3 Truths About Unborn Babies

Truth #1: There’s Only One Question That Matters

The One Question: Is the unborn baby a human life?

  • If it is not a human life, then no justification to destroy it is needed.
  • If it is a human life, then no justification to destroy it is sufficient.

Truth #2: Unborn Baby = Undeniably Human Life

Scientifically human: The scientific conclusion that human life begins at conception (sperm-egg fusion) is uncontested. Two criteria for distinguishing one cell type from another are: composition and behavior. At conception, a baby has unique cells, proteins, RNA and DNA with interdependent organized functions. It is fully human, not partially human. 

Biblically human: Jesus was recognized as the Messiah while still in the womb.

Philosophically human: The only differences between an unborn baby and a one-day old baby is location and age. The difference between a one-day old baby and a 5-year old child is age.

Truth #3: Every Human Life Has Value

  • No one would argue for destroying the life of an adult or child who was conceived in rape or incest, or was no longer wanted, or was inconvenient.
  • No one would argue the same when that adult was a child.
  • There is no difference in value for a person before they are born.


We Must Protect Pre-Born Life with a Constitutional Amendment:

  • Slavery was abolished by a Constitutional Amendment.
  • Women were given the right to vote with a Constitutional Amendment.
  • The views of the majority did not matter because they were human rights issues.

There were no exceptions.

3 Miraculous Reminders About Jesus this Christmas

YouTube player

Reminder #1: The Birth of Jesus Was Prophesied Hundreds of Years in Advance

The Bible includes over 300 prophecies about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, from Genesis to Revelation. 

There are 12 prophecies just about the birth of Christ, including where He would be born, how He would be born and that He would be born of a virgin. 

Reminder #2: Christ’s Death and Resurrection Opened the Door for Us to Know God

All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Thankfully, we have the sacrifice of Jesus Christ that paid for our sins. We need only to repent and submit to Him as Savior and Lord. We can then begin our new eternal life with Jesus as a new creation. 

Reminder #3: The Entire Bible is a Picture Book of Jesus

Just like the front of a puzzle box makes the individual pieces clear, Jesus brings the entire Bible together.

Jesus is the savior of humanity, just as the Ark was with Noah. Jesus is the Mediator of the New Covenant, as Moses was the mediator of the Old Covenant. These and so many more all point to Jesus.


In a culture of consumerism, we must work to keep Jesus at the center of everything we do, especially during this time of year. 

Jesus is the reason for the season and we should take great joy not in all the presents, but in the gift of Jesus’ presence.


Tech Censorship is Communism | What We Must Do Now

Tech censorship is communism. China Does it and we see it happening in the US. We have seen government working together with non-government entities to direct their censorship. 

This is exactly what happens in China. In an interview I did with Kay Rubacek, she tells all about the training that every single journalist in China goes through. She explained how they are taught what they can say and what they cannot say. They are all literally turned into the propaganda arm of the Chinese Communist Party, the CCP. 

We also have viewpoint discrimination, which is another issue all together. One could argue that since social media companies are private companies (not government entities), they can do what they want. To some degree that is true, however 

Another issue is the difference between platform and publisher. A platform is like a stage, where people can come to say what they want. But the stage has no liability for anything that is said, whether it was true, not true, slander or any other issues that come with public speech. This is how social media platforms are supposed to be operating. But instead, we see them operating as publishers.

A publisher has editorial control over the content, like a newspaper, book publisher, magazine, news website, and even podcasts like mine. Publishers choose what gets published and what doesn’t. They have editorial control and along with editorial control comes liability. 

Publishers are accountable for everything they publish. That means they can be taken to court to be held legally liable for any false claim, such as slander or libel. 

What we see happening today is that the social media companies, who are supposed to be platforms like a stage, are acting like publishers with editorial control. That means the freedom from liability should not exist. They are operating with the best of both worlds: liability protection of a platform and the editorial control of a publisher.

But how can this be? 

It is because of the blurred lines in Section 230 of the Communications Act. It is utterly absurd and must be corrected.

Lawmakers continue to stand by while the issue goes on unaddressed. It is not a complicated issue. It is quite simple. Are they a publisher or a platform?

They are clearly acting like publishers, when they talk about censoring speech, especially on behalf of government. When they talk about stopping misinformation, it is no different than the Chinese Communist Party doing the same. 

But even if a social media company acts on their own to censor speech, without government influence, they are still acting as an publisher, with editorial control. Which means they should be held legally liable for any missteps. 

That means if someone is de-platformed because of supposed mis-information they shared, but the information was later found to be correct, that individual could bring a lawsuit against the social media company for lost earnings, reputation damage, and so on. 

