For they have committed adultery, and blood is on their hands; with their idols they have committed adultery, and they have even offered up to them for food the children whom they have borne to me.Back before the Babylonian exile, the Israelites waged a constant battle against the fertility cults that surrounded them, and lived among them. . Believers in these cults believed, in the manner of infantile egoism, that they through their actions in keeping the fertility gods favorable to them, could bring the rains, and make the crops grow. So, the believers performed rites in front of the idols of these gods, and sacrificed children to them. (Compare these believers in fertility gods to global climate change alarmists today.) While their motives were certainly different, they were more understandable. For if there was no rain, there would be no crops, and the people would starve to death. Thus they had a powerful incentive. One can even understand in the circumstances that an ancient Israelite might take out a little insurance, right?
But, the one unforgivable sin, you see, is failure to trust in the Lord, the one who brought them out of Egypt, the one who defended them time and again. For as Jesus says, in Matthew 5:45:
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.So, our God, Creator of everything that is and everything that is not, finds the murder of your children as abhorrent as do we. Whether it is because of a lack of trust in God, or for other reasons, abortion is wrong.
But you don't believe in God, do you?a You are a modern woman, and above all that myth and legend, and superstition. And I am not here to change your mind, for that would be a fool's errand. I am here to tell you though, that you will not be happy as a result. You will pine for your child, and you will curse the day you listened to the feminists who said you could have it all. Another false promise form false prophetesses, for everyone must make choices, and some choices foreclose others. Be careful in the choices you make.
