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 ),
