Laws, Hearts, Scripture, Murder, Excuses

5 Ridiculous Excuses used by Christians and non-Christians to justify murder of the innocent.

Bible Love Notes is committed to helping Christians see the importance of taking a stand in areas where God has called us to stand. That's why we dedicated each Wednesday in January to this important subject. We are praying that more Christians will have the courage to speak truth when the subject comes up in conversations. 

Suppose your state had no laws against murder. Would you say any of these things?

1. “We don’t need laws against murder. We need to change murderers’ hearts.” 

2. Our views on murder are religious, and we need to separate church and state.

3. “Well, I’m personally opposed to murder, but I don’t think it’s my place to tell others that they can’t murder.”

4. “If we make murder illegal, people will still do it.” 

5. “Groups that focus on the rights of the murder victim care nothing about the rights of the murderer.

I’ve never heard anyone use these excuses for the murder of born people, but I hear them used every day for the murder of unborn people. And sadly, I sometimes hear these excuses from professing Christians. 

When it comes to the murder of the unborn, Roe v. Wade forced every state in the union to allow women to murder their babies “at any time, for any reason, in any way they choose.” Imagine if we forced every state to allow people to murder born people “at any time, for any reason, in any way they choose.” (source)

If you have used any of these excuses for abortion, please repent. It's true that we need to change people's hearts (excuse #1), including changing the hearts of those who make these excuses.

If you are a woman who fell for any of these excuses, you are also an Abortion Victim. Please seek godly counsel.

We won’t win every battle in our struggle against abortion, but Christians are called to: “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed.” Proverbs 31:8  


Below are other Bible Love Notes devotions about abortion. I encourage you to read each one so you are better able to speak up for the unborn.  

Even though the word "abortion" is not found in Scripture, it is clearly addressed. God is not silent or vague when it comes to this important subject. 

 Walking, Standing, and Finally Sitting
Psalm 1 talks about the power of evil in our lives and how we can stand firm. This short devotion uses a fitting analogy to point out the reality of abortion.

Would you have supported slavery if you'd lived when it was legal? I hope not! But you can be sure of this: if you justify abortion, you would have justified slavery. If you don't agree, I challenge you to read this full devotion carefully and prayerfully. 

Manipulative Ideologies
Pro-abortion advocates call themselves "pro-choice," but this short devotion explains the way they manipulate situations, not to offer women choices but to support their agenda. Let's make sure that we avoid the world's manipulative ideologies and get our facts from God's Word. 

This 1-minute devotion describes the serious sin of abortion, offering prayer for mothers and fathers who need God's forgiveness.

 Abortion Victims
Abortion sounds so clinical, but it's a sin that victimizes both baby and mother. This short devotion explains.

Ungodly Amusement
This 1-minute devotion talks about an example of humor based on ungodly practices, things which grieve the heart of God.

The death of Judge Ginsburg is a good reminder to consider the things that characterize our lives. Nothing shared about the judge in this devotion is slandering. In fact, she was proud of each thing mentioned in this devotion. It's not a political devotion. It's merely a statement of facts viewed in light of Scripture.

This devotion is a review of a podcast put out by Phil Visher's ministry. Phil is the creator of VeggieTales, but his advice in this video is no laughing matter. I review it because it is a good example of compromising innocent lives for less important gains.

When people argue against the truth, they come up with some strange arguments. The latest pro-abortion argument is both insulting to adopted children and ridiculous. 

You can detect a false teaching when it is based on a single Old Testament law that is taken out of context and misquoted. This false teaching claims that Exodus 21:22 is God's way of telling us that abortion is no big deal.

Beware of the deceptive rhetoric used by pro-abortion activists. Realize how much it resembles rhetoric supporting slavery.

Beware of the "scare tactics" Satan uses to advance his ungodly goals. This 1-minute devotion explains.  
At age 71, I want to thank my momma for life and LIFE. Please take a moment and let me explain in this short devotion. 

Some wonderful truths about God's love for us before we even saw the light of day. 

This short devotion addresses one of many ridiculous excuses for allowing abortion. Sadly, it's an excuse sometimes used by Christians.

It's so important to understand that culture approves things that are ungodly and destructive.

Romans 1:16-32 talks about the increase in wickedness and tells us something about the unsaved world. This 1-minute devotion explains.

We must graciously and firmly correct these two excuses about abortion.

Beware of Satan's popular lies. This 1-minute devotion offers four pertinent examples, including one about abortion.

Each person makes this choice and it's a life-changing decision. In fact, it's a life-and-death decision.

This short devotion starts with the fact that doctors once thought there was no reason to wash their hands when examining multiple patients, and it shares other areas where majority opinion is deadly.

A foster-care worker explained to me why it was important to have unrestricted abortion, and what he actually did was prove that abortion only made problems worse.

This 1-minute devotion explains some facts that should put every Christian on our knees praying that God will forgive our nation and restore us to humane treatment of all people.
