Why the "Culture of Death" Doesn't Want the Truth Told About Abortion
We are seeing a similar attempt at redefinition in the euthenasia movement as the truth about that comes out. Even more than in the past,Planned Parenthood is now using misleading language to avoid answering questions about what the do truthfully.
This is why they try to stop people with signs showing the truth from setting up the diplays. When they are set up, you will see people attack them & do what they can to destroy them. Or they will try & get the people (especially student groups) arrested for trespassing. We see a similar attack on Pro-lifers who peacefully & prayerfully stand before abortion clinics. The whole purpose is to silence those speaking the truth.
This is also why they attack groups like Live Action & others who go undercover. The abortion insutry tries to paint what they are doing as hoaxes. Or they say, even when shown otherwise, that the tapes were edited to mislead. These groups are attacked because they are bringing to light the truth about the abortion industry.
Next up we have the attack on the Catholic Church through the HHS mandate. Yes, it is an attack on religious freedom. & that is why you see evangelical Christians & others in the Pro-life camp who may not totally agree with the Catholic Church's teachings on birth control for example. They know that at the root of these attacks is an attempt to push the Catholic Church out of the public square. In fact to silence anyone who is a believer & proclaims the truth.
The "culture of death" knows that the Catholic Church's magesterial teachings proclaim the light of truth on life issues. The Catholic Church has been the one Church to consistantly tell the truth about abortion, sex outside of marriage, gay marriage & the rest of theier deadly agenda. In shining that light, it brings the evil of the "culture of death" out of the darkness where it prefers to remain.
Besides the attempts at silencing from without, we are seeing a not so clandestine 5th column working from within to undermine the Catholic Church by saying that it is OK to ignore what the Church is teaching. Of course I am refering to such people as Nancy Pelosi, Kathleen Sibelius, Tom Harkin, Tom Vilsak & VP Biden among many others. This is an attempt to keep people from looking at the truth as they should by creating confusion.
& while evangelicals & other protestants who are Pro-life don't have the fullness of the truth, to the extent that they do, they are letting the light of truth shine as well. & that is why they are coming under attack as well to silence them.
So what are we to do.
As I have said so often before, 1st & formost this is a spiritual battle. The "culture of death" is demonic in origin. & it is spiritual weapons that will defeat it. So that means, pray, pray pray.
We also must repent for the sins of our nation.
But prayer does not absolve us from taking action where we can. Yes, some people are homebound, or in a hospital & unable to be active as most people define it. But they do have an active role. God is calling them to be prayer warriors, interceding for all of us out on the fronty lines. They can also offer up their suffering as a form of intercession as well.
For the rest of us, there are plenty of things we can do.
If there is a Planned Parentood clinic or other abortion provider nearby, volunteer to prayerfully protest in front of it. Give what financial support you can to Pro-life organizations, local & national. Also do the same for crisis pregnancy centers. Some of them operate on volunteer help as well. Write letters to the paper telling the truth about the abortion industry. Be sure your facts are straight. Don't rely on emotion. There are some groups out there who put up Pro-life billboards. They often rely on financial help as well. Then there are blogs & your Facebook page as well
No one of us can do everything. Nor is God asking us to. But each of us does have a role to play in this battle. We must start end & undergird everything we do with prayer. & yes, I do that with my Pro-life posts as well. I regularly seek God's guidance. In the end we also need to remember that it isn't us who will bring about the victory. It is God who will. Our responisbility is to do what he calls us to. & in doing show let our light shine before men. Doing so, we let the light of truth shine in the darkness to enable those who are mislead to the truth. We cannot worry about acceptance or rejection. That is not our concern. In these times it is more urgent than ever to let our light shine. We must remember, we are not alone. We must support one another. & we must rely on God for our strength. as well as to guide us. & go forth with the assurance, not that God is on our side, but that we are on God's side. & if weare, we are on the winning side.
