All I Have is Christ
Enjoy folks! :)
Suppose there is a young couple who find out that they are going to have twins. Everything is going along fine, and they are excited about starting a family. One day there are some complications with the pregnancy and the husband rushes his wife to the hospital. After an agonizing wait the Dr. come out and addresses the husband. "I'm sorry" the Dr. says "There is no way that I can save your wife and the two babies."
The husband is crushed, but the Dr. continues, "However, I can save your wife and one of the babies if we terminate one of the fetuses."
All of the sudden the husband is faced with a choice. Does he choose to kill one person to save two others? At least only one person dies instead of three!
NOOOOO!!! Human beings do not have the right to make that call. We cannot decide who lives and who dies. God controls the death of sparrows (Matt. 10:29) and He certainly controls the death of people. In this case, the morally right thing to do is step out in faith and trust God for the life of all three people. Yes, the situation is impossible! Yes, it's a hard decision to make! Perhaps God will be gracious and save the mother and both the babies. Maybe all three of them will die. Whatever happens is in God's hands. From a human perspective this seems like a horrible gamble. The Husbands DUTY is to make a decision that leaves God in control of life.Back to politics. Blow that example up 1,000 or 1,000,000 times and consider it in terms of national policy. One candidate stands for policies that will kill millions of babies. The other stands for policies that will kill fewer babies. The fact is...there ARE candidates who are completely pro-life! Sure, humanly speaking, it is impossible for them to win. But since when were Christians commanded to stand for something or someone that appears more likely to win? Since when were we called to compromise Biblical principles on the alter of political expediency? It is our DUTY to leave God in control of life. That means there is no option to kill one baby to save two lives. Obama is completely pro-choice. Romney is "Pro-life with exceptions." The view that we're saving many babies by voting for the lesser of two evils is a view that fails to trust those infant lives to the sovereignty of God.
