Without God as the secure source of our rights, from whence come those rights?
When Vice President Kamala Harris gave a speech promoting abortion over the weekend, she cited our nation’s founding document and the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But she conveniently left out the right to life — even though that is the first right listed. She also left out the Creator — the source of all our rights.
Wilberforce is a great example of what Jesus can do through those fully committed to Him in whatever position in which He has placed them — when God’s “amazing grace” gets ahold of a life wholly committed to Him.
After a half-century of the abortion ethic, we have lost a lot of ground in cherishing the “right to life.” Raising awareness of these nationwide safe haven laws is a step in the right direction.
Atheists like Richard Dawkins or Sam Harris see the increasing secularization of our culture as a good thing. But in reality, ostracizing faith and marginalizing churches will ultimately only harm all of us. Literally.

Here is a lesson for us all. No one in this world, no matter how lowly, no matter what side of the tracks they come from, would find Jesus unrelatable. He is accessible to all.
Why do some climate alarmists essentially wish us all dead? Because they think people are bad for the earth. They don’t believe in God.
Perhaps the greatest fear of secularists, like those bureaucrats in King County trying to turn Christmas into a black-and-white “winter wasteland,” is the possibility that Jesus is real and that His birth was just the beginning of His Kingdom.
