How to Remove the Scales?

In  Acts 9, Saul had a form of scales on his eyes.  Blindness had taken place and at one point, "something like scales" fell from his eyes.  His sight was then restored.  We don't really know what that covering was actually like but the substance kept Saul from seeing anything.

And so it is with those who deny the Holocaust.   They have a thick covering over their eyes, but more aptly their hearts, minds and souls.  There are people who actually deny the Holocaust ever happened.  There are people who diminish the numbers of Jews and the other victims Hitler rounded up to be murdered.  The people who deny such things are often shown photos of the piles of emaciated bodies, the piles of bones and personal belongings that once belonged to the dead.  They shrug and deny.

Personal testimonies from both sides of the war share what they saw or did.  My own father-in-law was present when a concentration camp was liberated.  He saw with his own eyes which haunted him and many others of his division.   There were trials of the war criminals and since then, some have repented of their actions.  No matter.  Whether you have photos, eyewitness accounts or documented reports.....these people deny it all or downplay the monstrosity and magnitude of the Holocaust.

Now we have it happening on a different front.  This is a different battle.  However, this victim has the same identity in that he or she is "not human" or is a "useless weed" and "not convenient to have around".  This victim can also be the subject of ghoulish and grisly experiments. 

The person in the womb is dehumanized and labeled "it", "blob of tissue", "clump of cells", or "genetic material".  It's all about placing a NEW label to fool the people.  It works.  It worked for Hitler and now it works for the abortion faction.  No one has to think about the victim and that's convenient. No wonder it's so easy to deny that millions have been slaughtered. 

Every day in the United States alone, around 3,600 babies are murdered.  That works out to over a million every year.   Since 1973, there have been over 53 million human beings murdered in the womb.  The Deniers refuse to look and believe.   You can show them photos of babies who have gone through an abortion.  The answer?  "Those are fake".   Eyewitness accounts from both sides saying yes, this is going on every day......the Deniers attack the messengers instead of the facts. 

Even to this day, we know there are people who still glorify Hitler.  We saw that with Klebold and Harris in 1999 at Columbine High School massacre.   There will always be people who think Hitler helped Germany.  There will always be SOMEONE who will say "Hitler did SOME good." 

Now we have the modern-day version.  You will always find someone who glorifies the abortion world and their abortion franchise. 

When I first started this blog, I saw the different designs and saw the weeds.  I thought at first...how sad.  They aren't FLOWERS.   I thought of Mother Teresa's quote (paraphrased) "How can there be too many children?  That's like saying there are too many flowers."  

The weeds are significant though and I chose this design.  Margaret Sanger repeatedly used the term "weeds" to describe her own opinion of people who didn't measure up to her idea of perfection.  "
"In his last book, Mr. [H.G.] Wells speaks of the meaningless, aimless lives which cram this world of ours, hordes of people who are born, who live, who die, yet who have done absolutely nothing to advance the race one iota. Their lives are hopeless repetitions. All that they have said has been said before; all that they have done has been done better before. Such human weeds clog up the path, drain up the energies and the resources of this little earth. We must clear the way for a better world ; we must cultivate our garden."   Margaret Sanger, "The Need for Birth Control in America," in Birth Control: Facts and Responsibilities, ed. Adolf Meyer, M.D. (Baltimore: Williams and Wilkins Co., 1925), 11-49, here 48

"‘Nature eliminates the weeds, but we turn them into parasites and allow them to reproduce.’ Could any business maintain itself with the burden of such an ‘overhead’? Could any breeder of livestock conduct his enterprise on such a basis? I do not think so.”  Is Race Suicide Probable?  Colliers, 1925, 25.

By the way, according to Margaret Sanger, I would have been a "weed" clogging up her path.  In infancy, it was discovered that I was not growing normally.  There were problems of physical development and after a search for answers, they found a pediatrician who diagnosed the problem.  I had hypothyroidism.  Left untreated, hypothyroidism would advance to Cretinism.  For mental retardation, Sanger wanted mandatory sterilization and even suggested special farms/camps set aside for many classes of indigents, feeble-minded people, criminals and... well, you get the picture.  Suffice to say, had my pediatrician not discovered the condition,  Sanger would have categorized me as a class A, noxious weed.  Sanger died the year I was born.  WHEW, escaped THAT ONE! 

I pray for those who still believe that Hitler sang Kum Bah Ya and  that Margaret Sanger was all that and a bag of chips.  They keep their eyes, heart and brains screwed up tight into a mass of delusion.  Pride is a very deceptive sin and a very heavy set of manacles and chains. 

Romans 1:22-32 - Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.   Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.  Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
