Wisconsin Pro-Life Speaking Engagements

The next two weekends I’ll be speaking on opposite sides of Wisconsin. Both events are open to the public.

On Sunday, Jan 23rd I will be speaking at New Hope Lutheran Church in Neenah, Wisconsin. Neenah is very close to Appleton. I will be speaking at their ‘Common Ground‘ session, 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. This is also the common date for ‘Life Sunday’ around the country.

On Sunday, Jan 30th, I will be at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Sparta, Wisconsin. This is a march and youth rally that begins at 12 noon and goes to 5:30 p.m. I think I speak at 2 p.m.. I’ll update this when I know for sure.

If you are interested in attending the whole event, I have pasted the schedule below.

If you are interested in having me present with your organization, learn more here.

Atheism and the Problem of Death

As I argued above, all the religions and most of the world’s people deal honestly and seriously with the problem of death, but I should like to point out something truly unique about Christianity: it believes that at a specific place at a particular time in our history, God himself- knowing perfectly well what an offense death was- dealt death itself a death blow. He came to earth in a real place at a real time and interacted with real people that we can know from real history and really died and really rose from the dead and really promised to share that victory with anyone who will really accept the medicine he really offers.

In my view, since death is the common denominator for all of us and the one thing that stands in our way of ultimate and meaningful happiness, it is a proper subject of intensive human scrutiny. If there were hope, real hope, that there is an ultimate answer to death, then it is worth doing everything in your power to find out, and if one finds that hope to be more than plausible, but actual, seize upon it.

Apologetics is the Answer to Abortion and Euthanasia and other Life Issues

Apologetics ministries tend to focus on issues such as God’s existence or the fact of the resurrection or the Bible’s reliability. These are all very important. Indeed, they bear directly on the issues at hand- for if there is no God, it obviously follows that we cannot be made by him in his image. Further, Jesus suffering, death, and resurrection on behalf of a fallen human race is an emphatic testament to how much God himself values each human life. Dispense with these, and there are ripples down the line.

There, however, is where I wish to make the point: there are ripples down the line.

Somewhere I read once that in the 1700s they went after God. In the 1800s, they went after Jesus. In the 1900s, they went after Man. The sequence is logical, rational, and predictable. One would like to think that they can dispense with God without there being practical effect, but the 1900s have shown otherwise.

Family Values: Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

A friend posted a pretty interesting essay today on family values I submit for your reading.   I liked it and don’t have much objection to it.   After detailing the prominence and priority of ‘family values’ at communicating Life he makes this statement: Luther summed it up succinctly: love and serve God; it falls to the […]

History of the Culture of Death

Pro-life speaker Anthony Horvath recounts the history of the ‘Culture of Death’ from Thomas Malthus to Charles Darwin to Margaret Sanger to Peter Singer, with an array of personalities in between. Horvath shows why population control proposals permeate the ‘Progressive’ movement for the last 200 years and why, and how, it must be countered today. This presentation was delivered Nov. 20th, 2010, at Concordia University in Seward Nebraska for a Nebraska Lutherans for Life organization.

A couple of books to review

I received in the mail today two books to review… reminding me I’ve got a review or two yet to write! Argh!

To whet your appetite, let me say that both of these books appear to be solid and their respective websites look worthy of your investigation.

The first book is Rational Conclusions by James D. Agresti. This appears to be a thorough and cumulative apologetic for Christianity drawn from multiple disciplines. His website is www.justfacts.com. Find the book on Amazon, here.

The next book, by Dr. Edgar Andrews, is called Who Made God: Searching for a Theory of Everything. Pick it up on Amazon. I always like it when scientists step it up against other ‘scientists.’

——————————–

I was feeling a bit like a heel for not having gotten to the other reviews of books that have been sent my way that I ran down and grabbed them so I could at least get some links their way. It’s the least I can do, I reckon

Social Issues and Economics Go Hand in Hand

Worldnetdaily.com published a column I wrote.  Read the whole thing. Apparently, a letter has been written to GOP leaders by conservative homosexuals and some tea-party activists requesting that the GOP lay off its traditional pro-life stance. That would be horrible for many reasons. One reason: In actuality, de-emphasizing life issues is a threat to conservative […]
