"Since it was through a tree that we lost the Logos in paradise, it was through a tree again that the Logos was made manifest to all when he showed in himself the length, the height, the depth, and the breadth and, as one of the oldest Christians said, he gathered together the two peoples to one God by stretching out both his hands." “Traditions of the Elders” in Irenaeus, Against Heresies V. 36.1, 2; 5.1; 17.4.
The true value or worth, of every Human Being :
On Calvary’s cross, where you and I were ransomed, Jesus Christ measured out His blood equally for each one of us. Not a drop more or a drop less of His blood was for a white man or black man, a male or female, old or young, retarded, crippled, blind, deaf, dumb or precious baby in the womb. He paid an eternal life for each one of us, and that was "while we were yet sinners, Christ loved us and gave himself for us" (Rom 5:8).
Therefore, each individual human being is worth more than all the gold, silver, precious stones, cattle, stocks, bonds, oil, etc., in the universe. All of these resources combined together, could not purchase or equal the value of an eternal life. God has made this declaration of our worth, in His own blood through the person of Jesus Christ. To put any other value on any single member of the human race is a terrible injustice, and "an unjust scales is an abomination to God" (Prov 11:1).
What is Abortion ?
Abortion is the devil’s counterfeit sacrifice of that which God accomplished when He sent His only Son (child) Jesus, to be the substitute to die for every persons sins, "for the wages of sin is death." Because Jesus is God (Jn 1:1), He is worth more than everything and everyone that He created. All things were created by Him (Jesus Christ), through Him and for Him (Col 1:16-17). God, the only One Who is worth more than the entire human race which He Himself created, for "every weight in the bag with God is perfect"(Prov 16:11), came to earth to redeem each and everyone of us, and this He magnificently accomplished at Calvary.
Now if God has a human sacrifice, (i.e. His only Son) because of His great love for us, then the devil, the counterfeiter, wants to have human sacrifice also. However, the devil wants it for our destruction. With God, the one (Jesus) was sacrificed for all, but with the devil, all (the babies) are sacrificed for the one. You see, Jesus was without sin, spotless, and blameless; "the lamb of God who would take away the sins of the world". How can the devil get a perfect sacrifice? Since the fall of Adam, all of us are born with original sin or the sin nature. By having the innocent babies sacrificed to him before they are born, satan has the most perfect sacrifice on this side of heaven.
Furthermore, just as abortion is satan’s counterfit of the death of God’s Son, "partial birth abortion" is the devil’s counterfit of Christ’s crucifixion. You see, Jesus died a horrible death. His body was tortured, bruised and pulverized for our sins. "He himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by His wounds you have been healed" (1 Pet 2:24). Similarly, the devil is not satisfied to just kill the little innocent babies, and so we have here in America, the quasi legalization of this satanic barbaric ritual called "partial birth abortion".
Therefore, knowing that Christ Jesus has already triumphed over every foe of life, making a public spectacle of them at the Cross, we "wrestle not against flesh and blood" (Eph 6:12). For the devil has taken many captive to do his will - to kill, steal and destroy. (2 Tim 2:26; John 10:10)
Hosea 9:11 "Ephraim's glory will fly away like a bird - no birth, no pregnancy, no conception. Even if they rear children, I will bereave them of every one. Woe to them when I turn away from them! ......Ephraim will bring out their children to the slayer".
Pastors, if you knew how to stop the legalized slaughter of pre-born babies, would you do so? Well now you can and it is amazingly simple to do. We just have to repent of OUR wicked ways (2 Chron 7:14) and return to the first 1930 years of Church teaching, whether Protestant or Catholic.
These Ministries and others like them are the key to undoing the abortion holocaust. If every Christian Church in our land welcomed the teaching help that is available here, legalized abortion will quickly wither like the leaves at autumn.
