Arbitration and Terry Schiavo

It is a sad day for those of us who believe in the sanctity of human life. Every human ever created was done so in the image of God. Each person is God's handiwork as Creator and Sustainer of life. It is He who breathed in us the breath of life, and each breath is sustained by the creative work of God. In the case of Terry Schindler Schaivo, human beings have acted as arbiters against God and assumed the rights to determine when those breaths can stop. This is an act of undermining the sovereignty of God and clearly an example of human insurgency. Our days were numbered before we were born by the decretive will of God, and for a judge or illigetimate husband to decree the death upon a woman who clearly has life in her is a pronouncement with eternal consequences. We all must stand up and stand against this arbitrary nature of mankind to rule outside the governing and judicial will of God. In the end, yes, God's rule will stand and his verdict will be carried out, but we are representatives and mouthpieces of His truth to speak what He has already spoken in His Word. We must see this situation for what it is - arbitration against God. As this dear lady starves, may every breath we take and every meal we eat bear in mind the gift of life that God gives us and pray for those who are having theirs taken away. May God have mercy on those perpetrating this barbaric act and comfort Terry with His peace and loving care. For the whole story of Terry Schaivo, I encourage you to listen to today's broadcast of Glenn Beck radio show. You can find it on his website (http://www.glennbeck.com/).
