If God only Knew

"For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts,
murders, adulteries, fornication, thefts,
false witness, blasphemies."...Matthew 15:19.

If only God knew
a man's heart,
that it is deceitful
and desperately wicked;
then God would know
why this world is such a mess:
God would know why Isis is saying
they want to kill us
because we are unbelievers in their God,
the God they believe is telling them
to kill us if we don't believe in their God,
and we that choose to believe in Abortion, (not me)
are no stranger to killing,
as we end the lives of innocent, unwanted babies,
and our Supreme Court says it is OK
because they made it legal at our urging,
so since then we have waged war with innocent babies
by saying the law says it is OK to kill
your own baby in America; not that much different
from Isis, this shedding of innocent blood.
Killing is killing, isn't it?
And of course God knows, and wants us to know,
that He knows our hearts and has given us a Way
to know the Truth and a Way to make our Lives
Right with God.

"The heart is deceitful above all things, and
desperately wicked; Who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9.

Above is a description of our heart before Jesus,
below is a description of our heart after Jesus...

"For with the heart one believes to righteousness,
and with the mouth confession is made to salvation."
Romans 10:10.
"For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall
be saved."...Romans 10:13.

In the word of God, it tells us to choose Life:
"I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against
you, that I have set before you life and death,
blessing and cursing; therefore choose life,
that both you and your descendants may live."
Deuteronomy 30:19.
"Keep yourself far from a false matter; do not
kill the innocent and righteous.  For I will not
justify the wicked."...Exodus 23:7.

Here are some Salvation scriptures:
"Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow
of wickedness, and receive with meekness the
implanted word, which is able to save your souls."
James 1:21.
"For God so Loved the world that He gave His only
begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him will not
perish but have everlasting life."...John 3:16.

"In Mere Christianity, 1952, C.S. Lewis wrote:
The Eternal Being, who knows everything and who
created the whole universe, became not only a man,
but (before that) a baby, and before that a fetus
in a woman's body."...page 369, "America's God and
Country" by William J. Federer.

This is a small part of a speech by Mother Teresa
in 1994 when she was 83:
"Jesus died on the cross because that is what it
took for Him to do good for us-to save us from our
selfishness in sin...to show us that we to must
be willing to give up everything to do God's will..
But I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today
is abortion because it is a war against the child,
a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by
the mother herself and if we accept that a mother
can kill even her own child, how can we tell
other people not to kill one another?"..."America's
God and Country", page 584.

"Therefore submit to God, Resist the devil and he
will flee from you."...James 4:7...this is God's
expectations for you and me.
