The Bible is much more than a book of religion.

Abortion Series #4: Pro-Choice / Pro-Life

Christians have failed to see that God is Pro-Choice as well as Pro-Life. 

Being pro-choice does not automatically mean one is pro-abortion. It means only what it says, pro-choice.  Deuteronomy 30:19 clearly shows us that God is pro-choice as well as pro-life. “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.”

 

God has His holy laws. There are serious consequences for breaking those laws, ultimately death. God gives us the choice of choosing sin or choosing to obey God’s Law. Adam and Eve chose to disobey God’s Law and died.

 

God desires man to choose life.  In fact, He has provided the gift of eternal life to anyone who will receive Christ.

 

God gives every mother of a baby within her womb the choice of allowing the baby to be born and He gives her the opportunity to become a real mother to that child, or release that baby to a loving family who can adopt it.   He also gives that mother the choice of  aborting and killing  her baby.  With that choice God pleads with the mother to choose life that both she and her baby can live.

 

Some Practical Conclusions

 

As Christian citizens we can do our part to promote morality in our nation. You  and I are free to do anything we believe will work as long as our actions do not violate Scripture or the laws of our land.  We may write letters, march for a cause, picket, boycott or do whatever we believe we ought to do.  We must not judge one another for our involvement or lack of involvement  in any method.  Each of us must determine before God how He would have us be involved in a cause.

 

As a Church, our one and only commission from Christ is to take the Gospel to the lost here and around the world.  Salvation through Christ changes hearts and lives and produces morality.  We cannot change hearts nor morality.  Only God can do that.

 

As Christian we must get right with God.  II Chronicles 7:14.  When we do, God will heal our land.

 

We must engage in spiritual warfare against Satan’s strongholds in this land.  That battle is best fought on our knees in prayer.  Prayer is far more powerful than social action.

 

To win the  lost we must approach every sinner, not with a cloak of stinking self-righteousness, not with fiery eyes, angry words, insulting slogans and name calling. We must not approach them as our enemies, but as enemies of God and captives of Satan.

 

If there is anything I see in the Gospels concerning Jesus is that He was always a friend of sinners.  Is that the way the lost see you and me?

 

You dear lady, may be contemplating an abortion.  You have a choice.  The consequences of that choice will mean life or death for you and your baby.  I beg you to choose life. You are loved and so is your baby. I urge you to get in touch with some Christians who love you and let them help you think through your decision and the consequences.
