B003D0TAM8.01._SX490_SCLZZZZZZZ_V190274968_Several months ago I posted this video about the abortion clinic at 3801 Lancaster in Philadelphia.  Babies born alive because of botched abortions were routinely killed. At least one woman died because of an abortion procedure gone wrong. Here are some of the heart-rending details. This alone will move you:

A woman who worked for Gosnell testified that she was called back to a room at his abortion clinic in Philadelphia where the bodies of aborted babies were kept to hear one screaming amid a shelf-full of dead babies. “I can’t describe it,” says the woman. “It sounded like a little alien.” She says the body of the child was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during abortion procedures at Gosnell’s clinic.

Have you noticed that there has been almost no media coverage regarding this place? Why is this? Trevin Wax weighs in.

Every Sunday the people of Bowman hear the gospel in some sense. The reason for this is because through Jesus all of our needs are met. Our challenge is to believe this unbelievably good news. Here are two videos that are well worth watching. Both of them point to the impact of the gospel in our lives.

B003D0TAM8.01._SX490_SCLZZZZZZZ_V190274968_Here is a great illustration of what Jesus accomplished on the cross. It is short and well worth the time.

J D Greear helpfully gives us two ways believers know they are saved.

Is it me or does it seem that the pro-abortionists are becoming more radical in their views all the time? Here is a must read entitled So What If Abortion Ends Life? Ponder that title. The very nature of liberalism is to “creep” (pun intended) along. Where will all of this go? I’m often sympathetic to those whose life situation is so overwhelming that killing one’s baby seems desirable, but the ivory tower pontificators of abortion rhetoric are wittingly or unwittingly pointing to a world where the strong can do whatever they want, and the weak can be killed for just about any reason.

Affairs look tantalizing. They seems to offer delight that can’t be found in our marriages. Here is a New York Times article detailing the devastating cost of dalliance.

Women, porn is coming your way. The success of the 50 Shades series has opened the eyes of those who make the stuff to the potential of the female market. Tim Challies writes about the new porn emphases tailored to women.

Today is the fortieth anniversary of Roe v. Wade. As you no doubt know, 51 million human babies have been slaughtered since then. Russell Moore relates the gospel to abortion.

Our children require energy to raise. Fortunately, there are many technological baby sitters that work for little or no money. But is this a good thing? Here is a helpful short article entitled “Why Not Be Engulfed in Technology?”

Douglas Wilson insightfully deals with the question as to whether faithful Roman Catholics will be saved.

I’ve been AWOL lately. Next week doesn’t look good either. In fact, the next six weeks look daunting. I’ll do my best to squeeze in what I can.

Abortion no doubt will continue to be a hot topic in this anniversary year of Roe v Wade. Here are a couple of links worth digesting. First, Randy Alcorn states that every life is important no matter how he or she was conceived. Next, Joe Carter highlights nine things people should know about Roe v. Wade.

Continuing with hot topics, it is interesting that a majority of the French seem opposed to same-sex marriage. Who would have guessed? Here is an video by an Irish organization defending man-woman marriage. I think this is the type of argument that needs to be made in our country.

The truth about God should move us to worship God. Put differently, theology should drive doxology. If it doesn’t, theology, the truth about God, needs to be understood in a more personal way. Gerrit Scott Johnson reminds us of this truth using one of our favorite hymns here at Bowman, Come Ye Sinners.

Tim Challies critiques the book The Insanity of God. As he does this he writes of God’s present day miracles. He states that God is still in the miracle working business and that the greatest miracle of all is, of course, conversion.

Finally, don’t miss this short video by Tullian. While it is directed to teachers and preachers, what it says is good for all of us.
