Let me clarify that I embrace my current position regarding ectopic pregnancy and abortion with some reservations. After all, it does involve placing the life of the mother above the life of the fetus. Furthermore, to even suggest that abortion may possibly be acceptable under certain conditions, opens the door to abuse, and there is already widespread abuse with current abortion laws, as we saw earlier in this series. Let me also add that what I have stated here is only my personal opinion. This is not "thus saith the Lord" and I can't refer you to any Biblical verses to support my position. I am only relying upon personal pragmatism and common sense; so if you wish to disagree with me on this issue, that is your choice. As with all of the opinions that I express in my articles and series, you are perfectly within your right to disagree with my views. The real danger occurs when we disagree with what we find in God's Word.
To reiterate my point, apart from medically-verified, life- threatening pregnancies, I can't think of any other situation where abortion may be a justifiable option. Personally, as a Christian, the bottom line remains that it does not matter what you think, or what I think, or what anyone thinks, when it comes to the issue of abortion. All that truly matters is what God thinks; and the way we know what He thinks, is by carefully studying His Word. If our personal views are not in line with God's Word, then we are wrong, no matter how good or how logical of an argument we may try to present. As I've explained a number of times before, for God-fearing, Bible- believing Christians, God's Word is the final authority in all matters. While the Scriptures do not offer us precise advice regarding the specific issue of abortion, as we have already seen, God is in favor of life, and murder is viewed as a very serious punishable offense. How much more does this hold true when it involves the intentional slaughter of so many unborn innocent children who have no voice of their own?
I feel so sorry for those people who have become so deceived by modern scientific explanations, and the misguided medical opinions of the profiteering abortionists, who claim that an embryo is "nothing more than a ball of cells", and not truly a person. Either through ignorance, or perhaps through their own selfishness, these young girls' and women's hearts have become hardened, and their consciences numbed, so that they can no longer clearly see the cold-hearted reality regarding the practice of abortion. It is encouraging to know that at least some of these murderous abortionists, such as Doctor George Tiller, a late-term abortionist in Wichita, Kansas, USA, are finally being brought to trial for their horrible crimes against innocent unborn children. The trial of Doctor George Tiller will not put a full end to the slaughter, but it is definitely a step in the right direction.
It is time for everyone to wake up, to shake off our blind ignorance, and to stop being deceived and brainwashed by all of the lies that are being propagated by the forces of the pro-abortion camp. It is time to let the truth of God's Word shine in our hearts, and then we will truly be set free; for as Jesus Himself promised in the Gospel of John:
". . . if ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free . . . If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed."
John 8:31a-32, 36, KJV
Before concluding this series, I would like to address those women and minors who have chosen to abort their children. If you have taken one life through the act of abortion; if you have sacrificed your unborn child to the abortionist, I urge you to make amends with the Lord as soon as possible. If you cry out for His Mercy, perhaps He will hear you, and extend His compassion to you. If what you did was truly done out of childish ignorance, the Lord is willing to forgive you. In fact, it is possible that He already has forgiven you, and that you have been carrying your burden for far too long. Consider the truth of the following Bible verses:
"It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness."
Lamentations 3:22-23, KJV
"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."
Isaiah 1:18, KJV
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
Matthew 11:28-30, KJV
So as you can hopefully see, the Lord is more than willing to forgive us for our sins; even the unwise and selfish sin of abortion. It is our very sins and mistakes which keep us humble, and which also teach us valuable lessons throughout life. A humble man, or woman, is one who has made a lot of mistakes throughout life, and yet who has found forgiveness through Jesus Christ. As the old saying goes, honesty comes before humility. Yet, at the same time, the greater sin is when we refuse to come to the Light, and try to hide our sins; which is why Jesus also said the following regarding those Jews who had rejected Him:
"And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved."
John 3:19-20, KJV
Jesus has already paid the price for your sins, including the sin of abortion, and He is willing to forgive you, but you must come to Him in meekness and humility, and seek His forgiveness. I hope that you will do so soon.
It is my hope that you have found this series on abortion to be informative, and that you have been both encouraged and blessed by it as well. If that is the case, please consider sharing the URL for the first part of this series with your friends. As you surely understand, abortion is an extremely important issue, and sharing this series with others may possibly give them the information that they need in order to save a life, or perhaps even many lives. You can help the slaughter of the innocent to stop. Thanks so much.
