The Sanctity of (Every) Human Life

(This is an adaption of a Sunday School Devotional delivered by Joel Kautt in January 2011)

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27 (ESV)

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” Psalm 139:13 – 16 (ESV)

Forty years ago this month, the United States Supreme Court found somewhere hidden between the lines of our Nation’s Constitution the right of a woman to end the life of her unborn baby. It has been estimated that since that time, at the very least 50 million innocent and helpless baby humans have been slaughtered before they ever breathed their first breath or saw the light of day. Just in the year 2007, over 1 million, 200 thousand abortions were performed in the United States. Doing some simple math, we can find that on average, an unborn baby human is murdered in America’s own holocaust approximately every 2 and a half minutes. It is a sad fact that there exists in America today an entire dedicated industry that generates billions of dollars of revenue at the gruesome expense of our nation’s youngest and most vulnerable citizens. The legacy of abortion advocates like Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, is a legacy of death.

The concept of abortion is much older than just the Roe v. Wade court decision. In fact, the practice of abortion has been around for many centuries throughout the world. The Bible actually tells us that during the time of Moses the people of Canaan sacrificed their children in the fires of their false god Molech.1   Sadly, the Israelites turned from worshiping their Creator, and began to practice this pagan and demonic ritual during the latter part of the period of Kings before the Babylonian exile.2 Today, non-Christians, and Christians alike are sacrificing their children on the altar to the gods of convenience and “choice” through the means of abortion. God fulfilled His promised judgment on Israel for their disobedience in murdering their children as an offering to their idols. One has to wonder how long it will be before God judges America for killing her children as an act of worship of selfishness and convenience.

As is often the case with sinful actions, those who favor and promote abortion believe lies. Namely they believe that it is acceptable to solve personal problems through ungodly means. Further, many believe that the living, unborn baby is not human, but rather just a “blob of tissue” at certain stages of its “evolutionary” development and growth, of course the Bible and good science both tell us otherwise. These people also believe that somehow a person has the right to do to an unborn child what would be legally classified as murder if it were done to any person outside the womb.

The Bible tells us that Satan is the one who comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but Christ came to give His life so that He could give us eternal life.3 Proverbs 8:37 says that all those who hate God love death. As Christians, we should love and protect the lives of the innocent, just as Proverbs 24:11 and 12 implies. We should be reaching out in compassion and love to those who are suffering the emotional and spiritual pain involved in the aftermath of an abortion. We should also be promoting the truth to those around us that God in His love, gave His Son to pay the penalty for our sins, and offer forgiveness and new life even to those who have made the choice to abort their unborn children.

Today, and every day, let us celebrate the sacred gift of life, and pray and work to help protect the sanctity of human life from pre-born to elderly, from conception to natural death. In doing this, we will honor our Creator who made every human being in His marvelous image.

When Was the Ice Age?

16 02 2012

Although secular scientists argue that there were multiple Ice Ages over a period of hundreds of thousands of years,1 we know from the Bible, that such a timescale is much too long to be accurate. If the Ice Age(s) did not occur hundreds of thousands of years ago, when did the Ice Age occur? The answer to this question is partially revealed in our discussion in the feature article regarding how the great Flood would provide the necessary meteorological catalysts to spawn an Ice Age shortly after the Flood. Using Biblical genealogical records, basic mathematics, and logical inferences, we can deduce that the Flood occurred sometime around 2,500 B.C.2 So, we can infer that the Ice Age took place sometime following the Flood. One meteorologist estimates that the Ice Age lasted around 700 years, and peaked approximately 500 years after the Flood, or around 2,000 B.C.3
