Here are some things in life you just can’t avoid: Death and taxes come to mind, of course, and the seeming inevitability of the Cubs’ ultimate collapse. There are others. One of them is the inescapable reality that abortion involves not a collation of tissue but the destruction of a person, a human being.
This is not just a theological assertion or philosophical rumination: We know from medical science that from conception, the unborn child has the entire DNA of a fully mature adult. What changes at time of birth is not the humanness of the child but his or her place of residence: For nine months, the womb was home; for the remainder of a person’s life, it is the world around us.
Even the mass media cannot help itself. In ordinary stories, the personhood of the child pops up in the simple reportage of stories of the day. However much the pro-abortion movement has sought to shape the language of popular culture and public education, the fact that the little ones in the womb are, in fact, people, keeps intruding itself into public discourse. For example (bold and italics are mine):
- On Monday of this week, the ABC affiliate in Minneapolis-St. Paul noted that a “grand jury has returned an indictment charging a Buffalo man with three counts of vehicular homicide after a multi-vehicle crash in Lakeville killing two people and an unborn child.”
- On April 28, the Montgomery (AL) Advertiser had this headline: “Family grieves loss of woman, her unborn child.”
- In Bowling Green, Kentucky, the CBS affiliate told us late last month that a “Kentucky state investigator testified Tuesday that Kathy Michelle Coy, the woman accused of killing a pregnant mother and stealing her baby.”
- Yesterday, the Today Show news site reported, “Mom recounts saving unborn child from shooting spree.”
- Also yesterday, the Chicago Tribune, one of the nation’s largest papers, informed us that “Cook County Judge James Linn sentenced James Larry, 33, of Madison, Wis., to five natural life sentences on murder charges, two 30-year prison sentences for attempted murder charges and two 45-year prison sentences for charges of intentional homicide of an unborn child.”
These are only a few examples from just the past couple of weeks.
Seminary president Al Mohler has observed that while “The American conscience remains deeply divided over the question of abortion … the truth has a way of working itself into view.”
That view is clearly seen in every ultrasound, but is also known to the “law written on the heart” described by the Apostle Paul (Romans 2:15). We can euphemize our language, speaking only of “fetus” and “choice.” We can deflect the demands of intellectual honesty when confronted by medical fact and common reason. But in the depth of our hearts and minds, we know better. We know.

There are laws that have been passed to help keep peace and protect the innocent. God's Law prohibits murder but allows for execution for cause. The Ten Commandments actually tell us not to murder rather than the generic term, "kill." Lawful governments may determine that serial killers should be executed. If warfare breaks out, troops have to shoot and kill the enemy. But no one can look at an ultrasound, see the child inside and show that he or she has committed a capital offense.
So Darwinists and Eugenicists who hunted down and skinned aborigines, forcibly castrated African-Americans and have promoted the murder of tens of millions of babies are moral? The men who used Darwinist-inspired philosophy as an excuse to wipe out tens of millions of innocent people such as Hitler and Stalin and Mao are moral?
Every individual or group that was targeted in the Old Testament was descended from people who knew God and knew the truth and had decided to engage in immoral and beastly practices like child sacrifice and temple prostitution. That Dawkins is ignorant of the Bible to the point that he would make such a ridiculous statement is one thing, but the idea that millions agree with him makes him a great villain.
Richard Dawkins will not have the guts to stand before the God he has labeled, he will cower before Him with tears and desperate pleas before he is justly cast into the lake of fire for all time, separated from God and hope. I'll see it happen and I will know it is just.
Don't think I like the idea. If I could get through to Richard Dawkins and save him from his fate, I would do it. I am simply well aware of what the Bible teaches and what Dawkins says. His own words have consigned him to hell...unless he repents. God is not a respecter of persons, he will save a beggar and cast a king into hell. He will allow Dawkins to repent on his death bed if Richard is willing, even after living a life devoted to fighting against Him. God is Love. He will have mercy even above judgment. I wish every Darwinist who reads this blog rethinks the entire concept of the Creator God and find that Jesus Christ really is the Messiah.
I blog to tell the truth as a ministry and to help keep people from going to hell because of the lies of Darwinism. I don't do it for money but rather for the sake of others. So many commenters feel as if they are in a war with me and yet they are blind to what this is all about. I am not seeking to be right so they can be wrong. I am seeking to open the eyes of the brainwashed and help them to think critically about EVERYTHING and especially about the concept of God versus AnythingButGod.
Today our pastor reminded us of the story of Moses as a baby. The Egyptian Pharoah had forgotten Joseph and how the Hebrew had saved Egypt. The Hebrews had become slaves to the Egyptians and they were prospering so Pharoah ordered as follows at the end of Exodus chapter one: "Then Pharaoh gave this order to all his people: “Every Hebrew boy that is born you must throw into the Nile, but let every girl live.”
Then Pharaoh’s daughter went down to the Nile to bathe, and her attendants were walking along the riverbank. She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her female slave to get it. She opened it and saw the baby. He was crying, and she felt sorry for him. “This is one of the Hebrew babies,” she said.
So the girl went and got the baby’s mother. Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this baby and nurse him for me, and I will pay you.” So the woman took the baby and nursed him. When the child grew older, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. She named him Moses, saying, “I drew him out of the water.”
