The film focuses on anti-abortion activist Abby Johnson, who spent years working for Planned Parenthood before switching sides.

A $6 million anti-abortion film that takes a critical look at Planned Parenthood recently wrapped after being shot in secret in Oklahoma, and the filmmakers behind such surprise hits as God’s Not Dead and I Can Only Imagine are hoping for similar success when they release the movie wide next year.

The movie is called Unplanned and the narrative focuses on the story of Abby Johnson, who was a clinic director at Planned Parenthood who says she helped facilitate 22,000 abortions before quitting the organization in 2009 after watching via ultrasound as one was performed.

Theology Gals: Girl Wash Your Face, Not So Great

September 17, 2018 | Author:

Theology Gals give some critical insight in their review of popular book, “Girl wash your face.”

“The gospel is not in this book, in fact a patently false gospel is in this book”

“This is a book that the bulk of what is present is contrary to what we should be focusing on as Christians. The bulk of what is being taught in this book is self-reliance, it’s the opposite of what we should be doing as believers. And so, the problem is that it is not just, Ir may not be overtly saying, “Hey, read me. I am a book about theology. You might disagree on a few points.” It is, first of all pretending to not be theology but it is chock full of theology. It’s pretending to just be advice but it is full of new thought philosophy which is completely contrary to what we believe as Christians. We’re supposed to be focusing on Philippians 4:8,9 which tells us what to focus on.

” Finally, brethren whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute—if there is any excellence and anything worth of praise—dwell on these things. The things that you have heard and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things and the God of peace will be with you.”

So I think about this book and the very first thing right out of the gate in this verse is, “whatever is true.” There is a lot in this book that is flat out not true. You aren’t in control. A vision board is not going to make your dreams come true. These things are not true. These things are not right. It’s not pure and honestly if people are believing in those things because they have come to the book from the point of view that, “Hey this isn’t teaching me theology so it’s fine,” I think that this just opens the door to being led astray and accepting doctrine which is packaged as ‘not doctrine’ certainly, but it’s still doctrine and so that is what I think makes books like these dangerous.

This is not a book, ladies where you can take the good and leave the bad. The entire premise of this book is flawed.”

Flanders: Don’t Waste Your Girl Power

August 29, 2018 | Author:

Courtesy Stacey Bradshaw, Actress facebook page

We hear a lot about female empowerment these days…but how should we define it? What does an empowered woman really look like?

Is she wealthy? Is she world-famous?

Does she radiate prestige? Does she command the respect of her peers? Does she carry political clout?

Is she her own woman? Completely autonomous? Answers to no one?

Is girl power something she wears like a badge? Or wields like a weapon?
Would we even recognize an empowered woman if we met her on the street?

Maybe. Maybe not.

In the past half-century, women have spent so much time focused on fighting for equality and closing the perceived gender gap that much of the very real power unique to our sex has been lost: relinquished, squandered, forgotten, or ignored.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Girls are smart. We have brains. We can think.

And when we notice — as of late so many have — that the proverbial baby has been tossed out with the bathwater, we have sense enough to retrieve it. We can learn from past mistakes — both the mistakes we’ve made individually, as well as the mistakes made by the generations ahead of us — and change course as needed.

The battle for sexual equality has morphed into a full-blown attack on common sense and decency. Regardless what popular pundits of feminism may argue, being equal in worth and value is not the same as being identical in nature and function.

Thomas: Honoring Does Not Mean Giving Others Everything They Want

July 30, 2018 | Author:

There are times when you have to do hard things to those whom you love. You do these things because it’s the best way to honor them. Honoring others does not mean letting them run all over you.

Hargraves: Is “Manly Dominance” Biblical?: A Response to Shalom Pearl Brand

July 27, 2018 | Author:

In her post Shalom speaks to the importance of training our children to be good husbands and wives. That is well, fine, and good, but it is when she, in true Pearl fashion, goes on to explain exactly what that would look like that I quickly became disturbed at the extremely unBiblical nature of what she was claiming to be “Biblical” manhood (and, in a small portion of her post, womanhood, as well).

