James 2 – True Faith Impartial & Planned Parenthood

Due to the overpopulation of China their government does not allow people to have more than one child. 

Our government could make a law that only the wealthy can have babies and would probably force the poor to take the injection of the “hCG and Anti-hCG Antibodies” we talked about yesterday.

Yet, if they did that Planned Parenthood would lose money.  They’ll probably just tax parents per child, and if they are poor the tax will be higher.

It is more than obvious that Bill and Melinda Gates and Planned Parenthood are against God. 

The below article points that out,

Planned Parenthood endorses the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education, which recommends teaching five year olds about masturbation, and nine year olds about homosexuality and the benefits of watching porn.

And many elementary schools across the country are doing just that.  So tomorrow we’re going to look at…

James 2
True Faith Impartial

1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.

“Faith…with respect of persons” – God doesn’t show favoritism, nor should we.

God did have His favorites, like Abraham and Moses and David.  Yet, even though they were His favorites (He called them friends), He didn’t love them anymore than anyone else.

Just like many parents that have numerous kids, they may enjoy one of them more than the others, but they don’t love him or her any more than the others.

2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;

3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:

4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?

5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?

2:5-13 –  James gives three arguments against showing favoritism to the rich:

1. The rich persecute the poor – the believers.
2. Favoritism violates the royal law of love and thus is sin.
3. Favoritism will be judged.

6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?

7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?

8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself, ye do well:

“Royal law” – the law of love (Lev 19:18) is called “royal” because it is the supreme law that is the source of all other laws governing human relationships.  It is the summation of all such laws (Matt 2:36-40; Rom 13:8-10).

We are taught that the United States Constitution is the Law of the Land, but it’s not, God’s law is and God’s law does not allow abortion and homosexuality.

9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.

10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

“Guilty of all” – the law is the expression of the character and will of God; therefore to violate one part of the law is to violate God’s will and thus His whole law.

11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.

12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.

“Judged” – this judgment is not for determining eternal destiny, for James is speaking to believers whose destiny is already determined (unless they are found guilty of Heb 6:4-6, 10:26-27).  Rather it is for giving rewards to believers.

13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.

“Mercy rejoiceth against judgment” – if man is merciful, God will be merciful on the day of judgment.

14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? Can faith save him?

2:14-26 – in vv. 14-20, 24, 26 “faith” is not used in the sense of genuing faith.  Rather, it is demonic, useless and dead.  It is a mere intellectual acceptance of certain truths without trust in Christ as Savior.

James is also not saying that a person is saved by works and not by genuine faith.  Rather, he is saying, to use Martin Luther’s words (not Martin Luther King) words, that a man is justified (declared righteous before God) by faith alone, but not by a faith that is alone.

Genuine faith will produce good deeds, but only faith in Christ saves.

Anyone that believes that Jesus was born of a virgin, was crucified, resurrected and is our Savior is saved, IF they worship Jesus and only Jesus. 

Rick Warren and Billy Graham had once been saved, but by their “works” they may have lost it, I’m not God so I don’t know, but see Heb 6:4-6; 10:26-27.

Oprah, Obama, Gates, and Buffet. are not saved, and never were.

15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,

2:15-16 – this illustration of false faith is parallel to the illustration of false love found in 1 Jn 3:17.  The latter passage calls for love in action; this one calls for faith in action.

16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?

17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

“Thou hast faith, and I have works” – the false claim is that there are “faith” Christians and “works” Christians, i.e., that faith and deeds can e4dist independently of each other.

19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

“There is one God” – a declaration of monotheism that reflects the well-known Jewish creed called in Hebrew the Shema, meaning “Hear” (Deut 6:4; Mk 12:29).

20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

“Faith without works is dead” – if you have true faith in Jesus Christ, but preach a different gospel then the works that you do violate God and therefore your faith is invalid.

Like Rick Warren is doing, trying to start Chrislam, saying that the Muslims and the Christians  believe in the same God.

21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?

“Justified by works” – if Abraham would not have obeyed God’s order to sacrifice Isaac then he would be without “works.”

22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?

23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.

“He was called a Friend” – Abraham was one of God’s favorites, but He didn’t love him anymore than us.

