Israel's Great Sin of Abortion #2

The Selfishness and lack of Love today!

                 ISRAEL'S GREAT SIN - ABORTION ON DEMAND!!

From an old study paper by the Biblical Church of God, in the
early 1980s.

Continued from previous page:


HYSTEROTOMY OR CAESARIAN SECTION: 

This method is used mainly in the last three months of pregnancy.
The womb is entered by surgery through the wall of the abdomen,
the tiny baby is removed and allowed to die by neglect or
sometimes killed by a direct act.

PROSTAGLANDIN CHEMICAL ABORTION: 

This newest form of abortion uses chemicals to initiate the
abortion process. These chemicals cause the uterus to contract in
tensely, pushing out the developing baby. The contractions are so
abnormally severe, that babies have even been known to be
decapitated by them. Many, however, have also been born alive.
The side effects to the mother are many - a number have even died
from cardiac arrest when the compounds were injected (Children,
The Things We Throw Away, p.2).


EVERY CHILD A WANTED CHILD

     "In our age of 'doing our own thing,' not only do we want
what we want when we want it, but we demand that our 'wanting' be
accepted legally as the justification for previously unacceptable
behavior. In the process we have elevated selfishness to the
status of virtue and have developed a social policy which
operates on the basis of the seven deadly sins ... pride,
covetousness, anger, envy, gluttony, laziness, and lust.
Self-gratification and self-indulgence were once viewed as
destructive to humans, both personally and corporately. However,
they are embodied in the sentimentalsounding phrase, EVERY CHILD
A WANTED CHILD, a phrase which summons up an image that is loving
and compassionate. Yet, it is neither, for it roots the value of
one human being in the desires of another. Children in the womb
are thus totally dependent upon the personal 'wants' of the
individuals who have a vested interest in them. The unborn child
must compete with: the mother's schedule, job, happiness,
convenience, and budget and somehow prove that he or she deserves
to win over them. The 'every child a wanted child' concept
reduces a child to an object. We usually want 'things' - a
vacation, a raise, a new car or dress. Thus, to 'want' or 'not to
want' children is to dehumanize them. In a consumer-oriented
society, we have created an economic system with no room for
children. We do not need them for production on the family farm
or for oldage insurance. Rather, they have become a costly luxury
which, for some men and women, must provide at least as much
satisfaction and gratification as the other objects of the 'good'
life - the yacht, the console stereo, the second car, the color
TV. The result is that preborn children are caught in the crunch
of competing with objects which mark the classic American
syndrome" (Who Broke The Baby, p.2728).


A SICK SOCIETY

     The elimination of unborn human beings simply because they
are not wanted, tells us nothing about the millions who have been
destroyed legally, but it tells us what we have allowed our
society to become.

"The unwanted child is the victim not of his own shortcomings,
but of those in a society attempting to solve its social,
economic and personal problems by the sacrificial offering of its
children" (Ibid., p.29-30).

"'When a child is unwanted,' testified an official representing a
mainstream Protestant denomination in 1978, 'the most loving
thing you can do is to abort him.' How sad it is that compassion,
which once meant 'a sympathetic consciousness of another's
distress with a desire to alleviate, has degenerated into a false
sentimentality which condones the destruction of human beings as
an expression of love. Abortion has become the 'good news' for
the twentieth century, a form of religious response in which
killing is condoned if we do it for his or her 'own good.' If the
unborn is unwanted, some believe, then prenatal death must surely
be preferable to postnatal life!" (Ibid., p.30-31).


CALLING EVIL GOOD

     The crux of the abortion issue is this: The sins of
immorality are attempted to be solved by the sin of murder. Two
wrongs never make a right.

     The Bible describes this hideous philosophy which is palmed
off as 'Christianity': "Woe unto them that call evil good, and
good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter ... they have
cast away the law of the Lord of Hosts, and despised the word of
the Holy One of Israel" (Isaiah 5:20,24).

     To use 'every child a wanted child,' as an excuse to
terminate the life of the unborn is the same as condoning the
murder of jews by the Nazi Third Reich during World War II under
the premise 'every Jew a wanted Jew.' The philosophy of someone
being wanted before they have a right to life is ridiculous and
evil.
     Who gave the right to one human to say to another human, "I
will allow you to live," or, "I deny you the right to live?" If
the Creator God did not give this power or authority to any
human, then who did give it? The answer is - no one did! Our
society has taken to itself the prerogative of God to give and
take life (Deuteronomy 32:39).


