Save A Life, Join The 40 Days For Life Campaign To End Abortion

By: Curtis Ophoven 0 Comments   10/7/2012

ST CLOUD – A few weeks ago I had the privilege of attending the opening rally for the next “40 days for life” campaign in St. Cloud which is also going on across the nation.

The opening rally was Sunday, September 23rd, 6:00pm at Granite City Baptist Church & Academy, thanks to Pastor Dennis Campbell for hosting the event.

The 40 days for life campaign is the longest coordinated pro-life mobilization in history.

Anyone can participate by joining others in a united effort to pray and walk from September 26th – November 4th.

Here are a few pictures from the event.

Here is the facebook page to get involved.  

You will not be alone because over half a million people have participated in the 40 days for life across the nation in the last several years.  And you will make a difference because nearly 6,000 babies have been saved from abortions because of the 23 abortion clinics that have closed.  

Here is the website with a picture of some of the people from St. Cloud.  

This is the 7th campaign in St. Cloud and each time it has grown in size.  All ages can participate.

The national momentum to end Abortion is stronger than ever before primarily because new scientific technology has uncovered what we always knew - life begins at conception.  The national abortion providers are increasingly under pressure with $60 million in government funding drying up just in the last few years.

Many states are down to one abortion clinic including MN.  Next year, several states will likely close their one and only abortion clinic and as they do, other states will follow until abortion is removed from our land and the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness will be restored.  With the majority of people against Abortion, one case could easily end Abortion in the next few years.

Abortion is at the heart of the division of our nation for two reasons, first is puts blood on our hands as an unnatural and unnecessary death and second the lies contained in the idea that we can kill each other without a moral conviction leads us to believe many other lies. 

Scripture tells us; “woe to those that call evil good and good evil...” – Isaiah 5:20.

When we trade the truth for a lie, we can no longer think clearly about what is right/wrong.  All laws contain morality because laws determine what society believe is right and wrong.  But laws cannot teach both good and evil, they must choose just as every nation much choose what they are going to put into their laws.

Is a nation is going to promote moral living that is based on the truth found only in the Word of God that results in blessings or are they going to teach immorality which leads to destruction?  There is no middle ground.  No such thing as a law that is neutral.

Abortion teaches society that the natural love a mother and father have for their children can be overlooked for the convenience of their own lives.  This this is a devastating lie and teaching people to believe it is evil.  It is against nature, against science and against God – the creator of life. 

We are not the creators of life and therefore we have no right to take life.

A Cry for Justice: Overcome anger, reject bitterness, and trust in Jesus who will fight for you

Anyone that has been through difficult times, this book is for you. Our demand for justice is a demand for a loving God. Shelley’s pain was so severe that she refused to believe in God and tried to end her life several times before God used a small group of believers to intervene in her life and show that God does exist. This is really an amazing story. Shelley's testimony is a powerful and relatable to anyone who has ever experienced pain or disappointment in their lives. She is refreshingly honest about her journey and tackles difficult questions about suffering. The book leaves you understanding the power and love of Jesus in a way that fills you with hope.

Losing Our Virtue: Why the Church Must Recover Its Moral Vision

All is not lost. The culture can be won and postmodernism can be discredited because this generation is desperately hungry for the truth. The question is will the Church rise up and seek after the knowledge of Christ and then trade a life of lugury for a life of giving life to the generation that is literally being destroyed without it. In this book, David has a stinging assault on the idolatrous nature of postmodern man. Chock full of astute observations about the utter lack of morality within American popular culture and the creeping destruction of Christianity caused by compromises with that culture, this book is a clarion call to intelligent people who understand that only through the death of self and utter submission to the God of the Christian Bible can the we hold out hope for the future.

Flipside Of Feminism: What Conservative Women Know and Men Can't Say

This is the best book I have ever read that explains the myths of feminism and how they have destroyed so many families. Suzanne explains feminist movement was never about supporting all women, just liberal women. The ideas of feminism are really just a big lie. The idea that feminism has something better to offer strong and independent women is sadly untrue. Women that take the identity of feminism are taking an unnecessary “burden of guilt-ridden, stressed out, and saddled with a psychological need to prove there important to the world”. Of course the work ‘Feminism’ is seldom used today, but the ideas are everywhere and loved by the media. But the opposite is true. Rather than being oppressive, marriage and motherhood are the greatest strengths of women that result in the greatest success and influent, both in career and as a wife and mother.

Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design

This book is arguably the best case for intelligent design as of 2011. Meyer shows the empirical evidence, and historical scientific reasoning. Without a question, the evidence of how DNA is constructed points to a very intelligent designer. No one in the scientific community has any other reasonable explanation for the signature of an intelligent designer that has been uncovered by DNA research.
