Isaiah says, ‘For unto us a Child is born’

Because of the horrific event in Connecticut, I believe there is no better time than now to talk about the sacredness of life.

When the parents are asked to talk about their child who was just brutally murdered, they speak about them with love and joy while fighting back tears from the pain they are now suffering. It’s just another reminder to me that all life is sacred.

From the moment of conception, all aspects of our human nature and our uniqueness are in development. Whether we see it or not does not deny the truth of that fact.

Our society for the most part and our laws do not reflect this. We value usefulness and accomplishment more than life itself. We treat each other as objects; we abort, we experiment, we kill, we unplug, we starve, we suffocate, we mutilate, we rape, we molest, we traffic, we exploit, we sell and we throw babies in Dumpsters. And we wonder why these tragedies happen?

The greatest tragedy in this country is we legally kill millions of children before they become elementary students. Where’s the newscast bringing us that tragedy? A country that kills its own children will never have peace. Never!

My heart aches for those children in Connecticut who were so brutally murdered at a time of great innocence. My heart equally aches for those children killed by abortion at a time of innocence and in a place (a mother’s womb) where evil hands dismember life. I pray for all children who’ve been killed, born and unborn, and I especially pray for the close to 20 children I helped kill when I was an operating room technician in the Air Force.

May God have mercy on all those who’ve participated in abortion or allowed it to remain the law of our once great nation.

When you can legally kill your own child, what message does that send?

Today we celebrate – for unto us a Child is born. Do we celebrate life in all of its stages? Or do we make choices based on economics and convenience?

For unto us a Child was born, and he was savagely beaten and brutally murdered. When we as a nation forget that Child and are no longer able to teach about his birth, his life, his death and his resurrection, then we have lost our heart and our conscience will turn to evil.
