Tiller the “Killer” off the Hook….for Now, That Is!

Therefore the law is powerless, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; therefore perverse judgment proceeds. "Look among the nations and watch; be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you.” --- Habakkuk 1:4, 5

George Tiller was found not guilty by a Kansas jury of violating state laws regarding late term abortions last week. George is a “specialist” of a unique breed. His specialty? He murders unborn babies that are near the end of the pregnancy term and about to be born! There are not many of his breed to be found in the United States, but then what is the difference – it is murder whether you do it Tiller “style” or you exterminate a human in the embryonic stage which has been given approval recently by the president of the United States!

So, Tiller the “Killer” is off the hook for now, that is. Want to do an interesting moment of speculation? Try this for size – what do you suppose this man is going to say to God when it is his moment to stand before Him and have to answer for years of the “shedding of innocent blood?” You know, the persons he intentionally murdered before they were born – those persons for whom God had a high and holy purpose after birth?

Each of us, of course, will have our moment in answering to God for what we have done with our lives on earth. It will be under one of two conditions -- either we are accepted because during our earthly existence we saw we were sinners and stand condemned, but repented of our sins and now have been forgiven due to faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord OR we stand before God condemned because we never did repent of our sins and rejected God's love in His Son, Jesus!

Will Tiller the "Killer" repent of this madness? There is that possibility, but it is a remote one at best. There is something about mass murdering practice that hardens the heart – one becomes calloused and the seared conscience is the bitter result – no feeling whatsoever when unborn humans one after another are brutally mutilated and murdered!

Looking at the countenance of George Tiller brings to mind the same look on the countenance of others in the past who involved themselves in mass murder policies and practices – the likes of an Adolph Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, Joseph Goebbels, Joseph Stalin, and Mao Zedong come to mind.

It certainly is imperative to pray for the man, that if possible, he does indeed come to repentance and publicly renounce the practice of which he has been a violent part for years. But if he won’t repent, then may God stop him by whatever means necessary from continuing in his habit of murdering unborn children!

But while praying for the "killer" may we also add members of a jury that saw nothing wrong in what he has been doing and those "mothers" (term used very loosely) who paid him big bucks to murder the little ones in their wombs!

Yes, Tiller the "Killer" is off the hook for now, but that will change – let’s pray that it will be very soon!

"For if you thoroughly amend your ways and your doings, if you thoroughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbor, if you do not oppress the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place, or walk after other gods to your hurt, then I will cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever. Behold, you trust in lying words that cannot profit. --- Jeremiah 7:5-8
