Saving lives while killing babies. It makes no sense

Police have reported that hundreds of people have breached the lockdown rules across the country.

In his media conference Dr Bloomfield said there had been 291 breaches of the CDEM Act or the Health Act and that 16 people have been prosecuted with 263 warnings and 10 youth referrals.

Police in Dunedin are continuing to spot surfers at the city’s beaches despite orders last week that made it clear such activity was prohibited. The message was simple – stay at home, save lives, a police spokesperson said.

It is plain and simple.  Our society does not value babies’ lives as it does those of older people.

The birds don’t like traffic

Another thing that has become very obvious is the amount of birdsong you hear around the garden and neighbourhood.  It is significantly more than pre-lockdown.  My working theory is that the amount of traffic is to credit for this.  After all, there are so many more people outside actually walking.  Perhaps also some air traffic can be credited.

It’s amazing to hear.

Prophecy of Scripture

12 So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have. 13 I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body, 14 because I know that I will soon put it aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me. 15 And I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things.

16 For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”[a] 18 We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.

19 We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. 21 For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.  — NIV
