In another example of apostatic theological interpretation, the prominent and progressive group “the Christian Left” has just used the Bible to endorse abortion in all its forms starting with elective first trimester curettage, all the way to the horrific partial birth abortions! Unbelievable! This is the counterfeit church practicing counterfeit christianity!
As if endorsing open homosexuality, gay marriage, ordination of gay ministers, legalization of drugs such as marijuana was not enough for their altar of idolatry, these so-called progressive christians had to endorse the modern-day Holocaust, the murderous spirit of Herod the Great and of Cain, known as abortion.
This is the theological basis of their false argument: life begins with the first breath… therefore an unborn baby is not alive! It is stunning to see how Satan has blinded these people. Here is the Scripture they quote to support the position that life begins only after birth when the baby has the ability to breathe:
Genesis 2:7 “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and it was then that the man became a living being”
Job 33:4 “The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”
Ezekiel 37:5-6 “Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live.”
All these references are taken out their proper context and are twisted to say something that they do not say. According to this position a baby who has a heartbeat, blood flowing through her veins, an intact neurological system that dictates pain, the ability to suck his thumb and comfort himself, etc… is not alive! During fetal surgery for spina bifida for example, the baby interacts with the surgeon squeezing his hand (see photo below), grabbing surgical instruments, and withdrawing from any painful stimulus before being anesthetized. But according to the Christian Left and the Democratic party platform, this person is not alive.
Let’s review the biblical texts which confirm that life begins at conception:
Jer 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart”
Psalm 139:13 “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.”
Psalm 139:16 “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
Of all the horrors in the so-called “Romans 1 platform” of self worship and appeasement, I find abortion to be the most severe sin because it involves an innocent third-party who is murdered. “It’s my body and I do whatever I want with it” has become the motto self idolatry. They wear t-shirts with “I had an abortion and I do not regret it,” and “Someone you love had an abortion.”
Let’s face it, we live in days of apostasy, but the real church of Jesus needs to speak out publicly against groups like the Christian Left who pervert and suppress biblical truth, and exchange it for idolatry.
