Growing a jaw bone from stem cells

Thursday, August 26th, 2004 at 9:40 pm

Recent news articles report that a man who had part of his jaw bone removed because of cancer received a new jaw bone implant that was grown from stem cells. Fetal stem cell research proponents will likely use this as fuel for their cause but they will ignore or minimize one of the most important facts about this case. The stem cells came from the man’s own bone marrow – not from a fetus. Using adult stem cells has shown much promise and that is where the private investors’ money is going. Private investors want a good return on their money so they invest in what shows the most promise. They invest in adult stem cell research. Smart investors don’t invest in fetal stem cell research because research in that area has resulted in failure.

Don’t believe people who say they only want to do research on fetal stem cells because they want to find cures for dreadful diseases. If that was the case, they would do more research on the promising adult stem cells. People that want research done with fetal stem cells are really trying to push the pro-abortion, anti-consequence movement and get people to believe that a fetus isn’t really a life and isn’t really human.

Don’t rely on your parents salvation

2 Kings 14:6 (KJV) But the children of the murderers he slew not: according unto that which is written in the book of the law of Moses, wherein the LORD commanded, saying, The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, nor the children be put to death for the fathers; but every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

Everyone will answer for his or her own sin. If you are trusting that you’ll get to Heaven because your parents are committed Christians and raised you in church, you better make your own calling and election sure.

Who is troubling America?

1 Kings 18:17-18 (KJV) And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? 18 And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father�s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.

It seems that Christians are maligned every day and blamed for so many of America’s problems. It is not the Christians who are the ones troubling America. It is the heathens, the unsaved that are troubling America. They are the ones that are bringing God’s wrath and judgment.
