PRINCIPLE – the source or origin of anything;
a general truth, a truth so broad and sweeping that
many other truths can be considered offshoots of it
PRAYER – I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers,
intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and
for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life
in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight
of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto
the knowledge of the truth. I Tim 2:1-4
Give thanks to God! Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD,
among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name. 2 Sa 22:50

Creation Science Fellowship Meeting. 18 Nov, 7pm - Alameda Bible Church, 220 El Pueblo NW. Thornton and Ruth Schwenk - "Fraud and Deception versus Truth in the Development of Human Embryos - Reversing the Plague of Abortionism." Because we were taught this in school, many are aware of the vague concept of a so-called biogenetic "law", introduced in 1868 by German evolutionist Ernst Haeckel (1834-1919). It was known by other terms such as "the embryonic recapitulation theory" or "ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny", meaning that a human embryo supposedly re-traces its evolutionary history as it develops, (gill slits like a fish, a tail like a monkey, etc.) Although Haeckel's research was based on his own fraudulent drawings and the theory has been debunked (by most evolutionists), the concept persists in textbooks and the popular press to this day, and has left behind a heritage of tragic consequences, one of these being a balm for the practice of abortion. How can we overcome these lies and minister to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of women facing an unplanned pregnancy?
Creation & Marriage. What does creation have to do with marriage? You'll find both in Gen 1-2. Without creation, there would be no marriage. Marriage is defined by Gen 1-2. Society redefines marriage or disregards it altogether as Gen 1-2 is forgotten or ignored. Benefits of marriage are a blessing of God's truth and His design for human relationships - www.heritage.org/Research/Family/HL-804.cfm
If people don't like marriage, they say humanity is evolving away from the need for marriage. If marriage works best for the human design, then they say "change the design" through genetic engineering. God designed us and He said "it is GOOD." Our nation recognized Creation in The Declaration of Independence: "… all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights …."
Churches will have the opportunity to sign a Community Marriage Policy (CMP) in the next months prior to Marriage Protection Week 2004. For more information on the CMP, please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Internet Moms. My name is Andrea Sierra and I am a mom with 3 wonderful boys. I have been a Christian for 13 years. I started with i-Moms about 16 months ago and I absolutely love it!! i.Moms was created by a group of women who have a strong desire to help other people become successful while working from home with a flexible schedule. We are not just moms anymore. We have dads, students, singles, childless couples, grandmas and grandpas. i.Moms mentors are people who believe your family should be your first priority. But we also understand that two incomes are necessary in most households today. We have chosen to partner with a company that enables us to do our work from our homes while being the primary caregiver to our families. We are able to make money while providing a safer living environment for the ones we love.
We don't sell products....... hold home parties..........or pay monthly membership fees. Plus, we don't have to rearrange our budget to buy things that we don't want or need, such as motivational materials or "how-to" software. We are looking for people who are SERIOUS about making changes in their lives." People who want to raise their own children while also contributing financially to the household.
May God Bless You,
i-Moms Director III

American Education Week. (Excerpt from Education in the United States, World Book Encyclopedia, 1972, Education, History of.) American Education Week, held each year in October, acquaints the public with the work of education and with its problems, achievements, and needs. It is sponsored by the American Legion, the National Education Association, the National Congress of Parents and Teachers, and the United States Office of Education.
Education Week was first observed in 1921. Other countries have adopted the custom of observing an education week under the leadership of the World Federation of Education Associations. A typical Education Week program opens with sermons in the churches of the community on the importance of education. The rest of the week is devoted to such activities as open house programs, special radio and television programs, special PTA meetings, and exhibits in businesses, schools, and libraries.
Each year, the sponsoring organizations select a theme for the observance of American Education Week. Themes have included Better Education - Your Job; America Has A Good Thing Going - Its Schools; and Interest In Learning. The theme for 2003 is "Great Public Schools for Every Child - America's Promise." Thank a teacher, administrator, staff, or volunteer this week.
Teachers have a hard job and are worthy of recognition. However, the American education system is seriously flawed. By a very narrow margin, NM voters recently approved an increase in education funding (approx $75M). HB 212 will determine distribution of the additional funding. We'll see if it goes to teachers and students or more administration. Research done by Heritage Foundation indicates that more money does not improve public education. For a balanced review of education, please see www.rges.cc/education.htm and www.rges.cc/histofed.htm.

Tribute to Dr King Sanders. As legislative liaison, Sanders was very visible at the state legislature in Santa Fe, attending hearings, testifying before committees and communicating concerns of New Mexico Baptists on moral issues. Three-time governor Bruce King once described Sanders as the "most visible person on Christian causes" during his tenure. For the rest of the article, see: www.bcnm.com/ministries/communication/issue/eight.htm.
