WFW. . . Who Wears the Millstone?

Written By Esthermay Bentley-Goossen on 22 October 2008

Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offenses will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
~ Luke 17:1-2

~~ * Please Stop! * ~~

The picture below could make you sick.

And, in my humble opinion, those Americans who support a Presidential Candidate who condones this are just as much to blame. . .

God will hold each of us individually accountable! . . . And YES! This is a repeated theme from last week's WordFilled Wednesday - Because God's Word is FILLED with Words about this abomination.

This is not a broken doll. This little boy was one of several third trimester children found in medical waste bags outside a legal abortion center in Houston, Texas in 1986. This little one was 14" long, weighed 2 lbs. - 2 oz., and was 30 weeks gestation (7 months old!) when he was killed. Today he would be 22 years old. I wonder who he would have voted for on this coming November 4th.

If you were born after 1972, consider yourself a Survivor of the Abortion Holocaust. ONE-THIRD of your generation has been killed by abortion in the United States of America.

Who wears the millstone?

Oh my god! I just clicked on your site looking for soup recipes. How I got here? ?????. I'm sick! At my own risk too. I had every reason not to vote for Obama. Make that every reason plus one. Or several million! Abortion is SICK SICK SICK SICK SICK SICK! There is a special place in heaven for those precious children.

How powerful is that photo. Amen for standing up for what is right! Hope you have a lovely Thursday!

Our Governement is debating this issue now.
That image is one which should be made very available...it is sickening but necessary to force us to face what we want to avoid is happening.
What a millstone.......

My prayer for this nation:
"...and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

Honey, you are so brave to stand up for the little ones this way.

I read all your "revoke my 501" blogs yesterday after I returned from a doctor's appointment.

You're inspiring me to write another column for the local paper. I'm tired of the media telling us (meaning conservatives) to give up, the election's in the bag (the blue one).

But mostly, dear friend, you're inspiring me to pray!

My Bible says:

"If...my people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place."
2 Chronicles 7:13-15

and "The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much." James 5:16b

I am horrified, but grateful that you shared. My heart is just broken for these babies. Their blood cries out from the ground and we are getting just about knee deep in it, figuratively speaking. It's so sad!

What a powerful WFW, Esthermay.

My prayer is that everyone who sees your photo WILL GET SICK! Our society must feel terrible about something in order to DO something about it. Blessings to you and I thank God for your bravery. You are an inspiration.

Nicely done!

Well said and there is forgiveness waiting for every woman who has been wronged into believing it is ok to take a life!

We must offer them the hope, joy and peace that can only come from our merciful and gracious Father!

Let the light dispel the darkness and FREEDOM RING! The truth will set us all free.

Love and blessings,

lori said...

I too am grateful for your boldly posting the truth about what abortion is...it is a SICK testament to what we become when we quit seeing life as precious....

It is sickening and sad..and sad the so many make that choice without EVER knowing the other options....

I join Patricia in the prayer...may it reach the ears of our God...

"If...my people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place." 2 Chronicles 7:13-15

peace to you...

Sean Hannity had a woman who was in her 20s who had several disabilities but indeed was alive in spite of a botched third trimester abortion. A saline or salt scouring abortion. The type where they inject saline into the womb and then induce labor hoping the infant will be dead --- these babies are literally burned alive.

When I was 17 and pregnant I went to a Pregnancy Resource Center where I saw picture of third term aborted babies. The saline babies were called, "Candy Apple Babies" because their skin looked like the glaze on candy apples. This woman on his show was born alive after salt water was injected into her mother's womb, she swallowed it and injested - they attempted to kill her and they did not succeed.

She survived. She survived. She survived. She was born alive. She is alive.

How can someone say allowing a baby born alive to live would negate the mother's decision to destroy and end that life?

A child born alive or still in the womb who is prematurely birthed or left to die intentionally is murdered. Shall we kill the elderly and the handicapped as non-contributing members of society? Isn't that why it is okay to kill unborn children - they don't work, they don't vote and they don't pay taxes...

The state of California prosecuted Scott Peterson for killing his wife AND for killing his UNBORN third term child, but sanctions medically sponsored killings in abortion clinics every day as does every state in this nation... Every state.

We have a double standard in this nation. God's Word provides the penalty of death for anyone who causes death to a child while it is still in its mother's womb. What does that say about abortion...?

When will this nation stop condoning what is immoral and calling what is moral evil?

When will this nation stop saying we cannot do anything to stop it?

