Toleration & Apathy is NOT our friend…it KILLS.
I’ve written often of the hatred of human life from those that consider toleration to be more important than what God has created. We are a society of drones rather than children of God. I happened upon a blog that said:
“…we have lost our hatred of death. We have become indifferent to it. We have come to assume it is natural, normal, no big deal. Why don’t we despise it or reject it as hideous anymore? Have we forgotten that we were created by God to live, not to die?”
I would go further with how our society EXPECTS death rather than fighting for it. It is a sad, sad world where we band together for homeless dogs and cats but allow abortion facilities to exterminate humans.
This apathetic ‘live and let die’ attitude feeds on people who have not sold out to God. Our love for each other has shifted to empowering the entitled classes and an uninterested Church. We feed the ego rather than the hungry; we succumb to the wiles of the culture of death while we shout an occasional ‘hallelujah’.
This writer/minister knows that we may not see an end to this extermination until Jesus comes again; we are aware of the scriptures and the expected end. Then why continue, you ask…simple: Every soul has value to God and He expects us to ‘Go into ALL the world and preach the Gospel TO EVERY CREATURE’. We are His workmanship, so are they…born AND unborn.
This ‘culture of death’ that we reside in – shouldn’t live in – seeks the souls of us, not just the physical parts of us. Not one person is expendable for any reason, not one soul is accidental.
How beautiful upon the mountains
Are the feet of him who brings good news,
Who proclaims peace,
Who brings glad tidings of good things,
Who proclaims salvation,
Who says to Zion,
“Your God reigns!” Isaiah 52:7
