New Blog Series: Testimonies. Share Your Story

Hello Brothers and Sisters in Christ!

Today I am very excited to announce a new upcoming series on Stand Tall For Christ called TESTIMONIES. As you might have already guessed, this series will showcase Christian Testimonies from around the world… and to get this series off the ground I need to hear from you! If you want to be featured… email me today, the following:

  • Your Name (full or abbreviated, whatever you want to use).

I believe testimonies are one of the most powerful tools God has given us to reach the lost and I always like to tell Christians… your testimony is NOT yours, it belongs to God.

The Reality of Abortion. GRAPHIC IMAGE WARNING!

This article is not for the feint of heart, in fact this is not an article I would have even written just a week ago. This article is going to contain VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES of abortion at different stages of development. The purpose of this article is to educate people on the very gruesome nature of modern abortion in America and to shine a bright light on the dark underbelly of this industry.

The talking points made by pro-choice activists are simple… a fetus is not human, only a clump of tissue. It is the woman’s body and she has the right to make any decision she chooses with it.

>>> WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES AHEAD <<<

warning-graphic-images

To illustrate the ridiculous notion that a fetus is not a human there are three groups of photos below, all photos taken after an abortion procedure. The photos represent 4 stages of development: 8 weeks, 9 weeks, 10 weeks and 22 weeks.

The images are made available from AbortionNO.org. They are the copyright holder and these images have been posted here with their permission.

All of these abortions, except the last four, are perfectly legal in all 50 states. The last four (22-24 weeks) are legal in over 16 states. How many children are dismembered and ripped from their mother’s womb because they would be a financial burden? How many have chemicals injected into their hearts to kill them because they were “unplanned”?

What will it take to stop the bloodshed in our country? When will we all WAKE UP to what is really happening right in front of us? When will enough be enough?

If you are fed up and want to do something, here are some resources and organizations that can use your help:

4 Common Pro-Choice Arguments That Defy Logic

In America, we have aborted over 60 Million children since 1973 when Roe V. Wade became the law of the land. Proponents of abortion on-demand use four common arguments when faced with this tragic reality. In this article I want to discuss these four talking points and address each one individually.

#1 The viability of the Fetus

In this very common talking point, the pro-choice advocates point out that a fetus that is not “viable” has no inherent value or right to life. What exactly do they mean by viability? They mean that without the mother or “host” body, they would be unable to survive on their own. The obvious flaw in this argument is quite apparent when you apply this same principle to a human who is on life support at any stage of life. Does a person on life support suddenly become less human? Do they suddenly forfeit their right to exist? Do we suddenly gain the power to determine if they live or die? Of course not, this argument becomes quite absurd when viewed from this perspective.

#2 A woman can do what she wants with her body

This might be convincing if this were actually true in every other area of life… but again a double-standard exists for the unborn. If a woman walks out in public and threatens to commit suicide, do we all just shrug and say “she has a right to kill herself”? What if law enforcement is nearby? Will they just move along and let her kill herself? No. She will be taken into custody for psychiatric evaluation. Against her will.

Another clear example, we do not allow women to drink and drive. Why not? It’s her body! Yes, but she could hurt or kill another human, so this act is illegal, as it should be. When dealing with abortion, a woman’s right to choose should end when any other life is threatened with harm or death. Especially the voiceless child in her womb.

#4 We have enough unwanted babies in the world

As with the first two arguments, again we find this ridiculous idea that could NEVER be applied to any other situation. Should we gather up all the children of the world who lack loving parents, who live in poverty, who don’t have shoes or regular meals and kill them all? Do these precious angels lose ALL human value because they are unwanted? What about elderly people who are left in the care of state run facilities at the end of life, abandoned by their loved ones… do they also deserve death? When I consider the millions and millions of aborted babies, especially those that were simply “unwanted” I often contemplate which of them may have cured cancer, or become President. Sadly we will never know.

