Sorry bout not posting in a while. I have been extremely busy doing.....well, whatever it is that I do. Anyway, I have been thinking about a ? that was brought up in my high school Sunday school class,and I would like you guys to tell us me thoughts on this subject.
Can someone be a "christian" and still believe that abortion is acceptable? Or can someone still be a "Christian" and believe there is more than one way to heaven, like thru different religions?
For example, in one of President Barack Obama quotes,( I am not trying to really pick on him, he just happened to be a person high up in the public spotlight who had this view) He says " I am a christian, I am a very devout Christian.." and he goes on to say that he believes in the whole death, burial, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Now the ? that was brought up was, how can he be a christian and still accept abortion? I think if someone had any concept of what the Bible says about abortion,(which i think is essentially murder), and even the ten commandments, you would realize that abortion is wrong. The Bible says when you become a New person, you put away the old person and everything that is ascociated with the old person.
Now another thing that I have heard that Obama has said is that He thinks that abortion is morally wrong, but, if he outlaws it, it will still continue to occur, and end up taking place in the alleyways and in unsafe places, which will cause more of the women who are having abortions to die. Some people think that is a coverup, some believe him. It doesn't matter if it's all a lie or not. It does matter tho, that in the U.S. alone approximately 3,700 aborions take place every day, and almost 1.37 million every year. 42 MILLION take place every year world wide.
Soo.. anyone who proclaims to be a christian, and yet still accepts abortion as okay, I will forever question how strong that person's relationship is,if they really have one, with God.
