Children Are a Gift From the Lord
Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts. They have no fear of God at all. In their blind conceit, they cannot see how wicked they really are. Everything they say is crooked and deceitful. They refuse to act wisely or do good. They lie awake at night, hatching sinful plots. Their actions are never good. They make no attempt to turn from evil.” Psalms 36:1-4 NLT
Wicked people are consumed with evil. They sit around thinking of ways to disturb the lives of the righteous. Their hearts are so dark that they can't discern good and evil.
“Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done.” Romans 1:28 NLT
When righteous proposals are placed before their eyes, they simply shrug their shoulders and dismiss them as invalid, unnecessary, or even oppressive. This is the way it is right now in the political state of our nation. Just two days ago, our Congress was given the opportunity to protect the lives of children who survive abortion attempts. This bill was called The Born Alive - Abortion Survivors Act. You would think that anyone with any shred of decency in their entire body would have agreed to do all that can, and should, be done to give a child life saving care when it had survived the gruesome process of an attempt to kill it ("abort" is the politically correct term). You would think that anyone would understand why a doctor should be criminally prosecuted for not trying to save the babies life. After all, do they not swear to the Hippocratic oath? To our complete dismay, the bill was defeated. Why? Because the wicked, liberal Democrats can't see the forest for the trees. If you think I'm being partisan, check the vote record. No Republican voted against the bill. Three Democrats voted for the bill (Casey - PA, Jones -AL, Manchin -WV). Three Republicans didn't vote (Cramer - ND, Murkowski - AK, and Scott - SC). Many are so blinded by their dark minds that they think they are doing what is best for the "health of the mother" and what protects those who are caught in the throws of "legally" killing these children. Yes, it's killing!! Life is sanctified by God!!! He is the One who gave us life and causes a child to conceive and develop in the mothers womb. Children are a heritage of the Lord! “Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior’s hands. How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.” Psalms 127:3-5 NLT "Thou Shalt Not Kill" is God's command (see Exodus 20:13 and Deuteronomy 5:17)! This, most definitely, applies to unborn and babies born alive during these horrible procedures. Anyone with any conscience at all would know that. The murderous activity of our nation cannot continue to go unpunished. Inevitably, we will face the judgment of God, and we already are, for our selfish crime of abortion. Don't even allow someone to argue that these procedures are necessary because of incest, rape, or deformities. Only a single digit percentage account for these categories. Rape and incest are terrible and only God knows the pain and suffering that come along with them. What about leaving the child in God's hands to decide if the child lives and what they become? There are many stories out there that can help us see this in the light of the child that was the product of these circumstances. In our nation, we protect those who have committed first degree murder by not allowing capital punishment in some states, as well as take care of them for years with tax dollar funds. However, we can kill a baby in the name of abortion and receive applause from the wicked. “and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.” Romans 1:32 NASB This is preposterous!! We have lost our right minds!!We are swimming in our own sewer and we are intoxicated with our own presumed success. We think we are civilized, but we are only modern, evolutionary educated barbarians! God help us!!!
