DEATH MARCHES ON IN THE NETHERLANDS, MARCHING TO THE DRUM OF ADULT EUTHANASIA. PARALLEL PATH TO NAZISM!


Many advocates of adult euthanasia in the United States proudly point to the Netherlands as the example whom we should copy. Yet, a close look at what is occurring in the Netherlands proves every warning we have uttered about this the inevitable path down which we will travel if we legalize Adult Euthanasia in America. Once you read this article, you will be able to place Euthanasia with our other articles about the parallel path America is taking, that Nazi Germany trod.

The New World Order is coming! Are you ready? Once you understand what this New World Order really is, and how it is being gradually implemented, you will be able to see it progressing in your daily news!!

THE CUTTING EDGE

NEWS BRIEF: "Death In The Netherlands: Dutch Doctors Kill Defective Children With Impunity", by Nat Hentoff, The Village Voice, February 18, 1997, p. 20. "There is much interest in the Netherlands in the assisted suicide and euthanasia cases now before our Supreme Court. For more than 10 years, Dutch doctors have been empowered to help patients kill themselves, and increasingly, physicians there have been directly killing patients, sometimes without being asked to."

Adult Euthanasia advocates in this country are vociferously pushing their agenda of death-on-demand in this country, shrouding their efforts in the most admirably sounding words in the English language. They call people who want to kill themselves, as 'noble', 'courageous', 'compassionate', people who simply want to 'control' their final exit. Euthanasia advocates also vociferously deny that their Adult Euthanasia plan might possibly degenerate intp killing people who are not terminally ill, or who do not want to die. And, such advocates deny most vehemently any suggestion that Adult Euthanasia might follow a parallel path of Nazi Germany! To "prove" their point, they say, just look at the existing Adult Euthanasia program which has been functioning in the Netherlands for over a decade now.

OK, we will do just that, looking at the Netherlands' Adult Euthanasia program, through the eyes of The Village Voice. This source is highly significant, because The Village Voice is a Liberal paper; it is not a Conservative, Fundamental, Bible-believing Christian source, who might be expected to have a biased slant on the facts of this case. But, surely, we can believe that The Village Voice will be sympathetic voice to this issue, right?

Therefore, we find it highly significant that the author of this article in The Village Voice writes about the situation in the Netherlands with absolute personal horror and revulsion! He writes this article as if he were a Christian! And, lo and behold, he finds much parallel with Hitler's Nazi Germany. Americans of every political persuasion will do well to heed his words.

Now, let us return to this article. "A Dutch television crew came to the Voice to interview me because I have reported extensively on Dutch death on demand for this paper and The Washington Post. I told the interviewer of the great respect I had for Dutch physicians during the Nazi occupation of that land. The Germans disbanded the Dutch medical association and ordered the doctors to join the new one headed by a Nazi sympathizer and anti-Semite. Ninety-eight percent of the Dutch physicians refused and were told that they were no longer doctors ..."

"What surprises and angers me ... is that, despite that courageous model of Dutch doctors during the Nazi occupation, doctors in the Netherlands today are engaged in terminating patients. Moreover, many ignore the guidelines that were set when physicians were given the power to kill:

1) The patient must repeatedly, voluntarily, ask for death;

2) the patient's suffering must be unbearable and without prospect of improvement;

3) At least one other doctor must be consulted."

Aren't these "guidelines" the same ones being proposed today in this country by advocates of Adult Euthanasia? Advocates are proposing that laws be enacted which will set these same "guidelines", telling us that such laws will protect the innocent, will stop doctors from killing patients without their approval or knowledge. Yet, here in the Netherlands, we see that such laws have not, and are not, preventing doctors from killing patients at will. In a few moments, we shall see how pervasive this practice has become, but for our purposes now, it is enough simply to state that this is the case.

Why would doctors, who have taken the Hippocratic Oath, start killing the very patients that they have been sworn to help and protect? If you do not believe in the God of the Bible, you would be perplexed. After all, New Age philosophy states, mankind is, by nature, kind, benevolent, and good. Man is corrupted only be the influence of his circumstances, by his environment. If man's environment can only be changed, man will begin to naturally exhibit his "goodness". If man can simply be freed from the restrictive and damaging laws and rules which "Christian" society has arbitrarily imposed, then his natural goodness will show through.

