“Fellow-citizens, we cannot escape history. We of the Congress and this administration, will be remembered in spite of ourselves. No personal significance, or insignificance, can spare one or another of us. The fiery trial through which we pass, will light us down, in honor or dishonor, to the latest generation.” - President Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln wrote this to Congress one month before he signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This morning it was quoted by Pro-lifers at a press conference. At this same conference it was said that any one that voted for this bill could no longer call themselves this for they will have placed the lives of the unborn children into the hands of this country's most pro-choice president yet. These people depend on the hope that President Obama will pass an executive order that will not allow Federal spending on abortion, but as one of the representatives said, "the executive order is an illusory promise that won't stand for a week..."
As I begin to go through God's word, I am struck by Genesis 2:7, "And the Lord God formed man out of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul." The same man who quoted Lincoln also said the image of God is being ignored and destroyed. God gave man life. Earlier the Bible says, " So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them."
These men who are seeking to pass this bill are suppressing the truth in unrighteousness, they are short sheeting history. God had Israel decimate the Amalekites for killing the children in their women's wombs. Rome fell when they destroyed the image of God through abortion, homosexuality, pedophilia, and murder.
I will continue on other themes of Genesis two, but this verse applies so much to our day and age. God set up so many key principles in the first days of creation, if we would only listen, understand, and live according to this ultimate moral standard.
