Does Murder Begat Murder?-A Commentary

Anyone who knows me very well should be familiar with my stand on abortion and those who perform them. This practice is a blight on what we would call "civilized" society with the blessings of our highest court. It should be noted that these courts do not honor the will of the people in most of these cases. Our President wants us to find "common ground" in keeping abortion legal while trying to reduce abortions. That's kind of like asking a drowning man if he wants a drink of water.

One would have to be a hermit to miss all the media coverage when the late term abortionist, Dr. George Tiller was killed while ushering in his church recently. Tiller was responsible by his own admission of performing some 60,000 late term abortions at his "practice". That's more people than those who died in the entire Viet Nam war. The media consistently used the words late term in their reports. Let's be clear about this. What they were describing was the practice of partial birth abortion, a practice so cruel and bizarre that I won't describe it here. Tiller had faced charges in court over his practices, but thanks to limp wristed judges and juries, they were dismissed.

Do I think we should take the law into our hands as Tiller's killer recently did? Absolutely not. A just God will judge those one day for their actions against his children. Genesis 9:6 tells us,"Whoever sheds man's blood, by man shall be shed; for in the image of God He made man." (NKJV) Actions like this set put a black mark upon all the recent progress made by pro-life groups. Dr. Tiller's actions were wrong, but so were his killer's. God valued Dr. Tiller's life as much as the some 60,000 partially born babies he killed. God always has the final say. Sometimes we bring judgement upon ourselves in this life time, as Ezekiel 35:6 tells us,"therefore, as I live, says the Lord God, I will prepare you for blood, and blood shall pursue you; since you have not hated blood, therefore blood shall pursue you."(NKJV)

Jesus is coming soon! let's all pray we are ready...God bless, keith 1 Cor 13
