A Religion of Convenience

"Far to many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health in child birth. All the laws we passed don't count for much if they're not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice, not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will and deep-seated cultural codes and religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed. (Cheers)"

That was an excerpt from a political speech. The speaker was addressing a large group of women. One does not have to think too hard to figure out who said it. Before we get into all that though, I would like you to take a look at a few key phrases in the above quote.

"Reproductive health" is the latest term the left is using to describe abortion. It sounds so nice. Everyone should be in favor of reproductive health for women, right? Let's re-read that first sentence, only using "abortion" instead of "reproductive health."

"Far to many women are still denied critical access to abortion in child birth."

Sounds a little different. But what IS abortion anyway? It is the termination, killing, of babies, still in the womb. Let's read it again, substituting THAT definition.

"Far to many women are still denied critical access to the killing of their babies in child birth."

Is it just me? Or does that sound morally wrong?

The speaker of the opening quote was Hillary Clinton. She was talking about Obamacare and the Hobby Lobby case where Hobby Lobby sued the U.S. government because providing abortifatient drugs was against the company's religious beliefs. The case went to the Supreme Court where Hobby Lobby won. Praise God!

This speech was given AFTER the Supreme Court ruled. Hillary wants the law she and Obama created to be enforced despite the courts ruling. Interesting. But that's not the scariest sentence in her speech. Read the last sentence.

"deep-seated cultural codes and religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed."

Hillary Clinton thinks our religious beliefs against abortion must be changed. How do you suppose she will do that? How will she change our religious beliefs? And why?!?

I don't want to be an alarmist, shouting "Fire!" in a crowded theater, but . . . DO NOT VOTE FOR THIS WOMAN, PLEASE!!!!

Hillary Clinton's Keynote Address - Women In The World Summit

(The comments in this blog are at the 8:27 mark in her speech)

There was a time in the world's history when a government felt that a religion's opinions needed to be changed . . . and millions of lives were lost in the process.

Most Bible-believing Christians will tell you that we are living in the last days. Scripture tells us that these times will increase in their lawlessness and ultimately we Christians will be cut out of the herd and persecuted because of our beliefs. Eventually we will be killed because of our faith. Did I say "eventually?" People are already losing their heads overseas because of their faith in Jesus. People are dying HERE for the same reason.

Pastors are being told not to speak out against homosexuality in their sermons or they will be charged with a hate crime. My friends, this is all prophesied in the Bible. It should not surprise us.

Thuth be told, it would not surprise me if Hillary Clinton won the presidency in 2016. The same country that elected its first black president could very well elect its first woman president. We like to be trend setters. That seems to be more important to us as a nation than religious liberty of the killing of babies for convenience sake. It's all about us and not about God. We seem to prefer convenience and selfishness over morality.

If Hillary gets elected and she then decides to “get religious people to change their minds,” what shall we "religious people" do? Will we obey the law she will want enforced despite the Supreme Courts ruling,even thoughwe would be disobeying the God we profess faith our faith and hope in? All this in favor of complying with HER beliefs?

“Then he said to them, “Therefore render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's.” - Matthew 22:21

I have a question for you. Who do you belong to? WHOSE are you? Are you an American? Or are you a Christian? You probably would like to answer, “I am both.” Well, I am telling you today that, one day, we WILL have to make a choice in that regard. We will have to decide whom we are going to serve. Will we “pledge allegiance to the republic” or will we obey our God . . . "one nation, under His authority?" I know how I will chose. Do you?

“15 And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve," - Joshua 24:15

We are living in the last days. Life will be getting tougher for all of us but especially for those of us who believe in Jesus. We must take heart because Jesus has overcome the world and so shall we, through are faith in Christ.

We make decisions every day. Do we base them in faith? Or do we practice "a religion of convenience?" Do we obey our governments laws when they specifically conflict with God's?

It is time, my friends, to make a decision . . . and choose today whom we will serve.
