The Way of Christians
Our country has been beset by people that seek to use abortion as their means of denying personal responsibility for their sexual acts of a promiscuous nature. Not only have they had our Supreme Court rule abortion as a, ‘Privacy Right,’ but have demanded that Medical Practitioners abet their abortion needs including the dispensing of pharmaceuticals created for abortion purposes.
Exodus 21: 22 "If men who are fighting hit a pregnant woman and she gives birth prematurely but there is no serious injury, the offender must be fined whatever the woman's husband demands and the court allows. 23 But if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise.
As you can plainly see this Scripture defines a pregnant woman as having life within her body and goes so far as to allow retribution for injury (even death) to the extent sustained by the life within her womb.
Psalm 82: 3 Defend the cause weak of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. 4 Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked
This Scripture speaks of the “fatherless” which can only be referring to a child in the womb whose father’s name is unknown.
Psalms 127: 3 Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.
In performing an abortion those that participate in this horrendous act are aiding the woman in rejecting a gift from God.
Psalm 139: 13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb
God created man and saw to his life within the womb. How can any man deny that a baby in the womb is not a human life? To say this is to deny the very Word of God!
Jeremiah 1: 5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart…
God Himself told Jeremiah that He knew him ‘before you were born.’ Again, who is any man to deny God’s Word as being absolute and correct?
Hosea 12: 3 In the womb he grasped his brother's heel; as a man he struggled with God.
Hosea was prophesying the birth of Jacob who grabbed has brother’s heel in the womb. If not a person just how would one grasp his brother?
Luke 1: 44As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.
Ask yourself, if not a human being, a person with feelings and emotions, how would a being within the womb, “leap for joy?”
There are writings that are named the ‘Apocalypse of Peter.” These are writings that were considered to be within our Bibles instead of the Book of Revelation. The words were written by the apostle Peter and are most on point as to abortion being sinful. Here is a partial excerpt from his writings:
“Women who have had abortions are set in a lake formed of blood and gore from all other punishments, up to their necks. They are also tormented by the spirits of their unborn children who shoot ‘flashes of fire’ into their eyes.”
Peter goes on to write: “Incidentally, those unborn children are, “delivered to care taking” angels by whom they are educated and “made to grow up.”
This I find to be most interesting as there are so many that use, “abortion is not mentioned in the Bible so it must be acceptable.”
Brothers and sisters, this is a lame argument and one seeking to justify sin. That sin is Murder! The cold and calculated act of abortion is murder with intent.
It is only by the grace of God that there is forgiveness for any that sin by ‘confession to God and repentance to God and from sin.’
Any that consider themselves to be Christian either condone or support abortion are fooling themselves but not any type of true Christian.
We have elected men and women in office that vote in favor of abortion saying, “As an elected official I cannot let my personal beliefs rule my head.” In a word I find this type of justification to be “DISGUSTING.” In gaining political office no man or woman is now capable of changing God’s Word!
Taking everything God has caused to be written in His Word, our Bible, how can abortion be seen as anything short of murder? Additionally, when did Christians start believing that murder is acceptable?
When asked the question, “when does life begin?’ the answer was, “That is above my pay grade.” If a true Christian was asked there would be only one answer that is acceptable with that answer being, life begins even at the moment of conception as God has said, “I knew you (Jeremiah) before you were born.”
Father, Almighty God, we come to You with songs of praise for You in our hearts and in worship of You as our One True God. There is no other god as only You are God. All other gods are imaginations of men and women who refuse to see You and accept Your love.
Lord, we are beset by those that are justifying the killing of the unborn as their right. We know that there is no right to murder and we are forced to submit to laws instilled by a government that is wayward and sinful. Be with us Lord as we seek to deny the dictates of what we know to be sinful justifications that are worthy of Your righteous anger.
As we cannot change the hearts and minds that seek to justify their sinful acts as being ‘protected by law.’ Father, assist us in stopping this horror. If we knew how to do this we would but sadly, we do not. If it is Your will, please enlighten us as to how to stop this murder of innocents or, in the alternative, enlighten the hearts and minds of those who embrace these actions and stop them.
We pray these things in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, who is One with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever,
Amen, amen and amen.
