How does God look upon children, even those yet in the womb? Well, to begin, Jesus, the Son of God said –
“But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” – Matt. 19:14
“It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.” – Luke 17:2
I guess that is pretty definitive, even the Kingdom of Heaven welcomes them! And even the Psalmist agrees with Jesus for he wrote about the sin of Israel –
“And shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; And the land was polluted with blood.” – Ps. 106:38
Do you think aborting a baby is not offending them? And if Abel’s blood cried out from the ground when he was murdered, do you not think their blood also cries out to God? I tell you they are crying out “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” David wrote about the baby in his mother’s womb –
“My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book, they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.” – Psalm 139:15-16
Even science now agrees with the Bible that life begins at conception so, all anyone supporting abortion can say is it is just their selfish, wicked choice that will support abortion! Or perhaps their greedy desire for money that the abortion industry rakes in, or political gain like Senator Tammy Baldwin, from Wisconsin, gets from a bill she introduced named Women’s Protective Health Act. She said this bill will protect women’s freedom to make their own personal health decisions. What she didn’t say is women do not have the right to take another person’s life! But then she doesn’t believe that baby in the womb is a person. She is just like Hitler who didn’t believe Jews were persons either. She certainly doesn’t believe the Bible so, I want to ask Christians in Wisconsin, are you going to vote for such a person? If you do, you just as guilty as she is before God and will have to answer for that choice one day.
And while I’m at it, we have a Wisconsin Supreme Court election coming up in a few days and there is a clear choice concerning abortion between Judge Janet who supports abortion and lets criminal walk free and Justice Daniel Kelly who is against abortion and a staunch supporter of Constitutional rights. so, I want to ask Christians in Wisconsin, who are you going to vote for.?
Christians don’t have the right to vote in many parts of the world but, in America we do. But if you don’t start voting according to what the Word of God has to say, you may soon lose the right to vote! Freedom is not free! Jesus paid a high price for it and many American ancestors also paid a high price for it. Jesus alone could pay for our sins because He was sinless, but many others have stood up for good against evil and paid a high price for the good. So Christian, don’t let them down, don’t let yourself down by voting with the world. Remember, James wrote – “Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.”
