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.

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.

Hard to Look at Isn’t It?

This is  photo of aborted baby parts from 6-13 weeks old.  Babies are to be protected not thrown away like trash.

Please don’t have an abortion. There is help for you to keep your baby. There is also adoption.

You don’t want THIS on your conscience!!!!!

The Unborn – A Timeline

Fetal Development
From conception to birth

Day 1:  fertilization: all human chromosomes are present; unique human life begins.

Day 6:  embryo begins implantation in the uterus.

Day 22:  heart begins to beat with the child’s own blood, often a different type than the mothers’.

Week 3:  By the end of third week the child’s backbone spinal column and nervous system are forming.  The liver, kidneys and intestines begin to take shape.

Week 4:  By the end of week four the child is ten thousand times larger than the fertilized egg. 

Week 5:  Eyes, legs, and hands begin to develop.

Week 6:  Brain waves are detectable; mouth and lips are present; fingernails are forming.

 

Week 7:  Eyelids, and toes form, nose distinct.  The baby is kicking and swimming.

Week 8:  Every organ is in place, bones begin to replace cartilage, and fingerprints begin to form.  By the 8th week the baby can begin to hear.      

 

Weeks 9 and 10:  Teeth begin to form, fingernails develop.  The baby can turn his head, and frown.  The baby can hiccup. 

Weeks 10 and 11:  The baby can “breathe” amniotic fluid and urinate.  Week 11 the baby can grasp objects placed in its hand; all organ systems are functioning.  The baby has a skeletal structure, nerves, and circulation.

 Week 12:  The baby has all of the parts necessary to experience pain, including nerves, spinal cord, and thalamus.  Vocal cords are complete.  The baby can suck its thumb. 

 Week 14:  At this age, the heart pumps several quarts of
blood through the body every day.

Week 15:  The baby has an adult’s taste buds.

Month 4:  Bone Marrow is now beginning to form.  The heart is pumping 25 quarts of blood a day.  By the end of month 4 the baby will be 8-10 inches in length and will be one half of its birth weight.

Week 17:  The baby can have dream (REM) sleep. 

Week 19:  Babies can routinely be saved at 21 to 22 weeks after fertilization, and sometimes they can be saved even younger.

 

Week 20:  The earliest stage at which Partial birth abortions are performed.  At 20 weeks the baby recognizes its’ mothers voice.

 

 Months 5 and 6:  The baby practices breathing by inhaling amniotic fluid into its developing lungs. The baby will grasp at the umbilical cord when it feels it.  Most mothers feel an increase in movement, kicking, and hiccups from the baby.  Oil and sweat glands are now functioning.  The baby is now twelve inches long or more, and weighs up to one and a half pounds. 

Months 7 through 9:  Eyeteeth are present.  The baby opens and closes his eyes.  The baby is using four of the five senses (vision, hearing, taste, and touch.)  He knows the difference between waking and sleeping, and can relate to the moods of the mother.  The baby’s skin begins to thicken, and a layer of fat is produced and stored beneath the skin.  Antibodies are built up, and the baby’s heart begins to pump 300 gallons of blood per day.  Approximately one week before the birth the baby stops growing, and “drops” usually head down into the pelvic cavity.
