Street preacher in Charlotte tells it like it is (includes the video ABORTION OF THE HUMAN RACE) (Editorial Cartoon)

Jason Rapert pictured below:

I have noticed that a good Christian man like State Senator Jason Rapert of Conway, Arkansas has been falsely accused of racism for a 2011 speech to the Tea Party in Little Rock, but now even many liberal journalists like John Brummett have admitted that there was nothing racial at all in his speech. It is true that several national  national publications like the Huffington Post, NY Magazine, and other liberal blogs were misled  by this video hack job on Jason Rapert done by The Nation, but now several national articles have surfaced admitting there is no racial element in Rapert’s 2011 speech.

Obviously what was behind this attack on Senator Rapert was the anger many pro-abortion forces had for the pro-life bill he was proposing and the pro-abortion forces were willing to present a video hack job of his 20 minute speech to falesly accuse him of racism.

In the film “Abortion of the Human Race” in the film series “Whatever happened to the Race?” by Francis Schaeffer and Dr. C. Everett Koop the issue of slavery and the Dred Scott Supreme Court decision is compared to the Roe v. Wade decision of January 22, 1973 when unborn children were not recognized as human beings. I wish everyone reading this would take just 45 minutes and watch this film.

Francis Schaeffer: “Whatever Happened to the Human Race” (Episode 1) ABORTION OF THE HUMAN RACE

Published on Oct 6, 2012 by

Francis Schaeffer

Francis Schaeffer really got the evangelicals like John MacArthur and R.C.Sproul to get involved in the pro-life movement. I am very grateful that he was sensitive enough to see what was coming down the pike at such an early time. In fact, my former pastor Dr. Bill Elliff actually saw Schaeffer speak about the upcoming legalization of abortion back in 1970.

On 2-5-13 while discussing  Rapert’s pro-life bill the person using the username “WhatAmberLoves,” commented on the Arkansas Times Blog:

Slavery, once “legal”, was abolished. Segregation, once “legal”, was abolished. Humans inflicting pain and killing their own unborn children, currently legal, will hopefully soon be abolished as well. 

To the author and commenters opposing the bills: While Mr. Brantley and supporters are busy facilitating ending the life of conceived yet unborn children, the rest of us are multiplying successfully, raising the next wave of future voters and doing our best to simultaneously minimize our children’s exposure to their message that humans killing offspring is acceptable. Mr. Brantley and some of the commenters on this article seem to want the rest of us in a modern, evolved society to think that it is acceptable behavior for humans to destroy their unborn children. 

On the Abolitionist Society of North Carolina facebook page I saw a picture of a billboard that said, “The KKK lynched 3500 African Americans. Planned Parenthood kills that many unborn African Americans every couple of months.”

Louis C.K. plays Abraham Lincoln on an episode of Saturday Night Live on 11-2-12. In this scene Lincoln is doing stand up comedy in New York. Louis said, “One thing I am really tired of is arguing with slave owners about slavery. ‘Oh but I like owning people,’ they will say. You have to act like you are kind of cool with it. You have to act like this is a 50/50 issue. YOU KNOW I KINDA THINK THAT OWNING A PERSON IS NOT COOL!!!!

__________

Lincoln was right to fight for the right for blacks to receive the same rights of personhood that we all have today in the sight of the U.S. government. The same should be true for the unborn children in our country today.

Paul Greenberg, editor of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette once was pro-abortion but now he is pro-life. He said to the Human Life Foundation at the Union League Club in New York City the following:

The trick is to speak of fetuses, not unborn children. So long as the victims are a faceless abstraction, anything can be done to them.

Just don’t look too closely at those sonograms. The way I studied the first pictures of my first grandson. Astounding. We are indeed strangely and wonderfully made.

By now the toll has reached some 50 million of those wondrous creations aborted in America since 1973. That’s not some abstract theory or philosophical argument.

It is a fact, and facts are stubborn things. Some even carry their own imperatives, moral imperatives that can be ignored only so long. So I changed my mind, and changed sides.

We’ve become very good at preaching to the converted, those of us who still believe in life. So good at it we may have forgotten what Martin Luther King Jr.

tried to teach us-that we have a hidden ally in the hearts of our opponents. And we must never cease appealing to it. They are not our enemies, but allies in waiting.

They have consciences. They may yet come around. I did.

