The Murder Of Abortion

abortion

There’s a genocide which is playing out today and it’s not overseas in a faraway land, this atrocity is happening in our backyard. The murder of innocent babies is the horror I’m referencing which is being led by Planned Parenthood, its founder Margret Sanger once said referring to infants.

The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it. – Margret Sanger

Margret Sanger was the female version of Adolf Hitler, Hitler dehumanized the Jews in the second world war which lead to 6 Million European Jews Murdered During the Holocaust. These people were shot, hung, gassed, and tossed into ovens among other unspeakable acts. Hitler wanted to eradicate the Jews from the face of the earth, and he had the help to do it with those who blindly followed him.

Today we face the same situation, we have a new genocide which dwarfs the statistics of the Holocaust. The numbers are staggering, 1 abortion every 30 seconds, Abortions per day: 2,899; Total number of abortions in the U.S. 1973-2013: 56.5 million+. If you’d like to look more into the statistics you can find them here at all.org.

Dear reader, please consider, what makes abortion any different from the Holocaust or slavery? Absolutely nothing, both dehumanized individuals so that horrific atrocities took place. The safest place for a baby to be is inside the mother’s womb, and now it seems today it’s the most dangerous place for a baby. Women are killing their own babies by the boatloads due to unselfishness.

Excuses like “what if the baby is born mentally disabled?” or “what if the baby is born into a poor family?” or “what if that baby is the result of a rape?”. None of these excuses merits the act of murder, it’s not the baby’s fault of the rapist (father), are we to now kill people who are somehow disabled, should we also kill homeless people because they’re poor? Society sunk to a new low!

Adoption is always available and you don’t have to kill your baby, someone else out there is more than willing to love your baby and give him/her a loving home.

What Are We To Do?

This is a Christian blog and we wholeheartedly believe in what the Bible has to say. In the Bible, there were at times people who sacrificed their children to a false god called Baal or Molech. These children taken to an altar and placed on a piping hot statue which had outstretched arms, they would lay the child on this scorching idol and the children would scream in agony. The Moabites would beat on drums in order to drown out the screams.

There are now new altars for child sacrifices these abortion clinics, now known as murder mills. When will the madness stop? Unfortunately, the Bible says that it won’t anytime soon, in fact it will become worse. The Lord Jesus spoke about these days in which we live, the last days.

Matthew 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

God says that He hates those who shed innocent blood.

Proverbs 6:16-19 These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness [that] speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

We are told in the Old Testament by God not to murder in the Ten Commandments in both the books Exodus and Deuteronomy.

Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not kill.
Deuteronomy 5:17 Thou shalt not kill.

In the New Testament, the Lord Jesus also expounded upon this in the book of Matthew saying that if you hate someone you’re a murder at heart and will be in danger of hell.

Matthew 5:21-22 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

Paul the apostle a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ touched upon this as well in the book of Romans.

Romans 13:9-10 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if [there be] any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love [is] the fulfilling of the law.

The Solution

O believer, we know that the days are getting darker by the moment, we need to reach out to these lost souls with the love of Christ, “…How shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:14)

Romans 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

We’re told that the Gospel is “the power of God unto salvation” (Romans 1:16). As Christians, we need to stand outside of places like Planned Parenthood and stand up against this great evil. We need to be ready to preach the Gospel the good news of salvation to these men and woman who are taking their unborn baby to these murder mills to be slaughtered. They need to hear that God is willing to save them and forgive them of their sins. That they can have a new life in Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 5:17-18 Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things [are] of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

To Those Contemplating Abortion

Please, you don’t need to kill your baby if you do you will never be the same again; you’ll have blood-stained hands and the memories will stay with you forever. We are pleading with you, Planned Parenthood doesn’t care about you, all they want to do is kill your baby and charge you money for it. Here’s a quote from Planned Parenthood of how much they will charge to murder your unborn baby.

Nationwide, the cost at health centers ranges from about $350 to $950 for abortion in the first trimester. The cost is usually more for a second-trimester abortion. Costs vary depending on how long you’ve been pregnant and where you go. Hospitals generally cost more. – Planned Parenthood

These people are murderers and will have to answer to God for their crimes against humanity. The countless body parts of babies which end up in a dumpster or “recycling” bin. They need Jesus and so do you! God is willing to forgive you but you need to come to Him as a guilty sinner and He promises that He will forget all your sins.

Psalm 103:11-12 For as the heaven is high above the earth, [so] great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, [so] far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

The only way to have this forgiveness is to place your trust in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. If you do you’ll be given eternal life and peace with God.

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

Romans 10:9-11 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Are you ready to confess the Lord Jesus Christ and have Him as your Lord and Saviour? The Bible says that if you do you won’t have to suffer in eternal torment in hell, and you’ll have a home in heaven. Why not trust Him today you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!!

