Pro-Life vs. the Christian Bible

Just a thought: Most of the people who are part of the Pro-Life movement believe in the inherent truth of the Christian Bible as it is written. Followers of the Christian Bible as it is written could never be part of the Pro-Life movement for a few reasons.

Most argue that life starts at conception. The Bible makes reference to when life has value in four areas: First, in Genesis, life began with the “breath” breathed into Adam, not his formation; second in Leviticus 27, when being dedicated to the Lord, only babies who were over a month old were given a “value”; third, in Exodus 21:22-23, the damage a man is paid if his wife is hurt does not include the unborn child; and in Numbers 3:15-16, the Lord God had Moses perform a census that only counted those who were a month old or older. When the research is done, it becomes clear that according to the Bible, life begins with breath, and has value only after the first month. To follow the teachings of the Bible these people could not use the “conception” argument.

 

In Numbers 5:21-28, the Christian Bible not only orders abortions to be given for social stigma reasons (the possibility of female unfaithfulness), but has them administered by His priests. This means that according to the Bible, any pregnancy that is not the product of the man married to that woman is allowed by God to be aborted.

How dare they challenge their own God?

Jesus on the Personhood Movement

Personhood activists, this blurb’s for you!

Read all of my words, and then read the words of Jesus in the Bible, so you can know that I speak the Truth, in understanding Scripture. Jesus has a plan for His followers to help in bringing people to God. Jesus teaches his followers to act in meekness, humility, love, respect, kindness, acceptance, and forgiveness. Jesus teaches that that is the way to treat people who do not follow your morals. Jesus said noone comes to the Father except by him.  The only way to lead people to God is to follow his example. I am typing these words, but they are the lessons of Jesus. Heed them. Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for their judgmentalism and for their use of Law to force others to conform to their moral codes.

Before you let your anger direct you away from this, recognize that these are the ideals of Jesus, and then consider both where your anger comes from, and what Jesus had to say about acting in anger. The acts of the Personhood movement violate each and every one of these directives, given by Jesus. The acts of the Personhood movement do exactly those things Jesus that Jesus rebuked his challengers and followers for doing and thinking.

If you wish to help people find God, or even if you just want to claim to follow Christ, then you need to repent your indiscretions, and start reaching out and ministering to the needs of the sinners, until they come to you to ask “why”. Only then can you lead them to God. What you are doing now pushes people away from you, and destroys your witness. You push people away from God. Reread your Bible, without the anger that has directed both you and your teachers away from the words. You will discover that Jesus spoke out against things like the Personhood movement when he rebuked the Pharasees for their involving themselves in the lives of others. Jesus would not approve of the anger and hate that fuels this movement. He would not approve of taking away the rights of others. He may not have approved of concept of abortion, but he did speak directly against your response to it.
