The State

God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son to die for His people. Expect no such sacrifice from the state-god. The government is that god, and its prime directive is to increase in power, and to defend itself against all assaults. The state, in spite of its protestations of caring, cannot love its people. The state has no heart, no soul. When someone in government speaks of compassion, keep one thing in mind. The government has only two tools to work with-law and force.

The state cannot or will not teach that some acts are intrinsically right and some are clearly wrong. Rather, acts are right or wrong as prescribed by government. And the public seems willing enough to follow the lead. The government says that abortion is not against the law, so it can't be wrong. The citizens of our beloved country are bowing down before an idol, and they don't even know it.

Don't misunderstand. Neither the president, congress, nor the courts are that idol. The government, the state-god, is our own creation. When Pilate brought Jesus before the multitude, he shouted, "Behold your king." The people cried out, "We have no king but Caesar." Yes, and no god but the state.

Excerpt from The Aborted Generation by Ronald L. Dart

He continues ...

The meetings in Cairo in September dealt once again with the idea that there are too many people on the earth and that "people spoil the environment." The earth goddess is a worthy consort to the state-god, and must be served whatever the cost to human life. The United States representatives went to that conference as missionaries for the abortion movement.

Earth First, right?

And again ...

Truth can come from surprising quarters from time to time. Not long ago, Mother Teresa warned in a speech:

"America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate of human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest gift-a child-as a competitor, and intrusion, and an inconvenience. IT has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters. And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners."

It is hard to understand at this point how "deformed" this nation has become, and even harder to imagine where it will all lead. Think of all the things the coming generation will be able to do-things that were denied to us. The coming generation, unhampered by any moral code except that of the state may be able to dispose of all the feeble, the old, the sick, the infirm, the mentally ill. Abortion will get rid of all the unwanted children, especially the crippled, the retarded, the blind. They will even be able to get rid of hyper-active children before they are born.

Think of all the savings in health care. Cost control will finally be in the grasp of government. Universal health care will be simple, because the "universe" to be covered will have been shrunk to manageable size. Perhaps the first generation to be disposed of in old age will be the generation that aborted their own children.

Will America look in the mirror and see the dirt, mud and blood on it's face and wash it clean and move on? Or continue to deny anything is wrong? I have a feeling I already know.
