Jesus Is Pro-Life
Many Christians believe the Bible is silent on the subject of God’s view on life before birth. We see clearly though that from Genesis to Revelations our God speaks of the humanity of man from conception to eternity. God places equal value on all people as revealed by His involvement in all stages of life, including prenatal life. The bible is filled with passages that talk about unborn children and recognize their full humanity.
Jesus is Pro-Life. When Jesus was about a month old in the womb, Elizabeth’s baby, John the Baptist, recognized His full humanity and leapt in the womb, calling Jesus, my Lord. As soon as Mary found out she was pregnant she went to visit her cousin Elizabeth who was further along in her pregnancy. The two unborn babies recognized each other as fully human long before either of them were born. Amazing!
Throughout Scripture we see babies even before being conceived as of great value to God. “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.” Jeremiah1:5. Paul said “But God had special plans for me and set me apart for His work even before I was born. Galations 1:15. Jesus loved the little children and recognized their value as equal to that of adults. Let the children come, even the littlest ones.
The Bible tells us that God is involved in our creation from the womb. “God made me in my mother’s womb, and He also made them; the same God formed both of us in our mothers’ wombs.” Job31:15. The best known passages are in Psalms. “For thou are He who didst bring me forth from the womb.” Psalm 22:9-10. “Thou hast been my God from my mother’s womb. For Thou didst form my inward parts; Thou didst weave me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to Thee for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. “ In Isaiah 44:24 we read “Thus says the Lord, your redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb.” God says we are fully human in the womb.
Another area where God has spoken repeatedly on the sanctity of life is found in such passages as Psalm 82:3-4. “Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.” Who is more innocent or helpless than an unborn baby. He cannot help himself. He has no power whatsoever over the decision his mom makes to kill him. His silent scream is heard by no one as he is given his death procedure. God designed the safest place for anyone to live would be the womb, under the protection of a mom. However, that has become the most dangerous place for anyone to live. 50 million American babies have not been safe in their mom’s womb. Lots of babies in other countries too. President Obama’s lifting of the Mexico City policy will increase the number of deaths to babies in other countries, supported by US dollars. It is a dark day for babies in American politics.
Psalms 94 says: “Who will help me fight against the wicked? Who will stand with me against those who do evil? Crooked leaders join forces against people who do right and sentence to death the innocent.” The day of judgment of America is coming.
May we who would defend these helpless children stand strong against the onslaught of the abortion holocaust. May we love those who believe in abortion as God calls us to love even those who would do this evil. May we speak the truth to them in love. May we offer hope and the message of God’s forgiveness to those who have aborted their children. Praise God that He has provided a way for all of us to be forgiven of our sins.
There is no question about it! Jesus is Pro-Life! What an exciting idea! He loved us before we were born. By wearing this bright and bold t-shirt you will be telling everyone that you worship a pro-life God; One that would move heaven and earth for one single soul.
