Segment 1: LIFE – Where do YOU stand on abortion, Christian?
Yes, the country is divided in terms of the labels, ‘pro-choice and pro-life’. But the truth is many Americans are confused or ignorant of what the abortion procedure actually does as well as about who or what is living and developing inside a pregnant woman. Some surveys might suggest sixty percent of the public generally supports Roe v. Wade. But wait! They also strongly back some major restrictions on abortion.
According to Gallup, only twenty-five percent of adults say abortion should always be legal, and most Americans oppose legalized abortion in the second and third trimesters. Did you get that? You won’t hear this during a debate of Democrats. Polls by Rasmussen and others reveal that support for Roe v. Wade drops dramatically when people are informed that babies’ hearts start beating as early as six weeks in the womb!
Will this madness of moral relativism ever stop? Not without people open to God, the maker of our hearts; not without concerned citizens, truth proclaimers, and voters making our voices heard. A baby is not a body part of a woman and not just a “choice.” It’s a human life. Let’s pray that Americans will stop ignoring their God-given conscience and stop denying the facts.
Segment 2: HALLOWEEN: should Christians, shouldn’t Christians?
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2
Got Questions: Is there anything evil about a Christian dressing up as a princess or cowboy and going around the block asking for candy? No, there is not. Are there things about Halloween that are anti-Christian and should be avoided? Absolutely! If parents are going to allow their children to participate in Halloween, they should make sure to keep them from getting involved in the darker aspects of the day.
If Christians are going to take part in Halloween, their attitude, dress, and most importantly, their behavior should still reflect a redeemed life. But ‘how’ we do this presents many debates and opinions.
In Exodus 20:2-3 the Lord writes with His own hand:
“I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.”
In Deuteronomy 11:16 He warns the Israelites:
“Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them.”
The Psalmist warns in Psalm 81:9:
“You shall have no foreign god among you; you shall not bow down to an alien god.”
John even closes the “Love Letter” of 1 John with the admonition to “…keep yourselves from idols” (1 John 5:21).
