I think it is pretty interesting that we have another presidential candidate in the United States of America that is suggesting that killing a baby inside a mother’s womb is just fine and dandy with God. In fact, she says that the churches just need to get over it and get with the program and the new trends. Forget about that “ancient book” with those “outdated” Biblical principles. Evolution is in… Creationism is out!
“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.” (Psalm 139: 13-14)
Fearfully and wonderfully made by God Himself surely should make a difference to us than if we truly derived from pond scum, became monkeys and eventually human. It used to be common knowledge that at the moment of conception there is a human being present. What happened? Thou shall not kill was never erased from our Bibles.
Let’s get back to Hillary. It seems to me that if she wants churches to change their deep-seeded beliefs about reproductive “rights” and other issues, churches would have to re-define what God says in the Bible about human life. It sounds like Hillary wants to re-write the Bible and play God!
I find it quite incredible that she feels perfectly comfortable making this suggestion to the churches. Obviously, when engaged in a political campaign wouldn’t the candidate do and say things that they believe will help their campaign and win the election? If Miss Hillary didn’t think there was any chance of changing the churches mind about abortion, why would she even bring it up? I believe she wants the churches to officially change their stance on abortion. I am thinking she means legally and in writing. When I think of the Church in America, I think of the 80% of self-proclaiming believers. The frightening thought that went through my head when I saw how bold Hillary’s suggestion was, is that I believe too many Christians have already sided with Hillary. Hillary feels extremely comfortable voicing her opinions for a reason.
I truly believe that it is time for every church to stand firm on God’s Word and clarify what it means to be 100% pro-life. Do We the People still believe that in America the unborn have a right to life? Life is a fundamental right given to us by our Creator. When I say I am 100% pro-life, I mean that whether the baby was conceived in a lab as a result of reproductive technologies, conceived in the womb as a result of rape, conceived out of wedlock, etc., that baby is a human baby at every single stage of development. We were all embryos, then fetuses, and then babies. It truly astonishes me that this is even a debate anymore, given modern technologies. We all know the baby is a separate human being from the mother by now. This is the “inconvenient truth.” We are killing off entire populations of human beings that individuals deem inconvenient.
I engage in conversations with people all the time and sadly, I see so much misunderstanding even amongst Christians about the pro-life debate. I have heard Christians say that if a woman is raped, she should be able to get a “safe abortion.” My question is safe for whom? That baby’s life was just ended. That doesn’t sound safe to me at all. I hear Christians that vote for candidates that are not 100% pro-life justify their vote because the other candidate was worse. What does that mean? Does one candidate support less abortion? Isn’t one innocent human life worth saving?
If Christians can’t get this straight in their heads and take a firm stance, I am afraid too many will continue to play God in America and keep deciding which lives are worth keeping. When we take a look through the Bible, we see God created the first human man with mud. The second human being was literally taken from the man and was a woman. God says His Creation was very good. (Genesis: 1-2) God breathes life into every human being and in my opinion that fact isn’t taken as seriously as it should be anymore.
We know God doesn’t make mistakes. Do you think He was trying to teach us something when He created Adam and Eve differently and then proceeded to tell them how to increase the human population differently? That is two different ways He created and then gave us instruction how to continue populating His earth. A human life is a human life, no matter how it is conceived.
We are created by God in His image. God gives life and we have no right to decide any innocent human life should be terminated. We also have no right to re-write or add or subtract from the Bible. See Revelation 22:18-19. It makes a difference.
