RE: LEGAL BABY MURDER—IS SELECTIVE JUDGMENT LOOMING?

blog pic 1.31.19

        Some Christians believe there is judgment upon America. It could be that there is actually selective judgment. If so, it is likely based primarily on a single heinous crime growing more egregious each day.

.

         We exist in a time when the onrushing forces of evil are no longer holding back or exclusively operating from behind a veil of deception. They are challenging the long-held American traditions of morality, truth, and goodness on a greater level. Rebellion is rising exponentially. Deep-seated systemic corruption has invaded all levels of society including the upper levels of management in both the public and private sector. The fox is often guarding the henhouse.

     What used to exist on the seedy side of town in nondescript storefronts and secreted locations run by shady characters has now become mainstream. There are two principle reasons for this: One, sin is progressive. It continues growing and expanding until it meets the proper force of resistance. Two, the entities authorized to counteract such sin and resist its spread have grown weak and often non-existent.

        All manner of sin, hate, rebellion, false narratives, and deceptive agendas are now transmitted into every available receiver from televisions to personal cell phones. The American people in general remain mostly oblivious or have been shanghaied by disinformation and false narratives. If one takes in a movie or network television program it is likely one is being secretly indoctrinated. Anything Christian is taboo. Hate is driving belief. As a result, once a person, event, issue, practice, outlook, or truth is identified in a large swath of the public mind as evil and the target of revulsion, through an ongoing onslaught of negative and distorted prevarications, there is often no remedy to change such thinking. It may take time but entire cultures can be transformed in this manner. People simply accept what they are told without questioning the validity of such programming. Others accept it readily because it supports their prejudices and gives them an accepted outlet for their angry agendas.

         The natural result of such distorted misconceptions in the minds of the deluded is to strike out against those they wrongfully discern as deviants, in order to correct a perceived wrong, without comprehending that the wrong they perceive is actually often a false construct. These misguided and often hopelessly deceived people apparently believe they are standing up for what is right. They insist on supporting sin and evil practices because they do not see such practices as sin and evil but insist they are good and wholesome.

         They align themselves with the forces of darkness while believing themselves to be the children of light.

         They inevitably begin attacking the very ones who are the actual guardians of truth, purveyors of righteousness, and preservatives of society. This ongoing ferocious, brutal, and even violent attack and destruction by degree of truth, righteousness, and society itself results ultimately in an outright civil war of which only one of two sides can be victorious.

         If the lawful institutions, both civil and religious, which previously provided a bulwark against corruption and destruction also grow corrupt what will then act as a preservative? What societal organization can perform the objective of stemming the tide of ruin? Who or what is left to provide an appropriate defense of all that is good?

         “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.” [Matthew 5:13]

TAKING RESPONSIBILITY

         I want to thank those of you who read and supported my previous post, REPLACING RUTH BADER GINSBURG WITH AMY CONEY BARRETT: EPIC BATTLE BREWING? It attracted a lot of traffic. Some of you may have noticed that I posted it before sunrise on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. In direct association with this you may have also noticed that later on the same day a new pro-abortion law in New York was passed that allows for abortions all the way up to delivery. The lawmakers who made this possible gave it a standing ovation and many cheers. There were smiles and laughter all around. A Roman Catholic Democrat governor signed it into law. The newly elected Democrat Senate made it possible. The Catholic Cardinal said it would not be appropriate to reprimand or excommunicate the Catholics involved. Catholic politicians are sometimes the very ones who support such abortion laws and are never made to pay even though Roman Catholicism purports to be against abortion. New York City has already been the worst offender in that more abortions are performed there than anywhere. I wrote the following post on this over six years ago: New York City is the Undisputed Abortion Capital of America.

         The gist of last week’s post was that America has the greatest opportunity in a long time to get closer to eliminating the worst decision in Supreme Court history (and there have been some bad ones), by replacing a pro-abortion female Justice who likely agrees with what New York just did, with a Pro-Life female Justice who will respect the Constitutional rights of the unborn. All the other political battles currently brewing pale in comparison to that one should it occur. But we are heading in that direction. The nation has become increasingly factionalized over the issue.

