No Christian Has Any Cause to Embrace or Accept Abortion as Anything Other than MURDER
By David Jolly
Over the last 50-years, there has been a huge change in the Christian Church in America.
In my youth, the majority of Americans were Christian and many strongly adhered to Scriptural teachings. They strongly defended their faith. Atheists and other non-believers were often shunned and treated as social outcasts.
All that began to change in the 1960s. Many younger people began to rebel against parents, government and all authority, including the church. As the open rebellion spread across the nation in what some describe as the hippie, free love, flower power or anti-Vietnam war craze, many churches turned to worldly means in their attempts to keep and attract the younger people. Many churches changed to more contemporary music, complete with musicians in trying to reach out to the younger crowd.
Not only did many churches change their music, but they changed their style of preaching. They stopped preaching the true message of the Gospel and messages found in the Bible. Preachers shortened their messages and began to change their message. Instead of preaching on sin and repentance, they preached on topics to tickle the ears of younger people.
Thus began, or escalated, the current decline within the Christian church that we see today. With the advancement of anti-biblical liberalism infiltrated the church, much like yeast infiltrates an entire lump of dough, many former biblical taboos became acceptable or tolerable, no longer condemned as they once were. Many so-called Christians suddenly saw no problem with living together and having sex together before marriage. The divorce rate among Christians increased. Today, many so-called or compromised Christian churches accept all forms of homosexuality as being normal. Just look at how many gays and lesbians are not only going to these churches but have become church leaders.
Additionally, more and more Christians are embracing abortion as a right instead of just the idea of murdering their unborn children. They have been so indoctrinated by anti-biblical liberalism that they fail to understand just how wrong abortion is.
My wife and I read Scripture together every night before going to bed and we recently read through the book of Leviticus. As we read one particular section, I could not help but think of how this relates to abortion:
Leviticus 20:1-5 “The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Say to the people of Israel, Any one of the people of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones. 3 I myself will set my face against that man and will cut him off from among his people, because he has given one of his children to Molech, to make my sanctuary unclean and to profane my holy name. 4 And if the people of the land do at all close their eyes to that man when he gives one of his children to Molech, and do not put him to death, 5 then I will set my face against that man and against his clan and will cut them off from among their people, him and all who follow him in whoring after Molech.”
Women today are not sacrificing their unborn to Molech, but a different pagan and false god – the god of liberalism, lust, selfishness, hedonism, animalistic desires, promiscuousness. Call it what you want, they amount to the same thing. Millions of women continue to offer the lives of their children to their false god. They no longer fear the God of the Bible or pay any attention to what He says about sacrificing one’s children.
If you hear any Christian supporting abortion, as more and more are doing, direct them to Leviticus 20 and to Matthew 18:6,10,14:
“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it [d]would be better for him to have a [e]heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”
“‘See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven continually see the face of My Father who is in heaven’.”
“So it is not the will [j]of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones perish.”
No Christian has any cause to embrace or accept abortion as anything other than murder.
