TEXAS LADY JUANITA
My son lost another friend to suicide, another Gen X child. I know these adults believe their physical or mental pain is unbearable. Perhaps they did not understand the depths of despair they leave behind for every family member and friend. Nor did they understand this act is a departure of and failure of their faith. I wish I had an opportunity to talk to them.
In large part I blame the school systems for teaching a proven lie, named evolution. According to evolution humans are created accidentally out of pond scum that evolved into apes, and then evolved into you and I. What a deplorable lie. We know from many things that we are created beings, not the least of which is the digital code of our DNA.
To accept that we are created, one must repent of their sins, and endeavor to live turning from sin. But the alternative is not taught in schools, and we can all blame ourselves for this. If they were taught that they were deliberately, “fearfully, and wonderfully made” they would feel special, and loved by The Lord that created them. Taking their own lives means they had no solid belief that God had a special plan for their lives.
I also blame the families who stopped going to their churches of their youth, when their churches were taken over by evil purpose. Some turned away because they did not have the drive to do anything about the casualness of sin in the 21st century. Turning from sin is easier than many believe. Once I accepted the gospel regarding Jesus Christ, a change happened in me. I feel the Lord 24/7/365 inside of me. I talk to Him all the time, not only when life gets a bit too much for me to deal with.
My faith is strong and steady. I know that The Lord created me. The Bible speaks of The Lord knowing you before you were in your mother’s womb. He created you and knows you. He loves you and wants you to come to Him of your own free will.
Consider these verses:
Jeremiah 1:5 (KJV) “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
“Psalm 139:13-14 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”
“Isaiah 44:24 (KJV) Thus saith the Lord, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the Lord that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;”
“Galatians 1:15 (KJV) But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace,”
“Ephesians 1:4 (KJV) According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:”
The Lord wants you to come to Him of your own volition. You have a choice yes or no – no gray areas – no maybes. The World tries to woo you to foil God’s plans for you.
“Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
The Lord also expects you to live by faith, and to know He exists based solely on the magnitude of His Creation. The Bible says there will be no excuses good enough for not knowing He is your Creator.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”
It is not too late to come to The Lord.
It is not too late to help your adult children back to Christ.
It is not too late to change what our children are being taught in school.
It is not too late to recover your church from un-Biblical forces.
It is not too late to turn America back on a Godly path.
It is not too late to become a teacher in your church.
It is not too late to run for political office for one or two turns as your civic duty; setting an example.
IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO TALK TO THE YOUNG FOLKS IN OUR REPUBLIC, TELLING THEM THAT THEY ARE BEAUTIFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE, AND THERE IS NO PROBLEM YOU CANNOT HELP THEM WITH. Maybe we can stop the suicides.
