Were they ashamed when they committed abomination? No, they were not at all ashamed; they did not know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; at the time that I punish them, they shall be overthrown,” says the LORD.
A recent bill was defeated in Congress which would held doctors responsible for providing medical care to infants who survived a botched abortion attempt.
There can be no escaping the reality this is infanticide. Here, you have an actual living person being withhold medical care and inevitably left to die. Whatever one comes to believe about abortion you would think as a society this would be a line that would never be crossed but here we are as a civilized society,
As atrocious as partial birth abortions are this is an act constituted just where a fully human being outside the womb of its hosts is treated as refuse to eventually be discarded. The sitting governor (ironically a medical doctor) of the Commonwealth of Virginia openly acknowledged this to be the case.
Yet, this is what happens when a society takes steps to distance themselves from a moral worldview that was accepted without question for centuries. Keep in mind I am not even arguing for a Christian worldview, just a basic moral one.
Once the genie is left out of the bottle a society is never able to return to its previous moral mooring. Things will only get worse, not better. All one has to do is look at history and then all one has to do is read the Bible. The One who purports to “know the end from the beginning” says things will continue to disintegrate to such an extent only His miraculous intervention will save humans from their greatest enemy: themselves.
For example, we started with civil unions and that quickly escalated to full legalized marriage for same sex partners. You can book it that we soon see calls for multiple partners and it will even go so far as bestiality, mark my words! Once you reject the one man and one woman for life worldview then logically why is not everything else deemed permissible.
Evangelicals can find comfort and the resolve to not lose heart because the Word of God promises a Day of Reckoning for all those brazenly oppose God’s clear revelation concerning the sacredness of life, especially human life.
It is so be noted that every announced Democratic Presidential Candidate in Congress voted against the proposed law. While, on one hand, it should not be a surprise because they belong to the Democratic Party it does reveal to what length of depravity the Democratic Party is willing to capitulate regarding the moral revolution to retain their political relevancy.
The adherents of the moral revolution are fond of claiming there are on the right side of history. Well, if one simply decided the correctness of an action by counting noses then those who embrace the moral revelation should feel secure and confident.
Yer, I join with countless other Evangelicals who believe the belief of only one person matters and that one person is the Creator and Sustainer of all that exists in time and space.
The Bible says it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. I believe that not because I agree. I believe that simply because God said it. I am ashamed of every shameful actions I have committed and will commit in the future, if the Lord should tarry. The question of life will not be adjudicated by scientific investigation no matter how helpful that enterprise may or may not be. The question of life and its value and worth are deemed by the one who creates and regulates it flourishing.
We will see other acts inconsistent with God’s revelation as He tarries His return but all of us are put on notice. We will give an account and the only remedy is found in His dearly beloved Son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I implore all to, “kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.” (Psalms 2:12).
It is good to be back and I exhort all to keep their hand to plow and serve for an Audience of One.