         Speaking of which, unless one stands up and fights for righteousness one will fall into unrighteousness. The forces of evil are relentless. They must put out the light. They must keep light from shining. Light exposes them. Also, they combat truth with lies. Lies must not be allowed to stick.

        Therefore do not let what is for you a good thing be spoken of as evil. [Romans 14:16]  

         When the enemy tells lies, and the devil is a master at it, truth must strike back. When darkness invades, light must shine forth ever brighter. Much of what is termed Christianity has never understood this. The false forms of Christianity have no spiritual power or authority to act in concert with the Lord and stand up for righteousness. When revivals break out it is sometimes only because someone gets fed up, throws caution to the wind, and speaks out loudly and strongly against that which deludes and brings weakness and for that which stimulates and brings forth spiritual strength and vitality. When many others agree they are inspired to follow suit

         It is simply a fact of life that life itself will cause weariness, a winding down, and low batteries, especially if one is living righteously or working for righteous causes. That is why Christians must remain ever vigilant, maintain their spiritual strength, and continually strive for excellence. The Lord showed us how to do this. When real Christianity is successful within a society the society prospers and there is peace. Evil is relatively weak. It must seek the dark corners and hidden dens of sin. We are presently not living in such a time. Evil has made a great comeback. This could only have happened, however, if large portions of the forces of good have surrendered, capitulated, grown weak and ineffective, or even joined the opposition.

         There comes a time when Christians must understand that business as usual no longer works. And if those the Lord has worked through previously are no longer doing the job they must be rejected and replaced with those who will. This is happening on an ever-increasing scale at present. The mainstream everything has grown corrupt. The Lord is therefore raising up new people everywhere, those who are not corrupt, in all venues of society to counteract and fight against emboldened evil. One of the most terrible consequences of this scenario is when the new righteous are fought against and stigmatized by former friends who reject the need for reform since they control their organizations and thus stand for the corrupt status quo. This happens all the time in churches. Church leaders who grow spiritually weak but personally strong usually have no accountability or check on their behavior. When the Lord attempts to correct them they fight the messenger. What is even worse, all the wimpy Christians in the controlled congregations side with their corrupt leadership and also fight the messenger. They would otherwise lose their social standing and know they are too weak to handle it. They could never stand the adversity.

SELECTIVE JUDGMENT

         It should be obvious that if the hundred and fifty million or so Christians in America were doing their job we would not have come to this point. The good news is that all the rejected who didn’t give up and are doing their jobs, though often subject to ongoing attacks and character assassination, are beginning to have a major impact. That impact is strong enough that the forces of evil and darkness have reached a place of utter desperation and collective insanity. The places and institutions they control with the support of the majority will thus likely incur selective judgment. This is judgment that pertains only to them and their locales. America as a country is not being judged and will not be judged as long as there is a strong contingent of real believers. God does not pour out wrath on His own obedient people doing what He called them to do and He has millions of followers here. Rather, He supports them and blesses them. He loves them. This means America is presently factionalized spiritually as well.

         The Lord revealed to me decades ago that a separation was taking place and would continue. The good guys were leaving the bad guys and vice versa. As this continued, there was a higher concentration of both. This is why you see evil rearing its ugly head in such a pronounced way and standing up for the most vile practices imaginable. It is why they continually subvert the truth and double down on manipulating the public to maintain their status. It is the only way they can survive. They have rejected the checks and correctives on their sinful behavior and false beliefs. There are few left within their groups to tell them they are wrong. There is little semblance of salt among them.

           And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper… [Romans 1:28] [1]

REPLACING RUTH BADER GINSBURG WITH AMY CONEY BARRETT: EPIC BATTLE BREWING?

 

blog pic 1.22.19 rbgblog pic 1.22.19 acb       

         The President’s enemies know they have no chance of removing Donald Trump from office. They will possibly impeach him anyway. This ongoing war is moving toward a nuclear showdown.

.

