An Unborn Life
January 31 | Taken from a message by Adrian Rogers
Let me tell you something, an unborn baby is human life. "Oh," they say, "it's not human life." Well, if it's not human life, what kind of life is it? You say, "Well, we're not sure."
All right, suppose I have a machine gun, and I know that somebody is standing behind a door and I fire that machine gun. That's murder, right? Now suppose I have a machine gun and I know that nobody is standing behind that door and I fire the machine gun. That's not murder, right? But suppose I'm just not sure whether somebody is standing behind that door or not, thinking there may be or there may not be, and I fire that machine gun. Am I, then, guilty if somebody dies? Yes.
You see, what I need to do is to be sure not whether or not that it is life, but before I can take that life I have to be sure that it is not human life. If everybody says we can't be sure, then I say, if you're going to err, err on the side of life.
Jeremiah 1:5a says, "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee."
