What Does God Think About Abortion? Pt 4
(ver 1.2) This is Part 4 in the series of lessons on what God thinks about abortion and if you have not read it from the beginning I would suggest that you go and start with “Part 1“. I don’t know if this will be my last blog on this subject or not. There is really much more to learn. However, there are also many other subjects in the Bible. I do believe that this subject is one of the most important subjects in the heart of God that we should understand clearly. If God can’t stop people from killing their own children, that He is trying to send into this world, then He has a major problem that will be solved some day and you probably won’t like His solution. Right there I probably just said several things that offended someone. God not able to do something is just inconceivable. However the Bible says this on the Subject of Abortion:
Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing therefore choose life that both thou and thy seed may live:
So is this verse about abortion, sure it is. These are the words of God and this is what He said to you and me about abortion. He told us that the choice was in our hands and it was our responsibility for the well being of not only us, but our children. If God told you personally, that you could choose to live or to die, then makes this recommendation, “Choose Life!”, what would you do? Notice however, God can only make recommendations for what you choose to do. God doesn’t make the decisions for you. You will find this to be a common theme though out the Bible. God is not a puppet master controlling what you decide to do. God makes some very strong recommendations and many times gives you the consequences to wrong choices, but God never forces you to choose life. He will let you kill your baby. Even though He gave you that child for a purpose and had a great plan for that child in the world.
I don’t really know how people can read verses like these and not understand them, but I guess if it doesn’t go along with their current thought process or their current belief system, they just ignore them and pretend they are not relevant or they don’t exist. These words spoken by God are not unique and they apply to every person. If you think they don’t, then God clearly lies and shows favoritism toward only a few certain people.
Psalm 22:9 But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breast.
Psalm 22:10 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.
Isaiah 49:1 Listen O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hat called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name.
If God knew this man’s name before he was born, then he knows every child’s name while they are still in their mother’s womb. God even knows the names of the children that were aborted. I know that will not sit well with a lot of people, but I didn’t say it the Bible said it and I go along with those words and I don’t really care what you think about it at all.
I read this next scripture and it really struck a chord with me. It sounded so much like what we are experiencing in this nation right now. We have a government system that is probably one of the greatest on the entire planet. However, even our system in the wrong hands can cause a lot of problems. We have a political system controlled right now by a group of people that have deceived a majority of the nation into believing that what they represent is good and right. Some of these even call themselves Christians. But in my book a Christian is someone that follows Christ and therefore would only do what he says to do. Jesus made this statement, “you will know them by their fruit”. What that means is obviously open to interpretation to some degree and what some might call fruit I wonder what God thinks about their fruit?
Romans 16:18 For they that are such serve not out Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
We have developed a generation of people that qualify to be easily deceived. Why are they so easily deceived, I believe it is because of the removal of God from the classroom and it is the gradual slow methodological introduction to decaying morals and principles. We have political leaders today that speak of things in subtle ways that twist things around and make good seem evil and evil seem good. I heard this term on television given by one of these leaders and it was welcoming people to the “Democratic Values”. They were welcoming a new convert that recently changed political parties. I mean to put the words “Democrat” and “Values” together in the same sentence is an oxymoronic attempt at establishing what they consider as an acceptable alternative life style. They want to speak and profess a view to include every lifestyle and behavior no matter how perverse. They strive to seek “common ground” with every point of view no matter how extreme and wish to be acceptable to every immoral act.
Some would probably say that I’m a Republican and think we should all vote this for the right. But I’m not saying that at all. With all of the sex scandals in Washington D.C. on the Republican and Democratic sides, it has become increasingly difficult to know wno to vote for. I realize that nobody is perfect, but it seems in today’s elections we are voting for the lesser of two evils. The lack of true Christian participation in our political process is pretty sad.
I’ll get off the political soap box and go back to the subject at hand. There are too many people in the world that refuse to recognize the significance of human life at conception. Most of them are all for human rights except for those who are unable to vote or speak for themselves. An incredible number of defenseless unborn children are being murdered and terminated on a daily basis around the world and they claim that it is the woman’s right to choose that would be violated if they didn’t allow this to happen.
The logic behind this reasoning is idiotic. No one addresses the real issue, they only want to treat the symptoms of the problem. The root of every problem is spiritual in nature and this issue is of course no different. Why is it permissible for a woman to murder her baby before it is born and it is not permissible after it is born? For some reason certain individuals have reasoned that one is acceptable and the other one is not. I guess they think that because the child has not yet breathed a breath of air or ate a natural meal that it is therefore not a legitimate life form. They call it NOT ”Viable”; a form of life that is not really a complete self sufficient life form. You know with that kind of thinking and logic why is it not OK to kill new born babies? They don’t have the ability to be self-sufficient or the ability to care for themselves. Babies when they are born are totally dependent upon the mother to sustain them, feed them and nurture them in order that he or she can grow and develop. It takes years before a child is self-sufficient. Why is it not OK to kill these children, if they can’t take care of themselves and you don’t want them. You see the only difference between these two children is we have laws that protect them after they born and no laws that protect them before they are born. People’s logic and justification for abortion is pretty crazy.
So what is the cause for babies? If there was not a baby to abort there would be no issue to discuss, would there? So what is the root cause for babies? It is really a very simple answer, sex. People want the opportunity to have sex with whom ever they want, when ever they want and there be absolutely no consequences to their actions. I learned in science and physics classes that there is always a cause and an effect. If you see waves in a pool, you know somebody threw something in to cause the waves. Something happens that causes something else to result. God didn’t make things that complicated that we can’t figure this kind of stuff out. People these days want to approach pregnancy as the problem and not sex. They are wanting to solve the problem by killing the child that resulted. They ignore the real problem because they like that part of it. After all you can’t stop teens from having sex, can you? So it really comes down to a sin issue. People want the pleasures of sex but not the responsibility or the consequences of sex. You see a woman does have a right to choose and make a choice but it is not after the fact when they are faced with the consequences to their previous decisions and actions. It ‘s too late after there is a child to determine do I want a child? When you are pregnant you already have a child no matter how long you have been pregnant, one day or 9 months time doesn’t matter to God.
So far that may sound good to some and to a great number of others, it probably turned them off. After all it sounds like my opinion on the subject and my opinion on the subject matters the same as your opinion on the subject, ZERO! The problem with politicians today is they have an opinion and it is usually slanted towards their prospective voters that elect them into office. You see they let popular opinion determine what is right and what is wrong. I would ask you this simple question, do you think it matters to GOD what you think about abortion? Is GOD swayed by popular opinion or pressure from the left or from the right? Is God changing his mind on the value of human life because people can now create test tube babies and manipulate DNA and other characteristics scientifically. Does the advances in medical sciences change God’s opinion on what people should do or not do? I assume most think that God doesn’t care what they do. Someday they will be very surprised to find out that He cared more than they could ever conceive of in their mind.
