What Does The Bible Say About The Unborn Baby? By Leon Brashear

The Bible teaches that it is sin to kill an innocent human life on purpose

Genesis 9:6 “Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man

Proverbs 6:16-17 “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

Is there anything more innocent that a child in the womb?

A look at Luke 1 and 2 will show us how God views the unborn baby:

Lk. 1:41, 42 [41] And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
[42] And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

Lk. 2:12, 16 [12] And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. [16] And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

In Lk. 141, 42 John the Baptist is referred to as “the babe…in her womb”.  In Lk. 2:12 and 16 Jesus is referred to as a “babe” in a manger.

With reference to the word “babe” Vine’s Expository of NT Words has, ” denotes (a) “an unborn child,” as in Luke 1:41,44 ; (b) “a newborn child, or an infant still older,” Luke 2:12,16 ; 18:15 ; Acts 7:19 ; 2 Timothy 3:15 ; 1 Peter 2:2.” (www.studylight.org/dictionaries/ved/b/babe.html)

Luke 18:15 “And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.”

Acts 7:19 “The same dealt subtilly with our kindred, and evil entreated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live.”

2 Tim. 3:15 “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”

1 Pet. 2:2 “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.”

Please look at the words in bold type on this page (emphasis mine, lb).

The same word is used to refer to the unborn child in the womb and to the child after birth.  The devil has deceived many into believing it is ok to abort a child when in reality it is murder.

 

Will All Good People Be Saved?

Many times we have heard people say, “God will save all good people.”  This implies that there are good people in all churches who will be saved.  It also implies that there may even be good people who have never been members of any church who will also be saved.  Will all good people be saved?  What does the Bible say?

The Bible teaches that one can never be good enough to be saved by his own goodness.  If people could be saved by their good deeds, then it would not have been necessary for Christ to die for our sins. The Apostle Paul wrote:  “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2:8,9).

Will Christ Reign In Jerusalem For 1000 Years? By, Garland M. Robinson

There is a great deal said today about a 1,000 year reign of Christ on earth. However, it is not taught in the Bible. No scripture can be found that the Lord will ever set foot on this earth again. His second coming will be in the clouds and those who are the faithful will meet Him there and will stay there. “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
