The Bible says: For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father , but is of the world’ (1John 2:16).
What does pride have to do with abortion issues? Let’s go to the Word of God!
Proverbs 6:16-19 says: v16 These six things does the LORD hate; yea, seven are an abomination unto Him: v17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, v18 An heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, v19 A false witness that speaks lies, and he who sows discord among brethren.
Understand, these things mentioned are abominations unto God. According to Webster’s Dictionary, an abomination is:
That which is abominable; anything hateful, wicked, or shamefully vile; an object or state that excites disgust and hatred; a hateful or shameful vice; pollution.
Think of it, the very things God hates! That’s powerful. Pay particular attention to verse 17:
- A proud look – pride has a look, an attitude. Pride is selfishness.
- A lying tongue – people lie; usually to the benefit of themselves.
- Hands that shed innocent blood – an innocent bystander; an inn0cent would also be one that is unable to react or have an opinion.
Alright, what does that have to do with abortion?
ALOT. Women get abortions because they don’t want to ruin their life with a child to take care of. So, they shed innocent blood to benefit themselves ONLY. Abortion certainly does not benefit the child. God HATES the very thing that abortion is and stems from: pride, lies and murder.
I had reported some time ago that about 35% of women that get abortions claim to believe in God, not necessarily born-again. That being said, why would a God-believing woman want an abortion? So, so simple: the believe-ism is that God forgives everyone no matter what. What is misunderstood is that there are consequences of sin regardless of forgiveness.
‘Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid’ (Romans 6:1-2), the Bible says. And, ‘For the wages of sin is death’ (Romans 6:23).
About half of the women that have had an abortion will get another one, studies show. I have seen stories where Christian women have had multiple abortions AS CHRISTIANS and expect grace and mercy from God the Father. To be blunt, that ain’t happenin’! Jesus said to the Devil himself, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God (Luke 4:12).’
However, the Bible also says: ‘There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit’ (Romans 8:1). There is forgiveness, if you are repentant.
Abortion is an abomination.
