Bad Moon Rising

Abortion's time of reckoning by Alan Keyes

Once again, it seems, America is what Lincoln observed it to be in the years before the Civil War – a House divided against itself. Our law mobilizes swiftly to apprehend, try and punish the malefactor responsible for Tiller's death, while abdicating in the name of right our responsibility to render an account to God for the thousands of innocent human lives Tiller destroyed. Because we patiently wait upon the Lord, sincere pro-life advocates rebuke and condemn those who take into their own hands the execution of justice. We rightly believe it is on the whole more justly done by the institutions of government. But in our times government ever more defiantly abandons the obligation of accountability for the unalienable right to life, though it is foremost among the prerequisites of its legitimacy. The institutions of government are now in the hands of a rabidly pro-abortion faction, which ever more openly prepares to persecute those who labor by peaceful moral and political means to correct this malfeasance. Thus we tragically approach a time of reckoning such as in his day Thomas Jefferson saw coming on account of slavery. He accurately dreaded the consequences of government support for the supposed property rights involved in slavery, when he declared, "I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever."

It doesn't have to get so bad if people would wake up and stop doing wrong things. Stop murdering, stealing, lying and cheating. That means politicians, too. It's not like there haven't been warning signs, or that people haven't been warned. There were warnings before WWII also.

I don't know exactly what's going to happen and I don't know when, but I do know that God is merciful and that what is playing out is not written in stone.

  • It may be that they will listen, and each man turn from his evil way, that I may repent of the evil which I plan to do to them because of the evil of their doings. Jeremiah 26:3

  • The instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck it up and to pull it down, and to destroy it;

    if that nation, against whom I have spoken, will turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do to them.
    Jeremiah 18:7,8

  • Who knows? He may repent, and God may have pity and turn away from the glow of His anger, so that we do not perish.

    And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way. And God was compassionate over the evil that He had said to do to them, and He did not do it.
    Jonah 3:10

But what do I know? I'm just a fool who believes God.

Those guys are good, aren't they? They deserve an encore.

Or two.
