What’s the value of a human being’s life? How about our freedom? It’s time to seriously think about these questions because they are increasingly under threat.

A recent interview with the son of a pastor in Canada is a case in point. His father has been convicted of a crime because he spiritually supported the protesting truckers during the Covid plandemic.

For those who think this is just a Canadian issue, keep in mind that this Polish family moved to Canada because the country proudly claimed to support freedom of religion – in all its forms. It’s a very informative interview and a wake-up call for everyone. As we learned during Covid, tyranny can spread. 

Another growing threat to our freedoms comes under the guise of “global warming” – now coined “global boiling.” Climate alarmists must keep it exciting and scary so people will constantly be afraid. That makes it much easier for them to get us all to comply with new policies, laws and mandates. These are the same tactics that were used during Covid. It’s happening again. 

With regards to human life, we know that humanity cannot exist unless women go through pregnancy. 

As abortions continue year after year, Christians and others who treasure life continue to protest abortion mills. They work tirelessly to reach out to these mothers before they step inside an abortion clinic and destroy their beautiful son or daughter.

But that’s changing too.

Tens of thousands of these women are now ordering – legally or illegally – online abortion pills. There’s little regard for the mother’s age or their child’s development. No one seems to care about the risks as mothers find ways to get these pills and murder their children in their own homes without ever stepping anywhere near an abortion mill.

How on earth do we save these families now? All I can think of is to flood them with education about how precious their child is. But honestly, most of these mothers will kill their babies before anybody ever knows they were even pregnant. 

The Bible says Satan has come to “steal, kill and destroy.” He has and continues to do so.

Fear also plays a role in fewer women choosing to have children. I recently had a good talk with two young women about the economy. We discussed why this generation isn’t having children. These women were intelligent and had done their research. They shared many concerns about inflation, the high cost of housing, rising interest rates, daycare costs, the lack of committed family men and the uncertainty of the future. They explained their perspectives in great detail.

We are in a very challenging era of human history, and we must ask why God chose for us to live in this specific time and place.

He has a plan for each one of us to carry out his will. I pray that each Christian searches out their specific role, especially as the world’s problems continue to increase. If we ask for direction, he will guide us to our personal task.

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    Abortion, is killing a human being.

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Trust leaders like dunleavy

  • Jen says:

    It’s okay to have a baby even if the crowd thinks the mother and father are too poor, too busy, or have too many other children. It’s okay to remain single and be a couple without children. You know that Elvis Presley song ‘in the ghetto’ been better if he never published because of his extreme popularity, and the way people tend fixate on the negatives instead of the one line ‘what that child (including the mother) needs is helping hand or a close community of other women and men to look after and mentor that younger single mother or even a an older married woman whose husband is reluctant to have another baby cause they almost already raised their four children now at she at 45 and he at 51 are expecting their fifth) . Those kind of messages as that song would make moms and dads look at their situation like they feel too poor to raise a baby rather than the possibilities a baby brings both of the family and the community. Since the ‘in the ghetto’ release people response had been let families alone, let the single mom cry alone, let the boy grow up into an angry young man, let the girl grow up looking for love in all the wrong places, let the widow family suffer instead of searching the scripture how we can serve and encourage them better like Titus 2:3 instructed older women to instruct the younger women. Above all teaching one another how to sing praise and thank God even while we facing our trials and struggles.

    Faith not Fourth

  • Lucinda says:

    Samash. You use the scientific method for 99% of your daily decisions, yet when there is an issue you don’t like, you go all supernatural. I’ve never understood how a mind can hold two opposing operational systems. The evidence for global warming is overwhelming. Scientific data. Historical data. But the concept irks you for some reason so you invoke the supernatural: “ He has a plan for each one of us to carry out his will.” Or maybe you don’t accept global warming because the warnings come from highly educated policy makers, researchers and universities. It’s been my observation that religionists tend also to be anti-intellectual because evidence provides an insurmountable barrier to faith.

    You’re pro-life, at least until birth. Those lovely newborns will inherit a failing global ecosystem.

    Faith or evidence. It can’t be both.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Fortunately, those lovely newborns are going to inherit a Golden Age system with no evil. They will learn about the true God that created all creation, they will learn the truths about their history and they will learn all about the evil that was defeated (your group) and how they need to stay on their toes to make sure that it never happens again. It is going to be a wonderful future for the children of God Almighty!

