To The Daily Sun,
E. Scott Cracraft, talking about "Biblical Quarterbacking," I have to laugh. If it were a sport, I think E. Scott would be its Tom Brady.
Scott asks, "What would Jesus do today? Would he tell a 12-year-old victim of incest that she should have her baby?" First off Jesus is God. If he in submission to God the Father willed it that the girl should miscarry there would be no fault in him for he is God. If not. I do not believe that he would counsel her to act as God and add the killing of her unborn child to the wrong done to her. Another wrong would not make her situation any better and would leave her with the guilt of having killed her baby. Something that so many women who have had abortions deal with.
Yet most abortions are not precipitated by such a dramatic event, but often as an unplanned pregnancy where the girl thinks she's not ready to be a mom, or wants to finish her schooling, or her boyfriend does not want her to have it, or there is pressure from her friends or family to have an abortion. What we do here is to forget that it is God alone who gives and takes a life. (He has shown us in what situations we can take a human life and not be held as guilty and this is not one of them.)
We act as though we were God whom we are not, and kill this innocent life because it is helpless and we can exercise our self will over it; to our snuffing out of its life in order to accomplish our own end. We want to control the outcome of our lives, but we don't want to control our loins, or exercise due caution in our relationships, so we conveniently forget or deny that a child is a gift from God.
The pleasure of sexual intercourse by design comes with the burden of parenthood. In order to decouple these we have come to do what only God has a right to do. We teach our children that this transgression of what is our proper human boundary is a right that they should fight for. These are the mores of the society that we live in, and it is an offense to God.
If you have already had an abortion God wants you to turn away from your old life and turn to Jesus and He will forgive you of all of your sin and you can be released from your guilt and you will have it no more. Turn away from your sinful life and say, Lord Jesus, please come in to my heart and forgive my sins, and He will come into your heart and make His abode with you. Then find a good Bible preaching church and go to it. And have a happy forever.
If Mr. Cracraft thinks that I'm "Biblical Quarterbacking" I suggest that he should take up the discussion with me in this forum.
