A Biblical Mandate Concerning Abortion

Introduction

January 22, — Roe Vs. Wade

Number of People that have lost their lives due to Abortion in the US since 1973?

Is it possible for one to publicly support abortion but privately oppose it?

Movie: The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (I believe it is on Netflix)

John Piper calls pastors that do not preach against abortion

Piper: The law of our land is not only immoral but also

The Guttmacher Institute: percent of women getting abortions identify as Catholic or

Francis Schaeffer: In the flesh, we can stress purity without love or love without purity but not both at the same time. To do that we must look moment by moment to the and the Holy Spirit. Without that, a stress on purity is legalism, and stress on love is compromise. 

The question for the Christian shouldn’t be: Is abortion right or wrong? The right question is: Does God

RELIGION

James 1:27: Religion that is our and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affection, and to keep one’s self unstained from the world.

Orphans and widows: of those in severe distress. 

Jeremiah 22:3: Thus says the LORD:  Do justice and righteousness, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor him who has been robbed. And do no wrong or violence to the resident alien, the fatherless and the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place.

The survival of orphans and widows often of God’s people.

RESCUE

Proverbs 24:11-12: Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.

FEARING GOD

Exodus 1:15ff: Then the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other Puah, when you serve as midwife to the Hebrew women and see them on the birthstone, and if it is a son, you shall kill him, but if it is a daughter, she shall live.  But the midwives feared God and did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but let the male children live.

The Hebrew women understood that God created life therefore we do not

NEIGHBOR

Psalm 82:3-4: Vindicate the weak and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and destitute. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

Luke 10

SACRIFICE

Leviticus 20:1-5: The Lord spoke to Moses saying, Say to the people of Israel, ‘Anyone of the people of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech shall surely be put to death…I myself will set my face against that man and will cut him off from among his people because he has given one of his children to Molech, to make my sanitary unclean and profane my holy name.  And if the people of the land do at all close their eyes t to that man when he gives one if his children to Molech, and do not put him to death, then I will set my face abasing that man and against his clan and will cut them off from among their people, him and all who follow him from whoring after Molech.

Those that to the killing of the innocent are in the same category as those who “whore” after Molech. 

BALANCE 

It is easy for Christians to become indignant over the (or generally the sin of others) but it is difficult to become angry and upset over our

Christian shouldn’t be defined by Christian

There is a filled with
  Drawn from Immanuel’s ;
And sinners, plunged beneath that ,
  Lose their guilty stains:
  Lose all their guilty stains,
  Lose all their guilty stains;
And sinners, plunged beneath that flood,
  Lose all their guilty stains.” ~ William Cowper
