“Stanzas on Freedom"
Men! whose boast it is that ye
Come of fathers brave and free,
If there breathe on earth a slave,
Are ye truly free and brave?
If ye do not feel the chain,
When it works a brother’s pain,
Are ye not base slaves indeed,
Slaves unworthy to be freed?
Women! who shall one day bear,
Sons to breathe New England air,
If ye hear, without a blush,
Deeds to make the roused blood rush
Like red lava through your veins,
For your sisters now in chains-
Answer! are ye fit to be
Mothers of the brave and free?
Is true Freedom but to break
Fetters for our own dear sake,
And, with leathem hearts, forget
That we owe mankind a debt?
No! true Freedom is to share
All the chains our brothers wear,
And, with heart and hand, to be
Earnest to make others free!
They are slaves who fear to speak
For the fallen and the weak;
They are slaves who will not choose
Hatred, scoffing, and abuse,
Rather than in silence shrink
From the truth they needs must think;
They are slaves who dare not be
In the right with two or three.
by James Russell Lowell (1819-1891)
The Final Solution to Abortion
Answers to the disturbing questions raised by abortion may be. found in Jesus Christ and His holy word. The Scriptures hold Christ forth as the only one who can provide effective deliverance from the guilt, penalty, and power of abortion.
Once it is understood that abortion is murder, and neglecting to defend the needy is a grievous sin, an awakened conscience will accuse those guilty of these sins to deserve death, and the wrath and curse of God: “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
But God, in His great mercy and love with which He has loved us, has provided a solution to the sin and misery caused by abortion: He sent His Son. The good news is that God became man in Christ and was born into the world.
Jesus demonstrated that He is God in numerous ways: He fulfilled numerous Old Testament prophecies, healed lepers, raised the dead, and walked on water. Both then and now, He marvelously transforms peoples’ lives, setting them free from sin, and granting them new life.
Jesus was certainly not guilty of murdering anyone, or of neglecting the oppressed. He not only delivered the needy, He also suffered the penalty for every type of neglect when He hung on the cross: “But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5).
On the third day after Christ’s crucifixion, He rose from the dead. After appearing to many people in His resurrected body, He ascended into heaven, and now sits at the right hand of God the Father.
On judgment day, all men will appear before Him to render an account for the deeds done in the body, whether good or evil. The only ones who will be saved on that day are those who have repented of their sins, and trusted in Christ: “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). To be saved from the wrath to come, you must confess your sins, turn from them, and trust in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
He will pardon and cleanse you of all your sins, and give you a glorious new life, if you repent and look to Him as your Lord and Savior. Look to Christ alone to deliver you from the bloodguilt of abortion and you will be saved.
