The gloves are ON! My previous blogs (over at Blogger) have been guarded to say the least. I never wrote about anything too controversial and my posts consisted of what I now would call “fluff”. However, it is obvious to me that time is SHORT and the days to mince words are long past. Thus, let me just say, I do not apologize for this or future posts. It is time the followers of Christ got our heads out of a hole and took a stand for a change. A real stand. Answer the hard questions and get to work. Followers of Christ all over the world are dying for their faith, while we in America hide behind our politically correct tolerance. Eternal souls are at stake here people. This is not a game!
Having said that…..
Some ideas are so unbelievably heinous that I find myself shaking my head in disbelief that I just read what I read. Infanticide and abortion are obviously not new topics, but I’ve never really written anything concerning it, mostly because it sickens me to my very core. Today, I feel led to say how I really feel about this issue (and it is one in the same in my mind). Here is the source of today’s rant: Planned Parenthood Official Argues For Right To Post Birth Abortion.
My initial reaction is WHAT? REALLY AMERICA?! Why is child sacrifice an issue at all? This is what it is plain and simple.
YES I know there are women who are victims of rape and incest and do not want a child produced from these crimes. I get that. It is a horrible, tragic situation and the woman should not have to raise a child under those circumstances. However, I maintain that abortion is not the only option available. There is a thing called adoption. There are many, MANY people out there who would love to make a home for such children. The affordability and easy access to adoption are issues we should spend a lot more time working out. I also maintain that most abortions are NOT the result of these scenarios.
Though its advocates like to categorize it as “women’s health”, abortion is child sacrifice in its most base form. It is a convenient way to “have your cake and eat it too” and avoid the consequences of our actions. We want to fornicate and behave like animals, cause it’s fun and “adult”, but panic when our little flaunts force us into having to act responsibly. After all, a baby will mess up our careers, our play time, our lives, not to mention put a strain on our bank accounts. So, we sacrifice our children to the god of “It’s all about ME” and continue on our merry way.
Others, even self-professing christians, advocate for abortion to “save tax payer dollars”. After all, an unwanted child is likely to become a ward of the state or end up on welfare. It is cheaper to just slice it up inside the womb or suffocate it after it is born. Well, the solution to that is to reform the welfare system! Kick out those who refuse to work, or even look for it, when they are able-bodied and physically capable of being a productive, contributing citizen.
10 For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either. 11 For we hear that some among you are leading an undisciplined life, doing no work at all, but acting like busybodies. 12 Now such persons we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to work in quiet fashion and eat their own bread. 2 Thessalonians 3
God will avenge these precious little ones and woe unto them that seek their blood.
11 If they say, “Come with us,
Let us lie in wait for blood,
Let us ambush the innocent without cause
16 For their feet run to evil
And they hasten to shed blood. Proverbs 1
16 There are six things which the Lord hates,
Yes, seven which are an abomination [i]to Him:
17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
And hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that run rapidly to evil,
19 A false witness who utters lies,
And one who [j]spreads strife among brothers. Proverbs 6
13 For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them. Psalms 139
10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven continually see the face of My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 18
8 But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” Revelation 21
Do you think I am being harsh and judgemental by including this last verse? The world needs Jesus. We cannot judge the world for behaving…”like the world”…for they are under the deception of their own sinful selves and the wiles of the enemy (satan). However we who claim to follow Jesus cannot just sit back and let the world go to hell in a hand basket. Jesus is the answer and the solution. We need to show the world Jesus’ love, but first they need to be aware that they need Him! That is the purpose of the law.
19 Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God; 20 because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin. Romans 3
This post, as are all my posts, is intended for those who profess Jesus Christ. We need to be less concerned about being politically correct and much more concerned about being Biblically correct.
6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet and the people are not warned, and a sword comes and takes a person from them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require from the watchman’s hand.’ Ezekiel 33
