    Leading People to Christ Requires Good Leadership

    In this podcast, J. Warner talks about the importance of leadership for those of us who hope to share the truth about Jesus. When most of us think about evangelism, we think of the importance of apologetics or understanding how to articulate the Gospel. We often overlook the role of good leadership. But if you hope to lead someone to Christ, you’ll need to become a good leader.

Abortion

I just listened to your abortion episode and appreciated you going through ways to debate an individual coming from the pro-choice side. I would love to hear your take on IVF and surrogacy. Thank you for all you do!

Teddy bears and babies

I have a memory from when I was young.

I was in church. My mom was Sunday school teacher.

I was in a car seat I top of a round table.

There were children all around the table.

I was looking around at the kids.

My mom started reading a story book about Moses. I clearly remember the illustrations and the story.

As my mom was reading, I remember being jealous because these other kids had my mom’s attention, and I did t want to share her attention with them.

I reasoned through, however, that it wasn’t right for me to fuss because these kids needed to learn a book out Jesus as much as I did.

So I CHOSE not to fuss in order to demand my moms personal attention.

I told my mom about that memory.

She was like “What?”
Then explained that I was only about 6 months old and that she only taught Sunday school once….and that she had read a story about Moses…which she still has the book.

Nursery school is sooooooo important. And should not be a baby sitting service that church provides for the parents. Because babies can reason.

So I agree that babies have a moral understanding from the beginning.

Remember the story in the Bible of the baby that was take by the lord ? The baby was a decent of the kings house, but God took the baby because he delighted in the bay and did t want it to be destroyed by the depravity that was taking place in the Jewish leadership at that time.

My personality changed when I was pregnant with each of my children.
And when they were born, I saw how I was feeling being presented in their behaviors.

The foods I couldn’t eat were the foods they were either allergic to or that they didn’t like as they got older.

It’s quite interesting.

Consider the heart.

The heart cannot beat without the brainstem.

There are children born with ONlY a brainstem. These children show observationally that they know they exist. They express who they want, even when they are both blind and deaf.

A man in his 40s went to the dr with strange headaches. They did scans and discovered he had no brain. He had been born with only a brainstem. He lives a normal life with the exception of learning struggles in school.

If a person can know they exist with only a brainstem, then, i hypothesize, it is b wry possible that by the time the brainstem is existing in the human body, that the novel person n the womb is already aware of his/her own existence. And we therefore, do not have the right to determine that they ought not exist. (Regardless of the issue except the mothers life….which only she can decide- like a mother in a house fire would decide to run into a burning room to save her child at the risk of her own life…or be forced to walk away.)

Although I THINK life begins at conception, I just wanted to point out when a person can begin to learn, starting with the reality that they exist.

That’s all I wanted to say.

Thank you.
