There is a reason the sun shines and dries things up. The rain falls and gets things wet. My immeasurable love for science is not a secret but I promise I'm not going into science right now. Nature cannot be altered without monumental consequences. When you breath, your oxygen should not be permanently replaced with carbon-dioxide and vice versa. It is natural for living creatures (Plants, Animals and Humans) to reproduce - Genesis 1:22; 1:28. Deliberate alteration of such natural process by putting an end to it cannot be done successfully without deadly consequences.

We can all agree that the sin of abortion is forgivable just like any other sin. However, if you are a Christian, the reason you don't commit abortion or murder, is simply because the bible said DO NOT. It's not because some political figure or some so-called prolife organization said not to commit abortion. We all know these politicians and their loyal followers like to use God's name in vain and for political gains. The same "prolife" people will tell you abortion is OK before six weeks or before you can HEAR a heartbeat. Even common sense tells you that pregnancy starts on day one; not day six, week six or month six. If the first six weeks is not part of the baby's life, then the next six weeks should not be counted either. DON'T destroy a human before it gets a chance to develop a louder heartbeat for your ears. Even after they are born, they still need to crawl and walk before they start running. In the same way, life starts on day one and develops from there.

Everyone is busy arguing about when "LIFE" begins. Yet, we all forget, a dead egg and a dead sperm CANNOT form a LIFE. If both are ALIVE when they came together as ONE, who cares about when you hear a heart beat? Adam was a human when God formed him from the dust of the earth. There was NO HEARTBEAT until he received the breath of LIFE but Adam was still described as a man or human (Genesis 2:7). This is because a human body can be alive or dead but the soul is alive from creation to eternity. You can destroy the body of a sixty year old person or a six-week old person but you cannot destroy their "living" soul. Some will argue the human is not "BREATHING" on it's own yet. If so, what do you think would happen if you went into a hospital and DESTROY a HUMAN that is hooked up to a ventilator and "NOT" breathing on its own? People undergoing surgery are usually hooked up to a source of oxygen; do you want to get rid of them too? Should we now end the life of the person walking down the street simply because they have oxygen tank to help with their breathing?

God has control over the soul of man, which lives inside the "human" body. Murder simply means you intentionally deny someone the opportunity to continue their existence here on this physical earth, just like Cain did to Abel. But the soul of Abel was still able to cry out to God after the physical death (Genesis 4:10). If you destroy a human, regardless of size or age, the choice to do so, is solely on you. There is no need to start looking for ways to defend your choices, rather, PRAY for forgiveness and do everything humanly possible to abstain from such sin in the future. Grace is always available to us all but we must not take it for granted.

Abortion will never be stopped because it is one of those sins in this world. If the so called prolife people care so much about abortion, they should start with stopping fornication or adultery, which are the number one causes of abortion. Even if one state ends abortion by law, it will still be done and the government official who ends it will not live forever in office. This is why they don't want to talk about the causes of abortion because it will not be exciting to their followers. The reason abortion is talked about more in the political arena, is simply to score political points in the name of God(Matthew 7:22-23). At least the other side of the political arena, who call themselves prochoice, are not pretending to run for office in the name of God. They know their so called choice is ungodly and they don't try to score points in the name of God.

We cannot claim to "know" God if we don't understand why we became Christians. This understanding means we went into an agreement with God and accepted the bible as our Christian constitution. The bible teaches us morality, which is the difference between right and wrong. But the worldly constitution is all about legality, which tells us what is legal and illegal. Something being legal doesn't mean it is morally right. I'm not saying to go ahead and start disobeying the government in whatever part of the world you find yourself. But make sure to "compare" their legal (constitutional) rights with your moral (biblical) teachings before reaching a conclusion on your choices.

This ability to prioritize who to listen to will help us stay on the straight and narrow because we will understand our walk with God better. So if prostitution becomes legal or constitutional tomorrow, you will not need a debate as to if you should or should not obey the government. You have already pledge to one source of information and truth, which is your Christian constitution - the bible. The bible sees sin as sin and as Christians, we don't need a court or a government to make this clear to us. When the courts or the government say that murder is a crime, this is good to know but this is not why you are not a murderer. You are not a murderer because you listen to God, not man. Paul, in first Corinthians 6 was upset that Christians were relying on unbelievers in a court of law (aka the government) to tell them the difference between right and wrong. He wasn't concerned about right or wrong that had to do with basic governmental rules and regulations like speed limits or stop signs. The right and wrong he was focused on was the moral and biblical truth about how we as Christians must live our lives here on earth regardless of what human rules may be out there.

No, Paul is not saying you can't go to court as a Christian. But you cannot rely on a court of law to tell you that stealing is wrong when you should already know this as a Christian. Long story short, Paul is basically saying we should know better (1 Corinthians 6:1-8) especially as those with access to the perfect and flawless law of liberty (James 1:25). The only law that should take priority in our lives is God's law. Lastly, NOT everything that "looks wrong" to us humans, is a sin. This is because not every human law is right in the sight of God. Daniel was thrown into the lion's den for not following the law of the land to worship another god. So the word "law" doesn't automatically mean something that is or should be BINDING to us as Christians. Remember, we are in the world but not of the world. The human laws will always change, so stop going crazy over it. Focus on the law of God, which is the same yesterday today and forever. The Lord is your strength and your fortress. Stay Blessed My Friends.
