As this news article reports, a hoard of walking vaginas has descended upon the Republican National Convention.
These are women dressed as vaginas, protesting, generally, the pro-life position (and no-doubt spurred by senatorial candidate Akin’s recent comments and media snafu). They take offense at “men” who are legislating against their bodies. It’s akin to saying “Since you don’t have a vagina, you shouldn’t be allowed to make rules against those who do.”
They misunderstand the issue.
They believe their bodies are their own; they think the babies that they want to murder are their own.
They are wrong. God owns everything, including us. When a woman becomes pregnant, God is entrusting a young soul to her care. God said “Thou shalt not kill.” He was specific: people shall not take matters into their own hands. They shall not become judge, jury, and executioner all in one. Not only that, God demands capital punishment only for certain crimes; short-sighted selfishness is not one of them. This He classifies as murder.
Only God possesses the legal monopoly over killing. Murder is an attack against God because man is made in God’s image. God extracts vengeance by lex talionis: eye for an eye; life for a life. (Exodus 21:24) Over 60 million babies have been murdered legally since 1973 in America. We can expect judgment for this in God’s good time. Be it by physical death or killing by conversion, God will act.
[Let’s pray that He will extract His vengeance by slaying millions to sin through conversion to Christianity in a sustained revival.]
These protesters falsely believe they are waging war against male politicians who are trying to legislate against their bodies. In truth, they are waging a war against the Lord by demanding that God’s representatives legalize murder (or, more accurately, demanding that they not make murder illegal) — which God strictly prohibits. They are asserting that their judgment supercedes that of the Lord.
They should repent from this viewpoint and recognize that abortion is murder, and it is never okay to legalize murder. Because of our permissiveness, we have allowed our country to legislate the worst genocide in history — one that remains ongoing.
