What Does God Think About Abortion?
(Ver 1.4) This is Part 1 of a series of advanced Bible lessons about what God thinks about the subject of abortion. In the news a while back there was a great controversial clash between the left and the right that took place. It appears that one of the nation’s biggest Catholic Universities invited our current liberal Democratic President to speak at their graduation commencement. The single point of confrontation was a delicate subject that has divided our nation for approximately the last 40 to 50 years. So what is this subject that has caused such debate? It is the subject of abortion. It seems that everyone has some opinion on the matter and that is really the basis and the root of the entire problem. You see what I think about the subject of abortion and what you think about abortion really doesn’t matter or count for anything. The President’s opinion was that we should all just try to find some common ground and get along on this subject of abortion, but what he thinks really doesn’t matter or count for anything either. In fact what the Supreme Court’s opinion is on the subject of abortion doesn’t really matter or count for anything either. What should only matter to you and I and concern us, is what does God think about the subject of abortion? If you could go to heaven and stand before the throne of God and ask Him a direct question on His thoughts on the subject of abortion, what would His answer be to you? Would God’s opinion change your opinion on the subject or would you still hang on to your opinion in spite of whatever He said about the subject? You should really think about that before you answer.
I wonder if you were confronted by God and told you were wrong about something, what would your response be? You could say I’m sorry, I didn’t know I was wrong and I’ll change to be right, right now. You could say I was wrong but then try to explain why you believed what you did and said to justify your opinion. You could even try to be like an Adam or an Eve and pass the responsibility to someone else and redirect the attention away from yourself and say it was just not my fault that I believed in abortion, the President made me to it. You could be a real idiot and say God your wrong and I’m right and I’m not going to change my opinion or what I think no matter what you say or do. Which kind of person are you? Are you smarter than God? How many worlds have you created lately? I’m telling you that people need to wake up before it is too late. There will be no opportunities on judgment day to defend your opinions. If you think there will be, show the Bible verse that says this.
If you proclaim yourself to be a Christian then you should be aware that the Bible is the inerrant Word of this Living Creator God. The Bible is a directly written personal message to you from your God. The Bible was written for our benefit so that we could know this awesome God who none of us has ever seen before. So what a Christian does should follow God’s Word, His thoughts, His commandments, His instructions and the examples that He has given to us in this book. Let me show something that Jesus said to help confirm this point:
Mat 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Jesus said a wise man is one that hears the Word of God and does it. What is the opposite of that statement? The antithesis truth would be “a fool hears the word of God but does not do it”. What are you today a wise man or a foolish man? So what does the Bible say on the subject of Abortion? And of course what would make us a wise man that we could do when we learn about what God says on the subject abortion? Like many other modern Bible subjects the the word “abortion” is not found in the book, but that doesn’t mean God didn’t give us His thoughts on the subject. All we have to do to become wise is to study and find out what He has said on the subject using the other synonymous words that are found on the subject, so let’s do that. I want to start this lesson by giving you another important, short but direct verse on the subject of abortion.
Exo 20:13 Thou shalt not kill.
What does God say in this verse? It is one of the stated 10 commandments of God from the Old Testament. Are these a part of the words and the commandments that Jesus was speaking of for a wise to do? The Hebrew word in this verse means “You shalt not commit murder”. What exactly is abortion if not murder? To cause an innocent life to cease from existence is clearly murder in the Bible. Here is where the liberals have become creative to redefine that a living baby is just a fetus and therefore not a viable life form. By redefining a living child to be simply a fetus they have eliminated it as a qualifying entity for murder. Why do they not use this same logic when they passed laws to protect the eggs of unborn eagles? Did you know that destroying an unborn baby eagle bird in its egg is a punishable criminal offense? You can go to jail for killing (murdering) an eagle egg! Clearly it is the exact same type of stated unsustainable life form as the child (fetus) in the mother. Can you tell me what the difference is between an eagle egg and an unborn human baby? Yet one life form has gained a much greater value than the other in their minds based upon some unknown reasoning. Why is that? How can that not be viewed as the same logical comparison that should not be ignored? Is the value in one species increased simply based upon the numbers of that species; is that what really matters? Because the eagle is endangered does that make them more valuable to be protected than humans that are more populous on the earth? What do you think, does God care more about eagles or for people? Let me ask you this question, did God come to the earth to save the eagles or to save people? If you do not know the answer to that question then you are in big trouble. Let’s let God speak to us on the subject of abortion and tell us His thoughts and then let us see how we react to these words:
Jdg 13:4 Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing:
Jdg 13:5 For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.
