Bible Study: The Accountability of Abortion Sin, Romans 6

In this study, we will look at the sin of abortion from the unsaved pro-abortion side, starting with the altar of Molech. Molech sacrificed children to another god, or rather he sacrificed against the one true God, murdering His creation. This evil sin of child killing was addressed in Leviticus 18:21, “And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, not shall you profane the name of your God: I am the Lord.”

KEEPLIFELEGALGod made it clear that it was as profane to kill these children upon the altar of Molech as it is to profane the name of God; He associates Himself with His Creation, and killing any of them is as killing Him. These children were a literal burnt offering to a false god, much like today as the unborn are murdered upon the altar of the false god of abortion.

Is abortion a religion? Yes. Anything can be a religion, which was addressed in the second commandment, “You shall have no other gods before Me,” Exodus 20:3. Interestingly, the definition of religion, in part, says: “a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.” Read the entire definition here. NOT ONE TIME was God or Jesus mentioned in that, which proves religion has absolutely NOTHING to do with God or Jesus.

Abortion is a religion, with their own gods and worship and devoted followers. Abortion’s ancestry is rooted in the ritualistic burnt offering of children upon an altar of a false god as worship, as it is today.

Today, the religious continues to kill through abortion, believing in their sin rather than the one true God. “…Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? Romans 6:1. They make an idol out of abortion, they worship it and love it. With every religion, there is an idol, a false ‘god’. Making an idol out of anything is making a religion, a thing that is unholy, to preserve a sin to somehow make it ‘holy’. Their religion of abortion – God calls it sin – continues because they believe in a false god, a false grace, a false hope, a false redemption, that it is sanctified by their personal ‘god’.

Conversely, some professing Christians

The stain on the floor is blood.

hold onto another Jesus, another Gospel, another grace, another cross, rather than the Cross of Christ when excusing abortion. A recent story said that a Pastor was witnessing outside of an abortion mill when a woman came for an appointment whose family is a member of his church. He knew her personally, even baptized her. Then, why was she there? She heard the Gospel and the message of life, and still she came for an abortion appointment. Whose God does she believe?

“What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid,” Romans 6:15. But that is exactly what happened, she and many other professing Christians put their unborn child upon the altar of abortion because they believe the false god and it’s false grace. I know people in Gospel preaching churches that will sin because they have hope in another Jesus, another Gospel, that sin will be forever hidden and even sanctified. Being hidden is not accurate because the Bible says “But if you do not do so, then take note, you have sinned against the Lord; and be sure your sin will find you out,” (Numb 32:23.) And while it is true that a woman can be forgiven of her abortion sin, there will still be consequences of that sin, for a time that can take years.

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap,” Galatians 6:7. Christian men and women who “neglect so great a salvation” put themselves on that same altar as their unborn child. They know the Way, ignore it, and expect not to have consequences – results – from the sin of abortion.

KEEPLIFELEGALFriends, this is just not that hard. God has NEVER changed, not for any person or any thing or any law: “For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life,” (Gal 6:8). The One True God calls abortion sin an abomination. God does not cause confusion, but gives us hope and love and Jesus, “For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints,” (1Cor 14:33).

The author of confusion – the devil himself – puts false gods before us to frustrate our relationship with God and cause us to sin. Abortion is the god of many, a religion that is vast, holy to those who admire and worship it. But it’s consequence is eternal.

“But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him,” (1Cor 8:6).

A Call to Mobilize the Church: Preaching An Election Message, Engage Prayer Watches & Fasting

This is the Friday before the greatest and most important election of our time, perhap2014-04-11 08.23.36s of all time. We choose between establishment and anti-establishment, proabort and prolife, anti-constitutionalist and a defender of the Constitution, a liar and a successful
businessman. Any other ‘choice’ is without merit and will only hold value to the anti-voter, and such is incredibly selfish and prideful. If you write in a candidate, you might as well jot down Mickey Mouse because he has a better chance than Hoefling and Johnson, et al.

The Supreme Court is the most important reason you would vote one way or the other. The second most important is upholding what makes America Great and the envy of the world: KEEPLIFELEGALThe Constitution. ‘Women’ like Hillary want to mold America into a nanny state, Trump wants the Tenth Amendment to be what it was meant to be. He is right to bring federal wrongs back to the voters, not a group of black robes who don’t have a dog in the fight. States DID decide on abortion, gun rights, traditional marriage, restroom assignments, voting laws and ‘refugees’.

