This is America.
The land of diversity and freedom and change.
Change is good, but we’re seeing too much change. We’re seeing the kind of change that tears us down; eliminating the beautiful and weak in its wake.
The New York Capitol is a beautiful building, but its foundation was built on sand.
No, this is not a post of random musings.
We recently saw New York legalize abortion up to nine months as well as during delivery. People around me are applauding this new law, but I’m sick.
I’m sick and angry. Heartbroken, too.
People compare abortion to child sacrifice, but I believe that it isn’t even comparable. The people of old who practiced child sacrifice at least believed that they were doing the right thing in their own broken, twisted way. They sacrificed for safety and provision. They sacrificed to save their own lives. While, yes, that was selfish and sick and wrong, they at least did it because of their belief in a deity. The WRONG deity, but at least it was a deity.
Abortion is beyond that. It’s murder in the name of lust, selfishness, convenience, and pleasure.
Yet abortion is one of the most fought-for “rights” and “freedoms” in America today.
There are more bills in more states that are much like the bill passed in New York. There are more spineless senators and governors and representatives who will bow before evil and spit at God.
This is reality. This is how Godless we are. This is America.
But I am not void of hope. I am not void of faith. And I am certainly not lacking in the knowledge that God is sovereign over this nation.
There are Godly men out there. There are Godly senators and representatives and governors who will (hopefully) make a stand for truth.
There are Godly citizens, too. YOU are one of them! So make your voice heard today. Stand up for truth. Be bold and kind and fearless in the face of cowardice and selfishness.
Do you fear God, or do you fear man?
“He has shown you, oh man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?” Micah 6:8
Some musings spurred by recent happenings in my home-state. I’m working with some fellow Texans to try and pass a bill that will criminalize abortion. It’s such a difficult, emotional work. But oh so worth it. I’m inspired by a present-day saint who passed away recently. Please read Jeremiah’s story and sign his petition. Share it, too! Jeremiah’s wish deserves to become nationally famous. https://jeremiahswish.org/
