Is abortion a sin? If you abort your baby, you’ll let demons in
Terminating a pregnancy is a frightening experience you should never have to face.
However, if you’re pregnant and considering abortion, have you already imagined a disastrous future if you keep your baby, one with suffering, money problems, and pain?
If you don’t disrupt your pregnancy, what kind of life will your child have?
No matter what you’ve been told…
No matter what you suspect…
No matter what you were taught…
Abortion isn’t mentioned in the Bible.
But killing is.
Yes. Controversy surrounds abortion. Makes sense if you delve into the theories surrounding reproductive freedom:
“The Bible doesn’t say thou shalt not commit abortion;” “no one can tell a woman what to do with her body;” “there are no spiritual consequences of abortion.”—disinformation a lot of people believe.
Is abortion a sin? Yes. But terminating a pregnancy isn’t an unforgivable sin. The Bible doesn’t mention abortion. Neither the old testament, Jesus, Paul, or the disciples warn against abortion. However, the Bible does say: “You must not kill.” And because the Bible doesn’t address abortion, it also doesn’t discuss fetal development or at which stage of pregnancy a fetus has the right to life. A child forms in the womb from conception, and a baby already begins to move between 16 to 17 weeks after fertilization.
“You must not commit adultery. You must not kill. You must not steal. You must not covet.” These—and other such commandments—are summed up in this one commandment: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Romans 13:9
Life begins at conception
God knows your child
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:13-14
The unborn have the right to live, but a fetus cannot live apart from its mother.
If you want to have an abortion, you’re probably not in a happy relationship with your spouse, or you’re not married. God isn’t prof-life; he’s pro-sinless-life. In other words, holiness and obedience matter in all areas of our lives.
Religious people give God Sunday mornings, but when you have a relationship with Jesus, he gets involved in your finances, friendships, and family. Being a Christian means God leads you into prosperity in every area of your life.
Nonetheless, he needs your cooperation.
If you abort your pregnancy, you stop your baby’s development—you end a life—a life God is forming in your womb.
“My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth.” Psalm 139:15
Remember: it’s never too late to start following God’s instructions.
Does having an abortion make being a bad person?
In all cases… no!
But a new dilemma will lurk in your life, one that will loom whether you believe in evil or not.
LIFE – BABY = NOT ALL WILL BE OKAY
If you terminate your pregnancy, a new set of problems will find you…
“As God does nothing without faith, Satan does nothing without sin,” says pastor and author Vlad Savchuk in his teaching on demons. “It’s usually disobedience that opens the door to demonic activity,” continues Pastor Savchuk.
“Jesus found him in the Temple and told him, “Now you are well; so stop sinning, or something worse may happen to you.” John 5:14
But if you’re not on satan’s turf—in sin—demons cannot touch you.
However, if you’re living in unrepentant sin… evil spirits usually mess with your stuff.
Your car. Your dog. Your job.
But that’s only if they can’t kill you.
“One of the reasons we don’t sin as Christians isn’t just so we stay away from jail and don’t go to hell […]. The reason why we don’t sin as Christians is so satan stays away from us. If there is no heaven and hell, if there is no eternity, I still wouldn’t want to sin, just because I don’t want to have a thief in my house.”—Vlad Slavchuk
What you experience daily is reality. Facts. But reality isn’t truth.
You can follow steps to get out of a spiritual rut, have your prayers answered, and experience supernatural finances.
“My promises are not for the world.”—God
It’s true; God’s promises and blessings are for those who follow His instructions. And it’s never too late to follow his instructions.
The greatest weapon satan has?
Convincing you he doesn’t exist and that the things that happen to you—good or bad—are random. A world with no creator. And no devil.
Who can you trust?
Who will support you if you keep your baby?
If you’ve had an abortion…
If you’re thinking of having an abortion…
Or if you’re about to have an abortion…
And you want to end the tailspin you’re in and stop the dark thoughts you’re having…
I know someone trustworthy who can help you.
The question is…
Can you trust someone you can’t see when all your circumstances scream he doesn’t exist? Can you muster up the faith to believe in God if you don’t currently have a relationship with him?
I’m not talking about “imaginary” help either: the other realm is more real than this world.
According to Dr. Bill Winston of Living Word Christian Center, there are two laws working at the same time on earth:
- The law of the spirit of life
- The law of sin and death
The law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus is higher than the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2).
However, if you don’t know Jesus, you’re limited to the laws of this earth.
But when you know Jesus…
You can operate by a different set of laws.
The Holy Spirit is dependable, genuine, and has a no-fail approach to solving problems—there’s nothing you can say to him that’s off-limits. God will support you, guide you, and show you what to do next. He is for you.
Which law will you choose?
Your life will never be ruined for doing the right thing.
Talk to God.
Your future with(out) abortion
To abort a baby is an emotional experience for a woman. It reminds me of Mary Magdalene when she was caught in the act of adultery… how the Pharisees brought ONLY her to Jesus. Was she committing adultery by herself?
If you’ve fallen pregnant, the man you conceived the child with is equally responsible.
John Piper from Desiring God has a teaching called, Doing The Right Thing Never Ruins Your Life. I believe if America banned abortion, the country wouldn’t be poorer but richer. God would defy earth’s natural laws if we please him. The land would heal, people would make more money—and it wouldn’t make any sense.
And this is what God wants: for people to do the right thing even when it’s difficult.
Is abortion in the Bible? No person in the Bible had an abortion. And child sacrifice isn’t abortion. Neither the old testament, Jesus, Paul, or the disciples mention abortion. But the Bible clearly states that we must not kill. Perhaps abortion isn’t addressed in the Bible because they didn’t have the sterile equipment to perform an abortion or the pill that induces abortion. If unwanted pregnancy had been discussed, a woman might have butchered herself in trying to end her pregnancy. The Bible is full of wisdom, even when it’s silent on a topic.
Does God forgive abortion? Yes. But God’s heart pains when one of his children kills a baby, a baby he knits together in the mother’s womb. God looks at the woman’s motivation to terminate her pregnancy and her understanding of the sanctity of life. I believe if a woman has an abortion, God will discipline her. Our sins have been paid for, but God still disciplines us today. Yet discipline isn’t disqualification, nor is it smiting a person with sickness.
Unfortunately, sin—abortion—opens doors to the demonic.
Does the Bible mention abortion? No. But abortion is mentioned indirectly when we are told not to kill.
Can abortion be compared to child sacrifice? No. You are not offering your baby to demons, idols, or gods. A woman who wants to terminate her pregnancy doesn’t believe God will provide for her. But God is not a man that he should lie.
“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
The bottom line
Like a mistake you want to cover, in the end, abortion is usually synonymous with secrecy. You can conceal an unwanted pregnancy from people, but sin is never “hidden.”
If you’re thinking of having an abortion… Consider the baby—the life—God is forming in your womb. And don’t make a decision until you do one thing...
The most important thing you can do?
Have an ultrasound.
“Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:15
However, if you’ve already terminated your pregnancy, you know abortion carries a stigma, even amongst some Christians. After you’ve asked God for forgiveness, your next step is to seek counseling from a psychologist, who has to keep your information private, or visit a church outside of your town to receive post-abortion counseling and deliverance.
If you’ve repented and still feel guilt and shame…
It’s not about you.
Only God can blot out our mistakes. And the Father paints primarily with ONE color.
It’s all about Jesus.
At true repentance, Jesus stands between you and the Father. And God can’t see your sins through the stained blood at his feet. The color is flawless, blinding—and too brilliant for him to notice anything else.
God washes your sins away with Jesus’ blood.
Your shame and condemnation?
