Squaring the Culture




"...and I will make justice the plumb line, and righteousness the level;
then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies,
and the waters will overflow the secret place."
Isaiah 28:17

Can I Live?

Nick Cannon produces the most powerful argument possible for women to bring their children to term, even if their circumstances are difficult. Just shy of four minutes, and worth the time. This is not new, but it’s been brought to my attention, so here it is.

Incredibly powerful. If only this were required viewing before terminating a pregnancy.

If abortion had been legal in the early ’60s, then neither I nor my brother would be alive today. My mother would have had no one to help her now, in her old age.

My adopted son is the light of his mother’s and my life. As I watch him grow everyday into a fine young man, I cannot begin to express how thankful I am that his courageous birth mother, who already had two young children she was struggling to take care of, chose life for my son.

“chose life for my son”

Thank you RM for your perspective.

Thank God there is an increasing number of people in our society today who are choosing life for the unborn. Wouldn’t it be something if the revocation of Roe v. Wade came about even before the law was officially overturned?

I remember a pastor once pointing out God’s command to Israel in Deuteronomy 30:19 to “Choose Life”. He half seriously was saying God was “pro-choice”. Half, because he’s also “pro-life”. He certainly got me to thinking about that passage. And from it I see that God did allow his people to choose. But it was not a neutral, everything-is-relative kind of choice. It was between blessing and cursing; it was between life and death. It was obeying the Law or violating the Law.

Americans since Roe v. Wade have legalized the choosing of death and curse and the breaking of Law itself. But even after all that, there is nothing to say we can not choose Life and persuade others to do the same. If we wait for the Supreme Court to figure this out from on high, we might be waiting a very long time– certainly longer than nine months time.

“Now choose life, so that you and your children may live . . .”