Jdg 13:6 Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, A man of God came unto me, and his countenance was like the countenance of an angel of God, very terrible: but I asked him not whence he was, neither told he me his name:
There are so many things to learn from the Bible, if you are open to the truths that it contains when you allow God to show you what it actually means. Here is an example of a woman that hadn’t had any children and the messenger of God shows up at her house and tells her that she is going to have a son. How did God know this? I think that is a really fair question and that the answer is probably more revealing than you can imagine. God knew of the child and what he was going to become and do before he was even conceived. I will tell you that knowing this Bible fact alone will shoot down a woman’s right to choose an abortion. If God knows every child before they are born or even conceived and what they are supposed to be and what they are supposed to accomplish within their life, then who is a woman to decide that they should not be born? You know the fact that the sex of a baby is determined by the male sperm, tells me God knows which sperm is going to fertilize the egg in a woman in order for a male baby to be born. God knew that there was a future deliver about to be born and according to many today, they would have said that this decision for him to be born should have been left up to the woman who conceived him. Is that what God thinks?
Did you notice that God gave this woman specific instructions about what she did and this child has not even been conceived yet? In verse 4 God tells the woman not to eat or drink things that are bad for her or the future baby. WOW, that is clearly a message that is very profound. God was basically informing us that what she did would affect the future child’s ability to fulfill his purpose. This truth places human responsibility on the mother that is way beyond what the world thinks right now. I believe that women and men will be judged for what they did to their future children good or bad.
This woman, the future mother described in Judges was told not to drink or eat any unclean thing before she conceived and while she carried this child in her womb. Why is this significant? If this was not a viable life form, why does it even matter what a woman eats or drinks? No you see it does matter, because this is not just a fetus in the eyes of God, or a blob of developing cells, in the eyes of God it was a child and God said it matters what you feed it. If it matters to God about this child and what he is fed in the womb, then it also matters to God and what every other child is fed in the womb. If it matters to God what this child was fed before it was born, then it clearly matters to God if this child was born at all. Whose responsibility was it to eat the right things and drink the right things for the development of this baby? Was it God’s responsibility to see that his mother did the right thing or not? Did God make her do the right things here? These are not loaded questions! These are not hard questions to figure out the answers to either. If it matters to God about one baby in the Bible, then it matters to God about every baby that is supposed to be born. God does not treat one baby differently than the other, only people do that.
So what happens to all of the future planned roles and responsibilities of all of these babies that are aborted in this world? Do you think that the aborted children’s responsibilities in this life are just given to others that were not aborted? Or do you think that it is possible that there are a bunch of things that are not taking place and getting done, because the one that was going to find the cure for cancer was aborted? What if this child in Judges would have been aborted? What if his mother would have drunk wine and ignored the commandment of God? Would God had another deliverer to raise up or would Israel not have been delivered? I personally believe that this is a major problem with abortion and that there would have been no other one to take this child’s place. Therefore, how many doctors, lawyers and teachers do you think have been aborted in the last 50 years? What exactly are we missing out on? Because of the abortion of the millions of future skilled workres, tax payers and roles that are being unfulfilled Satan has used mudering men called doctors to create a population imbalance. Satan is trying his best to eliminate us from coming into this world.
This was the introduction to the subject of “What does God think about Abortion?” I pray that you can see from just one story in the Bible that it must matter to God if a child is born. Why do you think Satan wants to kill the future children and keep them from entering the world? Could it be that one of these are the preacher that will reach the whole world with the truth? Does Satan think by eliminating future Christians that he can remain on this planet a little longer? I tell you that there are many things to consider on this subject. One is why has Satan been motivated to kill children since early in Genesis? When Moses was born babies were tossed into the river to be drown if they were males. This was a repeated occurrence when Jesus was born. You see Satan is attempting to fight what God has done and is doing. You need to learn the truth and figure out whose side you want to be on. Abortion is a demonic evil plan of Satan to eliminate future Christians. God is a pro-life God and is opposed to abortion. We will continue to learn this as we go through this series of Bible lessons. Thanks for reading and studying the Bible with me today. I pray that what was stated has helped you to see what God really thinks on the subject of future life.
