Alan's monthly letter for June 2009 Dear Friend, Muslims are the largest unreached people group in the world. Of the 1.5 billion Muslims in the world, 38,000 die every day and enter eternity without Jesus. Any Christian concerned with the Great Commission should therefore care about Islam. It’s the belief system that’s holding one in every five people on earth captive.
Alan's monthly letter for May 2009 Dear Friend, Every day, Americans are killing their children and we’re not doing enough to stop it. Although approximately 200 million Americans are Christian and most of those Christians are pro-life, we’re not having an impact that’s proportionate to our numbers. The problem is many Christians are pro-life in attitude, but not in action. They oppose women aborting their unborn children, but they do nothing to stop the killing.
Alan's monthly letter for April 2009 Dear Friend, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” Though I haven’t said that childhood phrase in a long time, it’s as true today as it was years ago on the playground. It still teaches us a valuable lesson: Don’t let name-calling get to you. One might think adults don’t call people names. Sure they do. They just disguise it by using more “sophisticated” terms.
Alan's monthly letter for March 2009 Dear Friend, There’s one fact about you I’m sure of: even though you’ll live forever, someday your earthly body will die. But that’s not really a problem. The real concern is that you may not die instantly. You might linger on after an accident or disease and someone else will be responsible for your care. And if right-to-die advocates have their way, you’ll have a duty to die – a moral obligation to kill yourself.
What do Nancy Reagan, Michael J. Fox, Mary Tyler Moore, and Christopher Reeve all have in common? They have all aggressively promoted embryonic stem cell research (ESCR). And why not? Scientists believe embryonic stem cells hold the potential to cure diseases like Parkinson’s, cancer, blindness, and countless other conditions. Who wouldn’t want that? There’s one critical problem. ESCR kills human embryos. This doesn’t bother many scientists who disqualify unborn human beings from personhood: Kill the human embryos. Get their stem cells. Do the research.
Alan's monthly letter for September 2008 Dear Friend, Which of these statements is taught in the Qur’an?
Alan's monthly letter for May 2008 Dear Friend, “An argument is not argumentative,” I told a university audience of 1,200 students and faculty. “An argument is simply an opinion with evidence or reasons to back it up.” When you make an argument, you’re not bickering or being mean-spirited – you’re simply offering your view and reasons for it.
Alan's monthly letter for April 2008 Dear Friend,
Alan's monthly letter for January 2008 Dear Friend, Emotional? Yes. Controversial? Yes. Complex? Not really. Abortion is a straightforward issue. There’s only one question to resolve for both sides of the debate. Once answered, the only option is to do the right thing.
Alan's monthly letter for November 2007 Dear Friend, Followers of Jesus Christ are killing their unborn children. Christians in your church and mine are having abortions. What is going on?