Trump promising to repeal the Johnson Amendment is one of the greatest campaign pledges that would stop muzzling the Church in regard to political issues. Hillary wants to tax the Church: “…the Johnson amendment has proven to be a dangerous tool, allowing political appointees at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to determine when moral issues become political issues — and effectively censor churches and religious organizations with the threat of crippling penalties and loss of tax exempt status.” The Bible clearly teaches against murder, child sacrifice, homosexuality – Hillary wants to force the Church to teach social justice, not  what the Bible teaches. Preachers, Ministers and Pastors could see prison time for ‘hate crimes’. And if this woman and her agenda is elected, Freedom of Speech and Religious Freedom will be a distant memory.

As Ministers and Pastors, we cannot be muzzled or silenced for fear of prison or fines. At this point, not having tax exempt status allows some of us to have our opinion out loud without fear from the pulpit. And as Ministers and Pastors, we are called preach  the Word, in its fullness without apology in the pulpit, in the public square, and on the sidewalk.

This Sunday, PREACH an election message, with prayer and fasting, without apology. This may be the last time you can if a heretic is elected. In summary, don’t be stupid, don’t be prideful. Your imaginary election will not survive, but Hillary and Trump will. Get over it. Vote. Vote to uphold the Constitution. Vote to make the Church great again.


EXPOSING THE ABORTION AGENDA FROM THE PULPIT, ON THE SIDEWALK, THE MEDIA & IN THE STATEHOUSE: “Once I realized that my abortion was a tragedy and not an accomplishment, I was able to discern correctly that abortion is, indeed, MURDER.” ~ Rev. Katherine, post-abortive minister, counselor, AMERICAN.

YOU can contribute to KeepLifeLegal by simply going to the sidewalk, praying, voting for and supporting prolife candidates.

Emergency Contraception as BAIT?

[OXYMORON EXAMPLE: ‘LIBERAL LOGIC’] The ‘morning-after pill’ for little girls redefines the ‘Liberal Logic’ of the SO-CALLED ‘war on women’ to a hostile hand-to-hand combat for parental rights of our precious little daughters.

Some things the Left does is just plain stupid and laughable…but putting emergency contraception, the ‘morning after pill’, in the hands of children legally has to be the most ignorant, disturbing and harmful thing they have done since Roe v. Wade. I’m nearly speechless…nearly.

Our figure heads at-large have determined that children are grown up enough to buy and take a pill that will kill a developing unborn child – but expand your mind for just a second, because if you do you will GET that an underage child had sex and might be pregnant which is RAPE and ILLEGAL….for now. You have to look at the implication that statutory rape might not be so illegal soon. With a loophole as big as kids buying the morning-after pill, how much longer will it take to make sex with children legal?

SIDENOTE: Minors cannot smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol, vote, gamble or go to war…but they can get abortions and Emergency Contraception (morning-after pill) without a parents knowledge or consent.

Which brings me to my LIES PROCHOICERS SAY QUOTE OF THE WEEK: ‘Teens who sought emergency contraception generally resorted to it because of a failure of condoms, the pediatric academy reported.’ Read the rest here. Seriously, ‘failure of condoms’??? Incredible.

I can go through all the moral and Christian implications (and I just may…) but the fact remains that children have been put up for sale by the government to every predator, pedophile, pimp and pervert to defile our young girls LEGALLY, not to mention the innumerable amount of unborn children that will die as a result of it. How can any one person wrap their mind around that? Will you, Mr. and Mrs. Public, take that kind of responsibility of our young girls? If you voted for Obama, you just did.

Then you also need to look at the religious liberty implications…considering that these pills kill unborn children is just another way for the Left to take away your ability to parent and teach your child Christian and moral responsibilities regarding their body, their choices and being accountable to parents and God. Too many people think that if the government says so, it’s so….and it is not…the tail is wagging the dog. Parents have the right to parent their children – FOR NOW – and parents should consider that there will be a day when that privilege can be taken away.

This so-called Liberal ‘War on Women’ is beyond what any of us would have thought possible. Our bodies have been a public nuisance and a public whipping post since the 60’s. We’ve been used by the media as sex objects with no morals or scruples for over 50 years. But now the Liberals are attacking our daughters AGAIN? Haven’t our daughters been indoctrinated enough with everything else the government and the media throws at them?

The Liberal Logic of ‘get a stick and kill it’ mentality is beyond evil. Since we are the child-bearers we are targeted for aborting our unborn girls to curtail what the masses consider to be MORE child-bearers that might subject our government for healthcare, food and shelter.

Our self-created ‘culture’ is dressing up our daughters for streetwalking; if you don’t think that’s true, go to your local mall and department stores and look at the short shorts, teeny skirts, half tops, strappy sandals and tiny bikinis….all in the kid’s section. And don’t get me started on the Junior’s section. And I’d bet the farm you don’t see that in the boy’s section.

