Lutheran, Episcopal and United Church of Christ Clergy: “We Stand With Planned Parenthood” Abortion Biz
A group of female clergy from Iowa wrote a letter…to state their support of the abortion chain Planned Parenthood publicly.
The letter, published in the Des Moines Register on [March 15], included signatures from seven women pastors from the United Church of Christ, United Methodist Church, Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, Episcopal Church, Unitarian Universalist Association, Christian Church (Disciple of Christ), and Unity Church….
The pastors praised Planned Parenthood’s work and blasted a state bill that would defund the abortion group and redirect tax dollars to community health centers that don’t provide abortions….
In February, the Iowa Senate passed Senate File 2 to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups in the state. The legislation would direct taxpayer funding to federally qualified health centers that provide more comprehensive healthcare but not abortions. The bill currently is being considered in the state house.
In their letter, the pastors described the bill as “dangerous” and “extreme” legislation that “threatens access to basic healthcare for low-income women.”

China Aborts Over 63,000 Unborn Babies Every Single Day
Ask the average person on the street how many abortions take place in America each year, and it is likely that few…will know the answer.
The average annual number of abortions in America currently is just under one million – a number that tends to surprise and shock people. But abortion numbers in the U.S. are small compared to those in China.
Every year more unborn babies are killed in abortions in China…than anywhere else in the world. Breitbart News reports that according to Chinese government data, more than 63,000 unborn babies are killed in abortions every single day in China. -LifeNews.com

The best remedy for a sick church is to put it on a soul-winning diet. -T.J. Bach
It is utterly false to suppose that the Word of the Lord, preached by a coldhearted, unanointed preacher who preaches in human wisdom and for selfish purposes, will bring in proper fruit the same as if preached by one whose heart is set aflame by the Holy Spirit. It takes the power of God to preach the Word of God. The Word of God is not a sword of man; it is the Sword of the Spirit. -John R. Rice
The foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing is a vice so mean and low that every person of sense and character detests and despises it. -George Washington
Samson with the Holy Spirit upon him could take the jawbone of an ass and lay dead a thousand Philistines. Samson without the Holy Spirit was as weak as a newborn babe. And so it is with the church. Without the Holy Spirit, you are as sounding brass and tinkling cymbals, simply four walls and a roof, a pipe organ and a preacher to do a little stunt on Sunday morning and evening. -Billy Sunday
There is one thing worse than not coming to church, and that is to come and do nothing about the message one hears. James tells us that hearing without doing means self-deception. (1:22) -Vance Havner

It is not mine to amend or adapt the Gospel. What! Shall we attempt to improve upon what God has revealed? The Infinitely Wise-is He to be corrected by creatures of a day? Is the infallible revelation of the infallible Jehovah to be shaped, moderated and toned down to the fashions and fancies of the hour? God forgive us if we have ever altered His Word unwittingly; wittingly we have not done so, nor will we. -Charles Spurgeon
There is a world of difference between…getting things off your chest and pouring out your heart. -Vance Havner
Something about us religious humans makes us want to add to the Gospel. We want to help God with our salvation. If we can’t help Him save us, we want to help keep ourselves saved. -Curtis Hutson

NFL Now Has a Homosexual Ad
The ad “Fans of love/Love Has No Labels” relies on the kiss cam at the January 29 Pro Bowl to show various couples kissing each other or hugging, including two homosexual men and two lesbian women. The ad also posts screen graphics informing people that “love has no gender,” among other slogans. -WND.com
Editor’s Comments: Since the flap over refusing to salute the American flag by Colin Kaepernick and the NFL’s positioning itself as an advocate of the homosexual lobby, viewership has dropped eight percent nationwide. I know a lot of people seem pretty “crazy” about football, but I’m confident many fans are not going to support this “crazy” stuff.
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Church:
A man who hadn’t lived the best kind of life passed away. At the funeral, the preacher gave a flowery description of the man, telling what a good husband and father he had been. Finally, the wife leaned over to her little boy and whispered, “Go up and see if that’s your daddy in that coffin.”
A homiletics student asked his professor if a good beginning and a good ending were the markings of a good sermon. The professor replied, “Yes, if they come close enough together!”
The sermon had gone on a long, long time. A visitor leaned over to the person next to him and whispered, “How long has he been preaching?” The reply, “Almost thirty years.” “Oh,” said the stranger, “I guess I’ll stay. He ought to be through soon.”
There must come with decision for truth a corresponding protest against error. -Charles Spurgeon
So, preacher, you are discouraged and depressed and want to quit! Don’t feel alone; I want to quit every week. You had a split, and half your members left you. Some deacon went home and climbed up Miff Tree and held the greenbacks, trying to starve you out. Man, don’t let them know you are hungry! Eat grass and wild onions and drink branch water. Get up on Sunday smiling and say, “Boy, I’m on such a good diet!” But don’t eat wild persimmons. Don’t let the Devil know you are hungry. Curtis Hutson
Christ has not promised His people a smooth passage, but only a safe landing. In embarking on the Christian life, we are not guaranteed a sunlit sea, but rather are advised of a storm-tossed ocean; and it is far better to be in a storm with Him than in a calm without Him. -W. Graham Scroggle
The apostle Paul was the greatest of all the apostles, and his greatness lay most of all in that he was “in labours more abundant” (II Corinthians 11:23). -John R. Rice
People do not miss church services because they live too far from the building; they miss church because they live too far from God.
You say, “I’ll be a Christian and go to Heaven without a church.” Yes, and you can go to Europe without getting on board a ship or airplane. The swimming is good, but the sharks are waiting for those who take that route. If a man is saved, he should look for a good Bible-believing church right away! -Billy Sunday
His promises are checks to be cashed, not mere mottoes to hang on the wall! -Vance Havner
Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe who prattles on her lap; let it be taught in the school, in seminaries and in colleges; let it be written in almanacs. -Abraham Lincoln
A great many people want to bring their faith, their works, and their good deeds to Him for salvation. Bring your sins, and He will bear them away into the wilderness of forgetfulness, and you will never see them again. -D. L. Moody
