Abortion & Repentance

The Supreme Court on January 22,1973. “legislated” the legality of killing the unborn. It is estimated that since that time sixty-one million unborn babies have been dismembered, poisoned, and discarded like trash.  Tax dollars now subsidize this atrocity by supporting Planned Parenthood, whose clinics are notorious for performing abortions.  In contrast, Crisis Pregnancy Centers, which seek to protect the unborn, supported only by donations, in certain parts of this nation have been harassed by regulations that hinder their work.

God removed Judah as a nation because “of the innocent blood which he had shed” (2 Kings 24:4).  Manasseh, their king, had led the way in sacrificing children, usually the first-born, to the Canaanite fertility gods.  Their goal was more riches and pleasures for themselves!   Is this not closely related to the motives for eliminating the unborn?  God sent the Chaldean king, Nebuchadnezzar, to destroy Jerusalem and take thousands into exile.  What will he do to America?

God calls us to repent, with the promise to forgive: “Come now, let us reason together.  Though your sins be as scarlet they shall be white as snow.  Though they be red like crimson they shall be as wool” (Isaiah 1:18).  He gives this assurance with the death of His Son.  “Christ died for our sins.”  Sunday service time at Peace Lutheran Church is 9:00 a.m.
