NATIONS, ONE GODLESS ASCENDING, ONE CLUELESS DECLINING

The Next Magazine, March 29, 2007, a weekly publication from Hong Kong, reported that infant fetuses have become the newest supplements for health and beauty.
Ms Liu, who hails from Liaoning province on mainland China, works as a servant on the island of Taiwan. She inadvertently revealed to one of the guests at a banquet, hosted by her boss a Chinese businessman, that she is returning to her home on the mainland because of reasons of health and to receive the human parts supplement which she believes will help cure her ailment.
She said that in Guangdong, the town where her home is located, gourmet body parts are in high demand and can even be purchased through hospitals. Her revelation horrified the guests. Soon, a reporter from The Next magazine made arrangement to accompany Ms Liu back to her home town. She told the reporter that even though people can afford the human parts there are waiting lists and those with the right connections get the �highest quality� human parts, which translates to the more mature fetuses. A male fetus is considered the �prime� human part.
At the magazine�s request, Ms Liu personally escorted the reporter to a location where a fetus was being prepared. A woman was chopping up a male fetus and making soup from the placenta. During the process, the women even tried to comfort the reporter by saying to him, �Don�t be afraid, this is just the flesh of a higher animal.� The rest of the boy�s remains were cremated in the mountains in accordance with the customs of the region.
On March 22, 2003, police in Bingyan, Guangzi Province seized 28 female babies smuggled in a truck from Yulin, Guangxi Province going to Houzhou in Anhui Province. The oldest baby was three months old. The babies were packed three or four to a bag and many were near death. None were claimed by parents as a result of the rescue.
According to the magazine report, on October 9, 2004, a person rifling through the garbage on the outskirts of Jiuquan city in the Suzhou region, found dismembered babies in a dumpster. There were two heads, two torsos, four arms and six legs. According to the investigation, these corpuses were no more than a week old and they had been dismembered after cooking.
China has forced abortions. Only one child per married couple is allowed. It also has laws prohibiting the eating of human fetuses, but rarely enforced because of the numbers involved. The one child policy is strictly adhered to, thereby creating millions of abortions and opportunities for these atrocities.
The Supreme Court of the United States in 1973 decided to allow the killing of a fetus as late as during the ninth month. Later, the U.S. Congress decided that partial birth abortion is permissible. The procedure requires sucking the brain matter from the living child and squeezing the pliable skull so that it can easily be extracted from the birth canal. The ostensible reason for this procedure by a physician is to save the mother�s life. It is extremely rare that this procedure is used to save the life of a mother according to numerous statistical reports accumulated from obstetricians and hospitals.
There are enough abortion clinics in the United States to destroy annually the fetuses of over 1.5 million unborn babies. Not to be concerned, says the monsters of death �Don�t be afraid this is just the flesh of a higher animal.�
Jeffrey Dahmer, the homosexual murderer who ate his victims flesh would not be considered a monster in China�s Liaoning province. Neither are those physician abortionists who see no wrong in using forceps to extract a fetus from the womb or dissolve it using acid.
The law states that if the abortionist kills the baby after it is born live, it is considered murder. However, if the fetus is only partially extracted, and killed then it is legal and not murder. What kind of a convoluted system of laws do we tolerate in this country that allows such a fiendish act to be committed? What kind of human beings are they who sit in judgment on the Supreme Court or vote on bills in the U.S. Congress and in state legislatures who have so little respect for life as to uphold the 1973 decision on Roe vs. Wade � the taking of the life of a developing human being, a miracle from God with an eternal soul ?
The fact is that the majority of Americans believe abortion is wrong, yet their representatives mirror the public�s opinion on how they cast their votes. The real fact is that most Americans, if asked if they would save the child and allow the mother to die or to kill the child to save the mother - their answer would be kill the child. One should go back to Solomon�s decision to determine who is the real mother, the one who loves the child more? Was it to be hacked in two and divided to settle the case between the false and true mother? What is the life of the developing baby worth to a pregnant woman who chooses for one reason or another to abort her unborn child? What is the life of a developing, unborn baby worth to the father? Is the decision of death only left to the mother and not the father? Who but God almighty has the right to end a life?
There are many within our society who believes it is perfectly reasonable to use a human embryo for stem cell research in order to cure diseases and save lives. This is certainly a noble endeavor, except for the ethics of destroying what could be a growing fetus once placed in the womb. The embryo has all the ingredients for development after it receives the proper environment to develop. The human embryo is not a chicken egg. The logic of using embryos may appear sound, but the ethical and moral question is committing an ethical wrong to obtain a substantive good? What then will be the next step? Would it be that in the future science finds a way for implanting embryos in a substitute womb and the fetuses used for body parts?
The morals of our nation have been polluted with every form of diabolical means, but most of all the entertainment media has clouded the difference of right and wrong. Violence, murder and promotion of every form of sexual act has debased values and encouraged acts that defile nature. Our liberal culture has spread around the globe with negative consequences where once the United States was admired and envied, now it is despised because it is perceived as ancient Rome - dictating terms, using force without diplomacy and its congress found to be mindless, useless, corrupted and totally devoid of honor left only with a single objective � to gain political power and be re-elected. The present and former administrations further convinced the world that the U.S. leaders are prone to make monumental blunders that changed that shining beacon on the hill to no more than a flicker of its former light.
We must ask ourselves why our country has been cruising on a downward path since World War II. In 1945, the United States was most respected throughout the civilized world. The treatment of the Japanese by General McArthur�s wise governorship resulted in Japan becoming our closest ally. The German people and government were devoted to America as a savior from Soviet domination. Today, Germany is no longer that dependable ally, although it has contributed military manpower, arms and equipment to support the U.S. forces in Afghanistan. The German public has been wary of U.S. foreign policy and acquired a sense that the U.S. unrestrained, reckless spending and borrowing could have worldwide economic consequences.
In the next segment, the decline of American prestige and power is attributable to lack of the righteousness that was so evident in prior generations who experienced anger against those who would corrupt their society. Fear of damnation gave them moral strength which now is left out of the major religious denominations who accentuate God�s love, but not His retribution. All too many �Christians� are of the belief that faith alone is sufficient. They are of the mindset that being born again in Christ is sufficient to be saved and it relieves them of doing the Lord�s work. Pray and you shall be rewarded with righteousness. Oh really? Not according to the scriptures.
Our �Christian� pastors are neither of the same intellectual minds, nor for that matter the spiritual integrity of our ancestral ministers of the colonial period who urged their flocks to responsible civic action. It is this dulled obedience to dogma and inaction that have converted the people to sheeple. In other words, Christians have been neutralized in the fight for America. Today, the churches have become houses of refuge to do nothing. God�s wisdom must be asked in prayer so that our leaders can do His work. For themselves, Christians must ask God for wisdom and do good works and the politics will be resolved to make our country that bright light on the hill.
To declare to be born again is all that is necessary for salvation. Absent in that statement is self-sacrifice, God�s grace and good works.
James 4:17 says: anyone, then, who knows the good to do and does not do it, sins. And in Hebrews, God tell us in James 1:22 to be doers of the word and not just hearers only. So, where are your works to prove your salvation? See James 2:14-26.
