PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG:
1. INFORM OF GOD’S PRO-LIFE VIEWS.
2. INFORM THE LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF ABORTION
3. INFORM ON THE FREEDOM FROM CONDEMNATION
4. INFORM AND BIBLICALLY MOTIVATE THE CHURCH TO ACTION.
TRUTH:IT WAS SILENCE FROM THE CHURCH THAT LEGALIZED ABORTION.
For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. 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. (Psalms 139:13-16 NKJV)
1. FIRST MYTH: GOD DOES NOT HAVE AN OPINION ON ABORTION:
TRUTH:GOD IS PRO-LIFE.
• God is the CREATOR of the Unborn – Ps. 139:13-16
• God is the SUSTAINER of the Unborn – Lk. 1:44
For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. (Luke 1:44 NKJV)
• God has PLAN for the Unborn – Jer. 1:5; Is. 49:1
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5 NKJV)
TRUTH:Every person is created by God, in the image of God, and this
Creation is called Good by God.
QUESTION:WHERE DOES LIFE BEGIN?
CONCEPTION: WHERE THERE IS A HEART BEAT, THERE IS LIFE.
2. SECOND MYTH: ABORTION WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM:
TRUTH: ABORTION CAUSES MORE PROBLEMS THAN IT SOLVES.
Biblical examples of those trying to fix sin:
JONAH – Thought the solution was RUNNING
ADAM & EVE – Though the solution was HIDING
ANNANIAS & SAPHIRA – Thought the solution was STEALING.
TRUTH:ONLY SOLUTION FOR SIN – THE BLOOD OF JESUS
Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
SPIRITUAL ROOT OF ABORTION:
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Proverbs 12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
• BODILY ABUSE
1 Cor. 6:19-20 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?  For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
• STEALING LIFE
Proverbs 6:16-17 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:  A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
WHO IS MORE INNOCENT THAN A BABY?
• ROBBING OF LIFE & PEACE
Romans 8:5-6 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.  For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
3. THIRD MYTH: ABORTION IS UNFORGIVEABLE
TRUTH:ABORTION IS COVERED BY CHRIST’S BLOOD
1 Tim. 1:15-16 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.  Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
• God always grants forgiveness when REQUESTED – Prov. 28:13
He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy. (Proverbs 28:13 NKJV)
• Forgiveness is the key to JOYFUL RESTORATION – Ps. 51:10-11
Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. (Psalms 51:10, 11 NKJV)
• GOD-GIVEN FORGIVENESS is the only source of abortion restoration
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
HOW WILL WE ANSWER THE ABORTION MYTHS?
1. REMEMBER GOD IS THE CREATOR & SUSTAINER OF LIFE.
2. ABORTION CAUSES MORE PROBLEMS THAN IT SOLVES
3. ABORTION CAN BE FORGIVEN
Testimony:Gianna Jessen Testimony as addressed to the House Judiiary Committee on April 22, 1996 demonstrating LIFE DOES MATTER.
“My name is Gianna Jessen. I am 19 years of age. I am originally from California, but now reside in Tennessee. I am adopted. I have cerebral palsy. My biological mother was 17 when she decided to have an abortion. I am the person she intended to have aborted. The abortion was unsuccessful.
Fortunately for me the abortionist was not in the clinic when I arrived alive, instead of dead, at 6 a.m. on the morning of April 6, 1977. I was early, my death was not expected to be seen until 9 a.m., when he was scheduled to arrive for his office hours.
There are many witnesses to my entry into the world. The nurses along with my biological mother was hysterical. I was immediately transferred to the hospital.
I was born weighing 2 pounds and not expected to live. I remained in the hospital the next three months. A doctor said I had a great will to live and that I fought for my life. I eventually left the hospital and was placed in foster care. I was diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a result of the abortion.
My foster mother was told I would never walk. However, God has seen fit to provide a way for me to walk without any help even though I fall I times, I have learned to fall gracefully. I was legally adopted by my foster mother’s daughter.
I am so happy to be alive. Every day I thank God for life. I do not consider myself a by-product of conception, a clump of tissue, or any other of the titles given in the womb.
Today, a baby is a baby when convenient. It is tissue or otherwise when the time is not right. A baby is a baby when miscarriage takes place at two, three, four months. A baby is called a tissue or clumps of cells when an abortion takes place at two, three, or four months. Why is that? I see no difference. Please open your eyes.
The best thing I can show you to defend my life is my life. I has been a great gift. There is a quote which is etched into the high ceilings of one of our state’s capitol buildings. The quote says, “Whatever is morally wrong, is nt politically correct.” Abortion is morally wrong. Our country is shedding the blood of the innocent. We are killing our future.
A life is valuable. A life is a gift from our Creator. We must receive and cherish the gifts we are given. We must honor the right to life.”
Join us this Sunday at Calvary as we begin the new series entitled, “A NEW YOU” with the message, “WELCOME THE WORD.”
REMEMBER, GOD LOVES YOU AND SO DO WE AT CALVARY!!!!!