But, the Fundamental Christian knows better, and believes otherwise. We draw our understanding of man's intrinsic nature from the Scriptures, of which we have quoted a few, below:

1) " The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" [Jeremiah 17:9] This verse literally means that the human heart is so desperately wicked and so deeply wicked, that no man can know the true depths of his depravity. In other words, all men are potentially Adolf Hitler in our heart of hearts. Most Christians who know their Bibles know that the Holy Spirit restrains us from evil, to protect us, and to persuade us to turn to Jesus Christ for forgiveness. But, very few people, including Christians, understand the degree to which the Holy Spirit restrains the unsaved people from the depths of evil to which they could go. And why does the Holy Spirit restrain even the wicked? To allow the saved to live in relative peace and stability. But, in the Great Tribulation, this restraint of the unsaved will disappear, resulting in the greatest outpouring of evil and disastrous wickedness the world has ever seen. People will be afraid to go out for groceries for fear of being assaulted and/or killed.

2) "Behold, I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me." [Psalm 51:5, uttered by King David after Nathan the prophet confronted David with his sin with Bathsheba]

This Scripture literally means that David realized he was conceived in sin from the beginning of his existence. While he was still in the womb of his mother, he was "wired" to sin. Thus, we know that man's intrinsic nature is to want to sin. Man is, by nature, desperately sinful. If you doubt this to be the case, just begin to read your daily newspaper with the idea that you will look for evidences of sin within its pages. You will be shocked at how many of the daily stories have their roots in sin.

3) "And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth." [Genesis 6:12-13] Notice that God complained that all flesh, meaning every man and woman on earth, was living in sin, such great sin that they had become "corrupt" and worthy to be destroyed. All men, 100% of them, had gone into sin. Now, if man's nature were naturally pure and sinless, surely some would have escaped the corruption of their nature. But, God stated that all flesh was sinful.

4) "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" [Romans 3:23]

5) "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:" [Romans 5:12]

6) "Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others." [Ephesians 2:3] The Apostle Paul, speaking under the influence of the Holy Spirit, states that man is, by nature the "children of wrath". The original Hebrew literally means, "deserving of God's wrath" [Holman Bible Dictionary]

All men have sinned, which means that all men have rebelled against the authority and commandments of God. They have all missed the mark, to use an archery term. This is man's basic nature, sinful from the moment of conception, inherently sinful. Therefore, we should not be surprised to learn that, once human doctors have been given the power to kill, supposedly under carefully prescribed 'guidelines', many will abuse that power immediately and begin to kill outside the 'guidelines'. Finally, you will not be surprised that human officials charged with upholding these 'guidelines', will do nothing to punish doctors who are illegally killing patients. Any law is meaningless unless it is firmly enforced. Therefore, these Dutch laws, or 'guidelines' are not worth the paper on which they are printed, and neither will any similar American laws.

This brings us to our final Biblical understanding concerning the nature of man. Now that we know man is inherently sinful, what is the first sin against his fellow man that the Bible records? MURDER!! "Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him." [Genesis 4:8] Man's inherently sinful nature seems to be easily expressed in the murder of other people, as history's many, many crimes and wars seem to amply testify. Therefore, we should expect that, when a country gives legal protection to a doctor to kill people under certain circumstances, it will not be long before such killing is expanded to killing people under any circumstances desired by the doctor. To see that this is the case, listen carefully to the next part of this article.

"For Dutch viewers, I quoted Dr. Herbert Hendin, whose most recent book is "Seduced By Death: Doctors, Patients, and the Dutch Cure" (Norton). Testifying before a congressional subcommittee, Hendin illuminated the irreversible Dutch slippery slope that American supporters of assisted suicide would wish upon us: 'The Netherlands has moved from assisted suicide to euthanasia; from euthanasia for people who are terminally ill to euthanasia for those who are chronically ill; from euthanasia for physical illness to euthanasia for psychological distress; and from voluntary euthanasia to involuntary euthanasia (called in the Netherlands termination of the patient without explicit request)' "

Now, you can truly see this "slippery slope" called Euthanasia, and it is called the Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan. After a period of bitter battling [Step 4], the door is opened just a crack [Steps 5-6], allowing the objectionable practice to occur under "severe" or "strict" guidelines. Advocates know that, if they can force the door open just a crack, they will very soon be able to force it open completely. This Plan worked to perfection in the case of Abortion, and now it is working to perfection in Euthanasia.

