Horrific: Parents punch their 30-week unborn baby to death, charges unlikely | News | LifeSite

July 20, 2018

Why shouldn’t they be charged with murder?

“…Horrendous attack

Medical staff found that the baby girl was suffering from a fractured skull and spinal injuries, “traumatic injuries… that led to the child’s death” shortly afterwards. They also noticed “severe bruising” on the woman’s stomach, and, suspicious of her explanation that she’d fallen while mopping, called the police.

During the police interview, the woman admitted that having decided together that they didn’t want the baby, she and her boyfriend agreed for him to beat her in an attempt to kill the baby.

Police say she told them he struck her stomach with his fists “at least 10 times,” and squeezed her, after which she “stopped feeling the baby move…”

How Christian Case Making Impacts the Convinced, the Opposed, and the Undecided | Cold Case Christianity

July 20, 2018

“…When we first meet someone and begin sharing what we believe, we may not even know to which of these three categories they belong. But once you find out, you can then set appropriate expectations. Don’t get discouraged when you seem to have no impact on someone who is opposed to Christianity. Don’t skip over those who are already believers. Don’t short shrift those who are still trying to make a decision. Once we understand our goals with each group we are trying to reach, we can effectively impact the convinced, the opposed, and the undecided…”

Young Earth or Old? The Debate That Divides Christians — But Shouldn’t | The Stream

“…Young-earthers are even more likely to criticize old-earth believers. I had a friend I’ll call Mark. Mark and I shared many church fellowship meals together, and we even did some church-based teaching together. Then he found out I’m not a young-earther. From that point forward he doubted my whole faith in Christ. It took him a year or two until he finally came back and told me, “You know, Tom, I’m starting to believe again you really do believe in the Bible after all.”

He was convinced there was only one way to believe the Bible: the young-earth way. That alone was enough — in spite of everything else he knew about me — to make him doubt I was really a Christian.

Barriers like that kill our witness. No one in the Church has any business raising them. And although young-earthers often say this is about heading off biblical “compromise,” very often they’re wrong about that…”

U.S. Congressman introduces bill targeting leftists who wear masks while rioting | News | LifeSite

July 20, 2018

“…Left-wing activists, who have taken to putting bandanas over their faces during anti-Trump protests, are furious over a new bill that would add an additional penalty to laws against infringing on others’ Constitutional rights if done while wearing a mask.

“Americans have the natural right to speak and protest freely; it is not a right to throw Molotov cocktails and beat people who assemble peacefully while hiding behind a mask,” said Rep. Dan Donovan, R-NY, who introduced the Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018…”