CHAPTER 5 

FREEDOM TO CHOOSE

     Under social, political and secular idealism to protect the
individual's "right to choose," the right of the unborn to life
and equal protection under the law has been abandoned. Federal
Judge John Francis Dooling, Jr., in January 1980 in the case of
McRae v. Secretary of DHEW, ruled the following:

"A woman's conscientious decision, in consultation with her
physician, to terminate her pregnancy because that is medically
necessary to her health, is an exercise of the most fundamental
of her rights, nearly allied to her right to be, surely part of
the liberty protected by the Fifth Amendment, doubly protected
when the liberty is exercised in conformity with religious belief
and teaching protected by the First Amendment. To deny medical
assistance for the lawful and medically necessary procedure of
abortion is to violate the pregnant woman's First and Fifth
Amendment rights. This irreconcilable conflict of deeply and
widely held views on this issue of individual conscience excludes
any legislative intervention except that which protects each
individual's freedom of conscientious decision and conscientious
nonparticipation."

     This "right to choose" has been confused with the "freedom
to choose," and this has opened the floodgate to abortion on
demand. "When we tolerate abortion on demand on the grounds of
'freedom to choose,' we, in effect, favor the right of each
individual to impose his or her morality on the most defenseless
in the human family. Abortion, then for all practical purposes,
becomes another spectator event for which we do not take personal
responsibility" (Who Broke the Baby, p.46).


THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE

     There is a vast difference between the "freedom to choose"
and the "right to choose."

     People are free to choose to steal, but it is not their
right. They are free to commit adultery, but it is not their
right. People are free to murder, but it is not their right.

"There is a further consideration, one which concerns the
difference between the freedom to choose and the right to choose.
It is the age-old Genesis dilemma of Adam and Eve. Surely they
had the 'freedom to choose' to eat of the forbidden tree. But in
exercising their freedom to do so, they chose to ignore the
reality that they did not have the 'right to choose' to eat of
it, for it had been forbidden by God (Genesis 2:16-17). "Freedom
is not the liberty to do what we want to do, but to do what we
must - God determines, directs and demands" (Ibid., p.48).

     God is the one who determines right and wrong, good and
evil, righteousness and sin. He demands and we choose; and He has
given the freedom to choose, but commands us to make the proper
choices: "I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,
that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing;
therefore, CHOOSE LIFE that both you and your seed may live"
(Deuteronomy 30:19).

     This is the fundamental issue before the courts, not
socialpolitical justice.
     If there were proper separation of "church" and "state," the
courts should have ruled that abortion is a religious-moral
issue, not within the realm of their jurisdiction, rather than
making it a social-political issue.
     Another reason it became a social-political issue was
because the churches have abandoned their responsibility to
preach the truth of the Bible. In fact, most churches, which say
they represent God and teach the Bible, have themselves rejected
the teachings of God and the Bible. As a result, an appalling
number of churches and denominations actually teach and advocate
abortion, and have been leading in the push for legalized
abortion on demand.
     However, the Bible reveals this about human
rationalizations: "There is a way which seems right unto a man,
but the end thereof is the way of death" (Proverbs 14:12 and
16:25).

     Though murder, war and death are horrible facts of human
history, abortion is a greater evil because iy is execution of
the most helpless of all human beings - the unborn. This is the
epitone of detestable human behavior and it will end in death,
the death of society.


A CALLOUSED, HATEFUL SOCIETY

     Civilization, worldwide, has grown calloused and insensitive
about the sanctity of human life. Pitted against each other in a
confused maze of self-survival, physically, emotionally,
religiously, economically and ideologically, humanity as a whole
has become hateful and indifferent.
     In such an emotional and spiritual vacuum, each person is
striving for self-identity, self-fulfillment, and self-
gratification in a frenzied grind of pleasure-seeking and
indulgence.
     Other forces are bombing and assassinating political and
religious foes in a mindless quest for control and power.
Militant movements rally their forces in marches, demonstrations
and riots to demand what they claim is their right.
     Hanging as a threatening pall of death and cosmocide is the
everpresent specter of nuclear war. With this as the backdrop of
our society, is it any wonder that we have become calloused,
hateful and loveless?


CHAPTER 6

SIGN OF THE END OF THE AGE

     Jesus Christ prophesied of these times. "And you shall hear
of wars and rumors of wars; see that you be not troubled; for all
these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For
nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom;
and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in
different places. All these are the beginning of sorrows"
(Matthew 24:6-8).

     Paul to the evangelist Timothy was inspired to write
concerning the end of human rule upon the earth: "This know also
that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be
lovers of their own selves (i.e. selfish and unconcerned for
other human beings), covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers,
disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural
affection (is it natural for a mother or father to want to murder
their unborn children?), trucebreakers, false accusers,
incontinent, fierce, despisers of those who are good, traitors,
heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God"
(2 Timothy 3:1-4). 

