Religion IS A JOKE!
This is the definition of a religion according to dictionary.com
“a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, esp. when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.”
The cool thing is that Christianity isn’t a religion! We don’t know the purpose of the universe, who said God was a superhuman agency? We don’t have ritual observances. And a moral code is bestowed in everyone!
Let’s take it one by one.
Purpose of the Universe. We don’t know the purpose of the universe. We don’t know why God loves us, we don’t know why God created us, we don’t know why God created the world. But what we do know is that He loves us, He created us, and He created the world. Those are just facts. Even if God were to tell us why he did all these things, our brains would probably explode because it’s too overwhelming for us to comprehend.
Superhuman agency. What on earth does that even mean? God is not man, and that’s the beauty of it. It’s true that God came down in the form of man. But that shows just how humble He is! To come down into the Earth He created. To humble Himself to creation. To become one of the most dependent forms of human. To be born in a manger, where pigs and horses eat from. But lastly, to die a sinner’s death. This is our God. If God was man, than we would have no chance of being saved, but since He took on the FORM of man, that made Him able to take away OUR mess ups, our wrongs, our screw ups.
Ritual observances. If ritual observances defined a religion, then homework would be a religion. As Christians, we don’t do these “rituals” because God forces us. But we have meaning behind it. It’s because of God’s amazing grace and love and compassion that makes us WANT to worship Him, pray to Him, give Him glory. We fall down before Him because we want to as a RESPONSE to what He’s done for us and to us. Dictionary.com defines a ritual as:
“An established or prescribed procedure for a religious or other rite.”
None of this was ever prescribed, or a procedure, or established. Notice how all revivals are spontaneous, unplanned, totally out of the blue. How is that established or prescribed? But during revivals we pray, fast, sing praises, etc. Those are all “rituals” (as others see it) but none of that fits the definition of a ritual.
Moral code. Even atheists have a moral code. They know it’s wrong to cheat, murder, steal, etc. So how does religion contain a moral code when everyone else has a moral code? By this definition it says only religion has a moral code. But clearly that’s not true.
Now that we know Christianity is not a religion, then what is it? A relationship! God sent His ONE AND ONLY BEGOTTEN Son to DIE a criminal’s death. FOR US. So that we may become RIGHTEOUS before His throne. Wow. What other religion has forgiveness and grace? Dictionary.com says a relationship is:
“a connection, association, or involvement.”
It is a connection through prayer. We connect personally, one on one, with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We associate ourselves as once sinners lost in our transgressions, but renewed as beautiful and worthy through God’s unfailing love. It’s an involvement because we’re constantly praising Him, worshipping Him, making our lives in-sync with His. This is a relationship, and God has given it to us.
He’s waiting for us to run to Him. What do you have to lose?
President Ronald Reagan once said:
“Simple morality dictates that unless and until someone can prove the unborn human is not alive, we must give it the benefit of the doubt and assume it is (alive). And, thus, it should be entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
Simply said, some may believe that an unborn child is not HUMAN, but we can all agree that it is alive. Within five days (which is nearly impossible to tell if you’re pregnant, because most pregnancy tests do not detect this), the “pre-embryo” is already alive. It contains the four keys that determine something as alive (by all scientists) and that is:
3. Response to stimuli/environment
At the moment of conception, the zygote contains ALL THE CHROMOSOMES. This means that it is UNIQUE! It has everything already laid out, it just needs to unfold. By the time it’s a blastocyst, it already has experienced all the four requirements of life.
This isn’t a usual set of tissue. This tissue contains the potential of a human being, which will fully reveal itself in under 9 months. I would really like to see any tissue of mine become a human being. 40% of all abortions are performed AFTER THE FETUS CAN ALREADY FEEL PAIN. Imagine how painful it is for your limbs to be ripped apart from you. For you to be burned by saline chemicals. To be sucked out of a vacuum. To be cut into pieces.
Besides that, I would like to say that WE ARE SURVIVORS!
President Reagan also said, “I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion is already born.”
We have survived this mass genocide. This is a genocide, and a holocaust. Unborn children are being discriminated against because they were not “planned” and because of that they are being killed off by the masses. 1/4 to 1/3 of these children DIDN’T MAKE IT because their parents didn’t think they deserved life because they came at an “inconvenient” time or they were an “inconvenience”. We on the other hand we’re lucky. Our mothers and fathers wanted us, and if they didn’t they found mothers and fathers who wanted us, and with that beauty, we should all appreciate life. How can you be for abortion and be alive? You can’t because with saying this, you are creating a hypocritical attitude. It’s similar to saying, “I am for taking tests, but I’ve never taken one, or don’t want to take one” or “I am allowing murder to happen, but I don’t want to be murdered.” What has this nation become? Fighting for the right to kill? A fetus is a life. A fetus is a human. A fetus is a person. During slavery, to make slavery legal, the government redefined the definition of a human. They discriminated against blacks, and made them not human, even though clearly they are. And because of this, blacks were allowed to be slaves, and other people were allowed to own them as property, and to use them as commerce. NO WHERE IN THE CONSTITUTION does it say “right to privacy”. It is interpreted, but it never says. I can interpret the 2nd amendment saying, “I have the right to bear arms” to “I have the right to hug all my neighbors while holding a gun.” Interpretation differs, and by one single interpretation, we have changed the nation upside down, starting with over 50,000,000 deaths.
