Know the Truth, Be Informed:
The Great Stem Cell Debate: Understanding the Basics: Proponents of embryonic stem cell research often cite all the potentials of research, but they fail to mention that a HUMAN LIFE is DESTROYED every time stem cells are removed from an embryo. The goals of this research are noble, but that doesn’t mean that we should abandon our respect for human life to attain these goals. It is never ethically correct to sacrifice the life of one human for research to save another. This kind of thinking was used by Nazi scientists and during syphilis experiments on African-Americans in Tuskegee, Alabama. With treatments from adult stem cells already being used and advances in iPS cell research showing great potential, human life does NOT need to be destroyed for stem cell treatments or cures. Through Adult Stem Cell Research diseases of the heart, kidney, bone, blood, liver, eyesight, and neural are being treated as wells as some cancers.
RTLHA Annual 5k Walk/Run
Speaking out on the prolife issues is important!
The importance of Christians and church leaders speaking out on prolife issued cannot be understated! When a congregation or a group of Christians know that abortion is wrong and HEALING from past abortions can be experienced, a true respect for all life (from conception to natural death) can and will be achieved. By remaining silent and inactive on these issue of abortion, we continue the pain of hurting women and men! Silence on abortion, euthanasia, or stem cell transplant/human cloning can send the wrong message. RTLHA clearly speaks out against these atrocities but with love and highlighting the sanctity of ALL human life. We also share that God FORGIVES and HEALS!
While the Bible does not mention abortion or euthanasia it clearly states the value of life. (NIV)
Psalms 127: 3 – Children are a heritage from the Lord…
Luke 1: 15 – …for he (John the Baptist) will bring be a joy and delight to you and many will rejoice… \
Matthew 5: 19 – Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches the commands will be called great in the kingdom of Heaven.
Matthew 22: 37-40 – Jesus replied, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Matthew 25: 40 – “the King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these my brothers of mine, you did for me’… .
1 John 2: 4-6 – The man who says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But if anyone obeys his word, God’s love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in Him. Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.
Matthew 5:14-16 – “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
