Commercial surrogacy

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Commercial surrogacy

by Kaeley Triller Harms

Lengthy post ahead. I posted it as a FB note yesterday, but those things never get much traction, and the subject matter is important, though controversial. I don’t post this in condemnation but in caution:

Last year I sat in stunned silence at a WA State Senate hearing concerning the matter of commercial surrogacy. The proposed bill contained 55 pages of legislative text full of demands and bloviations about alleged parental rights. Its goal was to legalize commercial surrogacy without limit through the entire state. Read the rest of this entry

Advice for parents

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Advice for parents

by Zach Whitsel

I’ve always been hesitant to give parenting advice but having this fourth one has emboldened me! I feel like I’m ready! I feel like I have some credibility now! So get out your notepads, people, it’s advising time!!!

1. All that stuff you got at your baby shower, and all the rest of that stuff that you bought for your baby off of Amazon, just go ahead and return all of that nonsense. Diapers, wipes, and willpower are all you need! #Relax#NotABabyForever

Them Before Us

God established marriage as a lifelong union between a man and a woman.  One purpose was to ensure that every child would be brought up and trained by his biological parents.

Did he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union?And what was the one God seeking? Godly offspring. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and let none of you be faithless to the wife of your youth.  (Malachi 2:15)

Sometimes this plan is disrupted by the death of one or both of the parents.  This is unfortunate but it isn’t anyone’s fault.  But sometimes the plan is disrupted because of the actions of one or both of the parents.  Parents get divorced or conceive children without getting married.  Children may end up being raised by a gay couple; they have two mothers or two fathers, rather than having a mother and a father as God intended.  These situations usually come about because people care more about their rights than they do about the welfare of their children.  There is an organization called Them Before Us that seeks to remind us of our responsibilities to our children both by stories of how children are affected and by scientific studies that show that God’s plan is best.

Brainwashing

God commands parents to teach their children the Bible.

And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
Deuteronomy 6:6-7

There are people who don’t believe the Bible and don’t think it should be taught to children.  Some claim that parents who teach their children the Bible are brainwashing them.  Those who make this claim are right; children who are taught the Bible are being brainwashed.

Good things

All of us have asked God for something and not gotten it.  When this happens we generally believe that God hasn’t answered our prayer.  That isn’t necessarily the case.   Jesus said:

Which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
Matthew 7:9-11

Our relationships with God

I used the plural, relationships, in the title because God is a trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and Christians are related to each of these in a different way.  Ephesians 5:22 to 6:9 gives instructions regarding three kinds of human relationship which also serve as illustrations of our relationships with God.

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello

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)