All you people aren’t supposed to be here tonight, you know. Don’t you realize this issue was settled years ago, decades ago? Haven’t you heard of Roe v. Wade? Don’t you know we’re fighting for a lost cause? Abortion on demand is the law of the land. And always will be.

So we’re told. Just as a different generation of Americans was told that Dred Scott v. Sandford was the law of the land. The slavery question had been settled once and for all. All the states were nowgoing to be slave states. When it came to having any rights, Negro slaves were but chattel-property like any other. Case closed. To paraphrase my favorite line from a Ring Lardner short story: Shut up, they explained.

Those old-time abolitionists and Republicans and Free-Soil Democrats and Antislavery Whigs-whose portraits decorate these walls-were a motley crew, as variegated as we are here tonight. They, too, were fighting for a supposedly hopeless cause, that of freedom. As we fight for life. But they understood something the sophisticates of their time didn’t:

No good cause is forever lost.

Recently I ran across this great speech given by a member of a pro-life group in North Carolina. He gave the speech and put it on you tube and it compares the rights of the unborn child today to those of the slaves during civil war time in the USA.

Preaching in Uptown Charlotte on the American Holocaust on January 22, 2013.

January 22, 2013 marked the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that institutionalized abortion on demand in America. This has been an intense week for those engaged in the battle for life in the culture of death. I have been very encouraged by what I am seeing take place in the Christian community, though there is much more to be done if abortion is to ever be abolished. On Tuesday, I posted the following on facebook:

I am encouraged by my fb feed today as it has been swamped with talk of RvW and abolishing abortion. I have seen folks posting on the issue that I have not see posting before, including various ministry leaders. Other leaders are becoming more vocal, and I am so grateful for that. My hope is that engaging the culture of death will become “mainstream” in the true church of Jesus Christ, and I am encouraged by what I am seeing. It does seem like the Body of Christ is waking up, and that is worthy of acknowledgment and praise to the Lord. I just hope we hear more from those who had something to say today many more times before January 22, 2014, and that they will take steps to become more active to minister to abortion-minded parents and our pre-born neighbors. The love of Christ commands this of us.

With this in mind, I’d like to share some resources with you that may be an encouragement for you to become active in the necessary fight against abortion. It is time for the church to wake up and answer the call to love our pre-born neighbors as ourselves. Many are doing just that, but we must continue talking about, preaching against it, and ministering to those enslaved to sin who would sacrifice their own children on the altar of self.

On the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, I preached the following message in Uptown Charlotte:

Across the street from where I preached, Cities4Life held their annual memorial service in Uptown Charlotte. It was a great turnout and encouragement to Christians in our city to mobilize to engage the culture of death with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Make sure you watch until the end as David Benham, founder of Cities4Life, truly brings this crisis into perspective:

R.C. Sproul sat down with John MacArthur on January 22 to discuss the holocaust of abortion in America. MacArthur really spoke to the needed call to our churches when he said,

Our goal has to be to awaken the church.

Amen, and that is one of the goals of Abolish Human Abortion.  Make sure you check out the AHA website, Youtube, and facebook pages.  If you are in North Carolina, “like” the Abolitionist Society of North Carolina page and stay tuned for our AHANC website launch.

Even if you do not have an abortion mill near your community, you can get some Abolish Human Abortion gear at AHAGear.com, or print some of these posters and stand on a street corner in your city. They just might open a door for you to declare the Gospel to someone, which is the only answer to abortion.

A few weeks ago, I posed the question: Would You Seek the Abolition of Pedophilia?  So there it is again in case you missed it.

Jesse Johnson shared his thoughts over at The Cripplegate on what the Abortion Memorial might look like after abortion is abolished in America.

A branch of Cities4Life just launched that will serve to equip Christians to minister at their local abortion mills. Check out Sidewalks4Life for more details.

If you live near Charlotte, join us on February 1-2 for Frontline Training. This is a great way to learn how to minister at abortion mills, and there will be practical experience to be gained as we lead the class to the abortion mill next Saturday morning.  Check out the facebook event page or see the Cities4Life blog for more details.

I am currently reading Francis Schaeffer’s A Christian Manifesto, and will then read Whatever Happened to the Human Race. These are both must reads if you want to understand what Christianity looks like in a culture that kills its own children – and what we must do to stop it.

