A sermon preached at the Fundamentalist Baptist Tabernacle of Los Angeles Lord’s Day Morning, September 24, 2000

“Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed”

(Genesis 9:6).

            Thirty-six million American children have been torn to shreds, boiled like writhing sardines, or had holes driven into the backs of their heads, their brains sucked out by hollow needles, in the past twenty-five years.  More children died like this in the “land of the free and the home of the brave” than were killed in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and Viet Nam all combined. Countless thousands of these unwanted American children were in the ninth month.

            I sent this memo to Reform Party presidential candidate Patrick J. Buchanan last week:  

Dear Pat:


Here is a bombshell which I have not seen reported anywhere in national news.  The sizes of the cities are estimates, but I think these figures prove that abortion on demand has created illegal immigration.  


Here’s how my figuring works: thirty-six million babies have been killed through abortion on demand since Roe vs. Wade was enacted in 1973.  Twenty-six million illegal aliens have come across the borders to take the jobs that our own black and white young people would have taken if they had not been aborted.  To apply Ross Perot’s statement in a different context, “There was a giant sucking sound from the north” produced by abortion.  That’s why the Hispanic people came in the 80’s and 90’s but not before.


Now, I am listing the cities which have been removed totally, every last person, since Roe vs. Wade, by abortion on demand.  The equivalent of every one of these cities has been removed from North America by the abortionist’s knife.  Here they are:


New York City, New York               8 million
Los Angeles, California                       4 million
Chicago, Illinois 3 million
Miami, Florida 1 million
San Diego, California 1 million
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 1 million
Detroit, Michigan 1 million
Boston, Massachusetts 1 million
Washington, District of Columbia 1 million
Atlanta, Georgia 1 million
San Jose, California 1 million
Houston, Texas 1 million
Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas 1 million
Phoenix, Arizona 1 million
San Francisco, California 3/4 million
Jacksonville, Florida 3/4 million
Baltimore, Maryland 3/4 million
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 3/4 million
Las Vegas, Nevada 3/4 million
Seattle, Washington 1/2 million
Denver, Colorado 1/2 million
New Orleans, Louisiana 1/2 million
Salt Lake City, Utah 1/2 million
Kansas City, Missouri 1/2 million
Nashville, Tennessee 1/2 million
Cincinnati, Ohio 1/2 million
Portland, Oregon          1/2 million
Memphis, Tennessee   1/2 million
Jackson, Mississippi 1/2 million
Little Rock, Arkansas 1/2 million
Springfield, Missouri 1/2 million
                           TOTAL 36 million


Figures don’t lie.  You can’t take that many cities out of North America without it creating a giant job-vacuum, sucking twenty-six million Hispanics, and others, to fill in for the thirty-six million blacks and whites who were aborted.  PAT - EZOLA - THIS BASIC INFORMATION NEVER MAKES IT TO THE MEDIA.  NAFTA, MOST FAVORED STATUS FOR CHINA, ETC. MAY GET BIGGER APPLAUSE, BUT THE ABOVE IS AMERICA’S NUMBER ONE PROBLEM. WITHOUT FIXING IT, NOTHING CAN SAVE US.

             Don’t blame the poor Hispanics, Asians or Filipinos who came here.  Blame the fat-cat abortionists who created a job-vacuum that sucked these poor people across our borders, and has created as many problems for them sociologically as it has for the rest of us! 

            One day a pro-life worker came to our church carrying a little brown box.  As I spoke to him, he uncovered the box, reached in and placed the body of a beautiful girl gently into my hands.  He told me that her body weighed eight pounds.  I shudder at the thought of it this morning, though it happened nearly twenty years ago.  She was one of the thirty-six million. 

            In the Noahic Covenant, God gave a law which has never been repealed:

 “Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed” (Genesis 9:6).

            Abraham Lincoln believed that this law applied to the carnage of the Civil War, that God was requiring blood for blood.  Lincoln said:  

Yet if God wills (the Civil War) shall continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman’s two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn by the lash (from the backs of slaves) shall be paid by another drawn with the sword.  As was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said, “The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.”

               (Abraham Lincoln, Second Inaugural Address)


            I agree with Lincoln.  His words also apply to the Abortion Holocaust:  “Every drop of blood…shall be paid by another.” And we are being judged right now for killing off our own American children.


I.  The Bible teaches that God will punish a nation which afflicts fatherless children.  Babies killed by abortion are fatherless children.

             The Bible says: 

 “Ye shall not afflict any…fatherless child.  If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry; And my wrath shall wax (grow) hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless"”(Exodus 22:22-24).

The ideas in these verses are repeated over and over, throughout the Bible.  Cruden’s Concordance lists forty-three times that God says He will judge a nation and a people who oppress the fatherless.  Here is just one of God’s threats:

“And I shall come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against…those that oppress the… fatherless… and fear not me, saith the Lord” (Malachi 3:5).

 As Abraham Lincoln said:  “Every drop of blood…shall be paid by another.”

 “Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed” (Genesis 9:6).

