  • Fetus is latin for baby.

    I just hope that someone understands and hears. I'm stepping off my soapbox for tonight. Goodnight and God bless, ladies.

  • It mentions people sacrificing their children to other "gods" and in truth people who generally get an abortion sacrifice their children for convenience so yes I fee it is the same thing. Do I judge them? No the enemy is crafty and he convinces people to do anything by fear and selfishness. I hate the d-vil and his fallen angels/demons! Blessings..


    These people too will be forgiven by Yahweh once they repent and be washed by Yahshua's blood. Meaning baptism.

  • Thou shalt not murder covers it pretty well. Murder is murder, no matter the age of the person or whether the child is inside or outside the womb.

  • In Second Kings, Menahem, leader of the Israelites, smote all the people who refused to follow him “and all the women therein that were with child he ripped up” (2 Kings 15:16). Later, in Hosea, we learn that because the land of Samaria rejected God, “Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up” (Hosea 13:16). Hosea decided to carry out God’s vengeance on the people by killing the unborn babies carried by the heathen women. He promised to “slay even the beloved fruit of their womb” (Hosea 9:16).

    Seems like your God LOVES to kill innocent unborn AND born babies and finds nothing wrong with it...

  • Umm... Indirectly it does. While I don't remember the exact passage there is a part that talks about if a man injures a woman and kills the child she is carrying it's grounds for stoning... But seeing as how they didn't have abortion options then that wouldn't kill the mother as well, that was about as close as they got. However, you also have to take in to account that this was part of the Messianic Law, which not all current day Christians believe is needed to be enforced 100% because it was fulfilled by Jesus. Also, as for the "thou shalt not kill" you must then get in to the discussion of when is a life a life? If a fetus is to young to survive without the mother is it still a life? How can it be? And this is not actually spoke of in the bible because people didn't have a need for that knowledge at that point... Point being, while it is mentioned - I wouldn't see that as the best passage to reference.

  • Easy to pick and choose verses to twist the word of God, eh ihartu? God did not send Menahem to kill anyone. The Israelites chose to be like the heathen around them instead of following God. Menahem took it upon himself to kill those people because they wouldnt yield themselves to him.

    As for Hosea, those chapters were saying thru Hosea by God that destruction would happen because they went against God. He was prophesying before Menahem caused the destruction. Hosea's words were a warning. Had the Israelites turned back to God, Menahem wouldnt have happened. That was the way it was in the Old Testament. We live under a new law, Jesus. If you choose not to understand this, Im sorry. But God does not LOVE to kill anyone, as you would like to think. Far from it.
