… what if we applied the “golden rule” to abortion?

… on a post on Twitter the other day, a man who claims to follow the Man Who was called “The Prince of Peace”, “The Lamb of God”, “The Bread of Life”, “The Living Water”, “The Chosen Servant”,

“The Christ”

.. was posting some things that i found extremely foul and abusive.  intermixed in his foul comments were praises of adoration for President Donald J. Trump.

.. when i told this gentleman that

you can’t serve The Christ and Trump,

he slapped me with THE whopper of all whoppers …

“I suppose you voted for Abortion?
What’s God say that He hates?”

… and i think of “the golden rule.”

… this was the primary lesson of the Man called Christ.  it is recorded in the Book of Matthew, that He said;  “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 7:12)

… this is recorded in two of the books of the New Testament as being taught by Jesus to the people who had gathered to hear him teach and has been taught as a central and core doctrine of every Christian Church since the beginnings of what was first called ‘the church’ in the English translation of the book of Matthew, where Jesus said;

If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.” (Matthew 18:15–17)

… and then i think about ‘abortion.’

… i think about the woman who must consider this option.  i can’t think of a single circumstance that would be anything but at the least scary to consider going through an embarrassing and sometimes quite painful operation as a remedy.

… in the case of something as horrific as a rape, i could not imagine being forced to live with the memory of the pain every day for nine months, if i did not want to.

… every day a reminder that the horrific violence perpetrated against me was actually growing inside me.

… don’t get me wrong.  i support anyone who would also want the keep the product of this evil event, but i am truly thankful that i will never have to face that.

… i am a man.

… and i am a follower of the Man Who was called the humble servant, Who was recorded as saying,

And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” And he took a child and put him in the midst of them, and taking him in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me.” (Mark 9:35–37)

… and i can hardly believe the deception of these days …

The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9–12)
