Wisdom Respects Life

Children Are A Blessing

An activist district judge appointed by Clinton in California has decreed that a bill banning partial birth abortions is unconstitutional because it interferes with a woman’s right to control her own body. The constitution never gave anyone the right to abortion. Some activist federal judges have decreed it, and the National Democratic Party has made the support of abortion rights a major issue of their agenda. If people were thinking right, this one issue should destroy the liberal wing of the National Democratic Party, removing them from influence within a party that once stood for Christian moral values.
But a lot of people get caught up in the old rhetoric of class warfare, thinking that the Republican Party is the rich man’s party,  and that the Democrats are for the poor man, and so refuse to think straight. It should be enough that the Democratic Party is the abortion rights party, the party that supports judicial tyranny. How can a right thinking Christian support the killing of unborn children?

People who love the lives of children have worked to overturn the judicial tyranny that is costing one and one half million lives yearly in our nation. Those millions of children will be missed down the road, when the old folks may outnumber the workers.  If we had done the right thing, millions of babies who were killed by the abortion rights activists’ influence over young mothers would be alive today and entering the workforce.  But they were killed by people who did not care about the value of human life, and who did not respect the value of people to be productive in society and to provide wealth that is shared by all. People are a blessing, and they produce wealth.

The Bible teaches that children are a blessing: “Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.  Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth.  Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.” (Ps 127:3-5, NIV)
Large families are a blessing that is being missed by many today, because too many have listened to the liberal voice that says people are a problem, and that they should be eliminated to protect mother earth. The idea that too many people produce poverty because of limited resources is just plain wrong. Finally India and China are breaking away from the socialism that was the real cause of their poverty, and both economies are growing at record rates. People who have freedom to produce are a blessing to the world.  The people who multiply the fastest will inherit the earth in a democratic society. Foolish notions have doomed the wealthy nations to old age crisis, while the poor who have large families are preparing to inherit the earth.

We should encourage the births of more children. Grandparents have a greater awareness of the joy of seeing children grow up and take their place in society.  We need mothers and fathers who are loyal to each other, and who are devoted to their family’s well being. Such devotion will be rewarded: “Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in his ways.  You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours. Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your sons will be like olive shoots around your table. Thus is the man blessed who fears the LORD.”

“May the LORD bless you from Zion all the days of your life; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem, and may you live to see your children's children.” (Ps 128, NIV)

People are blessed by respecting the value of human life. It is a basic principle of God’s wisdom and righteousness. And what life is more precious than that of an innocent child, whose potential is yet to be revealed?
Do you want to be on the right side and support truth? Then put your trust in Jesus Christ. He is righteousness and truth. There is no fault in Him, nor in those who are washed clean by His blood, because His righteousness and sacrifice have purchased the pardon for all who come to Him in faith, and are part of His body.
Pray for our nation, that righteousness and justice may prevail, that God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We need to stand for truth and righteousness. That would be wise.

  1. Divorce may be the biggest factor in these mass murders and horrible crimes that seem to be more and more common place.
