To the editor:
Thursday’s Journal-World noted that President Obama just wanted to make sure that a woman’s choice is preserved concerning abortion and his Supreme Court nominee. Isn’t that what God did when he created man and gave us free will? He said you can have everything but you can’t eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. That’s what man has been doing since then, choosing between good and evil.
Unfortunately (and God knew this), we don’t do a very good job of making the right choices. But the God of love had a plan: He would send us someone to help (to know how to discern between good and evil, and to have the power to make the right choice) us out of our self-made predicaments. He sent us Jesus who gives us the Holy Spirit.
But even then, true to his character, God said that we would have to make a choice to accept Jesus if we are to receive the Holy Spirit. Just like in the beginning, we must choose to say, “Not my will, but your will be done.” Then, the shame of 40 million plus aborted babies would stop.
