The Soul of Man
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Opening Sentence to Paragraph Two of The Declaration of Independence
Life. That is the first of the unalienable Rights listed by the founders of our country. That “right” is now vigorously challenged by a segment of our society that sees no conflict between that “right” and the “right” of abortion. Abortion is promoted by those who would raise “Pursuit of Happiness” above that of “Life”. Those supporters often decry the portion of the statement that points to those rights being derived from “their Creator” asserting that the belief in a creator is an outmoded religious belief that they decline to embrace. The questions that immediately arise are: If no creator where do these rights come from? And do those rights exist at all?
This treatise is to frame part of the discussion/conflict that our society is now involved in. The central question often not addressed or debated is simply “Do you have a Soul?”
The discussion/conflict is not new. There are forces at play that shout the lie echoed from the beginning “You Shall Not Die”. The conflict is real, and the decision is between believing in Life or accepting meaningless and Death. Your answer about “The Soul Of Man” will define what your life and your society will look like for you, your children and your grandchildren.
