The Pro-Life Intramural, Part 2
By Ecce Verum   |   05.03.24
Last time, we discussed the two sides of the intramural pro-life debate: abolitionists and prudentialists. And we observed that each side has a valid perspective based on a very true aspect of the issue. But shall the twain ever meet?
“Never Misunderestimate.”
I trust you’ll recall the source of this verbal gaffe. It came from our esteemed former president, George W. Bush. It was his attempt to define when someone undervalues or underestimates something. It was a malaprop we all understood. 
Accomplices to Exploitation
By Thomas Hampson   |   05.02.24
Stories of children reported to be victims of sexual exploitation are so familiar these days that they have become little more than background noise in the daily news feed. Even our legislators don’t give this exploitation a second thought. At least, that’s the impression I get from a review of HB 5239.
The Global Threat of the WHO Pandemic Agreement
By Mae Arthur   |   05.01.24
Picture this: nations all over the world enter into a binding agreement, not with one another, but with a global governing body that they empower to essentially take over in case of emergency.
Only God Should Play God, Part 2
By Ecce Verum   |   05.01.24
Last time, we discussed several moral issues that arise when man decides to "play God" in the area of human reproduction. In vitro fertilization always takes innocent life. Embryonic genetic editing tends towards the sad assumption that the mother is the only patient involved, because the embryo is not considered a patient. And efforts to alter a baby's genetics don't have an easy line between "health-related concerns" and flat-out "child enhancement."
TruPlay– A Christian Alternative to Children’s Entertainment
By Alyssa Sonnenburg   |   04.30.24
Online games and videos are popular in today’s day and age, and many of these games are marketed towards children. YouTube Kids, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and the PlayStation 5 are common platforms that children use to access online games and entertainment.
Only God Should Play God, Part 1
By Ecce Verum   |   04.27.24
The pro-life movement is solidly consolidated in its stance on abortion. And this is for good reason, given how heinous and grievous of a crime abortion is. However, abortion is not the only contemporary issue fundamentally affecting nascent life. One issue on which pro-lifers arguably have less of a consensus involves the medical practices for various forms of artificial reproductive technology.
The Pro-Life Intramural, Part 1
By Ecce Verum   |   04.25.24
There's a common debate that tends to pop up in pro-life circles when "partial solutions" to the evil of abortion are proposed. Incremental pro-life moves, such as a ban on abortion after the baby is 15 weeks old, tend to draw both ire and praise from the same side of the aisle.
Bring Life to the Ballot Box
It comes as no surprise to me that the so-called “progressive” mind embraces the idea of a woman’s choice to end a pregnancy. Nor does it surprise me that those of the libertarian mindset are willing to jump on the bandwagon for “choice" as well. It’s their “keep government out of our bedroom” mentality. 
“They Think It’s Murder. And It Kind of Is.”
By Calvin Lindstrom   |   04.23.24
For over 20 years, Bill Maher has hosted the show “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO. Recently, Maher was joined by Piers Morgan and Gillian Tett, a columnist for the Financial Times, to discuss the topic of abortion. In the clip, Morgan stated that Donald Trump’s recently articulated compromise on abortion is not that different from European countries.
Choose You This Day: Part 2
By Rev. Thorin Anderson   |   04.23.24
The atheistic Left began their assault on America over seventy years ago. Their progress was quite slow in the beginning, and one must give them credit for their determination. They have not quit to this day! A principal actor in this effort has been the Communist Party USA, but it is only one of numerous Leftist groups seeking to divide and destroy this great nation (They all lean Marxist).
Progressives in Illinois Threaten Parental Authority Again
By Mae Arthur   |   04.22.24
No one knows for sure who first said the phrase, “If your only tool is a hammer, then every problem looks like a nail.” Whether it was Mark Twain, Abraham Maslow, or someone else, it perfectly describes Illinois Democrats’ latest push to usurp control over our state’s kids.
“Plastics, Benjamin.”
“Plastics, Benjamin.” Most people in the Boomer generation, who are movie goers, could tell you exactly the source of that classic line.
What Do Diapers and Abortion Have in Common? More Than You Know.
By Alyssa Sonnenburg   |   04.18.24
Would you be surprised to learn that major diaper companies support Planned Parenthood? Yes, you read that correctly. Major diaper companies such as Huggies, Pampers, Luvs, and even Honest donate to Planned Parenthood.

By Brandon Myers   |   04.16.24
Pray faithfully in secret and grow in your prayer life by reading God’s written revealed Word and responding with heartfelt praise, sincere thanks, and bold-and-specific petitions for Christ’s church, candidates, and other civil magistrates. If you are a pastor pray faithfully and regularly in your Lord’s Day worship services for our state, our nation and the nations.
