FIGHTING FOR A CULTURE OF LIFE — PART 3

In this depiction of the Binding of Isaac by Julius Schnorr von Karolsfeld, 1860, Abraham is shown not sacrificing Isaac. (from here)

It is a curious thing. God detests child sacrifice. Still, when non-Christians read Genesis 22:1-19, they often get hot under the collar. They get angry with God for daring to tell Abraham to sacrifice his son. Yet God kept Abraham from harming his son. In the end, God provided the sacrifice. He sacrificed His own Son.

In Part 2 of this series, we looked for an overarching explanation for the system problems   Alexander Hellene identified in his post,  Which Systems? *UPDATED*. In addition, we began to consider what it would take to achieve a culture of life. Why are we doing this? Well, we are experiencing serious cultural decline. Even the Virginia Commonwealth has people advocating what amounts to infanticide. Check out the following:

SYSTEM FAILURE AND CORRECTION

So what can ordinary Christians do? Let’s look at ‘s system problems and consider the possibilities.

Education

The Democratic Party and teacher unions have captured our education system. To maintain their monopoly, the Democratic Party and teacher unions have secularized public education using the Supreme Court. As a result, generations of Americans have not learned importance of Christianity in the formation of America. Instead, they were taught stupid things, like religion starts wars. To end the control that the Democratic Party and teacher unions have over our public schools, we need school choice. We need to go to our state legislatures and demand that our state governments give parents a voucher for each child and let parents choose the schools their children attend.

Will parents always choose the schools their children attend wisely? No. Do we always buy the automobile we ought to buy? No, but on the balance we make better choices for ourselves than politicians would make for us. Seriously! Who wants politicians to run auto manufacturing and sales? Letting politicians, people nobody in their right mind trusts, run our schools is just as dumb.

Romans 1:16-17 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Just Live by Faith

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel [a]of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

If we want our children to be just people, we need to let parents choose who will teach their children. We need schools that serve the interests of children, not special interests supported by politicians.

If parents want to send THEIR children to schools that promote serious Bible study, that is their First Amendment right. We should not allow our government to teach children to be ashamed of Christ, and that is what they are doing.

Economic

Because we have allowed politicians to control what we learn, we have raised generations foolish enough to believe Socialism works. Instead of believing that God gave us our rights, we now believe government gives our “rights”. Instead of believing we each have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, we now think our “rights” involve politicians giving us a job, our food, our clothing, our homes, our healthcare, our retirement income, a “free” education, and so forth. Instead of being a free people able to look after ourselves, we now need politicians to serve as our parents. Yet that can’t work. Politicians cannot be trusted to be good “parents”. So our economic system is not working properly. Because our “parents” — our political leaders — are too corrupt and self-serving, when they feel like it they will even abort us.

If we want our economy to work, we need to remember that God gives us our “rights”. We need to trust in God, not man.

Psalm 118:5-9 New King James Version (NKJV)

5 I called on the Lord in distress;
The Lord answered me and set me in a broad place.
6 The Lord is on my side;
I will not fear.
What can man do to me?
7 The Lord is for me among those who help me;
Than to put confidence in man.
9 It is better to trust in the Lord
Than to put confidence in princes.

University

Instead of being places where the brightest and the best among us seek the truth and learn wisdom, we have turned our universities into places where the best and the brightest among us learn to suppress the truth and become fools. Why? Government provides the money. So instead of serving their students, universities serve the interests of the politicians who provide the dough. If we want the best and brightest among us to become wise, we need to pay the wise to teach our children. We cannot give our money to politicians to hope they will choose wise professors for our children because they won’t.

When parents send one their children to a university, what should those parents be able to say to that young man or woman?

Proverbs 2:10-15 New King James Version (NKJV)

10 When wisdom enters your heart,
And knowledge is pleasant to your soul,
11 Discretion will preserve you;
Understanding will keep you,
12 To deliver you from the way of evil,
From the man who speaks perverse things,
13 From those who leave the paths of uprightness
To walk in the ways of darkness;
14 Who rejoice in doing evil,
And delight in the perversity of the wicked;
15 Whose ways are crooked,
And who are devious in their paths;

Is one of your children ready for college? Could you encourage them to go to college and recite Proverbs 2:10-15 with a straight face?

Immigration

Many of our elites would like to swamp our country with cheap labor and voters that they can buy cheaply.  Hypocritically, they point to passages like this one.

Leviticus 19:33-34 New King James Version (NKJV)

33 ‘And if a stranger dwells with you in your land, you shall not mistreat him. 34 The stranger who dwells among you shall be to you as [a]one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.

