What Is An Economic Abortion?

Why this post? We just had a “bipartisan agreement” on the budget and a shakeup in the stock market. Are the two related? To some extent. Since this is not an investment advice blog, I won’t elaborate. Instead, I will just observe that we all know borrowing lots of money can be a very bad idea.

Who is at fault for all the borrowing our government does? All of us. Why? Let’s consider the matter. Let’s begin by defining the seriousness of the problem.

What does the term “abortion” mean?


1: the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus: such as
a: spontaneous expulsion of a human fetus during the first 12 weeks of gestation — compare miscarriage
b: induced expulsion of a human fetus

A convent in flames


Fire & Roses: The Burning of the Charlestown Convent, 1834
By Nancy Lusignan Schultz
The Free Press, 2000, 317 pages

Catholic and even non-Catholic journalists and commentators often like to cite examples of anti-Catholic bigotry in American history. One of the most notorious examples of anti-Catholic hatred was the burning of the Mount Benedict convent and boarding school in Charlestown, Massachusetts in 1834. I had always wanted to acquaint myself with the particulars of that event, so I borrowed this book from the library.

The first convent and Catholic school in Boston, Massachusetts was established in 1820. Nuns from the Ursuline order were enlisted from Quebec to staff the fledgling school. Due to inadequate space, the convent-school was moved to an impressive, newly-built structure on Ploughed Hill* (renamed Mount Benedict) in Charlestown in 1827-1828. Most of the student boarders were daughters of wealthy Protestants.

The Protestant majority of Boston and…

Mormonism and the Massacre Of Which You Probably Never Heard: The Frightening Similarities of Mormonism and Islam

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

A few days ago, my husband asked me if I had ever heard of the Mountain Meadows Massacre.  I had not, so he sent me a link about this horrific event in American history.

This unthinkable massacre of men, women and children is one of the largest mass murders in the history of this country. Ironically, this happened on September 11th of the year 1857.

Don’t look for the possibility of Muslims being the perpetrators. No, this planned massacre of Arkansas emigrants trying to reach California, was carried out at the hands of Mormons.  Cold blooded murder – done in the name of God; well, for Mormons we will spell that “god.”

Before I write about this blood stained event in the history of our country, I want to show the reader a blog post from Eric Barger (of Olive Tree Ministries and Take A Stand Ministries). This…

AI: The Serpent’s Deception Revisited? :: By Ronda Lane

KNOWING THE TIME, because what's coming matters

This article may not be of interest to some. In fact, many may wonder why it’s even being written about here. After all, it may have nothing to do with scripture. Then again, it MAY. It’s not my intent to force-feed a conclusion; I will leave that to the discernment of each individual reader to […]  Source: AI: The Serpent’s Deception Revisited? :: By Ronda Lane – Rapture Ready

The Brainwashing of America – One Vulnerable Mind at a Time

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

Recently I wrote about visiting my sister, and how my ears and mind were continuously assaulted by CNN on her TV. That station was on from sunrise to sunset. I could feel the anger rising up in me, but I love my sister and did not want to hurt her feelings. At the same time, I felt that it was necessary to tell her the truth about the “Fake News” coming out of stations like CNN.

I began by asking her if she had seen the news on various events (I knew that CNN would not cover these happenings) and of course my sister said “No” she had never heard of these events.

I explained to her that CNN and other Leftist news organizations did not report on subjects or events which might put liberalism in a bad light. She did not know who George Soros was. She knew very…

Black Dresses And Moral Confusion

The Outspoken TULIP

Old Fashioned GirlExcuse me, but the newfound morality of the secular world (led by Hollywood) confuses me just a bit. Maybe I’ve been a Christian too long, and consequently I tend to reason from Scripture, but it seems to me that the world tries to have moral standards without being confined by moral standards.

If that analysis doesn’t make sense, let me suggest that the liberal elitists don’t make sense.

I just looked at some photos from this year’s Golden Globes Awards. In solidarity with the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, most of the female actors indeed wore black gowns. A few of those gowns covered them well, but most were as revealing and suggestive as usual. I suppose the wearers would argue that men shouldn’t look at them as sex objects even when they show skin, and that a man’s unwillingness to control his sexual responses shouldn’t restrict them from dressing as…

We Are Summoning Up Demons :: By Jan Markell

KNOWING THE TIME, because what's coming matters

Late last year I started to become aware of a phenomenon known as “artificial intelligence” or “AI.” The first troubling headline I saw stated, “Ex-Google Executive Anthony Levandowski is Founding a Church Where People Worship an Artificial Intelligence God.” The second headline read, “Why Humans Will Happily Follow a Robot Messiah.”   I started watching videos online of robots […] Read the rest of the post here  We Are Summoning Up Demons :: By Jan Markell – Rapture Ready

How People Deny Christ (and don’t realize it)…war on the saints pt 15

Pastor Bill Randles Blog

Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:  But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God. And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.  And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say. (Luke 12:8-12)

We have been making the point that true spiritual warfare has a confessional component. We live in the day and age of Satan’s lie. It is the conventional wisdom, accepted and approved by virtually the entire world.
