Ask Forgiveness for a Medical Procedure? Yes!!!

Do I need to be forgiven for having a gall stone removed? No, that’s not what I mean….

In the past 44 years since abortion became legal nationally due to the Roe V. Wade decision, over 50 Million unborn babies have had their lives snuffed out.
As much as we who are ProLife think about those precious innocent babies. Do we stop to really think about those women who lost those babies due to abortion?
In abortion there are two victims. One is left living (usually) and the other is left dead. But the mother, who must go on living with the knowledge that she chose to terminate the life of her own child is often tortured. And many don’t realize they have committed a sin,due to many factors,including teaching about “evolution”. Our culture has called abortion a “Medical Procedure”. The truth is that abortion is a Killing. The killing is not just of the unborn child within the womb. Other deaths take place. Often the death of the spirit of that woman takes place. She is so wounded by the abortion experience that her life is altered forever.
Women need healing and hope after an abortion. But due to the pain, shame, and guilt, most women may keep their abortion(s) a secret. They hold in the pain. The pain does come out in many ways, however. These women often lose their relationship with the father of the baby that was aborted. They then may go on to have serial relationships which are unhealthy or even abusive, since often low self-esteem results from an abortion. Other women may turn to drugs and alcohol to numb the pain. And others yet may harden their hearts and conscience and try going on like nothing happened.

The women have been lied to and duped by this culture of death. They are suffering and many don’t know where to turn for relief.
As a woman who has gone the through the torture of abortion personally, I can tell you there is only one place or really one person to turn to that is JESUS. He is the only one capable of taking away from you the sin of abortion. You see, when a woman makes the choice to kill, she has the blood of her unborn baby on her hands. That is innocent blood. So you see that is why you feel so badly. It’s why you need to drink, or do drugs, or have relationships, or sex to try to brush away that guilty stain on your heart and mind.

You cannot remove the pain, the stain; you cannot do it. Jesus can! He died a horrible death on a Roman Cross to take upon Himself the responsibility for what you have done. Can you believe it? Many cannot. It sounds too simple, right? Or maybe it sounds too good to be true? Or maybe it sounds like a Religion? Rationalizations can be innumerable. But Jesus is none of those things. He is a person. He is the Savior (of you,) if you will only call out with a mustard seed (tiny bit) of belief in Him, then He will show himself to you, personally. You can ask him for forgiveness. You need to ask. It is called Repentence. We cannot and will not be forgive unless we ask for it. That is the Free Will that God put in each of us. He forgave me. He will do it for you-when you choose to ASK Him.
The only way Jesus will not come and cleanse and forgive you is if you are unwilling. Some are too proud. Some are too smart or educated. Some believe there are many paths to God or heaven. Some think they are “good” people. Some just deny the pain away and believe they did nothing wrong, it was a blob of tissue and just a medical procedure. You know in your heart of hearts it was so much more.

I am so grateful that Jesus loved me so much that he drew me to himself with his great Love. He does that. He draws people through his Goodness and Mercy.
In our culture if someone commits a homicide. Lets say goes up to someone and shoots another person with a gun. That person is guilty of murder, and is punished. Yet our culture legalized, condones and even promotes murdering the most helpless people of all. And the only punishment for the doctors and women is perhaps a guilty conscience, if that.

I hope you will think about what I have said. Let it really sink in to your heart and mind. Maybe you are a person of another religion. Maybe you don’t believe in God’s existence. Or maybe you believe in many paths of righteousness that can lead to “God” as you see Him or Her or It.
Whatever the case may be in your personal life. All you need to do is sit on your bed and sincerely (verbally or silently) say “Jesus, if you are real, as others believe. Then please show yourself to me. ” He will begin in perhaps subtle ways to draw you. You will see His faithfulness. Open your heart and you will see.
It may sound silly, but again, it’s the mustard seed of faith. And He hears you when you call. He loves you. He created you. He knew you before your were born and even before this earth was created.