WHEN YOU’RE THE ONLY CHRISTIAN IN THE FAMILY

family

What should Christians do when they’re not only surrounded by unbelievers but live under the same roof? Perhaps you’ve been raised in a secular home, Jewish, Muslim or another religion. It’s difficult enough stepping outside into an unbelieving world, but what if your own enemies are your family?

The Lord Jesus spoke on these issues many times even His own family didn’t believe Him (John 7:5). As believers out in the world if God opens a door to preach Christ there’s always a possibility of them rejecting the gospel and you can walk away. But it’s not that simple when it’s your family denying the only salvation they have.

RAISED CHRISTIAN

There are brothers and sisters who’ve had the privilege of being reared in a good Christian home, where the Word of God resides and parents (father and mother) live by God’s Word, where Jesus Christ is the centre of the home and its doors are open and welcoming to all. I’ve never had the privilege of being raised in such a home and at times wondered what it’s like?

Other times I thank God that while it’s a wonderful privilege being raised by Christian parents and coming from a history of saved family members, the fact that I grew up in a non-Christian home makes me appreciate the Lord Jesus even more. I’ll explain.

UNDER THE SOUND OF THE GOSPEL

We know that God is sovereign and when He determines to pull someone out of the grips of death and have true love flow forth from that soul He just saved it’s a beautiful thing to behold. True conversion! There are children who are from Christian families who pray at every meal, talk about the Lord, have members of the family that are concerned with their salvation bring them up in the ways of God. And they’ve attended assembly and Sunday school.

That said because God has always been prevalent in their lives they might take the things of God for granted. A bible on the dining room table has always been “normal” for them. Hearing about Jesus Christ dying on the cross for them because they’re sinners is everyday life. And we have unconverted children living among these wonderful truths and maybe believe because they come from such a home are saved. Hence the reason why parents continuously ask their children who is Jesus Christ to them, praying that they get saved one day. How tragic it would be having being raised under the sound of the gospel and never getting saved.

GROWING UP WITHOUT THE GOSPEL

Then there’s the other side those who’ve been raised with other beliefs, who have absolutely no idea what’s the gospel. Either they’ve been raised in a works based religion or worse they’ve been brought up in a secular humanistic world view. I myself fall into that second category.

Walk around and ask someone who’s Jesus Christ and what does He mean to you and you’ll get mixed reactions. They might say “Jesus I love Jesus” and with the same breath will blaspheme His precious name. If Muslim will say “He’s only a profit”. If Atheist will say “there is no God”. Maybe they worship a false Jesus like the JW’s or Mormons. Others will give you a look as if you’re completely nuts or just don’t know who Jesus really is.

The sad thing is this is the majority of people. For the majority of my life I grew up without God on my way to a lost eternity and I thank the Lord every day that He saved a wicked sinner like myself by reaching out and lighting my dark soul. And many who grow up like me never do come to know the Lord and are in hell wishing they did. That’s why it’s so important for Christians to share the gospel anyway they can.

WHEN THE HOUSEHOLD IS AGAINST YOU

The question remains if you’re the only Christian in the family and they’ve resisted the gospel or reject the only salvation in Jesus Christ how do we respond? This is assuming you’ve already presented the gospel to your family. There are a few ways we can still proclaim the gospel, we can give to prayer that God will open a door for you to share the gospel.

Ask God to intervene in our family members lives and put another believer in their path, in the workplace or a stranger walking by. We also have to be aware that unbelievers are always watching us even when we think their not. And if our priorities are right they’ll see fruit in our lives, reading our bibles and living a godly life (1 Peter 3:1). We believe that because our families know us best and have seen a radical change in us that would be enough to make them believers. The bible says that those who know you best are the ones who will be the hardest to reach (Matthew 13:57, Mark 6:4, Luke 4:24).

I’m learning this myself being surrounded by unbelievers who say eat, drink and be merry (1 Corinthians 15:32), this is how the world thinks, they’re looking at the world through secular glasses. They believe in slogans like “just do it ” the “now” generation of secular humanism. Living without any hope beyond the grave and if that’s the view they take then what meaning will they have in life? Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die.

Thank the Lord that He’s faithful and true and pulls us out of a dark lost world and into light. Being that we’re children of light living in a dark world we can expect friction, we are the salt of the earth (Matthew 5:13). When salt gets into a wound it aggravates and stings! This doesn’t mean go around purposefully aggravating people it simply means that by your testimony and presence you’ll have an effect on those who’re in darkness.

Amos 3:3 “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”

PRAYER

We have to keep our families in prayer asking God to soften their hearts to the gospel. Relying on the Father and remaining faithful is key, the Lord knows what’s best and how to approach all situations. We would love to see our loved ones become saved today homeward bound for Heaven but we also have to remember it needs to be according to God’s timing, His timing is always perfect. God bless.