I say we’ve had enough. I say it’s time to end this. I say we fight for the weak. I say we are survivors.
I would like to quote her:
“Organized charity itself is the symptom of a malignant social disease. Those vast, complex, interrelated organizations aiming to control and to diminish the spread of misery and destitution and all the menacing evils that spring out of this sinisterly fertile soil, are the surest sign that our civilization has bred, is breeding and perpetuating constantly increasing numbers of defectives, delinquents and dependents…….to breed out of the race the scourges of transmissible disease, mental defect, poverty, lawlessness, crime … since these classes would be decreasing in number instead of breeding like weeds….such a plan would … reduce the birthrate among the diseased, the sickly, the poverty stricken and anti-social classes, elements unable to provide for themselves, and the burden of which we are all forced to carry”
“The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
“… human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ‘spawning … human beings who never should have been born.” (about blacks, immigrants, and poor people)
purpose of birth control: “to create a race of thoroughbreds,” “More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.”
on YMCA: “brothels of the Spirit and morgues of Freedom!”
“We are failing to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying … a dead weight of human waste … an ever-increasing spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.”
Margaret Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood. She was a key leader in the birth-control movement, and as you can probably tell, was a huge eugenist activist. These are the foundations of Planned Parenthood, only today, they have turned into another direction, one Margaret Sanger would have not enjoyed all that much. And that is to PROMOTE sex. But what Sanger would’ve liked was the underlying message on Planned Parenthood’s website:
“Improve women’s health and safety” (does making them sterile improve their health?)
“prevent unintended pregnancies” (or basically to wipe away a people they DON’T want)
“informed and responsible choices” (or running away from your consequences by abortion?)
Let’s keep in mind that Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics are a business:
For awhile now, the misnomer of being “Pro-Choice” is that the choice itself is no where to be found (or very difficult). How many times did Planned Parenthood actually bring up or refer adoption as a choice or an option? The number is roughly around 1 reference to every 8 abortions. Why do they rarely bring up adoption? Because Planned Parenthood is a BUSINESS. It’s all about money. If they brought up adoption, or any situation that would possibly make them lose money, then why would they do it? I would say Planned Parenthood has a wonderful marketing strategy. In 2007, they brought in over a billion dollars… in ABORTIONS ALONE.
Not only that, but 64% of women have reported that they felt pressured to abort.
Also, if they were truly a “caring” facility, then maybe they should clean up their messes. We are left taking care of the grieving women who feel guilty because of what they’ve done. And unlike them, it’s not for money, it’s because we genuinely care, but maybe these statistics would go down if Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics properly educated their “clients” before instead of rushing the abortions.
23% had hallucinations related to the abortion
35% perceived visitation from the aborted child
54% had nightmares related to the abortion
69% experienced feelings of “craziness”
73% had flashbacks of abortion experience
81% had a preoccupation with the aborted child
61% increased their use of alcohol
65% had thoughts of suicide
69% were sexually inhibited
73% had flashbacks of the abortion
77% experienced an inability to communicate
81% experienced frequent crying
How about giving some unbiased information and properly educate their clients before the abortion, and then asking them what they think? Or how about showing them an ultrasound? Or asking them if they are sure of this decision? Or told them of the after effects of having an abortion? Then give them the true choice based off of proper education.
No one ever regrets having a child. Don’t event try to argue.
Along with all of this, I’m Pro-Choice… God gave us choices because of his sovereignty and holiness and genuine love for us. We’re all given choices everyday. We all have choices to sin. It’s up to us to make the correct choice, and with proper education and TRUTH, the correct choice is so evident. A child is a child, inside the womb and out. If we would all just pause to think about the child’s choice of whether or not he/she can live, that would be greatly appreciated. What’s the difference between murder outside of the womb and inside? NOTHING.
I also don’t hear any stories of women saying “an abortion is the best decision of my life” or women becoming pro-choice after watching an ultrasound of a child being aborted. These things don’t happen. I will not stand for those who defend this injustice. Unalienable rights are NOT a choice.
On a side note, I find it hilarious that Planned Parenthood would use “anti-family” to categorize being “pro-life”… I hope they do know that we’re trying to KEEP the child in a FAMILY so that the family can stay together. But there is a part of respect and honor, we continue to call them “Pro-Choice” so that they may continue to call us “Pro-Life”.
I will not find common ground.
I will not negotiate.
I will not be satisfied.
I will not give up.
I will not put up with.
I will not deal with.
I will not find a medium.
I will not agree with.
I will not follow.
I will not meet half way.
I will not compromise.
The thing with abortion is this: we can’t find peace until this is settled. Until I see the deaths of 4000 innocent children dead each day END, I will not compromise. A message to Obama: “open hearts, open minds, fair-minded words” does not exist. I will not be satisfied until this ends now. I’ll tell you what I will do, I will and I am, fighting for the rights of the unborn, and until that day when everyone realizes the truth, I will continue to love them, and give them an opportunity at life.
