(The following is an email which I sent to all my mailing list earlier today. it is so important that I want to share it with all who will read it here on Cybermeditations. Please think about it.)
Yesterday was the anniversary of another "Day of Infamy" as was said about the Pearl Harbor bombing, and 9-11-2001 when our country was attacked. This day was the Supreme Court decision on Roe V.Wade which permitted abortion on demand in the USA. That was January 22,1973, and since that time it is estimated that over 70 million babies have been aborted in the United States. There have been millions more aborted around the world. The unborn cannot speak for themselves, we must speak for them.
God has already spoken in His word about the slaughter of the innocent. "Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen" (Deuteronomy 27:25).. There are other places where God says this as well. The unborn, who have never lived to sin, are in that sense innocent more than any other. Life begins in the womb. The Bible teaches that.
In 1981 conservative Lutheran barrister John Warwick Montgomery wrote a book titled Slaughter of the Innocents. There have been a number of other books by Christians on the subject, including one by R.C. Sproul that was published 20 years ago called Abortion: A Rational Lok At An Emotional Issue . It has been recently updated. In spite of battles over this for over 50 years, it is still going on, because so many are content with this deplorable situation. We believers in Jesus Christ need to pray, and oppose this slaughter as never before. Our nation faces much more judgment that we have seen if we continue to permit this awful carnage. What are you going to do about it?
When Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was involved in a dog fighting ring, and was convicted of abusing and killing animals, he was imprisoned for several years, as he should have been. But, under the cover of "The law of the land" abortionists go unpunished. A person who abuses animals should be punished, but then far more those who kill human beings, even little unborn human beings.
May God bless each of you and your families, which God gave you, and you have them now because they were not aborted by you!
