Applied Belief: Aborting Jesus

How much would the organs, tissues, and body parts of Jesus have gone for today? Imagine the Son of God’s infant body. That is prime organic material we are talking about. Since God is Love and Jesus is God, his infant heart and brain would probably have had an astronomical demand. Mary and Joseph could have made millions of dollars with that abortion let alone Planned Parenthood. Imagine, Planned Parenthood’s Gatter could actually get 2 Lamborghini’s!

The then Virgin Mary could have been killed, stoned to death, when she got the infamous news that she was carrying the very Son of God in her womb. Joseph could have abandoned her. Facing so many challenges, aborting Jesus would have made logical sense. The life of the Mother, Mary would have been spared. Joseph and Mary could have gotten married without anyone questioning them. The Magi might have been disappointed to find no child if they came at all but hey with Jesus aborted Herod’s job would have already been done!

Thankfully Mary heeded God’s word, and followed His will above that of man and society. Joseph assumed responsibility for his soon to be wife and son. Mary understood what Planned Parenthood and all who support it have failed to understand in their rejection of God, that life begins at conception. Jesus was still Jesus the moment the Holy Spirit came upon Mary providing this miraculous conception. Jesus, God incarnate, was like any child, a baby from the very moment of conception. His DNA makeup and code at conception was there when Jesus was born and when Jesus died on the cross.

Mary understood that the scriptures reveal that, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.” (Jeremiahs 1:5) This means that even before conception, God had a plan for Jesus and every child conceived in the entire world. Mary and Joseph understood that God himself is the creator of not just the heavens and the Earth on day 1 in Genesis 1 but also all human beings. David wrote in his 139 Psalm that God knew him better than anyone. That God himself was responsible for David’s formation and birth like it has been, is, and will be for all children.

It is God who forms every child’s inward parts. He is the one who knits the child’s body together in the mother's womb. As you see the ultra sounds of children, the 3-D images and the animations on, you are watching God fearfully and wonderfully making the child. Therefore when Planned Parenthood doctors, surgeons and staff abort, terminate, kill and destroy a baby they are destroying the very handiwork of God.

Defunding Planned Parenthood is a must but even more important than that is the need for America to wake up and recognize the culture of death that is being perpetuated under the guise of the freedom of choice. From the killing of millions of children in the womb, the children who die due to violence at home or on the streets, the wars around the world, to Euthanasia, we are surrounded by death. Jesus might not have been aborted by Mary yet every time we choose death instead of life we abort Jesus and we reject God.

Jesus died once and for all that whoever believes in Him might not die but live and not just live now but have eternal life. (John 3:16) We must defend all life. We will only be able to do this if we turn to Jesus who himself is the way, the truth, and the Life. (John 14:6)

    This is an abhorrent topic and headline. Why on earth are so-called religious people still judging other people based on the cherry-picked and self-interpreted content of ancient, mis-translated fairy tales? And quoting sections as if they’re relevant to 21st century humans? Seriously, I think it’s time to take science more seriously and give it greater importance than ancient religions fairy tales. Maybe focus on real, scientifically based and proven issues that plague humanity: education, homelessness; gun violence. Turning to some character in an ancient book to dole out shame and judgement is irrational and useless. The Bible is no more factual than “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. Really, get a grip on reality. It will help humanity far more greatly, and far less judgementally.
