The word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

Sorry I had been away. I had a (once) close friend pass away last week at the age of 43. His nephew reminisced at the funeral that on the night before he had passed away, he warned him (the nephew) how short life was… We always think that we have time to re-establish friendships, say we are sorry, right the wrong. Truth is, we do not know how long we have.

Bias Won Out
by Gary Schneeberger, CitizenLink editor

Looking for some textbook examples of the media’s hostility toward the biblical view of homosexuality? Look no further than the coverage of last weekend’s Love Won Out conference.

It’s hard to imagine a better case study in the varied forms media bias can take than what Houston-area newspapers and TV stations provided in their coverage of Focus on the Family’s Love Won Out conference last Saturday. Just about every way journalists can declare their opposition to Christian worldview was on display – and studying the subtle and not-so-subtle examples of this leftward tilt may give you the ammunition you need to fight it in your own back yard. read article…

No Longer Just A Kiss
BreakPoint with Charles Colson
March 4, 2005

In his book Ask Me Anything, Dr. J. Budziszewski provides a rejoinder. While gays equate “love” with “acceptance,” Budziszewski offers another view: “Love is a commitment of the will to the true good of the other person. . . . [A] perfect Lover [that is, God] would want the perfect good of the beloved. . . . He would loathe and detest whatever destroyed the beloved’s good-no matter how much the beloved desired it.” And what destroys us-all of us-is sin. If we refuse to let go of it, writes Budziszewski, we say to the perfect Lover, “I bind myself to my destruction! Accept me-and my destruction with me!”

There is nothing “loving” in condoning or promoting homosexual acts. As Virginia Delegate Richard Black said in response to the play, “This is a considerable health hazard right now. If we encourage just one child to experiment and contract the HIV virus, then we have done an enormous disservice to our children.” Indeed, not only do we put them at physical risk, but at spiritual risk by turning them against who they are as God created them. read article
