Jesus Christ Loves Babies

There were two men who lived in a certain town. One was good and the other evil. Both had many kittens.

The good man loved his cute, little, kittens. He would feed them, pat them, cuddle them and care for them. He delightfully spent many hours reading books and talking to others to determine how he could best care for his many kittens. All was well at the good man’s home. But alas, the town’s people despised him for his honourable actions.

Way across town, the evil man too had many kittens. But instead of caring and nurturing his kittens, he delighted in torturing them. Many different ways were invented to inflict cruelty on these young kittens. Some, he tortured by puncturing their skulls with sharp instruments before sucking out their brains. Others were twisted, pulled and dismembered by sharp instruments into tiny pieces. Still others were injected with poisons, resulting in a long, slow and painful death. Nothing was too evil for this man in his treatment of the kittens.

Strangely, the town’s people, rather than being horrified at the evil man’s actions, would encourage the man’s evil by bringing to his home, with much excitement, more kittens to torture. These too he would torture with new methods, involving severe and excruciating burns, starvation or drowning in potent chemical solutions.

What was to be done?
Why was evil being called good and good evil?
Who had bewitched the town’s people?
Who had blinded the eyes of the people so that only injustice was done?

Prevention is better than cure

For this is what Jesus, the Lord of all Creation says:

I created each child.

“For you [Jesus] created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” Ps 139:13

“Your [Jesus] hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands.”  Ps 119:73

“This is what the LORD says - your redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, the maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself.” Isaiah 44:24

“My frame was not hidden from you [Jesus] when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together.” Psalm 139:15

“You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in your providence watched over my spirit.” Job 10:12

I own each child.

“The earth is the LORD’s and everything in it. The world and all it’s people belong to him.” Ps 24:1

I will not forget each child.

“Can a a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you!” Isaiah 49:15

“Even if my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will hold me close.” Ps 27:10

I will hold you to account and judge you for how you care for each child.

“Do not murder.” Exodus 20:13

“For the same God who said ‘You must not commit adultery,’ also said, ‘you must not murder.’ So if you murder someone but do not commit adultery you have still broken God’s law.” 
James 2:11

“But the Lord abides forever, he has established His throne for judgement, and He will judge the world in righteousness; he will execute judgment for the peoples with equity. The Lord also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.”  
Ps 9:8

“Let all creation rejoice before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his faithfulness.” 
Ps 96:13

“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness.” 
Rom 1:18

“They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful, they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents, they have no understanding; no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.” 
Rom 1:29-32

"Train up a child in the way he should go,

and when he is old he will not depart from it."
Proverbs 22:6

Only be on your guard and diligently watch yourselves, so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen, and so that they do not slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and grandchildren. Deut 4:9

Teach them to your children, speaking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deut 11:19

For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him. Genesis 18:19

Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
22Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, His body, of which He is the Saviour. 24Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
25Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her 26to sanctify her, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27and to present her to Himself as a glorious church, without stain or wrinkle or any such blemish, but holy and blameless.
28In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.29Indeed, no one ever hated his own body, but he nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church. 30For we are members of His body.a
31“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”b32This mystery is profound, but I am speaking about Christ and the church. 33Nevertheless, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. Ephesians 5

Repent. Turn back to God.

“God overlooked people’s ignorance about such things in earlier times, but now he commands everyone everywhere to repent of their sins and turn to him.” Acts 17:30

“If we confess our sins to God, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.” 1 Jn 1:9

“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Receive forgiveness.

“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness and with the mouth he confesses resulting in salvation.” Rom 10:9

“Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.” Rev 22:14

"Let the little children come to me and do not stop them, for such is the Kingdom of heaven."
