“It’s a way of life!” was to be ‘the’ thought-provoking message for me today. It was May 29/14 and I was doing my regular daily protest against abortion with my graphic signs showing how abortions are done. Suddenly on Parliament Hill, a man said to me sarcastically as he passed by me quickly:
“It’s a way of life!”
I answered back: “It’s called murder, bloody murder.”
He was no doubt referring to the sign on my back which showed in a graphic way how abortions are done. (Cf: www.abortionNO.org ) He is obviously ‘pro-choice’, the choice to kill.
He quickly continued on his way. I wondered afterwards if this man understood the extreme importance of his statement?
His short but meaningful statement stayed with me.I meditated and prayed about this expression, “It’s a way of life.” What is a ‘way of life’? A ‘way of life’ is defined as “The behavior and habits that are typical of a particular person or group, or that are chosen by them, e.g., cities where violence is a way of life.” (Collins Dictionary)
In our ‘sex-obsessed’ society of today we have many people with a ‘way of life’ that is governed by an extreme selfishness, hedonism, materialism, and individualism, promiscuity and lust focused on ‘me, myself and I’. It is a way of life that shows a great ‘indifference’ towards anyone who stands in the way of their ‘self-satisfaction’, and their view of a comfortable life, especially in the area of sexual pleasures.
This sex-obsessed society of today which feeds the Culture of Death could have been avoided. Pope Paul VI saw it coming and tried to warn the Church and the world by writing his very controversial encyclical ‘Humanae Vitae’ in 1968. The majority of Bishops in North America rebelled against the Pope’s encyclical back in 1968 and did not convey its crucially important life-saving message to the Catholic world. They are still for the most part today in “disobedience mode”. I speak of it in “The Disobedience Disconnect between the Bishops and the Holy See Allows For The Ravages Of The Culture of Death.” ( cf: http://www.aborterrorism.ca/the-disobedience-disconnect-between-the-bishops-and-the-holy-see-allows-for-the-ravages-of-the-culture-of-death/ )
Fr Shenan J Boquet of Human Life International explains well in “Paul VI Spoke The Truth About Contraception, And Marriage.” what we have come to know as the Culture of Death and its deadly fruits. Paul VI predicted (1) an increase in conjugal infidelity, (2) a general lowering of morality, (3) a great lack of respect on the part of men for women, and (4) the unscrupulous governments use of contraception to force population control throughout the world.
Fr Boquet explains the following consequences of ignoring Pope Paul VI’s encyclical back in 1968:
“One only need consider as confirmation of Paul VI’s prophetic words the growing number of divorces across the globe; the steady decline of fertility rates; the obvious lowering of morality within society; marital and family violence; increase in sexual promiscuity and sexual diseases; trafficking of children; escalation of couples choosing to cohabitate; birth rates outside marriage skyrocketing; abortion as normative and utilized as birth control; acceptance and encouragement of homosexuality; pornography; and, as seen so diabolically now in China and around the globe, governmental coercion through population control policies.”
The contrast between ‘the ‘Way of Life’ in a sex-obsessed society and the ‘Way of Life’ within the confines of true love in a Traditional Marriage is well illustrated in a poem I wrote titled: “Sex: False Love or True Love.” See the following link:
This great indifference that they have for the life of another human being is quickly shown by their reaction when they learn that the female partner is pregnant. For many it is a ‘habit’. When the Pill fails ‘Plan B’ kicks into action–the innocent, helpless baby in the womb is quickly aborted, barbarically murdered as it is torn apart piece by piece by piece. A visit to www.unmaskingchoice.ca will confirm this.
Little do they realize that one day they will have to reckon with God. For this ‘way of life’ that is embedded in the ‘Culture of Death’. God’s warning is sobering and clear:
“Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the Kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, Nor the effeminate, nor liers with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the Kingdom of God.” ( 1 Corinthians 6: 9-11 )
Note: ‘fornication’ is sexual intercourse between a man and a woman who are not married to each other.
