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.

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?
