What We Hold In Common

Our Children

“Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but Him that sent me.”

Mark 937

Dear Friends,

Last week it was announced that the U.S. Supreme Court will consider whether the Mississippi Abortion law is Constitutional or not. The issue before them in reality is whether the detection of a heartbeat in the womb of a woman is sufficient to deny a so called ‘right’ to take the life of that small and undeveloped human being…or not.

No, it is no longer considered a ‘blob’ as the ‘pro-choice’ Planned Parenthood advocates used to call the out-of-sight, out-of-mind ‘fetus’. Ultrasound debunked that notion. It is no longer simply called a ‘fetus’, except by stalwart deniers. It is in fact a child being ‘knit together it its mother’s womb in early development in what is supposed to be the safest and surest environment to supply its every need.

Has it come to this? 9 People making a decision about a heartbeat?

Why has it taken so long since abortion was made legal in 1973 and over 62 million lives ended before they had a chance to breathe, to accept that human life, at some point of development, is deserving of protection?

We build Children’s Hospitals and raise billions of dollars to save the lives of children – sometimes before they are born – and experience great anguish when one is killed by a stray bullet, bullied, mocked, beaten, starved, or any other of the myriad of awful things lost and confused souls will do to them.

I will never forget the look on my Mother’s face as she watched my sister Jeannie take her last breath from the brain aneurysm that started 24 hours earlier, and in a private moment afterward saying, with tears, “parents should never outlive their children.”

Is there not a growing ‘child development’ and parentlng movement in the American medical and social services world, churches, and para church ministries? And what about the current political pressure by the left for paid parental leave when a child is born into this world? Does this not demonstrate our care and concern for children?

Are there not ministries to women who have had abortions and are tormented afterwards into their later years?

If the ‘fetus’ is so unimportant and easily disposed of for any reason, why do we celebrate when a young woman becomes pregnant, and when her ‘baby’ is born?

And why is the search for life – or even a clue – on Mars or anywhere else in the universe so important that it warrants billions of dollars of ‘research’ and technology, when the mystery of life is right before us in the eyes of a new mother and father, little sisters and brothers, and the newborn child itself?

Something is seriously amiss here. What is missing is any rational discussion in America
of the value, purpose, and potential of human life if it does not include what God said to Jeremiah the Hebrew Prophet: “Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb, I sanctified you…” (Jeremiah 1:5): and to Isaiah the Prophet, “Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things… (Isaiah 44:24).

This weekend Merrily and I had the joy of having two or our five grandchildren with us to help us with tasks that have become too difficult for us. They both, at 15 and 16, helped grampa finish splitting and stacking the heavy hard wood rounds from a fallen tree in our backyard, raked leaves and helped replant two growing sapplings.

In the evenings we watched the first series of “The Chosen” together. What a joy they are to us and have been since they were born and born again. And best of all they will be with Merrily and I in heaven, along with their parents. Jesus is their LORD and Savior. And that is joy incomprehensible.

“Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.”

Mark 10:14-16

In His Name

LORD God of heaven and earth, our creator and giver of life eternal, open the minds and hearts of all Americans to see that Your Kingdom is not of this world, and only known to those who are born again. We pray today for your grace and mercy as we call our families and friends to come to you as little children to find life and life more abundantly in Your dear Son.

In His Name we pray. Amen

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house; Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 5:14-16 KJV
