Ruling Elder in the conservative Presbyterian Church in America Believes in Pre-Born Baby Murder

Published

The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) is the second largest Presbyterian denomination of the United States of America. It is supposed to be the largest conservative Presbyterian and/or Reformed body in the country with a focus on what the Scriptures of the Holy Bible says and commands. In fact, the PCA came into existence because of the progressivism that the Presbyterian Church in the United States was embracing back in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s.

The corruption did its damage in the PCUS and the true Bible believers could no longer stay in the PCUS, so enter the PCA. In 1983 the PCUS would merge with the United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America (UPCUSA) becoming the Presbyterian Church (USA), and with the merger progressive thought continued to move forward in spite of a recent split in 2012 which created ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians. For the record the UPCUSA dealt with their own split in 1981 prior to their merger with PCUS. That split created the Evangelical Presbyterian Church or EPC which still exists to this day.

Now that I have given a quick history lesson on the PCA and the other major Presbyterian dominations, we need to focus on one PCA church leader, his run for the governorship of Texas, his pro-abortion baby murder stance, and the need for the PCA truly push back if not run the man out of the church body should it come to that.

This PCA leader is an elder at Christ the King Presbyterian Church in Houston, Texas. His name is Andrew White and his family is no stranger to politics. His late father Mark White was governor of Texas for a single term from 1983 till 1987. He failed to win a second term in which Bill Clements was able to win back the governorship which he lost to Mark in 1982. Clements decided to retire after that second nonconsecutive term. Both father and son were and are committed to the Democratic party, and while we have to be careful about mixing political parties with the faith of Christian church (i.e. PCA or any other Bible believing church body does not equal Republican party nor Democratic party), there are certain things that those who call themselves Christians should be holding up; in spite of the arguments of church-state separation.

As I stated in a previous piece and based on the history of the founders of Freedom From Religion Foundation I feel the real purpose of FFRF is to cleanse the culture of the Christian faith because it will make it easier for the Pro Abortion/Baby Murder cause to advance with little resistance.

Secularists might praise the likes of Andrew White who will separate themselves from their faith more/less. White claims to be a “common sense conservative” Democrat but when it comes to abortion/murder of the preborn, he said in an interview with Texas Public Radio’s KSTX in San Antonio. “I support Roe v. Wade 100 percent. It’s the law of the land. We just celebrated the 45-year anniversary of that…I’ll go one step further and say that when I’m governor, I will veto any of this legislation coming out that limits a woman’s right to choose.”

I would personally would disagree with him on his support of Medicaid expansion and what the role of government in our lives should be. I would find the term conservative Democrat very misleading not just on abortion but in many other areas. I find him to be another shill and cog in the Democrat party machine based on the way he talks in the KSTX interview. Looking at a piece on White in the Houston Chronicle he seems to have no problem with same sex marriage and the LGBTQ agenda being taught to children, not to mention that he does not care about keeping transgenders out of the restrooms based on the gender they were naturally born into. This tells me that White is a very dangerous person and actually would hinder the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a Christian while advancing a more pagan culture that will only cause more damage to our society.

Should we uphold slavery if that is the law of the land, and should Christians in political office just say, well the Bible says its wrong but hey it’s the law of the land. No, you try to fight to change that someway and somehow. Our elected officials, judges and bureaucrats can get things wrong and usually they do. The same should go for abortion and contrary to White’s convictions and his live and let live mentality, more government funding in sex education is not going to reduce the need for abortion. Planned Parenthood’s bread and butter is pre-born baby murder…pure and simple, and their sex education propaganda will also encourage young people to engage in sexual activity in hopes that they can get many abortions out of them. The only way to curb abortion/pre-born baby murder is to grant personhood to the unborn child and make abortion a crime once more with severe penalties for those who attempt preborn baby murder.

Proverbs 24:11-12 commands God’s people (Jews and Christians alike) to rescue those who are being taken away to death. Exodus 23:7, Deuteronomy 27:25 and Proverbs 17:15 makes it quite clear that God forbids the killing of innocent people.

Thank goodness for pastor Todd Pruitt of Covenant Presbyterian Church in Harrisonburg, Virginia; and his open letter to Andrew White and pointing key Scriptures about how the human race especially those in the womb of the mother are created in the image of God. Psalm 17:14 and 139:13-16; Isaiah 44:2; Jeremiah 1:5; and Luke 1:41-45. Looking at church history in which they actually stepped in to save babies who were abandoned and left to die, and even the reminder of upholding the sixth commandment of God to “not murder” as pointed out in the Westminster Larger Catechism.

