Joni and Friends

In 1967 Joni Eareckson injured her back diving into shallow water and became a quadriplegic, unable to walk or use her hands.  It would seem that someone in this condition wouldn’t be able to accomplish much, but Joni has experiences a successful life and even heads an organization called Joni and Friends whose goal is to help disabled people to live a normal life and to share the gospel with them.

Life Without Limbs

Suppose a couple that was expecting a baby had a sonogram and found that their child would be born without arms of legs.  Many would say that they should abort the child because someone with these handicaps has no chance of living a happy or productive life.  Anyone who thinks this has obviously never heard of Nick Vujicic.  Here is what Wikipedia says about him.

Nicholas JamesNickVujicic (/ˈvɔɪ.ɪɪ/ voy-ich-ich;[note 1] Serbian: [ʋûjitʃitɕ]; born 4 December 1982[2][3]) is an Australian Christian evangelist and motivational speaker born with phocomelia,[4] a rare disorder characterized by the absence of legs and arms.

Vujicic was born in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, in 1982, to Dušanka and Borislav Vujičić, devout Serbian Orthodox emigrants from Yugoslavia.   He was born with phocomelia without some fully formed limbs.

Vujicic has two small and deformed feet, one of which he calls his “chicken drumstick” because of its shape.[7] Originally, he was born with the toes of that foot fused. An operation was performed to separate the toes so that he could use them as fingers to grab, turn a page, or perform other functions.[8] He has been able to use his foot to operate an electric wheelchair, a computer and a mobile phone. Vujicic notes that he had an “amazingly normal childhood”.

On 12 February 2012, Vujicic married Kanae Miyahara. The couple has two sons and live in Southern California.[14]

Ending abortion

One of the first commands God gave to Noah after he left the ark was one prohibiting murder.

And for your lifeblood I will require a reckoning: from every beast I will require it and from man. From his fellow man I will require a reckoning for the life of man.
Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image.
Genesis 9:5-6

In 1973, in the case of Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court ruled that in the United States one class of humans, unborn children, was not entitled to protection by the laws prohibiting murder.  Since that time 59,000,000 children have been murdered without their killers suffering any punishment.  This failure to uphold God’s law places our country in danger of divine intervention.

You shall not pollute the land in which you live, for blood pollutes the land, and no atonement can be made for the land for the blood that is shed in it, except by the blood of the one who shed it.
Numbers 35:33

The lesser of two evils

We are often faced with situations where we must choose between good and evil.  In such situations it is easy for us to know what choice we must make even though it is often hard to actually make that choice.  But there are times when we must choose between two alternatives which are both evil.  We often encounter this kind of choice in elections.  We must choose between two candidates, both of whom are evil.  The usual solution is to choose the lesser of the two evils.

Citizens of the United States are facing such a choice in our current presidential election.  From a Christian point of view neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump would be a good President.  Some Christians reject the idea of voting for the lesser of the two evils because even the lesser evil is still evil.  That means we should not vote for either Clinton or Trump.  At one time a accepted this view and even made a post supporting it.  I had made up my mind not to vote for either Clinton or Trump, but to vote for a third party candidate or write in the name of a candidate.  I have changed my mind because I realized that even God sometimes brings an evil ruler to power to supplant someone who is even more evil.  What right do I have to maintain a higher standard than the one God himself follows?

Molech

The Israelites were often tempted to worship the gods of the Canaanites and the surrounding nations.  One of those gods was called Molech or Moloch.  He required that his worshipers sacrifice their children to him.  Here is what Wikipedia says about him.

Rabbinical tradition depicted Moloch as a bronze statue heated with fire into which the victims were thrown. This has been associated with reports by Greco-Roman authors on the child sacrifices in Carthage to Baal Hammon, especially since archaeological excavations since the 1920s have produced evidence for child sacrifice in Carthage as well as inscriptions including the term MLK, either a theonym or a technical term associated with sacrifice. In interpretatio graeca, the Phoenician god was identified with Cronus, due to the parallel mytheme of Cronus devouring his children.

Moloch

It seems inconceivable that anyone would be willing to kill their own children.  Perhaps it makes more sense when we understand the power behind idolatry. Read the rest of this entry

For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. (Exodus 20:11)
