One very popular teacher and Author on WordPress. Has this to say when writing on Rapture, which triggered this post:
“The Rapture is only for those who have made that simple commitment (speaking of believers). Nonetheless, those who have never had the opportunity to believe, whether because of mental incapability or because they are too young to understand, will instantly go to Christ when He calls believers to Himself (Revelation 4: 1). Otherwise, God’s very character would be in question. His righteousness would be impeachable, and that is absolutely impossible.”
God’s character is not something that man can adequately judge, or impeach even if we feel differently than His actions seem to direct us. I say seem because God’s end game is based on His being all knowing. And because we unlike Him are imperfect we have no basis upon which to question Him. If we follow Terry’s line of thinking as many universalists do, not that Terry James is a universalist; we can become guilty of thinking that we know better than God. For this line of thinking overlooks who God is. He knows all, He looks upon every heart, when passing Judgment. Jesus makes being accounted worthy a requirement of the resurrection, and since the Rapture is attached to it; it carries the same prerequisites for worthiness. God will judge every man the same. He will judge us according to His word.
Now to a man’s thoughts who was just arrested for opposing abortion:
“Three thousand babies are being slaughtered daily in this country. And Christians must be emboldened by this growing trend of persecution. It is our responsibility and must be our resolve. We are called to live for Jesus, to speak the truth in love, and, as far as it depends on us, live at peace with others. But we must be a voice for the voiceless. And if our God-given rights are threatened in the process, we must stand firm and not back down.”

I have written my thoughts and questions on Abortion before. I will touch on them here again by way of questions mostly.
—Why would Satan want to Abort babies who are destined to proceed directly from the womb into Jesus presence for eternity?
—Why would God hate abortion knowing that fact?
—Why do we not really oppose abortion? — Is it because believing this makes it palatable?
—Why do mothers feel guilty later for aborting a child, if this statement made every day by the church is true?
—Why would I oppose abortion if this statement is true, knowing that at least 50, up to 90% of these children who are aborted would not have accepted and followed Christ in life had they been allowed to live?
—Is what we teach on babies death before an unknown age of accountability true? Does the word of God teach otherwise, and if so would that Teaching have changed this entire abortion statistic?
—What in scripture causes me to ask all of these questions?
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
—Should we question what Paul says here or should this cause us to ask the questions that I pose?
—If one believing parent can make the child holy before God, what does that mean if two parents are unbelieving?
—Is this why Satan seeks to abort babies, and why God hates abortion, and why we should also?
