As I pondered how in the world human beings can support abortion, this verse flooded my mind:
“The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9)
Apart from having Christ reign in our hearts through His Holy Spirit, they are desperately wicked. The passionate cries of pro-choicers is a living example of that fact. These women chant and rave, yell and swear for the right to murder a poor, helpless child as he grows tenderly inside his mother’s womb.
I saw a video of an ultrasound displaying a live abortion to a baby at 12 weeks (when most abortions are committed), and his heart began racing and he literally started jolting in an effort to move away from the sharp steel tools stabbing at his amniotic sac. When the tools penetrated and began dismembering the child, his mouth opened like a silent scream! Limb by limb, he was scrambled to bits like an egg with only a floating head remaining which the abortionist used a clamping device to remove from the mother.
I read one article where a pregnant abortionist confessed that as she pulled off the baby’s leg she was killing, her own baby kicked for the first time.
To know you are brutally murdering a helpless child, but still justify it is an astounding testimony to how depraved the human heart is without Christ’s love living within it and transforming it.
I pray that more and more women and men as well recognize their desperate need for a Savior. That in God’s holy eyes we are all wicked and need the blood of His Son to be cleansed and forgiven. No one is even close to good enough for heaven, only Christ Jesus Himself was worthy. He did not know sin, yet became sin for us and died in our place. His crucifixion is what we deserved. But in His incredible love, He paid the price for our punishment. And what does God require? We forsake our evil ways and thoughts and choose to surrender to His Son, who loved us and gave Himself for us so we can be forgiven and receive eternal life.
Why anyone would reject this vital offer is because of the verse I shared: our hearts are deceitful and wicked. Whoever rejects Christ has deceived themselves into thinking they do not need Him. And for you, I pray God’s mercy and revelation that your blinded eyes may be opened to His truth so you can be set free from the devil’s chains that are binding you.
