House of Representatives—what the Republicans in the House must do to TAKE BACK the NATION

I wrote during the 2008 election (and even before that election) that the three most important political issues were:

1) Stopping the MURDER of unborn babies.

2) Stopping the homosexual agenda and reversing the ridiculous concept that a particular sinful, immoral behavior—homosexual behavior—was somehow a “civil right” to be protected by governments.

3) Stopping an out of control federal judiciary from rewriting the U.S. Constitution through judicial fiat.

The major problem with the American society and our governments is that we have and are continuing to disregard GOD’S will and GOD established values and morality. We have insanely substituted our humanist, immoral, sinful desires as we seek instant human gratification instead pleasing the CREATOR of the universe. Of course, this rejection of GOD and elevation of self has been a constant problem throughout human history.

“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

Therefore, God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, MURDER (my capitalization—my addition), strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents, they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also APPROVE (my capitalization—my addition) of those who practice them.” Romans 1: 18-32 (NIV)

Thus, our desire to recklessly spend the nation into oblivion is a symptom of the problem. It is not the problem per se. Therefore, the House of Representatives must attack the problem and not just the symptoms. Those Republicans who claim we must concentrate on economic issues without addressing moral values are absolutely wrong. A cancer is ended when the cancer itself is attacked successfully. Attacking the symptoms only will not end the cancer.

The MURDER of unborn babies was obscenely allowed by an unjust, humanistic Supreme Court decision—Roe vs. Wade (January, 1973). It is not necessary to wait for a reversal of that Supreme Court decision to end the barbaric, sinful practice of MURDERING our unborn children. Congress has the authority to end this GOD condemned act of MURDER.

The House of Representatives must take the lead as the Senate is still controlled, for the moment, by a political party which advocates MURDER as a legal action. There are at least three actions the House of Representatives should begin and complete.

1) End all federal funding, for whatever purpose, for all organizations that directly or indirectly participate in the sin of MURDERING the unborn. Any money going to Planned MURDERHOOD and similar organizations should not occur even if not specifically for MURDER purposes. Any money provided by governments is blood money since such funds provided by we the people financially help organizations that MURDER the innocent. Thus, we are, even when we desire not to be, financially approving of those who practice MURDER.

2) The House of Representatives must pass a law that defines life as beginning at conception. Thus, once conception occurs, every baby is protected by the laws of the United States and by the United States Constitution. The majority opinion of Roe vs. Wade stated that the Court did not know when life begins. And thus, they obscenely blundered on the side of death and MURDER. Congress can and should correct that blunder.

Since the Congress can expect immediate court challenges to such a law, the House of Representatives should also:

3) Pass a Constitutional Amendment that states emphatically that life begins at conception and that every human life, no matter at what stage of development, is fully protected by the laws of the United States and by the United States Constitution. By definition, a Constitutional Amendment is constitutional and, therefore, the courts are legally removed from the equation.

Will any of these three actions survive in the Senate and, if so, survive a veto from the President? Defunding of MURDEROUS organizations can certainly occur. If the House of Representatives does not provide the funds, legally the funding is ended. It is not necessary for the Senate to concur and there is no specific law for the President to veto. A law defining life as beginning at concept will be difficult to pass in the Senate but not impossible. Senators up for reelection in 2012 may not want that blood stain on their voting record and support the law while relying on the President to veto it.

Either way, we will have tried to change the obscene practice of MURDERING unborn babies and will have a campaign issue for the 2012 election. Voters do not know how one of their elected Representatives will vote until he/she has actually voted. Put their feet to the fire! Make them vote on the issue! (By the way, the President does not have the authority to veto a proposed Constitutional Amendment.)

Lately, I have been using the following Biblical quote: “WOE TO THOSE WHO CALL EVIL GOOD AND GOOD EVIL” Isaiah 5: 20a (“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” Isaiah 5: 20) Is there anything more EVIL than MURDERING innocent unborn babies? Is MURDERING innocent unborn babies now considered GOOD? Have we become that EVIL of a society? We desperately need to reverse this EVIL for the sake of the nation! Otherwise, is there any doubt that woe is us? It is past time to TAKE BACK the NATION and RETURN to GOD’S will and HIS true values!
