Continued Thought from Yesterday

I pulled up the Gallup Polls on abortion for the past ten years.  The results might surprise you as they did me.

Think abortions are okay under any circumstances:  39%

Think abortions should be highly limited (rape, incest, mother’s life):  58%

Uncertain:  3%

So the vast majority of Americans support the type of bill Iowa passed into law, yet the minority (liberals) think it should be permitted.

It is nice to know the majority have morals.

Thought for Today (5/6/18)

Iowa has passed a Heartbeat Law.  The new law says once a heartbeat is detected (about 6 weeks), an abortion cannot be performed.  There are exceptions made for cases of rape, incest, and medical emergency.

As soon as the law was passed, the liberal left started their rants blaming Christians and conservatives saying:

Men don’t get pregnant so they don’t have a say in this;

conservatives are trying to prevent women from owning their bodies;

“fascist Christians want set womanhood back 2000 years”;

“Republicans want to flood the nation with children that people can’t afford to raise”; and

“They better hope they have the money to raise all those unwanted babies.”

As I see it, this is the only response needed:

  1. Women have the right to abstain from procreative activities;
  2. Women have the right to agree to procreative activities with the male of their choice;
  3. Women have the right to use protection and demand their male partner use protection too;
  4. After #1-#3, women’s rights have ended;
  5. When a woman gets pregnant from engaging in consensual procreation, she and her partner are responsible for their actions;
  6. Since the government does not mandate who you have sex with, when you have sex, and where you have sex, the government has no business funding murdering your child so you can avoid responsibility;
  7. Unless you are the Virgin Mary, it took a male involved to create the unborn child; and
  8. Abortion (the murder of a defenseless baby) is an attempt to avoid responsibility for one’s actions.

If you cannot understand that the act of sexual intercourse creates a human life, you have no business engaging in sex.

If the courts decide the heartbeat law is unconstitutional because they cannot understand that life is life no matter where it is located, maybe we can have a conditional law that states as long as both partners that created the life agree to be sterilized, the abortion can be performed in the first trimester.

Thought for Today (5/5/2018)

Even though this is Cinco de Mayo, I had another thought I’d like to bring up again.

Though Isaiah prophesized Him in 17 different prophesies and Jesus fulfilled each and every prophecy, and Isaiah 53 correctly prophesized that the Messiah would come and suffer for our sins and would take our sins upon Him, many Jews still think Jesus was a common man, and a gentile.  He was (is) a Jew and a Rabbi born of a Jewish mother and therefore not a gentile.   He also fulfilled all the prophecies of Isaiah and therefore far from a common man.  Finally, Isaiah 53 speaks so clearly of him and the Book of Isaiah is the 5th of 8 books of the Neviim (prophets). So why does those who follow the Jewish faith still deny him?  Are they still blinded by the Sadducees and Pharisees, who to protect their own lavish lifestyles, convinced the Roman governor to crucify Him?

Isaiah 53 says:

“Who has believed our message
    and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
He grew up before him like a tender shoot,
    and like a root out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
    nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by mankind,
    a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
Like one from whom people hide their faces
    he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.

Surely he took up our pain
    and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
    stricken by him, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
    and by his wounds we are healed.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
    each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
    the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed and afflicted,
    yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
    and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
    so he did not open his mouth.
By oppression and judgment he was taken away.
    Yet who of his generation protested?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
    for the transgression of my people he was punished.
He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
    and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
    nor was any deceit in his mouth.

10 Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
    and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
    and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.
11 After he has suffered,
    he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
    and he will bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
    and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
because he poured out his life unto death,
    and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
    and made intercession for the transgressors.

Challenge

With summer coming up in the Northern Hemisphere, I have a challenge for you.

With the appropriate camping supplies, go camping for 1 week by yourself leaving all electronics and everyone else behind.  Spend that week w/o contact with any other person and electronic connection to the outside getting in contact with you and your spiritual self.  Keep a journal of your thoughts and experiences daily and then afterwards, if you feel comfortable doing so, post what you experienced.

I did this two years ago, except instead of a week I did it for a month.  Not only did I learn to become comfortable with myself, I also learned a lot about myself and my miniscule place on this earth, and I became in touch with my spiritual self.

Thought for Today (4/29/2018)

RIP young Alfie.  You were sentenced to death because your doctors in England knew not how to cure you and are too narcissistic to believe anyone else could.  You have gone on to a far better place while your parents are left here to suffer a lifetime of your absence.
