Genesis 3:22-23 [says]: “And the Lord God said, ‘The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.’ So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden.” In this biblical passage, human beings have disobeyed God, opening their eyes to sin and death. I often think of what Adam and Eve were truly like prior to the fall, and I have caught a Glimpse of Eden through the eyes of my beautiful daughter Chloe.
Chloe was born in 2003 with a diagnosis of Down syndrome, and early on my family was met with many negative stares and remarks which would lead a lost culture to believe that Chloe was defective. Chloe quickly changed my perspective on what perfection and true beauty look like, and at age 10 she has planted more positive seeds than the vast majority of people do in a 70-80 year lifetime. Chloe is blessed with a level of purity, innocence, joy, and unconditional love that cannot be measured and reflect an image of human beings before they defied God. During my 20-year law enforcement career I responded to and dealt with the dark side of humanity filled with lies, depravity, anger, and death. I know personally the incredible things human beings can accomplish when they accept Jesus Christ, and I also am very aware of the intense destruction people can cause when they reject God and follow the deception of the serpent Satan. Genesis 3:4-5: “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
Chloe is a human being made in God’s image who is not capable of malice, evil, hatred, or intentional destruction, and her connection to God is as clear as five bars on a cell phone while many of us are lucky if we can access one bar of Godly reception from the noise and interference of a misguided society. Chloe was recently featured on and in a book titled BRILLIANT SOULS and the evidence I have observed since her birth reinforces that individuals like Chloe truly do have a superior, unblemished soul that on judgment day will enable them to travel the EZ PASS lane into heaven while the rest of humanity is backed up in toll booths listening to long lists of transgressions. I frequently tell people, “You will wish you had an extra chromosome on the day you leave this earth!”
The devil tempted the first humans out of Eden and into sin because he knew he could further corrupt and destroy mankind leading people on a highway to hell. Currently 90 percent of children like Chloe diagnosed prenatally with Down syndrome are targeted and eliminated by a lost culture of death that has been deceived into believing these priceless, precious children are defective. Since the devil cannot lead these individuals out of Eden, he is utilizing genetic testing and abortion to destroy an incorruptible group of human beings who bring immeasurable love and light to a world that is rapidly embracing total darkness. Now more than ever we need more BRILLIANT SOULS like Chloe to shine a beacon of light and truth on our most priceless gift from our Creator—human life!
Kurt Kondrich is the father of a beautiful daughter who has Down syndrome and who has been a priceless blessing to his family and community. When Kurt became aware of the higher than 90 percent abortion rate for children prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome, he literally could not sleep at night. In early August 2008, he had a disturbing dream about people with disabilities being exterminated and, after praying, he came up with the name SADSIN (Stop Aborting Down Syndrome Individuals Now) for a web site to defend and protect children with Down syndrome. He has since embarked on a mission to make sure people are aware of this genocide. He wants people to see the beautiful faces of our kids and realize the priceless blessings and gifts they are to a society that has lost focus.
