Dear Friends,

As the movement for life and human dignity advances, the consternation of the Left only increases. Consider:

"With the closure of two more abortion clinics and a third on the brink of shutting down, Ohio women will have fewer places to terminate pregnancies than perhaps any time since the years after the Roe v. Wade ruling in 1973."

This report from the Columbus (OH) Dispatch almost has the tone of a lament. Yet for those of us who value the sanctity of life from conception to natural death, the closure of abortuaries means that unborn lives will be saved and women will be treated with greater dignity.

We celebrate the growing erosion of the abortion-on-demand mentality that has claimed far too much of the American mind since Roe. Yet even as we continue to make strides in the battle for life, the battle for marriage shows no sign of immediate victory. Lifting the confusion over human sexuality, marriage, and male/female complementarianism remains an enormous challenge for social conservatives.

The bottom line is simple: The Bible calls Christians to be wise, gentle, strong, and faithful. We use our best judgment, seek actively to obey the God of Scripture, and then leave the results to Him. Knowing and practicing those truths creates hope and animates action. The Triumphant One will not be defeated, even if we experience setbacks in our fallen, finite world.

So, with His strengthening grace, let's get to work.