He wants to make your life whole again. He wants you to know His Great Love and Forgiveness. We all need forgiveness because none of us has lived a perfect life. And we cannot be good enough to earn it. It is through His sacrifice that we can make it here in this life and most importantly to Eternity with Him in Heaven. And you definitely want to end up in Heaven because that is where your baby is, with Jesus. The innocent are gathered around the Father’s throne in heaven. If you choose Christ you will be reunited with your aborted (unborn) child.

May His Holy Spirit touch you now, that you Believe this: The Good News.
In Jesus Name.

Cowardice,Facebook,Doublespeak

I am a pro-life advocate. It is a deeply rooted part of who I am. I have a testimony about abortion. I know God is on my side in regard to speaking out against the injustice and atrocity of abortion.

The past week or so has been a bit disheartening on the front for Life. As you may know the Susan G. Komen Foundation made a decision to de-fund Planned Parenthood, and a couple of days later reneged and caved to the liberal bias and decide to return funding to Planned Parenthood.

During this tussle between Komen and Planned Parenthood, the media gave much coverage. But the main and most influential coverage came from social media i.e. Facebook, Twitter, etc. etc….  I, along with many others posted statuses on FB saying things like “Way to go Komen” and more recently “Boo Komen…”  But one thing I noticed is that FB users in particular tend not to directly state a blunt opinion on matters such as abortion. I think they are trying to be politically correct and do not want to “offend” anyone. Many FB users use little illustrations or photos to indirectly get their point across. It is not so indirect however.

I got into a direct conversation with one of my FB “friends” about the topic of abortion after seeing the following photo on her status.

Upon seeing the above image I replied: “Sarcasm, the lowest form of humor. Maybe some babies will be saved from less monies going to murder them! I thought you were pro life. Abortions hurt babies and women and are linked to more breast cancer, so if one is against breast cancer then one should applaud Komen’s decision to de-fund PP, which I do.”

To my statement my FB friend replied : ” I  am truly sorry if I’ve offended you. Truly. I am thankful though, that we live in a country in which we can openly disagree on such matters. But again, truly sorry if I offended you. Then after this she went on to post a quote in her status from a lesser know sociologist in regard to, and I am paraphrasing ” Stupid people tend to be politically conservative…” To which I responded  that I was surprised at her quoting a 19th century British philosopher who espoused Population Control…” To which She replied “I just thought the quote was interesting.’ As if to say that it meant nothing to her personally. Okay I guess my profile pic makes me look stupid, oh and conservative, of course….

Next in the course of our FB discourse she (my FB friend) quoted Ani DiFranco- (well known feminist icon)

“Buildings and bridges
are made to bend in the wind
to withstand the world,
that’s what it takes
All that steel and stone
is no match for the air, my friend
what doesn’t bend breaks
what doesn’t bend breaks

I assumed correctly that this was a veiled explanation of why she apparently is now Pro Choice.  And in the midst of quoting Ani DiFranco and apologizing for possibly offending me, her FB friends were making comments about how they liked her status and basically making effort to come to her defense. The funny thing is that these others did not even know what we were really talking about which was ABORTION.

So with another “apology” from her “if she offended me”….etc. and with an admission that she herself had indeed had an abortion because “I just could not see myself raising a child with this person…”

I responded with the following: “Hi Friend, I was not offended by you. I honestly just believe that God is the offended one when we (me and you) snuff out innocent life that he has sent to us. I did it too and the experience opened my eyes to the reality of what abortion is-murder. I have, by the Grace of God, repented and been set free from the blood- guiltiness. But I suffered for years, really over a decade. First from not being able to forgive myself, even though I knew God had forgiven me. And I suffered severe physical pains, with menstrual irregularities, etc etc for about a decade. I also suffered mentally and emotionally. I thought I was infertile since we tried to get pregnant for over 10 years and could not. So really, the reason I am so passionate about abortion is because of what it did to me. But God, being so good, has worked it all for his Glory and my good. The abortion actually brought me to my knees, to a place where I cried out to Jesus, if he was real, then I needed him to save me from my horrible sin or I would have likely ended my own life. And he saved me! That is why I am so fervent . It is my personal, real- life testimony of what Jesus did for me. He loves the unborn and I know it breaks his heart to see their innocent lives extinguished. And sadly the blood is on the hands of the United States government for allowing legalized murder of the unborn. I hope you have been able to repent and receive forgiveness from God for your choice. There is Mercy with the Lord. I only wish that years ago when you and I attended CC Church that OUR PASTOR had allowed me to go up and give this testimony. He set a date for me to do so and reneged last-minute. Maybe if you had heard me speak then, about this topic your choice would have been different? But I believe in Romans 8:28. I just don’t want any other woman to have to go what I went through and I will go to any length God allows to help that not to happen. May the Love of Jesus be with you always. You will know your child in heaven, God showed me that.

