The Thinning of the Herd


It is nature’s way to thin the herd so that only the strongest survive. Sometimes it is through disease, famine or petulance and other times it’s through attrition, succumbing to other species (lions, tigers or bears) or from humans. It has never been nature’s way for animals, fish or birds to kill their young simply because it is inconvenient.  

Can you imagine the possibilities that are cut short when someone dies prematurely?  Future scientists, teachers, presidents, corporate executives, workers, inventors, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts or uncles gone forever without realizing their potential.

What if Einstein, Washington, Ford, Lincoln, Johnson (take your pick), Gore (who invented the internet) or someone like Churchill everyone with potential, created by Almighty God with a purpose, they had been aborted by today’s societally acceptable standards pre-born in the womb or shortly after birth?

The world would be a totally different place.

Politically motivated factions are fighting against the rights of millions to draw their first breath, the right to life as ordained by God and protected by our founding documents – The right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness all in the name of women’s rights to choose.

It was God who created mankind – one man and one woman, told them to go forth and multiply and have dominion over the animals on the land, fish in the sea and birds of the air. Nowhere in the book of Genesis do I read that killing another human being is a God-given right or acceptable in his sight.

The bible teaches us there is nothing new under the sun. In fact life goes around in a circle. Back in the days of the bible people sacrificed their children to Baal as we do today only calling it Convenience.

Have we learned nothing?

There is no right side to the argument for justifiable abortion, not even when it threatens the life of the mother. God creates life. Every life has a purpose. Not one life is replaceable or irrelevant. No life has less value than another. We are each created equal and in the image of God.

The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away.

Man has no business thinking or acting as God. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, unless of course that action is sinful (willing disobedience to God). In that case the reaction or wages of sin is death. Without God death is eternal separation from anything good. Only God is good – All the time. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
