That is what the media wants from you, to live in terror, to fear that the oceans will rise and wipe out Hawaii or that there is a rash of crime and you are the target. Compounded with legitimate fears it is amazing that any of us function at all. I was recently impressed by a friend of mine facing potentially terminal cancer, but he was not fearful. To be more accurate he was not worried about death. He was more worried about the discomfort of chemo than he was about the prospect of dying.
I have noticed that believers who have accepted Christ as their savior generally face potentially fatal events with far less trepidation than those that are in any other religion. There a grace and peace that believers in Christ have that provides an assurance of what will occur after death. That assurance is not one of a mental understanding but one of a heart understanding that is often described as from the holy spirit. Beyond the indisputable events of Jesus’s death and resurrection that to me is proof of that reality. It is the impact of that reality on this world.
Fetuses burned for energy in the UK, 15,500 fetuses incinerated. You may ask what this has to do with us. It speaks to the respect for life, not just babies, but all life that a society has. Once a society becomes sufficiently socialized and people are nothing more than numbers who get the same ration from the government, then life has no value. The pro-abortion crowd often says that they want non-religious reasons to support being pro-life. Below are a few.
If as a society we don’t respect life we will:
Have more senseless crime. (Already happening.)
Have fewer stable families. (Already happening.)
Have more unstable children. (Already happening.)
Kill our old people to save on medical costs or inconvenience. (Happening in Europe.)
Lose the experience of neighbors helping neighbors. (Already happening.)
Watch our prosperity decline. (Already happening.)
Have fewer in society that can support themselves as adults. (Already happening.)
Move from late term abortions to active infanticide. (China already does this.)
If we want a stable prosperous society we should ban abortion and promote the value of life. That value should be promoted for every child that grows up and reaches for opportunity. It should be communicated to every adult that they are worth something and valuable. It starts with the individual but makes for incredibly strong prosperous communities.
