Students Standing for Life

Under the Biden administration, the pro-life movement has two urgent concerns. First, is the rapid expansion of the use of chemical abortifacients in the U.S., which now account for nearly 50 percent of all abortions. And second is the vilification, slander and censorship of pro-life groups on social media by “Big Tech,” which label defenders of life as “hate groups”—even though today’s youth are actually more pro-life than ever before, according to Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America.

Sadly, many churches today fail to address the reality of the afterlife. But we know from Scripture that Heaven and hell are as real as day and night. Anne Graham Lotz, author of Heaven: My Father's House, shares that for those who have confessed their sin and trusted Christ as their Savior, Heaven is the ultimate promise fulfilled. Just as a mother’s home-cooked meal beckons whenever an adult child returns home, Heaven will likewise be a warm and welcoming, personal destination.

Whether it’s reflecting on the loss of a loved one, or trying to explain why there are so many deaths on TV news, it is essential that parents equip their kids to cope by giving them the assurance of Heaven. Otherwise, contemplating the end of life can be a terrifying thing. In her beautifully illustrated book, Heaven: God’s Promise for Me, Anne Graham Lotz reminds us that our children and grandchildren can enjoy the peace and security that comes from knowing that Heaven can one day be their home when they’ve placed their trust in Jesus Christ.

Many people casually believe that marriage should be a 50/50 proposition. But they’re wrong. Because that would be describing a performance-based marriage, where a husband and wife are always keeping score. Bob Lepine, author of Love Like You Mean It, cautions that we simply need to serve each other, instead of asking, “Did he or she pull their weight today?” Inspired by Jesus Himself, Bob describes how both partners in a Christian marriage should always give 100%.

Contrary to the claims of pop culture, love is not singularly emotional, or even necessarily romantic. Biblically speaking, the cornerstone of marital love is an unflinching commitment to one’s spouse and a Christ-like posture of self-sacrifice. In Bob Lepine’s new book, Love Like You Mean It (based on 1 Corinthians 13), he explains that patience, kindness, and humility are like marital disinfectants which help wash away the toxins that can build up over time.

Despite the fact that President Joe Biden has signed pro-abortion executive orders, God has been moving through the passage of “Heartbeat Bills” in 10 states (If a heartbeat is detected, the baby is protected against being aborted). On this edition of Family Talk, guest Janet Porter, author of A Heartbeat Away, says “what was once impossible is now inevitable! We are going to end abortion.” She believes that God will use the Heartbeat law to eventually overturn Roe v. Wade, thanks in part to President Trump’s three pro-life Supreme Court appointees.

The premise of the “Heartbeat Bill” is simple: If a heartbeat is detected, the baby is protected against being aborted. Janet Porter’s work on behalf of the unborn over the past decade has resulted in 10 states passing Heartbeat Bills into law, and they’re gaining in popularity. According to public opinion research from The Barna Group, 7 in 10 Americans now support these bills, including 86% of Republicans and 55% of Democrats. In Janet’s latest book, A Heartbeat Away, she predicts that the Heartbeat Bill will eventually pierce the heart of Roe v. Wade.

Many women today grapple with low self-esteem and self-confidence issues. Mary Crowley, author of Women Who Win, has a simple message for them: “You are designed for fulfillment. God has a plan for your life.” If women uphold the twin goals of honoring God and serving others, Mary is convinced they will experience success in their family and business lives. She also emphasizes the biblical principle that financial blessings are to be shared and not hoarded.

With the election of President Joe Biden, the temptation for conservatives might be to withdraw, pull the sheets over our heads, and ask God to wake us up in four years. But Christian talk show host Janet Parshall urges us to stay rooted in the Bible, remain engaged in the culture as Christ prescribes in John 17, and fervently pray and intercede for our leaders – even if we don’t especially like them or agree with their policies.

In his February newsletter entitled, “Where Do We Go from Here?,” Dr. James Dobson underscores his frustration that the U.S. Supreme Court sidestepped the issue of election integrity, and that both Georgia Senate seats were won by leftist Democrats in that state’s January runoff election. As a result, Americans will be burdened with a radical agenda. His advice? Like the faithful farmer who weathers the heat and rain, we who are conservative Christians must continue to “stay in the field”—knowing that God gives strength to the weary.

Last year, 100,000 high school students with special needs were honored guests at a special prom called, “A Night to Shine.” Today, we talk with the creative vision behind that special night: Heisman Trophy winner, former NFL Quarterback and New York Mets baseball player Tim Tebow. His new children’s book, Bronco and Friends: A Party to Remember, illustrates that regardless of abilities or disabilities, all of God’s children are special, wonderful, and perfectly made by our Creator. Tune in to Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk.
