CLARITY – 8-20-18 Playing God


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 8-20-18

Playing God


What’s Happening:  “Recently, a lady (Deborah Edge) quit working at the Texas abortion clinic where she had been employed for 17 years and exposed some of their abuses… killing innocent infants born alive because they were of an unwanted gender or because they were undesired for another reason. Quoting the article by Sarah Terzo, ‘The claim that late-term abortions are only done for dire medical reasons is untrue,’ (–cNul5R8yieLd4jWVspEkZxT2n6dv_T9oX_Y8xXOR_yhamYMUqcz9HH-wCDt-Myvec6HPw_OKRnGf8lfjqo1RFLBhIHA&_hsmi=65259318). ‘My conscience bothered me at times and I would secretly try to change the patient’s mind during counseling. One woman came in who was pregnant with twins and already had another child. I just couldn’t counsel her to choose abortion and told her that there are other options. She chose to keep the twins and saw me a couple years later and told me how grateful she was for my advice and that her children were her joy,’ Edge said.”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “It may be tragic, but it’s not murder.”


Biblical Response:  “Really?! What else would you call taking a another human life without permission? Perhaps, you would argue it’s the mom’s decision….Perhaps, she’s playing God! One day, as a society, we are going to pay for the 60 million+ innocent lives we have sacrificed on the altar of inconvenience and ungodly desires.”


Christians? Playing God (or pretending He does not exist) is nothing new. One of the early church’s first ministries was to lurk beneath the bridge in Rome over the Tiber to catch unwanted infants being tossed in the night by murderous parents who didn’t want the ‘inconvenience.’ God help us!”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, give us the wisdom to know that there is a God…and we are not He; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
