Are we to follow the Word of God or the Word of Man when it comes to difficult decisions such as how to act when something sinful like adultery crops up in our community? If we are Bible-believing Christians, we are to follow the Word of God.
Adultery is wrong for many reasons, not least because it denies a husband the assurance that the children his wife bears are his. The Bible, however, has a solution for this. If a woman is suspected of adultery, her husband may cause her to go before the priest and drink bitter water that will cause her to miscarry her ill-gotten child. Numbers 5 says: “And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people. And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed. This is the law of jealousies, when a wife goeth aside to another instead of her husband, and is defiled.”
God himself enacted the law of jealousies when he caused King David’s newborn son, conceived in adultery with Bathsheba, to die. 2 Samuel 12 describes the whole ordeal, and states in verse 15 that “the Lord struck the child that Uriah’s wife bare unto David.” The Lord himself caused the child to die because King David had committed adultery.
The Bible’s message here is clear: children conceived in adultery are an affront to Biblical marriage, and they should be terminated, preferably before birth, when a draught of “bitter water” will do the trick. If not, God may see fit to erase newborns from existence as well.
The pro-life ethos is a direct affront to God’s plan in this regard, unless, of course, the woman in question is a Bible-believing Christian who has conceived the child with her husband. Then she should have as many children as possible (Psalm 127:5). In all other cases, the Bible is consistently pro-death for these miniature sinners. Those who believe all fetuses are innocent are willfully ignorant of the Bible’s teaching. God repeatedly commanded the Israelites to bash out the brains of heathen babies and rip them from their mother’s womb (1 Samuel 15:3, Hosea 13:16). King David himself even mentions this in the Psalms! Psalm 137 describes a fornicating or adulterous woman: “O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.”
God is just: he would never command the death of an innocent human being, unless it was his own son. Therefore, we can conclude that fetuses and babies are sinful, which is backed up by Deuteronomy 5:9: “I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,” by Psalm 51:5: “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me,” and by the expansive Exodus account of God killing every firstborn of Egypt.
Looking at these verses, it becomes evident that in our modern era, we should actively encourage God-haters, fornicators and adulterers to abort their offspring. Possibly, we should even go so far as to pay for their abortions. There is absolutely nothing in the Bible that would indicate otherwise, and there is a good deal to indicate that this should be the standard.
Thus, Christians need to re-evaluate pro-life slogans in light of Biblical mandate. We should edit pro-life bumper stickers and picket signs like this:
Instead of Abortion stops a beating heart: Abortion stops a beating heart, just as all-powerful God intended.
Instead of Stop Abortion Now: Have an Abortion Now, O Heathen.
Instead of Equal rights for unborn women: Unborn women have no more rights than born women, and their fate should be determined by those in authority over them.
Instead of Before I knit you in the womb, I knew you – God: Before I created King David to be a righteous fetus, I knew the plans I had for him – God.
Instead of Choose life, your mother did: Choose physical death if you’re going to give your child spiritual death.
Instead of Every child deserves life: Every child deserves hell.
At this point, some of you may be wondering why your pastors and favorite charities have got it so obviously wrong. Simple: they aren’t reading their Bibles enough, and they are putting their own preferences above the commands of Scripture. In an era where feelings are worshiped above the Creator, this is not uncommon. But we must be vigilant, casting every shred of heresy from among us, even if this heresy has taken the form of a tiny child!
