The Purposeful Killing of Human Life

The Purposeful Killing of Human Life

ProLifeCorner – 2-2-2017 – by Chris Munda – Euthanasia goes by other names, for example, mercy killing, assisted suicide, easy death, etc..  You can call it whatever name you like, but it still means only one thing-the purposeful killing of a human life.

We are living in a time when human life has been cheapened so much that animals are treated with more care and respect than human beings.  It has, for quite some time, been seriously discussed how older, terminally ill, or chronically ill patients should die to save resources for the young and strong.  Is this the kind of world in which we want to live?  Should Grandpa be put down like a dog because he has arthritis and can’t get around as fast as he did in the past?  How about getting rid of Grandma because she’s too weak to stand at the stove for hours cooking everyone’s favorite foods?  Or what about a child or young adult with MS?  Do they deserve to die because they have an illness or handicap?

One only has to hear the inspiring life story of Mark Pickup, a great hero in the pro-life movement.  “Assisted Suicide As A Matter of Course”.Mark is but one of many people who suffer from a debilitating disease, but he has shown the world great courage, strength, and has shared many great writings with all of us.  Those who favor euthanasia would suggest he is really not useful to society.  What rubbish!!  Mark has given hope and inspiration to so many people who are handicapped in some way.  He is a role model to all of us.

Are You Born Again? Are You Saved?

Are You Born Again? Are You saved?

ProLifeCorner – Frank Munda-  Many of us have heard, or used the terms “are you born again”, or “are you saved”, and “have you accepted Christ as your personal Lord and Savior”? When we hear these terms or even use them ourselves, do we really think about what it means?  If I had a group of Evangelicals, Lutherans, Pentecostals, Presbyterians, Catholics, etc. and ask the above questions, I more than likely would get different interpretations within each one of these groups. Christianity should not be a democracy where we get a consensus of the majority and therefore that is the truth, at least at that moment and within that particular group.

The purpose of this article is not to convert you, the reader, to any particular Christian belief. I do however believe that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ intended for us to be one. The unfortunate reality is we are not “one”, and that is something that you, myself, or anyone else can possibly  change. That peace, that unity, can only come through the power of the Holy Spirit and I long for that day. In the meantime, through our brokenness, through our division, can we at least build upon what we do agree on? That is, we love the teachings of Jesus Christ and we want to build our lives around those teachings. Continue reading
