This is the end result. It was obvious not long ago. I was reminded of it when my wife and I sat to watch the first 30 minutes of “Sarah’s Key” which is based on the Vel’ d’Hiv Roundup. We had to turn it off. As parents of small kids, it was too much to take. Here is a snippet:
But it was obvious. The eugenics program of Nazism was obviously obvious, it killed innocent people. Somehow the mass destruction of entire groups of people never registered as murder to many Nazis. A euphemism had to be created so that it would be easier to end human life. In the case of Hitler, it was a science term, “eugenics.” It seems it was easier for Hitler’s people to kill a person if it was for science. That is a very scary place to be.
It is less than 100 years after the eugenics movement. Across the pond from those gas chambers, we have reached the same end though. We change words to fit actions that are so humanly depraved so that we can keep telling ourselves that it is really ok. “Pro-choice,” “Assisted-suicide,” “Adult entertainment,” “Recreational drug use,” “Pay-day loans” are all new words for old traditional sins. Each of these is slavery. How long do you think a movement that says “We think it is ok to let a woman kill her child” or “I am for murdering people that are feeling depressed” or “Women should be allowed to be abused by multiple men as long as she gets paid for ‘acting’” or “Losing your free will is a good thing if it doesn’t hurt anyone” and lastly, “We give people money to put food on the table and charge then 100% interest to do so” would last? Rather, in the name of some outlandish definition of liberty, we enslave.
All of those horror stories of Nazi camps are pretty much going on here and now. Take family separation. Every Nazi type movie I have seen takes children from mom and mom from husband. The scene is so destructive. The children are crying like crazy and the parents’ pain is intense. Today, we divorce like it is nothing. The same result just a different means. The same conclusion has been accomplished albeit with the use of a softer communism called materialism and license.
We may call it “mercy killing” but it is really “killing mercy.” You see, mercy means “gift, reward.” Who would ever really think that taking a life is a reward? Rather, it is killing mercy because it is taking the life of a gift, a gift that is not yours to take even if it be your own.
The second most defenseless people are starting to feel the pressure to end their own life. A similar strategy is being promoted just like it was in 1973: it is your right. Why does “It is your right” these days quickly follow with the end of life?
“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here…”
This is the real rallying cry for the culture of death. Despair is one of the scariest spiritual diseases. It grips the throat, nauseates the mind, sends a person in a dark wilderness far from the path that is straight and true. These are the sick that we are sent to heal, the oppressed that we set free, the hungry that we are to feed. The culture of death offers a bitter pill and a false gospel to the terminally ill. The Christian stands as a testament of hope. Comforting the sick and dying in their final test; in their last leg of the race we stand besides the dying to accompany them to their final resting place. We suffer with another person which is the true definition of compassion.
