Trembling for my Country

Abortions since Roe

Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep forever.

Thomas Jefferson, 1785

I have always agreed with this sentiment of President Abraham Lincoln:

“Woe unto the world because of offenses; for it must needs be that offenses come, but woe to that man by whom the offense cometh.” If we shall suppose that American slavery is one of those offenses which, in the providence of God, must needs come, but which, having continued through His appointed time, He now wills to remove, and that He gives to both North and South this terrible war as the woe due to those by whom the offense came, shall we discern therein any departure from those divine attributes which the believers in a living God always ascribe to Him? Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman’s two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said “the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.”

If the Civil War was the punishment visited upon the nation for slavery, what plague will visit us for celebrating the “right” to abortion?

    In 1974, the legendary folk/pop duo Seals and Crofts released this song, probably the first pro-life song ever recorded. It was a gutsy move given they were at the zenith of their career at teh time and were hit with calls for boycotts of their concerts and by pro-abort groups as well as pressuring radio stations not to play the song.

    THE INTENDED MEANING OF LIFE

    Humanity has forgotten the real meaning of life.
    They are the victims of their invention of endless strife.
    Created in God’s image, Adam lived in paradise.
    Creating Eve, his wife, soon precipitated demise.

    They failed God’s only test and introduced the world to sin.
    Driven out in shame – would heaven ever open again?
    God knew man would sin, and the Son would reopen heaven.
    The Son would become man through the Holy Spirit leaven.

    The only meaning in life is to save your immortal soul.
    Your guardian angel will help you live a soul-saving role.
    Life in this world where both good and evil abound is a test.
    Reward for a life obedient to God’s will is best.

    The Declaration of Independence has lost its soul.
    It was overruled by the Supreme Court child-killing role.
    Marriage between a man and woman is God’s moral law.
    The Supreme Court is now being asked to call that a flaw.

    The God our Founding Fathers trusted is not now in vogue.
    He is being superseded by a socialist rogue.
    If our nation can’t regain the moral meaning of life,
    I can assure that it will bring us never ending strife.

  • Amen, Donald! Hosea chapter 8:

    1 Set the trumpet to your lips, for * a vulture is over the house of the LORD, because they have broken my covenant, and transgressed my law. 2 To me they cry, My God, we Israel know thee. 3 Israel has spurned the good; the enemy shall pursue him. 4 They made kings, but not through me. They set up princes, but without my knowledge. With their silver and gold they made idols for their own destruction. 5 I have * spurned your calf, O Samaria. My anger burns against them. How long will it be till they are pure 6 in Israel? * A workman made it; it is not God. The calf of Samaria shall be broken to pieces. * 7 For they sow the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind. The standing grain has no heads, it shall yield no meal; if it were to yield, aliens would devour it. 8 Israel is swallowed up; already they are among the nations as a useless vessel. 9 For they have gone up to Assyria, a wild ass wandering alone; Ephraim has hired lovers. 10 Though they hire allies among the nations, I will soon gather them up. And they shall cease * for a little while from anointing * king and princes. 11 Because Ephraim has multiplied altars for sinning, they have become to him altars for sinning. 12 Were I to write for him my laws by ten thousands, they would be regarded as a strange thing. 13 They love sacrifice; * they sacrifice flesh and eat it; but the LORD has no delight in them. Now he will remember their iniquity, and punish their sins; they shall return to Egypt. 14* For Israel has forgotten his Maker, and built palaces; and Judah has multiplied fortified cities; but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour his strongholds.

    Chastisement is underway.
    Religious Freedoms mocked.
    National security breached. ( members of Islamic brotherhood entrenched in administration. )
    2nd. Amendment threatened.
    The days when men of good character are told to stop reciting Scripture publicly or face the punishment of violating “hate crimes” is already upon us.
    We are there.
    Our silence has been deafening.
    Our apathy has been deadly.
    Our walk to the woodshed has begun.

    The present is the full flowering of the Great Apostacy which started with the Reformation (De-formation) and has grown apace over the past centuries. Many of the “protesters” have lost the plot, supporting the various abominations in our western society.
    End times are on us – but how long they will last, “Only the Father knows”.
    Buckle up for the momentum gathering of the Persecution.
