The Sanctity of Life

             On January 22, 1973 the United States Supreme Court made a decision that made the known deaths of over 57 million unborn children legal in the US.  The case is known as Roe v. Wade.  The Supreme Court ruled 7-2 that a right to privacy under the due process clause of the 14th Amendment extended to a woman’s decision to have an     abortion.  
It is sad to see so many encouraged and enabled to give up their babies.  Thanks to some who were encouraged or planned to have an abortion, but changed their minds and did not go through with their intentions.  A few, out of many, who were almost aborted but hearts were changed and given the chance at life include:  Tim Tebow, Cher, Celine Dion, & Nick Cannon.  All of these people, who were almost aborted, have become famous in the public eye. 
What does the Bible say about abortion?  The Bible teaches that life starts at conception and it is not our choice to take a life.  Genesis 25:21-26; Jeremiah 1:5; Amos 1:13; Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:40-41; and Psalm 139:14-16 describe life beginning in the womb.  I think it is      interesting to notice God’s view on hurting life in the womb according to Exodus 21:22-25.  If harm is given to a child in the womb, you shall give life for life, eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth. 
When given the opportunity, let us take a stand for life!

Evolutionary thought is all around us.  From the kids movies of "The Good Dinosaur" to the running tv series "The Big Bang Theory." Evolutionary thought is in just about everything we do.  If you don't believe me look around you this next week and see how many times it is referred to on a movie, book, billboard, tv series.  When you start to look for it you will realize how much it had infiltrated our society and accepted as fact.

Here are 5 Reasons Not to Accept Evolution

I am talking about Macro-evolution which is the thought that all life descended from a common ancestor.

1. The Lack of Fossil Evidence - millions of fossils have been collected and cataloged but there is not one single transitional fossil that shows one species evolving into a new species.  Examples that have been debunked include: Neanderthal Man, Nebraska Man, Piltdown Man, Java Man, and Rhodesian Man to name a few.  All of these were thought to be the missing link only to come up short.

2. The Impossibility of Life by Blind, Random Chance - Most scientist acknowledge that any possibility less than (1 x 10^50) one in 10 to the 50th power is considered an impossibility.  Yet Evolutionist Harold Marowitz estimated the probability for chance formation of even the simpliest for of living organism at 1 x 10^340,000,000.  This is impossible.

3. It Contradicts the Laws of Science - Evolutionary thought goes against the 2nd law of thermodynamic, the law of cause and effect, and the law of Bio-genesis.

4. It Fails to Pass the Scientific Method - The testing done for evolution cannot be accepted because it is falsifiable which meas the hypothesis is bad and must be reconsidered.

5. It Fails to Answer the Question of How Something Came from Nothing. 

Rom. 1:18-20 - For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

If we seek out truth we will find it.  Have you found God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth?
