January 22 marks the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that has legalized the death of millions of American unborn babies. What must God do to a nation that methodically murders a huge portion of an entire generation of its own people?
Here are Thomas Jefferson's words inscribed inside of the dome of the Jefferson Memorial: "Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."
The same dome includes these words of Jefferson: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
It is interesting to note that Jefferson said humans are "created" with these rights. He did not say that we were "born" with them. He assigned those rights even to those who were created, but had not yet been born.
When, how and to what extent must God judge our nation for its sins? Like Jefferson, I tremble for my country. God is still just and His justice cannot sleep forever.
