Kermit Gosnell and the God Who Sees

leave a comment »

While meditating on Isaiah 29, I couldn’t help but think of Kermit Gosnell and indeed the abortion industry as a whole, the industry that allowed him to get away with mass murder for decades, all to protect so-called “choice” and “reproductive freedom.” But God sees. He says,

Ah, you who hide deep from the LORD your counsel,
whose deeds are in the dark,
and who say, “Who sees us? Who knows us?”
16You turn things upside down! Shall the potter be regarded as the clay, that the thing made should say of its maker,
“He did not make me”;
or the thing formed say of him who formed it,
“He has no understanding”?

20For the ruthless shall come to nothing
and the scoffer cease,
and all who watch to do evil shall be cut off,
21who by a word make a man out to be an offender,
and lay a snare for him who reproves in the gate,
and with an empty plea turn aside him who is in the right. (Isa. 29:15-16, 20-21)

God sees not only our deep darkness, the stains of our abortion culture, but also, the broken lives of whole families, and mothers in particular, who often have to carry their guilt in silence and secrecy. God sees…that our wickedness might stop, but also that we might find healing and forgiveness. Jesus came into the world not to judge it, but so that through him, the world might be delivered from the dominion of darkness.

Shine your light in our hearts, O God, and turn us again to you. Heal us of our “deep defection” from you, and let us minister the love of Christ in the lives of those torn by abortion. Amen.
