Jolting The Democrats

It is high time that the Democrats

start searching their souls

to answer the question :

“What are we in power for?”

The RH Bill, One Universal Viewpoint….

The RH Bill, One Universal Viewpoint

Almost all the opponents of the Reproductive Health Bill come from the Church. This is expected. In fact we would not have it any other way. They would lose our respect if they didn’t.

The debate regarding the passage of this bill has boiled down to the definition of conception and contraception, what is God’s Will and what is not.

The good portion of arguments against the passage of the RH Bill is based on church doctrine, which is actually based on church dogma, which is in turn sourced from God’s words.

Now, I do not profess to know God’s Words nor understand God’s logic. What I may be able to do is presume what God thinks, which I believe is one such herculean task  by measly ol’ me; a presumption which I hope may be understood by more beliefs than one, and consequently,  more faiths than one.

Let me then put it this way………

With all the majestic things that God has created in the universe—- the galaxies, the nebulae, the comets, the planets; and the beautiful things like the mountains, trees, flowers, land, and seas; therein lies in the artistry in Him that desire for these things to be appreciated. And within that second of a thought, Man was created, followed by Woman, both of which God imbued with a portion of Himself which we verily call the image of Himself. We can say that this image corresponds to intelligence, or maybe compassion, creativity, or whichever human trait we can think of that makes us closer to God than the animals. I say, however, that the trait that God gave Man and Woman the split image of Himself is FREE WILL.

God is the only God, There is no other. His is the only will, and therefore His Will is free. God gave Man and Woman free will, the same as what He has got, and never will He take this away from Man and Woman. But why free will?

It is true that the greatest joy from being appreciated should come from somebody who has a free choice, somebody who can say no, somebody who can argue, somebody who has a mine of his own, somebody who can disagree. God’s Angels and cherubs and seraphims all say praise to God in concert and are therefore bound to agree that what He created is good. This they do because they can do no other to God than praise God. So Man and Woman were created. They come with flimsy bodies and errant decisions, but with a free choice. And then came The Fall, after which God declared that living in Eden will henceforth become a reward and not a privilege.

But then I ask the question: why would God give Man and Woman the equipment and the process of replicating their kind if they would be punished for doing so?  And then add as parting words to Man and Woman to “live and multiply”? We may say that this was a test of obedience. I will also say that this was a test of obedience, and more so will I say that this was actually a test of free will.

The test proved to be a success because Man and Woman chose to disobey God and therefore exercised their free will. Could it have been more logical for God to place Man and Woman on earth and then get them to Eden as a reward for
obeying God?  Maybe so. But this is where churches come in—– to remind people that there is another place of
punishment called Hell, which is worse than living on earth.

Contraception, conception, abortion, promiscuity, family planning,  aids, condoms, pills, birth control, population explosion, poverty—-whatever argument we may bring out for or against the Reproductive Health Bill,
these would fail as an argument against the god-given right of free choice. Whether the RH Bill would prove to be bad or good, let conscience be the judge.

As a matter of fact, if we let conscience be the judge,
there would be no more need for the Reproductive Health Bill at all.
