Just Because God Loves to Kill Babies, Doesn't Give You Permission!

During Sunday school class we planned protests at abortion clinics. After class, one of our newer members approached me and said,“Brother Harry, I have scoured the Bible and haven’t found any passages outlawing abortion. So how do we know it’s wrong?” I immediately called the class back to order and rebuked this novice Christian in front of his peers. Only a weak Christian or backslider would question a doctrine accepted by True Christians for many years. If your preacher says something is a sin, it’s a sin, no questions asked.

It is true that the Bible contains no verses prohibiting voluntary abortion. That, in and of itself, shows that it is a sin. The only references to abortion in the Bible are to coerced abortion as a punishment for nonbelievers, sinners and those who fail to recognize God’s chosen people. In Second Kings, we learn that Menahem, leader of the Israelites, smote all the people who refused to follow him “and all the women therein that were with child he ripped up”(2 Kings 15:16). Later, in Hosea, we learn that because the land of Samaria rejected God,“Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up”(Hosea 13:16). Hosea decided to carry out God’s vengeance on the people by killing the unborn babies carried by the heathen women. He promised to “slay even the beloved fruit of their womb”(Hosea 9:16).

Since killing unborn children is one of the many punishments followers of God have inflicted on nonbelievers, it is obviously not an act any True Christians may undertake for themselves by choice. Furthermore, humans have no business performing abortions because that is God’s role. After all, it was God who killed all the unborn children on the planet (other than those of Noah’s immediate family) when He drowned everyone with the Great Flood (Genesis 7:23). And it was God who inflicted abortion on all the pregnant women when he rained fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gomorrah, killing everyone who lived therein (Genesis 19:24-25). And it was God who killed the unborn babies during the countless plagues and pestilence he inflicted on the planet throughout history. Abortion is obviously an act God reserves for punishing those groups of people who rub him the wrong way. It is not an act to be performed at human whim.

There is absolutely no reason to opt for abortion when God allows us, and in some instances, orders us, to rid ourselves of troublesome children after they’re born. Wasn’t it God who said,“Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones”(Psalms 137:9)? Why insist on prenatal killing when the post-natal killing options are so widespread? The Bible authorizes us to kill just about any child who becomes burdensome. According to Deuteronomy, if a child is unruly and disobedient, we not only have the option of killing him, but it is mandatory that he be stoned to death (Deuteronomy 21:18-21). The same is true for a child who speaks to us with foul language (Exodus 21:17). Or a child who hits us (Exodus 21:15).

The bottom line is that only coerced abortion is allowed in the Bible, not abortion on demand. And God, in his infinite compassion, provided us with the means of eliminating troublesome children once they are born and we know for sure they are unwanted. So tell your skeptical acquaintances to put away the coat hangers, once and for all, and let the child be born, but have stones and the Proverbial rod handy, just in case.

Just because you don't agree doesn't give you the right to tell me what is right in YOUR eyes. Beliefs (and religion) are like a penis, it's okay to have one but we have a problem when you start to shove it down my (and anyone else's) throat. Your morals are just that, YOURS. If I go to hell, so be it, I'll ride solo without your jabber along the way.

an unborn child has a heartbeat there for making it a human and no one has the right to kill it

God Almighty has the right to murder any child whenever He chooses. Who are you to challenge the Lord?

the heartbeat is 24 days after conception, not before that. So what are you trying to say?

You are either just trying to start crap or crazy but God doesn't "murder" people. God creates life and therefore is able to take it. He created the universe and life. But God doesn't "murder" as a evil person would do. If you were a real preacher you'd know that but I suspect you're pretending to be a preacher to start an argument.

Yes God most certainly does murder but with righteous indignation. You had better re-read your KJV Bible again and stop trying to pervert His Holy Word before He snatches a knot in your crooked spine casting you into the infernal regions!

Amen!

God is not fair. Accept that. Fairness is a opinion of man. God is just. There is a difference and a dictionary may help you with this understanding.

What if God gives me a right to take it? Not kidding. What if a voice or a feeling tells me so? God and angels come in a voice or a feeling.

People take God on faith, just as a child takes the tooth fairy and Santa Clause on faith.

YES! Lets FORCE hookers, junkies, criminals, and crazy people to have kids! Poor penniless people can afford them! Don't let them lie and say just because they live in a homeless shelter, dirty alleyway, or in an old car that they can't!!! And any 12 year old can have one. Make her! So what if a girl and boy has to drop out of school and ruin their lives, make that teen girl have it!!

I'm religious and believe in the bible so I don't care how much suffering I cause as long as it ain't me.
