Abortion in the Church

Abortion in the Church

By Pamela

Years ago we were in a church service where at the end of the service a couple stood up and said with meekness and humility, "Before we can address the issue of abortion in the world, we are going to have to address the issue of abortion in the church." Few, if any were impacted with what was shared that morning.

There have always been abortions, even before it was legalized. Although none would have to seek an illegal abortion today there are many abortions preformed daily in secret. Most are oblivious to the fact that this is happening. These secret abortions are the abortions that take place as a result of the us of the Birth Control Pill, Patch, and Depo-Provera (the shot)

So much of the way we live, think and the things we practice in our life are things we have learned from the world. We do these things with no questions asked.

You might wonder, "How do these things cause abortion?" That is a good question and I want to expound upon that now. The Birth Control Pill, Patch and Depo- Provera ( the shot) has three mechanisms that make them "work."  They are: 1. inhibit ovulation 2. change cervical mucus so that the sperm cannot up to and unite with the egg 3. change the endometrium which reduces the likelihood of implantation of a fertilized egg.

These three mechanisms are designed to support each other. If the first one fails then the 2nd one will prevent conception. If they both fail and conception takes place then the 3rd mechanism should prevent the fertilized egg from being implanted into the uterus This third mechanism is abortive.

When the 1st and 2nd mechanisms fail then you have conception. A new life begins. Typically, the new person attempts to implant at six days after conception. If implantation is unsuccessful, which is the case if the 3rd mechanism is successful  the child is flushed out of the womb in a artificially induced miscarriage, which is in fact an abortion. The newly conceived baby dies because it cannot implant in the uterus and the remains are passed along in the next bleeding episode which, incidentally, is not a true menstruation, even though it is usually perceived as such. This is true even if the mother does not intend it, is not aware of it happening, and would be horrified if she were.

This is so sad to know that an unknown number of new lives are destroyed each day ! How many professing Christians have had babies conceived later to die because they couldn't implant in the womb? This should not be.

Hebrews 10: 26-27 says: For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. Before you new the truth of what the birth control pill-patch-shot did, you were ignorant. But now having been exposed to the truth you are held accountable. If you choose to ignore this information you are guilty of murder.

God, however is calling you to repentance and restoration. If you yield to His call you will receive forgiveness. I encourage you to do so and assure you that His arms and heart is open wide to forgive you and lead you in His way.

 You will have to abandon the use of these abortifacients. You know this world calls children a curse but God calls children a blessing. Psalm 127:3 says, Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward

The church has bought into the lie, "God gave us birth control and we would be irresponsible not to use it." Well, you should have the revelation now that God did not give us birth control rather the enemy of our souls, the devil. That was one of his plans to hinder and stop godly seed from being born. If he could do that then the ungodly seed would have dominion.  And as we see in this world the wicked are increasing on every side.

We are called to be lights in the world. If we train our children to be lights and walk in the ways of the Lord Jesus  then we are forming a mighty army that will be an effective force in the kingdom of God.

You might wonder, 'If I have another child how will I provide for it?" Well, there are multitudes of testimonies available to attest to the provision of God. When we give ourselves to the Lord and our seed then we are His and our seed is His. He is so mighty and faithful to take care of that that is given to Him. Doing things God's way always produces blessings.

For some the wife may be convicted and the husband not or vice versa. If you are not in a position that you can just leave your fertility in God's hands then there are other forms of contraception that are not abortifacients.  The pill- patch and Depo-Provera are not your only options.
