Roundup

How God Healed Me from My Abortion — The pro-life movement isn’t just about fighting the evil of killing unwanted children, it is about the Good News of healing and forgiveness available through Jesus.

Higgins Defends and Explicates Russian Law Banning Homosexual Propaganda Among Minors — Despite what “experts” like Elton John tell you, the Russian law makes perfect sense and is actually quite Liberal with respect to adult freedoms.  It is telling that Obama, Elton and the rest of the radical Left go after laws like this and ignore the violence done by Muslim countries to gays (as well as to any straights that promote Christianity).

Most Americans favor increasing abortion restrictions — Just in case the mainstream media forgot to tell you this.

The death penalty deters crime.

This alone should result in a near total-turnover in Congress.  If they would just read the bills before passing them we’d have a lot less bills.

Why did the White House and State Department lie in such an extended and choreographed fashion?  This is a must-watch.

Watch porn and you’ve produced porn — Our pastor recently led a 90 min. session on how to fight porn (audio here).  It was very well done.

Six-Year-Old Girl Humiliated in Class for Referring to Bible — Yep.  This is how low we’ve sunk.

Not willing that any should perish — Pastor Timothy does a great job explaining a passage that is often misinterpreted.

‘Gay’ Doctor, Stephen Goldstone: Anal Sex Like a ‘Battering Ram’ for which Your ‘Sphincter Is No Match’ — Graphic title?  Yep.  But as with pictures of abortions, which is worse, precise words/images about an act or the act itself?

How to make accountability work — a great summary of how to have productive accountability groups.

Accountability Is… Accountability Is Not…
1. Effective accountability does not rely exclusively on accountability. …one weapon among many. …the only weapon in the fight against sin.
2. Effective accountability is involved early rather than late. …calling out for help in the moment of temptation andbefore you sin. …delayed confession—the regular reporting of sins already committed.1
3. Effective accountability involves someone with maturity. …able to function best when it occurs under the leadership of someone who has a track record of victory over the sin in question. …going to work well if you are seeking accountability with someone who is struggling and sinning in the same area as you.2
4) Effective accountability involves someone with authority (Heb 13:17). …involving those who can speak with authority. It may also involve those who “…watch over you as those who must give an account.” …fighting on your own; by definition, accountability is not a solo effort.
5) Effective accountability should avoid explicit details (Eph 5:11-12). …describing sin and temptation in general terms with the goal of enabling your accountability person to help you best. …not a place where explicit details are shared; we must avoid fueling further temptation.
6) Effective accountability places the responsibility for confession on the person with the problem. …full and free confession without prompting, pushing or demands for honesty. …going repeatedly through a list of questions without making honest and up-front confession of a particular sin.3
7) Effective accountability must actually hold people accountable. …being actively involved in the life of another Christian with regular and caring communication.4 …simply the commitment to meet regularly and work through a list of questions.

One thought on “Roundup”

  1. Laurie Higgins is an outstanding defender of the truth about homosexuality, homosexual behavior and the agenda of the homosexual activists. I receive emails from IFI and save her articles due to her ability to articulate that truth in a way that is solid and able to withstand any attack. Subscribing to IFI e-newsletters is worth the time to do so and costs nothing. They cover family issues in a way that would interest all.