Now, let us return to this Village Voice article. "I then asked the Dutch TV interviewer how the Dutch people can justify not only the 'quality of life' killing of adults, which brings back memories of the Nazi occupiers -- but also the liquidating of 'defective' children. An accounting of the euthanizing of children in the Netherlands comes from Dr. Richard Fenigsen, a cardiologist in the Netherlands. I got to know him about eight years ago, and he predicted that Dutch euthanasia would go inexorably out of control because there are no truly binding limits once society gives doctors the power to kill."

Isn't this exactly what we Fundamental, Bible-believing Christians have been saying all this time? Once you give one human being the power to kill another human being, he will do so with ever increasing frequency and with ever increasing boldness, his professional medical training notwithstanding. Abortion foes have long predicted that, once you cheapen life at the beginning of the spectrum through abortion, you will cheapen it at the end of life through euthanasia. Of course, this premise irrevocably implies that, if both ends of life are cheapened to the point of killing those deemed 'unworthy', then no person at any part in the middle years will be safe. Even though Euthanasia advocates deny most vehemently that this scenario is possible, the situation in the Netherlands shows that this scenario of progression does occur, inevitably.

"In a September, 1996, report by our House Subcommittee on the Constitution, Dr. Fenigsen tells of a Dutch three-year-old who had spina bifida, but was otherwise in 'fair general condition'. For two days, he did not feel quite well and his parents asked for euthanasia. (How could a three-year-old have protested?) One nurse, appalled, opposed the decision and she and her husband offered to adopt the child. The offer was turned down. The boy was killed by physicians 'with drugs administered with intravenous drip'. And get this: The nurse was reprimanded because, by involving her husband in the adoption offer, she violated professional confidentiality."

Horror of horrors!! We can easily see that the normal love and compassion which parents feel for their children has been hardened beyond belief here, as both parents sought to have their child killed for a physical problem that was not life-threatening, even minor! What does the Bible predict about people's attitudes and values in the Last Days? "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good ..." [2 Timothy 3:1-3] "Without natural affection" amply describes these parents. The Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan helps us understand how a person could become so hardened as to kill their own child. Step 4 calls for constant battling over the proposed objectionable idea. Constant battling will cause people to become hardened enough that many will finally end up supporting the objectionable idea. This constant exposure to the horrific idea, and the constant battling, will cause people's consciences to become hardened, seared as with a hot iron. "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;" [2 Timothy 4:1-2] Truly, I believe we are seeing prophecy fulfilled in this instance specifically in the Netherlands. And, do not believe, for a moment, that this couple is unique in their hardness of heart. There are many, many more such couples in the Netherlands, and will be many, many such couples in the United States of America!! If you just read the news, you will see many instances of child abuse, neglect, and murder; you will understand that hardness of heart has permeated many people in America today. We are prime for the same situation of child killing as we see now in the Netherlands.

But, now, let us return to our article to see more specifics as to how hardness of heart reigns in The Netherlands, creating what this Liberal author describes as "a culture of death".

"From the congressional subcommittee report on 'Physician-Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia in the Netherlands: Dr. Fenigsen worries about the long-term effect of the permissive attitude in the Netherlands toward euthanasia for people with disabilities. There seems to be little tolerance for disabled children and the parents who raise them. In fact, Professor J. Stolk, a specialist in mental retardation at the Free University in Amsterdam, has documented cases where parents of disabled children are rebuked. For example, parents have heard statements such as,

'What? Is that child still alive? How can one love such a child?'

'Nowadays, such a being need not be born at all'.

'Such a thing should have been given an injection'."

Please, please, wake up and understand that ideas and words have consequences that can be most severe and devastating! From the beginning of the abortion battle in this country, advocates insisted on renaming the unborn baby, calling it a 'thing' or 'fetus' or a 'tissue mass'. Such words remove the human element from the equation, so it is easier to contemplate killing the unborn baby; but, it is still an unborn baby, with an eternal soul, present from the instant of conception! In the Netherlands, people have also been trained quite well to believe that the unborn baby is a 'thing'. This training has now reached the point where they will look at a born child, with disabilities, and curse the fact that this type of child was allowed to be born! And, now that this child with disabilities has been born, these citizens of the Netherlands have no compunction about wanting to kill him!

