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

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).

SURROGACY: Pride AND Playing God.

PRIDE AND PLAYING GOD? Now they call surrogates Breeders and wonder if this will hurt women? How can it not? But the most important part of this story of artificially created children is why America aborts 4K children per day but will pay a surrogate 20-40K to have babies for other people – does pride play a part in being a ‘biological’ parent rather than bringing love and security to a child already born? God brought children into the world to be taken care of by people who cherish His Creation whether they are ‘bios’ or not. Where is the love for ALL children?

“You can’t sell your kidney for profit but you can purchase an egg or sell a child,” she says. “There needs to be more checks and balances……Most of the consideration within surrogacy is toward the adults and what they want. Often, it’s not in the best interests of the children.” Read the rest here.

Surrogates are NOT the savior to a childless couple. Creating designer babies is abominable and a desperate attempt to be AS God.

“A lot of lawmakers aren’t looking at these issues. They’re seeing things at the People magazine level. Someone can’t have a baby, here’s this technology and let’s change the law so we can help them,” says Jennifer Lahl, founder of the Center for Bioethics and Culture, which produced the documentary “Breeders.” “But is this really good for women? [Will we] create a new class, or maybe a subclass, of women who will become breeders?” Read the rest here.

People are creating children in dishes for celebrities and gay couples, and some will force a surrogate to abort: The final straw came a few months ago. The rich couple settled [wanted a boy] for female embryos but wanted the surrogate to “reduce” (i.e., terminate) one of the female embryos if both of them took. They didn’t want to raise twin girls.” 

In a story just over a year ago, a surrogate was offered 10K to abort because of an abnormality: “The test confirmed her worst fears: It showed the baby did have a cleft lip and palate, a cyst in the brain, and a complex heart abnormality……..’Given the ultrasound findings, (the parents) feel that the interventions required to manage (the baby’s medical problems) are overwhelming for an infant, and that it is a more humane option to consider pregnancy termination‘.”

HUMANE? The surrogate chose not to abort, suffered a long legal battle but the child is with her new parents who aren’t scared of her health issues.

Surrogacy problems aren’t just here in America, there are countries that have made this a legal kind of ‘trade’, to have children for people abroad. But this has made other legal issues: “…stateless babies, a consequence of the increased popularity of assisted reproductive technology abroad and of the different ways across the world in which citizenship is granted…..a child is automatically granted a green card if the permanent resident mother has the baby in her home country and returns to the U.S. within two years of the birth……Caught between a complicated set of Indian and U.S. immigration laws, she’s not an American citizen like her biological father. But she’s also not Indian, which is where she was born through in vitro fertilization using donor eggs and a gestational carrier, and where now, as a citizen of no country, she’s trapped.”

India has become a hub for international surrogacy, which brings in more than $400 million a year; India has legalized commercial surrogacy.

Let the IVF statistics speak for themselves: ‘Of every 100 eggs fertilised [babies] in an IVF laboratory, only 5 will become live births. In other words, 95% of all IVF embryos are discarded, perish in the Petri dish or die in the womb.’ Read the rest here and here.

IVF babies either die during the process or are ‘reduced’…aborted. In recent years, IVF has nearly doubled because gay couples want children but cannot reproduce themselves. God made a way for a man and woman to have a family, but ‘man’ made a way through technology and sin to create what they cannot have NATURALLY.

Recently, a book from a well known Pastor in Texas wrote about a childless couple that had a child through IVF. Truly, IVF or artificial insemination is NOT of God and should NEVER be applauded by any Christian, much less a Pastor. Because of this Pastor’s stamp of approval of IVF/artificial insemination, he has shown that God is not GOD but the will of man is. God created man, we did  not create or polish up God.

We create a culture of death for poor women but pay out 20+K for ‘gestational carriers’ while 4K babies die every day in abortion facilities. It is BEYOND outrageous; it’s deplorable and SIN.

Adoption will be what saves our children from destruction, adoption saves the lives of who was once unwanted or orphaned. Children don’t have an expiration date – they are in need every minute of every day. For childless married couples, adoption is the Godly and loving option to give life to someone that wants to love you forever.

Abortion, Old School Excuse.

Women and men that MAY consider abortion have thought and re-thought of what justifies killing their unborn child or children if they find themselves pregnant….well, not just pregnant but not they way they WANT to be pregnant. This is where the abortion ‘excuse’ becomes an Olympic event.

So, of course one bad decision deserves another, right?

This is what abortion really is, dead aborted babies in red tubs.

