/find ways to stop the demand for abortion, not outlaw abortion
It would be great to be able to stop that demand. God says plenty about abortion.
if you are interested, below is a link to Pastor's notes regarding abortion. This is in notes form.
and if you want to sit through the sermon here is the link: http://fbch.com/media/player/?type=v...ervices&id=214
my favorite part in the notes state:
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless,and see that they get justice.” Proverbs 31:8-9 (NLT)
“There are six things the L
ORD hates—no, seven things he detests: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent . . .”
Proverbs 6:16-17 (NLT)
‘But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their
fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.’ Revelation 21:8 (NLT)
“Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.”
2 Corinthians 7:10 (NIV1984)
Pretty clear to me what God says about abortion.
English Standard Version (ESV)
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
