In “Made Peace With It” Before Aborting" Sarah Terzo quotes a pregnant Planned Parenthood worker who chose to kill her baby as saying the following:
"I felt this entity within me, flooding me with immense strength and love… While pregnant, there was also the feeling that I was never alone. I spent a lot of time lying on my bed with my hand on my belly letting the buzz of contentment vibrate through me (but) I am selfish and I know it. I want to travel the world and be a perpetual student. I know that, from my perspective, having a child would mean giving up many of my dreams, and until I am as joyful about the prospect of becoming a parent as I am about my other pursuits, I can’t give a child what he/she deserves" and though "I was amazed by the creation occurring within me. .…" I realized that having "an abortion is not always traumatic. If you can get beyond societal shame and expectation, you might find a message just waiting to be discovered. I never turned away from the fact that I would be ending a potential life. Facing and accepting this was the most important thing I could’ve done to prepare myself for my abortion....This might sound strange to some, but I actually talked with the being inside of me. I made peace with it. I knew that there was a reason for this pregnancy and it wasn’t about becoming a mother.” (LifeNews.com, Nov. 21, 2014)
In the face of this shocking evil most Americans, and this includes large numbers of Christians, no longer know what to say because the Christian Church has for the most part, failed in its' duty to teach and defend the eternally unchanging Truth of God, His Moral Law (Ten Commandments), the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, the fall and sin nature of all men and women and their desperate need of redemption and salvation. Thus many Christians either do not know or are in denial of the highly uncomfortable truth that it is the unfettered sin nature---their own and that of other people--- that is responsible for America's growing tyranny of evil.
So in the eyes of the Holy Triune God Who created man in His spiritual image, what are the primary sins of the woman who freely willed the murder of her baby? To begin, the practice of abortion by both Christians and non-Christians,
"...is spiritual prostitution to an idol, defiles God's sanctuary and profanes His holy name. God alone is the Author of life and it is not the creature's prerogative to question the Creator's wisdom in bringing to life a fellow human being at conception. Whenever men disregard their Creator's wise judgment by destroying His innocent creation, they are serving another god. They are, in fact, spiritually prostituting themselves to the idolatrous self whom they believe is wiser in its value judgments." (Abortion and the Ancient Practice of Child Sacrifice, Andrew White, MD, 1/5/2012, Associates for Biblical Research)
“Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image (Gen 9:5–6; ESV)
The Planned Parenthood worker is guilty of spiritually prostituting herself to idolatrous self (love of self; narcissism), and from ancient days such idolatry has led to abortion (murder) and all other forms of evil including lust for power over and domination of other people, property, and resources (ancient pagan despots; modern pagan Communists, Socialists, Progressives); unrelenting war in pursuit of these goals, speech control, shocking cruelty, deceit, treachery, sodomy, bestiality, pedophilia, pederasty, incest, slavery and individual and mass murder. In our own time for instance, science has become the instrument of idolatrous man's will issuing in the elevation of science and evolutionary thinking above the Revealed Word of God.
Defiant science-adulating evolutionary theists and progressive creationists insist on displacing the Genesis account of creation by forcing the wildly popular Big Bang into the Bible, the inspired, written Word of God. However, not only does the Big Bang not fit into the Bible but it also turns the Creator, Jesus Christ, into a liar, for He said that Adam and Eve were there "from the beginning of the creation" (Mark 10: 6; Gen. 1: 26-27) rather than several billion years after the beginning of creation as evolutionary speculators hold.
For instance, when teaching about marriage, Jesus said that at the beginning of creation God:
“made them male and female. … For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” So they are no longer two, but one’ (Mark 10:6–8).
Here Jesus quoted Genesis 1:27 and Genesis 2:24 about a real first man and first woman who were the first couple, and this is the basis for marriage between one man and one woman today. Moreover, Adam (the first man) was the Holy God's spiritual image-bearer right from the start. Evolution teaches instead that a whole population of humans eventually evolved from ape-like creatures. Adam however, was fully person, fully man, fully embedded soul within flesh (body) right from the beginning, hence Church Father Tertullian condemns child sacrifice, saying that no matter how it is rationalized, it is still murder:
"....murder is once for all forbidden; so even the child in the womb, while yet the mother's blood is still being drawn on to form the human being, it is not lawful to destroy. To forbid birth is only quicker murder. It makes no difference whether one take away the life once born or destroy it as it comes to birth. He is a man, who is to be a man, the fruit is always present in the seed." (Tertullian, Apologeticus IX.- 6, 8)
Evolutionary cosmologies are as ancient as the practices of men worshipping themselves as gods and of child sacrifice, sodomy, incest, and many other evils. In fact, evolutionary thinking facilitates evil since if Darwin in particular and evolutionary thinking in general is right, then there was no fall so no sin nature and man is either a trousered ape or bio-machine. As well, there is no ultimate fixed meaning or higher purpose to life except what we choose:
" You are born, you suffer, you die — that's it. Perhaps, if you're lucky, you may get recycled as organic manure — but beyond that, you're just a number that happened to come up in the great casino of the universe." (Darwin, Spurgeon and the 'black dog,' Carl Wieland, Creation.com)
If man is nothing but an excited node of evolution in process of evolutionary ascent with neither hope of physical resurrection nor any accountability to his Maker for his actions here in this world, hence no fear of Judgment and hell, then he is free to be evil. So why not euthanize the elderly? And why should Obama and his henchmen respect and abide by the Constitution rather than do whatever they want to do? Why should parents not allow their children to be taught evolutionary science, daily absorb the violent messages within most video games, rap music, and hard rock? And why ought children brought up on evolutionary science and violence not brutally attack each other and their parents? Why should sexually-perverted adults not sexually pervert children, toss unwanted babies into trash bins, and use the force of perverted, meaningless law to vandalize and plunder the property and wealth of others? Why not redefine sodomy, pedophilia, pederasty, bestiality and lesbianism as 'gay' and then marry 'gay' couples in Washington's National Cathedral? (Washington National Cathedral to Wed Same-Sex Couples, Ben Brumfield, CNN, Jan. 9, 2013)
And if you're the Planned Parenthood worker why not kill your unborn baby if its' life interferes with your selfish ambitions? Among the idolatrous social elite of Punic Carthage for example, the institution of child sacrifice (murder) was a common practice and may have assisted in the consolidation and maintenance of family wealth, of eliciting favors from the gods, and as a convenient way of disposing of unwanted and illegitimately conceived babies.