    • Lobo says:

      Geophysical data from the Earth’s platelet layers, and ice core sample examinations by Geologists,, and scientists disagree with your ideologies concerning the fraudulent “climate alarmist” claims ( lies). Consider that at one time, Alaska was warm enough to support the life forms of what we call, dinosaurs, and similar creatures.. Why is that relevant to the subject ? The lands up here were warm enough, year round, to support them with crucial vegetation, due to the “warm” climate cycles… What happened to the dinosaurs ?? The little “Ice age” came in, and they didn’t migrate Southward soon enough to survive… You won’t find this information amongst the “Global Warming” idiot’s data bases, but, if you really want to educate yourself, that information, along with other geological scientific studies are easily discoverable for anyone with a honest desire for the truth. The Earth has been MUCH warmer in the past centuries.. According to the studies of scientists, and Geologists…Of course, to the “Global Warming” Lemmings, it’s. . “What ever or masters say… We will follow you over the cliff”… “We are ovewhelmed”

      • Lobo says:

        BTW, the physical remains of the prehistoric creatures mentioned are found embedded in the substrata layers, and testify to the much warmer eras of the past.

    • B says:

      Lucinda the narcissist.

  • Lucinda says:

    Dinosaurs lived between 225 and 65 million years ago. The Little Ice Age occurred in Alaska 500-100 years ago. The rest of your geologic expertise is suspect. Also the earth doesn’t have platelets, but blood does.

    • Lobo says:

      The “Platelets” are referred to as “Tectonic Plates”, and the smaller fragments thereof, are “my definition” of “platelets”.. The Tectonic plates shift over time, and we have Earthquakes, and the building of mountains, and other geophysical forms.. The little ice age wasn’t the only ice age which occurred in Alaska, and the point that you seem to miss is; the Earth has been much warmer than anything we have seen, which debunks the “global warming” scams.. The Dinosaurs mentioned, lived during the “warmer – hot” eras, and died off in this region (ALASKA) because of that ice age, which disrupted their food sources.. This is one of the conclusions reached by the teams exploring the subject… Their remains have been found here, and continue to be unearthed.. As for my “geologic expertise”, I claim no such expertise, rather, I have researched the subject over the last several years, and seen the graphs developed by the Geologists, geophysicists, and other scientists… The same as did you, when looking up the eras of the dinosaur’s living here. . That data, which uses radiometric dating methods, however, has been, and is now, being reexamined… The dating of rocks is impossible, and the Carbon-14 dating process is now showing major errors in dating the remains of the past.. In other words, the past “assumptions” of millions of years is being shown to be inaccurate… It’s not a simple measurement of the C-12, C-14, and other carbons found in the remains, as has been used as the standards in the past.

      • Lucinda says:

        Lobo. Are you a Young Earth Creationist?

      • Lobo says:

        Lucinda “LOL”, no.. I actually do my research.. Try it sometime, and enlighten yourself . “Faith, not fourth” ??? Put the fifth down.

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    Read the Bible it will tell you, how old the earth is.
    Yes God created those dinosaurs also.

  • jon says:

    I will defend the lives of pregnant women everywhere. They are the ones who should have rights over their body, including an unborn fetus.

  • ML, just common sense says:

    The article made some valid points, and yes there is a lot of things not right with the world. I do not believe in the murder of children, and I really fail to see why this issue of unwanted pregnancies continues with all the available contraceptives. There is one person holding all the cards in this matter, if she fails to ensure the issue, then as they used to say, “you made your bed now sleep in it”. No abortions. Am I concerned that we as a country are not having babies, no. As the population of this planet continues to over populate, our planet’s resources dwindle. We build housing on what was once good farmland, and our water supply dwindles yearly. Not because of global warming, as that is a natural occurrence, but because this planet is becoming a very crowded place. But yes, it was a good article.

  • Lucinda says:

    Lobo. The key point you haven’t addressed here is the rate of climate change during transition periods then and now. Typically the climate temperature changes gradually over millions of years. Today that period of transition is in the hundreds of years. There is not enough time for life forms to adapt to warming temperatures.

    You’re confusing the the radiometric analysis of C 14 and potassium argon. C14 dates aren’t reliable older than around 50,000 years, it’s great for archaeological specimens that contain plant and animal components. Potassium Argon dating is reliable for the oldest rocks (4billion) on up to around one million years old.

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    6 to 10 thousand years old.
