This post will make me even more unpopular in this state. I do not care! I am here to serve my God, His people and not politics and the evils of this world! We all are going to have to answer to God for what happened ‘under our watch’. To my fellow Pastors: “Don’t talk responsibility, take responsibility.”
I am so sick and tired reporting on the deaths of babies in New Mexico that are killed by their parents. I have said for years the state needs to ‘blow up’ CYFD and start over. It is like pouring money down a rats hole. NM Child Abuse Deaths Double. Both the Dems and GOP keep funding this dysfunctional system. TIME TO START OVER!!!! Way over due! Both parties wear this failure! IT IS ALSO TIME TO END ABORTION IN NEW MEXICO!!! I am thankful that the legislators quoted below are speaking out about this horrible, horrible death! BUT let the talking stop and the ACTION START! GOP Governor Susana Martinez did nothing about CYFD and Dem Michelle Lujan Grisham has done the same. My point is, both parties have got to stop talking about this AND DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!! STOP THE POLITICAL ‘NOTHING NOISE’ AND STEP UP AND TAKE ACTION FOR GOD’S BABIES!!!!
Valencia County lawmakers respond to tragic murder of 1-month old boy
Los Lunas, NM – Valencia County lawmakers today responded to tragic news of the murder of a 1-month old child. According to the Valencia County News-Bulletin, the mother has been charged with an open count of murder. The Valencia County Sheriff told the newspaper that deputies and CYFD had responded to a call to the home the week prior to the tragedy. It is unclear why the initial call to the home, in which the mother expressed concerns of being “overwhelmed and did not want to hurt her children,” did not result in CYFD removing the children from the home.
“I am heartbroken to learn of the loss of such a young life in our community, in a situation that CYFD seemingly dropped the ball,” said State Representative Kelly Fajardo (R-Los Lunas). “This is yet another example of New Mexico’s broken system. Valencia County Sheriff’s responded and made the right calls to get CYFD involved, yet there still was a critical failure in protecting these children.”
“The tragedy this week should be eye-opening to our community, we need to do more to protect our children in situations like these,” said State Representative Alonzo Baldonado (R-Los Lunas). “The cracks in the response from CYFD are massive and only seem to keep growing. At some point we as a community have to ask when is enough, enough?”
More from Today:
Can it get any worse….yes…for sure. We live in a lawless America, a godless America, more people are leaving the Church than ever before in our history. There are more Americans with no religious affiliation. It is conventional wisdom today that all truth is personal and subjective. As a result, sharing Christ in public is viewed as the imposition of our beliefs on others. I was having a conversation with my Sister Deb yesterday on how wore down I am from all the ugly and she hit the nail on the heard, “The last 20 months has been a very hard time for all.” I see know end to the chaos in America. I know business that already have changed their hours because of the lack of help and increase crime. I have people tell me they had to quit their job because they were traumatized by a knife or a gun during a robbery here in Albuquerque. What a world we are leaving our children, it breaks my heart.
My heart breaks at this death of this little boy….how can New Mexicans and all Americans live with themselves?? I’m pouring my heart out to you all…what are you doing to help God?…look what we have created….a world that kills babies. A baby…….a baby….God created this little boy……Here in new Mexico we abort babies all the time…..God’s babies……this is a living nightmare……but yet for many, its business as usual……
We must not become numb to these tragedies, this evil……..I have never seen such evil until I moved here to New Mexico. I have lived in Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Indiana and since 1995 here in New Mexico. Sure the other states had problems, but to kill babies??? Not like New Mexico through abortion and parents killing their own through murder, like just what happened in Los Lunas. 1 month old boy killed by Mother in New Mexico What makes New Mexico so violent? The people of New Mexico really need to focus on the cause. This is not a Dem or GOP problem this is the ‘peoples problem.’ Why so much death? Why so much child abuse and hunger? New Mexico has long had one of the worst rates of child food insecurity in the country. In 2020, 26% of New Mexico children experienced food insecurity, which is up from pre-COVID-19 levels of 22%. … In 2019, 25% of New Mexico children lived in poverty, which is the third highest rate in the country. NM Child Abuse Deaths Double New Mexico has led the nation in all these ugly things. It seems to me, many ignore this. Abortion, so many babies are killed every month. NM Abortion Clinics See Influx from Texas I am wore down from all the children being killed in this state. So many here in New Mexico are not of God, just like in America. Stop now, and pray for what God would have you do. If Jesus gave out report cards, in my mind, the Church in New Mexico and all over America would get an F. We all are failing God.
Sharon and I will continue to stand in the gap for God’s babies and all people ass we go forth carrying out THE GREAT COMMISSION in love. We will continue to build bridges of love and trust in the world. We will speak to the evils of this world in the love of JESUS! We will hold the Church accountable for its failures.
Our children are paying a deep price for the failure of us adults to provide them a better world.
Politics is not the answer JESUS is!
God created New Mexico with all His beauty and we have created a cloud of death over His creation. Shame on all of us.
Sharon and I will continue to go against this dysfunction, even in the Church until the Lord says no more.
We both are very tired.
From Adrian Rogers:
No man ever got a better start than King Saul. And no man ever had a sadder finish than King Saul. When we first meet King Saul in the Bible as a young man, he’s handsome. He’s winsome. He’s courteous. He’s humble. He’s thoughtful. But as we continue through the Bible, we find he becomes a bitter, envious, murderous, wicked, old man. He died by his own hand. He died sadly, piteously, and embarrassingly.
But we should learn from Saul because the thing that happened to Saul could happen to any person. He gave himself over to certain influences, and the devil moved in, and in Saul, we see the finished product of the devil’s art. As the Bible reminds us at many points, it’s not how you start but how you finish. Saul had the right start, but he finished poorly because he turned away from God.
- When was a time you started something well but finished poorly?
- Would you say your life is moving toward God over time or away from Him? What needs to change?
Write out a list of your priorities. Write what really matters to you (not what you think should matter). Objectively review this list and assess whether these priorities will move you closer to or further away from God.
