Choose Life

These statistics may or may not surprise you:

  • About 18% of all pregnancies in the United States end in abortion.
  • Since 1973, there have been approximately 55,840,222 babies aborted in the US.
  • There are approximately 32,000 American babies aborted each year.
  • Back in 1980, 18 percent of American babies were born to unwed mothers. 
  • Today in 2012, over 40 percent of American babies are born to unwed mothers.
Our country is corroding from within, with the family being attacked and destroyed most of all.  The main reason is a slow decay of morality and Christian values and principles in our people.  In just one generation, of not teaching our children about God and humbly submitting our will to His purposes and obeying His principles and precepts, we find ourselves in a wicked world, that will exponentially fall further, and faster, than ever before.  

‎"Woe to those who call evil good and good evil." 
Isaiah 5:20a

I had someone tweet to me this weekend, "I'm laughing so hard now bc the GOP wants 100% contol over my birth control choices...I want control over my own body."  
The problem with this mentality is that~ 
1) It's based on a lie.  
The GOP does not want 100% control over this woman's birth control choices.  The liberal left wants to add it to a federal healthcare plan (a.k.a. Obamacare) and tell others they must pay for it...even to the point of forcing some religious organizations, who do not agree with some birth control methods, to provide it, regardless.

Not only that, if the liberal left can provide it, they also have the power to take it away.  

Adopting a government controlled healthcare plan may SOUND like a good idea, especially when insurance can be so expensive, but over time, giving government control over something that they have no right even being involved in, in the first place, will erode our freedom.

Currently, the government is all for population control.  If you don't want to get pregnant with a baby?  Fantastic!  They will PAY for your birth control, so you don't have that unwanted pregnancy.   They are completely on board with you!!  But, let's just say, that you and your husband would like to have 5 children, instead of the 2 that they think is a good number right now - what is to prevent the government from telling you, that 
"No, I'm sorry.  We believe 5 children is too many children for your income level, house size, and too expensive for us to pay for your prenatal care and delivery.  There might even be expensive complications, that our country just can't afford.  You may NOT have more than the two babies, the number we will allot to your family.  You MUST use birth control to prevent further pregnancies from occurring, or we will have your baby aborted, fine you, or even imprison you."  
If you think that's an impossible scenario for the United States of America? Then, you are really naive and not paying attention.

2)  Many believe that birth control includes the abortion procedures.  
Abortion is one way that they use to 'control' births (or prevent babies from being delivered alive, full term).  

Sadly, women believe that to be 100% in control of their bodies, that this would include being legally able to abort the life of their unborn child, before it can be born.  It's their choice, because it's their body.  

Yes, it is their body, but once a life has been conceived, it's no longer just about them.  It's about TWO lives, now, and who gives them the right to take away a life?  If that pregnant mom would be murdered, the criminal would be prosecuted for a double homicide, not just one.  That unborn child is considered to be "murdered", because it is a life that has been taken away by the perpetrator.  So why is an "abortion" any less the removal of a life, just because the mother chooses to do so? 
 The bottom line is this - our society is fighting to have evil be called "good" and acceptable, and if you do not agree with them, then they begin to attack us, many times, personally, by making fun of our faith, calling us names, and being vicious in their rhetoric. Most of them are very angry people, who are angry and hate us, because we have the courage to call sin "a sin" and their evil, "evil."  

However, if you are a man or woman of God, then there is no question about what you think is right or wrong, good or evil, righteous or wicked.  God sets those standards.  GOD does.  Not you, not me, not some godless person who has been brainwashed to think it's about their body and their choice, when a little life is growing within them.  GOD.  And when a person decides he or she wants to inherit eternal life, (through their belief and obedience to God's Son, Jesus) they must turn away from their sin, repent from their transgressions, and follow God's laws and precepts.  And this is the problem.  People do not WANT to conform to God's ways.  They do not WANT to have to submit to anyone but themselves.  And when they refuse to follow God's definition of good verses evil, then they are rebelling against God.  

But if you choose to obey God - there are blessings in store for you!
"Now it shall be, if you will diligently obey Yahweh your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, Yahweh your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth.  And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you will obey Yahweh your God. ... And Yahweh will make you abound in prosperity, in the offspring of your body and in the offspring of your beast and in the produce of your ground, in the land which Yahweh swore to your fathers to give you.  Yahweh will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow."  Deuteronomy 28:1-2,11-12.

  • When in our country, did it turn from a blessing to have many children, to something that is looked down upon and prevented at all costs?  
  • When in our country, did it change from having a baby being a blessing, to aborting it is a choice that all mothers should be given and celebrated?  

How twisted our worldview becomes, when we begin to call evil "good" and good "evil"...

Let us consider this day, who you will decide to follow:  
1)God and His laws and precepts, 
2) the god of this age [satan], who is deceiving you, to think something that is evil, is actually a good thing for which you must fight?  

If you truly are a Christ follower, submitting your life to him, these things will become very evident and clear to you.  Good will be good, and evil things, evil, according to Scripture and to the God we love, serve and obey.

If you are fighting for the right to abort a baby, because it's your body?  Then, you, my dear, are being deceived in a huge way and your standard of good and evil, is based only on what people are telling you or your own sinful desires, not on the one true God who created you.  What voice will you listen to and obey today?

Choose life.

"But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, 
but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, 
I declare to you today that you shall surely perish.  
You shall not prolong your days in the land where you are crossing 
the Jordan to enter and possess it.

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, 
that I have set before you life and death, 
the blessing and the curse.

So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants,

by loving Yahweh your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; 
for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which Yahweh swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to give them."
When you choose life and choose to bow before the one true God,
Yahweh, then it will be come crystal clear to you - 
what is good and what is evil.