#4 Women who receive abortions are less likely to suffer mental health problems than women denied abortions.

This could be the most troubling argument I have ever heard. A peer-reviewed study comparing the mental health of women who received abortions to women denied abortions found that women who were denied abortions “felt more regret and anger” and “less relief and happiness” than women who had abortions. The same study also found that 95% of women who received abortions “felt it was the right decision” a week after the procedure (Abortion ProCon.org).

Many years ago I abandoned two cats on a neighborhood doorstep, because I was moving into a new apartment that didn’t accept pets. That decision has haunted me for nearly a decade, my wife saw how emotional I had become after the fact and returned to the home to try to find them. We never saw those cats (Pip and Scoot) ever again, and just typing about it now, makes me weep. The grief over that momentary lack in judgement, over that decision I made due to the pressures of life will follow me to my grave.

How much more would the decision to kill a child haunt a mother? The idea that a woman felt it was the right decision a week after an abortion… is rather irrelevant.  As a man, if I AGREED that my wife should abort a child it would haunt me forever… and I am not the one having the procedure. Every time I looked into the eyes of a child I would see my murdered son or daughter and feel the blood on my hands. It would be haunting.

So how have we become so desensitized in America?

This question at one time puzzled me, but now I am desperate to know the answer. My guess is that this is multi-layered but it begins with the perception that a Human Fetus is not really a Human at all. The pro-choice advocates prefer terms like “lump of tissue” or “clump of cells” and nearly always refer to the unborn child as an “it”. Imagine if you approached a woman who was planning to give birth and referred to her child as an “it”… socially unacceptable right? Yet this is how another fetus in the same stage of development is referred if he or she is about to be aborted.

If you are reading this article right now, and you are hurting, in a dark place, feel pressured or are contemplating having an abortion… would you pause for a moment. Would you consider that in just a few short months a baby boy or girl will be brought into the world filled with life and love. It may seem impossible to you, maybe you can’t figure out how you will afford it, or continue going to school, or pursue your career or tell your parents. The reasons you may be using to justify this decision could be many but I would encourage you to consider all the ways a child would be a blessing in your life.

Imagine your son or daughter growing up, going to school, graduating and going to college, getting married and having kids of their own. One day you are surrounded by grandkids and even great-grandkids. You will probably look deep into your child’s eyes often and thank God you didn’t make that decision to abort so long ago. You will rock them to sleep in your arms and feel a love you could never have imagined.

If you need help right now, you can reach out to my friends at the Human Coalition by clicking on the image below or you can email me directly: standtallforchrist@gmail.com.
Most of all I want you to know that you are not ALONE. Even if everyone in your life is pressuring you to abort your child, you are not alone. You are loved and there are many people you have not met, that desperately want to help you through this difficult time. Reach out before it’s too late.

Watch this Movie Before it is Banned!

Today I was at work, and while on a break, was watching YouTube videos on my phone. The channel was Apologia Studios and the video was of Pastor Jeff Durbin ministering outside an abortion clinic. My wife called me and stated there was a movie we had to watch TONIGHT. She continued and stated that she was watching one of her YouTube channels, and they talked about a movie called Gosnell that was being banned around the country.

She asked if I had heard of a guy named Gosnell, and I remembered the story from years ago about an abortion doctor who went to prison for murder. She then revealed she was also watching Apologia Studios and felt that we really needed to see this movie (more on that later).

So at 8PM we went to see Gosnell. Now I have followed the pro-life, pro-choice debate for years and have written about it here before, but nothing really prepares you for the reality we live in… that is on full display with this film. The leftist media is painting this movie as a “right-wing” propaganda piece… and trying to convince everyone that Gosnell was an isolated case or WORSE; that if abortion is restricted or made illegal, then MORE Gosnell clinics will be forced to open their doors.

Let me restate my title for this article: Watch this Movie Before it is Banned!

