President Approves More Killings

President Obama recently signed an executive order reversing President Bush’s ban on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. This is a tragic mistake and great sin, for in doing so, the President is using your tax dollars and mine to murder thousands of human beings.

There was a very interesting discussion of what is at stake here on the Albert Mohler radio program in the last week or so. You can find the link here. (Just today he also discussed the fetus as an organ factory. I haven't heard this one yet, but you can find the link here.) I would strongly encourage every one of you to take the time to listen to these programs. It’s an hour’s commitment but worth it. It helped me to grasp in a much better way what is taking place on this issue. It’s time for us to learn as much as we can about this and take a stand as Christians against this barbarism.

I would also refer you to my son’s blog on this topic. He is a much better writer than I and helps us to put these things in better focus. You can find his article here.

Finally, I would recommend the book, “How to be a Christian in a Brave New World” by Joni Eareckson Tada & Nigel M. De S. Cameron. This book will help you understand some of the newer bio-medical technologies such as cloning from a biblical point of view. Buy it and read it.

As men who want to be faithful, let’s start taking a stand on this issue by praying fervently for our country and its leaders, by letting our voices be known to our representatives, and informing ourselves and then our friends and families as to why these practices must be stopped.

“O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments, we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments.” Daniel 9:4-5
