‘For the Murdered Unborn, Incrementalism is Not Justice’

Published by:

Incrementalism is Not Justice for the Murdered Unborn.  Incrementalism Perverts Justice and the Law.

Incrementalism is the Regulation of Child-Murder-by-“Abortion”.  Incrementalism is Evil.

In the Sixth Commandment, God says, “Thou shalt not kill (murder).” Exodus 20:13, KJV.  Jesus Christ says, “If ye love Me, keep My commandments.” John 14:15.  Establishing Justice is obedience to God.

“[God] hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” Micah 6:8, KJV.  The LORD requires of man to DO Justice,

Doing Justice is something that is “good” in the eyes of God.  For the Murdered Unborn, Incrementalism is Not Justice.

Therefore, in the eyes of God, Incrementalism is not “Good”.  Incrementalism is Evil.

God says, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20, KJV.

“Justice and judgment are the habitation [foundation] of Thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before Thy face.” Psalm 89:14.  “… [R]ighteousness and judgment are the habitation of His throne.” Psalm 97:2  “Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: …” Amos 5:15 (Zechariah 8:16), KJV.  “To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.” Proverb 21:3, KJV.  “… [T]hey shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; …” Genesis 18:19, KJV.

For a period of 100 years or so, Sir William Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-1769) were used to train lawyers in America, beginning in the immediate pre-Revolutionary War Period, and lasting at least until the latter 1800’s, as was the case with the University of South Carolina Law School in Columbia (opened 1867).

In Blackstone’s Introduction, Section 2, “Of the Nature of Laws in General”  [ search http://lonang.com ], he wrote:

“Upon these two foundations, the law of nature and the law of revelation, depend all human laws;  that is to say, no human laws should be suffered to contradict these.”

Earlier on the same page Blackstone explained the source of “revealed or divine law” [ “the law of revelation” ]:

“The doctrines thus delivered we call the revealed or divine law, and they are to be found only in the holy scriptures.”  [ That is, the Bible, the Word of God. ]
This is the original foundation of the American legal system, based upon God’s Laws of Nature [ Note: not the same as so-called “natural law” ], and God’s Revealed Law.  In other words, “all human laws” are to be consistent with the Word of God, the Bible !!!  Blackstone continued, using the specific example of murder, stating, “Nay, if any human law should allow or injoin us to commit it [ i.e., murder ], we are bound to transgress that human law, or else we must offend both the natural and the divine.”  Does not Incremental legislation such as the abominable 20-week, so-called “Pain Capable” legislation passed in S.C. in 2016 “allow” THE MURDER OF ALL CHILDREN UNDER 20 WEEKS !?

Does not this year’s Incremental legislation, the evil so-called “Dismemberment” bill, “allow” THE MURDER OF ALL CHILDREN BY SUCTION AND RU-486 AND OTHER CHEMICAL ABORTIFACIENTS !?  These bills, using the words of Sir William Blackstone, “offend both the natural and the divine.”  They are an offense to God.  Explicitly or implicitly, these evil bills call “Good” what God and wise Christian men of an earlier generation such as Blackstone, call “Evil”.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; …” Isaiah 5:20, KJV.

From 1973 to 2015, over 382,000 children are reported by DHEC to have been destroyed in their mother’s wombs in South Carolina.  The Incrementalists like to point out, look how many babies have been saved while numerous incremental bills have passed over the years ( over nearing the last 30 years ).  They point to the over 50% decrease in reported “abortions” in SC since the number peaked at over 14,000 in 1988.  However is the goal to “save babies”, or is the divinely established goal (Amos 5:15, KJV) to actually Establish Justice and END “child-murder-by-“abortion”?

From 1989 to 2015, nearing one-quarter Million children (over 224,000) have been murdered on South Carolina soil.

Even the United States Constitution’s Preamble identifies that document’s second purpose, is to “establish Justice”.

