Unable to alter God's will

Unable to alter God's will

  • Updated

The April 17 issue of the Napa Valley Register fearured a letter, "Going about God's work," by Jennifer Sroufe, which caught my attention.

She is trying to discredit Planned Parenthood calling it a "silent holocaust - the worst genocides possible, where our daughters are taught to sacrifice their babies on the altar of 'sin' and 'choice'". She gives thanks "to the dedicated prayer warriors still keeping busy about God's work."

She is totally misguided in her religious zeal and she has no idea of the dedicated work and valuable help Planned Parenthood provides for women all over the country.

Many faithful Christians are gullible anti-abortionists because they believe that God loves little children. These believers are ignoring the Bible which shows God as a cruel killer of children. "Thus says the LORD: About midnight I will go forth in the midst of Egypt; and all the first-born in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first-born of Pharaoh who sits upon his throne, even to the first-born of the maidservant who is behind the mill;..." Exodus 11:4-6.

There are many other examples of God killing people, including children, indiscriminately as in the Flood and during the destruction of whole cities. ".. a blessing on him who takes and dashes your babies against the rocks." Psalm 137.9

This is what the Lord says - "your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself," Isaiah 44:24.

This means that all the miscarriages, which are fairly common, (on average, about 1 in 5 pregnancies), are God's doing. So, Jennifer Sroufe's "prayer warriors" cannot alter God's will.
