He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed.
God forgive us for allowing the taking of an innocent human life in this, the time of 'right-to-die'. As our society continues to slide into this culture of death that our self-centered thinking society is embracing in ever increasing numbers, the words of Christ, who said, 'Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do'. That is my own paraphrase on the verse as I don't have a Bible handy for the exact reference.
But I think we do know what we are doing and we think it is ok. Just think of all the arguments used that brought Terri to such an end, or of the many and varied arguments for the right to abort. The end result of which is that an innocent human being is killed via the will and desire of someone else.
Maybe in the sense that our thinking is so deluded it can be said that we don't know what we are doing. But any way you look at it, we are guilty of cheapening life so that we can live as we wish.
On Reurrection Sunday, may it be that more eyes are open to the truth of this and repentance be the way of the day.
The Lord Jesus Christ did not die in vain, and Terri will not die in vain, any more than her lving life in her condition was of no value, regardless of what any judge, lawyer, or right to die group says.