We are already experiencing the heavy judgments of God for murdering thirty-six million innocents.  And the judgments are only beginning.  God is judging America for slaughtering thirty-six million babies:  

1.    God has sent a curse on every American President since abortion became legal.  The curse on our Presidents began when prayer was removed from the public schools in 1963.  It deepened with the abortion decision in 1973. Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush and Clinton have all experienced shame and tragedy of one sort or another as a result of God’s disfavor.  “Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34).

 2.  God has sent twenty-six million aliens, many illegally, across our borders into the job vacuum created by abortion. Eventually they will overcome and replace the culture, language and religion of the Americans who condoned the slaughter, who failed to rise up and put a stop to it.

3.  God will send a curse on the generation of Americans now forty to sixty years old.  They let it happen without stopping it.  In their eighties, they will pay dearly for this sin.  The minorities who are rapidly replacing them will not vote to give them expensive Medicare and Social Security.

“Pull the plug on those old white people,” the new majority will say in the voting booth, and the plug will be pulled.  White Americans, especially, face a very unpleasant and dangerous old age as a result of their selfishness and complacency regarding the American Holocaust.  God is bound to punish them by His own law, “Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed.”  I can hear the new majority of recent immigrants saying these words in the near future:  “Pull the plug. There are too many of those old Americans.  Why should we pay for them?”

Remember that God said,

“Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed” (Genesis 9:6).

 Remember that God promises forty-three times in the Bible to judge and punish a nation that harms fatherless children.  And America is not escaping His judgment. 


II.  God removes “natural affection” from a self-centered, money-grubbing people.

             The Bible says that God “gave up” on the Roman world (Romans 1:24,26,28).  As a result of God giving up on them (Romans 1:28), these people became “fornicators” (Romans 1:29), “proud” (Romans 1:30), “without understanding” - incapable of telling right from wrong (Romans 1:31).  What a picture of white people in America today! This is exactly the character of the average white American!

            But there is one more characteristic of those who are given up by God - they are “without natural affection” and “unmerciful” (Romans 1:31).  What does it mean to be “without natural affection, unmerciful”?

            Ellicott’s comment on “without natural affection” tells us it refers to,

 The affection founded upon natural relationship - e.g. between parent and child…we may remember that infanticide (baby murder) (was) very common at this period.

               (Ellicott’s Commentary on the Whole Bible,

                 vol. VII, Zondervan, n.d., p. 209).


            Then here is Reinecker’s comment in the Linguistic Key to the Greek New Testament.  Reinecker, quoting Godet, says that the Greek Word translated “without natural affection” means,

 Unloving, without tenderness.  It refers to the lack of the feelings of natural tenderness, as seen in a mother who exposes or kills her child.

               (Fritz Reinecker and Cleon Rogers,

                 Linguistic Key to the Greek New Testament,

                 Zondervan, 1980, p. 351).


            As God has given up Americans to a reprobate mind (Romans 1:28) they have become “without natural affection, unmerciful,” as seen in a mother who exposes or kills her child (Reinecker, op.cit.).  The same Greek word for “without natural affection” is given in the prophetic passage of II Timothy, chapter three.  We are told:

“In the last days perilous times shall come.  For men shall be lovers of their own selves…without natural affection… fierce” (II Timothy 3:1-3).


It should be noticed that these people think they are Christians (3:5), but are actually lost because they have experienced false conversions (3:7).

            These lost “evangelicals” and other so-called “Christians” are “without natural affection…fierce.”  Ellicott says that they have no regard for “the welfare of those connected with them by blood” (Ibid. vol. VIII., p. 233). 

            Reinecker gives this comment on “without natural affection”:

 The verb…denotes primarily and properly the love between parents and children…unloving, without  family affection, without love of kindred…(Ibid., p. 644).

The word “fierce” means “savage” (Ibid.).

            That is the way most Americans are today.  They are “fierce,” “savage,” “without love for children,” “without love for a child in their own womb”! 

            Have you ever noticed how strange these women’s faces have become?  Have you ever noticed that there is the look of the evil queen who tried to murder Snow White in the early Disney movie?  Have you noticed the leering eyes and sneering, frightening smile of Senator Dianne Feinstein, Attorney General Janet Reno, Hillary Clinton and other evil women who promote the American Holocaust?  Have you noticed that their very faces mirror their child-hating, fierce, bloody, unnatural hearts?  Have you ever noticed the cold, dead eyes and wicked smirk, the lifeless, heartless, murderously cruel face of Senator Edward Kennedy?  I cannot think of a more evil man living in the world - and it shows in his eyes and in his face - especially now that he grows older.  It is the face of the vain and wicked queen who sent the hunter to murder Snow White!  It is the face of Adolf Hitler!  The eyes are exactly the same! 

            Tell somebody I said that about these pro-abortionists!  Leave it on the tape - and put it on the Internet!  

“The shew of their countenance (the expression of their faces) doth witness against them” (Isaiah 3:9).