        Their survival is at stake. They have never faced such a foe. Trump was hit hard from the very beginning back in June of 2015 when he announced he was running. They thought they had him at the start. No one should be allowed to speak that way! But their initial effort failed. What would have easily destroyed another had no effect on him. Where another would have quickly joined the personal apology brigade and weakly succumbed to anti-American PC culture, Trump was unfazed. Then he did it again. There was more howling. Surely he was done in forever. Then he did it yet again. There were more attacks. Nothing. No reversal on his part. Only forward. They kept trying to get him. They could not understand why their efforts were not working. Anyone else would have caved.

         That was three and a half years ago. They managed to destroy others. This was especially the case with Sarah Palin. The livid Left absolutely hated her and turned their full-on vitriol against the Alaska governor in the worse way. She kept her dignity. I wrote about this in my post Selling Free Speech Birthright for a Bowl of Donation Stew. I highly recommend it. While she was certainly unjustifiably slammed for having the audacity to stand up for America and her Christian Pro-Life views, her most difficult battle was with a clear lack of support from powerful political people who decided to let her take all the hits and thus protect themselves. They essentially threw her to the wolves. Despite this, the hardest thing for her was all the compromised sissified church leaders who failed to come to her defense. But what else is new? America has been plagued for decades by compromised sissified church leaders who self neuter as part of their paradigm.

         My regular readers know I have used the following verse on other occasions, yet once again, it is quite timely:

       “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut off the kingdom of heaven from people; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.” [Matthew 23:13]

         These are the people who refuse to make the hard calls and put themselves in jeopardy. They would rather protect themselves and not be spiritual targets. They have no guts for spiritual battle. They take the easy way out. They choose a faithless no backbone religious form of Christianity that represents no threat to the enemy. The devil doesn’t bother with them. They are rarely or never under attack.

          The Lord Jesus, however, was always under attack. It proves He was bringing something real and substantial that would shine a light on evil and corruption. Unrepentant sinners hate being thus exposed. They want to sin within society, have their sin accepted, and have their sin seen as not sin by society. This is especially true for “righteous sinners” within outwardly religious constructs whose rebellion against God is not perceived by their followers. They don’t appreciate being outed. The guilty don’t like being exposed. They absolutely hate coming under conviction. Corruption prefers the dark.

        This outing of the unperceived religious deception phenomena followed the Lord everywhere He went. He didn’t necessarily intentionally shine His light on such people but His light shined always nonetheless. If one would be around Him they would get shined on whether they wanted to be shined on or not. All seemed to be quiet and peaceful until He spoke some otherwise obvious, time-honored, and righteous word of truth and the next thing you know some dingbat went nuts. They raised a giant ruckus. They agitated on end. All manner of unholy cock-a-doodle-do came raging forth. Some of those dingbats were possessed. Some of the current dingbats must also be possessed. Maybe this is why exorcists, like so many other professionals, are currently seeing their employment opportunities abounding.

         “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Edmund Burke

         This is what happens when evil people gain power. Because some of these people are elected, it means the people who elect them are likely seriously deceived. Machine politics exists to fool and trick and get votes anyway possible. There are no rules. The Founding Fathers of this country expressed disdain at the emerging power of political parties. The evil inherent in this process reared its ugly head long ago and it only got worse over time. The big money boys reached a point in which it was fairly simple to buy politicians. The true story is a shocker. Much of American history is the result of big money colluding with government to have their way by buying elected representatives. The true art of successful under-the-table politics, emerging from proverbial smoke-filled rooms, is knowing how to practice it while simultaneously appearing innocent, righteous, and above board. This gives us another look into how the Pharisees operated and why the Lord was often on their case.

BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU

         Today’s tech giants are not so different from yesterday’s Robber barons. They control much more than Americans realize. Their surface agenda is the same old unrighteous grab for power and wealth. Their hidden agenda, however, goes beyond the scope of mere business. They generate cultural mores. They tell people what to believe and what to reject. They have perfected what it takes to succeed on their terms. They hide slyly behind the media curtain and most people are unaware of their presence. This is certainly a form of willing mass obtuseness. As part of their deceptive practice, they control powerful politicians. The process is fairly easy. They tell them what they must do and then bless them financially. Simple. They start with like minded people. They build them up, give them a platform, and insure their success. As long as they do their bidding the politicians thereof stay in power. This explains the existence of so many ridiculous, empty-headed candidates throughout history. It also explains why certain politicians insist on things damaging to the country.

