"Why did you just stop this couple having an abortion and then wave them off? Why didn't you offer to to adopt the baby after the lady had it?
Because they probably had a very good reason for wanting an abortion: maybey they had no money, maybey they just knew thhey couldn't cope with the demands of another child. If you make it your business to stop women having abortions, its definitly your business to offer an alternative solution which doesn't involve them keeping the baby.Obviously, since your faith helps you appreaciate the wonder of new life, yuo should be the one to take the baby. You neglected that part of your Christian duty, i am sad to say :( " -Lisa
Lisa, thanks for commenting and for reading my post on my first visit to the abortion clinic. A "very good reason" for wanting an abortion is not having money? Are you kidding me?! So let me rephrase what you are saying, It's okay to murder a baby in the womb because you have no money. Is that right? And, what you are also saying is that, It's okay to murder a baby in the womb because you can't cope with the demands of another child.
These are not good reasons for murder.
Finish this sentence for me, Lisa...."It's okay to kill a baby in the womb when?"
Please comment. I want to hear back from you.
Where do you get the notion that we "waved" them off? Where you there? Did I ever mention that we "waved" them off in my post? We provided an adoption alternative for their child. This is what we do with each person before they go into the clinic (that is if they will allow us). After Guadalupe walked out and jumped in the car, they drove off and didn't want to talk to us. We thought they were going to stop and that we would be able to talk to them further but that wasn't the case.
However, the good news is that they had information in their hands on how to find us, how to get their child adopted, and most importantly how to be reconciled to God.
Have you been reconciled to God, Lisa?
I appreciate you caring about my "Christian duty".... It is also my duty to tell you of the judgment to come.
Have you considered where you will go if tonight was your last?
If you have never thought about where you will go when you die...now is the time to do so. The bible tells us that life is like a vapor. Think about it. Your life appears for a little while and then it's gone.
Where will you spend all eternity when your life here on earth is over?
Think about it. The ultimate statistic is that 33 people out of 33 people die! That means you won't escape death. No one will. And eternity is a long time. In fact, just think, it's forever and never ends. There is no time in eternity.
Have you ever looked at yourself according to how God see's you? If not, here's what to do, evaluate yourself by the 10 Commandments to see how you measure up to God's standard of righteousness. This is what made things clear for me...
Have you ever lied (even once--fibs, white lies, etc.)? Have you ever stolen (the value is irrelevant)? Jesus said, "Whoever looks upon a woman to lust after her, has committed adultery already with her in his heart." Have you ever looked with lust? If you have said "Yes" to these three questions (by your own admission), you are a lying, thieving, adulterer at heart; and we've only looked at three of the Ten Commandments.
The bible gives us surety in the New Testament, "that no fornicator (a person who has sex outside of marriage), unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God." Ephesians 5: 5
Have you put God first in your life? Or have you created a false god to suit yourself; a god you feel comfortable with? If God judges you by that standard will you be innocent or guilty on the Day of Judgment? If you're honest and listen to your conscience you know that you will be guilty, and end up in Hell.
The reality of that should strike terror in your heart!
But wait, Lisa, listen to this...
There is good news.
God Himself made a way for sinners to be forgiven...Listen to this...
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16). Jesus Christ was fully God and fully man and was without sin. He suffered and died on the cross and then He rose from the dead, defeating death. You broke the Law and Jesus paid the fine with His precious blood for sinners! Today, here's what to do, confess your sins to God, repent (turn) from your sins, put your trust in Jesus to save you from eternal damnation, and you will pass from death to life. Only through Christ can God forgive you and grant you the gift of everlasting life.
Turn from your sins today.
