13 Days...

Terri Schiavo died today, 13 days after her feeding tube was removed. Michael Schiavo, her husband...let that sink in for a second...her husband who made a marriage vow before God to be with her for better or worse...let her starve for 13 days until she died. Michael Schiavo just unplugged her and walked away, as if that makes it less of a murder. Michael Schiavo didn't even let the family be with her when she died (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7293186/?GT1=6305). 13 days. Thirteen Days...and she died alone. I think I'm going to throw up. These last few days have been dark, seeing that I've been closely following this whole series of events...I'd like to apologize to those of you who usually read my blog for it's deep or funny content. None the less, this is reality and the reality is that we live in an excessively sinful world full of horrible people who murder defenseless cripples and infants and their own wives. Who's kidding who? Mankind, and I mean every single one of us, especially myself, deserves to suffer eternally and infinitely for our wickedness. In these dark hours remember:

"For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.
So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." 2 Corinthisans 5:14-21

Although I really want to hate Micheal Schiavo I am faced with another reality; I am Micheal Schiavo. Not literally mind you, but my sin (among other things my hatred of Micheal Schiavo, if you like that irony) put Christ, who was infinitely more innocent than Terri Schiavo, to death. Before a holy God I am equally as guilty as Micheal is, and only by God's grace do I have any hope of escaping my wretchedness. Sobering thoughts indeed. Mankind is wicked but God is certainly Glorious! Until next time,
