The Biblical God is NOT pro-life, he advocates child murder, infanticide, child abuse and abortion?
Numbers 31:17 (Moses) “Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every women that hath known man by lying with him.” In other words: women that might be pregnant, which clearly is abortion for the fetus.
Hosea 13:16 God promises to dash to pieces the infants of Samaria and the “their women with child shall be ripped up”. Once again this god kills the unborn, including their pregnant mothers
1 Samuel 15:3 God commands the death of helpless "suckling" infants. This literally means that the children god killed were still nursing.
Psalms 135:8 & 136:10 Here god is praised for slaughtering little babies.
Psalms 137:9 Here god commands that infants should be “dashed upon the rocks”.
The murdering of children:
Leviticus 20:9 “For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.”
Judges 11:30-40 Jephthah killed his young daughter (his only child) by burning her alive as a burnt sacrifice to the lord for he commanded it.
Psalms 137:8-9 Prayer/song of vengeance “0 daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.”
Genesis 22:9 & 10 “And they came to the place which God had told him of and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood. And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.” It matters not that god let Abraham get out of murdering Isaac. To put a knife up to your son’s throat is child abuse.
( there are many many more verses like this one )
In conclusion I shall end this list with a verse that should keep the pro lifers in check. It is Romans 13: 1-7
“Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which god has established. The authorities that exist have been established by god. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what god has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he shall commend you. For he is god’s servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is god’s servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. There fore it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience.
This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are god’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes, if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.”
Clearly it is the job of Christians to obey the laws, and the laws of this country clearly state that abortion is legal. So too should Christians respect and honor that law. God commands them to NOT disobey, which entails attempting to get the law overturned. If god wanted abortion to be illegal he wouldn’t have appointed authorities to make it legal???

As far as your bible-ethics argument goes, a perfect loving God wouldn't be pro-death. The bible can be translated and taken in various contexts. Not all Christians are pro-life. There's a difference between killing a pregnant woman and a pregnant woman killing a fetus.
Christians will always follow the Higher Law, the Laws of God, before the Laws of Land. What if the Laws of the Land are corrupt or immoral?
Roe v. Wade declared that abortion is legal (in the first trimester), but that was a split decision then and continues to be debatable. God didn't appoint the authorities, the people did(in the Court instance, the President appoints and the Senate votes for Justices).
It seems that you have a very limited knowledge of Christianity and government.

So, your question IS......?
If you believe God to be all of that back in Biblical times, why aren't you honoring Him now? People come and go on the scene of life, but God remains the same, Faithful towards us. He is a holy, pure, and perfect God that made heaven and earth, and all they consist of. (John 1:3; Colossians 1:15-19)
If you know that much about Him, you are in the wrong position. You should be postrate before Him knowing He can do all these things!!Source(s): Isn't it funny how we think we got God pegged and cannot even correct ourselves here on earth with truth. We cannot begin to un-cover God, He is too vast!

Ha a classic pasting from the goofiest websites ever. ^_^
There are plenty of rebuttals for your wall of pasted text so I'll just tackle the bottom part.
Any law that is against Gods word does not need to be followed take Daniel worshiping God instead of a statue like the law told him to.
Lastly how does attempting to get a law overturned equate to the breaking of said law. That's like saying that if I try and get the speed limit decreased in my neighborhood I'm breaking the speed limit.

Lying will not make it so....
Abortion is Murder.....
The penalty for an unrepentant murder is eternity in Hell..
God is the sovereign ruler of the universe who is from everlasting to everlasting… and God can dispose of his creations any way he sees fit. God is the potter, and we are merely the clay. Also, ask yourself this question: does the pauper ask the King why he is allowed to do something? Then who are you, O! Little one to question the King of the universe?

You do not understand the written Word of God. When reading it, you need to determine who, what, why, where and when. You are not doing that.
The Bible contains 66 separate books, which were written by thirty six men who were chosen by God to script His words. This took place over 1600 years and the evidence is in the events and the purpose of the scriptures.
The purpose of the entire Bible is to tell us about our condition of being separated from God because of our sins, God's plan to bring a Savior to die in our place for our sins, Jesus' birth, life, death and resurrection, that God's prophecy has taken place and about our invitation to belong to God as His adopted children through acceptance of Jesus Christ as our Lord and our Savior.
The Bible is God's written Word to us.
It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.
“Above all you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” 2 Peter 1:20-21. (New International Version)
Breakdown of the Bible
36 human authors inspired entirely by God over 1600 years.
66 separate books
39 Old Testament
Genesis- The creation of the world, sin, flood and birth of Israel
Exodus to Esther- History of the nation of Israel
(This is where many people have a problem. These books are concerning the nation of Israel and God's dealings with them and their enemies. They are not laws for us today.)
Job to Proverbs- the books of poetry and wisdom
Isaiah to Malachi- Prophecy or foretelling of the future events to come.
27 New Testament
Matthew to John - Four Gospels representing the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ now with all authority in Heaven and earth.
Acts- Birth of the Church (The Bride of Christ)
Romans to Jude - Letters to the Churches
Revelations - The ultimate future plans for: The Church, Heaven, Hell, a New Heaven and a New Earth.
Here are some Bible Study Resources for anything you may want to look up:

Didn't Adam and Eve sin? What was the penalty? Did God lie? You need to go back and read the bible since obviously you don't know what you are posting. Posting passages out of context.
- kdanleyLv 79 years ago
Did you find this out all by yourself or did you copy-and-paste it from some atheist's website?
Context is key. It is dishonest to take passages out of context to support your own bias. People like you use these passages to rationalize your rejection of God's Word. It is appalling that some atheists think they are morally superior to God, Himself.

You're correct, but sense all the messed up stuff stems from the old testament, christians try to justify it by saying 'These rules where for the israelites blahblahblah'. This doesn't justify ****. According to the Bible, the christian God NEVER changes. God gave these rules to the israelites in the old testament, so he would still advocate child murder, etc today, since he never changes
The Bible is a work of fiction.
and also, Satan never killed anyone in the Bible. Satan only ever tempted people; he never destroyed 99% of the planet like God did.

God is the author of life; therefore, he has the authority to give and take life as he pleases.
You are NOT the author of life, nor is any woman.
God abhors taking the life of the innocent ... and would destroy entire cities for the practice of child sacrifice.

I don't owe you any taxes, nor respect, but you do make the case for retroactive abortion.
