Unborn Black Lives Matter

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Black Lives Matter–All black lives.  As a result of this fact, we can also conclude that “Unborn Black Lives Matter.” says, “According to 2010 census data, African Americans make up 12.6% of the U.S. population but the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that black women accounted for 35.4% of all abortions in 2009.”

The Alan Guttmacher Institute reports that black women are more than 5 times as likely as white women to have an abortion.  An average of 1,876 black babies are aborted every day in the United States. says, “This incidence of abortion has resulted in a tremendous loss of life. It has been estimated that since 1973 Black women have had about 16 million abortions. Michael Novak had calculated “Since the number of current living Blacks (in the U.S.) is 36 million, the missing 16 million represents an enormous loss, for without abortion, America’s Black community would now number 52 million persons. It would be 36 percent larger than it is. Abortion has swept through the Black community like a scythe, cutting down every fourth member.”

Erma Clardy Craven (deceased), Social Worker and Civil Rights Leader said, “Several years ago, when 17,000 aborted babies were found in a dumpster outside a pathology laboratory in Los, Angeles, California, some 12-15,000 were observed to be black.”


Since 1973, for every African American that has died due to violent crimes, 42 totally innocent African Americans have died from abortion.  The African American community, and everyone else, should be revolted by this latest civil rights issue.

Alveda C. King, daughter of slain civil-rights leader A.D. King and niece of Martin Luther King, Jr., writes:  “[Martin Luther King, Jr.] once said, ‘The Negro cannot win as long as he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for comfort and safety.’ How can the ‘Dream’ survive if we murder the children? Every aborted baby is like a slave in the womb of his or her mother. The mother decides his or her fate.”

Why do Unborn Black Lives Matter?  Because we have killed 30% of the African American population through legalized abortion.

The Judgment Seat of Christ

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Here’s my vision of the Judgment Seat of Christ (the “Bema”):

Each believer is called, one-by-one, to proceed to Christ’s throne where we are each judged according to our own works (2 Corinthians 5:10).  Other believers observe in order to recognize that believer’s individual achievements and to bring the maximum glory to God.  I like to think about three people in my life whom I believe will receive great rewards:

First, there will be the man who taught me (and many others) most of what I know about the Bible.  I look forward to seeing him walk forward and kneel before Christ, and then hearing the long list of good works he had performed on earth.  Then Christ will test his works by fire and the result will be much gold, silver, and precious stones.  I will be privileged to stand and applaud for him.

Second, there will be the man who showed me the power of prayer.  Again, he will receive huge and just rewards, and again the rest of us will acknowledge all that he did.

Finally, my wife will walk to Christ’s throne and kneel.  A long list will be read of all the service that she performed for Christ as a Christian teacher for some 30 years, and of all the blessings that she brought to so many lives.  Then He will add all of the works that she performed as a wife, a mother, and a grandmother.  Again, the result will be a huge pile of gold, silver, and precious stones, and I will lead the crowd with applause.

Then it will be my turn.  I will walk to the throne, wondering which of my good works Christ will honor, and which were really just selfish and self-motivated–ones that any unbeliever could have done.  I will also wonder how my rewards will compare to everyone else’s.  I will kneel, and my good works will be acknowledged.  Christ will test my works with fire, revealing that most of them were just hay, wood, and stubble, and I may even feel somewhat embarrassed.

Then Christ will reach into my wife’s pile of riches, remove one small precious gem, and place it with my small pile.  Then He will answer those who don’t understand His justice since each person is to be rewarded for his own works–not somebody else’s works.  Christ will simply say, “This man was Mrs. Weber’s husband.”

The Hypocrisy of the Federal Government and States’ Rights

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

In the United States, the states can choose not to execute criminals who have been found guilty of the most heinous crimes.  Yet, federal law dictates that no state can have a law prohibiting the execution/murder of completely innocent unborn children.  States don’t have to execute murderers but they have to allow the execution/murder of our children by abortion.

How Depression Thinks

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Depression causes one to dwell on negative things.  I recently watched the movie The Judge with Robert Downey, Jr. and Robert Duvall.  Throughout the movie, thoughts ran through my head reminding me of my depression.  These thoughts were not due to the story being told and its content–rather, just due to a situation or a sentence here or there.  Depression even prevents one from taking a couple of hours off from his depression to enjoy a good movie.

