I was watching a show last night (documentary) and learned that for a long time, contraceptives were illegal, in the United States of America. I was watching in dismay, as I heard how this man tried to pass out contraceptives, and was arrested, even put in jail over it!
Many Christians believed (back then) it should be illegal, and were putting sure they were in God’s will to put up such a fight. This was Extreme. (see the passage, Ecc 7:8)
AS God still says, a man who fears God, avoids all extremes. Now, you can ignore it, cast this wisdom off from you, but it’s Still a Word of God’s Wisdom, for us today.
What happened was, ONE MAN in a position of leadership, with great confidence in his beliefs, stood up and talked about why contraceptives should be illegal. He reasoned that Women could become promiscuous, or that they were not doing the will of God, and for a long time, many were on his side.
Women, through the years, have been made slaves by many, victims of abuse, untold suffering, and denied the freedom in Christ (to choose) and not so much today, but at one time, yes, they were denied much freedom.
We were designed to serve, love, nurture, but then again, so were men! Before the fall of Adam, men had all the attributes of God in their lives. God never intended for men to be brutal taskmasters, toward anyone! The next time you are thinking God is into your rally, just remember, what is justice to one, may be unjust towards another……..
NONE OF US Understands the full spectrum or scope of JUSTICE in it’s purest form, without seeing through the eyes of God the Father and Jesus, his son.
this is a word of Wisdom, for you and for me. Stop and consider, before you jump on the bandwagon for what you consider to be Justice. Amen.
