Enough is enough.
I am so tired of how many hopeful, adoptive couples out there are throwing God's name around to justify themselves and their actions.
It's about time for that kind of bulls**t to stop.
Do these people really, truly believe the crap they are spouting in their blogs, their online groups? Are they really so blinded that they think God's goal is to separate a mother and child so they can have a baby to call their own?
How can anyone think God is up there pointing his mighty finger at us . . . this woman must suffer a lifetime of grief and loss so this other woman can be happy . . . this innocent child will forever have identity and abandonment issues so that this "great" Christian can have the son or daughter she has prayed for.
I don't believe it for a minute. God isn't up there smiling proudly down on those who proclaim his name with such great pride while hoping desperately for an expectant mom to find herself without the support she deserves so maybe - just maybe - she will decide to surrender her baby into their willing arms.
Do you really think he sees great glory in the fact that hopeful adoptive couples will hold fund-raisers to collect money for their adoption and yet NEVER even think to do a bake sale or hot dog roast or silent auction so a mother and child can stay together?
Where does that represent God's work? Where have Christians ever learned that it is better to collect for ourselves and our own selfish needs instead of reaching out and helping those in need. In what part of Sunday School or Bible Class was it taught to collect the assets needed to separate a family over keeping them together.
I must have missed that day. Becaue my recollection of the lessons I have been taught over the years differs so greatly from the "self-entitiled" views of the "God-Loving" hopeful adoptive couples who preach daily the greatness of their actions for wanting to take a baby from it's mother.
And right about now is when these wonderful "God-Loving" couples will start dishing out their half-qouted verses from the bible. You know the ones - carefully absent of the remaining verses that do not support their argument. Placed just right to further their own beliefs of how great they are for ignoring the needs of another to fulfill their own desires.
I don't buy it anymore nor will I continue to stay silent to those who hide behind God and his great name in order to carry on with their selfish natures.
If you cared at all about God's will, you would be reaching out to help more women who face crisis pregnancies. You would hold back your judgement and help them however you could because that is what God wants from all of us.
You would be eager and willing to offer the helping hand they need. Take in those that are homeless. Hold your little fund-raisers for those who are poor. Support those who need an extra shoulder to lean on.
Instead of praying to God for a mother to be desperate and frightened enough to lose her child, you would be praying day and night for him to offer her the strength to find her way and you the ability to help however you can to keep a family together.
God isn't, and never has been, about selfish needs. He is about kindness and caring. About helping those less fortunate than you and giving of yourself without judgement or hope for some reward in return.
