Christian Dating

Our church family has a growing number of single young adults, or those about to enter that status. We also have a few single parents. They are all precious to me as their Pastor. I have watched most of them grow up. Many of them were literally children when I came here 12 years ago. And now they're graduating high school, or going off to college, or entering the full-time workforce. I realize every Pastor is biased, but I really think our young adults are exceptional. And I mean that in the way that matters most - spiritually. Our young adults, by and large, have been raised in homes where Dad and Mom saturated them in the gospel. Led them in regular family worship. Prayed for them, with them, and over them. Read the Bible to them and with them, and taught them to read the Word of God for themselves. These young adults were disciplined biblically as children, and equipped by parents and pastors serving alongside each other for the glory of Jesus in the lives of children and young adults. All glory to God!

A Pro-Life Awakening

If the last 18 months have shown us anything in regards to the so-called pro-life movement, it is that it was only mostly pro-life. The Supreme Court's decision to strike down Roe has flayed and fractured the Pro-Life Army. We now pitch our tents in various camps:

  • Camp Heartbeat - We should outlaw abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.
  • Camp Gestation - We should outlaw abortion after certain gestational phases, such as 12-13 weeks.
  • Camp Exception - We should outlaw abortion except in cases of rape, incest or the life of the mother.
  • Camp Compromise - We should find a middle ground to unite and/or appease both political parties so we can stop bickering about abortion.
  • Camp Personhood - We should legally declare the unborn a person, thus granting him or her all the legal protections afforded under our Constitution, including the right to life.
  • Camp Abolition - We should abolish abortion and prosecute any and all found guilty in a court of law of being intentionally involved in an abortion.
