44 years...

Today is the 44th anniversary of the Supreme Court's landmark decision in Roe v Wade. In these past 44 years, many believers have gathered together each January to emphasize the value and the dignity of human life.  As such, I have posted two reviews to date and have a couple more coming before the month is over.  Please please start by reading the Bible, as it is the truth upon which all other ideas must be held up to.  Then I pray that you will take a look through these offerings and use them as a springboard to help inform your understanding of the cultural and political issues surrounding abortion.  The news is often bad but the hand of God is evident working throughout the tragedy.  

While all of my reviews relate to abortion, I feel the need to remind us all that euthanasia and assisted suicide are also outside of the biblical understanding of the value and dignity of human life.  These are issues that are steadily creeping in the back door.  Be diligent.

Whatever is decreed by the God of heaven, let it be done in full for the house of the God of heaven, lest his wrath be against the realm of the king and his sons.
— Ezra 7:23 ESV
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
— Psalm 139:13-16 ESV
The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
— Job 33:4 ESV
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
— Genesis 1:27 ESV
Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
— Psalm 100:3 ESV
