WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU STOP BELIEVING IN GOD? by Joseph Farah for WND
Joseph Farah thanks progressive politicians for showing us their black hearts
“When people stop believing in God, they don’t believe in nothing – they believe in anything.” – G.K. Chesterton
“In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” – Judges 21:25
Maybe we all owe New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam a debt of gratitude for awakening the nation to the coarseness and darkness of our collective American hearts.
Cuomo led his state’s effort to legalize the termination of unborn babies’ lives through the very last stages of pregnancy. But that wasn’t all. The night the Reproductive Health Act was signed into law, Cuomo lit up in pink the spire of Freedom Tower, the building erected in lower Manhattan where the Twin Towers once stood, in celebration of the occasion.
Just after that shamelessly ghoulish experience, Northam, a pediatrician supporting similar legislation in his own state, talked candidly on a radio show about how infants who somehow made it through the late-term abortion gauntlet would be permitted to die of neglect, if that is what the mother and abortionist decided.
Maybe America needed the moral shock treatment. Or maybe Western Civilization is just slouching back to Sodom and Gomorrah.
History shows us the practice of infanticide is not unusual. It was the rule, not the exception, in the empires of Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome. It was an abomination even found in ancient Israel, when people – including King Solomon himself – ritually sacrificed their children to the fiery furnace idols of Baal, Chemosh, Molech, Dagon and Ashtoreth.
In Jeremiah 32:35, God expresses a kind of divine exasperation over this monstrous betrayal of His holiness and His own imagination: “And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.”
Infanticide remained prevalent throughout the pagan world until the dawn of Christianity. But today we’re living amongst a generation that knows not Jesus – and things are getting worse.
