As a Christian, my wife and I try to use God's word as our guidance in daily life, and we pray seeking His will for our lives. We don't always get it right, of course. Sometimes we are distracted by the trappings and goings-on of Earthly life, and self-centered priorities. But we work daily to do better. It puzzles me, though, when Christians so determinedly turn a blind eye to what God's word tells us about life. During this Sanctity of Human Life Week, I believe it would help to review a critical passage in the book of Psalms:
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalms 139:16
All of life comes from God, and by His word he "knows" us before the world knows us. He knows the number and substance of our days before the first of our days has begun. By whose authority, then, are lives terminated before birth? For 40 years, since the Roe decision, this country has permitted (and funded) the killing of 55 million unborn children. It's high time those who profess to seek God's will for their lives, but support abortion (or refuse to stand against it), to remove their blinders from what God's message clearly tells us.
A recent tweet from Pastor Rick Warren hits the nail on the head:
@RickWarren: A Christian’s highest allegiance is to neither a donkey nor an elephant, but to #TheLamb. Anything less is idolatry.
Call your legislators in Frankfort, and insist they pass Pro-Life legislation THIS YEAR. For the last eight years, such legislation has been killed in the Kentucky House of Representatives. The Majority Party Representatives who cover part of my 3rd Senate District are Martha Jane King (Todd and Logan Counties), Brent Yonts (Greenville), and John Tilley (Hopkinsville). If these bills die in committee again, INSIST that these three use their influence to file a discharge petition bringing these bills to the House floor for a full up or down vote.
Call at 1-800-372-7181 and leave a message for any state legislator.