Robert Duvall’s character was a judge who had sat on the bench for 42 years.  When I was young, one of my primary goals was to keep a job for a lifetime; i.e., to be able to stay on the same job for 30 or more years, and then to retire from that job with a full pension.  I failed in that goal.  So, when I learned that this judge had kept his job for 42 years, I compared myself to him, and I failed in comparison.

Robert Downey, Jr.’s character was a lawyer who had finished first in his class at law school.  I thought that I could have been a successful lawyer, but I couldn’t even finish as the top of my high school class, so there’s another failure.

Another character, Glen, had high prospects of being a professional baseball pitcher until he had an accident that destroyed those hopes.  At several places in the movie, they mentioned that he could have been so good, and that he had to settle for running his own tire store.  So, to me that says there are three kinds of people:  stars; entrepreneurs that own their own business; then, the rest of us losers.

I wonder if I could have been an actor.  I did some acting in high school plays.  Maybe I could have developed my skills and become an Academy Award winner.  No, I probably would have just failed at that too.

Babies Are Humans

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

The fact that babies are humans makes sense except to pro-choice (pro-death) advocates.  They are enraged by the Doritos Super Bowl commercial that showed a human fetus on a sonogram going after Doritos.  They said that it “humanized a fetus” and, of course they’re correct.  We call this young child a “human” fetus in order to differentiate it from other animals, just as we call other people “humans.”  Science leaves no doubt that an unborn baby is a human person with human arms, human legs, a human heart, and thousands of other human parts, because he is a human.  However, maybe they would be less inclined to kill him if they thought of him as only an animal, because that kind of cruelty would violate their animal rights beliefs.  Abortion means aborting humans.

Socialism Isn’t Coming–It’s Already Here.

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Do you want to get rich?  Go on Welfare!  The Senate Budget Committee has released a report showing households living below the poverty line and receiving welfare payments are raking in the equivalent of $168 per day in benefits which come in the form of food stamps, housing, childcare, healthcare and more.  That’s $61,300 per year, tax free.  In 16 years you’re a millionaire.  This is probably the best way to destroy incentive to get a job.  Socialism isn’t coming, folks–it’s already here.

Does Hillary Really Care about People’s Lives?

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

In a recent presidential debate, Hillary Clinton was arguing her views on health care when she said:  “This is not about health care.  It’s about people’s lives.”  If people’s lives are so important to her, how can she support the murder of 40 million unborn babies in our country since 1973?  Murder is not less wrong when the victim is unwanted.  That’s the whole point of murder–to get rid of someone you don’t want.  One cannot care about people’s lives and support abortion.

Earthly Riches

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Proverbs 23:4-5 says, “Do not wear yourself out to get rich; do not trust your own cleverness.  Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle.”

Proverbs 13:11 says, “Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.”

In my younger years I wanted to be rich.  Now it seems that I’m able to trust God more.  He seems to have a chart (unbeknownst to me) that shows how much wealth he wants me to have.  If I trust him during times that are more meager, He prospers me.  If I start being greedy and trying to improve upon His work, He finds a way to slow me down.  He doesn’t want me to be poor–He just wants me to be content.

Ecclesiastes 2:26 says, “To the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God.”

Bernie Sanders Doesn’t Know What Hypocrisy Is

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

In a recent presidential debate, Bernie Sanders showed that he doesn’t know what hypocrisy is.  He was accusing Republicans of “hating” the government because they think government is too big.  He went on to say that they want to end Social Security, etc.  Then he said that when it comes to killing our unborn children, the Republicans suddenly change and want government to step in.  He said, “If that’s not hypocrisy, then I don’t know what hypocrisy is.”  Well, that isn’t hypocrisy, and no, he doesn’t seem to know what hypocrisy is.

The government is not charged with doing much, but we all agree that it is charged with keeping us free as long as we don’t hurt (or murder) others.  In other words, perhaps the first of a short list of what the government needs to do is to keep us from murdering each other because that destroys a person’s life as well as his freedom.  Other things such as social injustices, Social Security, etc. can’t even come into play if we can just snuff out other people’s lives at will.  We claim to offer “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” not “murder, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  That just makes no sense.  How can one have freedom to pursue happiness if he has no life?

Perhaps a better example of hypocrisy is when we claim to offer “choice” but not life.  It’s not possible. Abortion destroys both life and choice.

Proverbs 23:23 says, “Buy the truth and do not sell it — wisdom, instruction and insight as well.”  We buy the truth through thousands of hours of Bible study and prayer.  God gives us grace, and we are to spread that grace to others.
