“I Once Was Blind”

What Have They Done?

What have unborn, precious, living babies done to deserve death? More than that, a painful and torturous death?

Yesterday I was thinking about the fact that the crucifixion of Jesus was the most evil event in history. As I thought about this, I wondered what other evils could be compared with the cross of Christ.

While Christians should see the supremacy of Christ in this discussion, there are other evils for which some might argue. While genocide in general or particular could vie for second most evil, I would argue that abortion, both in general and every single murder of an innocent child in particular, occupies that spot.

What makes Jesus Christ and Him crucified the greatest evil ever is that He did not deserve to die, much less to be publically shamed and brutally murdered as He was. Likewise, aborted babies do not deserve to die. If you think of abortion as a clean, cut and dry process, YouTube Gianna Jessen and listen to her talk passionately about saline abortions, one of which was supposed to end her life before she left her mother’s womb. As she says, saline abortions are intended to burn the unborn human being both inside and out and thereby end his or her life.

I love animals, but it is tragic that there are probably people who advocate protecting animals with one breath and support the burning alive of unborn humans with the next.

It is more tragic that millions of Americans view abortion as nothing more than an issue, while millions upon millions upon millions of innocent little bundles of blood and guts and brains and nerves and arms and legs and fingers and toes and potential are murdered, deprived of the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness by parents and voters and legislators who are supposed to defend the defenseless. To the tune that the man who fails on this issue worse than any candidate before him could be given the highest elected office in the world.

While abortion and genocide victims share the undeserved aspect with the evil of the murder of the Messiah, there was far more evil in the death of Jesus. This is because, in addition to not deserving to die, Jesus also deserved to live more than anyone else ever has or ever will. More than anyone else, He deserved to be honored and thanked and praised and cherised and loved.

Yet He was shamed and cursed and despised and rejected and crucified. Praise God that Christ Jesus our Lord “humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross” (Philippians 2:8) “for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4), and that He appeared to more than five hundred men (1 Corinthians 15:6), and He ascended to the right hand of the Father in heaven until His enemies are subdued under His feet (Psalm 110:1)..
