Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Horrific Beyond Belief: Aborted Babies Burned to Heat Hospitals

They built the high places of Baal that are in the valley of Ben-hinnom to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I had not commanded them nor had it entered My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin. (Jeremiah 32:35 NASB)

I owe several of my Facebook friends an apology. When you posted status updates about aborted babies burned to produce electricity in order to power hospitals, I rolled my eyes. I assumed that you had fallen for another Facebook urban legend and that you had erred in not checking your sources. The story was too outrageous to be true.

But I was wrong.

As The Telegraph reported yesterday,

"The remains of more than 15,000 babies were incinerated as 'clinical waste' by hospitals in Britain with some used in 'waste to energy' plants."

There has, apparently, been significant public outcry in Britain over this practice. But, as Dr. Albert Mohler reminded listeners this morning on The Briefing webcast, there is a fundamental inconsistency in a worldview that would allow killing babies to be considered acceptable but certain methods of cremating their remains to be considered unacceptable.

This should remind Christians that we cannot take our cues on right and wrong from this utterly-confused world. Sinners can justify the most terrible sins- even murder- not allowing their consciences to kick in until way too late. We must call out sin for what it is and call all people to Christ, the only Savior from sin, death, and Hell.
