The Darwinian worldview leads to euthanasia, abortion, sterilization, and genocide. If we assume the truth of Darwinian evolution, that is the simple and logical conclusion; as Hitler's propoganda stated, no good animal breeder allows the unhealthy or inferior animals in his care to breed. If we, too, are just animals, somewhere between apes and supermen, then why would we not want to assist the progress of the species by cutting out those who obviously will not be helping us toward the latter?
The Christian worldview stands in stark opposition. The Author of life claims responsibility for making the deaf and the blind. (Ex. 4:11)
In the Christian worldview, there is no such thing as a "defective" person. The child with Down Syndrome, the cross-eyed man, the woman lame from birth, the deformed, the mute, these people were not rejects from the celestial assembly line.
Certainly, there are natural factors that God uses to bring such things about- some of which we are responsible for.
But the basic Christian assumption is that God made you how He wants you. 
We are responsible for what we do with what He gives us; we are responsible to invest our talents wisely. But He is the One Who gives the talents as He sees fit. (Matt. 25:14-30) 
Sterilizing the "inferior", as America did in the early 1900s, or committing mass acts of genocide, as the Nazi regime did, or murdering the unwanted in the womb like we are doing by the thousands and ten thousands today in this country- this all makes sense if we are the judge of what is "viable," what is "superior," if we can control the factors and predict the results- and if we are not accountable to God for what we do with His souls.
But if God makes people individually by His hand, then it doesn't matter what the child's pedigree is. If God wants him blind, He'll make him blind. If He doesn't want him blind, then the child will not be blind. If the child is blind, there is no blame or shame. That was God's perfect will. That is just as much a person, a life, a soul, in the words of Lewis a "self." And if that child is chosen by God, then he is just as much a member of the Church-Bride of Jesus Christ. God wove that human tapestry and signed it with His image and bought it with His blood. There is no higher pedigree than that which is held by the child of God.
Blind or not, "normal" or not, we do not have the right to determine that life inferior. We can only judge things which are under us. Human creations, human actions. Life is a creation of God. He has the right to tell us when- and why- we may take it from another. 
We did not give it. It is not ours to take unless the One Who gave it tells us to.

Time to be Shocked

We are the nation where little babies, alive and wriggling, have their faces scissored in half so their brains can be harvested.

I generally don't like the shock-value technique.  But it's far past time for us to be shocked.

Examinations of the underbelly of the Planned Parenthood​ monster keep showing more and more festering infection.  The heartless perversion- this just makes me shudder.  We need to see this.  We need to shudder.  We need to show it to others so they can shudder too.

And we need to *repent.*  The only way hell can prevail and belch forth such wickedness is if the Church of Jesus Christ has not rolled over the gates of hell with the Word of God.

God will not be mocked, and a nation that does this and does not repent is a nation that will be broken- soon and hard.

Wandering Hearts

Thinking about the dangers that the stereotypical workplace model present to marriage; a married man with a secretary who isn't his wife happily helping and serving him all day; a married woman helping a man who isn't her husband, and being appreciated, and seeing his big vision and hard work; this is a chemistry that God designed to create a powerful reaction, but unfortunately it is not often enjoyed in its proper context- marriage- today.

I'm very happy and blessed that my secretary is Mrs. Bethany Hudelson, and I can be unashamedly in love with her.

But also thinking... the proper Christian response to this and other areas of temptation is not "I love my wife so much that I would never fall prey to such a thing," but rather "I love my wife too much to trust myself with temptation, because I know I am a sinner."

(Not saying that such a situation is inherently sinful, by the way, but rather that it is something to be careful of.)

It is not a sign of loving Jesus more that we feel no need to flee temptation- it is a sign of thinking too highly of ourselves. The stronger we are as believers, the weaker we know ourselves to be.

It is only the grace of God that stands between us- between me- and every depravity of the flesh. I pray that God would be merciful to me, would hold me to Himself, would not leave me to discover just how weak I am without His grace and His Spirit.

"Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall." - 1 Cor. 10:12

All or Nothing

Fiscal conservatism and social liberalism are irreconcilable positions.  It may sound romantic to be able to advocate "liberty" in areas like "sexual preference" and "choice" while still promoting small-government fiscal policies, but the social issues walk hand-in-hand with the fiscal ones.  The moment we forsake God's Word as the standard for ALL areas of life, we have forsaken God's Word as the standard for ANY area of life, and we are left to the chilling arbitrariness of humanism.

Kings of the Earth

Like on the side of a fighter jet, #SCOTUS marks another kill- but with a knife into the Constitution and a slap towards the face of God.

He Who sits in the heavens laughs.  Their slaps will only result in broken fingers.

God will not be mocked; our nation will continue her spiral into insignificance and final collapse until the people of God are faithful to stand on His Word.

That is the true travesty.  The only way that the kingdom of darkness can gain so much ground is if the Kingdom of Light forsakes it.  So long as we continue to apologize for the Word of God, we can expect these travesties of justice to continue.

Mr. and Mx.

Watched a little segment on Fox tonight about how Amazon has removed the "Boys" and "Girls" filters from their toy searches and the Oxford English Dictionary is introducing Mx. as a gender-neutral alternative to Mr. or Ms.

He Who sits in the heavens laughs.  It really is quite funny to watch the gods of the politically-correct marketplace scramble to sandblast every remnant of reality off of the reality that surrounds them.  Predictably, like sweeping a dirt floor, it's not working very well.

Then one of the ladies on the segment talks about how the most we can say about whether there are real biological differences between boys and girls is that we don't really know.

So... let's run a few quick polls.

What does a doctor say when a baby is born?  "It's a _____"

Is the doctor right or wrong?  And if the terms "male" and "female" no longer refer to objective biological differences, then... what's the doctor supposed to say?  Do we need new terms that somehow can acknowledge an anatomical reality without acknowledging a spiritual one?  Or are we also questioning the anatomical reality?

Next poll:

Put a group of girls in an empty room.  Put a group of boys in an empty room.  Give each group maybe some sticks and rocks.  What are they going to do?

Next poll:

Ask your average girl what her ideal body would look like, and note the adjectives she uses.  Ask your average guy the same question.

Next poll (this one is fun):

What would be your initial reaction to a scene from, say, an Avenger movie, in which Black Widow is cradling Thor in her arms, carrying him away from a place of danger?

Now, reverse the roles.  Does your reaction change at all?

If so, are you a sexist?  Or are you just a normal person who has been wired by God to think in terms of reality?

Something to think about.  Oh, and I loved the other lady's comment at the end... "This just makes it harder to shop."

And thus is the world of political correctness.

Homosexuals Have Rights Too

OK... I'll admit it... under Biblical law, homosexuals should have the same rights as everyone else.

It's Biblical.

I have the right to marry a woman.  The homosexual guy does too.

I don't have the right to marry a man.  Neither does a homosexual guy.

See?  Same rights.

The homosexual community is clamoring for equal rights in name, but special rights in reality.

If homosexuality is a sin and legally-outlawable crime (which it is, Biblically speaking- Leviticus 18:22) then no one has the right to practice it.  This goes for every sin and crime- murderers, thieves, adulterers, they all have the same rights as anyone else.  To seek a special right to steal, kill, or commit adultery- if we're going to do that, let's at least call it what it is: special permission for the violation of God's Word- not equal rights.

This is not an issue of denying the right of marriage to some and granting it to others; it's a matter of defining marriage Biblically- one man, one woman- acknowledging that right, and acknowledging the wrongness of anything else.
