There have been more than 40 million abortions in the twenty-six years since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized unrestricted abortion on January 22, 1973.
Number of abortions per day in The United States: Approximately 3,700
Like a mirror, the Word of God exposes the folly of following man’s way and the wisdom of following God’s way. One way leads to destruction, and the other leads to life.
Abortion is not the problem - it is just a symptom. The ultimate problem is that our culture as a whole has exalted man’s beliefs above the authority of God’s Word. The prevailing view is that man ‘evolved’ over millions of years. This has destroyed the historical basis for the dignity of human life - based in the book of Genesis, which says that man was made in the image of God.
If there is no Creator, there is no purpose in life. There is thus no one watching over us to whom we must someday have to account for our actions. So, we come to the root of society’s problems. When God the Creator is removed from the picture, there are no absolutes; there is a loss of respect for law and absolute principles, and man is set adrift in a purposeless universe, guided only by his fickle passions and the situation of the moment.
Ultimately the only way to turn the tide against abortion and rampant immorality is to restore faith in God’s Word as the absolute authority in not just all matters of faith and practice, but everything else the Bible touches upon such as history and science.
Teetering toward Pro-choice?
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. ~ John 8:44
Satan tells us lies. He is so eloquent, so persuasive in his lies, and we are so gullible, that we fall for his schemes (2 Corinthians 2:11). He masquerades as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14), calling right wrong, making us think - as many prochoicers do - that they are taking the moral high ground even as the defend something unspeakably immoral.
If some of the prochoice arguments momentarily cloud and eclipse what you know to be right, realize it is simply because the devil is behind the persuasive rhetoric of the prochoice movement. He is fluent in the language of lies and uses the prevailing assumptions of culture, education, and media to draw us away from God's thoughts about children and abortion and toward his.
The press dutifully reports the number of soldiers killed in a war zone on a daily and monthly basis, but they do not report the number of unborn babies killed in the U.S. during that same time period.
- Soldiers killed in Iraq last month - 103 +/-.
- Unborn babies killed in U.S. last month - approximately 103,600.
Perhaps the press should read Matthew 7:5
