Build a bear birth certificate

The other day we went as a family to make a bear for Madilyne that we can use for future family pictures just as a remembrance of her. When we got to the end they gave us a birth certificate for our Madilyne bear. This is something that in the past never caused me much concern, but this time was different because I realized that the certificate actually says a birth certificate.

When did we as a society start taking things so flippantly? I know that it can be cute, but when you can get a "birth" certificate for something that was never alive, but you can't for a baby that was, we run into another area of complete and total apathy to the value of life that God has deemed important since the moment he formed them in the womb.

Psalm 139:13
New International Version (NIV)
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

Take notice, my friends of how the world continues to find ways to desensitize life without even knowing that they have done it, yet Satan is fully aware of the battle he is winning over souls each and every second, and I mean second.

1 Peter 5:8
New International Version (NIV)
8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

Children are a gift, a blessing, a creation, a miracle no matter how long they live inside or outside the womb.

  1. I like your blog it shows the absolute moral decline of our society. The apathy surrounding the unwillingness to call life, just that, life shows the enemy's influence on a depraved world. The very core of what it means to be made in the image of God is being attacked. The sanctity of life is that EVERY LIFE is sacred and a creation of God, precious, priceless and a true heavenly treasure.

    Redeemable only by the holy God.