At Ligonier, R.C. Sproul Jr. published Roe v. Wade: A Generation Lost, and concluded with the following:

We must be politically active. We must serve moms in crisis. We must speak prophetically to both the world and the church, remembering that one in six abortions is procured by an evangelical. First, however, we must weep. First, our hearts have to be broken, lest our pro-life activities lead us to forget. First we must repent because for a generation we have thought and acted like a movement, while every day babies are being murdered. First we must recognize that the problem isn’t how many were killed over the past forty years, but is instead how many will be killed in the next forty minutes. We must pledge not to not forget what has happened, but to not forget what is happening. Last we must remember that there is only one thing that can wash the blood from our hands, the blood from His.

Crown Rights Media is currently developing a new documentary on abortion that will serve to stir the church to action. The trailer can be seen at Babiesaremurderedhere.com, and also like the facebook fan page. Please spread the word. Everywhere.

Finally, while filming for the Babies Are Murdered Here documentary, Marcus Pittman snapped the following photo of Orlando sidewalk missionary, John Barros. Pittman adds the caption,

While filming in Orlando, today John Barros got a surprise visit from Chase. Chase is 19 Days old and came to visit with his mom and dad to say thanks for being there, telling my mom the Gospel and saving my life.

This is the face of Gospel-driven abortion ministry. Won’t you become a part of it?

Arkansas Media Watch accuses Reagan of increasing spending

Did Ronald Reagan explode federal spending?

On the Arkansas Times Blog on July 21, 2011, the link by Arkansas Media Watch to an article that was critical of Ronald Wilson Reagan (who by the way I named my son Wilson after).

In the article “Arkansas Democrat Gazette editors make fun of Ronald Reagan” by arkansasmediawatch on July 21, 2011 you will read:

Today’s Arkansas Democrat Gazette editorial is a lighthearted satire on Reagan deficit spending. It opens with the following quote from Saint Reagan himself:

“Governments don’t reduce deficits by raising taxes on the people; governments reduce deficits by controlling spending and stimulating new wealth.”

Excellent joke – I never thought Paul Greenberg had a sense of humor. Reagan of course never balanced a budget, on the contrary he was responsible for record deficits as high as 6% of GDP, almost tripling the national debt. Neither did he control spending – he presided over a 69% increase in federal spending, much of which went to the military.

The truth is very different. After adjusting for inflation, federal spending grew less than 1% a year during the 8 years Reagan was in office. Take a look at the video clip below:

Take a look at this article below. To Fix the Budget, Bring Back Reagan…or Even Clinton

Posted by Daniel J. Mitchell

President Obama unveiled his fiscal year 2012 budget today, and there’s good news and bad news. The good news is that there’s no major initiative such as the so-called stimulus scheme or the government-run healthcare proposal. The bad news, though, is that government is far too big and Obama’s budget does nothing to address this problem.

But perhaps the folks on Capitol Hill will be more responsible and actually try to save America from becoming a big-government, European-style welfare state. The solution may not be easy, but it is simple. Lawmakers merely need to restrain the growth of government spending so that it grows slower than the private economy.

Actual spending cuts would be the best option, of course, but limiting the growth of spending is all that’s needed to slowly shrink the burden of government spending relative to gross domestic product.

Fortunately, we have two role models from recent history that show it is possible to control the federal budget. This video from the Center for Freedom and Prosperity uses data from the Historical Tables of the Budget to demonstrate the fiscal policy achievements of both Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton.

Some people will want to argue about who gets credit for the good fiscal policy of the 1980s and 1990s.

Bill Clinton’s performance, for instance, may not have been so impressive if he had succeeded in pushing through his version of government-run healthcare or if he didn’t have to deal with a Republican Congress after the 1994 elections. But that’s a debate for partisans. All that matters is that the burden of government spending fell during Bill Clinton’s reign, and that was good for the budget and good for the economy. And there’s no question he did a much better job than George W. Bush.

Indeed, a major theme in this new video is that the past 10 years have been a fiscal disaster. Both Bush and Obama have dramatically boosted the burden of government spending — largely because of rapid increases in domestic spending.

This is one of the reasons why the economy is weak. For further information, this video looks at the theoretical case for small government and this video examines the empirical evidence against big government.

Another problem is that many people in Washington are fixated on deficits and debt, but that’s akin to focusing on symptoms and ignoring the underlying disease. To elaborate, this video explains that America’s fiscal problem is too much spending rather than too much debt.

Last but not least, this video reviews the theory and evidence for the “Rahn Curve,” which is the notion that there is a growth-maximizing level of government outlays. The bad news is that government already is far too big in the United States. This is undermining prosperity and reducing competitiveness.
