Pre-Born Infants in Heaven

Written by Perry Stone- Voice of Evangalism, Cleveland, Tn.

Monday, 16 May 2016 

 FOR CENTURIES THERE has been theological debate about infants in paradise. Most acknowledge, once an infant enters the world through the birth process and breathes on its own, that if the child were to pass away, its soul and spirit would be taken into the heavenly paradise. This is borne out when Bathsheba was pregnant with David’s son. The child was born with a terrible affliction, which led David to engage in a seven-day vigil of prayer and fasting. On the seventh day the infant died. Under Divine inspiration, David said, “But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me” (2 Samuel 12:23).

What did David mean, “I will go to him?” The…

Abuse is among the most depraved and destructive behaviors of which human beings are capable.   Abuse actually warps victims’ reality, altering even the all too human tendency toward pride.

Pride

Known as one of the seven deadly sins [1], pride is a smug feeling of satisfaction at our own achievements – achievements made possible only by the blessings (talents, opportunities, etc.) bestowed on us by God.

Pride has special bearing, in a spiritual sense:

  • Secular humanists emphasize the value of human beings, apart from a deity.  According to this worldview, mankind is gradually advancing, through its own efforts.
  • Christians have a different viewpoint.  Believers see themselves as unworthy, but infinitely valued.  This derives not from their accomplishments, but their relationship to God.  Incapable of changing mankind’s sinful nature, believers are saved from sin by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross.

Unjust Fear?

My grass has been cut, the weed eating done, and a few weeds are sprayed with weed killer. My landscapers have left and joyfully I stand gazing at the chopped off root of a large shrub that would fill with bees and cause problems every time I went to the mailbox. The shrub is gone! Happily I think, now how can I make a little flower garden around that post? Anyone who knows me well knows I love to play in the dirt. My yard is a testimony of much labor, an injured back, and a depleted wallet but oh well, off to Home Depot I go.

I grab the cart and joyfully push it up and down the Garden Center isles of blooming plants, shrubs, and bags of dirt. I’m trying to decide exactly what will look nice in the small space and end up hefting curved cement landscape edger’s into the…

Grace Defined – Book Review

Posted on

JUST RELEASED

IMGP2601Greg Holt

Editor and Publisher – The Olive Branch Report

“Grace Defined” is a great and deeply moving story about the redeeming power of Christ. It is also the story of how those who love and are loved by Jesus share that love with others – and the tremendous and powerful effect that love has on them.

Sue Cass’s Grace Defined draws the reader in. It’s almost as if you were right there, a part of the story – not just reading it. The family and the story that surrounds them could literally jump off the pages of this book and into real life. The reader will get to know this family, from their intense heartache to emotional problems with the children; and the shared love, and support for one another. You will share in the family’s joy, love, and care for another – as well as their pain, tears, and abuse.

Grace Defined is a true to life intense and captivating story that I found hard to put down. A controlling and abusive husband; a dedicated and loving wife with some not so well-adjusted children – and the power of Christ to overcome and heal those willing to trust Him.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a real story, the good with the bad, success and failure. This is a great read.

The American College of Pediatricians has released an in-depth report stating that the move to indoctrinate children with the idea that they can pick their gender amounts to child abuse.  They are urging legislators and educators to reject all policies that would condition children to accept chemical and surgical distortions allowing people to impersonate the …

Rape Survivors Keep Quiet

Posted on

There should never be fear of reporting rape and yet schools, individuals, and even families hinder disclosure out of fear of what others may think or how they will reject us or blame us. This is just an example of how school policies can give a rapist criminal more power to rape and brutilize many others.

Negotiation – Bargaining with the Devil

Few people enjoy negotiation.  Most find it unpleasant, if necessary.  But, for abuse victims, negotiation can be immensely painful.

Why is this?  After all, most adults have been “bargaining” since they were children.  Just one more game.  Just one more story, Daddy.  Pleeze, Mommy, ple-e-e-eze.

Past Experience

Most people bargain with at least some expectation of obtaining what it is they are after.  That expectation is based on past experience, and a degree of prior success.  It pre-supposes an opponent can be persuaded to modify his/her position, perhaps even relent.

The experience of abuse victims is entirely different.  We were forced to bargain with the devil.

However else the abuser may have appeared to the world, however pleasant or sincere s/he may have seemed, however refined, relative to us s/he was evil incarnate:

  • unscrupulous;
  • manipulative;
  • single-minded;
  • more mature, intellectually;
  • erratic and confusing, with…
