If we are for Christ and really on His side, then we also have both our feet in His kingdom. We are not only believers but followers of Jesus, who is Lord of our lives. Because He has rescued us from the bondage of this world, we love Him more than anything the world offers. Therefore, our desires are for God and knowing Him greater each day. So we read the Bible daily, in order to have His words continually in our hearts and our minds. We also pray often, so that our thoughts are always for Him. Doing this, we are a lot less likely to sin, for Jesus is in our lives. Even when Satan comes to tempt us we are not easily given over to the lusts of your flesh as we once were, for we are already fulfilled because of the love of Christ in our lives. This allows us to think clearly and not be easily given over to how the world thinks about different important issues. So when the Bible says that children are precious in God’s sight, even babies that He is creating in the womb, our stance on abortion will be against it all costs. God may even give us over to stand in front of an abortion clinic, in order to warn the women going there of how evil abortion is in the sight of God. And along with this issue, our thoughts on homosexuality is different now, since God is clear that this vial act is an abomination in His sight. Therefore, you may be moved to go to gay pride parades and festivals, in order to witness the truths of God to them, pass out tracts, and pray with them. These two topics are controversial with the world, but with Christians, we already know where God stands. We don’t let the government stop us from believing what the Bible says is truth.
So let’s now read a few verses that affirm our stance on abortion and homosexuality. First off being abortion, where God said, 1“be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth” (Genesis 1:28) So think about this for a minute, along with the other verses I will mention. How can God’s will happen if babies are being murdered? God also said, 2“thou shalt not kill.” (Exodus 20:13) So how can people obey this, while letting their unborn and innocent babies be murdered? Jesus also said, 4“whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Matthew 18:6) This could not be more clear that children are precious in the sight of God, so why would anyone want to kill them? Now, for homosexuality, God said, 3“if a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” (Leviticus 20:13) Paul also said, 5“know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9,10) Effeminate people in this context are homosexuals, of which will not have any part of heaven, but hell, lest they repent. The Bible is clear on the topics of abortion and homosexually. Therefore, be in line with God and let your heart be against such things.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I love You and give You the highest praise. Thank You for saving a wretch like me and leading me out of the darkness of this world. Because You are now with me, there is light and light abundant. I can never get tired of having You in my life and being led away from sin. Truly, You have built me up with Your armor, that I may no longer fall willfully into sin. Thank You Jesus. Where I once was with the world in the way I thought about things, now I know how wrong I was, for You have given me understanding. I now know that babies are precious in Your sight. That abortion is evil and that You hate this vial act, as I do now also. It pains me to the very core of my being to know that innocent lives are being killed each day. Lord, let these killings stop in Your mighty Name. Convict these women who are doing such evil and vial acts, that they may repent and come out of the darkness and into Your light. May they listen to Your witnesses and wake up to follow You. I also pray for those people in the homosexual community. Truly, as people that abort their unborn children, these people are also filled with evil spirits. So it is my prayer that everything evil inside of them will be cast out, that Your light might enter them also. Lives can change, but they must first come unto You, Jesus, and then You can do the rest. It is my prayer that every worker of iniquity will get right with You before it is too late. And help Christians all over the world to come together in the unity of the faith. That we might be a light unto the world, starting today. That we will stand against abortion and homosexuality, while leading these people that are for it, to know what Your Word has said. Then, will You be able to open their eyes, that they may see. Thank You Lord. I believe in You. I trust in You with my whole heart. I love You. Amen.

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

3Leviticus 20:1-14 (KJV)
1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
3 And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.
4 And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:
5 Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.
7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.
8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you.
9 For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.
10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.
11 And the man that lieth with his father’s wife hath uncovered his father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
12 And if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be upon them.
13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
14 And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you.
4Matthew 18:1-10 (KJV)
1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!
8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
51 Corinthians 6:9-20 (KJV)
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.
15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.
16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
