Todd Akin and people like him do more damage to the church than they can possibly imagine. But even if he understood it, there is no indication here that he would change his ways. None of what he does is to honor Christ, it's all to honor himself. As he says he will not be running for anything again (a moot point, as there's almost nothing he could get elected to), this book is mostly a parting shot to say 'I was right'. No, sir, you were wrong. One day Christ will ask you about your words. I hope you have something better to say to him than what you have said in this book.
A computer mistake at the end means his campaign workers get no severance pay and he owes $ to venders. Quality work if ever there was any. Too bad he is not still on the government payroll serving the people of the United States of America. (Not).
The former has an unwanted pregnancy violently imposed; the latter is a liar. So if a woman shows up at Planned Parenthood clinic, who is to say her rape claim is real or not? Akin, or the woman and a police report? News for Akin: ia pregnant rape victim's body does not "shut down." The sperm can indeed find the egg, and is on they way to becoming a fetus.
Akin earnestly apologized for his remarks on video during the campaign. Well, he is recanting his apology two years later. The Missouri Republican now insists that he always believed in what he said regarding "legitimate rape" and is convinced that the media, Democrats, and Republicans such as Mitt Romney all decided to persecute him because he is a good, Christian, patriotic man. Ah yes, that grand conspiracy against right wing Christians -- that explains everything! Akin now claims in FB that the incident was all part of a "spiritual war" between good and evil. Akin was on the side of "good," in case you didn't figure that out. In mid-July, 2014, Akin told David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network that the uproar over his comments was really "part of a spiritual war," instead of a political campaign that galvanized many Missouri women voters.
And on the record, Akin remains an outspoken opponent of abortion IN ALL CASES, including health reasons or in cases of rape or incest. He also opposes embryonic stem cell research.Read more ›
Unfortunately, Mr. Akin seems to have swallowed the false teaching that has been so prevalent in our so-called 'Bible believing, Fundamental' churches and so-called 'Christian' radio over the last 4 or 5 decades; that teaching being that one cannot truly be a Christian unless they are married with children (and in some cases, grand children). This was a good and fascinating read about what goes on behind the scenes in a campaign, until his advice to get married and raise a family as a means of saving our country from God's coming judgment. I'll go ahead and give this 4 stars for the first 180 pages; 1 star for the final 5 pages.
