“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

The HumanLifeMatters blog has surpassed 50,000 hits! If these were all new visits it could be attributed to individuals drifting through the Internet but that is not the case. Many of these hits are return visits.

Although the blog has a technical snag that does not allow comments to be publicly displayed, I do see and read them. A sample of comments include:

"Hi, my name is yogesh kumar. I like this blog website. I say thanks to that person who made this."

An adoption agency wrote and said, "Interesting thoughts and ideas. This theme might be similar to other blogs but I think you have a unique design as well as unique content. Thanks for sharing."
A reader in London England said, "You guys have amazing thoughts...Keep it up, and thanks for sharing this great post with us."
A French reader commented: "It is my great pleasure to visit your website and to enjoy your excellent posts here. I like that very much. I can feel that you paid much attention for those articles, as all of them make sense and are very useful. Thanks so much for sharing."

Another reader wrote in response to the blog Abortion and euthanasia acceptance are historical aberrations " I am glad I found your blog. I hope you won't mind my posting this on my fb page. Our legislators (Philippines) are currently debating on the reproductive health bill. People should read your blog. It sheds light on something that we should all be giving importance to--life."
Please encourage more people to visit the HumanLifeMatters blog regularly for information on critical Life issues of our time.