So we can continue to “save babies”, some through incremental legislation, and some by pregnancy care centers, and some by sidewalk counselling, and some by numerous other means, but the cup of wrath of the judgment of God continues to fill as the innocent bloodshed continues, and those with eyes to see know we are already experiencing God’s ongoing warnings of remedial judgments in S.C. and America (e.g., 9-11-2001, Great Recession, 2015 Flood). Who knows when national calamity may come in the form of another national bloodbath, whether by our own hands, as was experienced 1861-1865 for the national sin of un-Biblical American Slavery (which cost at least over 600,000 American lives, North and South), or by foreign invaders (e,g., China, Russia, Iran, Islamic terrorists ?), or both ?

Slavery Abolitionist, editor, William Lloyd Garrison asked rhetorically, “… Has not the experience of two centuries shown that gradualism in theory is perpetuity in practice?”  The 1860 Republican Party Platform protected Slavery in the Slave States, while opposing expansion of Slavery in the western Territories.  We know now such “gradualism” was insufficient to stay God’s Hand of Judgment upon America as He gave that “terrible war” “to both North and South” (President Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address, March 4, 1865).  Applying Garrison’s admonition against gradualism to today’s national sin of child-murder, “Has not the experience of over 44 years shown that incrementalism in theory is the perpetuation of child-murder in practice?”  Incrementalism is perpetuating “abortion”.  It is well past time to END it.

Jesus says, “THOU SHALT DO NO MURDER” ( Matthew 19:18, KJV ).  Establish Justice Now !!!

The Lord Jesus Christ is “the King of kings, and Lord of lords”, now !  ( 1 Timothy 6:15, KJV ),

 ‘CORPORATE BLOODGUILT AND REPENTANCE’

‘CORPORATE BLOODGUILT AND REPENTANCE’

This message is about Corporate Bloodguilt and Repentance.  Over the last 44 years, it is reported that over 59 Million children in the womb have been killed by the government-protected sin and crime of child-murder-by-“abortion”.  However, regardless of what human governments sanction, God has already spoken, even writing in stone with His own finger, “Thou shalt not kill (murder).”  Exodus 20:13, KJV.  God’s Law is, always has been, and always will be, Higher than Man’s Law.  Acts 5:29, KJV says, “We ought to obey God rather than men.”  The Lord Jesus Christ says in Matthew 4:4, KJV, “MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDETH OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.”  God’s Word is for all men, for all nations, for all time.  It is error to say God’s Moral Law was only for ancient Israel.

Indeed, Proverb 14:34, KJV says, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”  Psalm 9:17, KJV says, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”  When it comes to the shedding of the innocent blood of Millions of children in their mothers’ wombs, America stands guilty before God.  Is that not true?

So, does the Bible give us any examples of individual or corporate repentance for the corporate sins of their land?  Yes it does.  I will briefly share two examples: 1) Nineveh at the preaching of Jonah; and 2) Daniel praying while in Persia.

First, Jonah 3:1-10, KJV, preaching to Assyria’s capital Nineveh sometime around 760 BC.  [Read Scripture.]

So at the preaching of the prophet Jonah, the people of Nineveh, from the greatest to the least, repented and reformed.

The Bible says “God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way” and so God did not bring judgment upon them.

Corporate repentance, and corporate reformation, resulted in corporate deliverance from the corporate judgment of God.

Second, Daniel 9:1-8, KJV, in Persia, approx. 539 BC, in the first year of king Darius.  [Read Scripture.]

So Daniel, taken captive as a youth in 605 BC upon the invasion of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, is praying to God approx. 66 years later, expressing repentance for the corporate sin of his people and leaders which led to the Babylonian Captivity of Judah from three attacks, 605 BC, 597 BC, and 586 BC.  Will we follow Daniel’s example?

South Carolina is a State with 1000’s of churches, and 100,000’s of professing Christians, but which has murdered over 382,000 children in their mothers’ wombs 1973-2015.  In 2015, South Carolina’s bloodguilt was further documented.

