    Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come.”   Luke 17:1

    “If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.”    Matthew 5:29

    Headline: Texas father blocked from stopping gender transition of son James, 7, to girl called Luna

    The mother “has advocated for James to transition into Luna and has strongly backed the idea of chemically castrating her son and beginning hormone replacement therapy.”

    [Editor: Texas courts just decided the father does have a say in the child’s future; he has been awarded joint conservatorship with the mother.)

    Headline: Planned Parenthood was just forced to admit in court to harvesting aborted fetal parts

    “ . . . a Planned Parenthood official admitted to harvesting aborted fetal parts for the purpose of selling them to human tissue procurement companies.”

    Headline:  Babies can feel the abortionist ripping them apart: here’s the scientific evidence

    “In 2017, suicide was the second leading cause of death for children aged 10 to 14, teenagers 15 to 19, and young adults ages 20-24.”

    For behold, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrow on the string to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart.  If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?  The LORD is in His holy temple; the LORD is on His heavenly throne. His eyes are watching closely; they examine the sons of men.     Psalm 11: 2-4
