I was recently speaking with someone who said that abortion will never end because America is too divided on this issue. Is this true? Is America too divided on abortion?
If we were to roll the clock back 160 years, wouldn’t we have found America deeply divided on another issue, slavery? I’m sure that some back then felt the same way about slavery. But brave men and women refused to believe that slavery would never end, tirelessly worked to see it end, and in fact, were blessed to see slavery abolished not only in their country but also throughout much of the world.
Is it possible that men and women today can make an impact on our nation to end the shedding of innocent human blood and protect women from the horrors of abortion? Could we actually see an end to abortion in our lifetime?
Opening Passage – Psalm 106.
Will abortion ever end?
Answer 2: No! America is too divided on this issue!
Slavery in America
The Bible on Slavery
Abortion in America
The Sanctity of Human Life — Genesis 1:27 – “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (NKJV)
“The Voice of Your Brother’s Blood Cries Out to Me from the Ground” – “… The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground.’” (Genesis 4:8-10 NKJV)
The Death Penalty Instituted to Protect Life – “Surely for your lifeblood I will demand a reckoning; from the hand of every beast I will require it, and from the hand of man. From the hand of every man’s brother I will require the life of man. Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man.” (Genesis 9:5-6 NKJV)
Cities of Refuge Created for Manslaughter and The Death Penalty for Murder – Numbers 35:30-34.
Cities of Refuge to be Expanded and The Death Penalty Confirmed for Murder – Deuteronomy 19:8-13.
Israel Defiled the Land and Was Judged – Psalms 106:35-42.
Manasseh Filled Jerusalem with Innocent Blood – 2 Kings 21:1-16.
The Righteous Reign of Josiah
- Hilkiah Finds the Law of God
- Josiah Repents Before God
- Judgment is Prophesied, Josiah’s Heart for God Rewarded
- Josiah Made a Covenant with God
- Josiah Ended Baal Worship and Put the Priests of Baal to Death
- Yet, The LORD Would Not Pardon!
Which the LORD Would Not Pardon – “And the LORD sent against him raiding bands of Chaldeans, bands of Syrians, bands of Moabites, and bands of the people of Ammon; He sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the LORD which He had spoken by His servants the prophets. Surely at the commandment of the LORD this came upon Judah, to remove them from His sight because of the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he had done, and also because of the innocent blood that he had shed; for he had filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, which the LORD would not pardon.” (2 Kings 24:2-4 NKJV)
Forgiveness for the Shedding of Innocent Blood – Deuteronomy 21:1-9.
We Must Rescue Those Unjustly Sentenced to Death – Proverbs 24:11-12 – “Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, ‘But we knew nothing about this,’ Does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?” (NIV)
It’s Time for America and the Church to Return to God
2 Chronicles 7:13 ‑14 — “When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (NKJV)