            God Himself has removed “natural affection” from the hearts of murderous pro-abortionists across America.  I saw the faces of thousands of them on television at the Democratic Convention.  I saw the faces of the pro-murdering Perot people who left the Reform Party.  I see their sneering, frightening faces on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and on Foothill Blvd. in La Crescenta and in Sunland.  They are monsters!  They are neo-Nazis.  They have no natural affection for the thirty-six million whose blood drenches America.

            We drove through New Mexico, Texas and Arizona two years ago.  I felt a dark shadow.  I felt something wrong - all through the Southwest.  What was it that I felt? It was the absence of children - the absence of enough children to populate thirty-one of the largest cities in our nation.  I could literally feel their absence.

            All up and down the streets where I live are comfortable homes.  They are beautiful homes.  They are big homes, with swimming pools, and room for horse stables. People with money live in these homes.  But there is a strange quietness and an odd, unnatural feeling.  What is it?  What’s wrong?  The children are gone!  They have been murdered in the American Holocaust! 

            We took a ride on a gondola down through the canals of Long Beach last week - my wife and mother-in-law, with the boys and me.  It was like riding through the canals of Venice, Italy.  The houses on either side of the canals were exquisite - million-dollar homes - beautiful almost beyond imagination.  But there was that strange quietness and that odd, unnatural feeling again.  What is it?  What’s wrong?  The children are gone! They have been murdered in the American Holocaust!

            If you live way out somewhere in a smaller enclave, or in the Deep South, you may not notice it.  But I noticed it in Denver, Colorado, and in Atlanta, Georgia and, yes - even in Jacksonville, Florida recently.  You can literally feel that something is wrong - something is out of whack - something terrible has happened.  And something horrible has happened - thirty-six million are gone!  They have been murdered in the American Holocaust! 

            Young person, you were born in this time.  You have grown up during the slaughter.  You are one of the few who wasn’t killed.  And you feel it.  The X Generation, your generation, has grown up feeling unwanted - because most kids in your generation were not wanted! 

            You feel the pain of divorce.  You feel the pain of drunkenness and drugs among the older generation.  They have let you down.  They promised you a better world, but instead they murdered the kids that should have been your playmates and neighbors.  The girl you should have married - they killed her.  The boy that you dreamed of - they put a needle in the back of his head and sucked out his brains - and now you will never know what it would have been like to hold hands with him and walk on the beach at sunset. 

            Young person - they promised you a paradise - but they gave you a nightmare!  They gave you a cold, cruel, gray, grubby, nasty world where it’s hard to live and almost impossible to be happy. 

            Young person, what can you do?  How can you make it in this evil time?  You can’t really turn to them - your parents, the older generation.  You already know that they can’t help you.  You know it instinctively, intuitively.  They can’t help you.  They don’t even know how horrible they’ve made it for you.  They don’t even understand you - and you know it!

            So, what can you do, young person?  I’ll tell you what you can do.  You can hide in the house of God!  Hide in the house of God!  Come and hide with us until the storm, until the Holocaust is past!  Come and hide with us under the Blood of Christ in this house of God!

            Athaliah had a face like Edward Kennedy, like the evil step-mother Queen in Snow White.  Athaliah the Queen was a cruel baby murderer.  The Bible says:

 “Athaliah…arose and destroyed all the seed royal (she killed all the children she could).  But Jehosheba…took Joash..and stole him from among the king’s sons which were slain; and they hid him…so that he was not slain.  And he was…hid in the house of the Lord six years.  And Athaliah did reign over the land” (II Kings 11:1-3).


            Come and let us hide you in the house of God.  The evil queen rules our land. She tried to get you.  Thank God she didn’t.  Young person, somehow you escaped. Somehow you were born to the right mother.  Somehow, thank God for her, somehow she didn’t kill you.  You ought to call her on the phone this afternoon and thank her for not killing you!  Somehow, you lived.  And by God’s mercy you’re here this morning, in our church. 

           Now come and let us hide you in the house of God until the evil queen is dead, until the Holocaust is past and we are safe in a better world - in the kingdom of God. Come, let us hide you from the evil. 

“One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.  For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me…”

(Psalm 27:4-5).

          Come into our church from the harshness and ugliness and meanness of the world.  Come into our church and we will love you and we will help you.  And you can hide here from the cold and lonely world they have created. 

            And you can find Christ here. 

 “And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert (a shelter) from the tempest” (Isaiah 32:2).

          That is Jesus, the Son of God.  He is a hiding place from the wind.  He is a shelter from the tempest.  He died on the cross to pay for your sins.  He arose literally from the dead. He is alive in Heaven.  You can come to Him.  Jesus is a hiding place from the wind of judgment.  Jesus is a shelter from the tempests of life.  

How oft in the conflict, when pressed by the foe,

I have fled to my Refuge and breathed out my woe;

How often, when trials like sea billows roll

Have I hidden in Thee, O Thou Rock of my soul.

Hiding in Thee, Hiding in Thee,

Thou blest Rock of ages, I’m hiding in Thee.

               (“Hiding in Thee”

    by William O. Cushing, 1823-1902).
