My wife brought this story to my attention yesterday, and I knew that I had to write about it. If you claim to be Christian, and pro-choice, a position that will never cease to baffle me, then this is something that I think might bring the whole issue more into focus for you. You are literally standing on the same side as Satan. In standing for unrestricted access to abortion, you are siding with the enemies of the Almighty God you claim to follow, and find nothing odd about it.
Consider the following, in the State of Missouri the law requires a three day waiting period for an abortion. The law also requires that someone seeking an abortion must be given the opportunity to see an ultrasound of the baby, must be given the opportunity to hear the baby’s heartbeat, and must be given literature that states that human life begins at conception. The obvious intent, of course, is to discourage women from having an abortion, or at the very least, allow them to make a fully informed decision. Sadly, this means that many women will have no excuse when they must stand before the Lord, and answer for shedding innocent blood.
In the case presented here, what we have is a situation where a member of a Satanic temple has challenged the law, claiming that it violates her religious freedom because she neither wanted the literature, the doppler/ultrasound, nor the waiting period. Let me say this again. A worshiper of SATAN wants to change Missouri law so that it would be easier for her to murder her unborn baby.
Have any of you ever wondered at the odd turn of events when Satanists and Christians might stand on the same side of an issue?! If I’m not mistaken, Scripture has a lot to say about this, and the basic message is: DON’T!!! How much clearer can this be? If it is something that Satanists want so badly they’re going to fight it out in open court, then it is something we ought to be fighting against! Rather than backing their play, the Children of Almighty God ought to be in there facing off against them!!!
Not only did Jesus speak to this, but so did Paul, James, Peter, and all the rest. Consider 2 Corinthians 6:14,
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
What does it mean to be yoked with someone? It means to be in relationship with them, to be bound to them, to have common cause with them. This applies just as much in marriage relationships as it does in championing a political cause; in this case, a cause in which people wish to murder the weakest among us in the name of Satan! How far have we fallen as a society when Satan no longer feels the need to hide his activities?! Now, I am neither making things up, nor am I imagining things. These people genuinely worship Satan, and I don’t mean in the metaphorical sense, as they claim. I mean in the literal, they-have-knowingly-forsaken-Almighty-God sense. What does God say about people like them? Isaiah 5:20, KJV,
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Does this mean that we cannot be friends with unbelievers? No. What it means is that we must avoid any entanglements with people who would lead us away from God, and this includes supporting any political ideologies that violate the Laws of God. What it also means is that the Lord has something in mind for those who make a free-will, conscious decision to defy Him at every turn. You do not want to get caught in the crossfire when that happens, and it will.
It is because of this that I have, on more than one occasion, turned my back on longtime friends, and even family, for the sake of my God. Jesus said in Matthew 10:37-39,
He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
Too many people, in behaving in a manner that they think is more Christ-like, are compromising the Gospel Truth that they are charged with sharing with the world. The end result is that they will find themselves compromised and in a position where they must choose between their God, and His Enemy. In Matthew 10:28, Jesus speaks to just how far we must be willing to go to follow Him,
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
To make things a bit more clear, consider Matthew 7:21-23,
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Now, let us bring this entire message together. We are COMMANDED to love God with all our hearts, our minds, and our spirits. We are COMMANDED to chuck it all in, and follow Him, even if it means that the world hates us, curses us, and seeks to kill us. We are COMMANDED to oppose that which God opposes, and support that which God supports, and He has NEVER been ambiguous about ANY of this. We need only pick up a Bible, and see what it is that God loves, and what He hates, and take our cues from that. Yet, some would ignore these facts, and stand in support of people who dedicate their lives to doing what God hates and what Satan loves! What exactly is it that we are missing here?! How did we, as a society, get to the point where we turn a blind eye to the wanton, murderous sacrifice of babies, and still have the temerity to call ourselves civilized?!
Here is my challenge to you, the pro-choice Christian. You have a decision to make, and neutrality is not an option. Do you wish to BE a Christian, to follow the commands of your Almighty God, or do you wish to turn your back on Him, and become a friend to the world? Take your time, choose wisely, this is literally for all of the marbles.
