What Does the Bible Say about Abortion? 

What Does the Bible Say about Abortion? 

Here is a great article from Tamela Turbeville. She has a desire for every woman with a difficult past to know God loves them. She is wife to Richard, and mother to three grown sons and two beautiful daughters-in-law. When doing what she loves most – studying God’s Word, reading and writing – she is surrounded by her six rescue dogs in her small office in south Arkansas.

There is no question the subject of abortion is a controversial topic. Nearly every day, news reports cover the fast-changing laws and the heated clashes between pro-life and pro-choice proponents. Both sides of the issue stand firm on their beliefs and rights.

Often if you are not on the side of the loudest advocates, you may feel as if you are under attack by both the world and the enemy. The world calls the choice of abortion a right, but what is the position of Christ-followers on the subject?

As followers of Jesus, our stance should align with God’s. Now, more than ever, our voice should speak truth against the enemy, and the best defense against the world and the enemy is knowing the truth found in the Word of God.

The Bible is clear that God is the Creator of life and all life is precious, born and unborn. So, what does the Bible say about abortion?

Words Reveal Our Relationship

I love prepositions, those little words that show the relationship between the words in a sentence. Some kids memorize the whole list of them, and others roll their eyes at the old explanation from teachers that you are not allowed to put one at the end of a sentence. They jump out at me in the Scriptures, and this morning I was reminded again of Christ’s love for us by three prepositions. We are in Christ. The preposition in demonstrates our relationship to Him. We walk in newness of life (Romans 6:4). Christ is in us, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27). I have put off the old man (Ephesians 4:22) that I may put on the new self, created by God in true righteousness and holiness (Ephesians 4:24). I locate myself by being in Christ, I change who I am by taking off the old self, and I become something new by putting on the new self.

These prepositions are a declaration of where I am in time and space. Prepositions don’t get a lot of attention in writing class. They aren’t the grand adjectives that describe the beauty or power of a thought, but in many ways they put together the pieces of what is being communicated. And so it is with our lives. The difference in my life is best described by what locates me – a preposition! Because I am in I am free. Because I have taken off I am not cursed. And because of putting on I am new. So why can’t these glorious little words dangle at the end of a sentence? Maybe because showing location and being the location are two different things. I can’t just say I am in. The power of my thought isn’t finished until I complete the sentence. I am in Christ. I am right where I belong, just like a preposition.
