Abortion and Islam

Our Western culture was built on the belief that all people have value because they are made in the image of God. Over the decades that foundation has been crumbling. You can be sure that we are becoming a morally bankrupt society when murdering millions of children is glorified and justified as "choice". Well, you sure got that right! It definitely did not HAVE to happen; it was definitely a CHOICE! And you know what? God, the Judge of all mankind, is going to hold us accountable for our CHOICE. There is NO doubt about that whatsoever.
Those who murder these children think that God does not see, that He does not care. No, actually they don't even think there is a God. But you know what? All of their "wishful thinking" does not change reality. They may imagine that they are removing a lump of cells, but that does not change the fact that they are murdering innocent children. They may imagine that there is not God who cares, but that does not change the fact that there IS a God who will hold them accountable for shedding innocent blood.
The days of punishment are coming, the days of reckoning are at hand. Know this. Because your sins are so many and your hostility so great. (Hosea 9:7)In Europe and Israel, there is a lot of worry about the increasing Muslim population. The birthrate among those of Western culture is quite low, and they murder tens of millions of their children. Muslims, on the other hand, have a relatively high birthrate, and for the most part do not practice abortion. In not too many years, Muslims will be the majority in Europe and Israel. This is due partly to immigration, but also to a large extent is due to their higher birthrate.
It's just so ironic that it makes me want to scream: Europe and Israel are so worried about being outnumbered by the Muslims, but then they use birth control and murder tens of millions of their children through abortion to suppress their own population. Hey! Wake up! Here's how you can keep the Muslims from outnumbering you: HAVE BABIES! VALUE CHILDREN! STOP ABORTION! Duh?! Don't you get it?! No, I think we Westerners are just too blind and stupid!
The Bible says that children are a blessings from God:
Don't you see that children are God's best gift? The fruit of the womb his generous legacy? Like a warrior's fistful of arrows are the children of a vigorous youth. Oh, how blessed are you parents, with your quivers full of children! Your enemies don't stand a chance against you; you'll sweep them right off your doorstep. (Psalm 127:3-5, The Message)The Muslims take this to heart and live by God's words. They truly do see children like a warrior's fistful of arrows, who will give them the upper hand against their enemies (the West). They are happy to have a quiver full! More children mean more warriors for Jihad! For more on the Muslim view of children and abortion, read this article.
Westerners, on the other hand, are not believing or obeying God's word. They generally view children as a burden, and an obstacle to living for themselves and fulfilling their selfish desires. Children are not valued, and so they are terminated. In Romans 1:18-32, the Apostle Paul describes the devastating downward spiral that occurs when we turn our hearts away from God. It sure sounds like the abortionists to me. I will quote just parts of it here:
Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, He abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, murder, deception. They are haters of God, proud, and boastful. They invent new ways of sinning. They refuse to understand, are heartless, and have no mercy. They know God's justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too.I've even run across vile Web sites that try to use the Bible to justify abortion. It makes me want to vomit. I could imagine it probably makes God want to vomit too.
Is this following passage just for the Israel of old? Is it not equally for us today, who have murders tens of millions of our own children?
Listen to this message from Yahweh! This is what Yahweh of Heaven's Armies, the God of Israel, says: I will bring a terrible disaster on this place, and the ears of those who hear about it will tingle! For you have forsaken Me and turned this valley into a place of wickedness. You have filled this place with the blood of innocent children. You have built pagan shrines and have burned your children as sacrifices. I have never commanded such a horrible deed; it never even crossed My mind to command such a thing! So beware, for the time is coming, says Yahweh, when this garbage dump will no longer be called the valley of Ben-Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter. For I will upset your careful plans. I will allow the people to be slaughtered by invading armies, and I will leave their dead bodies as food for the vultures and wild animals. I will reduce the city to ruins, making it a monument to their stupidity. All who pass by will be astonished and will gasp at the destruction they see there. (Jeremiah 19:3-8)Can you hear the anguish in God's voice, when He says it never even crossed His mind to command such a horrible thing as killing your own children? Our sin is breaking His heart, but our hearts are so hard that we are not even phased. Yes, we are in BIG trouble!
They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons. They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters. By sacrificing them, they polluted the land with murder. They defiled themselves by their evil deeds. That is why Yahweh's anger burned against them. He handed them over to pagan nations, and they were ruled by those who hated them. Their enemies crushed them and brought them under their cruel power. (Psalm 106:37-42)Yes, God is quite able to use the Muslims to crush the West because of our shedding of innocent blood, the blood of our sons and daughters. He may even be getting to the point where's He is quite willing to do it, too. Amazing as it may seem, the Bible does say that there is a point where God is not willing to forgive:
Yahweh sent powerful foreign nations to destroy them, in accordance with the word of Yahweh proclaimed by His servants the prophets. Surely these things happened according to Yahweh's command, in order to remove them from His presence because of their sins and all they had done, including the shedding of innocent blood. For they had filled the land with innocent blood, and Yahweh was not willing to forgive. (2 Kings 24:2-4)In thirteen different places in the Bible, God warns against murdering your children. He's serious about this. Our collective guilt for the murder of 50 million children in this country during the past 40 years is not something that He can forget or gloss over. Even if abortion were completely stopped starting today, and not one more baby was killed, it still wouldn't undo the effect of all the killing over these last four decades. Punishment is coming. It must come. It will come. We WILL be held accountable as a nation for what we have done. And Islam, which values its children, may be the very tool He uses to accomplish His purposes.
O Yahweh, the God of vengeance, O God of vengeance, let your glorious justice shine forth! Arise, O Judge of the earth. Give the proud what they deserve. How long, O Yahweh? How long will the wicked be allowed to gloat? How long will they speak with arrogance? How long will these evil people boast? They murder the fatherless. "Yahweh isn't looking," they say, "and besides, the God of Israel doesn't care."
Think again, you fools! When will you finally catch on? Is He deaf — the One who made your ears? Is He blind — the One who formed your eyes? He punishes the nations — won't He also punish you? He knows everything — doesn't He also know what you are doing? Yahweh knows people's thoughts; He knows their thoughts are worthless!
Can unjust leaders claim that God is on their side — leaders whose decrees permit injustice? They gang up against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death. God will turn the sins of evil people back on them. He will destroy them for their sins. Yahweh our God will destroy them. (Psalm 94:1-4,6b-11,20,21,23)
