Has the prophet of God failed in his warning concerning perhaps our greatest sin today before God?
Today in America and across the world, even as it was in Israel when their children were being sacrificed to Molech, there is a slaughter brought on by a selfishness and a lack of discernment.
The man of God lacks discernment concerning God’s word, consequently the woman lacks knowledge concerning this sin.
To abort a pregnancy is to take a life, and in so doing to prevent that life from having the opportunity to walk with God. Today pastors teach that an aborted fetus is taken to be with the Lord. If that truly were the case there could be little fault before God. Because 90% of all those who are today aborted would never have found God’s salvation once born into this world. In fact considering the teaching from the pulpits today, it can be rationalized that because one choses to abort they have saved their child from a life of trials and tribulations. But is this the teaching of scripture? And if not has false teaching taken the sting out of the sin of abortion.
There is a failure to teach the word of God on this subject. God not man establishes His rules. The man of God is called to teach or preach what God has said in His word. Not what is tickling to the ear. Listen:
For the unbelieving husband is sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified through her believing husband; for otherwise your children are unclean, but now they are holy.
1 Corinthians 7:14 NASB
Paul has clearly stated here that one believing parent separates the child unto the Lord. An unborn child with no believing parent is unclean and is not set apart before God. To abort that Child is equal to if not worse than throwing him or her in the fires of Molech once born.
But today’s prophet will say: surely God will not treat the soul of this innocent unborn according to this word. How can one believe such a thing. But this same prophet will tell us that a child who dies at the age of accountability without Christ will spend a conscious eternity in Hell. Is this God’s plan? Is God just? Is this God’s word?
Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— therefore the Lord God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. So He drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to the tree of life.
Genesis 3:22-24 NASB
God never intended for man apart from Christ to live forever in his sin. Man is mortal. Immortality is only given as God’s gift to man in Christ. Hell was created for Satan and His angels. It is not that He will not avenge Himself of His enemies:
“ Rejoice, O nations, with His people; For He will avenge the blood of His servants, And will render vengeance on His adversaries, And will atone for His land and His people.”
Deuteronomy 32:43 NASB
“ He keeps the feet of His godly ones, But the wicked ones are silenced in darkness; For not by might shall a man prevail. “ Those who contend with the Lord will be shattered; Against them He will thunder in the heavens, The Lord will judge the ends of the earth; And He will give strength to His king, And will exalt the horn of His anointed.”
1 Samuel 2:9-10 NASB
Even though Hell was not created for man, and in fact was not even mentioned as part of the Genesis creation still one judged for his sins must pay for his own sin. Hell was actually created for Satan and his angels:
41 “Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;
Matthew 25:41 NASB
Man who rejects the Creator who came and died for his sin will be judged. Only if God judges him worthy of eternity in hell will he spend eternity there, otherwise hell is a place of destruction. A fetus, a baby, a life in the womb who has never had the opportunity of choice will not be judged by the just creator for eternity or for any judgment in Hell as are the men of this world for their evil acts. A baby who has never escaped the womb has never seen God’s creation by which He judges man outside of the hearing of the gospel (Romans chapter 1).
But neither will this fetus who has no saved parent be taken to the Lord. The woman therefore who aborts her baby has greatly grieved God. His blessing of life has been spurned. This one who God has created with an opportunity to love and serve Him has been refused that opportunity by this one’s own mother.
This is why the guilt syndrome of a mother is so prevalent, because she has given no credence to God’s laws and exercising her own will aborts her child.
In fact a mother who has no conscience for this sin will not even be given a chance for repentance.
But for the mother who grieves over what she has done to her own child, there is hope. In fact there is hope not just for her but for her child as well should she repent and turn from her love of the world to a love for her God, who loves her so, and who gave His only Son for her sins. If she believes she and her child may be sanctified and made holy by her belief.
and after he brought them out, he said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” They said, “ Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
Acts 16:30-31 NASB
Once you confess that you have sinned and believe in Jesus payment for those sins then God not only forgives but He casts those sins as far away as the East is from the west in His creation.
To preach and teach that the fetus always goes to be with the Lord is not in keeping with the teaching of scripture, and to mislead women in this regard is to contribute to the abortion problem.
There is also a price to be paid for misleading the sheep.