Pastors everywhere, please open your hearts to the cry of the persecuted unborn. Next to teaching God's Word and prayer, these are the most important ministries to welcome into our congregations.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. (Hosea 4:6)
Our Lord Jesus Christ has told us that the devil is a liar, a thief and a murderer. As you read the following article from Dr. John C. Willke MD, and the many more posted on this website, you will more fully understand the devil's plan to destroy the CHURCH by stealing from us the Testimony of Jesus Christ. Yet, we have the Saviour's promise: "I will build my Church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it." (Matt 16:18)

Once we understand the chemical holocaust as revealed in the above chart, we can then receive light on this scripture, "full of dead men's bones", literally.
The word "contra" means against. The word "ception" means fruitfulness. So, contraception means, to be "against fruitfulness". The very 1st command that God gave to the human race is the object of attack from "contraception birth control". For God's purpose in creating man was, and still is - to fill the earth with His Son. "Until the whole earth is filled with the glory of God"- and, "Christ in us is the hope of glory". Until there is no more Jew or Greek or Irishman; no more Protestant or Catholic; no more male or female etc.; but "Christ all and in all". What a privelage God has bestowed upon Christian marriage? Please hear Our Lord say these words again right now; "be ye fruitful and multiply". My sheep listen to my voice and they will not listen to anyone else. Got it?
The word "sorcery", originates from the Greek word pharmakia, which in turn gives us our modern word, pharmaceuticals. The New Testament is very clear about where all un-repentant sorcerers will end up (contraception birth control included ). Galatians 5:20-21 says, that those who practice "idolatery, sorcery, hatred...envy, murders...will not inherit the kingdom of God"(NKJ). Revelation 21:7-8 says, "murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone"(NKJ). Revelation 22:15 tells us, "Outside are the sorcerers and the sexually immoral, and murderers and idolaters and whoever loves and practices a lie"(NKJ). In Acts 19:18 we see those confessing Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord publicly burning their sorcery books.

Abortion : includes all forms of contraception birth
The Pill, Morning After, EC, Mini, Norplant, IUD etc..
( * ) Using an average of 1.33 million surgical abortions per year.
( ** ) Began prior to 1973.
(***) Based on the chart showing yearly statistics for infant homicides in the USA at www.life.org
These abortion figures are for the USA only. For a rough world estimate, multiply by 40.
There can NEVER be a political solution to abortion until there is first a spiritual solution brought about by The Lord's people. In fact, all the political effort to outlaw surgical abortion is no more than a sham if those who claim to represent Christians continue to have no regard for the chemical holocaust and the "waxed cold" love for children in the institutional church, which they are thoroughly aware of. Four fifths of any iceberg is hidden under water, as is the case with abortion (please see the above chart). We strain at gnats and swallow camels instead of FIRST removing "The Plank". Matt. 23:24
What farmer would first spread pesticide in his field in order to kill the very crop that he would later sow in that same field. In the case of "contraception birth control" we are talking about human pesticide, the end of which is both spiritual and physical murder through the use of abortifacients, and is also the case through the use of condoms, tubal-ligations, vasectomies, foams, gels etc., where the child is doubly murdered, both in mens hearts and again even before conception takes place. For in the later also, had nature not been interferred with, a child might possibly have come forth. As is the case with the above farmer, the whole mentality of contraception birth control is plainly un-natural. Again we are reminded that: "No murderers will inherit the kingdom of heaven." (Gal 5:20-21)
The current state of the institutional Church in America is best described in the words of Ezekiel 23: 36-39. Verse 39 says,
Once we understand the things revealed in the above chart, we can then understand these scriptures as they relate to us today. Do you not know that your body is a temple (sanctuary) of The Holy Spirit? ......... Therefore honor God with your body. (1 Cor 6:19-20)
Potentially, more babies die during Sunday morning services in America, than are murdered by all the nations abortionists added together (known in the Bible as "priests of molech and baal"), during the other six days of the week (please refer to the above chart). Many who call themselves "pro-life" are entangled in this spiritual stronghold and are deceived and deceiving others by their "good works" which are at best"Anti-Abortion", but definitely not "Pro-Life." Presently, they are among those named in Rev 9:21 who "repented not of their murders nor of their sorceries (sorcery: pharmaceutical murder) nor of their immorality nor of their thefts. (thefts: allowing their children to be vaccinated with vaccines derived from a child who was murdered and whose body parts were therefore stolen)".