As this post explains, Israel did not allow foreigners to come into their land and take over their country. They made strangers subject to the same laws they were subject to. If strangers wanted to become one of them, they required strangers to become circumcised.

Exodus 12:43-49 New King James Version (NKJV)

43 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “This is the ordinance of the Passover: No foreigner shall eat it. 44 But every man’s servant who is bought for money, when you have circumcised him, then he may eat it. 45 A sojourner and a hired servant shall not eat it. 46 In one house it shall be eaten; you shall not carry any of the flesh outside the house, nor shall you break one of its bones. 47 All the congregation of Israel shall keep it. 48 And when a stranger [a]dwells with you and wants to keep the Passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as a native of the land. For no uncircumcised person shall eat it. 49 One law shall be for the native-born and for the stranger who dwells among you.”

Can you imagine the USA demanding the circumcision of new immigrants? Well, the Bible doesn’t require that anymore. Still, if we are going to obey the Bible, we should fight to preserve the Christian heritage of our nation, not blindly allow demagogues to seize upon our sympathies and greedy people to displace our own poor with cheap foreign labor.

Military

Few Americans remember how difficult it was for George Washington and the Continental Congress to get the troops they needed to fight the British Army. Washington had to find volunteers. He had to convince those volunteers the deprivations and the fighting were worth it. That is Biblical. See Deuteronomy 20, the Old Testament’s rules governing warfare. Consider all the exemptions.

Deuteronomy 20:5-8 New King James Version (NKJV)

“Then the officers shall speak to the people, saying: ‘What man is there who has built a new house and has not dedicated it? Let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle and another man dedicate it. Also what man is there who has planted a vineyard and has not eaten of it? Let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle and another man eat of it. And what man is there who is betrothed to a woman and has not married her? Let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle and another man marry her.’

“The officers shall speak further to the people, and say, ‘What man is there who is fearful and fainthearted? Let him go and return to his house, [a]lest the heart of his brethren faint like his heart.’

We need to keep an all volunteer military, and we need to do our best to make certain our leaders do not abuse the volunteers who protect our nation. Those people protect our loved ones. When we abuse them, we make damned fools of ourselves.

Entertainment

How we entertain ourselves will decide the values we uphold. put it this way.

Do I need to get started on how our pop culture is full of negative, anti-civilizational messages steeped in moral relativism, progressive propaganda, and postmodern meaninglessness? What was pumped into our heads as kids–created by Boomers–mostly depicted children as evil or at least an annoyance. (from here)

Is ‘s observation true? Think not? Then how do you explain the fact Democrats now want infanticide? What has gotten into those people?

We learn what is virtuous through stories and songs. That probably explains why the Bible is full of stories and even includes a song book, the Book of Psalms.

Parents must love their children enough to turn off the boob tube, regulate what their children do on the Internet, teach them to read good books (including the Good Book), encourage them to listen to good music, and make certain they play with good friends.

All of us must strive to set a good example for ourselves and the children we love.

WHAT DOES DONALD TRUMP HAVE TO DO WITH THIS SERIES OF POSTS?

President Donald Trump is one man. He cannot by himself turn our nation from its present course. Consider.

  • Education: Since our public education is still largely run by state governments, Trump has relatively little influence over it. To get the state out of the education business, we must elect state politicians committed to school choice.
  • Economic: The Federal Government has considerable influence over the economy. Trump has improved the economy by removing many unneeded regulations. To further reduce spending and lower taxes, we need to elect congressmen willing to cut unneeded government programs.
  • University: State government runs most universities, and the Federal Government provides a great deal of additional money, especially the realm of research grants and school loans.  Contrary to the expectations of some, all the money our government has poured into the University system has not reduced the cost of a university education or improved quality. The law of supply and demand does not work that way. When our government spend huge sums on or universities, that increases the demand for a university education. As the demand goes up, the costs go up. When we try to send everyone to college, the costs go up out of sight. We need to elect congressmen and state legislators who will stop wasting all this money.
  • Immigration: Trump promise us a wall, fence, barrier or whatever, and this is where he has taken his stand. The problem is that Congress controls government spending. That is, it is not easy for Trump to just go off and build something without Congressional authorization. Can Trump declare an emergency and just build the a wall, fence, barrier or whatever. Maybe, but it would be better if Congress reformed our immigration laws and provided the money for a wall, fence, barrier or whatever. Congress, not the president, makes immigration law. If our immigration laws are not working in spite of Trump’s best efforts, then we have to replace the congressmen who won’t do their job. Meanwhile, so long as he is making a good faith effort to fix the problem, we need to support Trump.
  •  Military: As commander in chief, Trump is doing a relatively good job. His predecessor was more interested in using the military for social experiments. Trump has focused on building up our military strength and then using it only when needed. When Trump has used military force, he has done so with relatively clear objectives and focused on protecting US interests, not nation building.
  • Entertainment: There is not much Trump can do about this. How we entertain ourselves is up to us.