One approach that would future proof any new platforms and developments is a Digital Bill of Rights. That would include critical issues today like speech and privacy. Although laws are starting to form, there are massive gaps in the law today that allow companies to exploit people’s private information without their expressed consent. 

Today social media companies can remove people, posts and videos simply because they don’t like what they have to say. Twitter removed President Donald Trump while terrorist groups like ISIS continue to have accounts. How insane.

The right legal environment would allow citizens to bring legal action against social media companies who wrongfully de-platformed or de-monetized them.

Today many make their living through monetization via social media platforms. Of course, social media platforms make money when people use their platform. And when influencers bring big followings, it means even more money for the platform. 

The time has come. The gig is up. The one-sided legal setup must go. 

Platforms must either operate as a platform or be recategorized as publishers and bare the legal consequences.

(00:43): Episode

Welcome to another episode. We are getting into some current events and some hot topics on this episode and the title. It says everything, you know, we want, we need to stand up against this wild leftism before it’s too late. And I want to talk a little bit about kind of what’s going on. And just a few high-level things. Here are some themes of what we’ve been seeing. And fortunately, some of the activity we are seeing from parents and community members who have just simply had enough, they’ve had enough and it’s time to step up. So if the last year and a half has shown us anything, it has taught us that it really matters who we elect as our leaders and politics and government have really taken center stage in every sphere of society all over the place. And we see how much the media can control the narrative.


And we sort of see a crisis of critical thinking is what I call it in America today at least, but also globally. And, you know, we see free speech under attack. We see leftist policies advancing everywhere. We look and as I said, many are finally waking up. You know, we’ve seen what it looks like to have great leadership and poor leadership and big tech is, has been given far too much power and too much control. We’ve seen canceled coal, cancel culture, thriving. We’ve seen, we even saw censorship of the president of the United States when Donald Trump was in office. Think about that for a minute. That is the wildest thing. I mean, censoring the president of the leader of the free world, the number one most powerful person on earth at the time for the president of the United States. That is just dumbfounding.


I mean, it’s, it’s it’s kinda makes you speechless, but it happened and for not very good reasons, actually not good reasons at all. Sort of incoherent reasons is what we heard, but the way he was treated way, Donald Trump has been treated should shock everybody, including those who oppose him. You know, it goes without saying, I believe that you know, those who stand against Trump, if they saw the behavior of people toward someone that they did support, like the tech silencing and slandering and that sort of treatment, there is no way they would be okay with that the way they are okay with it with Donald Trump. And many of these people, you know, you see these TV shows where they go and they talk and ask people and they can’t say anything beyond the headline. They just get into the deep, they can’t get into any details of why Trump’s racist or why it’s a problem or any of that.


Well, we also see, we have seen so much hypocrisy with politicians and regulators, not even following their own advice, which just shows the lack of conviction or the insincerity was just, is just absurd to me where they have rules for the, but not for me, for example California, governor Gavin Newsome, make it, all these orders that you can’t be in restaurants and all this. And then what happens. He’s caught eaten with a group of people, a larger group of people, and then California, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, the leader of the house right now. Doesn’t, you know, shuts down all the businesses and can’t go get your hair cut. And what does she do? She goes to a salon and gets her hair, did hair done just amazing. And then you got the Texas house Democrats where they flew on a plane together, talking about it.


You got any masks and you got all this stuff and then they fly and they have a picture with no mass sun. That’s just incredible. Well, we also see the politicization of science with policies and guidance that are ever-changing even contradicting. You know, we have a massive lack of evidence-based justification for a lot of what’s happening right now. It is just absurd, the type of direction we’re being given and how it’s always changing. And this Dr. Fowchee, he consistently changes his guidance with no explanations for things that are clearly conflicting with former guidance. For example masks are not effective. And then he’s now he says, you need to wear masks. You need to wear two masks. You need to wear a mask. If you’re older than two years old or in three, or if you’re under 12, you need to this, that this, that, and there’s zero studies that they reference for any of this.


And I say, blitz possession of science. And it’s kind of junk science because it’s not really based on the scientific method. I mean, we see, I say junk science says trust me, but real science says, test me, you know, we, we should be able to challenge it and say, well, how did you come to that conclusion? And not just have somebody say, well, you denying science, you’re denying science, but no science, literally the entire purpose is I have a theory and now you’ve got to try and disprove that theory. That is the scientific method that’s of what is in science. That’s what we, what we do in science. And, you know, moving on it’s it’s even, even this leftism is in our culture is moving into the church, the Christian Church. So many leaders of these big churches in these national leaders are, are going along with this, even against their own probably their own convictions.


