New poll finds “dramatic shift” on abortion attitudes — Christian Research Network

“This has been a measure that has been so stable over time. To see that kind of change was surprising. And the increased discussion [of late-term abortion] in the public forum in the past month appears to have made the biggest difference in how people identify on the issue.”

(Alayna Treene – Axios)  The recent debate over “late-term abortion,” fueled by state measures in New York and Virginia that loosened, or sought to loosen, abortion restrictions toward the end of a woman’s pregnancy, has caused “a dramatic shift” in public attitudes towards abortion policy, according to Barbara Carvalho who directed a new Marist poll, commissioned by the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic organization.

By the numbers: The poll found Americans are now as likely to identify as pro-life (47%) as they are pro-choice (47%). Last month, a similar Marist survey found that Americans were more likely to identify as pro-choice than pro-life 55% to 38%, a 17-point gap.

  • The survey also found that 80% of Americans support abortion being limited to the first three months of pregnancy, an increase of 5 percentage points since last month’s Marist poll.

Between the lines: Marist has been polling Americans’ attitudes on abortion for over a decade, and Carvalho told Axios this is the first time since 2009 that as many or more Americans have identified as pro-life as have identified as pro-choice.  View article →

Radical Socialist Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Tells People They Shouldn’t Reproduce Due to Climate Change (VIDEO) — The Gateway Pundit

We are literally going to die unless the Green New Deal is passed, according to AOC.

Communist Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) not only wants to control how many hamburgers Americans eat, she’s now lecturing young people to reconsider having children because of climate change (hoax).

Ocasio-Cortez posted a kitchen hangout to her Instagram account Sunday night where she actually questioned if it is “moral” to have children.

Leftists are eugenicists and they don’t even hide it anymore.

“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said while chopping food. “And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, ‘Is it okay to still have children?’”

“The lack of urgency is going to kill us,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.

VIDEO:

Ocasio-Cortez has been on a major ego trip since the unveiling of her radical Green New Deal.

The 29-year-old lawmaker popped off at the New York Hall of Science on Friday while speaking on a ‘Girls Who Code’ panel.’

AOC clapped back at her Green New Deal critics, “I’m like you try! You do it! Cuz you’re not!” AOC said pointing her finger.

“So until you do it, I’M THE BOSS! How about that?” AOC yelled.

How long until Ocasio-Cortez rolls out a ‘one-child policy’ reminiscent to what China had for 30 years?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Hints That People Will Need To Be Prevented Through Forced Sterilization From Having Kids In Order To ‘Stop Climate Change’ From Spreading — Now The End Begins

Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested on Sunday night that people should consider not having children due to climate change because there is a “scientific consensus” that life will be hard for kids. We call that Eugenics.

Before you go and accuse me of writing a ‘sensationalistic headline’ please hear me out, because what I am telling you is very true. Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, as silly sounding and ignorant she may be, has made it to the ‘big show’ of American politics, and she has very powerful backing behind her. So when she says that having children should be stopped because it will ‘worsen climate change’, she is preaching the Liberal gospel of Eugenics. Famous eugenicists include concentration camp founder Adolf Hitler, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates, and of course, George Soros.

“That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.” Ecclesiastes 3:15 (KJV)

The hoax of man-made climate change is the drug of choice for the New World Order folks who are Hell-bent on a global takeover. They will use it to force any and every type of oppressive and repressive laws that the unsaved human mind can conceive. No one paid any attention when Adolf Hitler published ‘Mein Kampf‘ in 1925, but you better pay really close attention when AOC starts spouting off on stopping couples from having babies.

Why do you think the New World Order picked such a silly, ignorant woman like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for anyway? They picked her because they know you won’t take her seriously, and that’s exactly how they will use her to push these laws through. People laughed at Adolf Hitler in 1933, as the tiny little man with the silly moustache. But by 1939, they were cowering in fear as the Nazis crushed everything in their path. Consider this as sufficient warning the next time AOC opens her mouth and says something stupid.

Ocasio-Cortez: People Maybe Shouldn’t Reproduce Due To Climate Change

FROM THE DAILY WIRE: “Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said while chopping up food in her kitchen during an Instagram live video. “And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, ‘Is it okay to still have children?’”

Ocasio-Cortez then took a shot at Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) over an incident that happened in Feinstein’s office on Friday when a far-left fringe group tried to pressure Feinstein into supporting the Green New Deal.

Eugenics in America took a dark turn in the early 20th century, led by California. From 1909 to 1979, around 20,000 sterilizations occurred in California state mental institutions under the guise of protecting society from the offspring of people with mental illness. Many sterilizations were forced and performed on minorities. Thirty-three states would eventually allow involuntary sterilization in whomever lawmakers deemed unworthy to procreate. source

“You know what’s interesting about this group?” Feinstein told the group on Friday, in response to the group storming into her office. “I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I know what I’m doing.”

“You come in here, and you say it has to be my way or the highway. I don’t respond to that,” Feinstein continued. “I’ve gotten elected, I just ran. I was elected by almost a million-vote plurality. And I know what I’m doing. So you know, maybe people should listen a little bit.”

Ocasio-Cortez said Feinstein’s response was “like not good enough” because the legislation that the Democrats support is “frankly going to kill us.”

“This idea that ‘I’ve been working on this for x-amount of years,’ um, it’s like not good enough,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Like, we need a universal sense of urgency, and people are like trying to introduce watered-down proposals that are frankly going to kill us. A lack of urgency is going to kill us.” READ MORE

Things That Bernie Sanders Does NOT Want You to Know About Socialism

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

I thought about writing this piece, but then just left it in drafts.  I figured that most people understand about Socialism.  But then I felt that it might be a good resource for people who have grown children who are “feeling the Bern” and are all in for Bernie Sanders and his Socialism.

