Until Jesus returns and sets up His perfect kingdom, the culture wars will continue to rage, and there will be many setbacks along the way. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be some real victories as well. Let’s focus on some positive, recent news.
Number - Abortions - America
1) The number of abortions in America continues to drop.
To be sure, this news is hardly all positive, since hundreds of thousands of babies are still aborted every year in the USA. How excited would we be about a hypothetical headline during World War II that stated, “The number of Jews being slaughtered is declining”?

The abortion rate is now less than half what is was in 1990.”

Note that last line carefully, and be encouraged: “The abortion rate is now...