To top it off, Pruitt reminds White of the 1978 ad interim committee on abortion which makes it clear that the PCA is opposed to abortion all the way. To date since Roe vs. Wade over 60 million preborn were killed by abortion and that is a much greater statistic than the six million killed by Nazi Germany.

Pastor Pruitt must do more than just pray. He needs to call upon Christ the King Presbyterian Church and see to it that White repents and actually uphold God’s commands not to murder the innocent and also rescue them from unnecessary death. Forget about what the Democrats support (or even what President Donald Trump and the Republicans support), but rather what God supports when it comes to life and death issues and even marriage. If White does not repent, then his local church MUST excommunicate him. If White’s church fails at any of this, then the greater PCA church body must step in and bring Christ the King Presbyterian Church to account and if necessary disfellowship the church. It will be churches like White’s that will only corrupt the PCA and cause yet another denomination split in the much-fractured Presbyterian/Reformed churches in America.

Also remember these words of Jesus from his Sermon on the Mount; “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

“Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. -” Matthew 5:17, 19 ESV

Elizabeth Warren releases DNA proof that she’s at least 1/1024th Native American. Twitter responds appropriately.

Elizabeth Warren releases DNA proof that shes at least 11024th Native American Twitter responds appr

There’s a strategist in Senator Elizabeth Warren’s ear who thought it was a good idea to release results of a DNA test showing a likelihood that one of her very distant descendants was Native American. The advice taken. The results were predictable.

The test shows she is at most 1/32nd Native American if she is six generations from her Native American ancestor. That’s her best-case scenario. At worst, her ancestor was as far back as ten generations which would make her 1/1024th Native American. To put that into perspective, if she were to honor her heritage by engaging in 1/1024th of a four-hour Native American Sweat, she’d be in and out of the lodge in 14 seconds.

Elizabeth Warren releases results of DNA test on Native American ancesty

https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/politics/2018/10/15/warren-addresses-native-american-issue/YEUaGzsefB0gPBe2AbmSVO/story.htmlThe inherent imprecision of the six-page DNA analysis could provide fodder for Warren’s critics. If her great-great-great-grandmother was Native American, that puts her at 1/32nd American Indian. But the report includes the possibility that she’s just 1/1024th Native American if the ancestor is 10 generations back.

Undergoing the test and releasing the results reveal how seriously Warren is taking the attacks from Trump, who has been able to effectively caricature and diminish his national foes via nicknames and conspiracy theories. Trump pushed then President Barack Obama into releasing the long form of his birth certificate to prove what most knew was already true: He was born in America.

This publicity stunt was designed to let everyone know she’s serious about running for President in 2020. She wanted to be able to call out President Trump on his promise to give $1,000,000 to charity if she could prove Native American heritage. He won’t pay, of course, which will get plenty of headlines calling him a deal-breaking scoundrel, but was it really if for her to be the focus of even more jokes on social media?

Here are some of the reactions on Twitter. You decide:

Katherine Timpf on fighting political correctness

National Review reporter and Fox News contributor Katherine Timpf often discusses political correctness. She talks about it so often that one might think it’s a subject she enjoys, but in reality it’s simply a problem she passionately wants to solve.

In American society, it is way too easy to offend. People do not want to hear that their perspectives are wrong. That’s apparently some form of violence. They don’t want to hear an opposing viewpoint. That’s allegedly a form of oppression. Many on the left feel entitled to express their opinions in any way they see fit and also to prevent others from sharing their opinions if there’s a difference in worldviews.

The hypocrisy of political correctness is thick.

As Timpf recently pointed out on National Review, it’s a problem that doesn’t have an easy solution, but trends are pointing to positive movement against the specter of political correctness.

Political Correctness: Study Finds 80 Percent of Americans Think It’s a Problem

https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/10/political-correctness-problem-according-to-80-percent-of-people/I could go on for pages and pages, but you get the point: Writing about political correctness sometimes makes me feel as if everyone has gone mad, and I’m very glad to see that this doesn’t seem to be the case. Instead, a strong majority of people apparently agrees with me. A strong majority believes that political correctness has gone too far, and probably would agree that we need to be careful to protect our ability to speak freely in this country.

