Calling all Christians..

Do you think that God REALLY forgives abortion? Explain why you think so. It says right in the Bible "do not suffer the children". Thank you for your input.

  • I think God can forgive anything when you have a truely repentant heart.

  • The Bible is full of scriptures about forgiveness too. What about gluttony, gossiping, stealing, lying? To God, they are all the same. Yes, He forgives anyone for abortion, as well as any other sin, as long as they come to Him with a truely repentant heart asking for forgiveness.

  • Jesus came to be the mediator for us so God can forgive ALL sins. If he did not his death would have been in vain. Secondly Suffer in that text means to forbid or to delay. When Jesus was blessing the children the disciples were agitated and did not thin they were important so Jesus told them do not forbid them to come because heaven is for them also. When a woman gets an abortion and realizes the wrong in her actions she has not committed the unpardonable sin which is blasphemy against the Holy Ghost. (I feel that a person must have an experience with the Holy Ghost to blaspheme against it.) Everyone without knowledge of God sins and he has promised to freely forgive them.

  • I believe as long as they are still alive they have the opportunity to be forgiven.

  • cont. Just because you have become a "Christian" does not mean you will not make mistakes. The mistakes a believer makes in their life of following Christ only makes them a wiser Saint of God. They will be able to share their experiences with someone else who have made the same mistakes they have and tell them how to get back up and keep moving. Born again believers are not "perfect" they are striving for perfection through the example Of Jesus Christ, which requires bumping our head sometimes along the way.

  • There is only one unforgivable sin. If your heart is truly sorry, God will forgive you for the abortion.

  • Christ's blood doesn't have eyes. It doesn't differentiate between the sin it covers, it just covers it.

    You just have to ask. (and mean it)

  • Yes, I do!


    God forgives EVERY SIN except the sin against the Holy Spirit.


    That forgiveness includes abortion, paganism, homosexuality, etcetera ... In Christ Jesus you are NEW CREATION; the past is finished.

  • Every person is guilty of killing the Son of God, because it is our sin that kept Him on the Cross. And He promises us that His death paid the penalty for all sin, once and for all. His resurrection conquered the power that death has over us.
    So, yes, I truly believe that abortion is forgiven when a person comes to accept Christ's sacrifice for their sin.
    Does that mean that a person won't suffer, mourn, or have physical/mental issues since they are forgiven? No, but it does mean that we can be right with God. What joy!!!
