WARNING: This post is going to deal specifically with the subject of abortion and will contain some information and truths you may not be prepared to hear. I had considered not posting it, but on the morning I had been contemplating it I came across a post by Ame at her own blog regarding the same subject. Rest assured that though I will be providing biblical proof of my assertion through scripture, I do not know the entirety of the bible by heart and am more than open to someone proving my assertion wrong. At this time, however, this is my understanding of the subject and the horror behind abortion that not even christians speak of, at least no christian I have ever discussed the subject with.
If discussion of this nature disturbs you, please do not read further. If you are a mother who has lost a child in the past, read only at your own risk and with my full warning to, maybe, pass this post by and return at another time.
Otherwise: Read. Pray. Act.
Abortion. Its a horrible thing, having claimed the lives of countless millions of unborn and more recently, partially born babies since its passing into law as a legal “medical procedure”. Once reserved to medical necessity only (if the mothers life was in danger or due to incest) it has become almost en vogue to have one now. It is, in fact, celebrated, with women on social media prompting other women to shout their abortion out, loud and proud. Then, of course, there is this abomination:
I hate even posting this image its so disgusting, but it must be seen so that those who are unawares can fully understand how far down the shit hole we are in the West. The words “shit hole” are scarcely adequate for describing the situation at hand. These women are celebrating murdering their own children. Let that sink in for a moment. Understand that they would sooner shed a tear over the death of a small animal, a puppy or a kitten, than they would their own child.
Much has been done to avoid heaping any kind of guilt on these women by society. As of today we are still actually discussing not STOPPING abortion altogether but at what point in a child’s life its still permissible to murder them in the womb. At conception? 10 weeks? 20 weeks?
For the fucking love of Christ, people! Listen to the question? How far down the rabbit hole has the “christian” West fallen that THIS is the question? At the moment of conception it is life! God has breathed a soul into the body as it has begun to form. If this is not the case then liberals should have no problem with us killing the clumps of cells that will constitute a baby elephant, or baby sea turtles or dogs provided we do so within X weeks and because we don’t want to be burdened with puppies since “this is really not a good time in my life for this”.
Much of this, I believe, stems from continuing to permit women to have say in the way society is run, but that’s a post for another day. Instead I am hear to talk about something that should be even more grievous to christians than the visuals of a baby being summarily pulled apart in the womb and its extremities extracted, only to be disposed of as common garbage….
There is nothing special about babies that entitles them to heaven.
Society and christians in general have this predetermined notion that the innocence of children somehow shields them from hell. It does not. Observe the following scriptures:
Psalms 51:5 – Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Ecclesiastes 7:20 – For not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
Psalms 58:3 – The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
Romans 5:12 – Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
Romans 3:23 – For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 5:19 – For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
Genesis 8:21 – And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart [is] evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
Romans 3:10 – As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Mankind is born with a sinful nature. Born into sin. It falls upon every man and woman to recognize this, repent and call upon the name of Jesus as their lord and savior. This is why Jesus tells us we must be born again, this time of spirit and not of flesh, because the flesh is inherently corrupt and steeped in a sinful nature, and thus it will, in time, be destroyed. Only by accepting Him as our lord and savior are we given second birth!
Babies do not have the luxury of this choice.
God deals in the absolute. A man is either saved or unsaved. Holy or sinful. Thus he is either condemned to eternal death in hell or welcome into the kingdom of heaven as a child of God.
It is mankinds romanticism of innocence that leads us to believe that babies are somehow assured a place in heaven, but scripture says otherwise. Perhaps not directly, but adding up the entirety of what scripture says we cannot say otherwise.
Jesus assures adults that they will suffer greatly for leading children astray, not because they are bound for heaven, but because they have yet to have the knowledge, wisdom and maturity to make the effort to give their lives to Christ. That’s not to say that children cannot give their lives to Christ, only that they must make that decision to do so, and babies are incapable of doing so. Children are innocent in that they have not been exposed to the horrors of the world, but they have still been born with the same virus of sin as every other human on the planet.
If this were not the case then killing a baby in the womb would be the most merciful thing we could do for it, for we would be sparing the child the pains of this world and sending them straight to paradise.
We are, however, doing the complete opposite, and condemning the unborn to eternal suffering in hell.
I believe we remember our time here on earth after death, based on scripture. Read Luke 16 and Revelation 6. I believe the bibles assertion that we will live without pain and without suffering in the kingdom of heaven is truthful in that with the passage of eternal time we will forget those things that brought us pain and suffering. For those in eternal death, however, this may not be the case, and via abortion we are condemning countless souls to suffer eternally with no memory of ever having done anything wrong beyond being conceived.
This, above all, should place any christian well into the camp of anti-abortion, as in NO ABORTION for ANY REASON. The life of the mother? What about the soul of the child? I understand to lose an adult child is heartbreaking, but where is our hope in Christ if not in the promise of eternal life after death? Where is our hope in Christ that his will be done even if we don’t fully agree nor understand that will? A saved mother who dies while giving birth lives on in heaven where her child may yet still join her. A mother saved at the expense of her unborn child’s life condemns that child’s soul to the eternal fire of damnation.
This is the TRUE horror and pain in children lost. Our feelings and suffering on this earth are for but a time and can be recovered from. A soul lost is a soul lost for all eternity.
The church needs to abandon this feel-good but false teaching about babies and really drive home the reality of what is being done here. This is the ANTI-GREAT COMMISSION. Instead of harvesting souls for the kingdom we are giving them away to fill the pits of hell! And for what trade off? For women’s liberation? For a woman’s desire to be free to continue looking thin or desire to continue to sleep around or not to be “tied down with a baby”? For a man’s poor decision not to keep it in his pants?
WAKE UP, CHRISTIANS! DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD!! YOU’RE CONFORMING ALLOWS THIS TO CONTINUE! DEMAND ZERO ABORTION POLICIES FROM OUR CONSERVATIVE LAWMAKERS AND LET THEM KNOW WHY WE DEMAND IT!! STOP RIDING THE FENCE! BE HOT OR BE COLD, BUT LUKEWARM WILL ONLY END UP WITH YOU BEING UNKNOWN TO GOD!!
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
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:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
I understand the often used position on this subject is that “the bible doesn’t say”, and I understand people coming from that position. However that position only works if you are looking for the bible to say something specific about babies and children as opposed to mankind as a whole. MANKIND was born into sin: Man, woman and child. It’s not a pretty stance to take, no, and yes, it sounds extremely cruel when viewed from the side of humanity given our emotions and how we view the innocence of children. God, however, does not deal with emotions in the same way we do, though the bible proves he does have emotions toward us. When God commanded the Israelites to kill every man, woman and child of the wicked nations was that cruel? Was that wrong? Many unbelievers would say “yes”, without understanding of the mind of God, and that his ways are above our ways and his thoughts above our thoughts. Believers might quote this and say “well God commanded it in his wisdom, and we as followers of God understand that Gods wisdom doesn’t always conform to what we see as wisdom”.
This post is not meant to attack anyone but to deliver a message: Abortion must be stopped at all cost! Its repercussions are something far more sinister than the physical death of the unborn! That the subject is offensive is as it should be.
Hate me if you must, but with scriptural proof I will gladly rescind my position and remove this post.
