We need supernatural rescuing

Part two. First part was Intolerant people are not those peacefully voicing differing opinions

(Due to the length of the submitted letter, it was split into two parts. This is part two. The first part, Intolerant people are not those peacefully voicing differing opinions, is available at interior-news.com –Ed.)

Just wondering why at one end of the spectrum millions is being spent — and rightfully so — to save the lives of babies very prematurely, as young as 24 weeks, to even do extensive life saving surgeries in the womb — because truly the lives of all the preborn do matter! And at the other end of the spectrum the womb has become the tomb — because now the lives of the preborn do not matter, because they are an inconvenience or less than perfect and “we have choice you know!” But the baby had no choice OR voice! And those same people often march for the rights of animals, sometimes pregnant ones, who have “no voice.”

And what about the sex selection abortions? Where are the feminist voices of those who should be protecting the rights of little girls as they are being destroyed in the womb/tomb, simply because they are girls? And do those supporting abortion ever stop to think they are here to voice their opinion because their mothers choose life instead of death?

And about active euthanasia: we are actively supporting the “right to die” for people as young as 18 years of age with life threatening/ debilitating illnesses and those struggling with severe depression, mental illness and the inability to cope with life.

Editor’s note: While the possibility of providing this service to people who are not suffering a physical illness has been discussed, Section 241.2(2(d)) of the Criminal Code states people must meet the criteria of “their natural death has become reasonably foreseeable, taking into account all of their medical circumstances, without a prognosis necessarily having been made as to the specific length of time that they have remaining.”

At the other end we are wanting to pour money and resources (and rightfully so) to help teens who are committing suicide at an unprecedented rate because they can not cope with life. Should we be stepping back to ask why so much despair; why so much heartbreak where there should be joy and a zest for living?

We are spending millions on “stop smoking” campaigns because smoking causes lung cancer and plays a role in many other diseases. At the same time we are trying to make recreational marijuana legal, which also causes lung cancer and does terrible things to the brain. I am not speaking against legitimate medically prescribed marijuana!

And do you ever wonder about those “recreational” drugs that are taking the lives of our children? Could they not be better called wreckreational drugs? Are we pouring money into devastated lives that need truth, deliverance and freedom from drug addiction, not more safe injection sites and projects?

A segment of our society wants people to give up their guns and not put up walls, but those same people are putting in more alarm systems, locks on doors and moving to gated communities faster than at any other time in history. Guns do not murder people — people murder people. Our hearts are broken, they need fixing.

Why do we ignore the freedom of truth, self control and self respect as human beings created in the image of God and wallow instead in the sad and fatal “I did it my way” philosophy of life? Why are we choosing death over life? Are we going to destroy ourselves in our quest for autonomy? Psalm 119:73 New International Version (NIV) says, “You made me; you created me. Now give me the sense to follow your commands.”

Editor’s note: The King James version is, “Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.” Most sources quote the NIV version as, “Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands.”

We are like Humpty Dumpty: we have had a great fall and all the king’s men and all the king’s horses and all the government money and all the new plans and all the new programs and all the new research are not capable of putting us back together again.

We need supernatural rescuing! Should we perhaps go to the Creator of human kind, who is waiting with open arms and great love to show us truth and give us true freedom, peace and safety.

As we approach Christmas let’s remember that the Lord showed His love for us by coming down to us in our misery and lostness. Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)

And the truth is that, “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

He came to rescue us from ourselves and our sin — to put Humpty back together again.

Respectfully submitted,

Jenny de Jong
