(CNSNews.com) – Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s latest annual report for 2011-2012 says that its affiliated clinics performed 333,964 abortions in fiscal 2011.
That works out to an average of one abortion every 94 seconds.
The 333,964 abortion Planned Parenthood did in fiscal 2011 is an increase of 4,519 from the 329,445 abortions it did in 2010, according to a fact sheet that Planned Parenthood published last year.
Over two years, Planned Parenthood says, it has aborted 663,409.
The 2011-2012 report states that Planned Parenthood received $542.4 million in “government health services grants and reimbursements,” which it states includes “payments from Medicaid managed care plans.”

In yet another “Has God said?” challenge over a controversial issue, an anonymous group known only as “The Editors” has released a new bible “translation” called The Queen James Bible to “prevent homophobic misinterpretation of God’s word.” They erroneously claim the following:
“[H]omosexuality was first mentioned in the Bible in 1946 in the Revised Standard Version. There is no mention of or reference to homosexuality in any Bible prior to this – only interpretations have been made.” (queenjamesbible.com)
The “Editors” based their new bible on the 1769 version of the King James Bible because, “everyone knows the King James Bible; it is arguably the most popular Bible in history and the basis of many other translations.” On their website, on the “Editor’s Notes” page, listed as reason number 3 as to why they chose the King James Bible, they cite a most ironic reason for using this version to “translate” from:
“Most English bible translations that actively condemn homosexuality have based themselves on the King James Version and have erroneously adapted its words to support their own agenda. We wanted to return to the clean source and start there.” (queenjamesbible.com, Emphasis added)
Do they not see the irony in that statement? Are they not doing exactly what they are accusing others of doing by “adapt[ing] its (the Bible’s) words to support their own agenda”? And then in an almost laughable pious declaration, they claim to be returning “to the clean source” and starting there. Really?
While there are many more troubling statements and declarations made on their website, in this article, I’d like to focus on who or what these supposed “clean sources” are for which “The Editors” use to justify changing God’s word.
On their “Editor’s Notes” page, the “Editors” list eight verses for which they’ve changed: Genesis 19:5, Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13, Romans 1:26, Romans 27, 1 Corinthians 6:9, 1 Corinthians 6:10, 1 Timothy 10, Jude 1:7 (for anyone keeping track, that’s actually nine verses).

A third affiliate of the nation’s leading abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, is leaving the organization because of a demand that all local groups provide abortions starting no later than 2013.
“Planned Parenthood of South Central New York is the latest affiliate to become independent because it won’t comply with the rule,” Marjorie Dannenfesler, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said in a statement today.
She cited an announcement from the affiliate itself.
“This mandate will no doubt result in an increase in revenue for Planned Parenthood as well as an increase in the more than 329,000 lives the abortion chain ends in one year. Does that sound like women’s health?”

[Editor's Note: Each year we receive many questions concerning Halloween. The following article helps to answer those questions, which is why we like to re-post this thorough examination of Halloween each year. We pray it helps in your discernment about this "holiday."]
When we became followers of Jesus Christ there were many practices we put behind us; lying, immorality, drunkenness, brawling, etc. We accepted the clear teaching of Holy Scripture that a believer should not make such habits a practice in his life. Many, however, feel that the bible is not so clear in condemning the believer’s participation in the celebration of Halloween. They would say that it is a “gray area” where each man must be convinced in his own mind. Is this true? Let us examine, from a biblical and historical perspective, what the bible has to say about the revelry of October 31st.

“I am going there to preach the Gospel.” This is the reason that frequently is offered when a well-known Christian leader ventures into a forum where some think he ought not go. Oftentimes the Gospel is preached, and Christians rejoice that the lost were able to hear the good news of salvation and forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ. Other times, however, the Gospel is diluted, or not presented at all, in spite of ample opportunities to share it. These instances are unfortunate and grievous.
Prior to appearing on Oprah’s Lifeclass last Friday, October 5 , pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church would tweet:
“Paul went to the marketplace. I’ve accepted an invitation to answer questions on Oprah’s Life Class. It will air in Jan 2013.” (Source)

On October 5th, along with others on Facebook, I watched 3 hours of live taping of Oprah’s Lifeclass online. This included an hour of Word Faith preacher Joel Osteen with Oprah and 2 hours of megachurch Pastor Rick Warren with Oprah. These programs will air later on the OWN network (Rick Warren’s two shows will air in early 2013).

Let us first begin by stating that our prayers go out to the victim’s families as they try to make sense out of the senseless. The shooting in Aurora, CO was a horrible tragedy and we can’t begin to understand the pain that surrounds this situation. May the Lord be with everyone who has been negatively affected by this senseless tragedy.
James Holmes was described by witnesses as cold and calculating in his murderous rampage at the Cinema 16 movie theater. Sporting orange/red hair he announced himself as “The Joker” and then proceeded to shoot indiscriminately at moviegoers inside the theater showing “Batman: Dark Night Rises” the evening of July 19th, 2012. Early reports state that Holmes’ intention was to murder, destroy and cause chaos, like that of the dark movie character, The Joker, even planning the attacks months in advance.
How is it that someone could turn into such a cold, murderous lunatic? Perhaps it is the same dark influence that led to the tragic death of Heath Ledger, who also battled The Joker’s satanic roots. This same satanic influence surrounding the character The Joker has also led to several other copycat attacks in the past, who acted out the Joker-like persona.