24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?

“Rahab the harlot” – Rahab’s occupation was against God, but her saving the spies proved her faith, which saved her (Heb 11:31).

26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Planned Parenthood

Watch this disturbing video which shows that racism still plays a role in the abortion industry today…

Anderson was hired by the clinic in 2010. Her job was to provide patients with “conscious sedation,” which consisted of providing intravenous sedatives and anesthesia to women who were about to have their abortions.
She reveals that the Planned Parenthood clinic injured a number of women while she worked there:

Several times, there were difficulties with abortions while I worked there, where they had to call the hospital to come pick the woman up. … A lot of the cases we had were from excessive bleeding or reactions to the sedation.

One was particularly serious:

One girl almost bled out. She was passing clots, [and] her blood pressure was dropping.

The clinic workers were instructed not to mention the word “abortion” when they called for an ambulance.

When we had to call 911 for an ambulance, we were told never to say the word “abortion” because they don’t want that broadcast. They knew that the calls were recorded, and could be made public.

They were trying to hide their abortion complications from pro-lifers in this manner, because pro-lifers often make use of 911 calls in order to document cases of malpractice in the abortion industry.

A former Planned Parenthood worker has opened up to a diocesan newspaper in a gripping tell-all interview, saying she was shocked at the horrors she witnessed during the two years she worked in Indiana’s largest abortion facility.

Marianne Anderson is a nurse who assisted Planned Parenthood abortionists by partially sedating women who paid extra for that luxury.  She told The Criterion newspaper that she saw many women pressured into abortions they did not want, including minor girls.

You can read the complete interview with Anderson here

One young girl came in with her mom, Anderson told the paper.  She was about 16. Her mom had made the appointment. That’s not supposed to be how it works. It’s supposed to only be the patient who makes the appointment.

I checked her in, and she thought she was there for a prenatal checkup. The mom was pushing it. She blindsided her own daughter.

Another time, said Anderson,

This guy brought in a Korean girl. I had no doubt in my mind this girl was a sex slave. This guy would not leave her side. They could barely communicate. He wanted to make all the arrangements. 

During the ultrasound, she told one of the nurses that there were lots of girls in the house, and that the man hits them. She never came back for the abortion. I always wondered what happened to her.

One of my co-workers said, ‘You’re better off to just let it go.’”

When women cried during the abortion procedure, Anderson said, abortionist Michael King would shame them. “These girls would start crying on the table, and Dr. King would say, ‘Now you chose to be here. Sit still. I don’t have time for this.”

One doctor, when he was in the POC [products of conception] room, would talk to the aborted baby while looking for all the parts. “Come on, little arm, I know you’re here! Now you stop hiding from me!”

It just made me sick to my stomach, Anderson said. The sound the suction machine made when it turned on still haunts me.

Anderson told The Criterion she started working at the facility because she believed that as long as women were having abortions, they should be safe about it.

But Anderson quickly abandoned her illusions of safety once she began work at Planned Parenthood. 

I started feeling uneasy working there when people came from national in New York City to teach us the conscious sedation process, Anderson told the paper. 

It was disgusting. These two ladies had this chant they would do: “Abortion all the time!” I thought, “I’ve got to get out of here.” That was about six to eight months after I started.

Anderson said the overall experience of working for Planned Parenthood was “absolutely miserable.”

It was a money-grubbing, evil, very sad, sad place to work,” she said. I was always getting in trouble for talking too long to the girls, asking if they were sure they wanted to do this.

You have to have so many [abortions] a month to stay open, Anderson said.

In our meetings they’d tell us, “If abortions are down, you could get sent home early and not get as many hours.”

Anderson finally escaped her job at Planned Parenthood with assistance from Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director who runs the charity And Then There Were None, which is dedicated to helping abortion clinic workers leave the industry.

After reading Johnson’s book Unplanned, Anderson reached out to Johnson via social media and told her she wanted to get out.

Johnson put her in touch with Eileen Hartman, a local pro-life leader who immediately jumped into action, helping Anderson polish her resume and setting up job interviews with local hospitals and doctors.

Anderson was fired by Planned Parenthood in July 2012, but was immediately hired by Community North Hospital, where she is now a nurse. 

