Our Disposable Culture

In the year 2017 our post post modern culture is clearly one of disposability. We have disposable cups, plates, razors,pens,electronics,etc. etc….ad nauseum. Nothing lasts anymore does it? We realize nothing lasts forever, right?  Including our relationships. This is so well seen by the U.S. divorce rate being over 50% for decades. And the saddest “product” of our disposable culture are babies, our own offspring, our young ones.

The Guttmacher Institutes’ latest available abortion statistics are from 2014. In that year approximately 926,200 surgical abortions were performed in the U.S. Thankfully this number was slightly down from 2011, when the number was 1.06 million. And last year Planned Parenthood alone performed 329,000 surgical abortions.  These numbers are staggering and don’t include fetal death by other abortifacents such as Plan B/ the abortion pill.  As you see, we as a nation, have disposed of our future.

Well, never to worry…Let’s think about Recycling. We recycle right? Environmentally conscious Americans recycle! Well, guess what? Planned Parenthood recycles too! How? Well they sell off the “fetal tissue” or what I call baby parts for research. Isn’t that great? They are RECYCLING! How wonderful, right? All those dead babies don’t have to be stored in jars, buried, or incinerated. Instead they can be kept alive until it’s time for their most valuable parts i.e. eyes, livers, brains, hearts- to be sold to the highest bidder. And this is good, right? This “tissue” can be used for stem cells, to cultivate new drugs, and life-saving therapies! NO, wrong, the Word of God says a blessing cannot come from a curse. And abortion is perhaps the biggest curse on our land since the passage of Roe V. Wade in 1973.

A curse you say? That is superstitious thinking or the bible is “old fashioned”. We have moved past all that mumbo jumbo… We are people of reason, knowledge, science.  Yes, in many ways we have advanced technologically, scientifically, educationally. But we have forsaken WISDOM and GODLY KNOWLEDGE and TRUTH. You may think Truth is subjective, but the Creator does not. There is but one Truth not many….It’s not “my truth” or “your truth”. God, the Creator is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). When He said to Egypt in Joel 3:19- “Egypt will become a waste, And Edom will become a desolate wilderness, Because of the violence done to the sons of Judah, In whose land they have shed innocent blood.”  Is He not the same today? Don’t you see it happening already? The desolation is upon us. Our land is polluted! Our hearts are polluted! We are all guilty of the blood of the innocents killed via abortion on demand! Forty-four years of an unending holocaust in America!

What can be done? Do you want to know? Do you care? You should want to be informed because the blood is upon your hands though you think,  “I personally didn’t commit an abortion.” You stood silent as all this happened around you. Maybe even to your wife, girlfriend, mother, sister, neighbor. And btw what have you done to stand against abortion?

Well it’s not a baby anyhow, it’s just a clump of cells! Well so were we all! The bible says in Psalm 139: 13-16- “For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. 14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knows right well. 15 My substance was not hidden from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Your eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in your book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.”

Quantum Theory has proven the Bible, folks. Science has reinforced the truth of the Word. God called all things in to this dimension. He spoke the word and it was created (Genesis 1:3/ Hebrews 11:3). That means you and me and all the things/ people on this Earth including the Earth and Universe(s). God is Bigger than anything / anyone you can think or imagine. He is a Good God and merciful. He is willing to Cleanse us all from abortion and all sin and unrighteousness.

What must we do to be saved from certain Judgement? REPENT. What is that? To repent means to TURN from your unrighteous sinful ways i.e. behaviors, thoughts, heart attitudes. You cannot do it alone. And that is why our wonderful and loving God gave us a means unto repentance- The man Christ Jesus!

You cannot earn your way to a satisfactory Eternity (and yes Eternity is real/ again reference Quantum Mechanics/ Theory). No one is good, no not one (Romans 3:10). One must be born again, not of flesh, not of man, but of the Spirit of God (John 3:5).

Admit your falling short (sin) even one lie….Turn to Jesus….pray ( through a mustard seed of faith-given to all persons (Luke 17:6). Begin to read God’s Word the Bible. I recommend starting with John, then Romans, and the other Gospels i.e. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Talk to God through prayer, just like you’d talk to a friend. There is nothing mandatory or special about it…Just talk to Him. He sees your need and He hears. You will begin to see a New Life (2 Corinthians 5:17).

And in your praying, let us all pray to END ABORTION.

Blessings.

NC Needs a Memorial for the Unborn/ Aborted

As some of you may know there is a National Memorial for the Unborn in Chattanooga Tennessee http://www.memorialfortheunborn.org .   And there are other memorial “gardens” or parks in other states. In fact there is a memorial garden in Boone, NC.  And some of our local churches create “seasonal” memorials, such as the grave-yard(s) to the unborn with the little white crosses. These are all wonderful…But we need something more permanent and something that will show the reality of what has been done-the mass murder of innocent preborn babies. It could be a form of both repentence and healing for many people in our state.

I and others want there to be a Memorial to the Unborn in our state’s capital in Raleigh.  Most recent statistics (2005 data) shows that NC makes up approximately 2.5 percent of the national yearly average of 1.3 million ——–http://www.ncrtl.org/nc_reported_abortion_statistics_2005.pdf  In 2005 there were 32,335 abortions performed in NC. And abortion is the most commonly performed surgical procedure in the U.S.  Since 1973 when Roe v. Wade nationally legalized abortion on demand, there have been approximately 50 million abortions performed in the U.S. And it continues today to the tune of between 3,500-3,800 abortions performed daily in the U.S.

We are living in the midst of a National Holocaust and we, as North Carolinians, I believe should do something to remember these lost innocent lives.  And perhaps it can serve as a physical reminder of the reality of this tragedy. Perhaps it can even be a warning and prevent more deaths via abortion.

I hope to write to our Governor, Congress-people, and Senators to petition them to create a Memorial to the Unborn in Raleigh. If you feel as I do, please write to me and give perhaps we can work together on this project. Just leave a comment on my blog. And I will get back to you asap.

If we can conceive it we can achieve it!

What is the Cost of Abortion?

Statistics show that since the nationwide legalization of abortion due to Roe v. Wade in 1973, that nearly 40 Million abortions have been performed in the US alone.

Do we ever stop to think about what the Economic Impact is? What do 40 Million Lost lives mean? Everyone is bellyaching now about the so-called Recession that we are in. But did we bring it upon ourselves by aborting our future?

Here are just a few examples of 40 Million lost lives as relates to the economy:

40 Million Children’s parents not shopping for bottles, diapers, toys, booties, school books,etc.

Fewer teaching jobs, manufacturing jobs, health care jobs to produce goods for those 40 million missing persons, to teach them, or to keep them healthy.

40 million fewer teens filling summer and part-time labor needs

40 million   fewer workers earning, spending, saving, investing wages, paying taxes, adding mobility, adaptability, productivity to the labor force; training for the latest technology and occupational needs.

40 million fewer in labor force whose earnings will not go into Social Security pool to take care of our senior citizens, when they can no longer work

40 million fewer minds creating new knowledge.

Who knows if one of those aborted babies could have been another Einstein or someone who would have created the cure for cancer? I know it may soud trite, but it is true!

The losses our country has sustained due to legalized murder=ABORTION, are innumerable. There is simply no way to completely quantify or qualify what we, as a nation, have destroyed.

So, to those who think there is no cost for abortion. Think Again. The cost is real and can be measured in dollars if that helps you to see it better.

Lives and Economy Down the Drain
