When You Vote - Distinguish Policy From Principle

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 01 September 2010 - - - - - - · 831 views

In any political discussion there will be differences of opinion. Whether the debate is over off shore drilling or how to end a war, differing opinions are bound to surface. However, as we debate issues let’s be careful to make a distinction between policy and principle. As Fr. Frank Pavone points out, “Most disagreements between candidates and...


God, Islam and America

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 10 August 2010 - - - - - - · 1031 views

Is God behind the Muslim threat to America? Throughout Biblical history God repeatedly used other nations (see the book of Judges) to punish the sins of His people, to bring them back to repentance for their sin. Pastor Rusty Lee Thomas writes that we need "…to connect the dots between our spiritual and moral state with the rise and threat of Islam...


Facing Judgment - A Call to Action

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 09 August 2010 - - - - - - · 892 views

Will America go bankrupt? According to Senator Judd Gregg (R-N.H), “If we continue to spend much more than we take in we'll double our debt in five years and triple it in 10 years and essentially be where Greece is [bankrupt] in about seven years.” (Jane McGrath, CNSNews.com – see below) I don't know whether God will strike at America's...


Lessons From Adrian

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 27 July 2010 - - - - - - · 1082 views

Adrian is my first grandson. He was unplanned but not unwanted or unloved. He was born out of wedlock but not out of God's Providence. When I look into his eyes I am mindful that he is fashioned in the image of God, a reflection of the glory and majesty of his Creator. When we take the life of one of these little ones while in the sanctuary of their...


No Time For Silence

I have watched a brief YouTube video message (see link below) from my friend Pastor Arnold Culbreath to the pastors of America. It is a plea for their help in speaking about abortion in their churches. Rev. Culbreath is the Urban Outreach Director of Protecting Black Life (www.protectingblacklife.org). Millions of post-abortive men and women in the churches...


Race, Censorship & the Tea Party

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 21 July 2010 - - - - - - · 864 views

I haven't attended a Tea Party Rally, but my observation from reports I've seen is that there are a lot of African Americans speaking at the rallies. Lloyd Marcus, Deneen Borelli, Pastor Stephen Broden, Herman Cain, Apostle Claver T. Kamu-Imani, Pastor C.L. Bryant, Chaplain Tommy Davis, Alfonzo Rachel, Ron Miller, Lt. Col. Allen West, Angela...


"Choose Life" and the Obama Stickers

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 17 July 2010 - - - - - - · 848 views

Earlier this week I saw an SUV with one of those bright yellow "Choose Life" Florida license plates and three, that's right, three Obama bumper stickers on the back of the vehicle. A sick feeling came over me. How does one "choose life" while choosing a leader who unashamedly promotes death. The Psalmist wrote, “Can wicked rulers...


Faith Without Works is Dead - And So Are the Unborn

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 16 July 2010 - - - - - - · 797 views

"Unless a man becomes the enemy of evil, he will not even become its slave, but rather its champion. God Himself will not help us to ignore evil but only to defy and to defeat it!" (G. K. Chesterton) Has the Church failed to understand that God is the enemy of abortion? Could that explain its silence and ambivalence to the holocaust that is...


I Hope History Repeats Itself - For the Sake of the Unborn

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 05 July 2010 - - - - - - · 904 views

January 23, 2010 was the thirty-seventh anniversary of Roe v. Wade. We remembered the tyranny of seven men, including five Republicans, who ushered in an era of unprecedented bloodshed in America by their ill advised decision – a decision that was not only bad law (there is no "right to privacy" in the Constitution) but immoral law. There is...

"We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness - that to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just power from the consent of the governed..." The Declaratio...
