing the Irving City Council on the shaking taking place near the Trinity East gas well site and the long-ago home of the Dallas Cowboys.

US Debt Soars By $100 Billion On Last Day Of 2014, Hits Record $18.14 TrillionPosted: 02 Jan 2015 09:31 PM PST

debt-usaIt seems like it was only yesterday when we reported that, in yet another slight of hand for the US Treasury and Social Security Administration, US debt rose by $32 billion on the last day of November sending total US debt above $18 trillion for the first time ever. As we further noted, it also meant “that total US debt has increased by 70% under Obama, from $10.625 trillion on January 21, 2009 to $18.005 trillion most recently.” Fast forward to today when we are happy to report that according to the US Treasury, America’s debt-funded spending spree, while supposedly slowing down if looking at the declining monthly budget deficit report, never actually has.

Saudi Arabia beheads over 80 people in 2014, highest level in five yearsPosted: 02 Jan 2015 09:25 PM PST

saudiSaudi Arabia beheaded more than 80 people, a toll that brings the number of publicly announced executions to its highest level in five years. The latest execution was a Pakistani man charged with drug smuggling. An AP tally says that all in all 83 people have been beheaded, while AFP puts the number even higher – at 87. On Wednesday Riyadh beheaded a Pakistani national for heroin smuggling. He became the 13th prisoner from Pakistan to be executed by Saudi authorities for drug-related crimes since mid-October. Drug smuggling convicts make up most beheading cases. According to the country’s Interior Ministry, the Pakistani citizen Sadruddin Saeedullah Khan was caught smuggling “a large amount of heroin.” During the Islamic calendar year which ended in October, police seized almost 18 kilograms of raw heroin, the ministry added. Rape, murder, armed robbery, drug trafficking, sodomy, practicing witchcraft and renunciation of one’s faith are all capital offenses in the ultra-conservative absolute monarchy, which has a legal system based on Islamic or Sharia law rather than legal codes and precedents. According to Amnesty International data, Riyadh has one of the highest execution rates in the world: 79 executions in Saudi Arabia in 2013 and 2012, and 82 in 2011 and 2010. More

71% of Americans Are ‘Dissatisfied’ With Direction of the Country; Less Than Half Think 2015 Will Be a Better YearPosted: 02 Jan 2015 02:36 PM PST

obama-obamacareA whopping 71 percent of Americans are dissatisfied with the direction the country is going in, and less than half of those polled, 49 percent, believe this year will be better than last, while 42 percent actually believe it will be worse. “The public remains deeply dissatisfied with the way things are going in the country. Just 26 percent are satisfied with national conditions, while 71 percent are dissatisfied,” according to a poll released by the Pew Research Center this week. “The current ratings are more pessimistic than in recent years, as the public generally takes an optimistic view of the year to come.”  News isn’t any better for both political parties, as Pew found that the percentage of Democrats who believe the new year will be better than the year before has taken a nose dive. Democrat respondents who believe the new year will be better than the year before was at 60 percent, a 21 point decline from last year when the poll was taken. More

International Olympic Committee perspective: LGBT ‘rights’ trump Christian persecution

According to One News Now:

In recently passing a non-discrimination policy for LGBT athletes, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) continued its years-long campaign to ensure that homosexuals and transgendered individuals are accommodated as much as possible through its policies. But when it comes to the persecution of Christians, the IOC is silent and apathetic, agreeing to hold events in nations with histories of grossly oppressing and even executing Christians.

Feel-Good Preacher Joel Osteen May Have Violated Lakewood Church Non-Profit Status

Top televangelist Joel Osteen is caught up in a potential financial scandal that could destroy his $50 million empire

New York attorney Richard Garbarini claimed he’s blowing the whistle on the 51-year-old nicknamed “The Smiling Preacher.” Garbarini – who previously helped a band win a judgment from Osteen and his Lakewood Church for stealing their music – is calling for an investigation, charging that Osteen uses his charity to promote his for-profit books.

joel-osteen-lakewood-church-not-for-profit-violation-scandal-feel-good-prosperity-preacher

While the Houston-based ministry is listed as a non-profit, Garbarini said: “He’s leveraging the church as a money-making vehicle! The church pays to air his sermons, which are just de facto infomercials to promote his books.The Lakewood Church is a shell to funnel people to his website so he can sell his books.” Osteen’s latest title, “You Can, You Will,” was a hot holiday seller, and the Lakewood Church website prominently sells it along with Osteen’s past books, including five best sellers.