Desiring God: The Hardest Part of Mothering

July 7, 2018 | Author:

No one warned me. No one told me that after training our children to sleep through the night, after helping them learn the ways of kindness and the value of hard work, after teaching them the joy of reading and the delight of knowing the living word, after determining to most gladly spend and be spent for their souls, no one told me that the hardest part of mothering was still ahead — the part when they leave.

DW: EMPOWERING: Mom Loses Ovaries, Toes, Uterus After IUD Ends Up In Stomach

June 15, 2018 | Author:

Tanai Smith, of Baltimore, has shared her story with several outlets hoping to help other women. (GoFundMe)

A 25-year-old woman lost her ovaries, uterus, and even her toes due to an implanted IUD that forced its way into her stomach and then liver, according to Fox News.

Tanai Smith, of Baltimore, said she implanted the IUD after the birth of her daughter in 2014 after learning it would work for up to five years. Upon visiting her gynecologist in October 2017, however, she learned that those “side effects” they talk about in all those IUD commercials might apply in her case.

AV: Egalitarianism’s dirty secret: the sexual objectification of women

May 10, 2018 | Author:

God is not an egalitarian. That is not a controversial statement. Neither is saying that the strong should protect the weak. These statements border on the obvious, yet the implications of these ideas can be controversial. The sexual objectification of women, and women specifically, is a sin worthy of being looked at closely precisely because men are the stronger vessel. Objectification and sexual objectification can be perpetrated by anyone. However, because egalitarianism is false, the risk to the weaker vessel is far more significant, and the strength of the stronger vessel comes with a greater responsibility—an important and often neglected responsibility. This article seeks to define terms and show that sexual objectification is indeed and issue Christians need to take seriously. The responsibility that Christians, especially men, have regarding the sexual objectification of women will come in a follow-up article.

Family Matters: Our best lessons are taught by example

February 28, 2018 | Author:

The lack of a good example leaves a gaping hole in many folks’ understanding of what, exactly, constitutes a good marriage. At the same time, society has tossed out any kind of Biblical standard as to how husband/wife relationships were designed to work, so now we have the blind leading the blind.

Even more alarming, the blind have started calling good evil and evil good.

In my day, when a man was accused of abuse, it usually meant drunken rages and physical bruises – or something equally shocking, selfish, cowardly, and evil. But by today’s standard, if a man holds the door open for a woman, he’s being sexist. If a husband shows his wife too much attention, he’s controlling. Too little, he’s ignoring her. I’ve even read of one bizarre court case where a husband was charged with battery for working late.

Warhorn Media – When Bitterness Accompanies Infertility

January 18, 2018 | Author:

I can’t tell you how often I am comforted by the stories of women in the bible who also struggled with infertility. I’m comforted by them because when I look at Hannah who was mistaken as a drunkard in her pleading to God for a child, I feel less crazy for feeling so sad. I’m comforted by Sarah who spent her young married life all the way to old age longing for a child. When I see her laugh at hearing she would finally have a son, I see the great mothers of faith also struggled against bitterness. But I’m strengthened by this because Sarah grew in faith and walked in repentance.

Sarah’s longing for a child was good. Her bitterness in not having one in her timing was not. It’s the seeds of bitterness, anger, discontentment I have to fight against. But Sarah was not only considered a mother to Isaac, she was even more significantly a mother of many nations.

Motherhood comes in many forms. Every woman created by God should desire children. Should desire to be a mother. Motherhood is built into the very fibers of our beings as women.

“Now the man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all the living.” (Genesis 3:20)

I find myself asking, If God does not give me physical children, then how else might I be a mother?

Murder Made Easy for the Microwave Generation

January 2, 2018 | Author:

The Daily Wire Reports: Unlike pro-life and religious organizations, the feminist movement has rejected the idea of helping women with unplanned pregnancies to overcome the obstacles in their paths and ensure a healthy life for them and their children. Instead, they’re actively pushing to normalize the murder of unborn babies and promoting the most efficient ways to do it.

A new abortion device called SofTouch, which was featured in feminist magazine Glamour on Sunday, can kill an unborn baby up to 12-weeks gestation “in just three minutes.” Less developed babies can apparently be killed in a mere 60-seconds. (more…)