CONCLUSION

It is in the nature of politicians to make promises, and it is in our nature to want to believe them. Even Donald Trump, because he is a salesman, has made promises. Because Donald Trump is a good salesman, we believed him. So now we have to assess the situation? Was Trump an honest salesman? Has he tried to keep his promises? Has he made a good faith effort?

I can only offer my own observations as an ordinary citizen. I think Trump meant what he said and said what he meant. I think he has done his best for us. Have we done our best for him? Have we kept our part of the deal?

Consider how Abraham Lincoln ended The Gettysburg Address (1863).

It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. (from here)

Generations of Americans have fought and died for the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We have a choice. Will we participate in that fight too? Will we preserve the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, or, for the sake of government-given “rights”, will we abort the life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness of all future generations of Americans, our children and grandchildren?

  1. I’m still reading the post, but it seems like the culture of indulgence led to a culture of anti-life. If the people pushing such strong pro abortion policies succeed, do they feel they’ve gained some power in life? Do they suffer such insecurity from their attitudes (like, for example, liberalism) that they feel they need that power in order to feel secure or strong? The power to determine who lives and who dies is in a way a godlike power. Do these people think they can be God by doing this? If they’re tempted to think so, then I disagree. Jesus is the God of creating life and Salvation of life. And there’s no other god except Him. They certainly aren’t acting like Him.

      I cannot say what motivates all the folks in the proabortion movement. I doubt they all have exactly the same motive. My suspicion is that most resent the claim that abortion is murder.

      We all have a natural tendency to have it our way. If a woman gets pregnant, and there is something inconvenient about it, the baby cannot complain. So getting rid of it, aborting it, seems like a good idea. Once you have gotten rid of a child, the last thing you want to hear is that abortion is murder.

Now universities are Leftist indoctrination camps which lead an onslaught on Christian principles — even in math courses..

      We project ourselves onto others. We try to understand what we don’t understand by building upon what we do understand.

      We understand our own hatred. We also wish to deny it, but it is difficult to repent of a sin when we deny it exists. Hence we see those contorted with rage accusing others of the same sins they commit. The accusers most certainly have personal expertise.

      King Solomon would have observed this is nothing new, I suppose. Racists have always most heartily declaimed upon the sin of racism. Sexists have always protested sexism with the greatest vehemence. Religious bigots always solve the problems of bigotry against their religion by cutting the throats of unbelievers. Thus, unrepentant haters solve the problem of hatred.

  4. At this point you’ve probably heard that a right wing organization that used to support Roy Moore scrounged up a thirty something year old medical school yearbook photo of your governor in black face next to someone in KKK garb.

    The long knives are out in both parties, and the Dems are pushing him to resign. Obviously, the governor’s 25 year old self did something beyond the pale here (really, no pun intended) that a life time of public service cannot undo or forgive, but I wonder if they would be so adamant if a perfectly acceptable African American Lieutenant Governor were not waiting in the wings.

    Both parties are capable of cynical grand standing when given any opportunity. This is why I prefer to be non-affiliated. That and the fact that I would hate to have every stupid thing I’ve ever done in the past 62 years, as TS Eliot put it,

    “formulated, sprawling on a pin,
    When I am pinned and wriggling on the wall,
    Then how should I begin
    To spit out all the butt-ends of my days and ways? 60
    And how should I presume? “

    I guess we will all eventually be judged by how we judge others, God help us.

You and your party are above all that over-the-top evil lying and cynical scheming. Nope, no means ends conflicts among the proud self righteous Republican elect. Right…

        Trump constantly lies and can do or say anything racist, petty, misogynistic and demeaning in real time, never mind a past that would gag the most cynical of self serving demagogues. His promotion of selfishness and hatred are cool with your party as long as Trump panders the fake news lies that your party likes him to spread. “Build that Wall”, that idolic monument to your own Narcissus, even if it won’t actually work to drown out the cries of the brown meek, the poor, the sick, the innocent children. No it’s all about warring tribes and scoring sick rhetorical blows in the fake news frenzy to enrage the base, a once proud party vomiting one baseless and hyperbolic hatefest after another, rapidly remaking itself in the image of Trump, in the image of that hate driven, fear mongering wall. Then Republicans can bow down and worship that wall, or else your priest and priestess demagogues will call you a “wimp”. The Devil makes us become our own hatred brother, our own death.

