The indications of how out-of-whack our generation is just keeps getting more and more bizarre. The culture of death through abortion on demand is horrific and bloodcurdling enough without so-called “Christians” putting God in the mix as a willing participant and betraying all that he has said about the preciousness of life as stated in the Sixth Commandment and how it should be respected. It clearly states, “You shall not murder.”
The Bible verse above has always disturbed me. Perhaps because it is something I don’t want to admit as being true, or so it seems. Why is it that the God-haters, who reject his knowledge of right living and want to make their own path, like Adam and Eve did, are more shrewd, relentless and tenacious in focusing and achieving their goals than the children of obedience to God’s ways?
Does making something legal make it right? As I unfold this writing, you decide. Abortion on demand was decriminalized in the United States in January 22, 1973 by a Supreme Court decision and it has killed 61,619,057, at the time of this writing according to the website: www.numberofabortions.com. This year alone, 677,062 have been aborted and the count increases every second.
Editor’s Note: The following editorial was originally posted in September 2010; its message is worthy to be revisited especially as we consider the present condition of our nation and how our freedoms are being eroded more and more. A prime example is how the “thought police” is out in full force on academic campuses at all levels in efforts to transform our culture into something unrecognizable. Freedom can only be enjoyed if the true definition is known. That perspective is precisely presented in this editorial for your consideration.
When the foundations of life, that are set by our Creator, are tampered with or ignored in the minds of humans, everything of true meaning in life is lost. The age-old fight against God and the way we are to have a relationship with him to understand life, when rejected, causes the human race to go haywire in every direction and adrift like a ship without a rudder only to crash against a rocky coast and fall apart.
Before you turn me off because of the title of this editorial, hear me out and consider what I offer for your consideration. We know that changes do come, and each generation brings noticeable changes some for good and some not so good. When it comes to culture it affects all of us. There are many things we could mention but for now I would like to address this very important topic.
I came across an article that I would like to share with you which gives me hope that we, as a society, may be coming around the full circle of understanding where the intellectuals may be finally ready to agree with the Bible in regard to the origin of all things. This will be a very great step in the right direction to setting the world right-side up once again.
“Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make good use of it! If you do not, I shall repent it in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it!” –John Adams
Illegal migration has become a very real problem in many parts of the world especially here in the United States. With so many wanting to come to the U.S. via Mexico it has not only impacted the U.S. but has also greatly impacted Mexico and its people are speaking out and expressing their discontent.
At the rate of 1.02 million abortions in the United States annually and 61.5 million and counting since 1973 since the infamous Roe v. Wade ruling, is it any wonder that abortion is producing American cities with few children.
