Genesis 2:7 - KJV - "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."

Life is from God. There are some subjects that I never feel a need to deal
with in an expansive way in these Devotionals because the issues are so
black and white. I have been asked many times over the last 33 months on
what I felt about abortion and that hotly debated subject. My friend, as
much as that issue has become politicized, it is a non-issue in my mind
since the Bible clearly says that life is from God. It is a precious gift
from God, and only God has the right to say when it is over.

Just so there is no misunderstanding, life begins at conception. At that
miraculous point, even in it's most basic stage, it has a God-breathed soul and NO ONE
but God has the right to say when that life should end. God has given us
free-will to make our own decisions, so for those who do not agree with
this point of view, that is your God-given right. However, this is not my
opinion, it is God's opinion. You either accept His Word for what it is,
or treat it like some book of stories and nice teachings. That is why those
who live in rebellion to God MUST trivialize His Word. His Word is
absolute TRUTH and to live in opposition to the Bible, you have to reject

It was touching to watch the Funeral Mass for John Cardinal O'Connor
several years ago as his lifetime view on the sanctify of life was reiterated.
Within a few seconds, there came a thunderous applause, followed by a standing ovation.
Cardinal O'Connor lived and taught that it is God who gives life and only God can
take life. Abortion is murder. Even staunch supporters of abortion rights
had to stand in the midst of the resounding ovation for life! My friends, let me
say again. The sanctity of life is NOT a political is a spiritual issue!!!!
It is a pillar in our spiritual house that has been compromised and destroyed over the last 35
years. Legislating the right to have abortions was a natural flow from the
rebellious lifestyles we accepted in our society that caused so many unwanted pregnancies.

As this pillar has been crumbling before our very eyes, it has allowed the
pillar of marriage to weaken and crumble as well. The moral decay in our society has
infiltrated every segment of our society, even to the highest echelons of government as
our previous President was been made into a national joke, a former speaker of the house
has divorced his wife for a woman he had carried on a long-term adulterous affair with,
and people In our nations largest city actually accepted that it was OK for their
former mayor to have a girlfriend on the side. These are perfect examples of why we must follow
God's Word and be in prayer for those in leadership over us. Listen to me,
the moral decay of our society is NOT a political is a spiritual

It has been my long standing personal philosophy that the only way to see
legitimate change in our society is by seeing hearts changed and lives
transformed by the power of at a time! I have no illusions of
trying to save the world, only God can do that. The job He has given to me
during this season of my life is to be faithful to those He places in my
path each day through this ministry. That is why each day I do my best to
warn you, challenge you, encourage you, rebuke you, and support you in being
all that God has called you to be during this life. Reversing the moral
decay of this society is only going to happen as each one of us wakes-up
each day, lives our life in a way that is pleasing and acceptable to God,
and serves Him to the best of our ability.

Let me say a quick word to those of you, men and women, who have lived
through the tragedy of an abortion. What has happened is in the past. Satan will
try to use something like that to deter you from serving God, trying to convince you
that you are not worthy, etc. That is a lie from the father of lies. God loves you, will
forgive you, and wants you to move on. Your best way to get beyond this or
any sin in your life is by serving Him with all you have from this day
forward. He has saved you, forgiven you, extended His grace to your life
because He loves you and wants you to enjoy the peace and joy only He can

I love you and care about you deeply. I know the hurt many of you have
carried with you, some for many years because of things you have done in
your past. Many of you have either had, or fathered a baby that was
aborted Today is the day to deal with it once and for all. Trust His Word that says
"if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our
sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." Now is the time to put your sin
behind you, realize God has forgiven you, and move forward. God has a
perfect plan for the rest of your life. It was God that gave you life, and
it is God that will determine when it is over. Until that time, our purpose
is to serve and glorify Him each day. Life is precious, so treat each day
for what it is...a gift from our Heavenly Father!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