On September 30, 2015, an Ad Hoc Committee of the SC House Legislative Oversight Committee met on State House grounds, and held its first hearing on the connections between certain SC State agencies such as HHS, which administers Medicaid, and Planned Parenthood and other “abortion” “providers” [sic] as they were called.  First let me say, “abortion” is child-murder, and child-murder is not “provided”, it is perpetrated.  Murder is not provided, it is committed.  Using such bureaucratic language, the HHS director under SC Governor Haley described to the SC Representatives on the Ad Hoc Committee the number of children which had been murdered using SC taxpayer Medicaid money.  His most often used bureaucratic term describing the “aborting” mothers, was “beneficiaries”.  In other words, the mothers were so-called “beneficiaries” [sic] of Medicaid money to pay for the murder of their own sons and daughters.  Although the initially reported number of children murdered was later decreased from 222 to 29, FY 2011-2015, even one murder is too many.

This hearing was reported in the press.  Undercover videos had been released beginning in July 2015 which were widely publicized, exposing certain Planned Parenthood officials outside SC trafficking in body parts of “aborted” babies. At SC Governor Haley’s request in August, DHEC inspected SC’s three “abortion” centers.  On September 11, DHEC suspended the licenses of both Columbia’s Planned Parenthood and Greenville’s “abortion” center for multiple violations, including disposing of bodies of “aborted” babies in a landfill, instead of incinerating or burying them.  The deadline for corrective plans and fine payments was September 28.  Each “abortion” center sufficiently responded to DHEC’s Order  regulating the murder of pre-birth children, such that neither child-murder center was shutdown on September 28 or later.

More evidence could be provided of SC’s bloodguilt, such as the nearly $300,000 Medicaid funding given to Planned Parenthood, largely for birth control, much of which is abortifacient, from FY2011-2015.  God hears the cry of the voice of the shed innocent blood of these murdered children.  In Genesis 4:10, KJV after Cain slew righteous Abel, God said, “What hast thou done? The voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.”  So the legislative hearing which further publicly exposed and documented our corporate bloodguilt as a State, occurred September 30, 2015.  That was a Wednesday.  The next day, Thursday, October 1, 2015, the rains began.  That evening Governor Haley declared a State of Emergency in SC, and over the five days of October 1 – October 5 came the flooding, deaths, and destruction of what we now know as the Great Flood of October 2015.  I believe God judged South Carolina.

The Planned Parenthood child-murder center is located just about one-half mile outside the border of Forest Acres, which with the breeching of multiple dams, was the location of some of the worst flooding and destruction in the State.

It was learned months later the number of “abortions” at Planned Parenthood went up by over 300 in 2015, causing the entire State to report an increase, even though the child-murder centers in Greenville and Charleston reported decreases.

Am I able to prove a spiritual connection between corporate bloodguilt and the 1,000-Year Flood which devastated this State, costing 19 lives, and billions of dollars in damage, some of which remains to this day?  No, I cannot prove it.  However I can tell you God is not mocked, that whatsoever a man, or City, or State, or Nation sows, that shall that man, or City, or State, or Nation also reap.  I can tell you the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the fear of the LORD is to hate evil.  And I can tell you, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”  Hebrews 10:31, KJV.

Corporate Bloodguilt calls for Repentance.  It is the primary reason for which we are gathered here today.

‘GOD Has Shown US Great MERCY…What Will We Do with the OPPORTUNITY?’

Published by:

Subject:  Letter to the Editor / Opinion Editorial

From:  Steve Lefemine, November 12, 2016 / Edited, Revised November 14, 2016

‘GOD Has Shown US Great MERCY…What Will We Do with the OPPORTUNITY?’

The 2016 Presidential Election is over. The transition has begun.  The Trump Inauguration is January 20, 2017.

