I remember many years ago, as a young minister from the United States, visiting and preaching in Germany. While there, I visited the Dachau Concentration Camp just a few miles north of Munich. It was one of the most sobering moments I would ever experience. Viewing the remains of the ovens, the gas chamber, and especially the notorious “medical wing,” where the psychotic Doctors of the Third Reich performed their evil and bizarre medical “tolerance” experiments on the prisoners, shocked me to the very core of my soul. It is hard to fathom man’s inhumanity and butchery of his fellow man.
Unfortunately, I’ve seen the memorials of this kind of demonically inspired evil around the world, from Rwanda to Cambodia. I’ve been in heartbreaking conversations with persecuted Christians in China, Russia, and the Middle East, so I know what unregenerate hearts and satanically inspired minds are capable of. And yet right here in the United States, “the land of the free and home of the brave,” there is a genocide occurring that makes much of the historical events of past genocide pale in comparison. And still, in the face of this atrocity, much of the church remains silent.
Since the passage of Roe vs. Wade in 1973, it is estimated that over 63 million babies have lost their little innocent lives. Dying in pain and horror, unable to choose to live or defend themselves, their lives snuffed out, in most cases, so the selfish, self-centered parents can continue their immoral lifestyle, unencumbered by the responsibility of a child, while they pursue their passions. Others choose abortion uneducated to the possibilities of adoption and the good that can come by choosing to give life instead of sudden and horrible death. And though the church numbers in the multiple millions, we shrug and pull our cloaks of silence over us, choosing to say nothing and avoid what we consider controversy.
In the last several days, an opinion citing the potential overturn of Roe vs. Wade, written by Supreme Court Justice Alito, was leaked and made public. What has followed has been pandemonium. The masses of pro-abortion advocates, like frenzied, insanely maddened fiends from hell itself, have stormed our nation’s capital, our major cities, and government institutions, our Supreme Court Building, and even threatened the homes and lives of our conservative justices, at the very thought, that their lifestyle of slaughtering innocent babes could be hampered.
As summer weather approaches, we could easily see cities in chaos burning to the ground, as this current, left-wing sinful government that embraces the sins of Sodom and an ancient and fallen Rome says and does nothing to stop the anarchy that is developing.
You may accuse me of alarmism, but I always pray before I write, and I always write in the light of God’s word. In all of human history, God has never allowed a nation or its leaders to stand who slaughtered the innocent. Pharaoh killed the Hebrew babes, God judged him. Ahab and Jezebel offered up children for sacrifice, Ahab bled to death in a chariot, and Jezebel’s broken body was eaten by dogs. Herod killed the babes of Bethlehem, and God judged him. Ancient Rome was rife with abortion, and barbarians overran it.
God is not blind to America’s sin of abortion. He sees people who call themselves Christians and also say they are “pro-choice,” or the US Senator from Georgia, who mocks true Christianity by calling himself a “pro-choice pastor.” Truth is….blatant sin and redemption don’t mix. “….what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? (II Corinthians 6:14)
God sees, God hears, God knows…. The clock is ticking.