        Wise people see the strings. This archetypal exemplar is currently bursting forth at present as the Democrat clown car of presidential aspirants fills to overflowing as did the Republican clown car four years ago. Based on past examples and present policy positions, some of these people apparently do not care about eternity, or heaven, or an afterlife, or their soul, or what God might think of their behavior. Also, if they happen to gain success and allow themselves to be used by the political establishment, they often can’t get back out. Egress would portend ruination. In this they sell their souls.

         Upper level politicians have very big supporters to answer to. Most would not be in power otherwise. They must obey at all costs. They reach a point in which they no longer care about the country they claim to serve, if they ever did. What you are seeing at present is a fight for the very soul of America. Three years ago the bad guys pretty much had it all sewed up. But then much of America said, as did so many young people half a century ago who refused to likely destroy their lives by entering the quagmire of Viet Nam, “Hell no, we won’t go.” They were done with the slow destruction of the country and decided to fight back. It took awhile, but enough Americans finally became aware and awakened, and claimed ownership. They decided their children and grandchildren were worth it.

         Many Christians insist that God has chosen Donald Trump for such a time as this. I do not necessarily doubt this. Self righteous holier-than-thou Christians do not like the concept, however, and they align themselves with the anti-Christian virtue signaling social justice warriors of the left who deem themselves moral stalwarts. They see the sins of Trump yet fail to see their own sins. Because they are anti-Christian they never heard the many teachings of the Lord that describe them perfectly, such as:

         “Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.” [Matthew 7:3-5]   

         People who are not Biblically illiterate know the Bible is full of stories about sinful people being chosen by God for His purposes. Let’s not forget what the apostle Paul was before his conversion. Let’s not forget what all real Christians were before their born again experience. Spiritual redemption demands humility. It demands that we subject ourselves to the light all the way to the DNA level.

         Of course, sinners must stop sinning and get on the side of righteousness before the Lord will actually use them in real ministry. But the pool of candidates He chooses from is initially a pool of sinners. Where else is He going to get anyone? The self righteous who refuse to acknowledge their sin are the worst. He does not choose them. Being chosen as a national leader in the ancient world was a lesser calling. The bar was not as high. But the calling was necessary. The Lord always responds to the prayers of His people and sometimes He must choose from without. And it is often the case that those He chooses from without later gain entrance. Being used of the Lord indicates agreement with the Lord.

         And here we are. Both sides are digging in. The trenches are dug, the barbwire is all strung out, and the machine gun nests are ready. Cue the fog machines. This is war.

SUPREME MAKEOVER

         Although the mainstream media refuses to report the truth, there are clear indications that the career of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is essentially over. She will have to be replaced. This is the greatest horror story yet for the Democrats. What are they going to do when innocent unborn babies gain their Constitutional rights? When Justice Anthony Kennedy decided to retire last summer the rebuilding of the Supreme Court began. President Trump already had a list of 25 candidates made up before the presidential election that he would choose from. Three names rose to the top: Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, and Amy Coney Barrett. Of these three, Kavanaugh and Kethledge were the final candidates. Of those two I favored Raymond Kethledge.

       Though I had no way of knowing, it appeared outwardly that Kavanaugh’s long history within the Beltway projected him as a Washington insider possibly influenced by concessionary forces. Kethledge, on the other hand, was an outsider and strong Constitutionalist with some Libertarian principles favoring individual rights. Though the Democrats would reject whoever Trump nominated regardless and vote as a bloc in opposition, I thought Kavanaugh’s subsequent nomination was reasonably safe and would get through relatively easily in comparison to other candidates. That is in fact how it should have been and would have been under normal circumstances. But alas, these are not normal times, and thank goodness for that.

