Great Editorial by Don Batten in Creation magazine Vol 44, No.4. I have extracted segments for this post but get the magazine you will be blessed by the content.
God creates life; Satan works to destroy life like he did at the beginning with the first humans, Adam and Eve. Jesus said of Satan to the Scribes and Pharisees:
“You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.“ John 8:44
Should we be surprised then that when nations turn their back on God they reap a harvest of death and misery? Whenever Israel abandoned God and followed after false Gods, they ended up with death and bondage. They did so many times (see Judges and Kings) with the same result. Can countries that were based on Christian values and laws expect to avoid the same consequences if they turn their back on God? No! Of course not! Western nations like my own country Australia, America, and most of Europe have abandoned God aided by the grand lie of evolution promoted by the educational establishment that we no longer need God.
We see it in the developing culture of death in these nations:
Unrestricted abortion even up to full term
Euthanasia (voluntary assisted suicide)
Family can be whatever you want. Children do not need a father and mother committed to a lifelong marriage.
Indoctrinating children with gender-bending ideology, creating confusion, disaffection with life, and suicidal urges.
Extremist ‘deep green’ ideology identifies humans as a plague on the earth that need to be culled.
The world needs to know that there is only one answer to this world’s problems and that is Jesus.
“I am the way the truth and the life” John 14:6 and “The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy, I came that they might have life and have it abundantly.” John 10:10
Satan’s grand lie is that God is withholding all of the good things of life from us and makes us miserable with rules and regulations:
Marriage is only for a man and a woman.
You are what God made you a male or female and there is no choice in the matter.
Life is sacred; abortion is murder and euthanasia is suicide.
Christians: our job is to make Jesus’ Good News known, that is the Great Commission.
