The Bible Does NOT Condemn ALL Abortions!

Interesting Point: Babies under 1 month of age had no monetary value!

In (Leviticus 27: 6 and Numbers 3: 15-16) the Bible states that an infant less than a month old has no value as Moses only counted infants older than one month of age to have a monetary value!

Numbers 3: (15-16) NIV
15 "Count the Levites by their families and clans. Count every male a month old or more."
16 So Moses counted them, as he was commanded by the word of the LORD.

Leviticus 27: 6 NIV
6for a person between one month and five years, set the value of a male at five shekels of silver and that of a female at three shekels of silver

The point of me bringing these points up is for these points to be thought provoking enough so that people will see that no person should judge/ condemn another person in a hateful way for having an abortion as this spreads negativity and division among people rather than love.  If you want to express your opinion then do it with LOVE! For example, tell the lady that you would hate for her to regret having the abortion later in her life, or help the lady find a family to adopt her child!

A man who so misunderstands the very nature and character of God so as to say that a child has no value is simply deceived. It's preposterous to take Scripture so out of context to come to the conclusion you've reached. Psalm 139 overrides these two Scriptures you've so haphazardly quoted here. I pray you begin to understand that Scripture interprets Scripture. God's Word is consistent and He does not deviate from it. He values life because we are the ones who worship and glorify Him. He doesn't share His glory with another. He wants all to worship Him, not just the ones that slipped through the cruel fingers of abortion.

Did you know that God commands for pregnant women to be ripped open?

In Hosea Chapter 13 Verse 16 the Bible states, God states “The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed into the ground, THEIR PREGNANT WOMEN RIPPED OPEN.”

In Isaiah Chapter 13, the Bible states, “in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of HIS fierce anger their children shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished. They shall have no pity on the FRUIT OF THE WOMB.

Abortion is obviously necessary to God, in certain situations

It's quite easy to see that the killing of children in the womb is nothing but an act of furious wrath and judgment from God. God is Judge and the only one worthy of such position. James 4:12 "There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor?" If you want to make it acceptable for abortion by choice, you have placed yourself in position of Judge. That is very dangerous, brother. For us to enact God's wrath is to think we know what is best for Him. Nowhere in the Bible does He take pleasure in the killing of children. Without faith, it is impossible to please God and anything not done in faith is sin (Hebrews 11:6 and Romans 14:23). God is not pleased with the action of abortion, therefore, it is done outside of faith and is sin.

Exactly GOD is judge and God dwells WITHIN. God will judge a person who has an abortion to be "right" or "wrong" by shaping their "heart" or "spirit." You are being judgmental, not me, by pointing your finger at somebody else telling them "Do not have an abortion" when you just stated that God is the only judge. You are stating that MEN (HUMANS) have the right to judge ANOTHER HUMAN on what is "right" or "wrong" for them when YOU JUST STATED THAT GOD (the Spirit) is the ONLY JUDGE!

It is interesting that you bring up FAITH as EVERYONE should have FAITH to figure out and think about what is "right" or "wrong" for them rather than letting other PEOPLE dictate for them what is "right" or "wrong" for them as you would!

My truth allows people to judge for themselves by HAVING FAITH and trusting in their own Spirit or heart (which is where God dwells) to do what is "right" or "wrong" for themselves which is freedom.

John 8: 32
32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Once again, people should only condemn/judge other people when they act with the intent to only offend someone else.

By the way, if you had or have a daughter and she was raped or she was told that if she did not have an abortion that she would die, then do you think she should be denied her basic human right to choose or not choose to have an abortion?

No, the point is not that it is sometimes right or wrong to have an abortion. The truth of the matter is that God never endorses it. The only time it took place was in His wrath or anger. It never once pleased God from the Scriptures you quoted. I'm not judging the hearts of those who have had abortions. I'm only saying the act is sinful. God redeems and forgives all who ask Him.

Let me ask another question in the scenario: will the baby also die or just the girl? Basically, are we possibly losing two lives instead of one if the abortion does not happen? As I said earlier, God values life so He would rather that only one died instead of both.

"God values life." If that's the case, then would God prefer someone to live to be 100 yet be miserable their entire life or would God prefer someone to die at say age 22 yet be happy? You talk about physical things while I'm talking about spiritual things. For example, you perceive "life" as simply breathing or being physically alive while I perceive "life" as "happiness, peace, and joy." There are many dead people AKA miserable people walking around right now. Always remember, that it is not the years in the life, but the life in the years!
