Thought, Mind, Deed

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.” 2 Corinthians 10:3‭-‬4 NASB

What are your thoughts on life? Does it begin, as God says, at conception? Does life begin when the heart begins to beat at around 6 weeks? Does it begin when the arms, hands, fingers, and toes are fully formed at around 8 weeks? Is it by the end of the third month, when the body and organs are fully formed? The fourth month, when finger and toenails and eyelids and eyelashes appear? Does it begin in the sixth month, when fingerprints become visible? At what point, exactly, does life begin?

While you think about that, I have another question for you. Are you opposed to killing and utilizing baby animals for food?

At this time, abortion is legal in this country, right up to the moment of birth with the “partial birth abortion.” Not in every state, but it is available, and Amnesty International, along with Planned Parenthood are pushing for it to become the law of the land. Now, there are people pushing to legalize post-birth abortion. Do you understand that? Post-birth. That means after the baby is born. Is that murder?

I confess that as a young woman, I was taken in by these groups and pushed their agendas. I’m embarrassed and ashamed that I did that. Where do I get off deciding which innocent child will die? Let’s not get this confused with capital punishment. Capital punishment is for the adult who knowingly and freely killed. How can we apply it to a child who hasn’t even drawn a breath? What if someone wants to kill you? Should they be allowed to?

“For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!” Psalms 139:13‭-‬17 NASB

Just wanted y’all to think about all this, especially with election season here. How do I feel about this? What do I truly believe is right? How does the person I support feel, act, believe?
