No matter who you are, you have a view on abortion. Your view on abortion may be shaped by some things that have happened in your life. More than likely, your political views are tied to your view on this topic as well. My purpose in writing this blog is to expose our hearts to the value of human life. See, God created everyone in his image regardless if they are in the womb or are ninety years old. Society wants to minimize the value of human life by telling you that a fetus is not a human yet.
I could go on a rant with the statistics about how many babies are aborted each year. I could make the case of fetal development week by week. What ultimately matters is that God creates life. God gets to determine who lives and who dies. Just imagine a famous artist for a second. This artist created a beautiful work of art and put it on display for everyone to see. Someone walking by the piece of art decided that they wanted to destroy it. This person tore the artwork apart right in front of the creator. The once beautiful masterpiece is now destroyed.
Scenario number two involves the same artist. Let's say this artist finished his creation and decided it did not measure up to its creation, so he destroyed it. Most of you would have a problem with a complete stranger tearing apart the creation of the artist. Many of you wouldn't object to the creator destroying his creation though. Just like the artist, God created us. He is the only one justified in destroying his creation because it does not measure up. We do not get to play God and destroy what the creator has made.
Your view on abortion may be counter to what God says.
As a believer in Christ, you should know that God created everyone equally. God has his hand in creation every step of the way. From the second of conception to death, God controls your life. The biggest flaw in a pro-abortion argument is a mothers choice. There is not one verse in the Bible that justifies a mother terminating a child in her womb. Genesis shows that God is responsible for all creation. God creates children that are conceived by rape, incest as well as pregnancies that jeopardize the life of the mother. In no circumstance does God say some lives are valued more than others.
Supporting abortion stands counter to God's creation of human life. Making excuses to justify abortion shows a lack of faith in God's power. Choosing death over life plays right into Satan's hand of deceit. One thing is for sure that you can tell a lot about a person by their view on abortion. You can see the lack of fruits of the spirit and the weakness in their walk with Christ.
Psalm 139:13-16 NASB 13 For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb.14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; 16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.
