Bible Study: Inaction of the ‘New’ Prolife Movement, Part 1

We are continuing our Bible Study regarding Biblical prolife ministry and rescues. Click here to read the previous post. And so that there is no mistake of who we are and what we do, please read part of our Mission Statement:

KeepLifeLegal is a part of the Prolife Movement basing our missions in prolife ministry using biblical standards, not denominational or religious man-made dogma. We base this ministry on the Word of God only, through correct discernment of Scripture. We are ordained ministers/preachers/pastors; we are determined to show how public outreach and rescuing is biblical, a work of action and love. As the Book of Acts has proven and continues to demonstrate, it is a book and work without end, until the Gospel has been preached to all. 

2014-08-28-17-06-48.jpgThe Bible says: Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us,” [1Cor 5:5-7]. 

The ‘new’ prolife movement is prideful and religious, neither of which is biblical or sanctified. Leaders of these cult-like prolife groups are putting their ill-conceived schemes in front of biblical standards, those that Jesus taught, the Apostles continued with, even to this day. While the arrogance of a few has tarnished the prolife message, it is those called by God to do this Ministry which will promote LIFE and love.

God is not impressed with this ‘new’ prolife movement. The biggest mistake of the NPLM is not having the mind of Christ: But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them,because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For ‘who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him’? But we have the mind of Christ,” [1Cor 2:14-16].

To understand 1Cor 2:14-16 better, realize that the city of Corinth in that day was like the Las Vegas of today; idolatrous, pagan, carnal, and had temples with ‘consecrated’ prostitutes. The Apostle Paul planted a church squarely in the middle of that mire knowing it would have it’s challenges because of the city and the sin raging within it. Corinth needed the Gospel message, it needed the Mind of Christ, it needed a Savior.

After the church in Corinth was established, it was soon showing signs of the leaven leaking back in trying to confuse and pull back the new believers to their former debauched lives. The church in Corinth misunderstood the Gospel message, much like the NPLM had done with the Gospel message of prolife ministry to save the lost and dying at all costs. Prolife ministry in the beginning was Christ-centered and selfless. Today, the NPLM is dressed up as if it’s Easter Sunday, not Resurrection Day. The NPLM does not have the mind of Christ, but has many followers, board members and donors.

The NPLM has left the Gospel message, Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love,” [Rev 2:4]. And I say that wondering if they ever knew their first love. I follow the evidence, look for results. I see none within the New Prolife Movement. There is no Gospel, no Jesus, no LIFE or love.

“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal,” [1Cor 13:1].

Love took our Savior to the Cross. Love put the Apostles in prison multiple times for doing the unlawful. Out of fear and doubt, love is not where the NPLM is today. Rather, they are a ‘safe place’ because that’s where fear wants YOU.

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works,” [2Cor 11:13-15].

The Breath of LIFE – Exposing the ‘Life begins at Birth’ myth.

An anti-life person quotes the usual scripture to try and usurp God’s authority on the issue of Life: “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being,” Genesis 2:7.

The aforementioned anti-life person who quoted Genesis 2:7 as being a definition of personhood is an attorney that used the Bible which in itself is very interesting…and odd. I’m still mystified on how someone can say that the heartbeat does not determine life and that legislators should do the same when formulating new law.

Let’s determine what God actually does and says regarding Genesis 2:7.

The 7 point exposition of Genesis 2:7 is this:

  • God took what was common [dust] and created Life [human race] from it
  • God showed that He is God by making something out of nothing – a living soul which is eternal, from the dust of the Earth, which He also created
  • God’s Divine Omnipotence proves that the soul is BEFORE the body, God had the Breath of Life before the body was formed
  • The ‘breath of Life’ indicates that God made us different from animals by giving us an eternal soul and spirit
  • God had no other person or ‘vessel’ to carry this living soul to be birthed, like Mary was the vessel for Jesus, thus HAD to breathe life into Adam
  • God gave Adam and Eve the ability to physically procreate
  • Totally debunks the theory of evolution and the ‘Life begins at Birth’ theory because JESUS CHRIST [Jn 1:14, 14:7] DIED FOR US to ‘prepare a place’ [Jn 14:2] for us which makes us eternal beings that will one day dwell with Him forever [Jn 14:3].

Further, to say that ‘Life begins at Birth’, you would have to conclude that Life was not ordained by God but by science. Science cannot create; it can only teach what it has already been taught…in other words, how do we know how old that rock or fossil really is? We are told it is billions of years old by tests invented by imperfect people. How do we know that the test is correct if they cannot prove that the test is in fact infallible?

WINDOW TO THE WOMB? The ultrasound, or sonogram, physically shows that baby’s development as a window to the womb signifying that the baby has a head, limbs, a heartbeat, moves, yawns, smiles, dreams, and sucks his/her thumb. Ultrasound evidence cannot be ignored – that is equal to ignoring the person in line in front of you. Choosing to ignore does not make it so.

The Moderate Prolifer, part 2

Does religion or religious affiliation have anything to do with abortion? Yes and No.

Understanding Post Abortive women is an on-the-job learning experience, unfortunately. A Post Abortive woman/counselor wrote, “She said she had supported the right of a woman to obtain an abortion, but had grown up in a Christian family and never thought she would have one herself.” I wish I could say I never heard that song before, but I have – in my own life. Over half of Post Abortive women considered themselves Christian at the time of their abortion, and many more were raised in a ‘Christian’ home (catholic, main-line protestant, evangelical, etc) but had negated or denied their faith:

“Women identifying themselves as Protestants obtain 37.4% of all abortions in the U.S.; Catholic women account for 31.3%, Jewish women account for 1.3%, and women with no religious affiliation obtain 23.7% of all abortions. 18% of all abortions are performed on women who identify themselves as “Born-again/Evangelical” – AbortionNo.org.

Women that abort identify themselves as having a form of religion either in their lives at the time or when they were growing up. Evidently, whatever their affiliation is, their church has not professed what the Bible teaches regarding killing or harming another person, whether that person is born or not yet born. There is a lull and even a complete lax in teachings regarding LIFE – all LIFE. Churches today consider teaching against abortion and homosexuality archaic and even blasphemous. Obviously these new church leaders are reading the newspapers and novels, not the Bible.

Today, what the moderate prolifer needs to remember is what Jesus said near the end of His own life, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself”. The ‘neighbor’ is everyone, born and not yet born – that being said is it okay to abort anyone if you are to love your ‘neighbor’?

God is not a respecter of persons (Acts 10:34); He shows no partiality to anyone; all LIFE is valid and precious.
