Today, reply is on a debate about abortions, and judging others for their choices and opinions. Christians are encouraged to rely on counsels, guidance, and instruction within the household of faith that are available as divine law, sacred principles, a fresh endowment of spirit substance from the makeup of divinity, and the holy writings. The man-made belief system that we call the world generates arguments, meanings, and quarrels along with standards and values that promote spiritual confusion, and that challenge and contradict Christian belief. The issue of abortion is more than one of correct medical practice, or private and public health. Many hold that a fetus (the unborn, developing organism within a female) is not a child; therefore, removing and destroying such organic material is no different than what we do with a cancer. Others understand that childbearing is more than a carnal and physical work of ones flesh; the fetus is established as having personhood through operations that occur within both parents long before birth that entail accountability, commitment and love with emotional, psychological, and spiritual imperatives that may not be dismissed or ignored. There are elements related to birth control, gender differences and disparities, political and social imbalance, and responding to unexpected and unwanted pregnancy. There are issues of freedom from the duties, responsibilities, pain, and unpleasantness of pregnancy. There are issues of adult independence; exercising the privilege and right of decision-making for ones own benefit; how best to fulfill ones sexual appetite; how to respond to life opportunities; and promoting oneself to profit in various social settings and situations. Those in covenant relationship with divinity, who willingly present themselves to GOD for unselfish service, raise no objection against being held accountable for works such as creating families and stable communities; displaying Christ-likeness and the image of GOD; holy matrimony; parenting; priesthood; and demonstrating lives dedicated and devoted to carrying out the will of GOD. Christian believers are granted the example of the Virgin Mary—who was called upon to serve as the mother of Jesus Christ. Mary had been raised set apart (sanctified) for divine service, yet, was despised because she was a childless woman. The angel Gabriel visited Mary as a sign that the things proclaimed, promised, and prophesied from GOD for Israel and for mankind would all appear, and become manifest. When it was announced that she would be a caretaker and mother, her response revealed a correct commitment and readiness to serve, and she acknowledged and proclaimed the name and works of GOD. It is written: Luke 1: 46-55, King James Version (KJV): 46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, 47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. 48 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. 49 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. 50 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation. 51 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. 52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. 53 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. 54 He hath helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy; 55 As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.

Is it Pro-choice or pro-abortion?

In religion class we we’re having a debate about abortion. Pro-life vs. Pro choice. Someone then decided to talk about a girl who was pregnant and decided to keep the baby because that was HER CHOICE. Now one of the people who claimed to be pro choice started asking questions as to why the girl decided to keep the baby. She said that the girl should’ve had an abortion. “Why put yourself through that ****?” And I was there thinking, “because it was her choice. Why are you judging her choice when you believe a woman should do whatever they like with their body?” Keep in mind this was not a thought that made me want to hate her. This was just a thought of realization. I just want my question to be answered so I understand a person’s beliefs. So I guess what I’m trying to ask, is someone that judges a girl for not getting an abortion still pro choice or is it pro abortion. I just want to understand. I’m sorry if I offended anyone, I just want to learn from you guys so I don’t question a person’s beliefs ever again on something like this.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. (Galatians 5: 16-26, KJV)

Anonymous”, here are some points you may find useful. Rather than focus on abortions and failed pregnancy (miscarriage, stillborn), the Scriptures provide accounts of miraculous birth, guidance regarding conditions and prenatal care for those born to become sacred servants of GOD as well as the “slaughter of innocents” by rulers who sought to maintain their political advantages by destroying every child that could have been sent from GOD. Many mature Christian believers think of their choice for Jesus Christ as their redeemer and savior as also having provided closure and resolution for multiple problems and questions pertaining to how created beings and living creatures should respond to one another, and how mankind should respond to divinity. The ideas and language to discuss “pro-abortion”, “pro-choice”, and “pro-life” are from the man-made world system developed for exchange, trade, and survival, and does not appear within the holy writings that speak to human reproduction, the divine process to populate the earth, the appearance of divinity using human form as Jesus Christ (we say, the Incarnation), and the present embodiment of sacred spirit within humanity. Because Christians choose to acknowledge the authority, dominion, and sovereignty of GOD, abortion is widely understood as a medical procedure to terminate pregnancy where specific health conditions are diagnosed and evaluated that are obstacles to continuing the child’s development within the mother, and to completing a natural birth of her child. Practice of abortions by those who are not licensed and registered with the government as properly trained medical professionals has been regarded as criminal. For their collective survival, governments must address the issues of communication, population growth, the availability and distribution of shared resources (debts, fees, fines, taxes, etc.), and the provision of clean air, water, medicines, and food necessary for healthy living, and for maintenance of their commonwealth. New life in Jesus Christ and citizenship within the kingdom of heaven are not through human reproduction, childbearing, and birth so much as through the resurrection of Christ. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible on the birth of Samson, and a selection from the music ministry of the Pro Musica Girl’s Choir from Hungary:

(1.) Judges 13: 6-14, King James Version (KJV): 6 Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, A man of God came unto me, and his countenance was like the countenance of an angel of God, very terrible: but I asked him not whence he was, neither told he me his name: 7 But he said unto me, Behold, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and now drink no wine nor strong drink, neither eat any unclean thing: for the child shall be a Nazarite to God from the womb to the day of his death. 8 Then Manoah intreated the LORD, and said, O my Lord, let the man of God which thou didst send come again unto us, and teach us what we shall do unto the child that shall be born. 9 And God hearkened to the voice of Manoah; and the angel of God came again unto the woman as she sat in the field: but Manoah her husband was not with her. 10 And the woman made haste, and ran, and shewed her husband, and said unto him, Behold, the man hath appeared unto me, that came unto me the other day. 11 And Manoah arose, and went after his wife, and came to the man, and said unto him, Art thou the man that spakest unto the woman? And he said, I am. 12 And Manoah said, Now let thy words come to pass. How shall we order the child, and how shall we do unto him? 13 And the angel of the LORD said unto Manoah, Of all that I said unto the woman let her beware. 14 She may not eat of any thing that cometh of the vine, neither let her drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing: all that I commanded her let her observe.

(2.) Psalms 127: 3-4, KJV: 3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. 4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

(3.) 1st Timothy 2: 14-15, KJV: 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. 15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kV7l0uqOD_8.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
