LISTEN NOW! When we begin to turn to government to take the place of God, there is no telling how things will end up. Regardless of what choices that could be made, apart from God, it doesn’t end up good. According to The Guardian, the French government is not only talking about banning all internet discussions of “anti-abortion” speech, but it may be passed as law.
There was a moment in time when the Israelites demanded that they be given a king to rule over them, like all the other nations around them had. What they didn’t know at the time, was that this decision would not end well. As troubling as this was to Samuel, God said to Samuel what the real issue was; “it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king”. When we choose government to take the place of God, we are rejecting God and the end results never turn out for the good.
The solutions that governments present will always fall short compared to God’s wisdom. Consider China. Amidst the growing population of China, their resolution is to limit families to only one child. If a family has two children, they have to kill the second child. China’s ‘One-Child Policy’ has only recently been lifted. China is okay with abortion. And now, so is France.
As The Guardian reports, “The Socialist government’s proposal seeks to criminalize any websites that deliberately mislead, intimidate or “exert psychological or moral pressure” on a woman seeking information about terminating a pregnancy…” If this were not concerning enough, the punishment is sure to raise eyebrows: “of up to two years in prison and a €30,000 fine.” Converted to American Dollars, this is $31,875.00. This is the consequence for merely voicing your opinion that you are against abortion. Simply put, the French government is trying to control free speech.
In response to these decisions from the government, the archbishop of ‘Marseille and head of the French bishops’ conference’ “warned Hollande that the plans posed a threat to freedom of expression and “freedom of conscience””. While another bishop pointed out, “the government was trying to act as “thought police””.
It is only God that knows the thoughts of men. We cannot think we that we can “legislate” our ideas above God. If we don’t value life in the womb, then we are surely not going to value the life of the elderly. According to procon, “5 states (CA, CO, OR, VT, and WA) legalized physician-assisted suicide via legislation, 1 state (MT) has legal physician-assisted suicide via court ruling”. This is the very paradigm that James Dobson writes in his book Fatherless.
Only a few generations ago, the younger generations would seek their elders for wisdom. Now, we have all sorts of information at our fingertips. No other generation has been exposed to as much media and information as our present generations do. But this is just information, just knowledge. This is not wisdom. Information and wisdom are two totally different things. It is vital that we do not look at life as government does but as God does. Get the full conversation about what is taking place in France, how things end up if we do not value life, and so much more.