They’re going against it, just because it’s that the culture is going and it’s sneaking in. And that’s, well, a lot of the, even the, the Christian academics today, the Christian universities are, are going left. I mean, there’s all kinds of stuff. There’s a documentary coming out called enemies within the church go to their website, enemies within the church.com it’s already they already have lots of interviews for things that are happening there. And we mentioned cancel culture. You know, Steve Strang has a book coming out God and cancel culture, and you can get that at online, but it’s coming out talking about the craziness of all this that’s happening. And, you know, we’ve seen you know, after elections people, you know, generally don’t really see much change to their daily life. I mean, in general, after elections, but here lately, we’ve seen lots of change. We’ve see the consequences of who we elect and the power they have. And maybe even more accurate to say the power that they’ve taken and it’s beyond what they are really allowed. You know, the constitution doesn’t restrict citizens, the constitution restricts government. What they can do the government’s job is to promote good and punish evil, get rid of evil, promote good. That’s the government’s job in general as promoting good and, you know, getting rid of evil, protecting its citizens. That’s a part of it and all these things. So you know what though the time is now, you know, if we don’t stand up and stop this leftist push in every sphere of society there, it’s going to destroy the nation. It won’t be unrecognized.


It will be unrecognizable. We won’t recognize America. We won’t have individual freedom, free speech, limited government fiscal responsibility, which is kind of already bye-bye. We won’t have critical thinking. We won’t have the rule of law, religious freedom, traditional families, all of thing of the past. And if we don’t stand up, but fortunately people are standing up. That’s the good news. People are standing up and taking action and fighting back because they’re seeing, you know, these agendas are nothing new. They’ve been here all along. And they’re finally coming to the surface where we can clearly see what they are. They’re no longer hidden. And once you see it, you can’t unsee it. It’s everywhere. This left’s agenda. And it’s just about this kind of controlling things. And, you know, it’s removing freedoms, it’s giving more government control. It’s not what America was founded on and it’s not what America needs.


And in fact, when you work those things out to their logical end, that’s socialism to Marxism and communism, that’s government control of the means of production, no private ownership, no. I mean, just look at the next step in everything we’re doing, pay people to stay home, you know, make it difficult for companies to hire people. You know, all of these things I’m bringing up, we could do endless episodes on, and we will be getting into a lot of details on that, on this show on this podcast. But, you know, we see the attacks coming in the culture, we see fake news. We see these social justice, activists, organizations, and even legislation and regulation, all of these things coming up, but we are seeing parents stand up against it. We are seeing you know, as these true agendas come out, even in education and they’re exposed for example they are indoctrinating our students with this leftist ideology, CRT or critical race theory, which is a part of the bigger, critical theory, which is just a racist theory that just literally is based on skin, color and segregation.


And it’s just a very it’s a horrible, horrible theory. It just teaches racism literally and confuses origins of, and our history. And it’s just absurd. We also have gender confusion. That’s being put into our schools and taught in these public schools and you know, all of this is it being done instead of just providing an education, strengthened their ability to learn and think critically. And this has been happening for a long time. And now it’s just becoming more, obviously agregious and that’s what’s happening. And finally, we have people standing up saying, this is unacceptable. This doesn’t make any sense. And this government overreach is becoming more and more clear by the day. And well at the forefront of that agenda is election fraud. We haven’t even talked about that yet, but this whole thing, we have this symposium for Michael and Dell, all kinds of just irrefutable evidence, this data, and it’s just irrefutable what’s happened.


So lots of more to come on that. So, but what about you? I mean, but what can we do about this? What can you do? I mean, what should you do? What must you do? Well, we need to use our voice. You can use your voice to take a stand. You know, the Bible says, we need to understand the times like the men have this a car and they understood the times and they knew what they should do, and that’s where we need to be. So I gave you a very high 30,000 foot overview of what’s going on. All of this stuff is traceable directly back to, you know, unbiblical, it’s unbiblical, governing unbiblical you know, these things in culture and all this stuff. And we, the church are called to stand up, to speak up. And especially those of us who are spirit filled are to be the voice of God here on earth.


