Abortions are at the Lowest Rate in the Past 20 Years in New Zealand
(Psalm 139:13-15, Jeremiah 1:4-5)
***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, in Proverbs 22:24-25 the Bible says, "Do not make friends with a hot tempered man, do not associate with one easily angered, or you may learn his ways and get yourself ensnared." What if this hot tempered man is your father and he is impossible to get along with?
ANSWER: First, pray for him to know God's peace. Let him know you love him and always will, but unless he can control his temper, being around him is not possible because NOBODY has the right to abuse you, even your father.
In New Zealand, abortions are at the lowest rate in the past 20 years. One of things being credited with this drop in the number of babies being slaughtered in that nation is an ad campaign that calls abortion what it is...MURDER! This is exactly why those who advocate the killing of innocent babies in this nation will never call abortion what it is, and why they fight every effort to allow the mother to see a picture of her baby in the womb!
The phrase advocates of killing babies and their allies in the media have brainwashed people into using is "pro-choice." Think for a second. If you are for life you are called pro-life. The only "choice" is to kill your baby or not, so you are either pro-life or you are pro-death! The latest clever phrases to soft-sell the slaughter of innocent babies are "women's health issues," "reproductive rights," "a woman's right to choose," and "the war on women." My friend, there is no war on women, but there is a war on innocent babies in the womb!
For the nearly 15 years Liveprayer has been online, for the 10 years the TV program has been on the air, I have faithfully delivered God's message that the legalized slaughter of over 4,000 innocent babies every DAY was going to unleash God's wrath on this nation.
We will never forget 9/11 and the 3,000 innocence people who died that day. We will always remember the horror of Hurricane Katrina and how it virtually destroyed one of the great cities in our country, killing hundreds and displacing hundreds of thousands of innocent people. Yet, every 24 hours we legally slaughter 4,000 innocent babies and we never even give it a second thought!
*DID YOU THINK TODAY ABOUT THE FACT IN THE LAST 24 HOURS 4,000 INNOCENT BABIES ACROSS THIS COUNTRY WERE SLAUGHTERED???
Planned "how to kill your baby" Parenthood is a sick and disgusting organization. How would you like to go to work each day at a place where their business is slaughtering innocent babies? They make their money by charging women to kill their baby. What a wonderful way to use some of what God has entrusted to you. They make their money through donations. How fulfilling it must be to go to sleep at night knowing that you sacrificed some of your hard earned dollars to help kill an innocent baby.
They also are given hundreds of millions a year by the Federal Government to finance their baby killing business. In their recent data, they brag that they performed apx 300,000 murders last year. During that time they received $345.1 million in clinic income, $212.2 million in donations, and $305.3 MILLION DOLLARS FROM US TAX PAYERS!!! Their total income was $902.8 million with expenses of $847 million, leaving them a profit of $55.8 million dollars!!! What a great business they have!!!
The fact that our Federal Government makes the practice of infanticide legal in this nation is sickening to me, and I can only imagine how it sickens God. The fact that the Federal Government takes $300 MILLION TAX DOLLARS and gives it to this organization to slaughter babies disgusts me more than I can even begin to put into words. The government not only make killing babies legal, they actually take our tax dollars and give them to the leading organization whose sole purpose is to slaughter innocent babies.
If people want to pay someone to kill their baby that is their choice. If someone wants to give their money to an organization whose business is killing babies, that is their choice. TO TAKE TAX DOLLARS AND GIVE THEM TO A PRIVATE ORGANIZATION SO THEY CAN SLAUGHTER INNOCENT BABIES IS UNCONSCIONABLE AND HAS TO STOP IMMEDIATELY!
My friend, we not only are long overdue God's wrath, but we deserve God's wrath! Forget the fact we have turned from God to worship the false gods and idols of the world. Forget the fact that we live in total rebellion to God and His Truth. Simply the fact that we slaughter over 4,000 innocent babies every single day in this nation is enough for us to suffer whatever punishment God metes out!
I keep asking myself when will this nation wake up? I am afraid like the children of Israel so many times in the Old Testament, we have become so lost in our sin, so blinded by our rejection of and rebellion to God, that we no longer possess a conscience. Our hearts are so hardened and our soul is seared that we no longer care.
I love you and care about you so much. Knowing that it is only a matter of moments before God says enough is enough and pours out His wrath upon this nation, it would be easy for hopelessness to set in and do nothing. That is the mindset satan wants us to have. Instead, now is the time to do more! We are the victors, it is satan who is defeated!
God needs all of His children, now more than ever, to rise up and take their stand for Him in these last days. Each of us have our own specific calling, our own special missions to perform for the Master. Now is the time to be more faithful than ever. Now is the time to work harder than we ever have. Now is the time for make even greater sacrifices, to make even more of a commitment to the Lord and His work.
Can we ever take the Federal Government out of the business of slaughtering innocent babies? I pray daily for that moment to come. We have to do all we can to at least get them to stop funding this private organization whose only business is killing innocent babies. In the meantime, as we fight those political battles, we have to keep fighting this issue on the ground by changing hearts and lives.
In just over a year since I put up the video of an actual abortion being performed on the Liveprayer website ( http://www.liveprayer.com/aborsion.cfm ), we have received emails from over 20,000 women who were planning on killing their baby, watched that video, and decided to let their baby live. I have no doubt many more babies are alive today because of that one video clip.
*As a side note, we know it takes a woman AND A MAN to create a baby. Sadly missing in the conversation about abortion is the man's feelings, his input. I deal daily with almost as many men as women who have the scar of abortion in their past, yet they are invisible, non-existent in the conversation.
We have to continue to speak out and not be silent, to let women know there are options to killing their baby, to educate young people on God's plan for sex and relationships, and like in New Zealand call abortion what it, MURDER, while leading people to faith in Christ and the Truth of His Word!
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
