(or, in the long run, anyone else who is not convenient)
March 2, 2012 -- an article today about the 'theoretical' killing of newborns appeared in a British medical journal. The baby does not have to be sick or disabled in any way. The journal claims the article is simply 'theoretical.'
Here is the abstract:
Our oldest son was conceived the month Roe v. Wade passed, in January of 1973. The first advice we were given was to abort, because the baby was a danger to my health. He is 38 now, the best son we ever could have had, a fantastic husband and father in his own right.
When Noah got off the Ark, one of the directions given to him, and thus to the human race, by the Lord, was as follows: "Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man." This has nothing to do with the body or the mind, actually, but with the spirit. In John 4, Jesus told the woman at the well, "God is spirit." And we were created in the image of God.
When we abandon our Judeo-Christian heritage as a culture, we abandon all bases of morality and ethics. That means they are now up for grabs, and whoever is in power can declare what morality and ethics will be enforced.
Paul told Timothy this would be a sign of the end times:
It should also be mentioned that in Romans 1, Paul describes what we will see in the characters of those who deny God and suppress the truth:
We have been horrified that Chinese will drown their baby daughters because they are only allowed one child and they want a son. We are no different.
Whether it is the explosive situation in the Middle East, the imminent collapse of the world economy, the progressive paganization of our culture, or the simple explosion of evil and excuses for it, as they all come together, we can know for sure we are in the last days.
Do not expect some kind of 'revival.' That is not what the Bible tells us is going to happen. What it tells us will happen is exactly what we are seeing now. It's almost finished.