     Yes, the sexual experience is pleasurable and God meant it
to be so; but, with the pleasure comes the responsibility for
one's actions. To hate the unborn enough to kill them is to hate
the God who created each of us. 2 Timothy 3:7: "Ever learning,
and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."
     In this twisted, demented and Godless technological world,
sexual morality is disdained and rejected. Belief in God and
striving to live one's life according to His commandments and
laws are ridiculed and repudiated. On the other hand, lust,
immorality and sexual gratification are glorified.
     Immoral sexual activity becomes a goal to achieve as an end
in itself. This becomes the epitome of self-expression. While
striving to reach loftier heights of sexual attainment as the
epitome of self-expression, the society has descended into the
abyss of sexual depravation and perversion. Caught in the vortex
of this immoral swill, our society, from the adolescent to the
aged, has debased itself before the altar of sin and death.


NATIONAL SIN

     The United States of America was built upon the foundation
of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Our forefathers
believed in God. They believed that His laws were the supreme
foundation of all our national laws. They believed in love of
God, love of country and love of neighbor.

(It was a very misguided in many ways, belief in God, but they
did have some form of "God-mind-set" and many of the laws of God
were taught and upheld - Keith Hunt)

     But today, we have been deceived into believing God either
doesn't care about humanity, or that He does not exist. Con-
sequently, we have rejected and ignored God as our Creator. We
have repudiated and abandoned His laws and commandments as a
standard for moral conduct.
     In the name of liberty, we have abandoned morality. In the
name of love, we have embraced lust. In the name of the pursuit
of happiness, we have fostered selfishness. In the name of
freedom, we commit murder. In the name of progress, we have
extolled depravity. In the name of separation of church and
state, we have accepted agnostic and atheistic philosophies
devoid of godly values. Yet, we proclaim ourselves to be wise,
educated and sophisticated.
     The truth is that our national morals are depraved,
degenerate, and perverted.
     Abortion, which is murder of the unborn, is an attempt to
solve the problems of sin by removing the effects. God says in
His Word: "There is a way which seems right unto a man, but the
ends thereof are the ways of death" (Proverbs 14:12 and 16:25).
     Abortion is heaping the sin of murder on top of the sins of
lust, fornication and adultery. Sin therefore is multiplied and
increased. (And we need to add - selfishness, shacking-up
together with a lack of serious marriage plans, living just for
the moment attitude - Keith Hunt).
 
     We should be solving the problems of sexual immorality by
teaching and living by God's laws and commandments. Instead,
through sex education we are brainwashing and indoctrinating our
youths to practice immorality. Ostensibly, this is done to create
knowledgeable, caring and loving adults without sexual hangups
and inhibitions. Instead, we are creating one of the most immoral
nations on the face of the earth.


CHAPTER 7

SEXUALITY WITHOUT MORALITY

     Those who are fighting against federally paid abortions on
demand realize that the United States Government is teaching
sexual promiscuity. Even their official publications espouse
humanistic values of "doing your own thing." The intent behind
such publications is truly diabolical.
     Here are some excerpts from an official Department of
Health, Education and Welfare publication. This is available at
all Planned Parenthood centers. It is entitled "Choices - You and
Sex."


"There are two important facts to understand about sexual
feelings. One - sexual feelings are normal. Two - sexual feelings
must be handled in a mature way (as we will see, this does not
mean Godly morality and love, but sexual promiscuity with con-
traception and abortions). As you begin to share close
relationships with someone of the opposite sex, you will need to
make decisions about how you will manage your sexual feelings.
You will be influenced by many people and events as you make
decisions. Your friends, your parents, and other important adults
influence you. You will be influenced by commercials on
television, movies, songs, books, newspapers, and other things
you read and see. Making decisions about sex isn't easy. It's
extra hard when the things you see and have read make it seem
like everyone's having sex (which is a result of the U.S. Supreme
Court decisions on obscenity and pornography), or that sex is the
answer to all your problems. It's also hard if you are using
drugs or alcohol which change the way you make decisions."

     Well - the truth is everyone isn't having sex, and sex
doesn't solve problems. As a matter of fact, sex causes problems
if you and the other person aren't ready to be mature about it.
(The Bible shows that sex in marriage is godly and mature. The
government teaches that sex without contraceptives and abortion
is not mature). Childish attitudes about sex always get you into
trouble of one kind or another.

"What value are values? How do you decide about your own sexual
actions? First, you will want to look at your sexual values.
Sexual values are personal beliefs about sex that are important
to you. For example, if you think sex before marriage is wrong,
then this 'value' will probably influence you to wait until after
marriage before you have intercourse. Your values are what you
think or believe or feel, and your actions are a result of those
values." 

