Letter: Abortion is slaughter

In Wilma Gibson’s letter “God is a fair judge,” March 31, she wrote she chose the Democratic Party because she did not believe in giving all the tax breaks to big corporations and the wealthy. She also wrote, “We have so much to do, and why spend our time on something like Roe v. Wade that is over 40 years old?”

Wilma, abortion is the slaughter of millions of innocent little lives each year. What better way to spend our time than trying to save innocent little babies that God’s Word says “Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is his reward?” (Psalm 127:3) And it does not say as long as they are conceived by loving parents. “I was cast upon thee from the womb; thou art my God from my Mother’s belly.” (Psalm 22:10) God is the giver of life and to destroy it is to destroy his heritage and reward.

Forty or hundreds of years, there is no time limit on sin. We as Christians should do as Paul and fight against ungodliness as long as God gives us life. Then we can say as Paul did, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” (II Timothy 4:7)

Republican or Democrat, we should vote for the person who believes in the biblical principles of God’s Word. Christians should not vote for anyone who ignores God’s Word and supports abortion, homosexuality and same-sex marriage. The Bible is clear that these are grievous sins that he will not tolerate.

God is a fair judge, Wilma. Do we think it would be a fair judge who would destroy two cities, Sodom and Gomorrah, because of their homosexuality and just look the other way when we are following in their footsteps? (Genesis 19:1-28) No, for “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)

Our world is in the mess we are in because of our sins and taking God out of everything. The Bible says we should not think about what we shall wear, eat or drink or be of a doubtful mind. For God knows we have need of these things. “But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Luke 12:27-31)

  • Letter: Something to think about

    It has been better than four months now since Malaysia Flight 370 went missing. During that time we have heard all kinds of speculation, conjecture and opinions as to what happened to it. The only certainties to emerge are that the Malaysians fumbled the ball early on and there are some understandably distressed loved ones left to deal with their losses.

    Imagine this: One normal Thursday, you make preparations to bake a few dozen apple muffins for friends and neighbors, as you have countless times before. You bake the first batch without a hitch. Then, after you’ve placed the second batch in the oven, a loud noise sounds, your smoke alarm starts blaring, and your entire kitchen is full of smoke.
