Yesterday, the 8th Planned Parenthood video has been released.  Once again, the issues are clearly presented.  The organization that receives 50 million dollars from the United States government annually is guilty of murdering little unborn babies and selling their body parts.  It’s time that we respond in this nation.  Our response should be to outlaw the barbarous act of baby murder.

Should Women Wear Head Coverings? – Benjamin L. Merkle describes the cultural implications and theological implications related to women wearing head coverings.  He writes, “But Paul’s argument from creation in 1 Corinthians 11:8–9 is not directly given to mandate women must wear head coverings. Rather, his argument from creation explains how man is the image and glory of God, and how the woman is the glory of man. Christian women are not required to wear head coverings today when praying, since the symbol of a woman’s head being covered is different today than it was during the time of Paul (at least in many cultures). Consequently, Paul’s argument from creation is only indirectly linked to the need for head coverings.”