The ‘war on women’ is a hostile take-over of parental rights of our precious little daughters and their rights as a parent, some day.

In Defense of Traditional Marriage and Natural Families

These are 3 separate articles originally written/posted Oct. 2009 which is STILL the subject of the hour. America continues to be bullied to accept an agenda that is clearly unbiblical and unnatural and has deliberately put your moral and religious conscience under the bus.

STAND UP FOR TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE AND NATURAL FAMILY.

American Family Association says it best:  Everywhere hate crimes laws have gone into effect, they have been quickly used to intimidate, silence and punish people of faith who express deeply held religious objections to the normalization of homosexuality…Such laws not only punish officially disapproved speech and thought, they create two tiers of victims. Under hate crimes laws, some victims get more protections than others, which violate the fundamental American principle of equality under the law.

Obama will deliver the Human Rights (Campaign) event’s speech tomorrow night (10/10/09) at HRC’s 13th annual national dinner. Gay activists want the president to say he will oppose measures intended to compromise LGBT rights:

“We are honored to share this night with President Obama, who has called upon our nation to embrace LGBT people as brothers and sisters,” said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese.  “It is fitting that he will speak to our community on the night that we pay tribute to his friend and mentor Senator Edward Kennedy, who knew that as president, Barack Obama would take on the unfinished business of this nation – equal rights for the LGBT community, and for every person who believes in liberty and justice for all.”

How can there be liberty and justice for all when we as Christians are NOT included in any protection from the government through any legislation from this new administration? How do you reconcile this with the American Public which is 77% Christian? This cannot be justified or defensible.

It is not the White House’s job to make everyone happy – their responsibility is to make sure all Americans follow the law to the letter, not make it up as they go along. Anything else is a poor attempt at trying to control and bind the hands of God by allowing the Gay Agenda in public schools, churches and the government.

Defense of Marriage Act – HR3396: (1996) To define and protect the institution of marriage; `In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, or of any ruling, regulation, or interpretation of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States, the word `marriage’ means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word `spouse’ refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.’

The Human Rights Campaign called on the president to repeal DOMA, saying ‘it is time for you to use your leadership to translate these principles into meaningful action.’ House Democrats introduced legislation last month that would overturn DOMA. And of course, the Gay Agenda has their version, or fiction, of ‘marriage’ – the Respect for Marriage Act. Sounds nice, eh? Sounds so normal and almost soccer mom-ish, doesn’t it? Well, it’s Respect for SAME SEX Marriage – only.

The bill (Respect for Marriage Act, HR 3567) would repeal all three sections of DOMA – which federally defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman – including section 1, which is the name; section 2, which instructs states not to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states; and section 3, which prohibits the federal government from recognizing legally performed same-sex marriages.

Essentially what the gay community wants, according to the RMA and Rep. Barney Frank, is recognition of their legal marriage in a state where same sex marriage is not legal in order to gain access to federal and state money and spousal benefits – along with defining legal marriage with ‘persons’, not a man and woman.

However, as I had reported just last week, a ‘couple’ moved to Texas and filed for divorce. Legally, same sex marriage is not recognized in Texas which would make their request null and void. Of course, they are taking steps to repeal instead of going back to the state where they got ‘married’ to get divorced.

Mark 10:6-9 says, in the words of Jesus Christ – v6 ‘But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ v7 ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8 and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. v9 Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.’ –NKJV-

Jesus emphasizes that marriage, as a permanent relationship between a man and a woman, goes back to God’s purpose at the beginning of creation. His purpose being that married couples bear children; Genesis 1:27-28. Nowhere in Scripture was artificial insemination or IVF mentioned to populate the Earth for same sex couples. The gay community can do all they want to overturn traditional marriage, and there’s a chance that it may come to pass…but know this: God does not change; He will never change His mind about the sin of homosexuality or that marriage is between a man and woman so that they may ‘be fruitful and multiply to replenish the Earth’.

Man + Woman = Children. Period.

Here is another baby step to losing all of our personal freedoms and right to privacy as a free American citizen.

The truth is that the Gay Agenda is trying to scare straight American Christians in NOT voting against gay marriage, adoption or foster parenting. According to the The Boston Globe in 2006, the campaign has attracted controversy and opponents are reported as saying that “it’s real purpose is to intimidate”. Likewise in 2009 in The Seattle Times, Larry Stickney of the group Protect Marriage Washington reportedly accused the homosexual lobby of adopting “hostile, undemocratic, intimidating tactics“. As well in 2009 Associated Press reported via abc40 news that the Arkansas Family Council may ask lawmakers to block the release of this information on the grounds that it violated the rights to privacy of those who signed the petitions.