And we stand up and we do the things and that’s all over the Bible. Look at Daniel, look at Joseph, look at all these, look at John the Baptist. Look at Paul. All these people were persecuted well because they did what was right and Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, same thing. But everyone should be interested in politics today. You know, everyone who was not paying attention, all of a sudden now should have an interest because they can now see the direct impact that political leadership has on their lives. And, you know, but we can make a difference. You can make a difference with even just a little effort. You can learn more about the what’s going on in your local area,


The education curriculum you can go to the school board meetings. You can go and take a stand there, say what you think you can contact your political representatives. You can get a group of people to come together. Other parents in your neighborhood. You can even pull your kids out of school and come up with another option there with homeschooling that’s, that’s just growing. We could do another episode on that too. That’s growing template or put them in private school. Other things like that. You can help real conservatives get elected and people who really will stand for what matters. And not just what’s politically convenient. You can take a stand for your real beliefs. You can talk to your fellow church members and your church leadership. If you see any of it going on, any of this leftist stuff, creeping in, talk about it, but you can do it in a respectful way.


You know, that we just, what we see online. And then people want to shout you down or shot people down. And that doesn’t mean our, our personal relationships have to be like that. That doesn’t mean that’s how we engage. You know, there’s a biblical way to do this. But there’s a righteous anger, and we got to stand up because the church has been silent too long. And, you know, w w we need to be challenging the thinking of others and asking why it’s this Socratic reasoning. Well, how did you come to that conclusion? Why do you think that, why do you think this? And that’s kind of exposing the shallow level of critical thinking. And now that’s not the case for everybody, but many, many it is, and we can go a little deeper and challenge challenged them to do that. So that’s just a few things that we can do to make a difference that you can do to take, take a stand and, and help play a part in getting our culture and our government back on track. So lots more to come, lots more to talk about, but that’s just a nice primer to get us started. We need to take action before it’s too late to stand up against leftism. So what is it that you will do?

Stand Up Against Leftism Before it’s Too Late

If the last year-and-a-half has taught us anything, it has taught us that it matters who we elect as leaders. It seems that politics and government have taken centerstage in every sphere of society.

Free speech is under attack and Leftist policies are advancing every where we look. Many are finally waking up to the reality of what has been happening behind closed doors.

We have seen the importance of having strong leadership and we have seen the devastating effects of poor leadership. We have seen the value of leaders with good and righteous motives and the destruction caused by leaders with self-centered, corrupt and greedy motives.

Big Tech has been given far too much power and control. It has allowed cancel culture to thrive, including censorship of the President of the United States of America.

The way Donald Trump has been treated should shock everyone, including those who oppose him. It goes without saying that those against standing Trump would never accept the same tech silencing and slandering treatment of someone they supported.

We have seen rabid hypocrisy that has been put on display from politicians like California Governor, Gavin Newson, California Congresswoman, Nanci Pelosi, and Texas House Democrats.

We have seen the politicization of ‘science’ with policies and guidance that are ever-changing, even contradicting and have a massive lack of evidence-based justification. Leaders like Dr. Fauci consistently changing their guidance with no explanation for clear conflicts with former guidance.

Sadly, the rampant Leftism in our culture today is even making its way into the Christian church.

Following typical elections, most people rarely notice a change to their daily lives. But everyone can now seen the consequences of who we elect and the power they have. Or perhaps more accurately, the power they have taken.

The time is now

If we don’t stand up and stop the Leftist push against every sphere of our society, we will be left with a destroyed nation that is unrecognizable. An America where individual freedom, free speech, limited government, fiscal responsibility, critical thinking, the rule of law, religious freedom and traditional families will be a thing of the past.

These are all explicit targets of the Left. The attacks are coming in the culture, in fake news, in social justice activist organizations, and even in legislation and regulation.

What’s next?

The good news is that many are standing up. They are taking action and fighting back. They are taking a stand for what is right and true.

The true agendas like those in education are being exposed. It has become clear that schools have prioritized indoctrinating students with leftest ideology, like CRT or gender confusion, rather than simply providing an education and strengthening their ability to learn and think critically.

Government overreach is becoming more and more clear by the day. And at the forefront of the agendas coming to light is election fraud.

What about you?

But what can you do? What should you do? What must you do?

We must use our voice. We must take a stand. We must understand the times we are in. We must get involved.

Everyone should be interested in politics today. Everyone who was not paying attention suddenly should have an interest because they can now see the direct impact that political leadership has on their lives.

A difference can be made with even a little effort. Learning more about local education curriculum. Going to a local school board meeting and taking a stand. Contacting your political representatives. Helping REAL conservatives get elected. Standing up for your real beliefs. Talking to fellow church members and leadership. Asking question that challenge the thinking of others. And searching for the truth beyond the headlines.

These are just a few of the ways that we can make a difference. We need to stand up and take action. The time to act is now.

What part will you play in helping get our culture and government back on track?
