Words of wisdom for today

The murder of the innocents

The intent now is for pro lifers to sit down with pro choice and have some kind of meaningful dialogue about abortion. This is tantamount to sitting down with a murderer and have some kind of compromise that allows him/her to continue to murder people. I have heard the idea set forward that life begins at the first breath, but unfortunately for those who use this argument it is just plain not true. Life happens to be in the blood:

For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
(Leviticus 17:11)

Or does life begin at the first breath:

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
(Genesis 2:7)

This verse is not describing where the principle of life begins, but where the soul of man comes from. Of all the creatures that God made only man has a soul. The heart begins beating very early in an infant humans small body. The presence of a beating heart and the presence of blood testify to the sacredness of human life. It is murder to take the life of a human being, be it at the business end of a gun or at the end of a doctors instruments. What saddens me most is that we are going down a road now that can only lead to judgment from God. Many people in this great land of ours are going to have to stand before God and give an account for their actions.