        I said at the time last July that I thought President Trump might be saving Amy Coney Barrett to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Who could write a more compelling story? It’s poetic. You could never find two greater opposites. Ginsburg, 85, is a feminist non-religiously observant Jew, a loved and long-admired icon of the liberal left with an extensive history of judicial achievement. Barrett, born in 1972, is a Roman Catholic with conservative traditional values. She not only has a Catholic pedigree but is associated with a Charismatic group that actually believes in and practices the gifts of the Spirit, divine healing, and, Aghast! Speaking in tongues! Oh No! Run for hills!

         This political war ramping up before us between two polar opposites, compared to politics as usual, denotes the rushing clash and flashing swords of old school hand-to-hand combat. Politically speaking, in getting to the heart of the matter, it parallels Lincoln, early in The War of Northern Aggression, getting rid of status quo slow walking General George McClellan, a great organizer but lousy warrior who preferred building an army and squatting around in large camps during wartime, and eventually choosing Ulysses S. Grant who favored hard charging, risk, and shooting up the countryside. This is Omar Bradley meets George S. Patton. It is timid Dick Nixon meeting fearless JFK. It can also be construed as Luke Skywalker finally facing off against Darth Vader and David taking on Goliath rolled into one. It is War of the Worlds. It’s like pouring gasoline on napalm or driving a giant dump truck at high speed with no brakes through a nitroglycerin plant.

         Could Amy Coney Barrett stand up to the barrage of hate unleashed against her? Could she handle it the classy way Sarah Palin did? Would her friends and family even let her go through it? Would President Trump decide he would not subject her to such outright vengeance? Because she is Charismatic, would the Roman Catholic Church support her? Would other Christians reject her?

         A great many Catholics are Democrats. Catholics assisted in putting the former pro-abortion president into office. Maybe they would like to redeem themselves.

         Regarding Catholics on the Supreme Court fighting to end abortion, however, that is a total non-starter. We have had as many as six Catholics on the Court at one time not long ago, along with a Catholic Speaker of the House (Pelosi) and Catholic Vice President (Biden), and they never did squat. Kavanaugh is also a Catholic. The Supreme Court is largely comprised of Catholics and Jews. Would replacing a Jew with yet another Catholic make any difference? Would that be un-PC?

         It could be that the Constitutional intent of the Supreme Court has been superseded by a check on the real check against power and abuse which has disallowed the proper corrective. Those who people the Court, due to narrow elitist qualification demands, cannot possibly reflect a true cross section of the country. For example, no Spirit-filled person has ever gotten within a million miles of membership. But Amy Coney Barrett is more than qualified according to the traditional, high brow legal standards. Since Donald Trump has already become the greatest Pro-Life President in history and continually vows to Make America Great Again, wouldn’t having Amy Coney Barrett on the Court be yet another sign of the Great Awakening? No other president would ever have the courage to do it.

         The Notorious RBG will not go easily though and will continue to be supported for as long as possible. She has served her country on the Supreme Court for a quarter century and deserves the honor and dignity that demands. She has also suffered several major health issues and according to some reports, is currently fighting for life. I hope she recovers. For the prayer warriors out there, I ask that much prayer goes forth on her behalf. We also need to pray for Amy Coney Barrett in this regard if she ends up being chosen as a Supreme Court nominee at some point.

         Remember, the Christian spiritual battle is never against people. It is, however, against evil spiritual forces and anti-Gospel belief systems and ideologies that oppose the Lord Jesus and are inherently detrimental for people, especially if they adversely affect their lives and eternal destinations. We are commanded to love.

         For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. [Ephesians 6:12][1]

The Times They Are A-Changin’: National Abortion and the Great Awakening

          Happy July 4th.

         On the eve of America’s 239th birthday from which we declared our independence from a tyrannical king, a new tyranny has come forth.

         And it is no one’s fault but We the People.

         Christians are upset about last week’s Alternative Marriage Supreme Court ruling but I would like to strongly remind everyone that the recent ruling, though a definite sign of decline, is merely a sign of further decline, a great decline that began many decades ago.

