Evil Revealed



Here is a bumper sticker you don't see everyday, thanks be to God. I did see it today and took a pic with my phone.

It is of course beyond our comprehension that someone would rejoice so in the murder of children, but also express such love for their murderers. This is course is no love at all. This is nothing but Evil.

"For the commandments, 'You shall not commit adultery,' 'You shall not murder,' 'You shall not steal,' 'You shall not bear false witness,' 'You shall not covet,' and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed" Romans 13:9-11.

"The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable, but the mouth of the wicked what is perverse" Proverbs 10:32.

Do you ever get the feeling you're living in Sodom or Gomorrah?

I do.

The Rev. BT Ball said...

Sure, but oh the comfort of Romans 13:11. And remember that the Lord will have His vengeance on the Last Day, "Depart from me ye cursed into everlasting fire..."

Until then, I am thankful for the Holy House where I have been put to serve. The Holy ones gathering on the Lord's day gives me such joy and thankfulness.

So dear Doctor, get to the Divine Service and be surrounded by the great cloud of witnesses.

Amen!

What did people blog about before there were camera phones? Good work, Ball. Both of those pictures left me slack-jawed and dumbfounded.

I'm afraid that we are much worse than Sodom and Gomorrah. Certainly our sexual sins are every bit a match for theirs, as is our shallow materialism and lack of hospitality, but our murders far exceed anything they could have ever dreamed up in their twisted minds. Not only have we slaughtered nearly 50 million babies out of convenience so as to allow us to continue to practice our sexual license without dealing with its natural consequence (and purpose), but we have put hundreds of thousands of innocent embryos in the freezer as part of our practice of "fabricat[ing]" our "real children . . . by vile arts in a secret place", are make plans to use such frozen, unwanted human embryos for our equally vile arts in the areas of medical research and treatment, are denying nutrition and hydration (our sanitized terms for food and water) in our efforts to give a peaceful end to the terminally ill (our sanitized words for murdering those who are no longer useful to us), and . . . I could go on, but that's enough.

I fear that "it will be more tolerable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom than for" us.

GL-
rejoice that your sins are forgiven and at the last day you will stand amongst the sheep of our Blessed Lord's fold. Fear God, yes, and rejoice that the LORD of Hosts is with you and bore your sins at Calvary. If we be guilty for not speaking and not acting to end the murder of so many, let us confess such to our Lord. As His dear children, let us speak and confess His Word, with no fear of eternal judgment for Christ has set us free. Let the Lord do with those who reject Him now as He will.

Can you give me some ideas of what you would have said to the owner of the car had you seen him/her?
I've had a few conversations w/those w/ pro-abortion logos, but never one like that!

Hi!! I am a Catholic, Latin Rite, and I googled your website as part of research I am conducting about abortion. I was shocked and very saddened to see the photo of the bunper sticker. I've never seen one of those before and I hope I never see one in person because, in all honesty, I would be tempted to take a black marker and put a line through the "heart." Why do human beings murder their own children? Why do some physicians (who are supposed to "do no harm") murder children? This is a sad, sad time for all Christians.

D.-
I actually thought about waiting around for the owner of the vehicle to come out of the store. I probably would have asked them the name of the abortion provider that I could pray for his repentance, that I loved him as well, and that such love requires him to be told that what he is doing is an evil against God and man, and if they would be so kind to take my name and phone number to him I would be glad to have a conversation someday.

glad you found us. Were catholic, Augustana Rite. Humans do this because we are conceived and born evil and are disposed to such evil deeds. You can read our confession of faith about this at this link.
