Surgical or chemical–pills–birth control is not God’s will
To the Editor:
I'm sure the Citizen columnist Ms. Murray and I have much in common–love of God, family, and Country–but how to help America most is where we differ.
The only way for our nation to be healed is for God to do it, and Christians are the conditional key: "If My people, called by My Name...will...then will I..." 2nd Chronicles 7:14. How do we know what God wants us to do? What brings judgment? According to the Bible, sacrificing children to false gods brings judgment, and Americans, especially Christian Americans, need to stop this destruction down to the days-old child, which we all were at one time.
I worked at a crisis pregnancy center for 13 years, and abortion is definitely used as birth control. There have been an estimated 50 million abortions since 1973. I counseled women who rationalized abortion for the sake of a degree, family embarrassment, reputation, sports career, pride, proms–modern gods of one's CHOICE.
But what about birth control pills? Are Christians unknowingly aborting their babies chemically? Google this: "Do all birth control pills cause abortions?" Better yet, Christian, read Leviticus 20, 2nd Kings 17, Deuteronomy 12, Deuteronomy 18:9-13, Jeremiah 7 and Jeremiah 32:34-35. The Bible gives insight into how God views the killing of innocents: "...to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, which I commanded not, neither came into My heart".
Abortion, surgical or chemical, never came into the heart of God, but His ears are undoubtedly filled with aborted babies' cries. What do you honestly think it will take to heal our land?
