Life Is Not a Choice

Driving down the highway last night with my son, we passed a sign like this one (without the form).

Although I understand the idea is to say Life is good, but I simply can't grant the premise that it is a choice...ever! When we do this, we simply grant those who oppose God's Law the foundation for doing so.

Here is more evidence for the doctrine of Total Depravity. Mankind is always suppressing the truth of God's existence and the constant reminder in this creation that we abide under His wrath. FoxNews has reported a story of a woman who attempted to murder...ahem...abort her son. She just could not take the possibility of a child born with some kind of disease that might kill him. So she tried to kill the child in the womb. I guess out of sight is out of mind. Sad...truly sad.

In this article the writer states, "However, doctors told the couple from Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, that this child was likely to survive, so they decided he deserved a chance."

What arrogance of mankind. Men are often accused of being oppressive and suppressing women's rights. Yet, in the name of freedom from oppression, here is an example of the thinking of Feminism. Suppressing the rights of an unborn child.

This is a denial of the created order and a clear act of the rebellion against God's Law. Babies are not choices. They are gifts from God no matter how long He places them in our care.
