| The Price is Right makes huge donation to Planned Parenthood|
The Price is Right television show has donated $100,000 to Planned Parenthood. I didn't know an individual show did this type of thing. It seems that would want to keep up their appeal to all audiences.

The price is not right, the Lord is making it clear in the sand who we should follow in our days, the masses of the world will reject the Lord and righteousness.
In the end times even amongst believers there will be an apostasy. Let us strengthen our faith and gain help from the Lord for the times that will come.
Worldwide abortions on a large scale, worldwide homosexuality, etc are just signs of the end.

It’s shameful for those whom can see it for what it is but for many it seems reasonable as the two are ideologically aligned.
Even down here in the Bible Belt things have changed,... we’ve been allowed to reopen (since Monday of this week) its been an unavoidable experience that people, most people in fact, are in a fog... as if under the influence of something,.... like being under a spell of sorts.
It’s clearly the works of the enemy- a context of confusion built on a campaign of lies is as a signet ring or finger print of his workings.
Ultimately this public action serves to signal their allegiance with a particular ideology and one that cares more for plant and animal life than human life... but honestly is it really surprising? If we who have the spirit of the living God scarcely be saved, where shall the sinner and ungodly appear?

Jesus tells us that unless unless the days be shortened no flesh will be saved - talking about the time preceding his second return. With homosexuality, immorality and its accompaniment STDs, dropping birthrate and infanticide on the rise as well as abortion, philosophies promoting depopulation one can easily see how this would be a fulfillment of Jesus prophecy concerning the end times.

I remember during one of the more recent presidential elections, someone mentioned that one candidate would be better at "helping the uninsured" or "fixing the economy." Yet, that same presidential candidate proudly stood for things (also embraced by his political party) that were far outside the realm of godly morality.
At the time, I said that if America votes for a person who proudly defends abortion (the murder of millions of babies), then America deserves to financially collapse. I still believe that.
When that politician was elected, his policies and rhetoric shifted the moral dynamic of this nation far toward ungodliness. He then "evolved" (like many of us suspected he would) to support LGBTQxyz goals.
The mass media defended that man, his policies and his political party. Strangely enough, there were Christians who attacked the opposing candidates OR promoted the notion that voting for ANY candidate would be wrong.
Edmund Burke is often said to have stated, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." This is probably an incorrect attribution -- even if the sentiment is still understood.
On the other hand, John Stuart Mill (the British economist) said, "Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing."
For believers who understand the grand plan designed by God, we understand this a bit differently. It isn't "good" men who allow the triumph of evil. Rather, it is silent believers. We don't risk telling the truth in a public manner because we are afraid of how we will be perceived by the people of this dark world.
This fear is somewhat founded. However, if we live and preach the truth, people will still recognize the love of God that shines through us. They might call us "hatemongers," "bigots" or "homophobes." However, that doesn't ring true when the love of God oozes out of us -- even for those who are stung by the Word of God that we proclaim.
I think that one of the most notable outcomes of genuine revival is that people will not fear standing for the Lord. During the Great Awakening, George Whitefield would preach in fields and towns across the colonies in America. In his autobiography, Benjamin Franklin wrote about Whitefield. He said:
"In 1739 arrived among us from Ireland the Reverend Mr. Whitefield, who had made himself remarkable there as an itinerant preacher. He was at first permitted to preach in some of our churches; but the clergy, taking a dislike to him, soon refus'd him their pulpits, and he was oblig'd to preach in the fields.
The multitudes of all sects and denominations that attended his sermons were enormous, and it was matter of speculation to me, who was one of the number, to observe the extraordinary influence of his oratory on his hearers, and how much they admir'd and respected him, notwithstanding his common abuse of them, by assuring them that they were naturally half beasts and half devils.
It was wonderful to see the change soon made in the manners of our inhabitants. From being thoughtless or indifferent about religion, it seem'd as if all the world were growing religious, so that one could not walk thro' the town in an evening without hearing psalms sung in different families of every street."
That last paragraph is particularly interesting. One single, bold preacher -- formerly ostracized by churches -- had a message that caught on in America. Whitefield preached anywhere and everywhere -- and the work of God was easily apparent afterward.
Benjamin Franklin went on to estimate that sometimes, 30,000 people at a time would be able to hear Whitefield preach. Oddly enough, Franklin mentioned that the fire of Whitefield's message was diminished when Whitefield began to focus upon writing about various doctrinal issues.
Franklin even wrote, "Critics attack'd his writings violently, and with so much appearance of reason as to diminish the number of his votaries and prevent their encrease; so that I am of opinion if he had never written any thing, he would have left behind him a much more numerous and important sect, and his reputation might in that case have been still growing, even after his death...."
Sometimes, I wonder if believers might be doing what Whitefield did at the end. He wrote books on controversial doctrinal issues (of which churches and denominations often argue, debate and, of course, align and separate). Instead of proclaiming a more simple yet undeniably harsh message about the state of man, he began delving into those things that still divide believers.
We need revival. When things go well, we need revival. When things are going badly, we need revival. And, of course, this revival isn't an event. It is a state in which men and women, boys and girls turn their minds upon Christ. However, this can't happen if we aren't proclaiming the truth. Moreover, it can't happen if the only places where we proclaim the truth is in our church buildings, Zoom Bible studies and, of course, online Christian forums.

Well said 🙏🏻😇
we have an opportunity, a window, we’d do well not to squander...
As it was with Whitfield, so too will we find instant and vehement opposition to our profession of faith in a public manner. Just as the media of his day was critical and even attacked his message, we too will be subject to a media tho ours will be social and the criticism and attacks will come from closer to home. Tho none of this will happen if we just stay silent in public about our faith and stop sharing our testimony of what Jesus has done in our lives....
We have such an amazing opportunity and the only requirement to fulfill it is faith 🙏🏻😇 God will lead, provide and direct the rest... we only have to step out of “our boat” or safe zone in faith with our eyes firmly fixed on Him.
