Choose Your Path, But Be Realistic
Nena Arias | January 21, 2019“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)
If you plant weeds you are insane if you think you can reap bananas, apples or oranges. You did not plant bananas, apples or oranges. Yet, too many people live their lives that way. They live by all the wrong principles, compared to those established by God, and expect to reap the same outcome as if they were living life right-side up instead of upside down. Can you go to the bank and withdraw cash if you haven’t deposited money into your account? Can you fly without observing the laws of gravity and aerodynamics? Exactly! So why is it so easy for humans to believe they can poison their mind, soul and body and not bring death upon themselves?
All the laws for a solid structure to build our lives upon has already been provided by God, our Creator, for our happiness, peace, survival, prosperity and perpetuity. Yet, too many humans reject that structure, and when things don’t turn out like they wanted, only then do they think about God but only to blame him for not treating them right and not giving into their whims. I have to break it to you, ladies and gentlemen, in case you did not know, we were made in God’s image and likeness and not the other way around! He is the designer—he is the potter and we are the clay. “Woe to him who strives with him who formed him, a pot among earthen pots! Does the clay say to him who forms it, ‘What are you making?” (Isaiah 45:9).
Humans and civilizations destroy themselves and they have no one to blame but themselves.
Close to 61 million unborn children have been aborted in the United States in the last forty-six years. In the world, 1.5 billion have been aborted since 1980, that is roughly about one third of the entire world population. Do we think we will not pay the consequences for all that innocent blood shed? The absence of all those babies has left a gaping hole in our civilizations, over an entire generation has been murdered world-wide. Why do we dare to think that the One who conceived and created those beautiful humans to live, prosper and contribute to humanity will not do justice by them?
Let us not deceive ourselves, God will not be mocked, whatever we sow we will reap.
Recently, the annual 46th March for Life event was celebrated in Washington, D.C. It is an event that has been consistently growing in numbers, yet, the networks ignore the hundreds of thousands of an estimated attendance of 100,000-250,000. Granted, there should have been at least one million out there, but it is interesting to note that none of the networks bothered to cover the throng of pro-life supporters who came out for the March for Life. Instead, the major networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) reported on the Jew-hating Women’s March, that was held the day after. Evidently, that was more interesting and worthier for coverage than those who are fighting to save innocent lives from slaughter and that President Trump addressed via video to encourage their work. This important event is consistently downplayed. The networks, with their evil agendas, preferred to cover fluff stories than this historic event that constantly points out the importance of ending this horrific human sacrifice to human pleasure and irresponsibility. Believe me the consequences will come if this does not change.
The quality of people who defend life is in stark contrast to those who want to kill the unborn. A reporter for the Daily Signal, Rachel del Guidice, went to the March for Life and noticed this obvious difference in the diverse crowd of high schoolers and college students, families, older Americans, and clergy. She reported 7 things she saw: 1) the pro-lifers were thankful for lives saved; 2) some reclaimed the color pink for pro-life; 3) she noticed many young women for life in attendance—they believe that all human lives have value and they want to protect them, not kill them; 4) there was an absence of profanity and offensive language, a stark contrast from “women’s marches” and “civil rights” for the sexually perverted like homosexuals and transgenders; 5) this crowd was advocating pro-life rights as civil rights just like the inalienable right to life in God’s Word and our Constitution; 6) there was an atmosphere of joy, not hate; and, 7) there was love and concern for moms and babies, not just the babies.
Dear friends, in life we have choices, but be realistic. Don’t live by evil and junk principles and expect to reap good results from them, that will never happen.