The book of Mark chapter 15 and verse 33 records how at the crucifixion of Christ "From the sixth hour until the ninth hour darkness came over all the land." and this is a fulfillment of Amos chapter 8 verse 9. The moon has no light of its own, but rather it reflects the light of the sun to the children of the night. The nation of Israel was God's moon bringing His light to the nations. Whereas the above passage was clearly fulfilled by 70 A.D. in that the religious authorities of Israel who had crucified the Son of God and whom had the grace of God extended to them for some 40 years (Matt 24:34 this generation), they could not be brought to repentance. They had even become the most wicked generation that ever existed, according to one of their very own, a devout and respected Jewish historian named Joesephus. They had become the carcass upon which the Roman eagles would gather (Matt. 24:28). Similarly, after the tribulation of those days mentioned above, The Church, The New Moon, (notice there is no new sun), has no light of it's own but rather reflects the light of our Lord Jesus Christ (the light of the world) to those around us who are still living in darkness. Yet, because of the wide spread acceptance of "contraception birth control" (most all of which is abortafacient) in the institutional church, the moon is once again already turned to blood.
As with the complete destruction of Jerusalem and its temple in 70 A.D. with not a stone being left upon a stone (Matt. 24:2) thereby bringing an end to "the great tribulation", it is surely once again as in the day of Noah, except this time it is a flood of blood.
Please join with us in the distribution of an article (click and print), written that pastors, elders, and all those in charge of God's flock, may understand how abortion became legalized in America (Job 9:24 "when a land has been given into the hands of the wicked, God blindfolds all of its judges"), and the enormity of the chemical holocaust that is presently taking place in the institutional Church. Some estimates are in excess of 20,000,000 American babies per year that are killed through the use of so called "birth control and contraception". This figure (as shown in the above chart ) does NOT include the 1,500,000 babies that the priests of baal and molech, (the abortionist baby bullies) murder each year in the USA. Jesus tells us to "First remove the plank in your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye". This article scripturally deals with the root of legalized abortion and the answer.
Of all the many sins mentioned in The Bible, God's word declares the sacrificing of our children to baal or molech, known as abortion or contraception birth control in our society, as THE sin of the Church.
In the March 28th, 1998 issue of "World" magazine, under the heading "Who's calling the tune? "by Mindy Belz, (you can read the entire article by going to www.worldmag.com and search in the archives) we read that World Relief Ministry, which is the international assistance arm of the (N.A.E.) National Association of Evangelicals USA , is promoting contraception birth control, sterilization of women (tubal ligation), and condom distribution. The article goes on to say that they are not the only Christian Ministry involved in this devilish work, and names World Vision also for its distribution of condoms, birth control pills and copper IUD's. (Note: copper IUD's are 100% abortifacient and the regular birth control pill acts as an abortifacient (murder) some of the time.)
Please refer again to the above chart regarding the abortifacient nature of IUD's and Pills.
Here is a 211 "Little White Cross" 40 Days For Life Cemetery at St. Anthony The Abbott Church in Brookville Florida, and it cost less than $150 for the materials. Each Cross represents 1 child killed each day in the state of Florida. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to participate in this much needed ministry to our communities.