That’s certainly encouraging, but it still doesn’t make me feel entirely better. After all, the small, PC-obsessed mob can sometimes be very powerful. Once it decides that someone or something is racist or sexist, that conclusion can carry a lot of weight. It can ruin careers and lives. It can remove perfectly good, innocuous words from acceptable speech, because even the people who might not see a problem with those words don’t want to risk being accused of racism or sexism for using them. The only answer is to keep fighting, to keep exposing and mocking such overreach when it occurs — and to take solace in the fact that so many people have awoken to its dangers.

Keep fighting the good fight, Ms. Timpf.

Reason: Socialism fails every time

Reason Socialism fails every time

If Socialism Actually Worked, the Left wouldn’t have to Lie about it.

John Stossel has a new video featuring Gloria Álvarez who knows the truth about Socialism. She passionately decimates all of the Left’s lies about what is truly organised evil.

Socialism has become cool in America, under the nice name “democratic socialism”.

Gloria Álvarez knows better, because she’s from Latin America and studied socialism there. She says: watch out! Socialism has a clear track record of wrecking every country that implements it.

Cuba tried socialism. Things got so bad that tens of thousands fled the island on dangerous, makeshift rafts. Others paid lots of money to be allowed to leave.

After Cuba, the next Latin American country to get totally immersed in socialism was Venezuela. For a while, things seemed to work okay thanks to the country’s oil wealth; Venezuela has the largest proven oil reserves in the world, and used to be the richest country in Latin America.

Celebrities like Michael Moore and Sean Penn visited Hugo Chavez and praised his socialism.

Venezuelans were happy, too. A former mayor in Venezuela’s capital city told Álvarez: “People were clapping so hard. They were like, ‘Oh, finally there is somebody here making social justice.'”

But eventually socialism led to a mismanagement of the economy that was so bad that money started to run out. The government just printed more, so much more that it led to million-percent inflation.

But some still defend socialism, saying that what happened there “isn’t real socialism.” Bernie Sanders says: “when I talk about Socialism I am not looking at Venezuela, I’m not looking at Cuba. I’m looking at countries like Denmark, like Sweden.”

But Denmark’s prime minister says that’s a mistake: “Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy,” he clarified.

In Scandinavian countries, government regulates business less than America’s government does. Scandinavian countries don’t even have a minimum wage.

Real socialism looks more like Cuba and Venezuela.

Álvarez hopes people look at socialism’s track record before implementing it anywhere else.

If the stakes weren’t so deadly serious, the Left’s absurd contradictions on this subject would be quite amusing. The video had several celebrities trying to claim that normal government functions are somehow ‘socialism’, without explaining how this is the case. Other Leftists will claim that certain socialist regimes weren’t actually socialist, but were really ‘Right-Wing’, again without explaining how this is the case. However, those supposedly non-socialist, ‘Right-Wing’ regimes had normal government functions – road, liberties etc. So by the lights of the first contention, wouldn’t they be socialist?

But let us put this as succinctly as possible:

If Socialism Actually worked:

The Left wouldn’t have to falsely claim that normal government functions are ‘socialism’.
The Left wouldn’t have to Lie about the definition of the word.
The Left wouldn’t have to pretend that Scandinavian countries are socialist.
The Left wouldn’t have to lie, claiming that totalitarian Socialist regimes are supposedly ‘rightwing’.
If Socialism Actually worked, they wouldn’t need ‘revolutionary terror’.
If Socialism Actually worked, they wouldn’t need Tanquetas’ or ‘Ballenas’ to keep the people in line.
If Socialism Actually worked, they wouldn’t need secret police and torture to suppress dissent.
If Socialism Actually worked, they wouldn’t need barbed wire or mine fields to keep people from leaving.
If Socialism Actually worked, they wouldn’t need concentration camps, gulags or ‘re-education’ camps.
If Socialism Actually worked, they wouldn’t need firing squads or as ‘Che Guevara’ put it, the ‘pedagogy of the wall’.

The Takeaway.

If the organised evil that is socialism [Or it’s 40+ alternative labels] didn’t defy basic human nature, being a functional system, there would be no reason for the nation’s Socialist-Left to Lie about it. If it had actually accomplished something useful – aside from 100+ Million dead – it’s proponents could simply sell it without all of the falsehoods and outright lies. Those who advocate for that collectivist system – while claiming they aren’t it’s advocates – could simply be honest about what they want to impose on the rest of us.

Compare this to the entirely workable – but never claiming to be perfect – system of economic Liberty.
Those of us who are advocates for freedom have no need to pretend that systems of economic Liberty are something else. We have no need to make false claims or pretend it something that it is not. We only need to sell it on it’s great achievements, something the advocates of socialism can never do.
