Your neighbor’s life at stake

A senior director of Planned Parenthood was caught on tape explaining how abortion doctors took care to preserve organs of children they were aborting, in order to take advantage of a high market demand. Late-term abortions are sought in order to harvest the organs.

Because of such heinous acts, the USA is a godless country, where such horrors are tolerated and promoted. God will judge it for this and other injustices.

You must not stand idly by when your neighbor’s life is at stake. I am the Lord.
Leviticus 19.16b NET

Action in order to preserve life is a principle that covers every covenant, an expression of the divine creation of man, whose existence is the whole reason for the universe. Failure to act denies the divine purpose. Not for nothing does the Lord follow up the statement with a declaration of who he is.

Christians must do what they can in this world to preserve and promote life. More than that, they must see how this principle applies not only to physical life, but spiritual.

We  have been given the Great Commission, the task of proclaiming the Good News to all mankind. That eternity is at stake declares how much greater is this responsibility. Will we stand idly by when our neighbor’s soul is at stake?

J. Randal Matheny