What’s so Bad About Planned Parenthood?

For starters, consider these reasons:

1. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the United States.

While many Planned Parenthood clinics offer services that may be beneficial to a community (breast exams or pregnancy and STD testing) the problem is that they don’t stop there.

Planned Parenthood claim to be in favor of reducing the number of abortions, for every one mother they refer to an adoption agency, they abort 138 babies!

One must not forget that Planned Parenthood is a business, and they earn over 100 million dollars each year by performing abortions.

Those who work for Planned Parenthood would find it interesting that their founder, Margaret Sanger, once wrote,[

While there are cases where even the law recognizes an abortion as justifiable if recommended by a physician, I assert that the hundreds of thousands of abortions performed in America each year are a disgrace to civilization.

2. Planned Parenthood spreads the myth of safe sex.

Planned Parenthood pretends to give “medically accurate” information, yet they lobbied against the passing of Public Law 106-354.

This “Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Act” required that educational material regarding STDs like HPV shall “contain medically accurate information regarding the effectiveness or lack of effectiveness of condoms in preventing the STD the materials are designed to address.” Planned Parenthood tried to block the law from being passed because it undermined consumers’ faith in the condom.

In the words of Senator Tom Coburn,

Planned Parenthood has been part of the cover-up of one of the greatest threats ever posed to women’s health. They don’t want to talk about HPV because the only real protection against it is a lifestyle of abstinence before marriage and fidelity within marriage.

Planned Parenthood seems to find that politically unacceptable and would rather promote a strategy of denial and disinformation.

Cervical cancer caused by HPV has killed more women than AIDS in America, but Planned Parenthood refuses to put warning labels for HPV on their condoms.

However, they do print on condom labels the phone number for the local Planned Parenthood clinic. That way, when condoms fail, women can come back for an abortion, STD testing, or more birth control.

However, such women should know that Planned Parenthood distributes some of the most defective condoms on the market. In its February 2005 edition, Consumer Reports surveyed twenty-three different types of condoms to measure their effectiveness.

In last place were condoms made by Planned Parenthood, with a failure rate of fifteen percent! One of their brands received the equivalent grade of an “F” in the two standards measured: reliability and strength. So much for safe sex.

3. Planned Parenthood claims to offer “comprehensive” sex education, while withholding vital health information from teens.

When discussing birth control, Planned Parenthood downplays the side effects of each method.

For example, when discussing the birth control patch, they say, “Is the patch safe? Yes. Despite alarming stories from some news outlets, the patch has been shown to be very safe.”

What they don’t mention is that 23 deaths have been attributed to the patch, and thousands of women are suing the makers of the device.

Planned Parenthood also reassures young women that the birth control pill is safe, without mentioning that according to the Mayo Clinic, 21 of 23 studies of women who took the pill prior to having their first child showed an increased risk of breast cancer.

4. Planned Parenthood only pays lip-service to abstinence.

Even though teens who practice abstinence have substantially happier lives, Planned Parenthood won’t seriously advocate such a lifestyle because it contradicts their outdated and contorted idea of sexual “liberation.”

Why should a teen be abstinent, according to Planned Parenthood?

Some people may choose to be sexually abstinent in certain circumstances. A person who just broke up with someone might abstain from dating and sex play because being close to another person might not feel right, yet.

Elsewhere, they quote a teen as saying he’s abstinent because “The guilt I would feel would take the fun out of it.” In the end, they just recommend,

Only you can ultimately decide what is right for you and your body. Trust the messages that your mind and body give you.

In other words,

Don’t trust God, the Church, your parents, or anyone who loves you and may want what’s best for you. Trust the most reliable source for wise decision making… your hormones. And we’ll see you at Planned Parenthood soon!

It’s also worthwhile to note that Planned Parenthood makes money if teens have sex. If people saved sex for marriage, Planned Parenthood would go out of business.

Chastity means no birth control sales, no STD testing, no abortions… no business.

Planned Parenthood’s message of abstinence is so weak that Lifestyles condoms funded a grant for Planned Parenthood to make a curriculum for teaching teens about sex!

