What About Those Inconvenient Americans?

Abortion.. it's still a very heinous act no matter how many in your house or in the White House are for it!

Would it bother us a bit more if they used guns?

Would we view it differently then.. you know, for what it really is? If you think about it with an open mind for a moment, wouldn't that be less painful than many partial birth methods that are used today?

Perhaps you are now a parent with an inconvenient American on the way and need more info on this subject?

Liney and I just watched a group of passionate people out protesting. They were picketing McDonald's yesterday for how this company treats the animals that they serve under those golden arches.

It was interesting. This secular group used really gory looking bloody pictures on their placards that they held up and they probably even hurt their own cause that's totally in favor of protecting little animals. How? By scaring some little hungry children.

Don't get me wrong, I don't have all the facts about Ronald's hang out. I'm not sure how humane McDonald's and their partners really are with that whole process.. they probably could do it all in a much better way. Dunno, but how about with little people on the way in this Land and what about the old people these days? It just made me stop and think.

If we are so "for change," n "choice" and the care of all people in this country.. then I have a basic question? What rights do unborn Americans have? What rights do the elderly have with their future medical treatment? What about you when you get old? What will the government allow for you and how will they counsel you n your family regarding your future welfare?

Should we be more concerned about chickens headed to the fast food restaurants in our neighborhoods than the people living there? Do very small (preborn / halfborn) Americans and older Americans have any rights that will protect them? What does God have to say about all this? How can the preborn people even get the opportunity to choose?

Woe to the country that calls what’s whacked, right.. that turns it's back on the weak of it's own land! The Bible affirms what I’m talking about saying, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, And prudent in their own sight!” (Isa 5:20-21). What about adoption when so many parents are waiting to adopt? Why do obvious simple solutions for the issues at hand ..that we try to over-complicate, need to remain above our pay grade to properly address? HELLO! Isn't this almost 2010? Wanna know where change needs to start?

Doesn’t all this vehement debate today stem from a root problem that’s intentionally being overlooked? Isn’t it because we Americans (for the most part) are not right inside our hearts? We in this country (yes, for the most part) have long since bailed from a meaningful and right love relationship with God.

We've become so hardhearted, we are distracted with busyness, we are still impure—we love pleasure, self, entertainment, the famous, youthful beauty and sex way too much in this society. The fornicators, porn n sex addicts, the family breakers.. all of us sinners need to hear that Christ is still fiercely holy, that Hell is still a real destination and that God cares about the weakest among us! He alone has and is the Solution.

Muse over this some: All acts of humans strengthen habits. The more temptation is wrongly responded to.. I mean the more it is acted upon sinfully, the more it will be strengthened with you. And it can also be like that with our gifts and graces in Christ if we would only turn.. yes, but for the good of many instead of the destruction and pain of many.

Think about sensual suicide for a moment. God says, "He who commits adultery destroys himself" (Prov. 6:32). It ain't like shaking hands or kissing people and others are ill-effected long term.

God says, “Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell forevermore. For the Lord loves justice” (Ps. 37:28). Hey gang, Jesus Christ was a busy Man as he walked on this planet, but He never got too busy to take time for the weak individual and how to protect that person. He took the time to even teach small groups about what to all-out go for and what to totally avoid for safety's sake. Why do we view Him as such a kill joy? Don't we set boundaries for our kids at the park?

A Christian's whole life should be in connection with and drawing upon God's strength to stand against what's clearly wrong.. to stand up for all that's right! It ain't about being pleasured all the day long or being popular! Your life should be nothing but a visible representation of Christ who is radically holy!

Just think something ought to be said for people even more than for mere cows that end up in a Big Mac! Yup, REAL men and women hate evil and they prayerfully fight to protect others but in a right kinda way. They hang in there with the Lord and with their family avoiding all that hurts em. They go the distance with Jesus and loyally serve Him wholeheartedly—no excuses. Why? Cuz the old, the young, the middle-aged and you matter more than you know!
