Rarely are they huddled inside the clinic, not to condemn, but to bless the procedures that happen there.
Yet that was the Rev. Carlton Veazey’s task as he led a prayer in Bethesda on Monday. “God of grace and God of glory, in whom we move and live,” he said, as he opened a prayer for the well-being of the doctor and nurses who facilitate abortions at a clinic here and for their patients. “Keep them safe and keep them strong.

Opinion: Point 1: “And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.” 1 Timothy 2:12.
However, Acts 18:26 in no way states that women cannot teach or learn:
“So he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately.”
Point 2: Rev. Cari Jackson and the Rev. Barbara Gerlach, are ordained ministers from the United Church of Christ, a replacement theology liberal church that teaches God is finished with the Jew and He transferred all blessings from Israel to the church.
Point 3: That progressive liberalism has so affected major denominations that abortion, same-sex marriage, and transgenderism are being praised and embraced is evidence that the 7th church of Revelation 3:14-22 is being made ready:
“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.”
There is only one Person standing in the way:
“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.” 2 Thessalonians 2:7
