BP This Week: The Reality of Evil

In the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting the U.S. has ever seen, we mourn with the families of those killed or wounded in Las Vegas. Our hosts reflect on the reality of evil, and how Christians are called to combat it and to bring healing, and on how we can still believe in and love a God Who allows evil men to carry out such acts.

At the same time, we celebrate an exciting step forward for the pro-life movement. The U.S. House of Representatives has just passed a bill that would ban most abortions after 20 weeks of gestation–the point at which we know unborn babies can feel pain. It faces stiff opposition from Democrats in the Senate and disinterest from Republicans. President Trump has vowed to sign it, if it passes. Now is the time to let your U.S. senators know what you expect from them.
