As we approach September 11 on our calendars once again a thought just occurred to me. Not including the hijackers, 2974 people were murdered on 9/11 2001. Yet, every day in this country an average of 3,000 babies are murdered through abortion. This is considered a right and a moral good as a foundational plank in the Democratic party.
“The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to choose a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay, and we oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.” According to the Grand Rapids Press, “The plank in support of abortion rights is even stronger than usual….Gone is the phrase from the past that abortions should be safe, legal and ‘rare.” (Editorial, Grand Rapids Press, 8/26/08)
As I sit here today, I wonder if a vote for the Democratic party is really a vote for the amount of deaths that occurred during 9/11 every day for unborn children? Think about that…over 3000 murders every day of those that are the most vulnerable. And they call this a right? And they want the taxpayers to pay for it. Something is deeply wrong here.
In the next couple of weeks I will be making several further postings on essentials of the Christian faith. As a prelude to those postings, here is an excellent video that begins to address the issues of the Fall and evil.
It is time for the truth about abortion. Democrats this year want to emphasize that they are the ones that stand for caring for the “least of these”, yet have somehow forgotten those who are truly least — the unborn.
With such statements as “god is still creating”, candidates for ministry and pastors within their statements of faith, reject traditional orthodox protestant reformed theology, in favor of liberalism and neoliberalism. Gone is a personal theistic God who reveals himself infallibly within the pages of scripture, in favor a monistic (all is a part of god) belief system. Thousands of those who hold positions of leadership within Christian churches sign onto statements that affirm Darwinistic evolution, thereby rejecting historic orthodox Christian positions. The essential truth that a personal God created all that exists out of nothing (ex nihilo) is constantly maligned and rejected.
I believe that it is time to stand firmly upon another absolute essential of Reformed Faith.
All of the universe, both the physical reality and the spiritual (unseen) reality was created by God ex nihilo (out of nothing) by his powerful word (John 1:1-3, Genesis 1:1). The universe was established by a sole and sovereign Creator, who went about his task unaided by any helpers, and unimpeded by any opposing forces (Gen. 1, Rom. 1:20, Eph. 3:9). Everything we see around us in nature is not a god or a part of the One God but is created by the One God (Gen. 1). The spiritual realm is also created by God and did not always exist (Gen 1:1). Before the creation of the universe, God was the only reality, and the nonexistence of other beings or powers serves to highlight the divine unity which is the very opposite of the diversity which is to characterize the created world (Gen. 1:1, John 1:1,2). All things are created by the Father through the Son (1 Cor. 8:6, John 1:3).
