Years ago, I was a progressive democrat that sought to undo the world of its hold on religion and its forced morality on the world. I was of a mind that everyone evolved into a so-called salvation so that everyone went to Heaven because a good God wouldn’t make a place like hell, anyway. Back then I believed in gay rights and abortion, I believed that all religions were good and came to the same God, and I believed that anyone that didn’t feel my way would be dangerously close to being classified as a mongrel hater that deserved prison.
On a mid December day in 2001, I was introduced to Jesus Christ. In an instant too small to measure, I knew that all I thought I knew was wrong about nearly everything; I had been deceived my entire life to believe anything from anyone that had a bunch of initials behind their name.
I really didn’t know what to do about this salvation I now had, so I picked up the Bible and started to read. I learned so much about how wrong I was but it was liberating. First thing I ‘got’ was that my Salvation was NOT by accident nor is there any other road to God but through Jesus Christ. I also learned that homosexuality is an abomination to God and should be to me – What cannot fulfill the plan of God is NOT of God nor the will of God.
Then one day, years and years after my own abortion, God let me in on a little secret…that ‘what’ I had aborted was a living human being. That simple fact was more than I could ever bear…I killed my own child.
Deception is in the eye of the beholder. Too many women and men either don’t believe abortion kills a child or they choose not to. I find that all too often people get along in life believing what they need to believe in to survive or to benefit from it. I know I did.
I am beleaguered by people that somehow benefit from killing unborn children, and not just the abortion providers. I’m talking about legislators and the clergy that espouse ‘choice’. The Bible says we cannot serve two masters – how can Republicans and the Church be pro-choice? Only God knows that answer, but I assure you of one thing: God may allow this folly (and others) but He is also giving them the grace and mercy to come back to the truth and repent…it’s called ‘free will’.
So, while I came to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and realized that I had to repent and be forgiven, so do others that thumb their nose at God. If people really knew God by reading His Word – I’m talking to the Church here – then we wouldn’t have churches teaching their congregations to embrace homosexuality, to kill our unborn and accept all religions as the way to God and Heaven instead of Jesus, as is the PLAN OF GOD.
Truly, as a nation, most people in the Church and the Government is deceived to their own specifications for their own benefit. God did not give us a plan too hard to follow or understand. Simply, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