Daniel Borochoff, head of Charity Watch, a non-profit watchdog, said Garbarini is right to red-flag Osteen’s activities, if true. “A non-profit needs to be acting in the public interest and not in the private personal business interests of Joel Osteen,” he explained. “The church should benefit from the royalties of these books when they are shouldering at least some of the cost of promoting them. If it isn’t getting something back, it oughta be. It’s too much a promotional vehicle for him.”

Osteen’s rep called Garbarini’s allegations “false and baseless,” adding: “For more than 50 years Lakewood Church has adhered to the highest standards of honesty and integrity.”

One set of passages often appealed to by those pushing the prosperity gospel are the Old Testament texts which speak of the promises of material blessing in such places as Lev. 26 and Deut. 28-29. It is said that these passages are for believers today, and need to be appropriated. This is a common theme of the prosperity teachers.

WHO Investigating Reports That ISIS Fighters Have Been Infected With Ebola

The World Health Organisation is investigating reports that ISIS militants have been showing up at an Iraqi hospital with Ebola

According to three media outlets an undisclosed number of ISIS militants displaying signs of the disease attended a hospital in the ISIS-held city of Mosul,  250 miles north of Baghdad.

While the reports, from Kurdish and pro-Iraqi sources, remain unconfirmed, WHO spokesman Christy Feig said the group are trying to reach out to officials in ISIS-held areas to offer help.

The symptoms of Ebola, which include nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, bleeding and bruising, are similar to those of other diseases including malaria and yellow fever meaning it could easily have have been misdiagnosed.

In addition, very few ISIS fighters are believed to have travelled up from West Africa where the Ebola outbreak originated with most coming from areas where there have been no reports of the disease.

The reports have appeared in pro-government and Kurdish media but if true it could have catastrophic implications for people in ISIS-held areas as the group is against western science and medicine.

It is not known if any of the surviving doctors in Mosul are equipped to test for Ebola or trained to treat patients and prevent the spread of the disease.

John Calvin on ‘Theological Trespassing’

Let us, however, at the very least acknowledge the point that Deut. 29:29 does place upon us a moral obligation to restrain ourselves from some lines of reasoning/inquiry into matters related to our Triune God and His works of creation and providence. God has, in fact, posted a “no trespassing” sign at certain points where our minds are (sinfully) prone to tread. The existence of that sign as such, wherever exactly it stands, should prompt considerable humility and trepidation on our part as we seek to faithfully understand and know our holy God and His ways.

Strong Delusion: The Lucis Trust and the U.N.

When most people think of the United Nations, they think of an organization which is called upon to mediate, when countries are at odds with one another. People also believe that the U.N. intervenes in that which is considered inhumane treatment of the masses by governing authorities.

But the reality is that this organization has its roots and foundation in Occultism. The intent of this article is to educate those who love the Lord Jesus Christ, and want to understand the Strong Delusion, which is coming. The U.N. will be the main vehicle by which deception and delusion comes to the earth.

India’s Government Forcing Millions to Choose Between Christianity and Government Benefits

ICC Note:

As Christian persecution continues to increase in India, millions of Christians coming from India’s lowest caste already face discrimination and persecution at the hands of the Indian government. As a initiative to help people coming from the lower castes, India’s government has extended benefits to these people in the areas of employment, education and government. However, these benefits are not extended to low caste people who call themselves Christians because the government only gives these benefits to Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs. This choice India’s government is forcing millions to make is a denial of religious freedom and should be considered persecution.

Strong Delusion: The Lucis Trust And The United Nations Pt. II (VIDEO)

by NTEB Feature Story Contributor Geri Ungurean

Is it possible that the U.N. will be one of the instruments used by Satan to bring about the Strong Delusion, which we are told in the Word of God will take place upon the earth?

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20

The Theosophical society’s mission is divulged in this statement:

To oppose every form of dogmatic theology, especially the Christian, which the Chiefs of the Society regard as particularly pernicious … to counteract, as far as possible, the effects of missionaries to delude the so-called “Heathen” and “Pagans” as to the real origin and dogmas of Christianity and the practical effects of the latter upon public and private character in so-called Christian countries.” [3]

united-nations-un-lucis-trust-satanism-in-america-lord-maitreya-antichrist

Satan has used God’s Word, but has twisted it and placed it upside down. Good is evil, evil good, just as the Prophet Isaiah said would happen. The Age of Enlightenment is seen by the elite as higher – loftier — more appropriate for a group of representatives from all over the globe.