Do you sense the power and presence of Satan, the great Deceiver, and the Hater of all mankind? Remember, Satan and his demonic host hate all humans, even those serving him, because we are all created in the image of God [Genesis 1:26-27, specifically verse 27, "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." This is the reason Jesus stated in Matthew 24:22 that, if He did not come back at the end of the seven year Tribulation Period, no human beings would be left alive. Satan plans to kill us all, but he has revealed to New World Order planners that he plans to kill only two-thirds of Earth's population. Abortion and Euthanasia are simply the beginnings of his Plan].

Do you remember the oft repeated assertion from abortion foes, who warned that, if you cheapened life at the beginning, you would cheapen it at the end, and then at all points in between? In the last quoted section, above, in this article, the author was speaking about attitudes toward disabled children. Then, in the very next paragraph, he shifts his focus to the elderly.

"Eight years ago, Dr. Fenigsen told me of elderly people in the Netherlands who were afraid to go to the hospital. They didn't want to die, and they feared that a doctor, feeling compassionate about these old folk's frailness, would decide to euthanize them. And they knew of others to whom that had actually happened. A 1995 study of euthanasia in the Netherlands disclosed that 23 percent of the doctors interviewed reported that they had euthanized a patient without his or her explicit request. Furthermore, at least half of Dutch physicians involved made the initial suggestion that death should be embraced. That is, they suggested euthanasia to patients." [Emphasis mine]

Can you believe that a doctor could rationalize their feelings and mental state in such a way as to actually feel "compassionate" as they prepared to kill a patient without that patient's approval? Yet, history records that this is precisely the attitude of German doctors and soldiers who operated the Death Camps of the Nazis.

We have just identified yet another instance in which the world is proceeding rapidly down a parallel path trod by Nazi Germany just 60+ years ago!

Please, look closely at the statement, above, that doctors felt "death should be embraced". God reveals great insight into this type of phenomenon. In Proverbs 8:36, God warns, "But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death." All people of any age that hate God love death.

As hard as this may be for us to understand this mind set, it is quite simple, really. Born Again Christians long to be with our Lord Jesus Christ for eternity, because we love Him, and want to be with Him. Is this not the prayer of your heart? And, as we look at the ills of society, we would like to go to Heaven sooner rather than later. Right?!

Now, consider the person who has rejected God. Since we humans will serve either God or Satan, those who reject God will automatically swerve into Satan's orbit. We have no choice, given the very limited, and frail, nature of our bodies and minds. Soon, people who are in Satan's orbit will be filled with hate, anger, violence, and they will begin to love death. They might not wish to die themselves, but they will surely be quick to wish death upon others.

Sociologists who have thoroughly studied Germany, and Germans, during the Nazi era, now realize that symbols of death began appearing in German society in the early years, when the killing was still being kept largely secret. Symbols like Death's Heads, began appearing in certain segments of the German underground and entertainment. An axiom seemed to hold true, that, whenever you see symbols of Death appearing in society, as in its entertainment, you can feel certain that secret killing of disabled or disadvantaged, or devalued people of some type, is already occurring in that society. [You can get a full discourse on this subject from Dr. Wolfesnberger's unpublished book, described below]

Since this is true in America, beginning in the early 1970's, in the American Rock Music Industry, death symbols began appearing regularly and boldly. Therefore, we should understand that the killing of devalued people is already occurring in America, right now! We see it plainly in Abortion, we are witnessing the operation of the Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan in Euthanasia, and we hear scattered reports of someone being arrested in a hospital or nursing home for killing patients without their approval. Rest assured, brethren, Death is occurring secretly to a very large degree in America today!

You can read about this secret killing in an unpublished book, by Dr. Wolf Wolfensberger, Professor, "The New Genocide of Handicapped And Afflicted People". Since this book is unpublished because no publisher would print it, you may order it through us, for only $16.95, plus shipping. Please allow three weeks for delivery. If you are interested in the "Culture of Death" being created in the United States right now, you must read this book. It is truly dynamite!! Dr. Wolfensberger is a Holocaust survivor, and he lost family in Hitler's genocide. He knows whereof he speaks. And, yes, he is also a Christian. But, the major benefit of Dr. Wolfensberger's unpublished book is that he demonstrates how any society can reach the point of declaring certain types of people "unworthy", and then manipulate these people into genocide. Once Dr. Wolfensberger lays this foundation, he demonstrates how secret killing is occurring NOW, and he shows you how you can spot it in the news. Finally, he shows you how you can protect yourself and your family now. This is must reading if you are to understand American society today.

