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.

Pro-Life Media- An Oxymoron?

The issue of tv programming has recently become foremost in my life and mind.  I have spent some time visiting a close relative with my young children. And this person, who claims to be a born-again believer has the television on 24/7.  This relative of mine loves to watch the most horrific shows. The person likes NCIS, CSI, Charmed, House, etc…. These shows are so filled with murder, rape, cursings, and other horrors and sins. I am in shock, almost.

While visiting this relative I had to work very diligently to keep my children away from the large tv in the middle of the family room. I had to keep their play pen in another room and really almost could not let them even walk through the room where the tv was located due to the fact that at any moment a picture of an autopsy or some scary music or a witch or demon was being portrayed on the boob tube.

This issue of Television viewing is very much of a “Life Issue”. I feel that the programming available has almost nil life affirming content. Maybe the only solution is either  chuck the tv out the window or perhaps get Sky Angel?

Romans 1:28-32 shows what tv is all about-

28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

I think the part about taking pleasure in those that are doing these horrible depictions on tv is where the sin really comes in. And in a home that has its airwaves filled by tv, one’s peace is disturbed. I know mine is.

The situation is sad. I can only work on me. But I do exhort you Christians who claim to love and follow Christ who died a painful and bloody death on the cross, to please reject the tv or the Hell-i-vision as it were.

We must choose life and most especially for our children. We cannot allow them to witness all of the trash and death culture of tv.  The tv cannot be the family altar!

God Bless and may He help us all to eschew evil in all its forms.
