Meet the 2018 Down Syndrome Gerber Baby!

In celebration of World Down Syndrome Day we are adding this extra post this week.

The 2018 Gerber (Down Syndrome) Baby proves that a Christian could be an account executive in an advertising company!

The church today has been emasculated by SDS – the Sacred Secular Divide. And young people in the church are catching on that something is terribly wrong. They want their lives to count for something every day of the week, not just on Sunday. They long for their lives and work to have meaning.

As I travel and lecture, I remind Christians that they do not have to be pastors or evangelists to serve God. All Christians are to serve God, be they in school or in the work place. Our dear friend Christian Overman is so good at explaining this.

Here is an example of how a committed Christian with a calling to advertising might connect their work to the kingdom of God. In this short film clip you see the story of Lucas Warren, a Down-syndrome child who was named the 2018 Gerber Spokesbaby. (Go here and scroll down for the video.)

While countries like Iceland, Norway and Holland are applying eugenics to exterminate Down-syndrome babies, someone at Gerbers has used their position to make a massive statement: Down-syndrome babies are human babies.

Gerber’s choice proved the sincerity of their slogan: Every Baby is a Gerber Baby.

Congratulations, Lucas Warren, the boy with a “glowing and giggly” smile, in being chosen as the 2018 Gerber baby.

Kudos to the team at Gerber’s for standing for life—beginning with “the least of these”—in the midst of modern and postmodern cultures that throw away human beings.
