I received an email from an EI reader who said that Larry King will be having on Dr. Robert Schuller talking about the suicide of Johnnie Carl. I haven't been able to confirm this yet, but if I can, I'll let you know about it.
More on the Bobbie Jo Stinnett Murder
Speaking of Larry King, last night he had on his show a panel of guests who discussed the Lisa Montgomery case. You may read the Analysis of the Murder of Bobbie Jo Stinnett here. The Kansas Star today is reporting a story called Connection formed before crime that cites a year long connection before the murder. And both CBS News and The Daily Herald are praising the use of the Internet and computers to solve this crime quickly. Web Led Cops To Fetus Suspect
and Investigators followed digital trail in pregnant woman's killing
Christmas Under Attack
Unless you don't read very often you've probably never heard of The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown. Well, today I decided to put this fiction novel under the attacking Christmas category because if you attack Jesus Christ, then you're attacking Christmas. In fact, Sharon Hughes, host of Changing Worldviews is airing a show called The Truth Behind the Da Vinci Code" with Richard Abanes.
that explains the truth behind this book of lies. Please tune in and listen.
And can you believe it? WorldNetDaily is reporting today a story about the Whitehouse keeping Christ out of Christmas. Bush White House's
Christ-less Christmas Official commemorations emphasize Santa, Rudolph over Jesus in 2004. And if you want you can participate in a poll WND is doing about this situation. What do you think of the White House celebration of Christmas 2004? .
Newsmax is reporting a Christmas miracle today concerning the cross on the LA County Seal."Los Angeles County has so far wasted $1,800 in taxpayers' money to place decals over crosses on the county seal, but the censorship isn't working.
The crosses are "shining through," the Los Angeles Daily News reported today in an article it headlined "A sign of the cross miraculously reappears."
My friends at Concerned Women for America share a story called Philadelphia Will Prosecute Christian Protesters . Why? Because these Christians were preaching God’s Word to those attending the city’s “Outfest".
Applying Your Biblical Worldview
Today we have seen how the media is covering this brutal murder. The problem however, is that they never mention the soul and where Bobbie Jo ended up after her death. They also haven't discussed how Lisa Montgomery's faith could have impacted her choice to murder for this unborn child. These are ethical, moral and spiritual issues. Today I want you to think about how you would apply your biblical worldview in an analytical way to the news.
Are you willing to stand for Christ in the marketplace? Are you brave enough to say this season,"Merry Christmas"? Can you give a defense for why you believe in the virgin birth and for Jesus as God's son? Can you explain why Christmas is a Christian holiday? I hope you can, and I hope these stories show you today how important your faith in Jesus is.
Take Action: Help Bill Kennedy
Those of you who have followed EI news for a while know about Bill Kennedy and his case. For those of you who don't please visit Justice for Kennedy for more information.
In a recent email from Kennedy's attorney, Craig Parshall, Attorney Craig Parshall urges supporters of Bill to write and contact President Bush again.
From the newsletter - "Could I impose on you one more time to take some action for Bill and to aid his struggle for justice? Please call the White House at 202 - 456 - 1414 (then ask for the "comment line") or email President Bush at http://www.whitehouse.gov/webmail, and deliver a message like this one:
I am calling (writing) on behalf of William Kennedy, a prisoner in a federal prison. I am asking that President Bush grant Mr. Kennedy's petition for commutation of sentence, and that the President commute Mr. Kennedy's sentence, and release him."
Thank you friends, talk to you tomorrow and for updates throughout the day remember to visit my blog.
