This writer has been addressing the American people in one form or another for over 40 years. One disheartening matter has followed my writing, and it is a fact that took decades to see.
I noticed that, when I wrote about the dark sin of abortion, I got quite a few less reads than normal. Then, I saw that those who publish my submissions were slightly less attracted to anti-abortion material.
I felt that they were acting like they were doing me a favor if they did publish, and asking me to do them a favor by not publishing.
It did not take me over forty years to learn one important lesson, which is the realization that they have not done me or themselves any favors.
The matter of abortion will one day be seen as the longest period of sustained human madness in any millennium since the beginning of time.
Silence is sinful because silence is deadly. If you need further explanation for this, then this article is a beginning for you.
Decapitation and abortion: The twins
The world was taken aghast on October 7, 2023, when Hamas surprised the peaceful residents of Israel and slaughtered over 1,400 men, women, and children.
They were mowed down by gunfire, raped, and burned alive, but the worst was the decapitation of children by Hamas terrorists. It left the most hardened heart to wonder if civilization is gasping for its last breath.
Is the most wicked behavior of a generation separated by a thin line called a slight semantic difference?
When calling for a nation that was not ever a nation (Palestine) to be free, can we behead babies to gain that freedom? But if calling for more freedom to have irresponsible sex, defending the make-believe constitutional rights over women’s bodies, or any other flimsy excuse, make it more palatable with a mere medical or anatomical term? For that, we will engage the old standby—call it a fetus instead of a baby.
Baby or fetus—human beings are still being stalked by death at the hands of other human beings.
We can quote statistics, mention the 60+ million children already aborted in America alone, and bewail the battle over Roe now spread out across the states. But the two most dangerous places for an unborn human being, or newborn baby to be in, is at a Jewish Kibbutz in Israel, or a mother’s womb in the United States.
Whether inspired by the death mongering Quran and Hadith, or laboring under the lofty idea that Western intellectualism is above all ancient moral codes, the result is the same.
Children, unborn or newborn, can be treated like animals for our own cause or political persuasion.
How wrong can we be?
According to the ancient wisdom of Solomon, even an animal should be treated better. To wit:
“A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel” (Pr. 12:10 KJV).
Islamic equivocation or Western prevarication: Both are shameless lies
In the West, we cringe at the idea of decapitation, but which of us has the stomach to peruse the actual methods used in our own abortion clinics to kill unborn babies surgically, medically, or chemically?
If you think you can handle it, check out this detailed perusal of abortion methods, provided by the American Life League.
Whether it’s Islamic delusion or Western intellectualism, this kind of behavior is where we get the term "culture of death," and the most humiliating part is that it is all caused by ignorance of the will and counsel of the Living God.
Adults view themselves as the great ones, and children as subordinates or chattel, but that is not how God sees things. God flips that idea on its head.
“At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven” (Matt. 18:1-3 KJV).
A culture of death does not understand the concept of innocent blood
John Adams, a signatory on the Declaration of Independence and a framer of our Constitution, said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
This is what explains the fact that almost all pro-lifers are believers in God and a higher moral code of conduct. It is also a fact that most people who believe in some religion or God, whether real or not, think abortion should be illegal.
For those who are strong disciples and immersed in the undiluted biblical message, the entire idea of abortion is totally abhorrent.
These are the people who know that God is involved in the lives of the unborn and newborn babies before, during, and after their birth.
Before the birth
Before we are born, God knows every aspect of our development. David said God knew him while he was being formed (Ps. 139:13-17 KJV).
Going yet a step further, God exclaimed to Jeremiah the Prophet that he knew him even before he began to be formed.
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations” (Jer. 1:5 KJV).
But it reaches back much further. Isaiah the prophet spoke of the great king known as Cyrus the Persian becoming his servant. That proclamation was made a full 150 years before Cyrus was born.
But then along comes Jesus who proclaims that God knew him before the very foundation of the world.
“And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was” (Jn. 17:5 KJV).
During the birth
Then we see that God is interacting with the unborn as they develop. Today’s experts all agree that a child can hear and distinguish between his parents and siblings while in the womb. John the Baptist leaped or jerked in the womb of Elisabeth when she entered the house and proclaimed what she was told about Mary bearing the Savior of the entire world.
“And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost” (Luke 1:41 KJV).
After the birth
God watches the development of children and cares about everything that happens to them.
“And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.” (Mark 9:42 KJV).
The final warning is a recurrent warning found throughout the entirety of the scriptures.
“These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood” (Prov 6:16-17 KJV).
Those who decapitate or abort children—take heed.
There is little difference between the two in the eyes of the Lord.
