Hebrews 12 speaks of Christians as strangers and exiles on this earth. Always a minority.
This became clear yesterday when ELCA parishioner and late-term abortionist George Tiller won a major victory after contributing hundreds of thousands of dollars to oust a pro-life attorney general in Kansas who was fishing around his hellish “business” for evidence that he was doing late-term abortions under false pretenses. Such is justice on earth that murderers like Tiller run loose.
I don’t believe that late-term abortions are more vicious than any other abortion. In fact, I think(?) I’d prefer to have pincers jammed in the back of my neck and my brains sucked out rather than being scalded to death in saline as has happened to tens of millions of our unborn fellow citizens. However, it surely says something that consciences aren’t even pricked by a fully developed baby who may be days away from birth.
And yet we can be comforted:
Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers! For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. -Ps 37:1-3
He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. -Rom 2:6-8
