  1. This well-known and oft quoted verse surely must cause the evolutionary moralist a dilemma.

    After all, the evolutionary moralist posits that sacrifice is a way of ensuring the survival of your genes. This is the reason why, we’re told, a mother will push her child out of the way of a speeding bus – thus preserving her genealogical lineage.

    But wouldn’t she also preserve her genes if she simply let her child get run over? She would still be alive, meaning her genes still exist. And you can further posit that she would likely have other children living to carry on her line, or could even have more children to replace the one she lost.

    But the simple answer as to why the mother jumps in front of the bus is that she loves her child. Evolution plays no part. God created her to care and to nurture and to protect and that surely involves her willingly parting with her own life if it means the survival of her child at risk.

    Jesus is our Great Friend. We are, quite literally, eternally indebted to Him.

  2. I am thankfull for all who have given their life in the name of freedom, but most of all I am eternally grateful to my Lord and Savior for giving His life so I may live.
