There are many women today that still see a war against women and there are those who do not. Personally the war that I believe quite a few women perceives is a war within herself. Women now have a right to vote, have a right to be heard, have a right to be whoever and go wherever they want to go. I do believe there are many today who truly seek freedom to commit sin freely (and they know it) and who they are really trying to change is "us".
In a country whose foundation is embedded with Christian values--those who do not believe in such values are constantly at war with those values. There seems to be a desire to be rid of the foundational norms such as marriage between a man and a woman, honoring and protecting life even in the womb, and most importantly the acknowledgment of God.
Here is a New York Times interview that gives a glimpse of what some women think on the so called "war on women." Very interesting indeed and I am rather struck at the fervency some women feels for the procedure which ironically they see as their freedom at a price of the loss of human life--at its most innocent state. But this happens more often than not because there is a war within them and if there is no Counselor within then sadly self will win at the price of a child.
Strange how there are laws that would move mountains to protect animals and their habitats-- yet if you are a human the place where your life starts is the most dangerous habitat of all. Makes one pause and think that the war truly is a war on silencing "us" so that evil can be perceived as acceptable and even to the point of helpful. Many would rather help find a kitten or a puppy a home than a babe a parent willing to save its life and adopt. The most important aspect is who does it really matter to? There will be a reality check coming and the God of the Universe, the God who watched the birth of this nation is looking at America today. He is watching and He will be judging...I hope you can see truth and be ready and may He have mercy ...
We are grateful for the fact that Dawn Wildman (one of our friends of City on a Hill) was a part of the discussion--her perspectives are always--superb!
Benjamin Franklin--one of our great Founders had this to say:
Benjamin Franklin's Prayer
In the beginning of the Contest with G. Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the divine protection.- Our prayers, Sir, were heard, graciously answered....
I see of this truth- that God Governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings, that "except the Lord build the House they labour in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better, than the Builders of Babel...
I therefore beg leave to move- henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on our deliberations, be held in this Assembly every morning before we proceed to business...
By the way--it is never too late to pray and ask Him for help for God is able!
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
And remember the priceless value in the Word of God
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.
