I have something that is on my heart to talk about. This came after seeing a certain graphic on Facebook and I shared it on my wall. I got one negative comment on it. So, I felt lead to post this blog entry.
I am going to talk about Abortion. The graphic I saw had the word Abortion written on it with certain letters crossed out and a new word was formed Adoption. “B” was change to a “D” and the “R” was changed to a “P”. I am sure this post may be a controversial to most people. We have those for life and those against it. Some say it goes against human rights, but abortion goes against God and God’s law. We cannot allow the world to tell us what is right or wrong, we must consult the Bible. God’s Word is what tells us what is right or wrong. We are not here to please man, we are here to please God. Abortion is a form of murder. It is taking the life of an innocent person. Check out this movie 180, about the holocaust and a link to abortion.
Let’s look at Jeremiah 1:5
“Before I formed you in the belly I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
God knew us way before we were even made or thought about, before we were conceived. We were all called to be part of God and his calling.
Let’s look at Deuteronomy 27:25
“Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen.”
Here it shows it is wrong to take the blood, meaning the life of an innocent one. That baby in the womb, cannot take care of itself.
Let’s look at Proverbs 6:16
“These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: … Hands that shed innocent blood”
Again, it says Lord hates, and believes shedding of innocent blood is an abomination.
Let’s look at Luke 1:41
And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
Note it says the babe, as in baby leaped. It didn’t say fetus, etc. It said babe. Meaning it had life.
Let’s look at Matthew 7:12
Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
This verse is also known as the Golden Rule verse. Do unto others. Would you want someone killing you?
Let’s look at Romans 14:23b
whatever is not from faith is sin.
Here it clearly shows us if we don’t have faith in God, we are sinning. Trust in God will get you through it, Trust in God will take care of you and the child.
“It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.” – Mother Teresa
“I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is ‘Abortion’, because it is a war against the child… A direct killing of the innocent child, ‘Murder’ by the mother herself… And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love… And we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts…” – Mother Teresa
Abortion is inherently different from other medical procedures because no other procedure involves the purposeful termination of a potential life. -Potter Stewart
Any woman who has felt a baby stir inside her [and] any man who has seen the tiny heart pulsing on an ultrasound screen, knows that abortion is about ending a life – KarenKissane
Abortion … interferes with God’s plan–a plan He willed before He created the universe. Abortion is in violation of God-given life. -Richard C. Halverson
We all have a purpose, and killing that innocent life, destroys a purpose God has. That next child could have done great things for God and his plan. Sure there are plenty more that can be shared, but this a summons of what it there. Take time, read the Bible and find out more by reading and staying in God’s word.
It is funny how people say they won’t go into battle with anyone not equipped for battle, saying those going against God’s word, but they are the ones not equipped, for we have the Full Armor of God, including God’s Word, which is sharper than any double edged sword. A Baby who is alive, that is in the womb, has no voice, so they need someone to stand up and be their voice and let others know abortion is murder. Just like this one who who is Pro-Life and a Voice for the Voiceless. Who knows that baby you are thinking about aborting, could grow up to cure cancer. We will never know if you abort that baby. Give that baby the life it deserves. There are plenty of folks would would love to adopt that baby. Check out this You Aborted them comic.