GOD Has Shown US Great MERCY.  “Mercy” is when we are not given what we would be rightly judged to receive.

For our national sin of 43+ years of government-protected-and-funded child-murder-by-“abortion” alone, a just and righteous Divine Judgment visited upon the nation corporately, as revealed in Scripture, is for the LORD to give this people “into the hand of the heathen”, such that “they that hated them ruled over them”, and such that “[t]heir enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.” (Psalm 106:37-42, KJV).

In a word, such a wicked, bloody people will be given over, by God Himself, to TYRANNY.  On the eve of Tuesday, November 8, we were looking into the face of an even greater level of tyranny than we are already under – make no mistake – we are already under Divine Judgment for the unrecompensed shedding of innocent blood of 59+ Million (reported) pre-birth children.  Many Christians rightly feared what further oppression might ensue if Jezebel was given the reins of presidential power in the White House.  Many Christians cried out to God for mercy, praying and fasting.  By 3 am or so early Wednesday morning, with the State of Pennsylvania decided, the news came: GOD Had Indeed Shown US Great MERCY.  Now the question is, especially for born-again Christians (Matthew 5:13-16; Matthew 28:18-20, KJV), What Will We Do with the Opportunity?  This Opportunity is also a Responsibility.  Will we truly Repent of our national sin of government-protected-and-funded child-murder-by-“abortion” – and the national corporate bloodguiltiness which is in our midst? (Nehemiah 1:4-11; Daniel 9:3-19; Numbers 35:1,33; Deuteronomy 21:7-9, KJV).

In addition to the US Presidency, Republicans also control the US House and the US Senate.  All three law-making components of the US Federal Government will be in Republican hands by January 20, 2017.  There is NO EXCUSE for the US Congress not to hold House and Senate Judiciary Committee Hearings to pass principled Personhood Bills (such as HR 426 in the current 114th Congress, or if necessary to overthrow US Supreme Court oath-breaking judicial activism and tyranny, HR 2761 – see www.Congress.gov) to establish Justice (as Preamble of the US Constitution purposes) for pre-birth human beings; recognizing the God-given, unalienable right to life of every human being as a person, at fertilization, in law, and without “exception”; because God says, “Thou shalt not kill (murder).” Exodus 20:13, KJV.  Senate Republicans will have 51 or 52 seats, although current Senate Rules require 60 votes to stop a filibuster.

Concurrently, States’ Personhood Bills such as South Carolina’s 2015-2016 Personhood Constitutional Amendment (S.719, H.4093 – see www.SCStateHouse.gov) and/or such as South Carolina’s 2013-2014 Personhood Act (S.457) must also continue to be pursued [ History of Personhood Legislation in South Carolina ( 1998 – 2016 ) ].

The Bible says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish: …” (Proverb 29:18, KJV).  We Christians need the spiritual and prophetic vision to call for the establishment of Justice, and the END of child-murder-by-“abortion”, now !

We Christians need the faith, vision, courage, obedience, knowledge, wisdom, and will; to go forth in Christ’s Name (Colossians 3:17, KJV), to do His Work (Proverb 24:10-12; Proverb 31:8,9; Psalm 82:3,4; Isaiah 1:16,17; Amos 5:15; Matthew 22:37-39; Luke 10:29-37; Matthew 25:31-46; James 1:27, KJV), in His Way (John 14:6; Psalm 89:14; Psalm 97:2; Proverb 8:13, KJV), according to His Word (Matthew 4:4; Proverb 14:34; Psalm 9:17; 2 Samuel 23:3; Romans 13:1-4; 1 Peter 2:14; Psalm 33:12, KJV), for His Glory (1 Corinthians 10:31; Isaiah 48:11; Isaiah 42:8, KJV) !!!

PASS PERSONHOOD NOW !!!

The Lord Jesus Christ is “the King of kings, and Lord of lords”, now !  ( 1 Timothy 6:15, KJV ),
