A Proverb a Day - Mentoring Letter February 2014

If I have only a short time to read, Proverbs is where I turn first. Every day that I do, I feel like my foundation is being shored up.  February 1, 2014 There’s nothing original about reading a chapter of Proverbs a day. Thirty-one days in a month (roughly); 31 chapters in the book. Easy. In fact, it’s so obvious, it’s easy to overlook. Don’t. Very little in my life has yielded such rewards with such little effort.

No Deposit; No Return

No one asked the important question: Is it wrong? Why not? Valentine's evening "20/20" on ABC did a short piece on the now well-known Dr. Death, Dr. Jack Kervorkian. He's been making headlines because he assists patients in committing suicide and he's invented a machine to help him out. He does the preliminary work, inserting the hypodermic needles and so forth, and then the patient pushes a button that allows a deadly drug to flow through the hypodermic and into the veins. Of course, this rapidly kills the patient.

The Vanishing Pro-Life Apologist

There's a growing taboo infecting crisis pregnancy centers around the country. Pro-lifers are getting tight-lipped on abortion. Here's why even CPC's are shying away from speaking frankly about the moral crime of the century. The last few years have witnessed a stunning development in the pro-life movement. More and more crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) refuse to discuss abortion. A new wave of pro-life leaders insist that victory will not be gained in the court of public opinion if the debate centers principally on the morality of abortion.