     Values come from many sources - parents, friends, admired
adults, and others (such as movie idols, music stars, acid rock,
rock and roll, country and western, etc., whose immorality and
drug advocacy has spewed a trail of death, destruction and
depraved lives offered on the Devil's altar of promiscuity).

"It is important for you to think about your values before you
make sexual decisions ... the main thing is to be clear on what
you think and how you want to act. Why? Because beginning now
you're going to have choices - some of the most important choices
you will ever make ... 'to do or not to do' ... you, like all
young people, make choices about how to spend your time, how to
pick friends, and how to plan your life. Young people are also
under pressure to make choices about their sexual actions. Many
young people choose to start having sex before they graduate from
high school or before they marry" (Choices, p.2-5).

     Then the booklet goes on and covers some ground about the
alternatives with which one would be confronted.


WHAT IS NOT SAID

     Next, in the middle of the pamphlet, there is a long section
about birth control and the various methods. It describes eight
methods of birth control and how anyone, especially teenagers
without parental consent - can obtain most of these
contraceptives free from various clinics, such as Planned
Parenthood. Also, it is stressed that there is free counselling
in these matters, as well as advice on birth control, including
abortion information.
     After that is a section on unplanned pregnancy. 

"When most young people begin to have sex, they don't think about
becoming a parent. If the young girl becomes pregnant, both she
and her partner will have many decisions to make. The first
decision is whether to continue the pregnancy or to have an
abortion" (Ibid., p.11).

     Not one word of advice to marry and make this situation
honorable before God and society was given.
     Notice, all the way through these quotes there is no mention
about godly love and morality. While God's standards, laws and
commandments are not directly attacked, they are distinctly
ignored as nonexistent.
     The biggest offender of separation of "church" and "state"
is the United States Federal Government and particularly the
Supreme Court. It has taken to itself the prerogative of
legislating morality. Legislating morality is the sole
prerogative of God Almighty.
     Therefore, they are sitting as God, rather then governing
the nation under God. The American people have accepted the
secularized government as God. This is idolatry.
     Since they have rejected the True God who is Creator of
heaven and earth and all peoples, they have also rejected His
laws and His commandments. Instead of legislating morality and
goodness, they have legislated immorality and wickedness.


CHAPTER 8

IMMORALITY WILL DESTROY A NATION

     When a nation or civilization debases its moral standards
and rejects the Creator God and His laws, sure destruction
follows. Every civilization of the past ended because of
corruption and immorality. This is the pattern the United States
has been following. It must be reversed if we are to continue as
a nation.
     In Romans the first chapter, God shows what happens to any
people who reject God: "For the wrath of God is revealed from
heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who
hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be
known of God is manifest in them; for God has showed it unto
them" (Romans 1:18-19).

     This is especially true about the scientific facts which
show when human life begins. It is expedient to ignore the fact
that life begins at conception - but they know better. It is
expedient to reject God's existence and power, and His moral
laws.

                           ....................


To be continued

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND ALL LEADERS OF THE ISRAEL NATIONS, ALL WHO
WILL YET COME IN THEIR PLACE, ALL WHO HAVE OR WILL ACCEPT, AND
GIVE CONSENT TO "ABORTION ON DEMAND" - I TELL YOU YOUR DAY OF
DEATH IS COMING - GOD WILL NOT HOLD BACK END TIME PROPHECIES
FOREVER. HE IS PATIENT RIGHT NOW BECAUSE HE HAS THE POWER TO
RESURRECT ALL THOSE KILLED FROM ABORTION ON DEMAND. BUT OUR
NATIONS, AND ALL NATIONS, INVOLVED WITH THIS GREAT SIN, WILL ONE
DAY REAP WHAT IT HAS SOWN - DEATH AS THIS WORLD HAS NEVER
EXPERIENCED IN ALL OF ITS HISTORY.

THE WORLD AND ITS NATIONS HAVE DECIDED TO BE ON THE WRONG SIDE!
THEY HAVE DECIDED TO IGNORE AND TO FIGHT AGAINST THE PERFECT
RIGHTEOUS GOD OF THE UNIVERSE. THEY WILL REAP THE BITTER RESULT
AT THE END TIME.

BUT YOU CAN GET ON THE RIGHT SIDE - ON THE SIDE OF THE ALMIGHTY
GOD. IT IS AS SIMPLE AS ACCEPTING JESUS CHRIST AS PERSONAL SAVIOR
- REPENTING OF SIN - AND WILLING TO LIVE BY EVERY WORD OF GOD AS
GIVEN IN THE BIBLE.
