An estimated 10 million people, Jews, homosexuals, Polish intellectuals, Gypsies, and others died in Nazi death camps such as Auschwitz. The cruelties these victims suffered are almost beyond belief. We recoil at the thought and many people today cannot even watch a movie or documentary about this horrific time in history. But, we cannot forget. Or, have we?
There are currently about 750 death camps spread across America. They are called abortion clinics. According to AFA Journal (Jan. 2011), Planned Parenthood alone accounted for 324,000 abortions in 2008 fiscal year. They also gladly accepted $349.6 million of your tax dollars to carry out their deadly mission.
At this point in time, over 50 million babies have been slaughtered. Where is the outrage? I don’t hear it except in certain quarters. God’s sixth commandment is “You shall not murder.” How do we as a nation, with still some Christian presence, justify this? We cannot. And God, will hold us accountable.
We pray for God to send us cures for cancer and heart disease. Maybe He did and we aborted them. We want someone to buy our home that has been on the market for two years. Maybe we aborted them. We want younger workers to pay Social Security taxes so we can get our Social Security benefits. But, we aborted them too. The price we pay goes far beyond the abortionist fees. There are real-life penalties and God’s judgment that is already descending upon us.
I pray that Christians will recapture a godly sense of righteous indignation concerning abortion and the many other moral issues facing our nation. I also pray that we will each get involved in whatever way God may direct. We each have a ministry. We each have a passion. Let’s obediently live out our calling in Christ and turn the tide.
The familiar passage below, II Chronicles 7:14, has a powerful promise included: God will heal our land.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (KJV).