They look to their Ascended Masters for Enlightenment, not realizing that they are being played by their precious Lucifer. He is sending his minions of fallen angels (demons) to communicate with the leaders of mediation and psychic readings groups. Most people would be shocked to know that the U.N. is the largest gathering of Occult and New Age followers on the planet.

Various quotes by Alice Ann Bailey on NWO:

“The new world order must meet the immediate need and not be an attempt to satisfy some distant, idealistic vision. The new world order must be appropriate to a world which has passed through a destructive crisis and to a humanity which is badly shattered by the experience. The new world order must lay the foundation for a future world order which will be possible only after a time of recovery, of reconstruction, and of rebuilding.”

“In the preparatory period for the new world order there will be a steady and regulated disarmament. It will not be optional. No nation will be permitted to produce and organize any equipment for destructive purposes or to infringe the security of any other nation. The new world order must be appropriate to a world which has passed through a destructive crisis.” (emphasis mine)

We are concerned with only one subject, the ushering in of the new world order….the present world order (which is today largely disorder) can be so modified and changed that a new world and a new race of men can gradually come into being. Renunciation and the use of the sacrificial will should be the keynote for the interim period after the war (WWII), prior to the inauguration of the New Age.” – Alice Bailey: Quotes From Various Works

As you can see, clearly the goal of the United Nations is the establishment of the New World Order. This NWO sets the global stage for the coming of someone. We will see who this long awaited person will be.

For whom are they waiting?

Knowing that the Lucis Trust was built upon a Satanic foundation, it is not difficult to surmise their ultimate goal. They are waiting for the “Lord Maitreya”, or as they call him “The Christ.” But don’t be fooled. This is beyond a shadow of a doubt not our Messiah, Jesus Christ.

They await the arrival of ANTICHRIST AKA – Lord Maitreya.

Maitreya’s Deceptive Predictions: A period of violence and destruction for the earth.

“This ‘end of an age’ inevitably produces a certain number of natural disasters such as floods and earthquakes, and we are seeing a dramatic climax in the number of disasters taking place around the world… Maitreya says: ‘The last time I came, as Jesus, it was written in the Bible that when I appeared again the very elements of nature would be disturbed.’ ” “…After the disasters have peaked there will come a period of calm -the violence and destruction will come to an end. As people gain awareness, their guilt will recede…”

Maitreya’s Mission, Volume Two, Benjamin Creme, Share International Foundation, 1993, pp186-187

When I read “their guilt will recede” I thought about the guilt of sin, and repentance. However, occultists do not speak of the need to repent of sin. They only speak of enlightenment.

“The bible predicts many catastrophes in the book of Revelation, beginning with the polar shift of the sixth seal (http://www.redmoonrising.com/list.htm, Section II), and including a meteor impact into the ocean (8:8), major famines and plagues (6:8), intense heat from the sun (16:8), and many others.”

These Occultists use the Word of God when it is convenient, but invariably change and corrupt it for their purposes. There are millions of people involved in New Age practices, worldwide. Kabbalah, practiced in Israel, and all over the world, is New Age. There are even well respected Rabbis in Israel who are known as “Kabbalist Rabbis.” Undoubtably, the Antichrist will be New Age. It is not surprising that Israel will be deceived by this man of perdition during the first 3 /12 years of the tribulation. source – Lord Maitreya’s predictions 

Maitreya predicts the collapse of the current financial system.

“When the US’s “oasis of prosperity” begins to dry up, as it must in the current global financial crisis, stock markets in the West will plunge. This collapse will provide an opportunity for governments to re-evaluate their economic priorities, says futurist Benjamin Creme. The nations of the world will meet together to discuss how to cope with the future in an orderly fashion.” – from the Share International website  [2]

This is absolutely counterfeit and demonic. All we need to know is found in the Word of God. Satan is desperate to deceive as many people as he can. He knows what our Word says about the End Times, but he also knows that there are more people who do not believe God’s Word than do believe it. He wants to keep it that way.

