“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

I started the HumanLifeMatters blog eleven years ago as a way for me to vent my grief seeing our once great western Christian civilization – dating back to the Middle Ages -- being dismantled.  All I hold dear is being attacked and broken. It became most evident with the rejection of the sanctity of all human life that served as a foundation of Common Law. It was on the basis of that foundation that our subsequent moral traditions, laws and mores were built. Western Christian civilization gave the highest individual and societal freedoms and liberties ever to exist!  But freedom and liberty need form. That is being taken apart and replaced with ever increasing hardline secularism. Consequently, the lives of the weakest, most vulnerable and unwanted are being turned into hell on earth.  

And yet I remain an optimist. I hope (perhaps foolishly) that what was can be again, to an even greater degree.  I still hope and pray for a Christian revival. I believe that only then can we reclaim what has been lost and restore the culture to valuing every life and where killing each other is unthinkable. This blog is a tool to expose cultural error and cruelty and recommend a better way found in Christ and a Christian moral consensus.

In the early years after this blog was started, very few people read my posts.  The numbers began to grow.  The blog has now surpassed 700,000 page views from across North America. It seems to be striking a full chord with people. 

I will continue to write until, either my health gives out, or Google Blogger censors the HumanLifeMatters blog. What I write is offensive to aggressive and hardline secularist views, and because of this I do not allow many comments. I suspect a progressive or two will complain to Google at some point to have me silenced.
