me out to the ballgame!"
On opening day at
Busch Stadium in St. Louis, King Jesus showed up outside the stadium
walls bearing the truth as a sea of red converged on this St. Louis
landmark that houses the Cardinals National League baseball team. Over
49,000 people were confronted with the truth of abortion. Open the eyes
of their hearts, Lord. "America, Jesus died for you!" Security
was tight as the President was in town. Sharpshooters were on rooftops
and helicopters flew over the city.
Daniel, Mia and
George W. Bush threw out the first pitch for the Cardinals’ home
opener before an approximate 49,000 people, four saints including one
with a shofar stood outside showing thousands of people the graphic
truth of abortion in America today. We passed out Bibles and a tract
that told people, on average over seventy babies a day are murdered, and
many women are injured at the Hope abortion Mill in Granite City, IL,
and Planned Parenthood in St. Louis, MO.
11:13, 15 "Though seeing they do not see; though hearing, they do
not understand. For this people's heart has become calloused; they
hardly hear with their ears and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise
they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with
their hearts and turn, and I would heal them."
fans' reaction was either crying or cursing from the women, which
usually indicates they have been personally affected by abortion,
somehow. Men were typically angry or apologetic for not having the
courage to stand with these proclaimers. Just like the men of Ephraim
(Psalm 78:9-11), men today do not know how to fight the battle. They
lack the moral character and leadership in society today, so they just
give in to whatever feels good, and they turn back on the day of battle.
Ronald McDonald tries
to hide in the shadows after his failed attempt to bribe these bold kids
with free Happy Meals
McDonald wasn't happy to see the truth. This clown offered the children
free food if they would just go away. "You're ruining my day,"
whined Ronald Get a life! Yes Ronald, Jesus does give Life, and you're
just two fries short of a Happy meal!
the way McDonald's is one of MTV's BIGGEST supporters. The American
Family Association reported April 5 th that McDonalds has refused to
address the network programs that are filled with sex, profanity, and
music with sexually explicit language. McDonald's claims that they
support MTV because "it is very much within the mainstream of
American popular culture." It’s unbelievable that the burger
chain CEOs think we’ve forgotten their Super Bowl preview of what MTV
spews out 24/7. See the AFA action alert at http://www.afa.net/activism/IssueDetail.asp?id=118.
Christians were bold enough to hold signs outside the stadium that
President Bush was inside throwing out the first pitch, reporters from
the newspaper and News Channel 5 KSDK came over and interviewed the
proclaimers. What a mix - the unions protesting Bush and the Christians
calling everyone not actively fighting abortion with the Gospel of Jesus
Christ to repentance! The media cannot resist covering anyone that
disagrees with Bush.
Savanah, Mia and
Another male fan
was upset. He paid fifty dollars for his ticket and these signs were
upsetting his appetite. Well, how do you think baby Malachi felt? Some
fans recognized the truth-bearers and reacted as though they suffered
from Montezuma's revenge or O.B.S. (over-active bladder syndrome) and
made a mad dash for the entrances to the stadium. There were some,
"God bless you's" as some people were thankful that we were
there and accepted the Bibles and tracts. One man even offered to give
Hunter a donation but instead Hunter said, "That's not
necessary," and gave the man a Bible.
The Church of
Jesus Christ has been called to preserve our culture. We have given over
our Godly heritage to our favorite past-time events in our cities. What
kind of a heritage are we leaving to our future generations? We have
made sports and money our god. Can you imagine half of the 49,000
fan-goers showing up outside the Hope Clinic or Planned Parenthood? Our
prayer is that the Church will awaken from its slumber and stand at
these "gates of hell" and then God will hear us and turn the
hearts of the fathers to their children and bring an end to the
slaughter of the innocent.
By the way the
final score: King Jesus wins!
