Is God Committed to Your Happiness? – If you have ever wondered.

Quote:

The final goal of the blessed life, moreover, rests in the knowledge of God [cf. John 17:3]. Lest anyone, then, be excluded from access to happiness, he not only sowed in men’s minds that seed of religion of which we have spoken but revealed himself and daily discloses himself in the whole workmanship of the universe. As a consequence, men cannot open their eyes without being compelled to see him. Indeed, his essence is incomprehensible; hence, his divineness far escapes all human perception. But upon his individual works he has engraved unmistakable marks of his glory, so clear and so prominent that even unlettered and stupid folk cannot plead the excuse of ignorance…in the creation of the universe he brought forth those insignia whereby he shows his glory to us, whenever and wherever we cast our gaze…wherever you cast your eyes, there is no spot in the universe wherein you cannot discern at least some sparks of his glory. – John Calvin

The Gosnell Trial News Blackout

Denny Burk brings to light the apparent news blackout over Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s current trial.  If infanticide had taken place in Asia or Africa on the scale that it happened in this doctors office, the news media would be all over it, but it didn’t, it happened here, here in America and no one is saying much about it.  Watch the video documentary and read the blog post from Denny Burk, then pray.  Pray for wisdom, pray for mercy, pray that this inestimable crime would be brought to it’s true light and that people, even those hardened by sin, would see the hypocrisy of what is known as abortion rights.

Here is another link from The Gospel Coalition that gives some more facts.

USA Today has an article asking why more media coverage isn’t being devoted to this trial.

Charles Krauthammer has a video worth watching.

All I have to say is that if you don’t think the main stream media is biased, this should give you a reason to rethink that.
