A Prayer for the Unborn

Posted by Kyle Edwards on

I offer this prayer in light of the ongoing Planned Parenthood scandal involving the selling of body parts of aborted babies. God Almighty, for the babies who have no hope or justice in this life, we cry out to you, their heavenly Father. What David writes in Psalm 139 of himself is true for...

WCF 1: OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURE This week I finally begin my commentary on the Westminster Confession of Faith. See the last two weeks' posts for its history and authority.  First things first, why does the WCF begin with the Bible and not with God? Did they get the proper order of things...