When will this nation stop sending our children into the fire?

I agree... I agree. As for our government seeing those pictures... they have them. They know. They still do nothing. Unpopular Truth, but truth just the same. Thank you for sharing this... You are very brave.

There is a special place in heaven for these "little ones." No question! There is also a special place in HELL for those who support this!

Not to say God's grace and forgiveness does not extend to abotionists and those who condone it. Jill writes with wisdom and eloquence -- Never limit the power of salvation.

I'm with you, girl! Make people sick over this SIN. Make it clear that some things are more important than the stinkin' economy. If I have to hear one more "Christian" in my liberal church tell me the economy is more important than character and values, I am going to hurl! (I learned that word from my son! Am I hip or what?)
Keep up the awesome work.

Satan hates these photos. You hit a home run for Truth.

Americans must come to the point of SICK to see this abomination. Your election is proving people adore SIN and corruption. It is so sad for Americans abroad to watch.

There is little comparison between genocide and abortion. Yet the liberal left fights against the genocide and favors the abortion. The United States has lost its way.

Only God's amazing grace and perfect forgiveness can heal the United States at this point.

Rebecca said...

Echoing the prayers for our nation today. This is why I am so passionate about being involved at our local crisis pregnancy center.

Shabby Olde Potting Shed said...

God bless you for standing for this truth. I STAND ALONGSIDE YOU... AND "FOR" ALL THE CHILDREN.

Jen said...

Thank you for standing up for those helpless children. I think of people like my sister who so desprately wants to have children but can not because of cancer. There are people who throw them away with the trash!

Barbara said...

I left my computer to weep for a long time. I still have a full head of tears right behind my nose waiting to spill out. Abortion fills me right now with complete brokeness. I'm new to the blogging thing and I read many silly blogs that make me laugh. You do that too. But I applaud you for addressing this serious matter. You inspire me to do more to help McCain win this election. But what but pray. My husband reminds me everyday about the appointment of Supreme Court Justices by the next president. And here where I live, everyone is cult-like over this creature Obama. It's like he truly is the messiah. It makes me so sad and frightened. This man is truly a man against everything good in America. We've all heard him try to defend killing these little ones. I want to spend the next days in prayer.
What happened to LIFE ... LIBERTY...Pursuit of Happiness!
What difference does it make if mortgage rates are high or low if you're DEAD! Oh my,,,,, I am full of emotion. Why can't the entire country see this photo of little one.
I still weep.
Do I make any sense?

lambofHisflock said...

First, thank you for your kind words on my blog.... but your site. Wow! I am moved to tears. Thank you for your site and for spreading truth in a world that hates the truth.

elaine @ peace for the journey said...

I'm with everyone. Thanks for your boldness; however, I am concerned that we applaud it too much. Why do we wait for another to voice our hearts while refusing to enter the fray with our own? I stood in line today, with hundreds of other early voters; I kept my thoughts closely guarded while others were more vocal in their views.

I really don't like my choices, but the other night in Bible study, I told the women that I was a one issue woman this time around. I was voting for the unborn children in the world. Period. I was greeted with mix reactions but don't regret my voice in that moment. One day soon, we'll all be called to account for, not only our words, but our actions to back up our words.

May God grant us the grace and love to offer our hearts in pure and sacred measure...not in anger, but in truth.

Thank you for your thoughts.


Tracy said...

It is completely beyond comprehension that there can be any debate on this issue. Thank you for your boldness in revealing the truth behind this heartbreaking epidemic. May we pray for those who see this any other way.


Named Alicia said...

WOW! Thank you for standing up for the truth.

When I found out I was pregnant with my son, I was surprised. I was married, we just weren't planning to have children so early. The nurse said to me, "if you decide to keep the baby." I quickly set her straight. I said, "no, that is not an option." But, too often it is an option that is taken.

May we continue to pray for our nation and sound the alarm.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your week! Alicia

Havning a baby that was born early and having friends who've had babies as early as 5 months who are now beautiful children I greive for the babies abandoned by the world.

Holocaust from the Greek holo`kauston: holos meaning "completely" and kaustos meaning "burnt".

I just stumbled upon your blog. As I type this response tears are welling up in my eyes. I cry for all the children, I cry for all the mothers who, for what ever reason, thought they weren't strong enough to bring those lives into this world.

Thank you for reminding those who were born after 1972, that they are survivors of the abortion holocaust.

Hitler's terror reigned for 12 long years. How long will our terror reign?