During the month of January each year, Churches in the Longview area of East Texas erect "cemeteries of the innocents" to cry out to their communities regarding the shedding of innocent blood. The statistics for the state of Texas report that approximately 208 children are terrorized and brutalized by abortion each day in that state, and so during January each year, many Churches in Texas erect 208 little white crosses on their own Church property and they usually place a sign along side, offering help to any and all who pass by. This ministry crosses all denominational lines and is the trumpet call of God to the local community as the entire Church speaks with one clear voice at the beginning of each year and especially during the week of January 22nd, the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. Over the years, lives have been reconciled and saved as Our Lord Jesus brings forth the fruit from the work of our hands.
Would you like to erect a Cemetery of Innocents and participate in this ministry?
When the U.S. congress was about to pass the F.A.C.E. legislation (freedom of access to clinic entrances, 1994), a particular western states senator, who at that time would have been described as "pro-life", but lately is revealed as just being "anti-abortion", stood up on the floor and said "let us give the same protection to the Churches as we are about to give to the abortion clinics" (to paraphrase). All of a sudden, The Holy Spirit began to speak to me the things revealed in this testimony.
( The above poem was e-mailed to us at Life.Org with permission granted to publish it in its entirety.)If you should find yourself condemned by the above poem rather than convicted by it, we pray that you will come to know the un-deserved love that God has for all of us prodigal children, and especially for you right now. "For God has bound all men over to disobedience so that He may have mercy on them all" (Romans 11:32 NIV). I encourage you to come and kneel with me at the foot of Calvary's Cross and be washed in the blood of Our Savior Jesus Christ. The debt for all of our sins is already paid in full. He came to set the captives free, making sinners into saints.

To define "person" we just need to break the word down to "per" and "Son". This should be pretty simple to understand. When God The Son (Jesus Christ) came to earth, He was clearly one of us, a human being, and thereby a further proof that all of the human race are made in the image and likeness of God. Jesus Christ, God's Son, perfectly meets the "likeness" of God described in the book of Genesis, "let Us make man in Our image and likeness (Gen 1:26)". Colossians 1:15-19 tells us that "He (Christ) is the image of the invisible God". Therefore anyone in His image and likeness is (per God The Son) a person.
This was yet another beautiful reason why God came to earth as a conception. If we had the technology (ultrasound) back when Mary was pregnant with Jesus (God The Son) and compared His development (baby "A") in the womb of Mary with the development of any other baby of simlilar gestation (baby "b"), we would immediately be able to declare that baby "b" was per Baby "A" in development, per Son, a person. Thus we can most assuredly proclaim the personhood of the pre-born from the moment of fertilization.Truly, we are once again at Pentecost where the multitude gathered hear God's Word in their very own language (Acts 2:8).
Addendum: Life.Org is spoken of as a one issue ministry. Our answer to that is: we certainly are. That one issue is The Testimony of our Lord Jesus Christ in His people, The Church Universal, one Body regardless of the hindrance of denomination. For although there are presently many churches, there is but One Body, His resurrected Body and that now belongs to Christ's wife, for the husband's body is not his own, it belongs to his wife and therefore she is now also seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Those who are purchased at Calvary and continually sprinkled by The Blood of The Lamb, and who "marry" our Lord Jesus through baptism into His death and burial, are thereby given His Name to live in this world. At our first birth we broke our mother's water but because Christ is risen, we also come forth a second time through the water of baptism into a brand new world, for "behold, I make all things new". It is then we find that the water of God's Word, the Bible, breaks open for us also, and we experience a resurrection and re-birth of The Spirit of Our Lord Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit, to begin the journey of being transformed by the renewing of our minds and being daily filled with all the fullness of God unto a full grown man. We seek the full and complete recovery of His Testimony in His redeemed. Jesus Christ is our doctrine. It is Him we seek to learn and live, preach, teach and confess to all, that He has come in the flesh, our own flesh (2 John 7). That He may be glorified in His Church, Christ in us, and we a bride who is one with her Husband in every way. A bride without a spot, a wrinkle or a blemish, until He is all and in all. In other words, the Gospel of God is that we are saved to be conformed to the image of His Son; "unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ." (Eph 4:13; Gen 1:26)