Sanders is just the kind of person who Benjamin Franklin was thinking of when he answered a woman as he came out of the Constitutional Convention. She asked him what kind of government we had.

He answered her:  “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

I believe that most of us have read Franklin’s statement above.

But today I found the speech Benjamin Franklin made at the Constitutional Convention. Being 81 years old at the time of the convention, he had another member read it.

Here is a part of the speech:

“In these sentiments, Sir, I…

February 25 When Faced with a Challenge

scripture reading: Joshua 1
key verses: Joshua 1:7–8

Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

The challenges of life come to us by many avenues—the death of a loved one, a new job, financial changes, the birth of a child. With every challenge, God is preparing us for the future.

Joshua faced a life–changing challenge when chosen to lead the nation of Israel into the promised land. Years of training had seen Joshua grow into a finely tuned warrior. But he was accustomed to the feel of a javelin in his hand, not the rod of leadership.

God told Joshua on three separate occasions how to handle the challenge placed before him. His message to Joshua is well summarized in these verses: “Be strong and very courageous.… This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success” (Josh. 1:7–8 nasb).

Was God questioning Joshua’s ability? No. He knew that with every challenge comes the possibility of falling to doubts and fears. Joshua enjoyed success in the midst of the challenge by recalling the words of God, binding them to his heart, and determining to walk in the ways of God. Begin your day with God’s Word. He will lead you through every challenge just as He did Joshua.

Heavenly Father, bring Your words to my remembrance as I face the challenges of this day. Help me to continually meditate upon Your promises.[1]

The people’s Christ

“I have exalted one chosen out of the people.” Psalm 89:19

suggested further reading: Acts 1:1–11

How exalted was he in his ascension! He went out from the city to the top of the hill, his disciples attending him while he waited the appointed moment. Mark his ascension! Bidding farewell to the whole circle, up he went gradually ascending, like the exaltation of a mist from the lake, or the cloud from the streaming river. Aloft he soared; by his own mighty buoyancy and elasticity he ascended up on high—not like Elijah, carried up by fiery horses; nor like Enoch of old, of whom it could be said he was not, for God took him. He went himself; and as he went, I think I see the angels looking down from heaven’s battlements, and crying, “See the conquering hero comes!” while at his nearer approach again they shouted, “See the conquering hero comes!” So his journey through the plains of ether is complete—he nears the gates of heaven—attending angels shout, “Lift up your heads, ye everlasting gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors!” The glorious hosts within scarce ask the question, “Who is this king of glory?” when from ten thousand thousand tongues there rolls an ocean of harmony, beating in mighty waves of music on the pearly gates and opening them at once, “The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.” Lo! heaven’s barriers are thrown wide open and cherubim are hastening to meet their monarch,

“They brought his chariot from afar,

To bear him to his throne;

Clapp’d their triumphant wings and said,

“The Saviour’s work is done.”

Behold he marches through the streets. See how kingdoms and powers fall down before him! Crowns are laid at his feet, and his Father says, “Well done, my Son, well done!” while heaven echoes with the shout, “Well done! Well done!” Up he climbs to that high throne, side by side with the Paternal Deity. “I have exalted one chosen out of the people.”

for meditation: Our ascended Lord Jesus Christ—his principal posture (he sits), his persistent pleading (he intercedes), his patient preparation (he waits to return)—Hebrews 10:11–13.

25 FEBRUARY 365 Days with Calvin

Sinning against God

Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. Psalm 51:4

suggested further reading: Psalm 32

Some believe that the psalmist here reverts to the circumstance of his sin, though it was committed against man and was concealed from every eye but of God. No one was aware of the double wrong that David had inflicted upon Uriah nor of the wanton manner in which he had exposed his army to danger. His crime which was unknown to men might be said to have been committed exclusively against God. Others think that David here intimates that, however deeply he was conscious of having injured men, he was primarily distressed about having violated the law of God.

But I believe David is saying here that even if the world pardoned him, God was the judge before whom David had to appear. Conscience hailed him to God’s bar. Thus the voice of man offered no relief to him, however much others might be disposed to forgive or to excuse or to flatter. David’s eyes and soul were directed to God, regardless of what man might think or say.

To one who is overwhelmed with the dreadfulness of having offended God and thus is subject to his sentence, no other accuser is needed. God is to the sinner more than a thousand men. There is every reason here to believe that to prevent his mind from being soothed into false peace by the flatteries of his court, David fully recognized the judgment of God upon his offense. It was an intolerable burden, even if he should escape trouble from the hands of his fellow creatures. This will be the experience of every true penitent.

for meditation: It is a blessing (though often a painful one) to realize that God is our judge. Our guilty consciences are often relieved by the forgiveness of others, but we should not rest until we are assured of God’s forgiveness.[1]

The Mailbag: God loves everybody?

Michelle Lesley

You stated that God loves each and every one of us. Can you help me understand that in terms of election? I had understood that He loves His elect, although it is His desire that each one be saved. I’m having trouble reconciling those two things! Thank you!

That is a super question. I love it when women dig into the deep questions of theology!

I’m not sure if I can help you understand that or not, because I’m not sure anybody out there has a complete grasp of that concept. God’s ways and His thoughts are much higher than our ways and our thoughts, and there are things He chooses not to reveal fully to us. This is one of those things. So if you ask this question of several different people, you’ll probably get several different answers. And anybody who thinks she’s got this completely figured out…well…
