I am often asked why millions of women prefer to kill their own baby rather than choose a loving adoptive home for their child. My answer? The reason that millions of mothers murder their babies is the very same reason they are sexually immoral. They have a fatal HEART condition: SIN.
Jesus explained: "For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality..."
~ Matthew 15:19, Mark 7:21
"The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like.... I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God." ~ Galatians 5:19-2
The girls & women whose HEART & soul are corrupt & fueled by lust & evil simply ACT upon their lust & DO the evil that is conceived in their hearts. They are cruel & ruthless toward their young. Fornicators are often unsympathetic & have no compassion on the child of their womb. Abortion is simply an outworking of the corrupt sinful nature.
Romans 1 describes the pit of stinking wretchedness that is the human heart. While they KNEW God, they did not consider Him worthwhile to consider or acknowledge. Verses 29-31 explains the manner of life of the wicked: "They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless."
No Christian should say that women who are sexually immoral & who murder their infants are only sinning because they are 'coerced'. That is simply UN-biblical. Romans 1:18-20 describes the fornicating abortive girl or woman as one who KNOWS... God & His righteous & reasonable requirements of her (general revelation), but who does what He forbids (goes against her conscience) anyway: "The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are WITHOUT EXCUSE."
Verse 32 reinforces the fact that the mother who kills her baby is 'without excuse' "Though they know God’s decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them."
How mercifully and marvelously is the Lord Jesus suited to the every condition of our sinful, fallen humanity. Take the present illustration. Sin is a deadly wound, a raging malady of the soul. Jesus is revealed as the Great Healer, His blo...od the sovereign remedy. His own gracious words teach this. "The whole need not a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." What joyful news is here! It is as though a royal proclamation had gone forth throughout a plague-smitten city that a sovereign remedy had been discovered and an infallible physician provided, and that whoever were willing to avail themselves of the provision, would be freely and effectually healed. ~ Octavius Winslow
How sad that the woman-centered, therapeutic 'gospel' is being sold as 'Christian' to sexually immoral woman who are laden with the real burden of sexual sin & bloodguilt. The language of much of what is perpetuated in the pro-life community is a message of 'considering options' (including murder!) BEFORE abortion & a false impression of 'victimhood', & 'regret' for 'mistakes' AFTER abortion.
As followers of Christ we should be teaching the lost girl or woman about God's sovereign act of designing, creating & sustaining her AND the child in her womb. We should be teaching the ungodly about her Creator's righteous rule over her life. We must tell pregnant women that the Bible teaches that her child is not a mistake or an accident, nor is he an 'option' or 'choice'. Psalm 127:3 declares that her little one is a GIFT from God. To be faithful salt & light to a perishing mom (& her innocent child) we must give her the clear biblical command to REPENT of her sins against Him (especially sexual sin & murder in their heart as these are the outward symptoms of her inward problem) & command her believe upon Christ, the Redeemer!
It is the duty of Christian parents to raise their children in the nurture & admonition of the Lord. I am afraid that many church-going parents are not teaching clear biblical doctrine & life holiness to their children. Some are leaving the instruction & discipling to youth ministers who are busy organizing childish games & entertainment for them. It is the awesome privilege of believing moms & dads to lead their families in following Christ.
However, I have seen unregenerate children of faithful believers become wicked, selfish, fornicating, porn-addicted, drunks & druggies. I have mourned with friends whose daughters preferred their boyfriend to Jesus Christ & were more than willing to fornicate & have their dear little lamb sucked out of their womb, than to love & care for the baby or choose a forever family through adoption. Anyone who is sexually immoral & murders a baby only has themselves to blame. Sinners sin because they take pleasure in it. They take pleasure in unrighteousness. While there may be a number of people who may be culpable before the Lord for the sexual sin of a girl or woman & the murder of her baby, only the MOTHER can sign on the dotted line. The pregnant woman is the one who has to give consent. If she doesn't have intercourse in the first place & doesn't go to the killing place in the second place & doesn't give consent in the 3rd place & doesn't undress & put her feet in the stirrups in the 4th place, she would have no responsibility. But, because the sexually immoral aborting & post-abortive woman has done all of these things, the sin is on HER rap sheet.
Shamefully, BEFORE murdering their babies, many girls & women are being given 'non-judgmental', 'non-directive' purportedly 'faith-based' counseling (support) as they make the 'decision' whether to kill their baby or not. Instead of being plainly taught what the scriptures teach about sin, righteousness & judgment, many sexually immoral girls & women who murder their infants are being counseled to receive post-abortion counseling (SUPPORT) for their 'decision'. This is blatantly godless, WORLDLY, humanistic & UN-biblical.
Beware, O my soul, of any healing but Christ's, and of any remedy but His blood. Watch against a false healing of your wound. None but Christ, and nothing short of the blood of Christ. Take your case, as it is, to Him. Go to no minister, to... no church, to no rite, to no duty, but go at once to Jesus and His blood, and cry--believingly, importunately cry--"Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed." ... He heals sin's worst malady, cures man's incurables, and never loses a patient who seeks His saving touch. "Lord, be merciful unto me--heal my soul, for I have sinned against You." ~ Octavius Winslow
Beware those who offer a FALSE peace for their is NO PEACE, says the Lord, for the wicked.
Much of today's 'counseling' & pro-life rhetoric is blatantly UN-biblical, which means, it is a DECEPTION. In Jeremiah 8:11 God spoke to the prophet..about this sort of thing, saying: "They offer superficial treatments for my people's mortal wound. They give assurances of peace when there is no peace." Another version says: "They dress the wound of My people as though it were not serious" In verse 12 the Lord declares what will be the end of their deceptive promises of peace: "Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush. So they will fall among the fallen; they will be brought down when they are punished, says the LORD."
Gospel-mourning is spiritual; that is, when we mourn for sin more than for suffering.
~ Thomas Watson
Without true gospel mourning for our sin there shall be no true gospel rejoicing for the imputation of the righteousness of Christ. Anything less is a fraud & it's origin & end is the same as the temptation of the serpent in the garden. DEATH.
Let us be ambassadors for the Lord & for ADOPTION. Let us encourage mothers who do not want to raise their babies to choose a loving adoptive mommy & daddy so that their infant may have a forever family ♥ www.parentprofiles.com ♥
Jesus did make it clear that unless a sinner repents, she will not be forgiven. The love of the Father will not abide upon her if she remains in her stubborn rebellion & sin. Only through the regenerative, redemptive work of Christ can a wicked sinner be made holy (justified), be forgiven & have peace with God.
