Speaking the Truth

We don’t like to speak the truth about evil because we’re going to hurt somebody. Let me tell you, you are going to hurt somebody, but that Somebody is God. If you would rather hurt God than your neighbor, there is something wrong with your spirituality. It’s your obligation to speak the truth and everyone can either take it or leave it. But truth must be in us. We live in such poverty of the truth today.

Oh I'm so frustrated this morning!!!

I was typing my Devotional for today and had on Fox and Friends (my most favorite morning show). Octo-Mom came up. Now first and foremost, she must be the most frustrating creature. She actually has a website up to get donations from all of us Americans to help her take care of here babies. I'm just absolutely speechless....

But that was just the tip of the iceberg here. Brian, one of the hosts, was talking about the process of in-vitro. He said that he notices that women have these "embryos" and feel this need to use them because we think they are babies and they're not!! WHAT?!!?

I'm sorry, I don't typically do this, but what an IDIOT!!! Embryos ARE babies!!!! That's what people don't get, and he just goes and spouts it on television. That "embryo" is the beginning of a human being. The cells that make up that "embryo" is defining that baby's features. Brown or blue eyes, blonde or brown hair, fat or skinny, chunky cheeks or not.... He is a BABY!!

Society has become so numb to human life because we, as humans, have decided to play God and create life outside of the womb and then implant it in a woman in "hopes" that that baby will continue to live. CONTINUE TO LIVE!! If the baby doesn't implant, then it dies. IT DIES!! Dying suggests it was living, does it not?!?!?

Take embryonic stem cell research for instance. If the "embryo" wasn't living, what good would he be to us?? He wouldn't!! That's why we create that LIFE. So we can study him!! How sick.

God is the ONLY one who should be creating life. We as humans are going to have a lot of explaining to do!!

Aaaaarrrrggghhhh... just a little frustrated this morning. People can be so STUPID sometimes!!!!

I apologize ahead of time for using harsh words, but I feel they are necessary this morning to get my point across... FRUSTRATION!!!

ESCR is a strong button for me. My 9 year old son has type one diabetes and juvenile diabetes research is spending more money of embryonic stem cell research than on adult stem cell research. It drives me bonkers. Many parents I know with type one children think that escr is fine. They have no problem with it.

I want a cure for children and hope they do find one one day. However I will not support any group that is giving money to find the cure via embryonic stem cells.

Oh, Karen, I can only FEEL your frustration!! That woman really irks me too. I mean seriously!! When I heard the latest that she actually wanted US to pay to take care of her children--I too was just stunned. Still, in stunned amazement...
