Evolutionary Concepts Part 2

I’ve actually heard the phrase “human animal” on T.V. This is perhaps the most appalling effect that macro-evolution has had on our culture. Even though science clearly contradicts macro-evolution, most people stubbornly argue that we did indeed evolve from apes. Why is there such an appeal in this belief? Well, I have two theories, either macro-evolutionist are jealous of the ape’s looks, or they want the freedom from morality that animals have. Our culture is so full of murder, theft, and sexual immorality that we have actually ceased to be ashamed of our disgusting sin, and we now look for a way to excuse it as “ok” or “normal”. And evolution has offered a perfect excuse.

The sanctity of Human Life
By far the most drastic way that the “human animal” idea has affected our culture is our view of the value of human life. As a Christian, I believe that we were created in the image of God, which makes us different from the animals. Genesis 9:6 says, “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man.” Clearly, God values every human life. But in our culture, that is not the case. Our hospitals now kill over 132,000 innocent human lives every year. Abortion is the American holocaust. And what’s worse, the doctors who perform abortions often will tell their patients that all they are doing is removing a “lump of tissue”. Nothing could be further from the truth.

What are we really Killing?
Abortion stops beating hearts, in fact if most of the babies that have been aborted were born premature, they would still need special life support systems, but they would be under the full protection of the law. Aborted babies can also feel pain, they have fingerprints, and the ability to grow up to have a normal life even if born premature. So it’s really not a question of whether or not it’s a person. It’s just a matter of if the baby is born, or unborn. What’s the difference? Further demonstrating the inconsistency of our laws, did you know that if someone kills a pregnant woman, they are charged with DOUBLE homicide! But the doctors would say that this same baby was just a lump of tissue.

Abortion is murder
I had no idea how bad it has gotten until I saw a pro-life bumper sticker that said something like, “3000 Americans have been killed by terrorists since 1990, 4000 Americans have been killed by abortionists since yesterday.” If we ever get through this American holocaust, historians will no doubt wonder how we could have been so barbaric! This country needs to make a fast U-turn, and start valuing every human life as a gift from God.

Elijah, you are doing such a great job with this blog. I am so pleased with the way both your thinking and writing and your faith are maturing.

I was talking to some of my friends here in the Philippines about abortion, and they simply couldn't believe that it is legal and widely accepted in the US! It is illegal to have an abortion in the Philippines, and any doctor or midwife who is caught administering "back alley" (illegal) abortions is thrown in jail. I believe the mother is also penalized as well.
