Abortion Ban, Humanism, and the Scripture

YIPPEE! LOOK AT THIS! Sign your name and support this with everything you've got!! This bill goes so far as to make abortion illegal except to save the life of the mother.

(Before I get totally lost in my rant, I would like to send you to the newest organization who is stepping up to the plate in the fight for our country, Regenerate Our Culture. This is the brainchild of the likes of Agent Tim, Spunky Jr., Mission3:6teen and SmartHomeschool. This new nucleus will be the new home of Square Talk and will house a magazine as well as a lot of other cool stuff. So, after you read my post and sign the petition supporting the abortion ban, head over there and check it out!)

Help us get 1,000,000 Names on the Petition to Governor Rounds!

Dear Travis,

A bill that would ban nearly all abortions in South Dakota and spark a challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision is heading to Governor Mike Rounds for his signature. Planned Parenthood, which operates the only clinic performing
abortions in South Dakota, has pledged to challenge the measure in court if Gov.
Rounds signs it into law.

Gov. Rounds' signature would mark the first time since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide that a state legislature has passed such a sweeping ban. The bill, known as H.B. 1215, makes abortion illegal except to save the life of the mother.

The bill was sponsored in the House by Rep. Roger Hunt, a Republican, and in the Senate by Sen. Julie Bartling, a Democrat. The bill states that "life begins at the
time of conception ..." and that "under the Constitution of South Dakota, a
pregnant mother and her unborn child ...each possess a natural and inalienable
right to life."

The legislators went through the proper legislative channels to pass the law, and did not depend on an activist judge to make law like the pro-abortion supporters do.

Urgent Action Needed!It is important that Gov. Rounds hears from pro-life Christians all across America. Please read and sign the urgent petition to South Dakota Governor Rounds. The petition includes a 'thank you' to the South Dakota House and Senate sponsors of the pro-life legislation.

Please forward this important alert to family and friends. More than 47 million abortions have been performed in the 33 years since the Roe v. Wade decision and this could signal new hope for the unborn child.

Guys, this is the chance of a lifetime.
How better to draw the line in the sand between right and wrong, the rule of law vs. the rule or judicial activist judges, and the rule of life over death? The people of South Dakota have thrown down the gantlet and have said with this action "We will not allow children to be slaughtered within our state". The line of right and wrong can clearly be seen, this is progress. The greatest threat to our nation at this time in our history is humanism, that is, "placing man in the place of God". The allowance of abortion is the clear branch of this evil root of thinking. How else can a mother justify murdering her innocent child then to place herself in the place of God and say "I will chose whether you will live or die". If we desire to bring our nation back to it One and Only, Great and Strong Foundation, we must defeat the vileness of humanism. It has been revealed to me just recently, that of all the battles Christians face in the modern political spectrum, the evil we are fighting at all fronts is humanism. This is the evil that says man was not created, this is the evil that says the founding fathers opinions no longer matter in constitutional questions, this is the evil that seduces voters to stay home from the polls and refuse to fight evil.

These are the man Paul spoke of in his second letter to Timothy when he said:

But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.
For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant,
revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable,
malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous,
reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a
form of godliness, although they have denied its power
; Avoid such men as
For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women
weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, always learning and never
able to come to the knowledge of the truth
. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed
Moses, so these {men} also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, rejected in
regard to the faith. But they will not make further progress; for their
folly will be obvious to all, just as Jannes's and Jambres's folly was

2 Timothy 3: 1-9

Can words describe any better the depravity our nation is slowly sinking deeper and deeper into? But be encouraged, for Paul continues...

2 Tim 3:10 ¶ Now you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith,
patience, love, perseverance, persecutions, {and} sufferings, such as happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium {and} at Lystra; what persecutions I endured, and out of
them all the Lord rescued me!

Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. But evil men and impostors will proceed {from bad} to worse, deceiving and being deceived. You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned {them,} and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

I solemnly charge {you} in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season {and} out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine;
but {wanting} to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves
teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

¶ For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the
time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.

2 Timothy 3:10-4:8

Now, we know the course set before us. We are to fulfill our God given role as the salt and light of the earth, by "Knowing the sacred writings" from the time we are a child, being ready in and out of season to teach, correct, reprove, and exhort the Truth. We are to be ready to receivpersecutionon and triblulation, for Christ is forever faithful and will not allow us into a trail that cannot be overcome through him.

Ahh, what glorious Scripture! Blessed be the name of the Lord!
