Arbiters Of Right And Wrong
There is only one who knows what is right and what is wrong 100 percent of the time and that is God. We men are only right when we agree with Him and what He says in His Word.
Exodus 20:13: Thou shalt not kill.
The Bible makes no exception to that commandment for the unborn. The unborn are demonstrably alive and growing. Thou shalt not kill applies to them. Whether we call them babies or fetuses God creates them and puts life in them. They are His and He is obviously pro-life. When the people of Israel sacrificed (killed) their sons and daughters, God permitted people that hated them to rule over them, oppress them and keep them in subjection. I believe it is no coincidence that it is happening again in America. Many have destroyed their sons and daughters by abortion and Americans are, to a great extent, being ruled over, oppressed and brought into subjection by those that hate them. The Bible says that lying tongues hate those that are afflicted by their lies.
Psalms 106:36-42: And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them. 37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, 38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood. 39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions. 40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance. 41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them. 42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.
Proverbs 26:28a: A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; . . .
There are two groups of people responsible for the anti-God practice of abortion, those who actually practice it and those who encourage it by making it legal. They do not know right from wrong. They may think they are the arbiters of right and wrong today, but they will not be in eternity, and unless they repent, they will be ruled by leaders that hate them rather than the God who loves them. Believers who oppose abortion will not be judged for it. If they oppose it to the death, they will go straight into the presence of God. That is a blessing, not judgment.
We live in a society where a drunk can cause an accident in which a baby in its mother*s womb is killed and the drunk can be charged with manslaughter. But an abortionist can deliberately destroy a baby in its mother*s womb and go Scott-free. Unless abortionists change their ways they will not go Scott-free when they stand before the Lord. We need to pray earnestly for our nation.
