A sad day for Ireland! They think they are choosing freedom but, they are choosing death, and death of their most precious possession – their babies!
But, there is something else involved here that I don’t hear talked about much – it is your world view about life. Who is the author of life? Is it humans or is it God? If the answer is humans, then who is to decide who should live and who should not? Why is your life any more important than any other? If you can take a life (your baby’s for example) for your convenience, then why should someone else not be able to take your life for their convenience? If this becomes your world view then you will be left with situations like Naboth of the Old Testament story faced (1 Kings 21:1-16), Jezebel took his life because she wanted his vineyard and he wouldn’t sell. This is exactly how despots like Hitler, Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, or Mussolini thought. It is the world view of humanism, which gives rise to socialism and communism.
But, if your world view is that God is the author of life then actions like Jezebel and Ahab took will have a heavy judgment to face. God sent Elijah to pronounce the judgment –
“Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, which is in Samaria: behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth, whither he is gone down to possess it. And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Hast thou killed, and also taken possession? And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick thy blood, even thine. … And of Jezebel also spake the LORD, saying, The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.” – 1 Kings 21:18,19, 23
People who adopt a humanist world view become little more than animals and are thus subject to a “dog eat dog” scenario. Those who have been brainwashed by public education today will say, “but, we are all just animals!” But God created man in His own image and to be above the animals and to have rule over them.
“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.” – Gen. 1:26
Under a world view that accepts God as the Creator of life, the life of the righteous (those who follow God) is precious and protected.
“Thus saith the LORD; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place.” – Jer. 22:3
In the days of Noah, men forgot this truth and accepted a humanistic world view, which is demonic. That is why ‘every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually‘ and God had to judge them. Those who embrace the practice of abortion will receiver the same judgment, maybe not a flood but the judgment of everlasting death.
Now, I know those who have suffered an abortion or have loved ones that have will be uncomfortable with this message but, it is the truth few want to proclaim these days. Remember, the God of the Old Testament is also the God of the New Testament and He proclaims “I am God, and I change not!” There is only one way to escape this judgment and that is to repent and accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. This is the only way of escape from God’s judgment on abortion given to man.
I pray those in Ireland will find this grace before it is too late for them as a nation. Being Catholic will not save them. Only through repentance and turning to Jesus can be Salvation for them – and for any others who have embraced this sin.
