We are reaping a bitter harvest for turning away from Christianity.
century, that one in five pregnancies in Canada would end in abortion and paid for at taxpayers' expense! A woman can have an abortion for any reason (or no reason) and she can have as many as she wants. No questions asked. Who would have believed that the definition of marriage would be changed in an audacious social experiment not based upon social science but political and ideological fashion! Who would have believed that pornography would be widespread and accepted by mainstream media, or that our children would freely engage in premarital sex against a backdrop of rampant sexually transmitted disease!
Who would have believed that the highest court in the land (the
Canadian Supreme Court) would strike down the nation's laws against assisted suicide in favour of physician assisted suicide for any medical condition! This includes any illness, disease or disability "that causes enduring suffering that is intolerable to the individual in the circumstances of his or her condition." Intolerable suffering includes physical or PSYCHOLOGICAL pain. A whole new phase of killing will soon begin under the guise of choice and autonomy.
There was a time, not so long ago, when physician assisted
suicide would have been considered murder. Now it will be a right for suicidal people! The next thing to be dismantled will be conscience rights of doctors and nurses of faith who refuse to participate. The right to death will be accompanied with the duty to kill, or be accomplices to murder by referral to physicians who have no qualms about euthanizing suicidal people. (Disguise killing suicidal people with the cleverest of euphemisms but it is still crossing a cultural taboo ... that of taking a human life.)
This New Age barbarism will put in peril the weakest of society who have sunk beneath the waves of their circumstances (just as it has done with widespread abortion). The generals of this army of cultural barbarians are politicians in high places and judges surrounded by a coterie of bureaucratic minions who draft ever more audacious social policies so perfectly dark as to be impregnable to the divine light of Christ's absolute truth. Each corpus delicti will be promoted and heralded by a willing press. Ideological atheistic professors in universities have indoctrinated the young so ripe for rebellion against truth and morality in favour of unfettered freedom without responsibility.
They all have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.
Critics and enemies of Christianity are quick to point out failing of western Christian civilization. Have you noticed something? Christians are quick to admit sins of the past and present. Anti-Christians are not prepared to admit their slightest failings, sins or corruptions. They charge headlong toward a cultural abyss.
but are quick to absolutely decry Christian wrongs. They have come to completely and absolutely believe in their relativist fiction. They call themselves "progressives" and progress to hideous evil where the value of life is arbitrary. The deformity of the moderns' character crawls to extinguish the noble flame of enlightenment of universal human rights. Their progress is regress toward a New Dark Age.
The sanctity of life has been exchanged to the sanctity of death.
Christians face dark days. We serve a God of light yet live in the logic of darkness. The Apostle John said this about Jesus: "In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it." 
Jesus said this of himself:
"This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light, because their deed were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God." 
Jesus is truth and life.  It is upon this reality that the cultural war will ultimately be fought. Expect to be hated just as Christ was hated. The hour is late and the forces of evil are strong but take heart and stand resolute for the truth of Christ despite formidable opposition. Nothing less than the sanctity of human life is at stake -- both in a physical and spiritual context.
We must strengthen what remains of our former Christian heritage and reclaim what has been lost. Take heart. If God is with us who can be against us? 
 The laws of Canada and America have British Common Law at their foundations dating back hundreds of years. Common Law is was based on Christianity. In his inaugural address of 1829, Dane Professor of Law at Harvard University said "There has never been a period in which Common Law did not recognize Christianity as laying at its foundation." (Quoted in Perry Miller, editor, The Legal Mind in America (New York: Doubleday, 1962), p.178.
See Sharon Kirkey, "In the wake of ruling, who does the killing" National Post, 11 February 2015, A-1. Kirkey quoted the President of the Canadian Society of Palliative Care Physicians, Dr. Susan MacDonald's response to the Supreme Court ruling of assisted suicide. Seventy-four percent of the Society's membership will not help their patients commit suicide once the act is legalized. Dr. MacDonald said: "It is anathema to us, to many of us. How would I ever inspire trust when people already have this terrible of what I do already."
