As our society works at a feverish pace to remove God and replace Him with godless culturally mandated norms, I find myself asking more frequently, “Are you rooted in the world or God’s Word?” When I recently thought of these two words I realized that one letter, “L,” can change “Word” to the “world,” and that is very appropriate because without the Word you are “lost in lies.”
In today’s world, it is easy to become swept away by the deception and lies being endorsed continuously by a culture of death and immorality. I am the father of a beautiful 9-year-old daughter Chloe who has Down syndrome, and one of the greatest lies being promoted by the world is that children like my Chloe are defective and need to be targeted and eliminated prenatally so they do not burden the world. This truly is a global phenomenon which is leading to the near extinction of an angelic human species this lost world cannot afford to lose. God’s Word clearly states that all children are priceless gifts formed by our Creator, and God has an incredible plan for ALL of us if we follow Him:
Psalm 139:13 “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.”
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.”
In nine years I have seen Chloe follow Jesus planting more positive seeds and bringing more light into this world than 90 percent of people do in a lifetime. Since 90 percent of children diagnosed prenatally with Down syndrome are terminated, we can only imagine the light that is missing from our rapidly darkening culture of death due to this silent genocide.
Light is an instrument used to wake people up and reveal truth, and if the world embraced the Word and changed the “L” in world to “LIFE” we would rapidly see a worldwide transformation from darkness to Light.
John 1:5 “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
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.
