WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?
One of the hottest subjects today is Abortion. No one is neutral on this subject. Some who advocate the right to abortion, say the Bible does not talk about it.
What Does The Bible Say?
Psalm 139:13-17 says... "For thou didst form my inward parts; thou didst weave me in my mother's womb. I will give thanks to thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are thy works, and my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from thee. When I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth. Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in thy book they were all written, the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them. How precious also are thy thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Luke 1: 40-41 says... "...and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. And it came about that when Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
Luke 2:12- says... "And this will be a sign for you; you will find a baby wrapped in cloths, and lying in a manger."
It is true the word abortion does not appear in the Bible. Neither do words like cocaine, internet, child pornography. But murder is condemned as in "Thou shalt not kill."
We also see in the above scriptures that God is involved in the earliest moments of life. John the Baptist, while still in his mother, is called a ‘Babe'. This is the same name given to the newborn Jesus. The Bible makes no distinction between pre-born and newborn babies.
With these truths in mind, we dare not even consider the killing of unborn babies.
