It is a double standerd from a selfish human perspective. and forgeting that God is pure, holy and Just.
Children are a way of God blessing a marriage. God's encouragement to be content (1 Timothy 6:6-10) not only applies to financial blessings but also
the blessing of children. Our greatest joy is knowing that our names are written in heaven (Luke 10:20). Because we have a place waiting for us in
heaven (John 14:2,3) we can be happy in life, even though we may experience some sadness and setbacks. if he takes that blessing away beofre it is
born that is his choice. If you really want to be arrogent you might as well blame God for all the unborn children that end up as a womens period.
This is something Theologians have been debating since probly moses's time. but the simple matter is, God is Holy, God is Just and God is without
sin. (how else could he be holy?)
God hates the sinner as well as the sin, and he loves the sinner too. In proclaiming the message of Law or exposing our rebellion and utter
sinfulness, God makes it clear that he hates all sinners when we are viewed as sinners under his law. And when proclaiming his message of Gospel and
announcing full forgiveness for sinners purely by grace and through the work of Jesus Christ, God makes it clear that he loves the entire world of
sinners and desires to bring us to glory.
Our task is to proclaim both truths in tandem, not confusing them or limiting them in any way. The danger of denying that God hates us sinners when
viewed as sinners is that it downplays the preachment of the law and tampers with the work of the law to prepare souls for the announcement of the
gospel. The messages are purposely contradictory, and when faithfully proclaimed together (but not confused or blended with each other) they serve
God's good purposes.
Scripture does not reveal what happens to babies who die through abortion or miscarriage. It reveals that all people are conceived and born with sin
(Psalm 51:5) and that without faith in the forgiveness given in Christ are lost. Normally God works such a faith through the Word and the
Sacraments--Baptism and the Lord's Supper. But with aborted or miscarried children, we do not have the opportunity to baptize them, nor can we share
the Word of God with them.
Therefore we cannot be certain about their eternal future. We cannot say they go to heaven, but we wouldn't condemn them to a future in hell either.
We leave such children in the hands of a loving God, knowing that he will do all things well. The tragedy, especially in the case of an induced
abortion, is that we cut short this life before we have an opportunity to share the gospel in Word and Sacrament. Thus, the certainty of the gospel
promise is replaced by the uncertainty of not knowing the eternal future of the child.
One section that may give comfort and hope to a mother who has lost a child through miscarriage or abortion is the account of John the Baptizer
responding with joy to the news of Jesus' birth (Luke 1:44). Yet what was true for John, who was set apart from birth for a special purpose, may not
be true for all people. God can work faith directly in the heart of a child, even before birth. But he has not promised to do so.
truthseeka, live up to your name. You probly don't even know what the word "repent" really means. It means "To turn away from" or "To
turn away from sin" the only time that I think that could of happened was on the cross when Jesus said "My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?"
in that case God repented or "Turned away" from his son. It has nothign to do with God sinning. maybe you should go and see if the Admins will
change your name into Liegivah
