Disability

Infanticide is old news. Very, very old news.

Other forms of nature are being elevated to human status. What do we do? 

Are sinners made in God's image? What about people with severe disabilities? Are we given His image at birth?

Is it proper, or even helpful, to excuse sick and dying people from worship?

Dementia & the hope of God's remembrance

What is life worth when there is no God? What is it worth when there is?

Dr. William Toffler, MD, an Oregon physician, recognizes how important it is to listen for what is not being said. How well physicians listen and respond to their patients "has a profound effect... on their view of themselves and their inherent worth."

Other than perhaps Kumbaya, it's difficult to find a hymn or gospel song strongly emphasizing brotherly care -- especially ones that so powerfully creates a picture for us of carrying one another on this long journey of life. Most of our hymns (very appropriately) sing to or about God, but isn't the second greatest commandment something to sing about as well?

Once upon a time not that long ago “everyone” knew with scientific certainty that human life began at conception. A mere three years after this editorial was written, “semantic gymnastics” made abortion-on-demand the law of the land. Would that pro-death people today could be as honest and forthright about their tactics. 

God's word urges us to treat the disabled person as our neighbor, to watch out for them as a brother.

The account of the man born blind in John 9 is indicative of attitudes toward people with disabilities in Jesus’ day.
