As a Christian, or…at least as someone who follows Jesus Christ, reads the Bible, and tries very hard to Love my fellow Humans, (and damn, it’s hard to love all of my neighbors…) I have some rather unusual views about Death. Specifically, about the death of young children. Of course it is a tragedy when a child dies; especially when one is abused and murdered. But the Bible has good things to say, when a child happens to die. It tells us that they are innocent, and that they are beloved by God. He will take them home to Himself, even if their parents are not good. Even if they’ve been naughty, young children are not held accountable for sin! Not like we adults are. So…naturally it causes me some distress to talk to other Christians about a particular subject:
Yes, that’s the act of a pregnant woman going to a doctor–or other person–and having her unwanted child…KILLED. You see, most people I know, who are strongly religious, are rather violently opposed to Abortion. And for that matter, I Personally HATE Abortion, and those who perform it or seek it! But I have another point of view. The same merciful God Who cares for murdered children cares for the unborn in the same manner! What do I care if some woman who never knew God sends her unwanted baby back to Him?
Actually, I’m going to take this subject even farther. You see, at one point in history, the Jews of ancient Israel were faced with an even worse situation. Yes, WORSE than Abortion. In a neighboring kingdom, the prophets of Ba’al, an ancient Demon, were routinely sacrificing children to their god…by throwing them alive into burning pits! The Jews wanted to do something about it, but God told them otherwise. In fact, He told them to stay away from the worshipers of Ba’al altogether. And once again, He assured them that each and every child has His blessing.
As adults, we have no such assurances. Today, we can turn on the news to see dozens of reports of murders, rapes, acts of arson, armed robberies, and even wholesale ritual torture, all committed by countless masses of evil people of the sort that once burned babies to honor a Demon god. Oh, and did I mention that some of those want an abortion? Really, in the eyes of God, there’s not much difference between aborting an unwanted pregnancy, and throwing a living, breathing child into a bonfire to burn to death. Including the nature of the people who commit these acts: unsaved souls who’ve never experienced the love of Jesus. Nobody who truly loves Jesus Christ would think of doing such a thing. Either thing.
But those we force to be born to such women can…and often do! The fact is, the KIND of people who would seek an abortion have never received the Holy Spirit in the first place–even those who profess to be Christian themselves–because the soul of a person with the Spirit in their hearts would never WANT to have an abortion! And that means, that (should we manage to prevent an abortion from happening) the child born to such a woman is being raised by a parent without God, very often in a broken home, and (in many cases) learning to be the same kind of people who would rob, rape, murder, or have Abortions themselves! And those kind of people have no place in the Heaven of a God of Love. They’re going to Hell. All of them. And with very few exceptions! Jesus Christ HIMSELF warned us that the way to salvation is narrow, and few find it. Even for Christians, there is no guarantee our children will follow us by becoming disciples of Christ. How much less likely is it that the product of an unwanted pregnancy will find God? I think you only have to watch the evening news to see the answer to that question.
This actually means that aborted fetuses are better off, most of the time. Which begs the question, “Why are we Christians really trying to keep the UNSAVED from killing their babies?” Let them go! Why force these women to bring more rapists, murderers, drug addicts, gang members, and other enemies of our God into this world? Hell, let the pagans burn their babies! The babies will go to Heaven! The Pagans…are already DAMNED!
Stuff that into your Thinking Pipe and smoke it!