Now, let us return to our article, to finish on the subject of laws that are supposed to prevent the killing of patients. This last segment is most important, is it not? Euthanasia advocates in this country are proposing certain "safeguard laws" that would prevent doctors, nurses, or any other medical personnel, from killing patients who do not want to die. The Netherlands has this type of "safeguard laws" so let us examine the efficacy of these laws. Do they work? Are Dutch patients being protected?

Nat Hentoff, author of this article in the Liberal Village Voice, says, "But what about the guidelines that said the request had to come voluntarily from the patient? Says Dr. Herbert Hendin, 'Virtually every guideline established by the Dutch to regulate euthanasia has been modified or violated with impunity.' "

This is THE smoking gun of this issue of euthanasia. Dutch doctors, who have been granted limited legal authority to kill patients under certain, narrowly prescribed guidelines, are now violating these guidelines with impunity. Since all human beings are naturally sinners, naturally rebellious against God's commandments, we can know for certain that American doctors will react in precisely the same manner as have Dutch doctors. We can be assured that Americans will be killed just as massively as the Nazi doctors were killing their patients in the years immediately before Hitler began officially killing enemies of the State, in 1938.

Furthermore, the specter of Antichrist looms hugely on the horizon of this issue. Dutch doctors are already conditioned to kill, and American doctors, nurses, and medical personnel are rapidly becoming conditioned to kill. When Antichrist EXPLODES upon the world scene, with his tremendous miracles and signs, he will command such loyalty and obedience as the world has never seen!! Antichrist will easily be able to move American and Dutch medical professionals, and such professionals the world over, to move immediately to the final stage of killing, frenzied killing, as sociologists called the final three and one-half years of Hitler's seven-year Holocaust.

Then, the peoples of the world, deemed "unworthy", will begin to feel the sting of death, of "Early Exit". The rush to reduce the world's population by two-thirds will be forging ahead.

But, do not be deceived: Antichrist could not have this kind of impact on medical professionals twenty or thirty years ago, because attitudes and values were much different then.

Conditioning, conditioning, conditioning!!

This struggle today in America, to legalize Euthanasia, is primarily the conditioning vehicle to change the attitudes and values of enough Americans to allow the beginning of the next Holocaust. American medical professionals will have to have been conditioned prior to carry out the Holocaust, and at least a strong minority of Americans have to have been conditioned to support this Holocaust. How close are we to this point? Dr. Wolfensberger emphatically states we are already there, in his book, above. Dr. Jack Kevorkian's killing demonstrates that we are very close to legalized killing.

Do not be deceived any longer. The world is at the very doors of the End of the Age. Antichrist is even now awaiting in the wings, ready to stage his appearance. Satan and his demonic host are awaiting the time of the Tribulation when God will allow them to swarm over the Earth, afflicting and possessing tens of millions of people.

You need to begin to actively oppose this euthanasia campaign, whether it is locally, on your state level, or nationally. Become active in calling or writing your representatives, to let them know how you feel. And, most importantly, you need to begin to PRAY that God will stop this insidious program in its tracks, if such action is within His Will and Plan for the ages. You can use this subject of Euthanasia to turn individual conversations to spiritual matters; you can possibly use Euthanasia as the means by which you can present the Gospel to someone who is not saved! What a grand opportunity to witness!!

This is the End of the Age. For the unsaved, it is God's Judgment. But, for the saved, it is an unprecedented opportunity to witness like we have never witnessed before! It is time for us to rise up and become the soldiers for God that we have done never before! This is the opportunity for you to fulfill, in your life, God's prophecy in Daniel 11:32b-33a, "... the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many ..." Are you ready to "do exploits" for God now, and in your individual situation? If you are ready, and you do in regularly, God then promises great reward for you, if you witness out of a heart full of love for Him. In Daniel 12:3, still speaking of those living in the Last Days, God says, "And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever." You can shine like the stars in the Heavens, if you stop being lukewarm, and begin to be "on fire" for Jesus Christ!

Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually. If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.

We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.

Finally, we would love to hear from you.

You can contact us by mail or email.

God bless you.
