4,000 embryos destroyed in Northern Ireland

Figures uncovered by Mr Jim Allister MLA have disclosed that since 2006 4,000 embryos have been destroyed in Northern Ireland. This is all in the name of IVF fertility treatment!

Health Minister Edwin Poots gives four reasons for this destruction of life:
1. The 'poor quality' of the embryos.
2. They are deemed as 'not suitable for transfer back to the patient or cryopreservation'.
3. The 'legal consent period has been reached'.
4. The 'couple withdraw their consent to storage'.

See full report in Belfast Newsletter

So for others to have the privilege of having children that they might call their own, 4,000 other children have to die. This is surely perverted logic, unscriptural and grossly immoral!

A human embryo is, biologically, a living human at the earliest stage of its development. Psalm 139:13-17 clearly teaches this:
For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

Surely no Christian can have any part in the destruction of life in this way. This is murder in God's eyes plain and simple!

My wife drew my attention to this quote that she came upon while reading Matthew Henry's commentary on Leviticus:

It is bad when great men give bad examples, but worse when all men follow them.

Ulster 1912

This poem was written by Rudyard Kipling and was first published in The Morning Post, on 9th April 1912 in recognition of the fight against Home Rule.

Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of inquity and the act of violence is in their hands, Isaiah 49:6.

The dark eleventh hour
Draws on and sees us sold
To every evil power
We fought against of old -
Rebellion, rapine, hate,
Oppression, wrong and greed
Are loosed to rule our fate
By England's art and deed.

The faith in which we stand,
The laws we made and guard,
Our honour, lives, and land
Are given for reward
To murder done by night
To treason taught by day,
To folly, sloth, and spite,
And we are thrust away.

Abortion abuse not a pressing priority for the liberal elite

Some weeks ago it came to light that serious irregularities were prevalent in abortion clinics. Not only were these clinics doing things immoral but illegal as well. Which is quite a feat in the present day abortion climate!

An investigation was launched by the Westminster Health Secretary, Andrew Lansley. It has subsequently discovered that 20%, ie. one abortion clinic in five, have been failing to follow the law in providing abortions.

Some clinics were allowing women to kill their unborn child on the basis of its gender. Certificates were being pre-signed by doctors giving consent to terminations without the women ever being seen. Under the 1967 Abortion Act, this should be approved by two doctors.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC), the body instructed to carry out these checks on around 250 abortion clinics have now taken the side of the abortion clinics and are complaining that they have been asked to carry out these inspections. They claim that it disrupts their other work and costs money.

It would seem that the abuse of abortion practices - the murder of the unborn- is not a great priority with these members of the liberal elite. The impression is that abortion clinics should be given an open license to practice. We all know that abortion is part of the liberal, feminist agenda that has been pushed for decades in this country.

There's no effective alternative

The headline reads: Ban on the cane 'left schools unable to impose discipline and led to deterioration in children's behaviour'. Read more here

A related story can be found here: Spoilt little Buddhas! Doting parents turn out children who just can't behave, says teachers' leader

Members of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers at their annual conference voted unanimously for research into ‘effective’ disciplinary methods. The delegates also condemned existing sanctions such as detention and suspension as being inadequate.

One teacher is on record as saying: When corporal punishment was abolished nothing was put in its place that had equivalent deterrent powers.
This outcry against the failure of modern methods of discipline comes as research by the teachers’ association suggests pupil behaviour had declined further in recent years.

Sadly, while bemoaning the decline in behaviour and the uselessness of modern methods of discipline, the Association of Teachers and Lecturers have also rejected a return to the use of the cane. 

This is prime example of the wisdom of this world falling well short of the wisdom of God. God makes no mistakes when in His infallible Word He declares how children are to be disciplined. The penny is beginning to drop that the liberal agenda doesn't work. This was said at the time and now the fruits are being seen. Abandoning God's wisdom for man's wisdom is folly. It leads not to better circumstances but to worse. 

The simple truth is that there is no effective alternative. Any amount of research can be done, new methods of disciplining children dreamed up, but they will eventually all fail. There is no alternative to God's appointed means of disciplining children.
