This Part Two of my “Lies the Liberal Left Wants YOU to Believe” Series. Make sure you’re not caught up in any of these for the sake of your conscience and your soul!
LIE #4: Abortion = Reproductive Rights
All of the abortion arguments are just as logic-less as the feminist ones: reproductive rights have as much to do with reproduction as the feminist movement has to do with femininity: NOTHING!
This is how Merriam-Webster defines reproduction:
Reproduction: The act or process of reproducing; specifically: the process by which plants and animals give rise to offspring and which fundamentally consists of the segregation of a portion of the parental body by a sexual or an asexual process and its subsequent growth and differentiation into a new individual; something reproduced: copy.
On the other hand, this is how Merriam-Webster defines abortion
Abortion: The termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus: as… induced expulsion of a human fetus; monstrosity.
The liberal arguments for reproductive rights never actually have anything to do with reproducing children. They have everything to do with the ability to kill children they conceive. And if your name is Peter Singer, you believe that parents should have the right to kill an infant or child whenever they like as long as they–not God–deem the child as not alive.
Scripture presents us with a very different view point:
Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:4, 5)
For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. (Psalm 139:13)
But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace… (Galatians 1:15)
God says life is from conception. Birth control to PREVENT conception is fine and has its uses in family planning as well as regulating a woman’s cycle when necessary. However, abortion–including the Plan B pill and its copy cats–are specifically created to END conception once it [may have] already occurred. But here’s the thing: you can’t undo conception anymore than you can unthink a thought. What you have conceived will remain so. You simply decided whether to kill it, ignore it, or nurture it.
LIE #5: Gay Rights = Civil Rights
This continual comparison between the Civil Rights Movement of the 50s and 60s to the Gay Rights Movement of the present day should make every black American shout to high heaven! (And not for joy!) God made people black. And a plethora of studies show that all races stemmed from one black race (read = Adam and Eve had to be black).
The Bible shows us that after the Flood, the African nations stemmed from Noah’s second son, Ham (Genesis 10). This also explains why Egypt is referred to as the the “Land of Ham” (Psalm 105:23, 105:27, 106:22).
There are also many notable black people in the Bible such as the Queen of Sheba who, as legend says, gave birth to Solomon’s son; the Shulamite Woman; Solomon’s Egyptian consort (apparently, Solomon had quite a thing for sistahs!); Hagar, Keturah (Moses’ second wife); Queen Candace and her Ethiopian eunuch; and even Simon who helped Jesus bear the cross.
And according to Galatians 2:38 and Colossians 3:11, we know that, in God’s eyes, men and women as well as those of all colours and ethnicities are equal. However, the Bible does not state “straight and gay He created them.” Neither does it state “there is neither straight nor gay…you are all one in Christ.” Why? Because skin colour and any natural attribution [of appearance] is a blessing from God. Homosexuality and the like, however, is a sin, an abomination, against God.
If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. (Leviticus 20:13)
The Apostle Paul describes this sin in detail saying,
Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting…knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:24-28, 32)
People are born black; they are not born gay.
Can you be born with a spirit of homosexuality, perversion, or sexual immorality? Absolutely. The sins of the parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents can be visited upon the children, even in the womb. This is called a generational curse. But a spirit is not a natural attribute. Spirits can be and should be cast out. Demonic yokes can be destroyed. Evil strongholds can be torn down. The Blood of Jesus still works. So with that in mind, I say this: people who are gay choose to remain gay. Whether by conscious choice, deceit, or lies, the choice is theirs because my Bible says:
[God] is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)
If you want God, if you want help–even if you don’t know God–you will absolutely find Him! He IS an ever-present Help in the time of need!
