“There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.” – Arthur Conan Doyle
We are compelled as people to believe the best in others. We always give people the benefit of the doubt, thinking that no matter how wrong-headed their ideas, a good soul must lie underneath. We believe that it is the branches that become twisted, not the roots. It is because of this foolishness that we become desensitized to evil. We are so accustomed to assuming good intentions, that when evil—which has been in front of us the whole time—appears, we are shocked.
This apparent inability to recognize evil has hindered us in many ways. As conservatives, we have become completely blinded to the severity, and the disgusting nature of abortion. We debate it as if it is just another thing we feel passionate about. But the truth is that it is evil. What is being done to these children is evil. And when we glom abortion in with all the other issues, we lose our understanding of that. For example, recently, two “scholars” published an essay about the possible merits of “post-birth abortion.” Yes, merits. These men wrote that, in some cases, post-birth abortion could be seen as justifiable. They also attempt to justify the use of the term “post-birth,” rather than “infanticide.”
“There are now people seriously arguing for abortion AFTER BIRTH.”

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
