Of Small Victories
forward by Angela Michael
where envy and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work:
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable,
gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits,
without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of
righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.” James
Detractors are not a surprise, the fact
that they profess to be Christians is. But when we realize that
the very same battle happened before, it’s to
be expected. There was rebellion in Heaven. Satan could not run
the rebellion by himself because he is not omnipotent and we
discover that one-third of Heaven was as sinful and vicious as
Satan. If God , Himself had warfare in Heaven ,why would any of us
Fact: babies are alive today; babies that would have been murdered
through abortion because of the efforts of Angela and Daniel
Michael and their "help women, help the unborn" ministry
known as Small Victories. This selfless couple has, for
years, helped thousands and has even gone so far as to adopt two
abortion bound babies into their own family.
Now, it has come to my attention that Small Victories is under
attack. They are, among other things, being accused of
financial impropriety and, those who would destroy them have even
gone so far as to put up a website devoted to that goal.
Further, they've contacted would-be donors and have even run ads
in the Belleville News Democrat. All this under the guise of
Christian love and correction.
Two things. Since this is supposedly a "Christian"
matter, it should have been handled in the church. Secondly,
the accusers are faceless, nameless, anonymous. Like those
who don masks or hoods to do their dirty deeds, they avoid
confrontation and the essential American underpinning of being
able to face your accusers. My advice to them is…man up.
Tell us your names and boldly come before the judge with your
case. No business of ministry is beyond examination.
But, to cast stones from afar, from behind your barricade of
darkness…is cowardly. And to the rest; check out for
yourselves this important ministry in our midst.
