Shame, Shame, Shame!

This week's issue of Charisma Magazine carries an article about an aborted baby born live and then thrown, alive, into the trash in a sealed bio-hazard bag. She died, evidently, of suffocation.

You may read the entire story here.

I am appalled. Not only at the story itself, but that members of the Florida legislature would write this letter.

It is unthinkable that they can condone the abortion that would end this child's life, and then, because she took a few breaths, condemn the abortion clinic workers who treated this life so callously. Where is the logic? If it is legal to end this life before she breathes air, what is to keep it from being legal to end this life after she breathes air?

We have entered a very slippery slope. When we deny the fact that all life comes from God and that it is His prerogative to say when it begins and ends, we have arrogated to ourselves the privileges of God. This is a very dangerous practice!

We have, in fact, by so doing, set ourselves above God. We have made our selfish wishes the graven idol which supplants the Lord God. And we, as a nation, will reap the fruits thereof.

If we are to learn the lessons of the Exodus of Israel from Egypt, we will know that we cannot flout God and remain unscathed. He will use the pagan nations to discipline us, just as He used the unbelieving nations to discipline Israel.

Let us pray for revival in the USA. "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will heal their land."

We, as Christians, are called to intercede for our land. Let us turn and pray.

This is the sort of story which makes me weep. How can a people murder its innocents and think to remain human beings? A human soul would find a way to stop this.

Genesis 2:7 states And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
So ....with the 'breath of life' Adam became a 'living soul'. And so also with the 'breath of life' a fetus becomes 'a living soul'
