Caylee Anthony - Two Sides of Murder?


The reaction of most people over the Casey Anthony issue that is currently in the news is almost unanimous. This girl killed her 2 year old daughter! This despite the fact that the authorities have yet to find the body of any baby. The mother’s reaction certainly have had much to do with the universal thought that she knows much about the baby’s demise, particularly her statement early in the search process, when she whined about the fact that “all anyone cares about is finding Caylee” (the missing toddler). Rightfully so, most observers see this as nothing but pure selfishness.

I for one agree wholeheartedly that this woman shows a distinct disinterest in finding her little girl. The portrait of her life appears to be one of a self-absorbed young woman for whom it would not be a stretch to think that she would view a baby as a distraction or worst a “punishment” as Barack Obama has said.

The Barack Obama assessment brings me to the point of this post. If Casey Anthony had gotten rid of her little girl in 2005 vs. 2008, many of those jeering her now would have a very different view about her. Whereas here in the summer of 2008 many think that Casey Anthony did kill little Caylee, if she had had the foresight to have done so only three years earlier, many would have said that Casey Anthony made “her rightful choice" to abort little Caylee. In 2005, little Caylee Anthony would have had no one to care that she is no more.

This highlights the breathtaking incoherence of the pro-abortion position. Little Caylee Anthony was the same person in 2005 and 2008. A beautiful little girl growing up. Now possibly due to the willful act of her mother, Caylee Anthony may indeed be no more.

Funerals for the Unsaved or Unbelievers

I am not a leader of a church, but I oftentimes wonder how does one lead a funeral service for someone who dies without knowing Jesus Christ as Lord? Admittedly I have not been to many funerals in my lifetime, though they are appearing to come more frequently lately, but the fact is that funerals are held daily throughout the world and as such this is a pertinent question to someone just about every day.

I’ve been to the funeral where the person lived a fairly routine life, taking care of their families and other responsibilities as best they could, paying taxes and doing the average things that we as human beings do on a consistent basis. They however had no visible relationship with God through His son Jesus Christ. When this person dies, the surviving family members are oftentimes left scrambling trying to find a person and a place to officiate the funeral services – generally because the deceased did not have a regular church that they attended. Funeral homes sometimes serve this f…

Scripture: Are You a Wheat or Weed?

(Matthew 23: 24-30 NIV): Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’ ‘‘An enemy did this,’ he replied. “The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’ ‘‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”

(Matthew 23: 36-43 NIV): Then he left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.” He answered, “The…

Hal Lindsay off TBN

Christian author and broadcaster Hal Lindsay removed his weekly Christian television news broadcast "The International Intelligence Briefing" from the programming lineup on The Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) after network officials notified him that his shows would now be subject to pre-screening for censorship prior to broadcast approval. This unusual step was the result of TBN’s disapproval of a Lindsay broadcast in December 2005, which the network said was too inflammatory towards Muslims.

I have reviewed the transcript of Mr. Lindsay's broadcast and I find nothing in it’s content that is not backed up by God’s scripture, nor did I find anything that would be considered overly zealous or purposefully sensational with respect to potential attacks on Muslims. To the extent that TBN, one of the most widely available Christian TV networks would take this position is quite incredulous. One of the reasons for the need for ‘Christian’ TV networks is to enable the presenta…
