A death in the family

In your kindness, please pray for the repose of the soul of my sister-in-law, Tammy (married to my brother Andrew). I just learned that she died in her sleep last night of what appear to be natural causes. Tammy was only 30, and though she had had some illnesses in recent years, this was completely unexpected. As you can imagine, our family, especially Andrew, is in a state of shock. Thank you for your prayers .

The new atrocity: three-parent embryos

As I read this bizarre and disturbing news item regarding how
mad scientists have successfully performed a "3-person in vitro fertilization" ("eighty embryos were created but destroyed after eight days"), a warning from the Lord Jesus Christ came to my mind:
"Truly, I say to you, it shall be more tolerable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah than for that town" (Matt. 10:15).
Now, instead of a "town" in which evil and immorality is practiced on a wide scale, this blight has overcome an entire civilization. Woe to us if we don't turn away from this kind of nightmarish meddling with God's creation — and soon. And, to be candid, at times like this, I am inclined to think that it may already be too late.
