By our fruits we are known…

A trio of stories that came across the Internet today.  Each one highlights what is so terribly, tragically wrong in our country with our families — Mom’s making their children sick; Mom’s murdering their children; Doctor’s taking life instead of protecting it; a country encouraging Mom’s to do anything but the right thing.

This is sin — “all the inclinations of man’s heart are only evil all the time” (Genesis 6:5; Genesis 8:21).  God said it about humanity before the flood.  He repeated it after the flood when there were only eight believers.  Only evil.  All the time.  Below is the evidence.  This puts the lie to all the talk about us being essentially good, or basically moral, or having a will able to do what is in us and please God somehow.  This is what we are, apart from Christ — “Apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:5).

  1. >> West Philadelphia abortion doctor killed seven babies with scissors

    It’s hard to imagine how you could live with yourself, snipping the spinal cords of live-birth babies in their eighth month…
    Especially when I think of my cousin & his wife who are currently struggling to keep their premature baby alive, that was only in its sixth month when born.
