More and more countries are hearing the death knell of low birth rates.

We live in an age unique in human history. Per capita incomes have never been higher, lifespans have never been longer, and people are better fed and educated than ever before. At the same time, birth rates have fallen to historically low levels. In fact, they have fallen to levels so low that they will extinguish whole populations unless something is done.

Hollywood has often been called a club. Certainly, the history of Hollywood has been rife with elitism, cronyism and nepotism. The studio heads from the Golden Age used to hire their relatives, whether or not they could even speak English.

The religious and political ideology of the Founding Fathers stems partly from the ideas of one of the leaders of the Protestant Reformation, John Calvin. Even liberal historian Richard Hofstedter admits it.

In Romans Chapter 1 verse 24 the Apostle Paul speaks of those who God abandoned to “do whoever shameful things their heart desires.” It’s not being judgmental to recognize that there are such people in the United States. God loves them, but He lets them experience life like a child who has left home in rebellion.

Abandon all hope, you who seek Dante here.
By  Stephen W. Smith
Although skillful and clever throughout, Dan Brown’s Inferno is finally more of a gateway argument on behalf of population control than a simple thriller about Dante, Florence, or bioterror. Considered as a whole, the novel serves as something like a “gateway to the Posthuman age,” as the seeming villain of the novel says when describing the goal of his plot. While the gateways in Dante lead either to Hell and self-knowledge or to Mount Purgatorio and a climb to the stars, this novel leads the reader into a brave new world of genetic engineering and suggests that we embrace the new means required to “save the world,” even if we find them “uncomfortable.”

My friend Joseph Tson, from Romania, was one of the instrumental pastors in delivering Romania from Communism in the 1980s. He said that for years on Sunday in his Evangelical Church in Romania, he preached Jesus while the Romania equivalent of the KGB sat in the front row, monitoring his sermons. He always wondered why they did not care that he was preaching salvation in Jesus Christ, until he realized that the totalitarian Marxist-Leninist state had trespassed, encroached, and assumed those charitable and ecclesiastical activities that God had delegated to the governance, polity and duty of church and family, such as: education, welfare, care for the sick, care for the elderly, and marriage. So, when he started preaching the entire Gospel of the Kingdom of God, he was arrested immediately, was tortured and then had a miraculous release, because he didn’t care if he lived or died as long as he was proclaiming biblical truth and God’s commands which was Jesus Christ and his Kingdom come.
