Feminists Abort Unborn Jesus; Christ in the Desert...more

Feminists Abort Unborn Jesus ...The events took place in Tucuman, a northern province in Argentina, where thousands rallied in favor of equal pay for women and against femicide. In Argentina during 2016, a woman was murdered by her male partner every 30 hours, so it’s not as if there weren’t reasons for the protest.

Yet as has happened in many other countries, a rally that was once about equality between women and men has also become for most of those participating a rally in favor of abortion, a practice that is forbidden in Argentina unless the life of the mother is threatened by pregnancy.

Hence, in what is being described as “an artistic representation” by some, a group of women pretended to do an abortion on a woman dressed like a very pregnant Virgin Mary in front of a Catholic cathedral in a clearly provocative gesture.

The gruesome images, which include what looks like blood and baby parts coming out from under the woman’s dress, were shared thousands of times on Facebook...

IRS expedited tax-exempt status for Satanists A Satanic group that sponsored a “After School Satan Club” received expedited approval from the IRS to operate as a tax-exempt entity. Calling itself “Reason Alliance” and based in Somerville, Massachusetts, the group operates in Washington State as the Satanic Temple of Seattle.

According to Judicial Watch, Reason Alliance sought to establish Satanic organizations on public school campuses in the state of Washington where Christians had created student groups. Judicial Watch found documents that showed that the group was in the process of creating a Satan club at Point Defiance Elementary School in Tacoma WA.

Treasury Department documents show that once the Satanic cult applied for tax exemption on October 21, 2014, it received tax exempt status on October 31, 2014. Lilith X. Starr, the director of the Satanic group’s temple in Washington, established the Point Defiance Elementary Satanic with the purpose of fomenting “character development,” according to records obtained by Judicial Watch. In addition, instructors are vetted by the Satanic Temple’s “Executive Ministry.”...

Why I Love the Psalms ...Several features of the Psalms have been especially attractive to me. The first is the beauty of the language and the poetic expression of the great truths of the faith. Consider the simple words, “The Lord is my shepherd” (Ps. 23:1). How much comfort they have brought to many, many souls in distress. Or think of the promises of God’s redemption in Psalm 103: “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s” (vv. 2–5). Or ponder the poignant picture of God’s remembrance of our suffering: “Put thou my tears into thy bottle” (Ps. 56:8 KJV...

Christ in the Desert
...Lent, at its best, is a discovery that Christ is already next to us. We silence our distractions to discover the Lord’s love, his steadfast presence, the transforming power of the Holy Spirit...