Later her status read: “A break from Facebook for a while…a good thing to do every now and again.’

Next I see a status message from afore-mentioned former Pastor which reads: “I am deleting my Facebook page. I have started a new one. With all the changes in my life it seemed like a needed fresh start. If you want to be friends with the “new me” please like this status, search for me by name, and friend me at the other page. This page will be deleted VERY soon.”   INTERESTING>>>>>????

Ah, so time tells a lot. And I have come to realize Facebook tells us some things too. I see now that we must decipher the social media’s little back door methodologies for sending messages i.e. “communicating”. This is difficult for me since I am BOLD and do not mince words about issues concerning the lives of the precious unborn. Yet, I continue to try to use tools which  God has given us in this post modern technological era.

The convoluted nature of the social media interfaces is a maze to navigate in order to communicate. You see my status. You like. I see your status. I post a You Tube. You see my You Tube, you post an e-card…and on and on it goes. Brave New World or Doublespeak?

To end my part of our FB discourse I posted the following image to summarize my feelings on the topic of origin:

Here is God’s Status:  DEUTERONOMY 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.

Precious One

NC Has No Law Banning Partial Birth

The chart below indicates for each state whether or not a so-called “partial-birth abortion” ban is in effect.The states listed below in gray have not passed “partial-birth abortion” bans.

 

I do not understand why the state of North Carolina has not passed a law banning partial birth abortion. But I believe we must do so.  To not pass this law is to basically leave a back door open to abortion through out the entire pregancy. This is unconcionable!

This is just another example of the sad fact that North Carolina is not a pro-life state.  I understand that the national PBA- law is currently being upheld, however, if we do not succeed in electing a pro-life president, it could be a matter of time before the partial aborion ban is brought before the Supreme Court again and possibly overturned. It is important that each state individually take its stand for life, by adopting state-legistated bans. With the election coming on Tuesday, I feel like I must hold my breath and pray….

Pro-Lifers: There is a lot of work to do!

Thanks and God Bless to those of you that are working hard for the lives of the unborn!

Young Woman Planning to Auction her Virginity

I am sure some of you may have heard this: A young woman named “Natalie Dylan” (pseudonym) is trying to auction her virginity to the highest bidder.  Why?  She says she is doing it to raise money for her schooling.  This, to me is very sad, to say the least.  If this misguided young woman goes through with this she will essentially become a prostitute right out of the gate, so to speak, and will be indeed selling her “talent” for an unworthy purpose.

A virgin selling out her God-given purity!  Only in America in 2008! Look at what we have become.  It seems money/ fame/sex  are the trifecta. These three are the all driving end and goal for any and everything!  People, I realize we are in “desperate” times but this woman already has her undergrad degree. Does she need to humiliate herself in such a manner because she can’t get a job unless she gets a graduate degree? I think not.  And I wonder, after all of the controversy  surrounding her currently and the imminent shame to follow; who will be hiring her? If she wants to use her looks and her body only, she may as well go on and work for Playboy or something. From the bits I have read about her, she seems to be an intelligent person, and so I really cannot fathom why she cannot deduce a more moral/ decent way to obtain the funds she needs to go on to grad school.

I really hate this because it sends such a horrible message to the youth of our country. It is saying I will give you something if you pay me for it. This flies in the face of God. God has intended that indeed both men and women remain virgins until marriage and by thus doing so, the marriage bed is undefiled. If you have slept with (fornicated with) others before marriage, your marriage stands a much greater chance of failing i.e. ending in divorce. There are many studies out there that prove this. If you don’t believe me look it up. An individual’s virginity is something that he or she is meant to give to the ONE person whom they (or more importantly God) selects for them to be with as life long spouses, within the context of marriage.