I spoke in detail about those who because of their unrepented ‘sins of the flesh’ will not inherit the ‘Kingdom of God’ and go to ‘Hell’. In the following link “Will The Pill Be Your One-Way Ticket To Hell For All Eternity” I relate to three people who saw Hell! Aftyer reading their testimonies it makes a lot of people who are obsessed with sex think seriously about their ‘Way of Life’.
Today we witness daily a fierce battle between the Culture of Life and the Culture of Death. Saint Pope John Paul 11 speaks about this in detail in his Encyclical ‘The Gospel of Life’. It is one of his most important writings.
In an interview with Ignatius Insight Dr Brennan explains how Pope John Paul 11 in his Encyclical ‘Humanae Vitae’ defined the Culture of Death: (http://www.ignatiusinsight.com/features2009/wbrennan_interview_july09.asp
“Whatever is opposed to ‘life’ itself, such as genocide, experimental exploitation of human beings, slavery, torture, mutilation rituals, and a host of other infamies. An ominous feature of this increasingly monolithic mindset, the Pope revealed, is ‘a war of the powerful against the weak’: a life which requires greater acceptance, love and care is considered useless, or held to be an intolerable burden, and is therefore rejected in one way or another.” (Cf: Exposing the Language of the Culture of Death:Ignatius Insight, July 10, 2009 )
Today the greatest genocide is the killing of the unborn babies throughout the world. The birth control PILL is the biggest killer. It gives the user a ‘killer mindset’. They want sex but ‘no baby’. Visit www. ALL.org to see how the PILL KILLS. It is legalized killing by ‘the powerful against the weak, the BIG against the small’. I call it ‘Aborterrorism’. It is the worst form of terrorism in the world today with Canada being one of the worst as it has absolutely no laws to protect unborn babies from being killed.
Canadian law declares the baby in the womb as ‘not human’ until it is born! (Cf: Section 223.1 of the Criminal Code) Anyone with a spec of brains knows that the baby in the womb IS a human being. Science today proves unequivocally that it is a human being from the moment of conception.
I have described the Culture of Death to show those who are ‘pro-choice’, to women who are on the PILL that they are supporting DEATH! Yes, death of the most innocent and helpless human beings.
Now let’s look at those who support the ‘Culture of Life’. The pro-lifer’s Pro-lifer’s ‘Way Of Life’ is in total contrast to the pro-choice mentality. They identify with a strong family life within the Traditional marriage. A baby is not regarded as a problem or a burden but as a blessing from God.
Pro-lifers have an ‘openness’ to having children and practice natural family planning. They don’t take the PILL. They are faithful to one another, husband and wife have a great respect for one another and exhibit self-control.
They don’t live with a ‘me, myself and I’ attitude, rather they show great altruism as their lives are ‘given’ for their family and others.
They truly love God and neighbor as God commands us to do.
Those whose sex life brings DEATH as a ‘way of life’ would do well to seriously consider what the Virgin Mary said to the three children when she appeared to them in Fatima, Portugal in 1917:
Mary said “More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.” ( cf: catholic tradition.org/Mary/Fatima3.htm )
Mary also showed the three children Hell. Lucy, Francisco and Jacinta were ages 10, 9 and 7 respectively when they were shown Hell. ( http://old.fatima.org/hell.html )
In many cases our ‘way of life’ is a strong indicator of our future destination after we die, Heaven OR Hell!
You can alter that course starting today by changing your ‘way of life’ to conform with God’s ‘way of life’ which will bring you true joy, peace and love in this life and in the next. Jesus can set you free from your ‘slavery to sin.”
36 If therefore the son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.
Jesus saith to him: ” I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No man cometh to the Father, but by me.” ( John 14:6 ) Jesus is offering you His ‘mercy’ now. Please turn to him!
I pray that the ‘way of life’ that you chose will be the one of true love,
Love for God and your neighbor, a ‘way of life’ that creates and preserves LIFE, does not destroy it.
