More evidence of man’s depravity

A group of medical “ethicists” linked to Oxford University recently declared that, ” Parents should be allowed to have their newborn babies killed because they are ‘morally irrelevant’ and ending their lives is no different to abortion.

“Ethicists” indeed.

This is a perfect example of the doctrine of the Total Depravity of Man.

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! — Isaiah 5:20

Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but he sent me. Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me. Which one of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.” — John 8:42-47

These “ethicists” even make their proclamations from, what they perceive as, a position of moral authority. ” The moral status of an infant is equivalent to that of a fetus in the sense that both lack those properties that justify the attribution of a right to life to an individual.”

I am reminded that the Nazis murdered whole categories of people they deemed as lacking “those properties that justify the attribution of a right to life to an individual.”

The horrors of hearts enslaved to sin are on display for a whole new generation to witness.

May God grant repentance.

    It seems like that would be the direction things are moving in. It’s a sad thing.

      I have often looked back on some of the darkest periods in history — when man’s depravity seemed unchecked — and wondered…

      — How in the world the Nazis could have been justified in their own minds at murdering millions…

      — How the Romans could thrill to games where people actually died, right in front of their eyes…

      It is quite disturbing to think we are watching that kind of progression occur at this very moment.

    Thank you for sharing this, I have been doing so through social media. When I about this the other day and I wept because we continue to offer up our children to Moloch, and as in the days of Noah the earth is filled with violence through us. I am “waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of the Lord”. 2 Peter 3:12