Even though audiences have been shown to rate this movie highly (98% Audience score on Rotten Tomatoes) many smaller theaters are dropping it. In our neck of the woods it was playing at several theaters just a few days ago, and now it’s down to just two.

There is massive, powerful, political machine at work in this country fighting to keep abortion-on-demand available to anyone who wants one and the body count left in the wake of this machine is staggering.

Since Roe Vs. Wade in 1973 we have aborted over 60 MILLION BABIES in America. Just to put that in perspective we currently have 325 Million people living in America, meaning we have killed over 18% of that number in the womb.

Let that information soak in for a minute. Now realize that we have a society, the most advanced in the world, that grinds along feigning moral outrage over ridiculous ideas like “gender fluidity” while baby killing factories are hard at work, right out in the open. What I find most ironic is that the “left” consistently paints the “right” as Nazis… while their platform and agenda is worse than every Nazi concentration camp combined… and not just a little worse… VASTLY worse.

It is estimated that Nazis murdered 6 Million Jews right out in the open, business as usual… for the betterment of a white world. We are worse. Not just in the number of innocent people we have killed, but in the laid back attitude we have taken while it happens, every day, every hour.

God’s Plan and Timing

Early I was sharing about how my wife was watching a video from the same YouTube channel I was watching, at the exact same time. After going to see this movie, I have no doubt that God wanted us in that theater. Now I have to ask myself, for what purpose? It is now after midnight and my eyes are heavy and I just want to keep writing.

God has spoken to me tonight, and I realize I can no longer sit on the sidelines as God’s children are murdered by the millions, I have to fight for what is right. It is my hope and prayer that you will find this movie and watch it! If you are already pro-life, it will make you wonder what you can do right now to fight for the unborn, if you are pro-choice it just might make you rethink your position and value a life over a woman’s right to choose. Either way, I hope you watch it and see for yourself.

Stay Strong & Stand Tall,

The Journey: Day 20 – The Ups and Downs

The biggest question I am asked of people who know about my Journey into veganism is are you still vegan? My reply is, yes of course. Just not 100% of the time. To be honest with you, I want and NEED to be honest, this is the toughest change I have ever made in my life. I haven’t been keeping a diary of my food intake, but I can say at least 5 times in the past 15 days I have eaten dairy and/or chicken.

Writing about this now, I am trying to decide if I made those choices out of weakness or perhaps my addiction got the better of me. The worst of it was one trip to Zabbas where I ordered a chicken burrito with EXTRA chicken, cheese and sour cream. It tasted SOOOO good going down, but afterwards the guilt set in. Other times I have chosen to eat dairy/chicken include a couple of trips to Taco Bell for grilled chicken tacos with cheese and bean burritos.

While it is important to report on areas of weakness I also want to share the success I have achieved. In the past 20 days I have not had ONE slice of pizza, zero soda, zero ice cream, zero chips, zero burgers… in fact I would estimate about 85% of the food I have consumed is either pure vegan or pretty darn close. In fact I was able to make one dish from scratch: whole wheat pasta with natural spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, onions and peppers that tasted AMAZING. It is very cheap, takes about 12 minutes to construct and is very filling. Now I just need to find and add a few more vegan recipes to my arsenal.

This is where I can use your help!

Do you have an amazing vegan recipe you would like to share with me? If so, post it in the comments below and I will give it a whirl. I am not a big fan of TOFU so hopefully you can avoid posting recipes with TOFU.

Lastly I want to talk about my exercise routine, which for 16 of the 20 days was 20 minutes on the elliptical machine. Early on I missed one day, then the last three days I have completely slacked. Tomorrow is my day off and I WILL get back on the horse.

When I started I was 330 lbs and I do not plan to weigh myself again until November 4th. What I can report is that my clothing feels looser and people are noticing a change. So things are progressing in the right direction.