Brethren, there is so much more to write, but this article would be immense. I encourage you to go to the sources referenced in this piece. There you will find names of individuals and corporations who take part in the Lucis Trust, and many of the names will shock you.

I felt an urgency to write about these things. We who love the Lord Jesus Christ, need to know how the Strong Delusion will come upon the peoples of the earth.

We are blessed who know THE TRUTH. JESUS is TRUTH.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)

DO NOT BE DECEIVED!

Maranatha!

Do Not Be Surprised… This ‘n’ That

 

  • This made me really sad.
  • In case you actually care what were the top 20 Christianity Today posts in 2014.
  • Newsweek published this, which was a disaster. Dr. James White responded here and here. Dr. Michael Kruger responded here and here and Pastor Tom Chantry had a clever proposal. Of course, are we really surprised that the world is acting like the world, and is therefore being hostile to Christianity?
  • This ‘pastor‘ was never a Christian. And he is wrong. Grossly wrong.
  • Um, hasn’t this been done? More than once? Like, way too many times?
  • I used to want to be an archaeologist, so even though there seems to be a bit of speculation in this report, the archaeological find is fascinating.
  • Here’s your weekly dose of adorable.
  • I have no idea what it means that 2015 is the ‘year of the sunflower‘ or who made that decision, but sunflowers are tied with gerber daisies for my favorite flower, so I’m okay with it.
  • Hey, looking for a new movie to watch on movie night? How about ‘Meet the Mormons‘?
  • It’s that time of year again—time to choose your Bible reading plan for 2015. Tim Challies shares some recommendations. I plan to use one that was shared at GraceLife Pulpit several years ago.
  • Elizabeth Prata has written a series of articles about the website She Reads Truth and the If: Gathering. I think you should check it out and consider what she has to say.

Some Here, Some There — January 2, 2015

by Dan PhillipsHope you had a safe and sane New Year’s Eve. In Texas, it’s always very explosive — literally!Our church had a good time of fellowship and worship, with a word from Scripture on how to put into effects the changes which the Holy Spirit may have brought to our minds from our New Year’s consideration of the Word.

So now, for the seven of you who are online today, this brief care package:

  • Through the one-way mirror, as a service to help you in an area I deeply believe in: Justin Taylor links to material to help you read through the Bible in 2015Challies also links to a number of Bible reading plans.
  • The best one for you? The one you pick and stick with.
  • Me? I’ve done a number; I’ve done M’Cheyne several years, and it’s pretty rigorous. Having read through the Bible quite a few times, what I’ve done for the past couple of years at least is to read portions of the Hebrew OT in its canonical order (Genesis-2 Chronicles), the NT in Greek, and the Bible in English.
  • Well, you asked. Or read, anyway.
  • Pat Robertson isn’t the only one with predictions:
  • For instance, a man respected by many cool kidz, Anthony Bradley, writes a whole column ostensibly explaining why the living contents of one particular skincolor package “matter.” Because: centuries ago. Because: decades ago. Because: this and that. Not-because: the Gospel, the Bible. I expect this year will feature a lot more of this, with many cool kidz outdoing each other to get on that particular wagon.
  • Meanwhile there will be a few stubborn hardheads who will insist that racism is never the answer to racism, the Gospel is; and that stoking fires of resentment, bitterness, self-pity, and career-victim-status, coupled with calls for endless increments of statist “solutions,” are the way forward for nobody.
  • The former will do their best to shame, ignore and/or marginalize the latter, and…fun times for all. When the smoke clears, the Gospel will still have been both the issue and the only real solution. The only question is how many deaths and broken friendships will precede that admission.
  • Pastor/professor Ryan M. McGraw offers a fine, detailed, spunky review of John Frame’s massive new systematic theology, which I’m reading. Turns out that one of the very things McGraw doesn’t like about it is the very thing I do like about Frame. That said, I’d say all his points of criticism are well-taken, from what I’ve read so far. Still I’m finding it a stimulating and profitable read.
Farewell for now, and… stay ever vigilant.

The People of The Branch?

Q&A-chalkboard

Q. Someone recently mentioned the Netzari, and I had never heard of them.  I went to their website and they say that they alone are the Holy Remnant.   They say Faith is the action of fulfilling Torah, by opening our hearts to the Word of YHWH and doing His Commandments, we turn from the lower nature of man and become a Kedoshim (Holy People).  Faith is believing that Jesus came and died for our sins is it not?  Is this Holy Remnant only the ones who fulfill the entire Torah?  Will we, if we love Yeshua with all our heart be desiring to fulfill (obey) the entire Law?

