A Day of Infamy!

No! Not Pearl Harbour! Something worse than Pearl Harbour! This day of "infamy" has killed 40,000,000 (40 million) people in the U.S.A. alone! 9/11 pales in comparison with THIS day of infamy!

With Pearl Harbour and 9/11, the enemy came into America for all to see! With these two events, the enemy came from outside America.

The day of infamy that I am writing about is different. The enemy is America itself. The enemy is a mother, a father, a judge, a congressman, a senator! Yes, these are the people who have killed those 40 million!

I am thinking of the infamous, evil ruling by the Supreme Court of the U.S.A. in Roe v. Wade, abortion on demand (which is simply a euphemism for murder on demand), on January 22, 2007.

The ruling in Roe v. Wade has always seemed to be impersonal. Well, it IS personal. See for yourself:

This is VERY personal!

Abortion on demand (AoD) has been the law in South Africa since 1 February 1997. That means it has been 10 years since AoD was made legal.

By the time 1 February 2007 comes around, approximately 600,000 babies would have been aborted in South Africa. 600,000 legalised murders!

Will the church in South Africa stand up against this injustice? Or, will it fail like it did before 1 December 2006, when same-sex marriage was declared legal? Or, will it fail as it did in the years under apartheid?

It is my contention that if the true church of Jesus Christ stood up against these evils the way it is supposed to, then none of them would have seen the light of day! We would not have seen apartheid, or abortion, or pornography, or same-sex marriage!

Yet, it seems to me that the years of capitulating under the rule of the apartheid government has dulled the moral indignation of the church so much, that it has become totally indifferent to the evils committed in the name of the law in this country.

"Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people." (
Pro 14:34)

It is time for the church to stand up against these injustices and these evil practices and to become an example of righteous living. When the church ignores these issues, how will righteousness exalt this nation? The sin and evil of this nation will continually remain its own reproach!

The sin of the church is not only the normal sins that beset us all as humans. No! The sin of the church is that it is silent when evil is committed!

One of the most famous sentences ever is by Edmund Burke who said, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

This is the very sin of the church! When issues arise like legalized abortion, pornography and same-sex marriage, the church does nothing! Evil triumphs in this nation because the church does NOTHING!

Politics in this country will never be revitalized while the church does not get involved in the affairs of the nation! When the church does nothing, and says nothing about these issues, the people will assume that these issues, as they stand, are acceptable!

The church has its head in the sand like the proverbial ostrich!

Church... these issues will not get better if you neither say or do anything!

Abortion NO. Please be warned, it contains a horrific video of an actual abortion. HT: John Piper