Sometimes I just want to give up this whole thing and go back to eating meat and dairy, but what my food addiction never counted on was my long history of pornography addiction. When you gain control over an addiction, you begin to learn how you respond in certain circumstances… and this desire to run back to meat is no different than the desire to look at other women with lust. My flesh is being starved of the things it loves and it is not happy about it.

I will never allow my flesh to rule my life ever again.

Get Out To Vote!

This morning early voting opened in Nevada and I arrived at my local polling station, excited to cast my vote. Two things became apparent very quickly… first the line grew fast snaking it’s way through the store. Second the diversity of the voters was amazing, young and old along with many different races and ethnic groups present.

Democracy in action, it is a beautiful thing. No matter what side of the political spectrum you find yourself, it is my hope you exercise your right to vote. Don’t take it for granted, you might be amazed to know how few countries in the world actually have a truly democratic election system. If you are an American you are very lucky to live under the freedoms our great nation provides. Show your gratitude by casting your vote. Fulfill your civic duty by casting your vote.

If you are a Christian in America reading this, understand how very important the mid-term elections are… if Democrats seize control of the House or Senate they will effectively shut President Trump’s agenda down. We cannot allow that to happen. He has made great strides in his short time in office, but there is much more work to do.

You may not like him as a person, or his attitude or his tweets… but as a Christian you should be very happy with his policies. We have seen what eight years under Democratic rule looks like and for many of us, we wish we could turn back the clock and undo the insanity that Obama and the Social Justice Warriors have unleashed.

Unfortunately we cannot go back in time, but we can fuel the future and support President Trump for another six years. We can help him Make America Great Again.

Comment below if you exercised your right to vote.

The Insanity of the Gender Debate

The following video clearly illustrates the insanity of the supposed “Gender Debate” taking place all around the Country. The idea that people can freely choose their Gender based on how they feel inside leads to places where logic and common sense have no value. Watch this short video…

We have come to a place where a significant percentage of the population agrees that a man can assume the gender role of a woman simply because he feels a certain way (and vice versa). Making matters worse this same group believes the rest of us have a duty to reinforce this delusional behavior.

We haven’t gone so far as Canada yet, where they are passing laws making it hate speech if you don’t refer to someone by their “preferred pronoun”, but we are clearly on that path.

Why is this a problem?

We have built a society based on definitions and labels, this is how we communicate as a species. We have also put in place many social structures based on these labels. For example, when a person reaches the age of 55 they are generally considered a senior citizen and qualify for many social benefits, like discounts in many places.

But what happens when a 20 year old man, decides to “identify” as a 60 year old man? Would he then qualify for the discounts? Or would we have to dispense with all of the social benefits we have previously set aside for seniors? Or should we simply stick with what we know to be true, you are a certain age, and you cannot change that number, no matter how much you feel like something else.

You may be thinking, this is ridiculous, no one is trying to identify as a different age!! Let me ask you one question, are you sure about that? Allow me to introduce you to one such man… Stefonknee Wolschtt, 46, a Toronto man who left his wife and seven children and now identifies as a 6 year old girl, living with an adopted family.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/stefonknee-wolschtt-transgender-father-leaves-family-in-toronto-to-start-new-life-as-a-six-year-old-a6769051.html

The world we live in is changing rapidly, or progressing if you will. However, progression is only a good thing if you are heading in the right direction. As a nation we are heading in the exact opposite direction of truth and morality. The murder rates of unborn children is in the tens of millions, the family unit all over the country is broken in pieces, the divorce rates in and out of the church are skyrocketing, drugs are taking over our children at alarming rates, and now we are in rebellion against God’s creation in ways I would never have imagined.

These are troubling times, and this leads me to believe that Jesus is on his way back very soon. In the meantime, I plan to Stand Tall against the lies of the enemy in this war against reality. It saddens me that people suffer with mental illness, but one thing you never do when someone is living in an alternate reality is reinforce their beliefs. The loving thing to do is encourage them to seek treatment, but be careful, you might get arrested for hate speech.
