There is no doubt we serve a God who loves all people and who desires that all would come to repentance and salvation. There is also no doubt from Scripture that His love begins at the moment of our conception. Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
Last week the Associated Press published a story about President Obama’s feelings toward the unborn. “President Barack Obama on Friday struck down the Bush Administration’s ban on giving federal money to international groups that perform abortions or provide abortion information.” President Obama said, “I have no desire to continue this stale and fruitless debate.”
It is ironic to me that in the midst of an economic crisis, U.S. taxpayer dollars will be sent overseas to “family planning groups” that will provide abortions.
Many Americans whom we love and for whom we pray are victimized by the secularization of society and philosophies of pluralism. As a Christian who believes God’s Word, I must continually stand upon its promises and teachings. God’s Word is very clear concerning the subject of the value of life and regarding His desire of inclusion and blessing for the pre-born.