        Our God is Love. His justice is mercy and love. His life is the love that conquers death. We, even our enemies, are created in that image of love that only our own pride filled hate can blind us to.

        If Republicans think that they can hate their way into convincing disparate morally confused women not to kill the image of God growing in their womb, they are mistaken. If Republicans think that walling out desperate refugees makes them the party of life, then they are mistaken. If Republicans think judging their fellow Americans into warring camps of the evil them and the self righteous us actually promotes Jesus’ loving sacrifice, they are mistaken. And the fact that Republicans can sometimes point to Democrats similar mistakes does not make them any less mistaken.

          Does love solve all problems? No. Love is motivation, not a solution. The Bible has entire books devoted to wisdom. If we cannot distinguish between good and evil, we cannot demonstrate our love for each other. We just screw each other.

          Consider. Some justify abortion because they don’t want a baby to suffer poverty. Yet the Bible was written when the average person was materially far more poor than our poor. If the Stone Age Indians who once inhabited the New World could find joy in their lives, poverty is a silly reason to kill a baby. It is just another rationalization. If poverty is so bad, why not kill everyone?

          When poverty is a problem, should we help the poor or kill the poor? Democrats care so much for the children, but do they actually help anyone except themselves? Are Republicans much better? Do you think it possible that the solution to poverty might not be Socialism? After all, either Democrats or Republicans have to implement all those Socialist programs, and either party will make a mess of it.

            So folks can read for themselves. This is the relevant bit: “(b) 2. The physician certify certifies and so enter enters in the hospital record of the woman, that in their the physician’s medical opinion, based upon their the physician’s best clinical judgment, the continuation of the pregnancy is likely to result in the death of the woman or impair the mental or physical health of the woman.
            (c) 3. Measures for life support for the product of such abortion or miscarriage shall be available and utilized if there is any clearly visible evidence of viability.

            We don’t like to think about it, but sometimes extreme neurological conditions are a result pregnancy and childbirth. Paralysis, brain damage, and so forth.
            These situations often happen fast…there is not necessarily time to contact two attending physicians to have a chat session in time.
            And death is a very high bar so there are some practical limitations to the “only if the mother will die” standard. If she’s in dialysis for the rest of her life and subsequently needs a kidney transplant, for instance, that doesn’t ipso facto satisfy the “death standard”. It would satisfy the health standard.

            And at the end of the day, if I were in that position I’d probably roll the bones…eh, I’ll risk it. But my kids are in high school and college, we’re financially set and my loss wouldn’t be that big of a deal. I do think it should be my decision though either way, not the ignorant screaming masses.
            The worst thing about these conversations is, no one is listening. My statement is bound to be taken out of context and spliced. If I were on twitter, there would be a thousand replies of, “why do you support killing babies?!?!(insert expletive)”

            I’m kind of curious if anyone actually knows a person who had a late term abortion? I do. She was a mother of three (four now). She was pregnant with an anencephalic infant. That’s a baby with only a brain stem. There is no sentience…https://www.healthline.com/health/anencephaly#treatment
            She went almost to term…why? Because she was very anti-abortion, and could not imagine aborting an infant. So she waited until her kidneys began to shut down and she was told in order to give birth to an infant in the condition that Warmbier came home from North Korea, she would be on dialysis for life and that life expectancy would be very short.

            What doesn’t happen: New mother says, “Gosh, now that I’m really pregnant this thing is cramping my style, I feel mentally ill..”
            Doctor, “No problem, let’s chop this baby up…it’s be out in a jiffy”.

            There was a case many years back (think it was New Jersey). A shop of horrors, literally, where such things did take place. It was an illegal facility.

            The reference I cited includes a link to the bill. Just not obvious.

            Since one in ten women use to die in child birth, I am aware that pregnancy poses a risk to the well being of the mother. Frankly, I think any man who asks a woman to carry his child either does not know what he is asking or does not care about the woman.

            Anyway, existing law allows for an abortion when the life of the mother is danger. Check how Karthy Tran intended to alter the law. Here is what the source I linked to observed.

            Mental health has been repeatedly found to include just about any reason: financial strain, stress, the inconvenience of caring for an infant, etc. If the new bill passed, it would essentially allow late-term abortions for any reason whatsoever, without any limitation.

            Should the current standard be relaxed? Perhaps. Removed? Well, that is what Tran proposed.

            If that is true that the change would include “just about any reason”, such as financial strain, stress, the inconvenience of caring for an infant, etc.
            I do agree it is a horrible, unthinkable-level horrible, idea.

          1. If you get to decide a woman’s religious beliefs and what she has to do with her body, then ya, it’s real simple, for you.