In 1921 the largest cemetery of sacrificed infants in the ancient Near East was discovered at Carthage. Hundreds of burial urns filled with the cremated bones of infants, mostly newborns but even some children up to six years of age were uncovered at Carthage. All of the victims had been burned to death on the altars of self-serving idolatrous men and women.
The actual rite of child sacrifice at Carthage has been graphically described by Diodorus Siculus:
"There was in their city a bronze image of Cronus extending its hands, palms up and sloping toward the ground, so that each of the children when placed thereon rolled down and fell into a sort of gaping pit filled with fire." (Abortion and the Ancient Practice of Child Sacrifice, Andrew White, MD, 1/5/2012, Associates for Biblical Research)
Plutarch, a first and second century A.D. Greek author, adds to the description:
"...the whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums so that the cries of wailing should not reach the ears of the people." (ibid)
Throughout Western European and American society evolutionary thinking as 'evolutionary fact' has finally reached saturation point in government, law, media, education, healthcare, psychiatry, the public arena and increasingly within the whole body of the Church, which is why pathological lying, atheism, agnosticism, occult paganism, suicide, lawlessness, mass murder, decadence, sodomy, abortion, and euthanasia have increased exponentially throughout America and the world.
All of this makes a devilish kind of sense if the personal Triune God Whose Living Words called all things into existence in six days of creation does not exist and life has no higher, fixed meaning or purpose since the evolving universe of matter and energy either created itself from nothing or was enabled toward this end by a god shaped and controlled by men as evolutionary theology posits.
Large numbers of Westerners both within and without the church now reject the Genesis account and believe instead that modern secular (neo-pagan and mystical pantheist) science has proven the earth and cosmos to be billions of years old, and that every living thing, from fish to dogs, apes and humans, evolved from a single cell which itself is the result of combination of chemicals. Most believe that primordial matter resulted from the Big Bang. Certain high profile Christians like Pope Francis, Hugh Ross and the influential theologians and scholars who support them, teach that God is both the energizing force behind the Big Bang and the director of evolutionary process.
The Big Bang/ billions of years view results in a philosophy of moral relativism because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are we going to become something else – maybe divine supermen, god-men, super robots or cosmic beings – but nothing can be said about transgender, 'gay,' and lesbianism since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter generated by the inexplicable explosion of a Cosmic Egg which may or may not involve a stumbling god shaped and molded by theologians who require Him to ignite the Big Bang.
Biomachines and Trousered Apes
With regard to man's inner person, his soul/spirit, if life arose from chemicals and then billions of years later man evolved from lower life-forms, then his rational nature, his soul, differs not qualitatively but only quantitatively from the beasts. Like beasts, man is not a person but a creature of the earth. Like them he has no spirit – free will, higher mental faculties, and conscience. He is a fleshy androgynous robot or hominid whose brain is organized by the genome and the genome shaped by natural selection.
The denial of the literal and historic meaning of the Genesis account is foundationally the result of imposing neo-pagan and mystical pantheist evolutionary cosmologies (i.e., Big Bang) upon the Bible.' Thus, it has baneful consequences which don't just stop with Genesis, but adversely affect the entirety of Scripture and the entirety of Western and American society too. The atheist Frank Zindler enthusiastically agrees:
"The most devastating thing that biology did to Christianity was the discovery of biological evolution. Now that we know that Adam and Eve never were real people the central myth of Christianity is destroyed. If there never was an Adam and Eve, there never was an original sin. If there never was an original sin there is no need of salvation. If there is no need of salvation there is no need of a savior. And I submit that puts Jesus...into the ranks of the unemployed. I think evolution absolutely is the death knell of Christianity." ("Atheism vs. Christianity," 1996, Lita Cosner, creation.com, June 13, 2013)
For many long years, thoughtful, concerned people have been pointing to the connections between evolutionary thinking and the spreading epidemic of narcissism, moral insanity, hatred, violence, despair, paranoia, madness, dark fantasies, psychosis and other spiritual pathologies together with the breakup of the family, the abortion of 60,000,000+ unborn, the subversion and perversion of children, and the relentlessly rising tide of psychiatric drug and porn use, crime, decadence, homicide and suicide in the 'evolutionized' West.
As Zindler rightly concludes, evolution is the death knell of Christianity, hence the death knell of the uniquely radical definition of man as person because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons. From this it follows that evolution is also the death knell of our Constitutional Republic since our inalienable (God given) rights are for persons, not trousered apes or biomachines.
As the socially destructive consequences of evolution, moral relativism and unfettered sin reverberate throughout the church and society our age increasingly becomes an age of idolatrous worship of self, defiance against God and a spreading tyranny of evil as self-idolaters increasingly demand the sacrifice of other people, their children, property, rights and even their lives on altars of self-gratification.