Why Does Satan Continue To Persecute The Jews?

Q&A-chalkboard

Q.  I have a question re:Hosea 5:15.  I’ve wondered why Satan continued to persecute the Jews after the cross.  Before that I could see his efforts at Jewish destruction as an attempt to corrupt or break the bloodline required for Jesus’ lineage.  But after that, why continue pursuing the elimination of Jews?

The Rapture And The Tribulation

Q&A-chalkboard

Q. Thank you very much for your site, I’ve learned a lot and my day is not complete when I miss reading it.  My question is, as I heard and read that the last 7 years are called the tribulation, do we begin to count 7 years just after the rapture or is there any time interval before beginning to count the 7 years?

Our Religion: Occupied with Knowing God

The Reformed Reader

Product Details In one section of his three-volume work on Reformed theology (under ecclesiology), Francis Turretin explained what the Reformation was all about.  One question the Reformers faced was this: what is this that you are teaching?  Another question was this: what do you believe?  Turretin explains the basic truths the Reformers taught – truths they derived from Scripture alone.  Here is a summary of his words:

“Our religion is that which is wholly occupied with knowing the one and triune God, the Creator, preserver and Redeemer, and rightly worshiping him according to his command.  It gives the entire glory of our salvation to God alone and writes against man alone the true cause of his sin and destruction.”

“It is our religion which recognizes no other rule of faith and practice besides the sacred Scriptures; no other Mediator and head of the church than Christ; no other propitiatory sacrifice than his…

With government subsidies, Planned Parenthood did 327,653 abortions in 2013

WINTERY KNIGHT

This is from Life News.

Excerpt:

The abortion giant Planned Parenthood has released its 2013 annual report and the new numbers indicate it did more abortions than the year before — killing 327,653 babies in abortions while taking in millions in taxpayer funds.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America has released its 2013-2014 Annual Report and Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League, broke down the numbers.The report indicates Planned Parenthood did 327,653 abortions in 2013, an increase over the 327,166 abortions it did in 2012.

While it remains America’s biggest abortion corporation, the “nonprofit” continued to make money — bringing in $305.4 million last year and $305.3 million this year. Planned Parenthood continued to receive over a half-billion dollars in taxpayer money, as it took in $540 million in 2012 and $528 million in 2013.

“Despite this lack of increase in its primary business, Planned Parenthood continued to receive over…

Has Joel Osteen gotten better at talking about Jesus? A new survey of @JoelOsteen and his Newsletter.

Polemics Report

6 months ago I wrote a post titled Joel Osteen Likes God…He just doesn’t like Jesus [A Twitter Survey of @JoelOsteen] It was a post critical of a particular idiosyncrasy that I discovered about Joel, namely his propensity to talk about God a lot, but essentially never, ever, ever mention Jesus. At the time I wrote this:

The gospel of Joel Osteen, the “good news” that he brings is that “God loves you and wants to save you from  life of mediocrity and small dreams. Therefore, if you believe in God and be obedient to him, God will give you a plan for your life that includes big dreams,  self esteem, favor, health and wealth, influence, a better job, a positive self image and a fulfilled life free of negativity”. That’s it. That’s what it’s all about. That is the sum of just about every book, every sermon, every media appearance, and…

How is God glorified in us?

Possessing the Treasure

by Mike Ratliff

3 Then Moses said to Aaron, “It is what the Lord spoke, saying, ‘By those who come near Me I will be treated as holy, And before all the people I will be honored. ’” So Aaron, therefore, kept silent. (Leviticus 10:3 NASB)

God is far more serious about His glory than anyone else. Does it feel wrong to you that our God demands that we be humble before Him while also demanding that His creation exist solely to glorify Him? (Isaiah 43:7; Colossians 1:10; 2 Timothy 2:4; John 8:29; Romans 8:8; 1 Thessalonians 2:12; 1 Thessalonians 4:1; Ephesians 4:1; 2 Corinthians 5:9) If that concept rankles within your soul then it is imperative for you do some self-examination. Don’t feel too bad about that because all of us who are in Christ are in the process of becoming conformed unto the image of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:29-30…
