No More Passivity

Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Fifty years have gone by, and 63 million children have been sacrificed in America since Roe v Wade was passed. Though it was never law, we acted is if it was and we ignored God’s words beginning in Exodus 20. We placed the Supreme Court above the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and violated that First Commandment to have no other gods. Then we violated the 6th Commandment with impunity.

Do not murder. Exo 20:14 TLV

And then we violated this one equally.

If a man presumes to kill his neighbor with craftiness, you are to take him from My altar and put him to death. Exo 21:14 TLV

Now in a Post Roe America, this battle has gone state-by-state and as a nation we are splitting parallel to the North versus South of the Civil War, without a Mason-Dixon Line. Our lines are drawn at our state borders and I live in Colorado – a Roe Slave State where it is legal to murder a child at any time during a pregnancy, including partial birth abortion. The battle sits much closer to home now that it is away from Washington.

And if that is not enough, Colorado is now a Transgender Sanctuary State. If a child travels to Colorado from another state seeking “gender affirming care” (in reality anything but) they will not be sent home and family will not be notified.

One problem, and this is key. Transgender only exists in an imagination. As if dismembering our babies in the womb was not enough, now the Medical Industrial Complex (read that as profit margin) is wanting to dismember them after they are born and stop babies at the next step – transgendered children are left unable to reproduce.

That second text above Exodus 21:14 is perhaps the clearest description of our system of child sacrifice which we handily call abortion. That word is softer in our hearing, thank you to so much to social engineering through the use of language. If we had called it child sacrifice or murder, which it is, perhaps we would not have allowed it to go on so long.

Presumption is entirely present when appointments are made for either abortion or gender based destruction. These are not last minute thoughts emotionally led, but procedures with full intent to carry out their goals.

Where might we be today if we had called it child sacrifice?

Scripture thankfully also speaks to what we must do to purge our land from innocent bloodguilt.

So you shall purge the guilt of innocent blood from your midst, when you do what is right in the sight of the LORD. Deut 21:9 ESV

If you are ready to take on all the forces that are behind child sacrifice, whether through abortion or transgender mutilation, then begin to ask and answer this question as well:

Where might we be today when we openly call it lying and manipulating?

The Medical Industrial Complex that helped to engineer abortion (aka “Women’s Health Care”) is giving us “Gender Affirming Care” which is as entirely language distorted as abortion. We are born XX female or XY male and that is it. No amount of drugs, no amount of mutilating surgeries will ever alter that. Where the Medical Industrial Complex is guilty of euphemizing abortion, they are equally guilty of euphemizing transgender mutilation.

From the Washington Examiner:

The crux of the matter is this: People across the political spectrum have been persuaded to accept that there is a coherent category of people for whom sex is irrelevant and that this category of people is called “transgender” (or simply “trans”). Democrats on the whole support “rights for ‘transgender people,’” and Republicans on the whole oppose allowing sex-confused people to hijack sex-specific spaces. But regardless of whether or not a person supports or opposes “rights for ‘transgender people,’” that person probably believes that there is such a category of people. But there isn’t. “Trans” is a lie. It is a lie as big as the lie that the emperor is wearing clothes. He isn’t wearing clothes. He’s naked. He’s just too arrogant to acknowledge it, and everyone around him is too cowed to say so.” (You may access the entire article at this URL)

The response we must have is no excuses, no reasons, no alternatives.

The only response we can have is to unify to fight for the lives of our children.

I don’t care what you call yourself, as in a denomination or a church, or if you keep Sunday or Saturday or whatever else you may do different from others. That does not matter. What matters is our children and holding the Medical Industrial Complex, which includes our government, responsible for their actions. If you believe we cannot unify around the sin of child sacrifice and child mutilation and admit our guilt together and come with repentance and end the shedding of innocent blood whether it takes a life or a future, regardless of our cultural differences, read no further. You have much work to do with yourself first.

Listen to Paul:

I say this because you are each saying, “I follow Paul,” or “I follow Apollos,” or “I follow Kefa,” or “I follow Messiah.” Has Messiah been divided? Paul wasn’t crucified for you, was he? Or were you immersed into the name of Paul? 1 Cor 1:12 – 13 TLV

We tend to call it “Inter-faith” but that is wrong. We hold the same Bible, we believe in the One Messiah. We have cultural differences in how we look at the one unalterable Word of God.

