You have heard perhaps a certain ‘baby doe’ was found on the coast of Massachusetts.
A four year old girl’s dead body was discovered in a trash bag, dead. Circumstances are yet unknown, (time will prove the darkness) but a young girl, a baby as it were, cast aside as useless, mere trash, a discard of somebody’s ill will. Or maybe she just crawled inside the bag looking for a place to sleep…
Are you outraged? To you who see no difference between man or beast, to you who do not see a man or woman created in the image of God, to you who dismiss the spirit of man which separates him from the animal, why are you outraged?
If the human life ceases at death, and a baby girl is just as ‘dead’ as a run over raccoon, if she has no spirit, why are you outraged? Who are you to place more value on her life as opposed to a dead coyote?
What basis for rational thought have you used to determine the value of her life?
A young girl had her life ended by hearts of treachery, casted aside as if she were but a bottle cap or a used q-tip. A young girl found in a trash bag!
So why pray tell should a heathen rage? Why? Do we rage when we see the turkey run over and left alone for the crows to pick clean? Do we rage when the black snake ravages the eggs in the bird’s nest? No, we do not rage. We may show disappointment, disdain, frustration, but no, rage is not the word used to describe our emotions when we run over a grasshopper with the lawnmower.
The human spirit rages at such devildom because we know, we know of a fact man is not an animal. We know instinctively that her little life had more value than many sparrows, and we hate, we despise the fact that another human could be so calculated and cold to snuff the breath from a young baby girl with a life of unfulfilled hope.
Her hope was ended, her body was dismissed as trash, and the heart of man cries out for truth to be told, while the vultures could not care and continue their festivities and revelries, oblivious of the millions of people crying out to God against such wickedness.
Yes, we (unbelievers, skeptics, infidels, fools, believers) all know there must be a day of reckoning, even if we hide from ourselves, there must be an account to make right all the injustices of man.
We rage because we know the heart of man is not the heart of a horse. We rage because we know, unlike the pit bull, man has no excuse for mauling its own. We rage because a young girl found lifeless and worthless is wrong on every level. We rage because the heart of man acts like an animal, and we rage because even the slow of heart to believe knows that man is not an animal.
And we equally know what scripture says to such acts: that the heart is deceitful and desperately wicked. Putting a young girl in a trash bag, dead, is pretty much desperately wicked, but it is equally wicked to say ‘there is no God.’ Imagine the rage that a Creator does not act upon when man says there is no ultimate difference between the life of a man or the life of a walrus. He is oh so patient.
So why be outraged at the death of a girl found in a trash bag? Our hearts condemn us and provide the answer, but YOUR thoughts on God are the best answer.