5. Planned Parenthood does not offer age-appropriate sexed information.

Planned Parenthood endorses the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education, which recommends teaching five year olds about masturbation, and nine year olds about homosexuality and the benefits of watching porn.

Again, Planned Parenthood has drifted a long way from the attitudes of their founder, who wrote,

In the boy or girl past puberty, we find one of the most dangerous forms of masturbation, i.e., mental masturbation, which consists of forming mental pictures, or thinking obscene or voluptuous pictures.

This form is considered especially harmful to the brain, for the habit becomes so fixed that it is almost impossible to free the thoughts from lustful pictures… Perhaps the greatest physical danger to the chronic masturbator is the inability to perform the sexual act naturally….

The individual promises himself over and over again after such exercises to overcome the habit, but his will power gradually becomes destroyed and the impulse continues.

He knows and intuitively feels such practice degrades him and destroys his character; he feels he is losing control of himself, and also realizes that his health, especially his nervous system, is being undermined.

In my personal experience as a trained nurse while attending persons afflicted with various and often revolting diseases, no matter what their ailments, I never found any one so repulsive as the chronic masturbator.

It would not be difficult to fill page upon page of heart-rending confessions made by young girls, whose lives were blighted by this pernicious habit, always begun so innocently.

She went on to refer to masturbation as a “perversion” of the sexual impulse.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD
4:25 PM
Jul. 18, 2012

If there is any question as to why Planned Parenthood is actively promoting President Obama, the answer is simply this:

President Obama has done more for Planned Parenthood and their pro-abortion agenda in his nearly 4 years in office than almost anyone.

The abortion giant’s president, Cecile Richards, said of Obama, “I’ve been working with this administration for the last three years on getting women better health care access [i.e. abortion, abortion funding, and mandated abortion-pill coverage] in a whole host of ways.”

Time and time again, President Obama has not only stood with Planned Parenthood, he has done everything within his power to advance their cause.

As he once famously stated of abortion, “On this fundamental issue,

I will not yield and Planned Parenthood will not yield.”

Time and time again, President Obama has come to the aid of the largest abortion provider in America.

6. Planned Parenthood lies to women.

Planned Parenthood won’t offer pregnant women ultrasounds or even attempt to adequately inform them about the development of the baby.

One young couple I know went to get an abortion when their unborn baby had brain waves, a heartbeat, toes, and fingers, and the clinic simply said that they would just be removing tissue that was “like a peanut.”

Planned Parenthood reassured the couple that there wouldn’t be any serious emotional consequences.

However, the teenage father was bawling over the lost baby months later.

Especially in cases of rape and incest, Planned Parenthood acts like abortion is a blessing. On the contrary, consider this woman’s testimony:

The trauma of the rape and abuse were only intensified by the abortion. The guilt of knowing my baby is dead is something I will have to live with for the rest of my life.

At Planned Parenthood, they pretend like regrets don’t exist.

7. Planned Parenthood protects the identity of sex offenders.

Because states have certain age restrictions on abortion, Planned Parenthood sometimes conceals the age of young girls in order to perform the operations. By doing so, they cover up cases of rape, statutory rape, and incest.

For example, in 2004, a sixteen year old girl received an abortion from Planned Parenthood in Ohio. She told them the pregnancy was the result of sexual abuse she had suffered from her father, which had been happening for four years. Because of their silence, she was sexually abused for 18 more months.

However, in May of 2007, she filed a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood, saying that they violated Ohio law by refusing to report the crime in 2004. Recorded phone calls provide evidence that Planned Parenthood has violated such laws hundreds of times.

8. Planned Parenthood mocks the Christian faith.

On their holiday greeting cards, Planned Parenthood used the slogan, “Choice on Earth” in substitution for the angel’s greeting “Peace on earth” at the arrival of Christ.

Planned Parenthood also extols the “sacredness of choice,” and argues that the Bible indicates “that Jesus was not against women having a choice in continuing a pregnancy.”

To Planned Parenthood, dismembering a baby is sacred and Jesus was pro-abortion. This continues the thought of Margaret Sanger, the woman who founded Planned Parenthood. In her book, Woman and the New Race, she wrote,

The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.

…homosexuality vs. God’s holiness.