KnowThyNeighbor, the gay rights organization that drew national attention for posting online the names of over half a million anti-gay petition signers in Massachusetts and Florida, announced today that it has posted the names of over 83,000 Arkansas citizens who signed an anti-gay adoption and foster care petition in 2008. The names are accessible in a searchable database.

KnowThyNeighbor.org’s efforts in Arkansas led to exposing the signature of Wal-Mart CEO Mike Duke as one of the people who signed the petition to put an anti-gay adoption ban on the ballot in Arkansas.

From the New York Times:  Opponents of releasing the names, led by Protect Marriage Washington, the group behind the referendum, say gay rights groups are threatening free speech by intimidating petition signers. James Bopp Jr., the lead lawyer for the group, filed affidavits from people who said they felt threatened for taking their position on the issue. Larry Stickney, the campaign manager of Protect Marriage Washington, has also complained of feeling threatened, he said.

And heterosexual conservative Christians hate and are judgmental? The nature of HATE is from the LGBT’s thinking that publishing names of those that signed petitions against the Gay Agenda in any facet will make us stop campaigning against what is a crime against nature, against God, against natural family and Godly marriage.

As in Massachusetts and Florida, KnowThyNeighbor.org expects that many petition signers will be confronted about their actions as their names are discovered on the website by family members, friends, coworkers, customers, and acquaintances.

You should feel threatened by those that want to embarrass Christians (or think they are) for their Godly convictions. In fact, I would call this an act of terrorism against a sect of people that believe in the Word of God as it is written, Holy Spirit inspired, to the world. This is clearly a HATE CRIME against those that believed that their signature and decision was a private matter.

Back to the future….

All this being said, the Gay Agenda is exactly that, an AGENDA. This country was founded upon Christian principles which never included same-sex marriage on any level within the Constitution. The progressive liberal agenda has always sought to make Christians an endangered species. What is incredible to me is how seemingly conservative people are caving to this horrific agenda simply because they ‘know’ someone that claims to be afflicted. The affliction goes all the way back to either parents or friends allowing an unnatural behavior to be not just accepted but applauded. We have regressed to the point of being unrecognizable as a nation.

And probably what is the most loathsome issue is allowing same-sex couples or homosexuals to foster, adopt, artificially inseminate, or IVF to have children. These children were never asked if they wanted a mommy AND daddy. A recent story said, “A western Ohio man is jailed on charges that he raped three adopted children and allowed other men to have sex with a boy.”

God help us all.

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO: Have His Starbucks with the Publicans, of course.

Matthew 9:10-12 says, “And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners? But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.”

My husband put this together for his Facebook page today and I am sharing it with you in its entirety:

Yesterday I posed the question, would Jesus go to Starbucks? Before I answer let me be clear on a few things:

  1. I abhor same sex marriage, the LGBT movement is a main cog in destroying America
  2. I hate abortion/murder of babies and I will spend the rest of my life fighting it
  3. I believe we need to be informed of the views businesses have concerning these issues and that we should choose wisely as good stewards who we spend our money with
  4. I believe we should do all we can to spend our money with those who are closely aligned with biblical principles if possible
  5. As Christians we should do all we can to support and promote Gods Plan for the Biblical Natural family
  6. The LGBT is comprised of less than 4% of the American population, it is our fault that we somehow let the 4% control the 96%
  7. We need to Fight as hard for our Biblical and Constitutional Freedoms as those who fight against them.

“All of that said we must understand that the Government, most private business and nearly all publicly held companies support Liberal causes and views, including same sex marriage and the ‘murder of precious God-given life through abortion. Lists of those companies are available from many sources on the web, get them and be informed, spend less money with them if possible; it is nearly impossible to not spend some money with them but we can be more informed and make better choices and those choices will speak loudly to their profit margins and bottom line!

“What’s important for me is that Jesus said we are the ‘Salt of the Earth’ and ‘The Light of the World’; we have to have ‘contact’ (not fellowship) with the world to win those in the world to Jesus Christ.

“My conclusion: I believe that Starbucks is the exactly the kind of place Jesus would go to and share his love and Saving Grace and Mercy. Starbucks is not a ‘night club’ or a ‘dope house’ – it is a coffee shop/restaurant much like some of those you already go to and support, some of which are supporting the same issues. So come out and join me for a cup of coffee and a little fellowship, Maybe I’ll even go to my local Starbucks and start a bible study while I have my coffee.”

Be Blessed, Pastor Joe.
