Do USA Taxpayers Pay for Abortions?

Theology and Politics from a Conservative, Biblical Perspective

But truthfully you know nothing about me other than a very short interaction –don’t judge ;)

There were other responses as well. Notice how she used the term “judge” in a negative way to try to imply that I was judging women who had abortions? This was certainly not the case at all and I pointed this out to her, stating that I was “Not judging you at all. Lord will judge all of us. We were discussing. Sorry if you feel guilty…”

As part of her response, she also referred to an article on “The Christian Left” blog site in which the question of whether or not unborn children are “viable.” In other words, if a woman has an abortion of the fetus she carries, is she really killing another human being? The article in question – “The Bible Tells Us When A Fetus Becomes A Living Being” – attempts to prove that the Bible teaches that only after the child is born and is viable is it actually considered a human being by God Himself.

Unfortunately, as readers will learn if they take time to read through the article, it is filled with out-of-context Scripture and misinterpretation of sections of Scripture itself. One case is found in Ezekiel 37 (Valley of the Dry Bones), where the author attempts to show that it is only after bones and flesh and sinews are fully developed and when God gives that individual the breath of life, does the person become an actual person. Unfortunately for the author of the article, the truth of Ezekiel 37 is found in the fact that it is an allegorical passage that refers directly to the nation of Israel and their resurrection in the latter days as we learn in Ezekiel 37:11a.

Son of man, these bones are all the house of Israel.

Jeremiah speaks to the fact that God “knew” us while he was still in the womb. God carefully formed each of us before we were born.

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations. – Jeremiah 1:5

There are many verses that speak of how God knew us prior to our birth. Here are just some of them at this link. It is a sad shame that taxes paid by Christians are used for immoral purposes. Certainly, God will not hold us responsible if we are opposed to it and we have little control over how the government uses our tax dollars. As long as evil exists, people will find ways to use tax dollars for malevolent purposes.

In spite of what some people like to believe, the reality is that abortion is murder. Life cannot be measured by viability. Even the article I referred to states “There is nothing in the bible to indicate that a fetus is considered to be anything other than living tissue and, according to scripture, it does not become a living being until after it has taken a breath.” This is patently false, but please notice that even the author of the article refers to the fetus as “living tissue,” so it is alive, isn’t it. The assertion that the Bible does not teach that a fetus does not become a living thing until after it takes its breath is also completely incorrect.

The same article also incorrectly states that the commandment “Thou Shalt Not Kill” was not a command from God, but one stated by Moses. The author references Exodus 34 in an attempt to prove this, but in that chapter, the commandments are not necessarily reiterated. However, in Exodus 20 (avoided by the author of the article), the commandments are clearly delineated including “thou shalt not kill” (Exodus 20:13). In Exodus 34, God states, “and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables,” implying that whatever was written on the first set of tablets (that Moses broke out of anger over the Israelites’ idolatry), was also written on the replacement tablets (Exodus 34:1).

In Exodus 20:1, we read these words from God: “And God spake all these words…” It was God, not Moses who stated the words that Moses wrote down. In fact, God is still speaking in Exodus 21 as well. He had a lot to say and Moses wrote down everything (while God wrote His commands directly on the stone tablets).

It is disingenuous for people who call themselves Christians today to not know God’s Word, to have no desire to obey Him, to live in a way that really winds up offering friendship with the world and its system, a system which is diametrically opposed to God and His truth. Many do so out of ignorance, while some do so out of a deliberate desire to live in step with the world. It is destined to get even worse as the time approaches the coming of the Tribulation followed seven years later by the physical return of our Lord and Savior to this earth as Ruler, King, and Sovereign.

I hope with me, you look forward to that.
