Just a quick word on the repeal of Roe vs Wade. I’m not American, but it is heartening to see there is at least one Western country where the forces of death are not completely in the ascendency.
Although it’s necessary to see what this is, and what it is not. A repeal of a judicial outreach, to return to the people the ability to make these decisions. And, what decisions will be made? I suspect that the lines of division in America are going to continue to deepen. A country with two tribes, two peoples, divided against itself. But at least there is a fight there!
Compare the mood music coming from other western leaders. Isaiah 5 v20 comes to mind…
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
Our societies are so far enmeshed in our own darkness that we embrace and celebrate the murdering of millions of innocent lives on the altar of choice. We at least anesthetise our animals before killing them. But our unwanted children, we sacrifice them in the fire and call it a good. But the blood is not forgotten, and a reckoning will come.
As for the Church, we must choose this day whom we will serve. So many still seem half asleep at the altar of Moloch. We need to know that light has nothing to do with darkness, and we must live and witness accordingly!
