Sanctity of Life Month

Posted by Larry Miller on February 10, 2011 under Why | 3 Comments to Read

January was Santity of Life Month. The folks from the ManhattanDeclaration.org decided to hold a video contest to encourage people to get the word out about the abomination of abortion. They received a variety of entries… some really hit the nail on the head and got the eye-popping message across.

Below are a few of the entries that approach the subject from a variety of viewpoints. All are worth viewing.

    In ancient Israel, the pre-born human being was considered to be a person and, at birth, one-year old. The wisdom of Israel held that the value of the single life defined the value of the Twelve Tribes of Israel.

    History teaches that when the individual person is of expedient non-value, the value of the plural unit, the whole society, becomes regressive and expendable.

    Today, there are those who say, “Abortion is such a messy negative subject.” The American new age holocaust is what it is. Regardless of a sophisticated rationale it is a form of cannibalism – devouring one’s own kind – and has no place in a free humane society based on individual worth.

    If the individual is worth zero what will our Nation be worth? Isn’t the whole the sum value of the parts – the individuals who make it up?

    Is there any other kind of human? After all, isn’t every “group” merely a convenient verbalization about individuals?

    Ask any ten-year old, “If one equals zero what does twelve equal?”

    If each individual is worth zero what will society be worth? The consequences will accrue to each and every individual in our Country.

    Dear reader: Don’t YOU qualify as ‘an individual?’ Are YOU prepared to be weighed in the balances of your own choosing? The perverse cause produces the perverse effect. Obviously and sadly, it is already happening…

    “The fool foldeth his hands together and eateth his own flesh.” Ecclesiastes 4:5 Selah.

    Dear Trendy-One: Are there any questions about our Nation? YOUR future? How about arithmetic?

    P.S. The next step down? Assisted suicide.

    Carl V. “Sam” Lamb and I served side-by-side as rifle-squad
    leaders Fox Company, “Chesty” Puller’s 1st Marines, 1st Marine
    Division. He wrote a book about our experiences in the Korean
    conflict, 1950-1951. He included my remarks about an incident in
    which one of our people threatened to punch-out a fellow squad-
    leader who had black skin.

    THE LAST PARADE
    by Carl V. Lamb Page 296 (1951)

    James Fletcher Baxter

    Sam and I had a lot in common. We both resisted evil. After I
    got out of the hospital, ‘Big Jim’ Causey told of driving along
    in his police cruiser and hitting a black man in his head
    with his pistol. He thought it was funny how the guy sprawled
    into the street. When he made this comment we were in a card
    game. I didn’t say anything, but then he said he was going to
    kick the ____ out of Joe Goggins and I had heard enough.

    I said, “If you’re going to try that, you’ll have to go through
    me to get to him. I’m willing to give my life for a country
    that values each individual. If that isn’t true, I don’t want
    to fight for that country – but, it is true, so I’m not going
    to let you rob me of the very good reason I may lose my life
    tomorrow or next week. If you attack him, you attack me. I
    may lose, but I guarantee I will make it very expensive for
    you to get to him. Let me know what you decide.”

    He got up from our card game and said, “I’ll have to think
    about it.”

    I said, “Let me know. I’ll be here.”

    He came back a little later and said, “You’re right. I was
    wrong.” I thanked him for his manliness.

    Joe Goggins came to me later and thanked me. He had wet eyes.

    Shortly after the above event, Causey was sent home on a
    medical emergency for a family member. On the way, he
    made a stop at a Naval medical facility stateside and ran into
    my brother, Sgt. Howard “Barney” Baxter, 5th Marines, with
    Chosen Reservoir frost-bitten feet. My brother said Causey
    told him what had happened, and that it had “changed his life
    forever.” Never again would he do “the collective thing” of race
    abuse. He saw the value of each individual, regardless of race,
    station, or gender. He even forgave himself and became a worthy
    and honorable U.S. Marine.

    INDIVIDUAL VALUE – Gift of Y’shua JESUS
    by James Fletcher Baxter

    The Old World method of measuring human value was,
    and still is, by the group. Whether tribe, clan,
    city-state, color, ethnic, or gender, the Old
    World, ancient and modern, measures by the plural
    unit. Individuals had and have no value of them-
    selves but only as they were and are part of a
    collective.

    When Y’shua Jesus died on the cross, the veil of
    the Temple at the Holy of Holies parted from the
    top down. The individual believer in the congrega-
    tion had, for the first time, a face-to-face, one-
    on-one relation with his Creator. The Creator,
    Himself, had validated each individual for the
    first time.Thus, the Individual became the corner-
    stone for later human value measuring systems:
    socio-political, philosophical, religious, educa-
    tional, economic, etc., henceforth and forever.
    Western Civilization, America, English Law, civil
    Rights, the ‘democratic’ process, etc., all sprang
    from that single event. (Greco-Roman ‘democracies’
    were 95% slave throughout their entire histories.)
    Biblical principles are still today the foundation
    under Western Civilization and the American way of
    life.

    Many social systems attempt to borrow ideas of
    “democracy” without the basic premise in The Indi-
    vidual. Such a system is only superficially and
    temporarily ‘democratic.’ The cornerstone of the
    democratic process is The Individual and the
    cornerstone of the value of The Individual is
    Y’shua Jesus! It is not possible to have one with-
    out the other. There is only One Source – there is
    no other.

    It is additionally interesting to note that all
    value measuring systems are based on the single
    definitive unit of the system. Ex: Number, Time,
    Distance, Weight, Heat, Money, Angle, Volume, etc.

    Only humanism makes the abusive error of measuring
    human value by the plural unit and attempts to
    build social structures, relations, and institu-
    tions thereon. Such man-made systems can only be
    abusive and oppressive because in reality there
    are only individual persons. Groups or collectives
    are merely convenient verbalizations about indi-
    viduals. They are not reality.

    I have yet to see a ‘group.’ All I have ever seen
    are individuals.Have you ever seen a group – or is
    it a verbal convenience? Reality is only in the
    individual person. And, such a validation never
    derived from a human source without the initiative
    of the Creator. (The French Rationalists of the
    18th Century favored the fruit – but rejected the
    branch, tree, and root.)

    Today, wherever Y’shua Jesus is rejected, the
    group or collective is still the basic way of
    measuring human value – or human non-value.

    We thank the Lord God for revealing His validation
    of each individual person. We thank Him for creat-
    ing each person uniquely, in His image, and call-
    ing each one to a courageous ascension by Y’shua
    Jesus, who said, “I AM the Way…”

    Praise the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and
    His Son of Man, Y’shua Jesus.