         On January 22, 1973 the Supreme Court ruled with an iron hand in one sweeping decision that baby killing in the womb had become perfectly legal and the law of the land, overturning every state law against abortion. The vast majority of Americans were against this ruling but the will of the people did not matter. And innocent babies otherwise safely in the womb would now be targeted by heinous practitioners of depraved butchery.

         These innocent babes had no voice. They lost all their rights. Barring later repentance that I can find no record of, the seven deceased justices that formed the majority opinion are now suffering a far worse punishment than the one they perpetrated upon the roughly fifty-five million innocent babies to date.

         These men were heartless and cold. We have now learned, several years ago in fact, that these babies feel excruciating pain when being ripped apart and sucked out, unlike the mere glob of tissue they are purported to be, which means they suffer the double whammy of physical pain and a complete disregard, dismissal, and indifference toward their status as both human beings and free Americans.

         The Roe v. Wade decision was the worst decision ever rendered by the Supreme Court, without question, and makes the one rendered last week look like nothing. The recognition and acceptance in America over the last 42 years of legalized baby killing should put the recent ruling in proper perspective. We should understand that the Supreme Court had already rebelled against God many decades ago and that such current decisions should not surprise us.

         Regarding the weird White House color show of last week, perhaps the White House of early 1973 should have been bathed in blood red.

         But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. [2Timothy 3:13] [1]

         Regarding America, just who are these evil men and imposters prophesied about by the apostle Paul so long ago?

         Well, considering Supreme Court justices, they are in office by the will of the people. They are nominated by Presidents and must be confirmed by the Senate, which means both branches must work together to make the appointments final.

         Presidents are elected by the people of the nation. Senators are elected by the people of their respective states. Therefore, such Presidents and Senators are elected by We the People, which means the ultimate responsibility is with the American voters who elected such people into office.

THE ALTERNATIVE MARRIAGE DECISION

         If American Christians want to blame the Supreme Court justices for last week’s Alternative Marriage decision, they are blaming the wrong people. Those justices were placed in power by the America electorate. Here is how they got there:

VOTING AGAINST:

Justice Antonin Scalia:

Assumed Office on September 26, 1986. Nominated by Ronald Reagan (Republican).

Justice Clarence Thomas:

Assumed Office on October 23, 1991. Nominated by George H. W. Bush (Republican).

Chief Justice John G. Roberts:

Assumed Office on September 29, 2005. Nominated by George W. Bush (Republican).

Justice Samuel A. Alito:

Assumed Office on January 31, 2006. Nominated by George W. Bush (Republican).

VOTING FOR:

Justice Anthony Kennedy:

Assumed Office on February 18, 1988. Nominated by Ronald Reagan (Republican).

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

Assumed Office on August 10, 1993. Nominated by Bill Clinton (Democrat).

Justice Stephen G. Breyer:

Assumed Office on August 3, 1994. Nominated by Bill Clinton (Democrat).

Justice Sonia Sotomayor:

Assumed Office on August 8, 2009. Nominated by Barack Obama (Democrat).

Justice Elena Kagan:

Assumed Office on August 7, 2010. Nominated by Barack Obama (Democrat).

         The Alternative Marriage Decision was a 5-4 vote. Voting For were Kennedy, who wrote the majority opinion, Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan. Each one of these justices was nominated by Presidents who were elected not only once, but twice. The American people cannot be more clear about their choice for President when they elect that President twice. Each one of these justices was also confirmed by elected members of the United States Senate.

         Therefore, regarding last week’s decision, it can be argued that those who voted for Ronald Reagan (Kennedy), and especially those who voted for Bill Clinton (Ginsburg, Breyer) and Barack Obama (Sotomayor, Kagan) are the responsible parties. It must be noted though, that justices often go left after attaining office, which is certainly the case with Kennedy.

THE ROE V. WADE DECISION

         Regarding the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion, if American Christians want to blame the Supreme Court justices of that time for that decision, they are, again, blaming the wrong people. Those justices were also placed in power by the America electorate—We the People. Here is how they got there:

VOTING AGAINST:

Justice Byron White:

Served 4/16/1962 – 6/28/1993. Nominated by John Kennedy (Democrat).

