Yesterday, I found myself thinking about many things going on in this nation – political, moral, financial, social, ethnic … the list goes on. At first glance, it appears as a big mess going on in all directions. One particular issue I thought about was the new abortion law in New York, and the same issue and political mess in Virginia (USA). I’ve always been a very open minded person and one to consider many points of view before making up my mind. This is one issue that no matter how I look at it, I cannot understand or justify. How is it not a crime to end the life of a baby, especially at the point of delivery? How is it not immoral? We call the construction of a border wall immoral, but not the killing of a baby? How did we get here as a nation?
I was asking myself that when these words crossed my mind – “The state of a nation depends on the evolution of its people.” A sort of answer to my question. Then, I thought about these two words.
Nation – An aggregation of people organized under a single government. (American Heritage Dictionary)
Evolution -A gradual process in which something changes, especially into a more complex form. (American Heritage Dictionary)
What have we evolved into? Our currency reads, In God we trust.
Genesis 1:27 – God created man in his image, in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them.
We have not understood the meaning of life.