We differ in how we hold what we call worship. Do I lift my hands or not? Do I kneel? What is the order of our service? Do we have coffee in the foyer? Is it a foyer or a lobby? What day(s) do we meet? And on, and on, and on.

And please do not write to me – I do not have the time or the heart to argue petty differences. These are cultural differences even if we like to say “Inter-faith.” A Hindu in India is another faith, my Baptist friend is not. He and I come from different cultural expressions of our one faith.

Consider these texts, one from the “New” and one from the “Old” (although our God is timeless).

There is one body and one Spirit, even as you also were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, the One above all and through all and in you all. Eph 4 -6 LITV

As for the congregation, there shall be one statute both for you and for the alien that lives with you, a never ending statute throughout your generations; as you are, so shall the alien be before Yehovah. Num 15:15 LITV

All are treated alike. Before God there are no divisions, no denominations, no movements but only individuals who either love him by loving Jesus aka Yeshua, and by keeping his commandments or rejecting his commandments, which incidentally he likens to hating him (Exodus 20:5 – 6)

There must be a change of heart, a turning around. If we believe that we can continue to spill innocent blood, however removed we might be from the abortion procedure itself, or a future life ending transgender procedure, and remain and continue to call ourselves Christian however you have decided to say it, then we are deluding ourselves.

For “and remain a Christian” try substituting “and remain a Messianic” or “and remain a Lutheran” or “and remain a Roman Catholic” or “and remain an Evangelical” or whatever you want to put into this context. The name you use does not matter, what matters is this:

And when you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you. Yea, when you multiply prayer, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood. Isa 1:15 LITV

This was written to “the daughter of Zion” in verse 8 but addressed to the “rulers of Sodom” and the “People of Gomorrah” because the actions of Judah and Jerusalem were no different than those who had been overthrown and destroyed for sin. The name did not matter, the only thing that mattered was what had been done.

How to enter this battle for lives.

Are you ready to take on the rulers, authorities, powers, dominions, principalities or any other term used for the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places?

This is not a light calling. This is however the right calling.

We begin with “Repent for the Kingdom of God is at Hand!”

What drives us forward is to live out the whole Bible – The Wholly Bible, from cover to cover by doing justice, not just talking justice; loving mercy, not just studying mercy in comfortable and agreeable Bible studies and walking humbly with our God, not talking about how that might look (Micah 6:8).

We will bring justice to the fatherless and help to the helpless by stopping the doing of evil and the learning of how to do good. We will reprove the oppressors who are becoming wealthy off the slaughter of innocents (Isaiah 1: 16-17) and the physical alteration of our children. Our desire is to confront our culture by practicing pure and undefiled religion: to look after the orphaned (read fatherless – where are the fathers who should be protecting their sons and daughters rather than swallowing these cultural illusions and lies) and widows (read husbandless) in their affliction, and to keep ourselves unstained by the world (James 1:27).

We are not fighting other people although it may look that way. We are battling the spiritual forces of wickedness who inhabit the heavenly realms (Ephesians 6:12). Our weapons are not the weapons of the world system – we have weapons much more powerful than theirs that they do not likely know we have.

For the weapons of our warfare are not those of the world. Instead, they have the power of God to demolish fortresses. We tear down arguments and every proud obstacle that is raised against the knowledge of God, taking every thought captive in order to obey the Messiah. 2 Cor 10:4-5 ISV

The only way to defeat the rulers, authorities, powers, dominions and every other title in their realm, and end child sacrifice and child mutilation in America is to come together in the unity of repentance.

We are all guilty of the blood that has been shed for the past 50 years. We are all guilty of standing by while the powerful but godless media with their beloved Medical Industrial Complex, continue to push child sacrifice in either form as “Health Care” and “Affirming Care.” This happened while we fought one another over cultural differences rather than fighting the spirit behind this sin. When we acknowledge our sin of infighting and not unifying in saving our sons and daughters, and come together “to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word” (Heb 12:24) – the sacrifice of our One Lord – we will begin to see the end of these holocausts.

Our battle cry is “This starts with me.”

Don’t wait to gather others, begin by repenting on your own, alone if need be. The spiritual forces of wickedness hate true repentance for they have nothing to offer as a counter attack. Let the Spirit of the Living God lead you, use words from your own spiritual culture if needed. Those words are true of all of us. Then align with Bound2TRUTH and make your repentance public.

And may God richly bless you as you begin to take on both of these American Holocausts the only way they will be defeated. Through true repentance and the preaching of the one Gospel.
