GOD AND THE INNOCENT - OUR NATION IS UNDER BLOOD GUILT
In their book “Their Blood Cries Out” Troy Newman and Cheryl Sullenger write,
“Bloodguilt. Over 41,600,000 lives testify against us individually, as a
community, as a Church, and as a nation. Our complicity in the crime of murder
is inescapable. It is clear what price needs to be paid for the shedding of innocent
blood and equally clear that the price has not been paid
either by civil justice, by His people's trust in Christ¹s innocent blood for
payment on this score, or by God exacting justice through judgment. The voice of
innocent blood cries out to God continually for vengeance. Knowing this, we can
never again read the Scriptures without being reminded that we stand in danger
of God¹s judgment for our culpability in the shedding of innocent blood.”
Man has value - Genesis 1:25 "And God created man in His own image...God is intimately involved with the preborn - Psalm 139: 13-14 "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;" God cares for the born and unborn even sending his own son, Christ, to die for our sins. We have a unique position in His creation. - John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life."
God has a special love for children - Psalm 127:3 "Behold, children are a gift of the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward."
God is concerned about man's sin and his need for forgiveness - I John 1:9 "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
God is concerned about the injured, the poor and heavy laden - The good Samaritan presents to Christians a challenge to help rid our land of the legal killing of over 1,000,000 innocent preborn a year.
Blood guilt is over the land - Psalm 106:37-38 "They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons, and shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with the blood."
God calls for repentance - 2 Chronicles 7:14 "if my people who are called by my name humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
This is the church age and the Body of Christ, the Church, is not without guilt since innocent children are legally being killed in America.- Isaiah 1:15 "'So when you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide My eyes from you, yes, even though you multiply prayers, I will not listen. Your hands are covered with blood."
Deuteronomy 21:7-9 "and they shall answer and say, Our hands have not shed this blood, nor did our eyes see it. Forgive Thy people Israel whom Thou hast redeemed, O Lord, and do not place the guilt of innocent blood in the midst of Thy people Israel." And the blood shall be forgiven them. So you shall remove the guilt of innocent blood from your midst, when you do what is right in the eyes of the Lord."
H.A. “Bud” Reeves, President, SOHLNET.org, Sanctity of Human Life Network, Inc. writes, “Today, child killing by abortion is taking place in buildings in our community, in the shadows of nearby churches. It is rare that an American pastor or church decides to take truth and mercy to these abortion mills. WHY? Are not the little boys and girls in the womb our neighbors? Are we not much like the Priest and the Levite who walked across the street to pass by the man who was bleeding after having been robbed and beaten on his way to Jericho? Why is it today the religious leaders are still walking by? They will have no excuse. If we are to see revival and restoration, the Christian Church must cry out in repentance and humility and then begin ministry at the abortion mills.”
