I understand your desire for freedom of choice. However, heaven aside, there is an earthly order of things: laws that are set up for the protection and peace of mankind. Murder is a crime in every state of America. My zeal is intensified by the fact that humans get punished all the time for murdering another human being, but abortion is the very same thing, and millions have gotten away with it and there is no justice. Each of our mindsets have an extreme. The end of my extreme is all human beings repent of their sins which harm not only others but themselves as well (abortions significantly increase the chances of breast cancer and future death when the woman decides to give birth to a child), embrace God’s plan for forgiveness and redemption; His perfect son who lived a sinless life, dying on a rugged cross for the sins of all humanity, and his resurrection from death, that whoever trusts in and gives their heart to Jesus, will receive forgiveness and likewise be able to resurrect a new person with godly desires through the power of the Holy Spirit who lives in all who choose to follow Christ, and will resurrect to life after they die, that if everyone embraces the loving sacrifice of Jesus, they will, by the power of His Spirit, be able to obey God’s command which Christ taught was firstly: love God with all your heart, mind and strength and second love your neighbor as yourself. If the world actually embraced the amazing gift God gave to humanity to redeem them, no one would be murdered or robbed or raped or cheated on, because love does not do these things. The end of your extreme is let everyone do what they want because it’s their choice whether wrong or not. So if ISIS decides to come to America (which they already are here and have created murder plots against innocent lives) and they decide to destroy humans, let them. They may be wrong, but hey, it’s their choice, their belief, who am I to judge? We have a judicial system that is supposed to judge and penalize wrong-doing, and maybe if someone tried to murder you by slicing you into pieces, you would feel differently about the helpless children being murdered by abortionists.
What if millions of Americans decided people on welfare or needing food stamps are an inconvenience because the money for those programs is coming out of their paycheck so they decide to kill everyone receiving funds from these things? Will you stand against that? Or will you allow injustice to create utter chaos and a highly dangerous environment for you to live in?
Dear woman, love does not turn a blind eye to the helpless, it protects them. God instituted laws for a reason: capital punishment began with him. He considers all of his offspring to be made in his image. He is just and the avenger of all evil. If someone murders his creation, there are penalties, and his word, the bible, calls us to defend the voiceless and helpless:
Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.-Isaiah 1:17
Thus says the Lord: Do justice and righteousness, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor him who has been robbed. And do no wrong or violence to the resident alien, the fatherless, and the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place.-Jeremiah 22:3
He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?-Micah 6:8
But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.-1 John 3:17-18
“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”-Matthew 7:12
Open your mouth for the speechless, In the cause of all who are appointed to die. Open your mouth, judge righteously, And plead the cause of the poor and needy. (Proverbs 31:8-9 NKJV)
There are many more verses on social justice, and that’s just my main point: we can desire and preach justice for ourselves if we are attacked or someone murders our loved one, but we will be hypocritical because we deny other humans the same right to justice because instead of living in their mother’s apartment, they’re living in her womb.
Love is not words alone, it is not sitting back and watching innocent lives be apart of genocide. It is sacrificing your own comfort, your time, your social status or even your own safety in their defense, because you love them and don’t want their precious life to be punished and snuffed out for no fault of their own.
