There are hundreds of scriptures explaining or implicitly addressing the topic of abortion. The issue of the sanctity of human life is the biggest issue.
We must embrace the culture of life. If you do not get the issue right, then you will have an anti-life mindset. Do you really believe that taking the life of an innocent, unborn child is about privacy and the right to choose? To be bold, the right to choose to MURDER?
The issue is at the core of all human dignity. This is so much bigger than a political issue – it is a moral issue – a biblical issue. There is value in every human life, regardless of a person’s age, stature, functional capability, last name, level of education or occupation. Surely, everyone would agree with that statement.
Let me remind you of words penned in 1776…”We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by the creator with certain unalienable rights, that among them are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Doesn’t that sound like our forefathers believed in a radical notion that each human has intrinsic worth and value? Are those words outdated? Is this philosophy and the Bible not relevant anymore?
Remember this – if you have indifference toward any life then you can become indifferent toward every life, including yours and mine.
This is the big issue…this issue is God’s heart. Do you have God’s heart in this issue?
