A parasitic relationship

  Not long ago I heard one of my students refer to the unborn as a parasite when as a class, we were discussing the abortion issue. If you were to look up the definition of a parasitic relationship, you would see that a parasite lives off another organism which we call the host, this results in harm or even death of the host. Examples of parasites are tapeworms, fleas, and lice.  A harsh term for the unborn don’t you think? My class was split on this issue and actually wanted a debate on this divisive subject, but it ended up being rather one-sided because on the day we were to hold...

Re-Think

Re-Think

My wife and I took our youngest daughter and two of her friends to the Southern California Re-Think conference this weekend. Re-Think is hosted by Stand To Reason, a Christian ministry that equips Christians to engage the culture with confidence, clear thinking, and grace on many of the difficult issues that surround us today. The Re-Think conference targets Jr. High, High school, and college age youth so they are prepared when they hear how Christians are intolerant toward LGBT groups, or unloving because they want to force women to have unwanted children. Also foolish to believe in the...

Engaging the Culture

Engaging the Culture

Below is a response I received from someone, (I will call Joe) when I asked if they were pro-life. This was a private message because he was not comfortable discussing abortion, (no doubt a hot topic for some) on his Facebook page. But he gave me permission to use it on my blog.  So in reference towards Pro Life or Pro Choice, I really do not speak to either issue because I feel as if I have no power whether the law on this will change… I do feel abortion is morally wrong, but I would never condemn anyone on their life choices…nor do I believe I should be the judge of...

Bill Nye on abortion

Not long ago, Bill Nye-the Science Guy posted a video about abortion, or women’s rights concerning the choice of abortion. No doubt this is a difficult issue, and I have recently tackled the problem of abortion from the most difficult perspective of rape and incest. So responding to a pro-choice video with relatively short replies hardly does the issue justice. Nevertheless, I decided it would be worth my time to respond within the context of the video, as opposed to someone watching the video and then hoping they would read my two or three page response in a blog post.     Share...

What about rape and incest?

What about rape and incest?

This is the only comment like this I will ever make: I am not going to tell a woman who is pregnant by rape that she has to have the child. Great if she wants to, but I refuse to force her. Or a girl pregnant by incest. Or a woman who may die with another pregnancy. Or someone who doesn’t want a child. And no, I will not reply to or even read comments about my comment. Yes, it’s a rotten way to do it. I wish there were no abortions, but women – not me, not you, not our churches – have to make this decision. This was a recent post in a Facebook thread I had been...
