Applause for all the wrong or right reasons

On the most recent anniversary of the 1973 Roe V. Wade Supreme Court decision, the State of New York passed a bill essentially allowing abortion up until birth.

The Babylon Bee, a satirical Christian website, imagined a demon applauding with the legislators as this bill was signed.

This bill greenlights what is evil. From a Christian point of view, there is no equivocation. The most shocking part of the whole thing was the applause. Articles online use the modifier of ‘thunderous’ when referring to the applause.

 

To my mind that applause is a direct mockery of God and His work of creation. And one should not mock God. It doesn’t end well.

 

What is His heart like? I look at Jesus’ parable of the lost sheep.

What does heaven erupt in applause over? A sinner who repents. A soul who turns to God. And I imagine this presupposes the soul being born in a body. I imagine this applause would be ‘thunderous’ and sustained. God saves. Sinful man destroys.

 

I know which action I’m going to applaud.
