Watch/listen/read any news today and you'll likely hear about the woman in France who reportedly killed 8 of her infant children throughout the course of seventeen years. Several reporters spoke of how "cruel, unthinkable, unimaginable" such a thing is. "How could any mother carry out such selfish, repulsive acts?" one even asked. The entire globe is somehow saddened by such tragic events. Even the most avant-garde, out-there, push-the-envelope of decency "secularlist" would likely show some sort of disdain when hearing of such news.
But let me ask some tough questions. Why is this woman not allowed to kill her own children? (Stay with me.) If she lived here in America, she would be instantly arraigned on murder charges and would, at best, serve out the rest of her life in prison. My question is why? According to this world's moral code, what did she do wrong? Is the broadly embraced agenda of self not blaring from the rooftops that women have the last say in the matter and if she does not want the child that's within her womb, she is deemed fully capable of ending its life, correct? As we all well know (hopefully anyway) millions of babies are murdered each and every day, throughout the entire world and yes, even in this "Christian" nation. Since the year that I was born, 1973, approximately 50 million living beings, created in the image of God have been "legally" murdered and cast aside like expendable garbage in the United States alone (roughly 3,700 per day). There are roughly 42 million reported abortions worldwide each and every year (115,000 per day).
So, with these stats in mind, and this being "legal" and socially acceptable in millions of Americans' eyes, why in the world is anyone so saddened and appalled at how a woman can kill 8 of her own children in her own home? Again, according to the patterns of this world, what's the big deal? Isn't it her choice? Some might say, "Of course not. This is different!"
OK, so let me get this straight. It's an atrocity to kill your own children, but socially acceptable to pay someone to do it for you? Ohhhh, now this makes sense. This world is a biased, irrational, hypocritical disaster and I grow to loathe it more and more with each passing day. To all of the Christians who read this, don't reach for your picket signs and megaphones just yet. Attempting to "Christianize" government and the laws therein won't solve these types of issues (Most Christians think God is even somehow pleased that we so willingly kill His "enemies" for Him, so we're a million miles from an on earth as it is in Heaven nation). Getting "America to turn back to God" won't do it either because where we were in the "good 'ol days" is just following a better moral code, not biblical holiness that God desires. The Kingdom of God will never be made complete in America – ever. It is a Kingdom that is not of this world, not even America. Sorry Christians, all of the "heathens" who "deserve God's wrath and judgment" will be around until Jesus returns. The Christian pipe dream that envisions everyone dressing up and smiling as they drive to church services on Sunday morning is just not a coming reality.
Sadly, a flaming arrow of judgment is in the bow, pulled back and about to fly as we speak. America is likely the bull's-eye as She blatantly stands up strong with Her chest puffed out and head held high, telling God with Her actions that She's got it all figured out without Him. Secular and Christian alike. Whether it be Her lofty forms of godliness or Her outright defiance of Him, America is an arrogant and selfish land teeming with disobedience to the laws of the Lord. I too am constantly reminded of what I must daily lay down that this American agenda and moral guidelines declare as right and just. I choose to live for one Kingdom alone. While many cling to morality and unbalanced judgments, I cling to a Kingdom that is not of this world. I want to be an Ambassador for Christ, not pledging my allegiance to a flag and for which it stands, but to a King and His Kingdom. We need a higher standard than that of moral guidelines that are ever-changing and always depend upon your locale. It's time to face our hypocrisy and attempt to make changes in our thought patterns and actions.
God show us mercy for what we've done, in Your name, the name of America and in our own. Your actions have deemed us worthy, despite our pride and disobedience. Open blinded eyes to see what you define as acceptable and pleasing in Your site. As for this woman in France, reveal Yourself to her as she is no worse than I, aside from You. Without You, we have no hope. LORD Jesus come quickly.
