“What I have said respecting and against religion, I mean strictly to apply to the slaveholding religion of this land, and with no possible reference to Christianity proper; for between the Christianity of this land, and the Christianity of Christ, I recognize the widest possible difference-so wide that to receive the one as good, pure, and holy, is of necessity to be the enemy of the other. I love the pure, peaceable, and impartial Christianity of Christ..”
Frederick Douglass, p.100 ‘Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave’
There can be no lapse in our American constitutional protections, especially in the process of recreation. Our constitutional rights are derived from our natural, Godly rights. Further, the balance of human life cannot tilt towards the normalcy of child-womb slaughter, nor should such an atrocity be raised as a practice of freedom and liberty. God made us. We are made in His image. Our attunement to natural human life progression is rudely impacted, negatively disrupted, seared and scarred—through the two actions of:
Killing the growing human in the womb.
Maintaining a culture that supports normalizing indifference (apathy) to abortion.
Creating a society that does not reverence all of a woman’s life attributes, roles, and functions; that targets the traditional family values, and the Christian precept that the man is the head of the family household upends the very biblical foundation of what the United States of America was built upon. God lays out an equality of the husband-wife relationship placing the Christian father as the true head of the household, yet in service to the Christian mother, who is to be reverenced, protected, and cared for. In not following the gentle precepts of God, we have an imbalance in how we as a culture perceive one another. This imbalance also affects and blinds our educational curriculum, and distorts our politic. Abortion is then a direct attack on the natural, nurturing, loving manner of being that God intended for us.
The real legacy of abortion is that people of black skin color were the initial targets in a bigger endeavor to squash and dilute the role of Christianity itself. The founder of the first human disposal location, Margaret Sanger had extreme views on exterminating the children of the American slaves. These human disposal chambers began to be operate in the neighborhoods of Americans of black skin color. The social, emotional, mental wherewithal of the descendants of slaves was undervalued and challenged as of less equal value to that of Americans of white skin color. How would this affect the thinking and being of new generations of black Americans?
“…the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance..”
Galatians 5:22-23 KJV
Where is the love of the community, where is the gentleness of our government, where is the goodness of our hearts if we are not our brother’s and sister’s keepers? The Christianity of Christ has been replaced with an anti-Christianity. Love, gentleness, and our goodness has to be move outwardly not only in the life of our family and loved ones, but in standing up with the strength of Christ to speak and write, to call for the abolishment of abortion, the end of these human disposal slaughter houses. There can be no appeasement. As in the time of Nehemiah, the wall that must continue to be built is that wall of the sacrifices that God calls for. These sacrifices are love in the face of hate, joy in the midst of heartache, the peace that God blesses us with for walking in His Spirit, the patient long-suffering of enduring the daily kill rate of about 3,000 American children in the womb and the spiritual destruction of our nation. The sacrifices God calls for are maintaining a gentleness of heart as we live in the adversity of an anti-Christian culture that attempts to normalize the killings.
We must increase the diversity and number of support systems that strengthen women to think and feel, and be assured that they can have children and pursue a profession. We must create empowerment opportunities through public school education for Americans of black skin color: community entrepreneurship needs to be a requisite in grade school learning, that it be the financial application of the academics learned in such a way that black Americans earn a living that also strengthens the communities they live in. This is called empathic capitalism and it would be an integral, Christian-like foundational pillar in an America that is about being one’s brother and one’s sister’s keeper.
Our liberties disintegrate in ignorance,
they return in our mindfulness of them
Our freedom is not best defended with the gun and the bullet;
it has its strength in the critical thinking minds of Godly men and women.
God’s Word is a foundational anchor to our hearts and minds,