What if Ms. Dylan’s first union results in a pregnancy? Chances are much higher for conception with a virgin reproductive system.  Is she going to use a condom or I wonder if she is on birth control?  She can perhaps stay the consequences of pregnancy by using one of those methods, but she will never be able to avoid the consequences to her spirit, her conscience, and ultimately her future.

Even if Ms. Dylan gets her graduate degree and perhaps eventually her doctorate; the question that remains in my mind is: Can she live with herself? I certainly hope and pray this young woman changes her mind and does not go through with this ridiculous act. 

I pray that she will be touched by real love, that is the Love of Christ. He is the one who is our provider, our friend, our everything. I pray the scales will be removed from her eyes before she goes through with this humiliation to her body,soul,and spirit, which should be viewed as the temple of God and is not to be defiled.

And I certainly pray there will be no copy cats who think this is a viable way to get money, education,a new car?  Remember, the bible says to us that “… the love of money is the root of all evil 1Timothy 6:10.”  We are living in an economy that proves this, are we not?

A High and Difficult Calling…

The following is based on the bible verses from Matthew Chapter 5 verses 41-48  This is part of a bible study I am doing. 

These are the words of Jesus:

v.41  And whosoever shall compel you to go a mile, go with him two miles.

v.42  Give to him that asks you, and from him that would borrow of you, turn not away.

v.43  You have heard that it has been said, You shall love you neighbor, and hate your enemy.

v.44  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you;

v.45  That you may be the children of you Father which is in heaven: for he makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust.

v.46  For if you love them which love you, what reward have you?  Do not even the publicans (tax collectors)  the same?

v.47  And if you salute your brothers/ friends only, what do you more than others? Do not even the publicans do so?

v.48  Be you therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

The above verses are an illustration of what Christian Love is supposed to be.  Are we there yet? No, obviously not.  This kind of “perfect love” is very difficult for us sinful people to show.  We are called here to show “Agape” type of love, which is a Godly type of love. This type of love is so vastly different from any type of human or fleshly love, that many cannot even comprehend it.  Really, the only way, to my mind, that one can comprehend this type of love is to know the ONE who loves this way, that is Christ.  Without His example, people are naturally clueless about this “Agape” love.

We all know that it is easy to love those people who are kind, generous, giving… But we also know that it quite hard and even impossible at times to try loving people who are mean, angry, hateful.  But Jesus says that if we love those that love us, then what credit is it to us? That is easy, He says.  

Jesus even instructs his followers to bless those who curse us.  Wow!  This is indeed a high calling. When we get cursed out, or done wrong in some way- our natural tendency is to curse the other person back. We have a human nature that wants to give tit for tat/ get even. The only way a human can do what God is asking here is via His Holy Spirit which indwells the believer and by His Grace which HE freely gives. And even so, one must be submitted to Christ and seek wisdom in cases such as this.   We do not see things as God sees them so going against our “human” i.e. sinful nature is very hard even in the best circumstances. And if you are a Christian you will be tried on this point.

In verse 45 it says that when we do this (i.e. behave kindly in the face of mistreatment) then it shows whose children we are. It shows others that we are indeed children of our Father in Heaven. And perhaps through our loving actions and reactions to “difficult” people, we will be able to show God’s love to them and hopefully win them to Christ.

To sum up, we are actually called to perfection. Whoa!  We are to be “little christs”.  That is the what the word Christian means. And once, again one cannot do this unless and until one knows the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. That means being in-dwelt by His Holy Spirit and being fully surrendered in mind, body, and soul to Him and His Grace and Wisdom and Love.

I hope that if you are not already a Christian, that you will perhaps have an encounter with another Christian who will be able to show you this type of love, so that you can believe it is REAL and that God/ Jesus is REAL. 

I feel that Christians fall short, and that is sad- because we may be losing opportunities to win souls. And that is what we are told to do. It is the Great Commission for believers. I pray we will step up to this high calling by God’s wonderful grace.

May the Love of Christ be yours today.
