This is a lecture given by Pastor Matt Trewhella at a church conference on March 14, 2015, in Wausau, Wisconsin.
For decades now pro-life groups have nibbled around the edges of abortion. They spend huge amounts of money and people volunteer huge amounts of time - only to have a federal court trample their nibblings. Then the whole process starts again - with the same outcome once again. Many have wearied and left the field of battle because of it.
This lecture is a call to end the status quo through application of the doctrine of the lesser magistrates. 45 min. MercySeat.net

Great Sermon! "There are many ways of abetting; urge and help on, or taking part in the sins of others; by commendation, counsel, consent, or concealment [silence]. And if we share with others in their sins, we must expect to share in their plagues. If we do not reprove the sins of others, we have fellowship with them. A good man will be ashamed to speak of what many wicked men are not ashamed to do. We must have not only a sight and a knowledge that sin is sin, and in some measure shameful, but see it as a breach of God's holy law. After the example of prophets and apostles, we should call on those asleep and dead in sin, to awake and arise, that Christ may give them light."
Mark M (4/19/2015)
Great Sermon! A very interesting and timely message for the day we live in. I have just finished reading the book which I thought to be excellent. A challenge to us all. Thank you.
