The Bible teaches that life begins at conception. Therefore, if you are a believer in God and agree with what He says, then you are also pro-life and against abortion. I do not know of any true Christians who have ever said that they are for abortion. The only times I’ve heard people say they that are the times that people only agree with a portion of the Bible and not all of it. These are those of which are not saved, for they not only disagree with what God says but also exclude certain chapters and verses in His Word. Only if they repent and allow Jesus to conform their thoughts, desires, and actions according to His will can they be forgiven and saved. These are just some of those verses, of which I am speaking of above. David said, “for thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.” (Psalm 139:13-16) Even in our mother’s womb, God was forming and shaping us. Praise God for His more wonderful and beautiful creation.
The best evidence of life starting in the moment of conception does come through reading what the Bible teaches on this topic. Some such verses are written by Luke and reads, “and Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.” (Luke 1:39-44) This is such a beautiful story of John the baptist jumping for joy when he noticed that Jesus was coming by way of Mary. And all this happened while John was still in Elizabeth’s womb. He had not been born yet. Just think about these verses and the verse above for a minute. We are alive and active before we are delivered in birth. So take a stance against abortion today.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people will begin to look to You in faith. I mean real faith. The type of faith that makes people trust in Your Words in the Bible and not just say they believe. And I am not just talking about portions of the Bible that their church teaches or they read, but all of what has been taught in the Bible. It is when we discard Your teachings is when false doctrines and beliefs are formed. One of these false beliefs is that women have the right to do whatever they want when it comes to abortion. But this kind of belief is only formed when a person becomes resistant to what You have said in the Bible, which is very sad. I wish I could show each one of these lost people the verses where it says You formed us in our mother’s womb and that John leaped for joy in Elizabeth’s womb. I just know that people who already have formed an idea that abortion is ok, it is very difficult to say anything that will change their minds. Therefore, I plead for Your assistance in these matters. Convict people of their sins, that they may come around to listening and doing Your will on earth as it is in heaven. This is my will and other Christians also. I love You, Lord. I trust in You above all things. May my beliefs always be based on Your teachings and not my own self-made beliefs. Amen.
