When does life begin?
Contrary to popular thought, there are a growing number of people, who believe the scientific and biblical evidence that life begins at conception. The Bible clearly shows that life begins at conception. In Jeremiah 1:5, God speaks to Jeremiah saying, “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born, I set you apart and appointed you as my spokesman to the world.” In Psalms 139:13-16 David records his conversation with God. “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvellous- how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion... You saw me before I was born. Everyday of my life was recorded in your book.”
Not only does the Bible indicate that life begins at conception, but modern biologists and geneticists are agreeing with the Bible that life begins at conception. In 1981, April 23-24 a Senate Judiciary Subcommittee held hearings on ‘When does human life begin?” During that hearing, Dr. Hymie Gordon, Chairman of the Department of Genetics at the Mayo Clinic, said: “By all the criteria of modern molecular biology, life is present from the moment of conception.” Dr. McCarthy de Mere, a medical doctor and law professor at the University of Tennessee, testified:” The exact moment of the beginning of personhood and of the human body is at the moment of conception” Dr. Jerome Lejeune, known as “The Father of Modern Genetics,” testified before the Louisiana Legislature’s House Committee on the Administration of Criminal Justice on June 7, 1990, that human life begins at conception. Dr. Lejeune explained, “That within three to seven days after fertilization we can determine if the new human being is a boy or a girl. At no time is the human being a blob of protoplasm. As far as your nature is concerned, I see no difference between the early person that you were at conception and the late person which you are now. You were, and are, a human being.”
So if life begins at conception why are so many mothers ending their baby’s life with abortion? They are depriving their child of becoming the next Einstein, Billy Graham or Mother Terresa. What gives them that right? Deep down in their heart of hearts each mother knows that what they are doing to their child is wrong. The after effects of abortion show that this is true.
What about the mother?
There are strong negative emotions that occur in the mother just days after she has had an abortion. This response is known as Post-Abortion or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Many mothers need to be hospitalized as they can’t cope with the trauma of ending their own child’s life. Other complications often occur: sexual dysfunction, suicidal thoughts, suicidal attempts, alcohol or drug abuse, eating disorders, child neglect or abuse, divorce or chronic relationship problems, guilt, anger, anxiety, grief, etc. If you had an abortion or know someone who has, seek professional ministry from your church or pastor or a reputable Christian counselling service. Jesus wants to forgive the sin and heal the trauma in your life.
Canada, we need to repent!
Stats Canada have data from 2000 to 2004 stating that we have preformed over 100,000 abortions each year in Canada. That is over 1/2 million in just five years. At that rate over a million children are murdered every 10 years through abortion in Canada alone. As Canadians we need to stand in the gap and repent for this terrible act of selfishness and murder. Jesus commands in Matthew 5:21 “Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment.” 1 John 3:15 Whosoever hates his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life.” If we as Canadians don’t repent of our actions as individuals and as a nation we are in danger of the judgement of God on ourselves and on our land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Yes Life begins at conception. We as Christians and as Canadians need to protect the lives of our unborn or their blood is on our hands!

Walking The Narrow Gate.
"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14
They change the truth for lie
who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

Mothers, Abortion, and North America’s Future
As we approach Mother’s Day in the U.S. and Canada this year, I find myself thinking of my mother’s unselfish concern for my sister and me. It causes me to recall my family’s first winter in Alaska when I was a very small child.
We found ourselves stranded by bad weather in our cabin for several months, as our food supply dwindled dangerously low. Wild game was also scarce because of the weather. The situation became so serious that our provisions were nearly gone except for some smoked fish, raisins, popcorn, and a little flour. My mother ground the popcorn, mixing it with flour and water to make pancakes. readmore

A young lad by the name of Michael Duku was a student of unusual brilliance even in his earliest school days. He lived and went to school in war-torn Southern Sudan.
When the extremist Islamists from the north of Sudan invaded their own predominantly Christian south, they were on the look-out for youngsters whom they could set aside as promising young scholars and train them in special schools for the particularly gifted. Michael was one of those chosen, together with another young lad of his tribe.
As they were transported over two hundred miles, they were told they would be enrolled in a school for specialized training for future service to their country. Readmore
