The Issue of Life - On My Soapbox Again




I might offend some of my readers with this post, but as I read and hear more comments during the primaries, debates, etc., I cannot in good conscience acknowledge the rhetoric without sharing my views. 

It is difficult to understand how anyone can claim to be a Christian yet ignore the humanity of the preborn and support their destruction or support a candidate that does. Aren't Christians supposed to strive to honor God in all aspects of their lives? How can anyone honor Him by supporting, promoting or encouraging the killing and dismemberment of those most vulnerable?  

I was not aware there was a Christianity Cafeteria where you could choose what to put on your tray and what to pass by.

Psalm 127:3

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.

Proverbs 24 11-12

Did you fail to rescue those who were being dragged off to death, those tottering, those near death,  because you said, “We didn’t know about it”?  Surely, the Searcher of hearts knows
and will repay all according to their deeds

Psalm 139:13-16

You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, because I am wonderfully made; wonderful are your works!
My very self you know.   My bones are not hidden from you,
When I was being made in secret, fashioned in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw me unformed; in your book all are written down;
my days were shaped, before one came to be.

Jeremiah 1:5

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born
I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you.

1 John 3:17-18

If someone who has worldly means sees a brother in need and refuses him
compassion, how can the love of God remain in him? Children, let us love not in
word or speech but in deed and truth.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


In Matthew 15:8, Jesus’ words describe the religious of His day and it still applies:  “These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.”  


We all stray from time to time, no one is perfect....be it from a variety of circumstances (being misinformed, misled, vulnerable, fearful, etc.) but because we have a loving and merciful God, we have the opportunity to make things right through repentance and change.