I’ll explain. When I peruse ‘pro-choice’ and ‘pro-abort’ blogs and articles, the authors give EVERY reason in the world to terminate, or MURDER, a child in the womb just in case they do get pregnant…some day. They cite reasoning that seems viable to the naked eye but the truth is that they seek a way out to make their own lives more viable than an unseemly blob of baby tissue that already has a heartbeat and his/her own separate DNA.

Then there are the pro-choice ‘abortion excuse’ blogs and articles that expound in GREAT DETAIL their justification for their abortion. All I can say about those is WOW. Talk about being the QUEEN OF THE EXCUSE. They give a laundry list of excuses of killing their own baby. But I suppose that an aspiring bartending career was more important than the love of your own child.

But worse of all are the prolife blogs and articles that tells a grand story of being post-abortive but skips the testimony. Without the testimony, sin was never addressed. If you don’t address sin, then nothing changes. You can’t do the same thing over and over expecting GREAT results.

“Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 5:20-21)

SIN. Yes, sin. That is why there is abortion and abortion law. I will be the very first to tell you that even though my mother forced me to abort as a minor, the reason I was pregnant in the first place is because I HAD SEX WHEN I SHOULD NOT HAVE. Marriage the ONLY reason why ANYONE should be having sex.

And don’t tell  me I’m a Victorian (yes, there was abortion then) or ‘Little House on the Prairie’. What do you expect when you forsake your morality and dignity as women? And then kill the unsuspecting unborn child? How does that make you a better woman? EVER?

Stop believing the abortion lie, and stop excusing yourself from the consequences: ABORTION KILLS CHILDREN.

THE FAILURE OF ABORTION – Learn to Heal, Restore and Forgive.

INTRODUCTION: ‘The Failure of Abortion’ is a five part series examining why we ended up on the abortionist’s table. Women are life-givers; women are entrusted by God to give life through birth, not take it. God gives us every tool we will ever need to be a parent. He has not and will not forsake anyone because they chose LIFE. But abortion happens every day, at least 4000 times per day just in the United States alone.

There is only one reason why we abort: FAILURE. Yes, failure – because there is not one good reason or purpose for aborting an unborn child; thus the answer to the abortion question is always FAILURE. Do NOT let the 1% (rape/incest/abnormalities) sway you to choose abortion and NEVER let the 1% take away your restoration or keep you from being 100% PROLIFE; think of the Parable of the Lost Sheep:

“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’ I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.” Luke 15:4-7

This series is for Post-Abortive and Pre-Abortive women and men. It is always the goal of KeepLifeLegal to steer the pre-abortive to parenthood instead of abortion death; however at least 1/3 of women and girls in the United States is post-abortive and need to heal. In order to heal we need to forgive and we need to be valuable once again – we also need to accept the fact that we failed along the way to get us to where we are today. Our failure can be our gain if we face it, accept it and forgive.

We will look at 5 types of failure that causes women and girls to abort:

  1. Failure in Right Relationships
  2. Failure in Right Decisions
  3. Failure in the System/Government
  4. Failure in the Church
  5. Failure in Forgiveness

Failure is a tough word to swallow, it’s like this horrible demon that follows us and torments us wherever we go as a continual reminder of our indiscretions and carelessness of our lives. We did not end up on the abortionist’s table with the beaming smile of a martyr; we are not there because it is for the ‘best’ – we are there because we are broken and FAILED miserably.

Ultimately, we will understand that through failure we can forgive and be forgiven for our abortion failure. Is our affliction too hard to overcome? Nothing is too hard for God and He means for you to be healed, restored and FORGIVEN.

NEVER forget that YOU are also made in His image and created for such a time as this:

“For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14

Next – Part 1, ‘Failure in Right Relationships’

There is freedom.

I cannot give an entire account of all the bits and pieces of guilt I have had over the years. Being Post Abortive, I still battle a devil that seeks me because of my past sin. I had a lot of guilt but my God is bigger than that; He’s bigger than the devil, He’s bigger than I’ll ever be. God gave me freedom when nothing else could or ever can. Just like most Post Abortive women, I sought freedom in other things like alcohol. That’s not freedom, that’s another nail in a coffin that the devil had for me.

‘Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in the LORD his God, Who made heaven and earth, The sea, and all that is in them; Who keeps truth forever, Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry. The LORD gives freedom to the prisoners’ – Psalm 146:5-7.

I would never know freedom if I didn’t know Jesus as my Savior. He died for all of my sins, not just some of them or just the pretty ones…ALL OF THEM.

Your freedom from years of horrific guilt is only a moment away – look ahead to the Cross.
