How Do We Know God Is Anti-Abortion? It Would Appear Otherwise
What Does The Bible Say About Abortion?
Hosea 9:11-16 Hosea prays for God's intervention. Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer. Give them, 0 Lord: what wilt thou give?
Give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts. Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea though they bring forth, yet
will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb. Clearly Hosea desires that the people of Ephraim can no longer have children. God of course obeys by
making all their unborn children miscarry. Is not terminating a pregnancy unnaturally abortion"?
Numbers 5:11-21 The description of a bizarre, brutal and abusive ritual to be performed on a wife SUSPECTED of adultery. This is considered to be an
induced abortion to rid a woman of another man's child.
Numbers 31:17 (Moses)"Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every women that hath known man by lying with him." In other
words: women that might be pregnant, which clearly is abortion for the fetus.
Hosea 13:16 God promises to dash to pieces the infants of Samaria and the "their women with child shall be ripped up".Once again it appears God
allows the killing the unborn, including their pregnant mothers.
1 Samuel 15:16 God allows the pregnant women of Tipsah to be "ripped open".. It would appear that God allows pregnant Woman to be murdered, yet the
vocal Christian position is that God does not allow the killing of the unborn. How can this be? It doesn't make sense.
***********THIS POST WAS CREATED FOR THE PURPOSE OF INTELLECTUAL DEBATE BASED ON SCRIPTURE. SINCE THE POPULAR CHRISTIAN POSITION IS THAT GOD IS
ANTI-ABORTION, THESE SCRIPTURES ARE INTRODUCED TO DEMONSTRATE THAT MAYBE WHAT HAS BEEN PRESENTED AS FACT, MAY IN FACT BE EITHER A POLITICAL
POSITION***** OR THE INTERPRETATION OF A SELECT GROUP WHO REPEATS IT AS FACT WITHOUT CLOSER EXAMINATION******DISCLAIMER: THE AUTHOR OF THIS POST IS
NOT AN ENEMY OF CHRISTIANITY, NOR CHRISTIANS. IN FACT, THE PURPOSE OF THIS POST IS TO FURTHER EXAMINE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT MEN TEACH, AND WHAT
GOD REALLY SAID ON ANY TOPIC*****
Having said that......where in the Bible does it indicate that God is " anti-abortion"?
