You know all about the Nazis. But did you know some of the things they did are, in concept, being done in the USA, the UK and other parts of the Christendom? I use that word loosely. Eugenics seeks to annihilate the mentally handicapped minorities and the terminally ill. This article is an introduction to a series of articles on eugenics, sex-selected-abortion, human embryonic stem cell, research, and physician assisted suicide. The Bible will be applied to these controversial subjects.
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.”
– Proverbs 14:34
Murder on all accounts. That is the verdict.
We are all aware and weary of the statistics on shootings, suicides, and the horror of death in our communities. Satan stole the show when he deceived Eve and Adam. He took their souls by kneeling on their desire to have the wisdom of gods. Their spirits died from unity with the God of life with the worldly wisdom of sin. (Genesis 3) Adam’s death was caused by the deceptive liar, Satan. The number of people becoming like the Devil with their lies, deception and murder is incredible. We are seeing it on the streets via the media.
“You are of a father—the Devil, and the desires of your father you will to do; he was a manslayer from the beginning, and he has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him; when one may speak the falsehood, he speaks of his own, because he is a liar—also his father.” (John 8:44 Literal Standard Version)
Sin merits death, separation from the living God (Romans 6:23). But the gift is continuous life in Jesus Christ our Lord. When we yield to the grace of God, we become innocent by the blood of Jesus shed on the cross.
The worst and most gruesome ways to take lives are acceptable.
While we are extremely against murder in the form of shootings, we debate things the Nazis were in favor of in WWII. And parts of our free society want to accept the issue of murder in the following forms. The Bible tells the truth, albeit controversial.
In most forms, eugenics is a diabolical evil. In history, government programs, like the Nazis, aimed to kill minority populations. But what about the USA? Yes, right here in America. Eugenics seeks to annihilate the mentally handicapped, minorities, and the terminally ill. Let me explain some threads to this point.
Sex-selected abortion is when a parent decides to end a pregnancy because she wants to choose for herself whether she gives birth to a boy or girl. If you think this is something only the rich elite do, think again. Planned parenthood encourages the construction of abortion clinics in minority areas.
A little research on your part will demonstrate a sickness on the part of those who want to breed out minorities and the mentally handicapped, by aborting the weak. This is an ungodly thing to do. It cuts against the will of God who knits children together in the womb.
“The oracle of the word of the LORD concerning Israel: Thus declares the LORD, who stretched out the heavens and founded the earth and formed the spirit of man within him.” (Zechariah 12:1)
Embryonic stem cell research
Embryonic stem cell research on humans is unethical and anti-Christian. Embryos are human babies in their earliest stage of life. God handcrafts a person’s spirit together with care. Scientists prefer the embryo over other stem cells because of the pure qualities of it. Like king Cyrus, Isaiah 45, and the book of Ezra where the prophecy is fulfilled, the Biblical reality is God knows everyone by name before they are conceived.
According to James 2:26, the body without the spirit is dead. Where human life exists, there is a spirit. When the embryo is murdered the spirit returns to God who made it. But, to destroy an embryo is murder when science kills. An evil deed shall not go unpunished.
“For behold, I begin to work disaster at the city that is called by my name, and shall you go unpunished? You shall not go unpunished, for I am summoning a sword against all the inhabitants of the earth, declares the LORD of hosts.” (Jeremiah 29:25 English Standard Version)
Dr. Kevorkian was an American pathologist and euthanasia proponent. He publicly championed a terminal patient’s right to die by physician-assisted suicide, embodied in his quote, “Dying is not a crime,” Kevorkian said that he assisted at least 130 patients to that end. (Wikipedia) Dr. Kevorkian went to prison. His philosophies are no longer shackled there. Euthanasia of the terminally ill is and always will be murder, even though in some physician circles it is now considered merciful.
Simple doctrine and Bible truth.
People like to make simple truth complicated. God’s truth is clear, “You will not murder.” (Romans 13:9). I suppose you will call me narrow-minded, but I take that precisely as written. Time has proven when Christians teach the Gospel, people turn to Father God for hope. This country needs a lot more inspiration than Lady Liberty is offering today. God’s Word will not return to Him in vain (Isaiah 55:11).
Jesus is the greater light, and we are the lower beams. This nation has been through much pain and division. Believers show life and unity in Christ by allowing the world to see the glorious light we walk in. Because of the Gospel, we have hope. The Bible we teach is not a meaningless mission. God says,
“So is My word that goeth out of My mouth, It turneth not back unto Me empty, But hath done that which I desired, And prosperously effected that for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11 Young’s Literal Translation)
We all have been exposed for our sins. Falling short of glorifying God seems to be our reality (Romans 3:23). Even so, Christians alone have Jesus Christ’s sacrifice to enable them to stand in God’s grace. (Romans 5:1-2). Satan sought to destroy Him as a babe. The world can be a hateful place no matter the historical era. You and I have hope.
Believers who walk in the light have no cause to fear the ruffian types who steal and stab for their own pleasure. But fear and being tossed into an everlasting black fire where Jesus says there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth (Matthew 24:51). Ultimately, man can do nothing to us. God can do it all.
