Ye have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment? Malachi 2:17
Have we come to the point that wickedness is exalted more than righteousness? This has been true for years in the entertainment industry, but now we see it becoming very prevalent in “real life” as well.
Nothing drives this point home more than an upcoming article in Ms magazine featuring thousands of women who have had abortions. This article is nothing more than political propaganda, published during election time to try and contradict the arguments of pro-lifers against abortion.
One woman, Tyffine Jones, had an abortion while she was in high school because she wanted to complete her education.
“I wanted to do something bigger with myself — I didn’t want to be stopped by anything,” she said.
It is deplorable that we have reached a state where life is no more precious than to be considered an obstacle to education, career, or lifestyle.
Some on the list had abortions because of anticipated handicaps in the babies. A 42 year-old mother from San Francisco, Debbie Findling, aborted a baby who would be born with Down’s Syndrome.
Have we been elevated to the status where we can presume to play God? Is it up to us to determine if a person should or should not be born based upon their physical or mental condition?
What’s next? If mental or physical prowess is to become a criteria for living, how far can we be from euthanasia for the elderly or infirm? This whole sordid mess is an affront to the wisdom and sovereignty of God.
May we not be deluded into thinking that just because God hasn’t called down fire from heaven upon this wickedness that He is standing idly by in a disinterested manner. I believe that God is keeping count of every life that is snatched away by this evil and will in His time exact vengeance upon this world for these atrocities.
