Super Bowl L commercial angers NARAL

Sunday, February 7, 2016, Super Bowl L was played. Like has been the case for many years now, the commercials shown during the broadcast were a huge part
of the overall production. The cost is astronomical for each commercial spot.  That being the case, the various entities vie to make the best spot. One of
them, made for the Doritos’ brand, featured an ultrasound of a baby, and it’s antics as its father ate Doritos. The National Abortion Rights Action League
(NARAL) is incensed that this commercial attempts to humanize the fetus.

Really? What do they think that what is shown by the ultrasound inside the woman’s womb is? Is it an alien? Is it a tissue blob? Knowing that the end of
this thing should be its birth, if it isn’t human during the ultrasound, when does it become human? Does the mother or father exercise god-like power and
pronounce it human or not? The reason for NARAL’s anger is very transparent.  This ultrasound, as every ultrasound of a pregnant woman’s womb, shows a tiny
human being, and that tiny human being has been endowed by its Creator with certain unalienable rights, such as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
As such, aborting that tiny human being is murder. And NARAL doesn’t like being exposed as supporting the murder of innocent human beings.

I want to show you a specific example from the Bible, in Luke 1:39-45, that will contradict what NARAL said about the Super Bowl L Doritos commercial. Here’s
the scripture:

“Now at this time Mary arose and went in a hurry to the hill country, to a city of Judah, and entered the house of Zacharias and
greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. And
she cried out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! And how has it happened to me, that
the mother of my Lord would come to me? For behold, when the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy. And blessed is
she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.”

The ‘baby’ leaped in her womb. ‘blessed is the fruit of your womb’. The ‘baby’ leaped in my womb. 2000 years ago, Luke, a
physician, knew, as did Elizabeth and Mary, that it was a human being that was in the uterus.

The Lord’s Message Was Himself

Fundamentally, our Lord's message was Himself. He did not come merely to preach a Gospel; He himself is that Gospel. He did not come merely to give bread; He said, "I am the bread." He did not come merely to shed light; He said, "I am the light." He did not come merely to show the door; He said, "I am the door." He did not come merely to name a shepherd; He said, "I am the shepherd." He did not come merely to point the way; He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life."
--J. Sidlow Baxter (1903-1999, Australian born pastor and theologian who authored as many as thirty books)

The Beginning of Coldness in the Heart

"Forsake not the assembling of yourselves together," is a most important exhortation.
Even if we should not derive any especial benefit, at the time, so far as we are
conscious, yet we may be kept from much harm. And very frequently the beginning
of coldness of heart is nourished by keeping away from the meetings of the saints.
-- George Muller

Freedom & Extinction

I came across this profound quote of President Ronald Reagan that is worth sharing:

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We did not pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

Thanksgiving – Thursday, November 24, 2011

Why should we here in the U.S.A. be thankful? "Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, for His mercy endures forever." And we are told in the Bible, "It is He that made us and not we ourselves. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture." Let's not allow ourselves to fall below the level of animals as did the people of God addressed in Isaiah 1: "The ox knows his owner, and the donkey its master's manger; but Israel does not know, my people do not consider." Take time to thank the Lord for all that He does. And if you have not yet received the gift of eternal life, you may do so by accepting it as a free gift paid for by the precious blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God. "As many as received Him, to them He gave the power to become sons of God"
