No Picking and Choosing

If we choose to follow Christ, we choose to believe that His Word, the Bible, is the Truth; all of it, not parts. I do not care what the world or the government, or my own flesh, for that matter, has to say about the sanctity of human of life, I care and believe what the Word of God says!

The World’s View

The Biblical View

SEX is a physical and emotional desire to be fulfilled by consensual union.
 SEX is the physical, emotional, and spiritual union of a married couple (Genesis 2:24-25).
 PREGNANCY begins with attachment of an embryo to the uterine wall (implantation). If desirable, pregnancy is good. If undesirable pregnancy is a problem, and it is the woman’s right to choose whether or not the product of conception will be allowed to remain in the uterus or be terminated by abortion.
 PREGNANCY begins with the union of egg and sperm (fertilization). God “opens the womb” and is in control of the timing and continuation of a pregnancy, whether it is planned by the parents or not (Genesis 29:31, 30:1-2, 22-23; Psalm 119:73, 139:13-16). An unplanned pregnancy may be a crisis to the parents, but it can and should be dealt with in a way that honors the sanctity of human life.
 CHILDREN should be wanted or planned. If not, they are a burden.
 CHILDREN are a blessing from the Lord (Deuteronomy 28:4, 11; Psalm 127:3-5; Isaiah 40:11).