Justice William Rehnquist:

Served 1/7/1972 – 9/3/2005. Nominated by Richard Nixon (Republican).

VOTING FOR:

Justice William O. Douglas:

Served 4/15/1939 – 11/12/1975. Nominated by Franklin Roosevelt (Democrat).

Justice William J. Brennan, Jr:

Served 10/15/1956 – 7/20/1990. Nominated by Dwight Eisenhower (Republican).

Justice Potter Stewart:

Served 10/14/1958 – 7/3/1981. Nominated by Dwight Eisenhower (Republican).

Justice Thurgood Marshall:

Served 10/2/1967 – 10/1/1991. Nominated by Lyndon Johnson (Democrat).

Chief Justice Warren E. Burger:

Served 6/23/1969 – 9/26/1986. Nominated by Richard Nixon (Republican).

Justice Harry Blackmun:

Served 6/9/1970 – 8/3/1994. Nominated by Richard Nixon (Republican).

Justice Lewis F. Powell, Jr:

Served 1/7/1972 – 6/26/1987. Nominated by Richard Nixon (Republican).

         Roe v. Wade was a 7-2 vote. Voting For were Blackmun, who wrote the majority opinion, Douglas, Brennan, Stewart, Marshall, Burger, and Powell. Each one of these justices was nominated by Presidents who were elected not only once, but twice, with the exception of Johnson who did, however, serve more than one term, and Roosevelt, who was elected four times. The American people cannot be more clear about their choice for President when they elect that President twice or more. Each one of these justices was also confirmed by elected members of the United States Senate.

         And for those who think voting Republican will work to eventually end legal abortion, FIVE of the Supreme Court justices who voted for Roe v. Wade were nominated by two Republican Presidents.

         Therefore, regarding the Roe v. Wade decision, it can be argued that those who voted for Franklin Roosevelt (Douglas), Lyndon Johnson (Marshall), and especially Dwight Eisenhower (Brennan, Stewart) and Richard Nixon (Burger, Blackmun, and Powell), are the responsible parties.

SLOW SUICIDE

         The slow suicide of America will never be stopped without the intervention of the Lord Jesus. Every nation and empire in history has gone the way America is going now. No nation lasts forever. Not even ancient Israel. If God could not stop the slow suicide of His own people, how can He stop the destruction of any nation that does not want His help?

         Enough Americans know better, however, and millions seek Him. But we should not be seeking Him to save America. We should be seeking Him to save souls, including our own.

         Believers are coming together and getting wise, and are beginning to understand the problem. American churchianity as usual has brought us to this place of powerlessness and increasing persecution. We created and bought into the wrong “Christian” paradigm many decades ago, believed the false prophets in charge, and supported people who proved to be our enemies.

         The Great Awakening is changing all that.

         Please listen to the following song. Pay careful attention to the lyrics which follow. The song applies perfectly to these days, gives the right perspective, and will give you hope.

         Regardless of American culture falling all around us and the advent of a new evil in the form of false freedom, those who know and love the Lord Jesus are truly free and will always be.

         The lovers of this present darkness will not be so fortunate.

The iron hand it ain’t no match for the Iron Rod

The strongest wall will crumble and fall to a Mighty God

 

For all those who have eyes and all those who have ears

It is only He who can reduce me to tears

Don’t you cry and don’t you die and don’t you burn

Like a thief in the night, He’ll replace wrong with right

 

When He returns

 

Truth is an arrow and the gate is narrow that it passes through

He unleashed His power at an unknown hour that no one knew

 

How long can I listen to the lies of prejudice?

How long can I stay drunk on fear out in the wilderness?

Can I cast it aside, all this loyalty and this pride?

Will I ever learn that there’ll be no peace, that the war won’t cease

 

Until He returns

 

Surrender your crown on this blood-stained ground, take off your mask

He sees your deeds, He knows your needs even before you ask

 

How long can you falsify and deny what is real?

How long can you hate yourself for the weakness you conceal?

Of every earthly plan that be known to man, He is unconcerned

He’s got plans of His own to set up His throne

 

When He returns [2]
