I Am God!!

Comedian Michelle Wolf received a lot of attention last year with her remarks toward Donald Trump and saying “God bless abortions” in a July fourth special on Netflix. She is back in the news again with her comedy special that was recently released on Netflix. In her routine she stated, “You can feel any way that you want after an abortion. Get one! See how you feel! You know how my abortion made me feel? Very powerful. You know how people say you can't play God? I walked out of there being like, 'Move over, Morgan Freeman. I am God!'” These statements obviously brought about a lot of attention. According to the Washington Examiner, “In state legislatures across America, abortion remains a volatile topic. Ohio, Georgia, Missouri, and several other states have signed "heartbeat bills" that make abortion illegal after the detection of a fetal heartbeat. In July, the Trump administration announced that family-planning clinics are prohibited from receiving Title X funding if the clinics refer women to abortion providers. Later in the special, Wolf further made light of abortion, saying it should be treated with all the gravity of a "gluten allergy" and that "you should be able to get an abortion for any reason you want.”

Even though I do not like what Michelle said, she is right. We are playing God with how we approach birth and death. Abortion is just one example out of many of how we act like a deity. With rampant belief in existentialism in our country this is the byproduct that we should expect to see. But just because she is playing God, it doesn’t make it anymore right.

Existentialism is all based on the here, the now and what can be experienced. Webster’s dictionary defines it as, “philosophical movement embracing diverse doctrines but centering on analysis of individual existence in an unfathomable universe and the plight of the individual who must assume ultimate responsibility for acts of free will without any certain knowledge of what is right or wrong or good or bad.” If you think it and feel it, then it is real. What is real is developed by the will. What is truth is based on what one feels is right. This explains why Michelle believes the way she does. Let’s look again at what she said. Keep in mind that truth is based on feelings and reality is based on what she wills to do.
  •  “You can feel any way that you want after an abortion” What is real to her is based on how she wills her feelings.
  •  “You know how my abortion made me feel? Very powerful” This is what is true, right and correct in her mind. She believes she is very powerful because that is how she felt.
  •  “You know how people say you can't play God? I walked out of there being like, 'Move over, Morgan Freeman.I am God” In this statement she is questioning the validity of what she has been told about playing God. In her mind, “I feel powerful and godly therefore I am!”

She does not care what she has been told, what she has read or what she has heard. What is real is what she has done and what is truth is what she feels. She willed an abortion and that made her feel powerful. Therefore she believes she is godlike!

Yet this is not a way to measure truth and reality. As much as our society wants to exist existentially, it is sinful and leads to self-centered idolatry. Truth is revealed to us by God through His word. And His word tells us that abortion is sinful. The existentialist says, “This is what I feel therefore it's true and I will act according to how I feel.” The christian says, “This is what God says in His word therefore it is true and I will act according to it.” Instead of submitting to our feelings we need to submit to His revealed truth. May God have mercy on the soul of Michelle Wolf.
